Macondo

I had the pleasure of going to brunch with one of my best friends, Phuong at Macondo Bistro in Houston last November. She's not always this emo-looking, I promise, I just liked this photo. After a weekend of bridesmaid dress shopping for her double wedding extravaganza (more on this later) we were pretty tired and we chose something close to her house.

By double wedding, I don't mean she's getting married simultaneously with another couple, and I certainly don't mean it's like that Mowry sisters Lifetime movie. She's having not one wedding, but two - to the same dude, too. She was a wedding planner for a while and is now a florist with her own little studio called Mi Bella Rosa. Two weddings means twice the awesome flowers, right?

It was one of those breakfasts where the company was more memorable than the food, so I'm struggling to recall the particulars of the meal itself.

I had an omelette with black beans and hashbrowns with a chai latte, while Phuong had the sausage, scrambled eggs, and plantains. I remember it being decent, but it was really more about hanging out with a good friend than anything else.

Oh yeah, Macondo is next to this joint. Remember Spaghetti Warehouse? Is anyone else amused by the fact that they own meatballs.com?
