Cheese omelet – Air New Zealand

Beef casserole - Air New Zealand
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.

Beef, pork, garlic rice, scrambled eggs, bacon, pancit.
Boracay Regency, Boracay PHILIPPINES

Ugh, I couldn’t stop filling my breakfast plate with SO much food every morning! I really didn’t have to eat so much and I wasn’t even that hungry, but I couldn’t pass up on tasting a little bit of everything. Hehe!

Chicken adobo- Philippine Airlines

Chicken adobo- Philippine Airlines
With scrambled eggs, sauteed mushrooms, tomato, fruit, sweet roll, dinner roll. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to Manila (MNL), Philippine Airlines

I’m sure most people wouldn’t think of chicken adobo as a breakfast meal item, but it is, lol! I don’t think there’s much difference in the kinds of foods that Filipinos eat for different meals. I’m all for it!

Scrambled eggs and chicken sausage – Philippine Airlines

Scrambled eggs and chicken sausage - Philippine Airlines
With bacon, hash browns, sauteed mushrooms, tomato, fruit, sweet roll, dinner roll. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to Manila (MNL), Philippine Airlines

Ugh, I was NOT liking this breakfast. The bacon was OK because it’s really hard to mess up bacon, but everything else was a little off. I’ve never been a fan of Asian sausages because of their soft squishy texture so that was already a point off. The eggs weren’t very good either, even by airplane food standards. The sweet rolls was pretty tasty though.

Grilled steak and egg sandwich – Stock in Trade

Grilled steak and egg sandwich - Stock in Trade
Grilled hanger steak, two fried eggs, pickled red onion, garlic aioli, wild arugula, chimichurri, toasted pain de mie, crispy skinny fries, and fruit. $13
Stock in Trade, San Francisco CA

This burger had a lot of great flavors, but it was super cold – EW! I think the server must have forgotten it on the counter for a long time before bringing it out. I was surprised that the skinny French fries stayed crispy and delicious though. I can only imagine how much better they would have been served warm. Kind lame, Stock in Trade!

Power poach – Grange Restaurant

Power poach - Grange Restaurant
Two eggs, whole wheat toast, apple wood smoked bacon, fresh fruit. $13
Grange Restaurant, Sacramento CA

Omg, the guy running the host desk was HORRIBLE! I walked in to a barely seated restaurant during breakfast service and he was way too busy on the phone. He made eye contact with me and kept talking, and even switching from the phone at the bar to the phone at the host desk. I’m literally just standing there watching him for almost 10 minutes. Some sweet busser finally had to come over and offer to seat me! And my waiter even apologized that I had to wait forever to get seated. How can an entire restaurant know that someone is waiting WAY too long to get seated and the clueless, idiot host doesn’t?!? This boggles my mind. I don’t make it so Sacramento very often, but if this is their idea of fine service I’ll stick to San Francisco thank you very much. Btw, my power poach was boring and bland.
