So for my 25th26th27thOK FINE 28th birthday, I wanted to have a ladies birthday brunch at a place on Fort Lauderdale Beach. As soon as I saw Steak 954 post a picture of their homemade pop tarts on Instagram, I knew that was exactly where I wanted to go! I am SO glad my friends and I went there.
We sat outside because it was one of those sunny-but-not-too-hot days. You could see the ocean from the table, it was beautiful.
In addition to a shitload of mimosas, I ordered the smoked salmon benedict served with dill hollandaise for brunch. It came with a small light salad, and some potatoes on the side. The smoked salmon benedict was phenominalllllll. The dill seasoning was not overpowering, it was perfect.
After we enjoyed the main course. We ordered a bunch of the homemade pop tarts to share. There was a strawberry crumb flavor, and a nutella and bourbon banana flavor. The five of us classy ladies straight up ravaged them. You would have thought we were a group of death row prisoners fighting over the last crumb of their last meal.
And just as I thought we were wrapping up the feast, our server (Hi Edward, we love you!) brought out a cupcake with a candle in it! I don't know if one of the girls told him, or if he overheard the birthday toast, either way - props!
Needless to say it was a successful birthday brunch. I was a little uneasy about this birthday, as it was the first one being away from my family (and The Pods are big on bdays). But my friends stepped up big time, and made the kickoff to my 28th year one I'll never forget.
