Last Saturday was World Foodspotting Day and to celebrate the first birthday of Foodspotting, several foodspotters around the world met up with others to eat and “spot”!

Chef Levin of Adsum in Philadelphia put together a special brunch menu for the day. The menu consisted of a breakfast poutine, fried chicken & waffles, and a specialty cocktail. The breakfast poutine had duck fat fries topped with brown gravy, sausage gravy, mozzarella curd, and a fried egg. The fried chicken and waffles were topped with a jalapeno maple syrup. Lastly, the specialty cocktail was called the Figure Study, consisting of SNAP, fig sorbet, champagne, and Peychaud bitters.

I’m pretty sure I would have gone with the breakfast poutine, especially since I’ve heard their super poutine off their dinner menu is awesome, but since I consumed poutine-ish fries the night before, I had to decline. My body just said no to the consumption of gravy covered fries twice within 24 hours. In lieu of the poutine, I went for the fried chicken & waffles. It was delicious. The combination of jalapeno with the maple syrup was interesting and tasty. Wish I had room to try other food cause the menu looked pretty awesome.

It was great to run into some familiar faces as well as meet some new ones. Huge thanks to Chef Levin and the Adsum crew, Alexis of teaspoons & petals, and of course, Foodspotting!
