WIAW: Cincinnati Eats

by Brittany on August 14, 2013

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

I’m so excited to share my Cincinnati eats with you all.  As I told you all Monday, I’m having to make it a separate post otherwise you all would still be reading Monday’s post!  

Breakfast:

We went to First Watch since it has a gluten free menu!

First Watch on Urbanspoon

His:

Egg scramble over toast, potatoes (I ate half!), and fruit.

Hers:

2013 08 10 10 19 36

Egg white omelet with peppers, mushrooms, onion, and tomatoes topped with avocado and salsa, fruit, and half of Luvy’s potatoes.

Luvy and I still want to find a local spot for breakfast.

Lunch: 

Chipotle.

We always eat Chipotle for lunch.  Plus, it is right next to the outlets!

Tip:  Always ask for guac on the side… they give you more!  :)

Dinner:

Our favorite dinner spot in Cincinnati is Green Papaya.  We eat there every time we go to Cinci.

We always share the Classic Hot Fish with steamed salmon and the Green Curry.

Well, your Cincinnati eats are making me super hungry because everything looks awesome, especially breakfast!

I would have to say that breakfast is my fav meal to eat out. I usually do simple breakfasts at home, so it’s nice to get a fancier breakfast every once in a while.

Yeah, we REALLY need to go to Green Papaya! And, if you’re ever in town again, there’s a new place opening up nearby called Fusian- it’s basically the Chipotle of SUSHI! I like eating out for lunch, because then I only need a bit of dinner later on in the day, AND lunch prices beat dinner prices :)

Brittany August 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm

Oh man… I didn’t think of that! Yes… I much prefer lunch prices! Oh man… we need to try Fusian too!

I have never been to green papaya! I need to check it out. Love First Watch though! :)

Chipotle for lunch! Love it :D Honestly, I’d have to say that lunch is probably my favourite meal to eat out, mostly because it’s my least favourite meal in general, so anything to make it more interesting is a win in my books. Now if Chipotle would just get their act together and open shop in my city!

We finally got one here, but it is downtown and I never go there! :(

All of your meals look fantastic! Breakfast is so fun to ‘go out’ on :)

Your morning breakfast looks absolutely delish!

Danica @ It's Progression August 14, 2013 at 4:20 pm

It’s so not exciting but the foods I’ve been loving lately are brown rice cakes with pecan butter and a sprinkle of sea salt, macadamia nuts, and fresh peaches (of course) :)

You food always looks amazing!

My favourite meal out is definitely dinner, and for that I love any kind of ethnic food or some kind of funky/new age/vegetarian/healthy restaurant. Basically, anything that is somewhat different is my jam. I find that most breakfast places have similar stuff, which is why it’s not my favourite. However, I am always in the mood to be proven wrong!

oh man that breakfast looks great! Nothing better than a big old omelet in the morning.

Ok, I think I told you how I stopped at the outlet mall this weekend too, after running my half. Guess what? We also ate at Chipolte right there too! That would’ve been crazy if we had see you guys! :)
All your food looks deelish!

Oh my… we should have texted!!

I love breakfast food, but I don’t like to go out for big breakfasts. For some reason I like to eat bigger meals like that in the middle of the day…perhaps a late brunch? :)

I definitely would have stolen some of those potatoes…and put lots of pepper and ketchup on top!
