Scrambled eggs, ham, fruit, wheat toast. $12
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA
This was ok. They give you plenty of ham, but the scrambled eggs were my favorite. They weren’t very light and fluffy. I still love their complimentary muffins though!
Blueberry muffins with butter.
Coffee Mission, San Francisco CA
This croissant was really good (and big!). I loved the flaky, buttery croissant and the yummy ham and cheese filling.
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.
Black pepper gravy. $6
The Wine Kitchen, Leesburg VA
These little bites were yummy and fun to eat. I liked the black pepper gravy too, but I think this ended up being to heavy to eat by myself. This would have been great to share with another diner. It tasted great though, but just too rich to eat the entire thing.
Canadian bacon topped with juicy pineapple tidbits.
Marcello’s Pizza, San Francisco CA
Hawaiian pizzas have always been my favorite and they tend to pack relatively fewer calories which is a bonus! I love the pizza crust at Marcello’s. It’s on the thinner side and has a great bite to it.
Colorful graffiti on garage door, Mission.
Hash browns, mushrooms and tomato, pineapple, cranberry raisin bar, roll, orange juice. Complimentary
Manila (MNL) to San Francisco (SFO), Philippine Airlines
Ugh, not the best way to end a vacation – with subpar breakfast food from PAL. The ham was a bit salty and the hash browns were super mushy. I never expect much from airplane eggs so I really didn’t dock PAL points for them. Oh well…
Ominous skies over Manila Bay.
Sweet style meat sauce with ham, sausage, and ground beef served over noodles and topped with cheese. Side 50 PHP
Jollibee, Manila PHILIPPINES
Mmm, I don’t think most Americans have ever tasted Filipino style spaghetti, but it’s the best! I love the sweet meaty sauce, and it’s super addictive. I could eat a huge plate of this and still go back for more. NOMS!
Valentine’s notepad meal freebie. This was the first time I’ve ever received a notepad with a fast food meal. Lol!
Fancy jeepney, Intramuros.
Succulent morsels of roasted pork nestled atop sweet banana peppers, draped with sheer slices of smoked ham, Swiss cheese, and caramelized onions, all melted together between a hot press. On a lightly tasted baguette slathered with aioli (seasoned mayo), fresh cilantro, and crowned with caramelized onions. $8.95
Paseo, Seattle WA
Omg, this sandwich was AMAZING! It had everything that I love, and it was overflowing with flavor. I could eat this every day. I’d probably die of a heart attack, but at least I’d die happy. Hehe. 🙂
Large tree with hanging tassel inflorescences. Anybody know what kind of tree this is?
Ham, grapefruit, beef, skinless longanisa, bacon, chicken nuggets, and garlic rice.
Boracay Regency, Boracay PHILIPPINES
Omg, I ate SO much for breakfast that morning! I really liked the options so I went all out and even had items from the dessert section. I think it’s OK to over-eat when you’re on vacation, hehe.
Chow mein, egg omelet, skinless longanisa, potato, French toast, blueberry cream cheese danish, and sweet roll.
Interesting view from the Main Wing of the hotel. The abandoned tower in the middle is actually some person’s hut now.
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!
Congee (rice porridge) topped with hard boiled egg, fried garlic, and green onions.
Stand up paddleboarders coming to shore, Station 2.
Banh lop choco. Chocolate chip pastry. 13,000 VND
Banh lop man. Mi ham cheese pastry. Each 9,000 VND
Tous Les Jours, Ho Chi Minh City VIETNAM
I don’t think we really needed these pastries, but it was hot walking outside and we needed to use a bathroom so we ducked into Tous Les Jours for air conditioning, cold drinks and a potty break. Lol! The pastries were unplanned, delicious treats! I did get scolded for taking pics of their products inside the store though. I’m still not completely sure why but I assumed it was competitor/ownership issue.
Iced Vietnamese milk coffee. 40,000 VND
Iced Americano. 35,000 VND
Huyen Sy Church, District 1.
With brie cheese, lettuce, tomato, and raspberry jam on wheat bread. 250 PHP
Cafe France, Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL)
This sandwich was a bit different. I had mixed feelings about the raspberry jam. One the one hand, I liked the fruity component, but I also thought that it was maybe too sweet for the sandwich. The balance was off.
San Miguel Light beer. Ahh, it’s always a good idea to drink at airports, lol!
Rizal Park, Manila.
