Pickled pork, poached eggs, horseradish hollandaise on rye bread. $19.50 NZD
Federal Delicatessen, Auckland NZ
We didn’t know what this was when we saw it on the menu, but it ended up being like a Jewish style eggs benedict. The pickled pork was quite an interesting change and I liked it along with the horseradish hollandaise sauce.
Two farm eggs, house-smoked salmon, baby red potato, onion, fresh herbs, lemon hollandaise, capers. $16
Eight4Nine, Palm Springs CA
This hash was pretty good. I liked the flavor of the smoked salmon and the hollandaise. The super small, chopped dish of melons really odd though and difficult to eat.
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.
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.
Drip coffee. $2.25

Over cream biscuit, poached egg, hollandaise, with potato hash. $12.75
Brenda’s French Soul Food, San Francisco CA
Wow, this was very tasty but oh so heavy! You really couldn’t eat both of them. Between the cream biscuit, pork, egg and hollandaise sauce it was just a rock in your stomach. It was good, don’t get me wrong, but a little went a long way! 😉

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: 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. Brown sauce is completely lost on me, lol!

Buttermilk pancake with smoked salmon, poached eggs, hollandaise, and peewee potatoes. $22
Norma’s, Palm Springs CA
This was ok, but the pancakes quickly became soggy from the luke warm hollandaise sauce, and the potatoes were undercooked. It would definitly be an “upstream” battle to find things that I absolutely loved about this dish.
Side of bacon. $4
This was probably the most reasonably priced item on their menu.
