Southern Benny – Biscuit Love

Southern Benny - Biscuit Love
Biscuit, shaved country ham, 2 fried eggs, sausage gravy. $10
Biscuit Love, Nashville TN

This eggs benedict wasn’t much to look at, but I liked it enough. I especially liked the country ham and gravy. I’m not sure that the biscuit was my favorite. It had a texture of an undercooked one.

Omg, there was SO much food on this plate! I couldn’t begin to finish everything especially since it was a pretty heavy breakfast. The omelet was really tasty though and I loved the creamy grits. Noms!

Ol’ Dirty Biscuit – Ace Biscuit & Barbecue

Ol' Dirty Biscuit - Ace Biscuit & Barbecue
Fried chicken, sausage gravy, dill pickles, smoked pimiento cheese. $9 – Side of waffles. $5.50
Ace Biscuit & Barbecue, Charlottesville VA

I didn’t think this was very good. I think the biscuit would have been fine without the pimento cheese since there was already gravy. Also, the waffles were really limp and bland. Not my favorite breakfast.

Farmers lettuce salad – Volt

Maybe I’m just not a salad person, but this dish was lost on me. I guess I can appreciate the fresh ingredients and the techniques used to create all the components, but I still wasn’t satisfied eating this salad. To each his own…

Mimi’s fried chicken dinner – Hutch Bar & Kitchen

Mimi's fried chicken dinner - Hutch Bar & Kitchen
Steamed rice, sherry herb gravy, buttermilk biscuits, squash casserole. Per person $20
Hutch Bar & Kitchen, Oakland CA

Omg, talk about value – there was so much food on this plate for 2 people! We definitely took a lot of this home. The chicken was really good, and I was really happy about the steamed rice. It had a soft consistency almost liked mashed potatoes and tasted great with the sherry herb gravy. The squash casserole was really salty so it wasn’t my favorite. The biscuit tasted good, but were on the hard, dense side.

Hangtown fry – Brenda’s French Soul Food

Hangtown fry - Brenda's French Soul Food
Crispy oyster, bacon and scallion scramble with grits plus cream biscuit. $11
Brenda’s French Soul Food, San Francisco CA

Wow, another super heavy (but tasty) dish from Brenda’s. The fried oysters were pretty good, and they were big and juicy and filling. Omg, the grits was pure butter! It tasted great, but a couple spoonfuls was enough for me. The cream biscuit was also very rich. I liked the texture of it, but you really couldn’t eat the whole thing. Maybe I’m just used to eating more healthy lately so this dish was a bit too much for me.

Pulled pork eggs benedict – Brenda’s French Soul Food

Pulled pork eggs benedict - Brenda's French Soul Food
Over cream biscuit, poached egg, hollandaise, with potato hash. $12.75
Brenda’s French Soul Food, San Francisco CA

Wow, this was very tasty but oh so heavy! You really couldn’t eat both of them. Between the cream biscuit, pork, egg and hollandaise sauce it was just a rock in your stomach. It was good, don’t get me wrong, but a little went a long way! 😉
