Breakfast #1 – Boracay Regency

Breakfast #1 - Boracay Regency
Pancit, fried egg, ham, chicken sausage, bacon, corned beef, beef cubano, and garlic rice.
Boracay Regency, Boracay PHILIPPINES

Wow, I was impressed at how many different items they had available for the breakfast buffet at the Regency. I only had a sampling each morning but there was a lot to choose from. They also rotated a lot of the items from day to day. The food was kept pretty warm and the service was great. I really enjoyed breakfasts at this hotel!

Homemade corn beef hash – Art’s Cafe

Homemade corn beef hash - Art's Cafe
Spinach, onion, mushroom, melted cheddar cheese Served with hash browns, 2 eggs scrambled, and toast. $6.35
Art’s Cafe, San Francisco CA

OK, this was kinda sad. I get that the prices here are super cheap especially for San Francisco, but I would pay a little more to get a plate of food that would actually fill me up. The skimpily thin layer of corned beef hash (which is mostly potato anyway) placed atop another thin layer of hash browns isn’t gonna cut it! Like I said, I think this place is cute but they might want to reevaluate their portions.

Corned beef hash – Plow

Corned beef hash - Plow
Yukon gold potatoes, onions, red peppers, whole grain mustard, two eggs and toast. $15
Plow, San Francisco CA

I was a little disappointed in this dish – it just seemed pedestrian especailly at fifteen bucks. Honestly, the best part of the dish was the bread when topped with jam.

It’s Tops Coffee Shop, San Francisco CA

I can’t really ever complain about corned beef hash! Especially when the corned beef looks like it’s from a can – noms, lol! This was salty, fattening and utterly delicious!

Traditional breakfast - Big Island Grill
Two island large eggs scrambled, served with corned beef hash patties and fresh fruit. $8.95
Big Island Grill, Kailua-Kona HI

I love corned beef and these patties were soft and tasty! David ordered this because it was healthier than the loco moco, but I was able to convince hime to get the corned beef patties even though they were an unhealthy choice, hehe.

Geez, this sandwich was large! I love corned beef and pastrami so I was in heaven. I don’t think I really needed the macaroni salad, but I ate it for good measure, lol!

Home corned beef hash – Red Cafe

Home corned beef hash - Red Cafe
Fresh mushrooms, onion, tomato, two poached eggs, and cheddar cheese. Served with hash browns and wheat toast. $8.25
Red Cafe, San Francisco CA

This small, busy neighborhood diner in the Mission serves delicious breakfast standards at very reasonable prices. The service is friendly and quick, but be prepared to wait unless you can squeeze yourself into the counter since this place is a popular breakfast joint. My food was no-frills, straight forward, and tasty.

Project 365: Day 110

Argh, I totally don’t wan’t to be at work today! It’s kind of a waste to work on a Monday since I’m leaving for Europe tomorrow. My flight isn’t until 4pm, but I took the entire day off because I just want time to relax and make sure that I’ve packed everything I need. I tried searching for my electrical outlet adaptor earlier but I couldn’t find it. Oh well, I know that Hubbs is bringing one. Why aren’t outlets standardized across all countries, anyway? Geez!

Corned beef Local Mission Eatery
With poached eggs and beer braised cabbage. $12
Local Mission Eatery, San Francisco CA

Corned beef Local Mission Eatery
The corned beef was super tender and flavorful and I loved the sourness of the beer braised cabbage. The eggs were poached medium, as requested by David, lol! I don’t know why people even order poached eggs if they don’t like them runny! They’re missing out. 🙂

Rudolph Valentino house 1926, Roosevelt Way

Former Rudolph Valentino house, Roosevelt Way. I’ve walked by this beautiful house in the Upper Market Terrace neighborhood many times, but didn’t know that it had previously belonged to the silent film star, Rudolph Valentino, in 1926 according to the plaque in front. Apparently, that’s also the year he died. 😦

Project 365: Day 56

Finished my training course today, yay! Now back to the office and the daily grind, sadness. The day has gone by quickly though since I had to work in two locations. Heading to the gym after work and getting dry cleaning on the way home. I need to pack some dress clothes for the Ohio trip in case we have a fancy dinner one night. Hope not since I want to keep it casual, but at least the food should be tasty if we do!
Corned beef sandwich The Sentinel
With cabbage, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese on focaccia bread. $9
The Sentinel, San Francisco

This sandwich was SO good! I love the soft focaccia and the corned beef was really delicious! I’m not sure if I’ve had Russian dressing before (I’ve read that Thousand Island is a variant though) but it worked well with the cabbage “slaw”. Noms!
