Today was one of those days when circumstances took me out to breakfast, and I don’t think we have a breaky thread yet.
I went to the Egg & I on I-10 @ Bunker Hill but it’s gone, and a new chain outa Florida called First Watch is in its place. Don’t go.
Only one option for eggs made your way, a “Traditional Breakfast” which was all served cold, really cold. How is that even possible? Are the eggs prefried? Some rather odd specials involving lots of kale and some mediterranean eggs. The rest is omelettes, benedicts and carbs. I had a similar experience at the Snooze at Town and Country months ago and won’t go back there either. Their hash brown puck was actually still frozen in the middle.
My favs are Egg & I and Denny’s on Wilcrest but I’m always looking for options. I strangely like cheese enchiladas for breakfast. Those are available at Los Tios (weekends), Poblano’s (every day) and Aranda’s on N. Gessner (every day).
I don’t do weekend brunch much but I took the smalls to Brennan’s one weekend at the holidays for a pre-theater nosh, their first time of many I hope.
Let me know your favs.
