The art of #hashtag searching is so underestimated and I learned this when I learned of Papillon.
When I first landed in Puerto Rico, I was on Instagram, trying to find out who was here, what to eat, and where to party. How lucky was I to come across the instagram of Bite Art which assisted in my search for Brunch on the Enchanted Island. Unbeknownst to me was that there was a small, great restaurant called the Papillon, 10 minutes away from my hotel.
As soon as I walked in, I peeped at the pastries by the door. I instantly loved this place. The decor was so cute and classic and the menu looked amazing.
I started with the mussels that smelled, looked, and were delicious. This woman next to me wouldn’t stop staring over at our table while I was consuming them. The mussels were cooked perfectly, had a sauce that didn’t overpower, and they were easy to open.
I ordered the Papillon Burger which has caramelized onions, mustard, cheese, and pickles on it plus it’s served with fries. It was very filling and I enjoyed the variety of textures and flavors in the burger.
There’s no way I was leaving without this decadent red velvet cake even though I was full by this point. It was well worth the binge.
