NOPA: Brunch Hot Spot

DSC_0803So there’s this thing called brunch and people in San Francisco love it. My favorite spot is Nopa because they have a short menu with unique items. You can’t go wrong with any of their bites or cocktails. Here’s some tips on how to make sure you get in and what to not miss!

Cupcake Quiche.

When I was in Berlin last year, I accidentally found this amazing bakery with these scrumptious quiche muffins.  I thought of them the other day and decided to re-create them for our blog night when Chels and I get together.  It’s as simple as 6 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour (we used pastry flour), goat cheese, sea salt, and assorted fresh veggies (mushroom and tomato).

We left out the seeds from the tomatoes because we didn’t think they’d bake well.

It’s a tad messy during the process but we filled the cupcake dishes to the brim.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 mins and voila!  Amazing personal sized quiche for breakfast.

Enjoy!
