Pancetta benedict – The Fat Hen

Pancetta benedict - The Fat Hen
Served with roasted new potatoes. $13.50
The Fat Hen, Seattle WA

This was pretty tasty. I loved the roasted potatoes! They were perfectly seasoned and nice and fluffy. The benedict was good too, but not the best I’ve had. I liked that the hollandaise sauce was bright and citrus-y though. The service was friendly but on the slow side.

Sausage, egg and cheese muffin sandwich meal – Burger King

Sausage, egg and cheese muffin - Burger King
Savory sausage, eggs, and melted American cheese inside a warm English muffin. Served with small side of hash browns and a small Seattle’s Best coffee.. $5.29
Burger King, San Francisco CA

I can’t remember the last time I was at a Burger King in the States. I don’t really like their food very much, but I was late to work and didn’t have time to eat breakfast at home so I ducked in to BK for a quick meal. The sandwich was what I expected, OK. But they do seem bigger that the sandwiches at McDonald’s though.

Hash browns - Burger King

Hash browns. These are the best part of a Burger King visit. I swear they must have MSG in them because they’re SO addictive. 🙂 But why don’t they call them tater tots? That has always confused me.

Seattle's Best coffee - Burger King

Seattle’s Best coffee. It’s super ghetto looking with the ill-fitting unbranded sleeve.

Eggs benedict – Cote

Eggs benedict - Cote
Ham and poached egg on a toasted muffin with homemade hollandaise sauce. £7.50
Cote, London ENGLAND

This tasted ok, but it was kinda cold. Cold hollandaise sauce is not appetizing to me especially when it starts congealing, ew! Actually, everything we ordered at Cote was just ok and nothing special. You win some, you lose some I guess…

Bloody mary - Cote
Bloody mary: Absolut vodka (50ml) with spicy tomato juice and celery. £3.95
Ugh, this tasted gross! It was pretty much just watered down, bland tomato juice. There was absolutely no spice (or alcohol) in there! 😦

Condiments - Cote
Condiments. Brown sauce is completely lost on me, lol!

Orange mimosas – Purple Palm Restaurant

Orange mimosas - Purple Palm Restaurant

Each $12
Purple Palm Restaurant, Palm Springs CA

So I’ve mentioned that the service here was HORRIBLE, but I forgot to mention that they also overcharged us for our mimosas. The menu stated $10, but we were charged $12. We were gonna order bloody marys, but they were out of it. What?! How is that possible? Sheesh, what a disappointment!

Classic eggs benedict – Purple Palm Restaurant

Classic eggs benedict - Purple Palm Restaurant
With breakfast potatoes. $17
Purple Palm Restaurant, Palm Springs CA

I was really disappointed in this place! We had brunch reservations so we stood at the front hostess area for 10 minutes while the staff worked on 3 tables. We finally got fed up and just sat ourselves down. The wait staff was super slow and bored looking. Sheesh!

This eggs benedict was overpriced for what you got, and the hollandaise sauce was cold. Probably because it took forever to get it out to us. Lame – get your act together Puple Palm!
