Once Upon A Time: Brunch At Amada

Amada Philadelphia Tanvii.com 12

I found these pictures on a memory card. They are exactly two years old from my trip to Philadelphia and had not made it on the blog, yet. Looking through these pictures I felt like they were from a lifetime ago. Everything about this trip feels so long ago. Right now, in my current state of mind, I cannot even think of going to a restaurant and eating. Only take-outs for me.

Pre-COVID I was out at least for a couple of meals every week. I miss a sit-down meal, a friendly ambiance, a change of pace. But no matter how mundane and boring I find this current pace of life, I am not ready to have a sit-down meal at a restaurant. Not even with social distancing. Not for a while at least. Until then, I will live vicariously through my own archives of pictures

I had made a reservation at Amada for brunch. This was back when I was crazy about French Toasts and no matter which city I visited, I made sure I went and had the most creative French Toast they had to offer. And Amada did not disappoint.

It was a charming Spanish restaurant with great decor and service. It was small so I am glad I had a reservation. The food is tapas style so you need to order a few dishes to make sure you have enough to go around (even between two people). We had ordered Patatas Bravas, Ensalada Verde, Shakshuka & Spanish Toast.

I'd say it is a great place for date night, or special occasion but not particularly when you are starving and want to eat a decent meal. Overall a good experience.

  8. We've been going out to eat inside a restaurant once or twice a week, can't stay in forever. It's been 6 months of distancing for us, so I cannot tell you how excited I was when the dining spaces opened! -Ada

  11. This definitely makes me miss eating out on a regular basis. I've been to... 2 restaurants? Since the lockdown lifted? But we wear our masks in and out, and only take them off to eat, and make sure we go to places that we know are going to be super on top of cleaning, and that exercise proper social distancing in-house. But this chill, relaxing vibe is something I seriously miss!

  12. I'm with you there, I'm not ready to go out and have a sit down meal at any restaurants yet either. I loved the pics tho, the food and the vibe of Amada felt homey and cozy. Like it'd be a nice place to pop in for a quiet date.
