My friends came in for the weekend and asked us to join them for brunch at Hue. Hue Restaurant described as, “downtown Orlando’s critically acclaimed and award-winning urban bistro.” It is located in Thornton Park and serves modern American style cuisine. I have never eaten there before so why not start out with brunch!
I am browsing their brunch menu, “P B & J Turnover, Peanut Butter, Grape Jam, Crème Anglais, Marshmallow Fellow.” I thought to myself, I love peanut butter and I could go for something sweet.
I was not expecting it to look like this! WOW! I am so glad I ordered it because my dish looked so amazing with all the colors, textures and that sweet wonderful smell! The turnover is like a puff pastry or what you would expect to find in traditional apple turnover. The pastry puff is very thick and flaky with a healthy serving of peanut butter and jelly wedge between the heart of the turnover. I was a bit turned off by the marshmallow but surprisingly it went really well with the fruit taste of the jam and the salty after taste of the peanut butter. I could have gone without the Anglais sauce but since the pastry shell is pretty bland… I guess they didn’t want to chance anyone to bite into a piece of ordinary and plain.

I will admit that being at Hue did make me feel little hoity-toity as I am sitting there waiting, sipping on glasses of mimosas and snacking on a pretty basket of assorted mini breads. It was a good Sunday morning brunch… my friends had their choices of scramble eggs with potatoes and I got to indulge into fancy plate of peanut butter and jelly!
