If you’re not familiar with Double Chin you’re missing out! Right in Chinatown Double Chin is the hottest Asian Fusion spot in the entire city. In addition to the delicious food, Double Chin’s owner Gloria Chin is the sweetest and a total #girlboss! Her and her sister Emily started Double Chin and the bakery next door Bao Bao Bakery. I was thrilled to visit Double Chin last weekend to meet Gloria and have their famous Boozy Brunch.
Let’s be honest, because of Boston’s stupid puritanical liquor laws, sometimes Boston brunch can be a little bit of a let down. In NYC, DC, or Chicago you have bottomless brunch, $10 bottomless mimosas, brunch happy hours! But I was seriously impressed by Double Chin’s Brunch menu. I started with the unicorn mimosa, think a regular mimosa on crack. it had ice cream and rock candy and was pure deliciousness! Its a lot of sugar so if you’re drink one I recommend going with a savory brunch dish opposed to a sweet one. Me and my friend Anastasia both went savory she had the Skillet Char Siu Pork Belly Hash, and I had the Crab Me Benny One More Time (if you don’t get the Britney Spears reference our friendship is over).
Regardless of what you get to eat you need to get a side of the hash! It was amazing even after I was way to full I kept eating that hash! If you like soft shell crab you will love the Crab Me Benny. Eggs Benedict and soft shell crab? It was amazing! This was my first time having Asian Fusion brunch and I was so impressed. I actually had a hard time deciding what I wanted to order, there were so many new options I had never tried before. I definitely get in a brunch rut and order my go-to dishes time and time again. Double Chin got me out of my comfort zone and served me the best brunch I’ve had in a while! We were way to full to have dessert but I will definitely be going back to try Double Chin’s epic desserts, recently they had a unicorn crepe cake on specials that blew up Instagram, they have so many other amazing desserts I am dying to try. They even mark the “insta-worthy” ones right on the menu for you!
Double Chin is in the cutest space, the location is really easy to get to. There is a fun porch swing (perfect for your insta), it is such a fun spot for a brunch with your girlfriends! Thank you so much Gloria for having us, if you are looking to make brunch plans this weekend I definitely recommend making a reservation. Asian Fusion brunch is the future, get on board! I love supporting women owned businesses, I am constantly impressed by their creativity, drive, and passion. If you’re a #girlboss tell me your story!
Double Chin provided complimentary brunch for me and Anastasia, as always all opinions are my own.
