Le Barricou

Our grandmother from Oregon once shared her experience with “the grapefruit diet.” This lifestyle consisted of eating grapefruit for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It didn’t last for long, all that acidity couldn’t be good for the stomach.

If you chance to walk past Le Barricou on a hot Sunday morning, you are sure to catch happy brunchers scooping mouthfuls of the “half grapefruit.” It is all you could ever wish for, and more. This juicy citrus is topped with fennel pollen, maldon sea salt, and sugar sprinkle. It’s unique mixture somehow fully counteracts any bitterness of the fruit, and brings out its hidden sweetness. My grandma would have surely succeeded with her diet if she had known about this recipe.

Also, if you wish to go on a more traditional sweet tooth route, their pancakes are fluffy and possibly the biggest you will ever set eyes on!
