Tater tots, tomato, fruit, yogurt, coffee. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to Auckland (AKL), Air New Zealand
Airline breakfasts are never good, and this was no exception. The omelet had that weird dry and spongy texture, and the tater tots were super dry too. I didn’t even try the yogurt.
With country pork gravy, eggs over medium. $13.95
Orphan Andy’s, San Francisco CA
Why do I keep staying out SO late that I always end up here – lol! Another night, another usual order of chicken fried steak and gravy. Mmm… I’m not even sorry, lol!
Served with biscuits and gravy.
Egg, tomato, mixed herbs. $3.50
Arizmendi Bakery, San Francisco
I sometimes miss living near the Arizmendi on Valencia Street. I miss the fresh baked breads and other breakfast items. It was also convenient to grab something on my way to work. Yum!
Home fires topped with cheddar and jack cheese, bacon, ham, two eggs over easy, green onions, and side of salsa. $8.95
Harvey’s, San Francisco CA
I was dragged to Harvey’s by a friend again even though they know I really don’t like the food. This was ok, but not at all refined. Very basic…
Jim Neely’s Interstate BBQ, Memphis International Airport (MEM)
This biscuit sandwich was on the small side, but it was delicious! I loved the flavor of the smoked sausage and the biscuit was good too. The bottom was a little dry but the top was still nice and fluffy.
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.
A bed of sour cream and home fries, topped with sautéed portobellos, tomatoes green onions, with bacon, feta and cheddar cheese. Served with grits, biscuit, and honey. $12.95
Brother Juniper’s, Memphis TN
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!
Eggs over medium, sausage patties, grits, biscuits and gravy. $8.59
Blue Plate Cafe, Memphis TN
Omg, food in Memphis is definitely cheaper than in San Francisco. This was SO much food for less than nine bucks. It definitely isn’t the healthiest food – I mean the give you extra butter for the grits AND the biscuits and gravy, lol! It’s definitely flavorful though.
Two eggs over medium, hashbrowns, wheat toast. $11.59
Island Cafe, Oak Harbor WA
Hmm, this corned beef hash tasted weird. Perhaps there was too much vinegar or something, but it also had a weird reddish purple color. Not my favorite. At least the wheat toast was decent.
Sauteed chicken, turkey and potato hash atop arugula with sunny-side-up egg, wheat toast, yogurt, za’atar, syrup, homemade lemon olive oil dressing.
Aroma Espresso Bar, Toronto CANADA
This looked dry, gray, and boring and that’s exactly how it tasted. There wasn’t much going for this plate except that it was healthy. I’ve rather have tasty and flavorful over bland and healthy any day.
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.
2 poached eggs, crab meat, spinach, English muffins, homemade “cayenne” hollandaise sauce, served with potatoes and fruit. $14.99
Rick’s Cafe, Los Altos CA
This was good, but nothing really jumped out at me. I did like that they provided a lot of spinach. The potatoes (and fruit) were kinda sad though. And even the “cayenne” hollandaise sauce was lackluster.
