Benedictberg – DGS Delicatessen

Benedictberg - DGS Delicatessen
Poached eggs, DGS smoked salmon, latkes, sumac hollandaise. $12
DGS Delicatessen, Washington DC

This was another disappointment. The latkes were over-fried and greasy, and the eggs were poached hard. They may have been sitting under the warmer for too long(?). That would make sense since the service was SO slow. I wasn’t a fan of the sumac hollandaise either.

Bottomless mimosa - DGS Delicatessen
Bottomless mimosa. Yeah right! We would finish a glass but the server was never around to give us a refill. They should really call it “bottomless mimosas if the server feels like taking the time to do his job”. #lame

Corned beef hash – de Vere’s Irish Pub

Corned beef hash - de Vere's Irish Pub
Two eggs over medium, breakfast potatoes, red bell pepper, red onion, Irish brown bread. $11.99
de Vere’s Irish Pub, Sacramento CA

This hash was decent. I liked the Irish brown bread since it was a nice departure from my usual wheat toast. It was a bit dry but was fine with the butter slathered on.

Lamb burger – Pinea

Lamb burger - Pinea
Harissa, feta, cucumber, yogurt, polenta fries. $17
Pinea, Washington DC

This lamb burger was really delicious, but I think seventeen bucks was a bit much for a lunchtime burger. Although the food was good, it was on the pricey side. The cocktail was also fifteen bucks, d-oh! I did like the tender, juicy patty, cool tzatziki, spicy harissa and trimmed lettuce. The polenta fries were also killer!

Old Square cocktail - Pinea
Old Square: Knob Creek rye, Remy VS, Dolin Rouge, benedictine, apple bitters. $15

Eggs blackstone – Lark Creek Grill

Eggs blackstone - Lark Creek Grill
Poached eggs, Zoe’s bacon, tomato, English muffin, lemon hollandaise. $14.75
Lark Creek Grill, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Mmm, this tasted great! And I don’t usually say that about airport food. I loved the all the ingredients in the eggs blackstone and the breakfast potatoes were fabulous! Why can’t the food at Yankee Pier be nearly as good? They’re the same restaurant group?

Mimosa - Lark Creek Grill
Mimosa. $9

Castro scramble – Cafe Mystique

Castro scramble - Cafe Mystique
Spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, cheddar cheese. Served with breakfast potatoes. $8.95
Cafe Mystique, San Francisco CA

This scramble was good enough I guess. It was nothing special. What I didn’t like was the horrendously SLOW service! Omg, move your feet, man! And the lone cooks needs to speed things up too! There wasn’t even many diners to cook for!

Oysters – Del Frisco’s Grille

Oysters - Del Frisco's Grille
Del Frisco’s Grille, Washington DC

Meh, I wasn’t impressed by the oysters on the East Coast. I prefer the smaller, brinier oysters that the West Coast has to offer. These oysters weren’t fresh tasting or shucked cleanly.
