Brunch at Llama Inn

It's not every day that Mr. T gets excited about a brunch dish.  In fact our recent visit to the Llama Inn might be the very first time I've seen him actually happy at brunch and that's even with the loud bumping music playing overhead. 

 The Llama Inn is a new Peruvian restaurant located on the odd stretch of land below the Brooklyn Queens expressway in Williamsburg. We were just stopping by for a quick bite but ended up staying all afternoon after this dish completely blew us away- the Beef Tenderloin Stir Fry.

Two perfectly fried eggs sat atop a mound of beef, french fries, tomato and slices of banana with a rich, slightly spicy sauce covering the base drizzled with rocoto pepper crema.  Everything about this dish was incredible- the meat was tender as a filet, the french fries somehow stayed crispy and the banana imparted a sweet tropical flavor that brought it all together.

In addition to the incredible food the other big draw was obviously the Llama theme.  Everything from the art work, to the coasters to the pens were all about Llamas. Of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try out a themed cocktail the Pina Collama.

Then we moved upstairs to their rooftop bar for a few Dolly Llama's; cocktail slushies made with pisco, lemon juice, red wine and strawberry shrub.

Llamas, rooftops, great food and drink; I see myself spending quite a few summer days at this place.
