Brunch is delicious at Gypsy Soul at the Mosaic District in Merrifield, Virginia. Now that the weather is getting warmer, plan a visit to this top-notch restaurant during the weekend to try one of these items. When I go, this is what I love to order.
Cracklin’ Chicken Skins
Yes, it is not a low-cal item on the menu but it is worth every bite. It is a crispy, pile of chicken skins that are deep-fried. They are drizzled with a sticky, sweet honey hot sauce. Indulge, it is worth it!
Duck Fat Beignets
Another item that was added to the menu for the spring is duck fat fried beignets. You can get them as an appetizer to start your meal or save room for them for dessert. They are served with a caramel sauce that you drizzle over the beignets. Frying them in the duck fat gives them a mild taste, and does not overwhelm the beignets. They are crispy on the outside and light and airy inside. Best outside of New Orleans.
UPDATE: Gypsy Soul has closed.
