In the tradition of celebrating Memorial Day in Philadelphia, we packed up and headed to the Jersey Shore. To people who are unfamiliar, I assure you the bad rep attributed to the area from the “popular” MTV “reality” show is not warranted. In South Jersey, the beaches are beautiful, the towns are quaint and the food is some of the best around.
One of my favorite spots in Cape May, NJ is George’s Place Restaurant. It’s a Greek joint and always packed so when we heard the hour wait time, we decided to keep moving. Just a few doors down on Beach Ave, we came across Y.B. Eat Place–the YB standing for “Younger Brother,” as in the younger brother to George’s Place Restaurant owner, John. We decided to check it out and I am so glad we did. There was no wait time, our server was friendly and the dishes were really creative, delicious and affordable.
Unfortunately, I did not possess the self-restraint to snap photos of the food when it arrived (on that note, check out the outdoor fire pits at the Rusty Nail for happy hour if you are in the town) but trust me on this one. We had an omelet with spicy feta and roasted red peppers, veggie eggs benedict, and a breakfast flatbread with sausage, onions, cheese etc. and some delicious sweet sauce on top that I wanted to bathe in.
