I have a confession to make. I hate bananas! In fact banana is probably one of my least favorite fruits. I just have a complex relationship with bananas; I hate eating them but I’m also aware of their positive benefits on people’s health. I think the only time I could find myself willingly eating bananas is when I’m working out because bananas are a great energy supplier. Most of the time, I hate bananas in fruit salads (too mushy to look appealing for me), drinks, smoothies, ice creams or yogurts. Without even trying to taste it, I was categorically opposed to the idea of eating banana bread. And it wasn’t as if my sister, who loves everything bananas, hadn’t tried to convert me.
Who doesn’t love Nutella? I haven’t met a lot of people who disliked Nutella. I’m among the group of people who would put Nutella on almost everything from bread slices to crêpes, not to mention using it as a dipping for fresh fruits like pear, apple and banana.
Last week, I went out for brunch with a group of friends, and one had the brilliant idea to take us to L’Avenue Restaurant. To be honest with you, I had previously heard of the place while watching You Got To Eat Here on Food Network months ago, and I promised myself to go there and to give it a try. So I was particularly excited to finally get to eat at L’Avenue. The restaurant is basically a ‘must-stopped’ for anyone in search for a good place to have brunch.
