Now we’re fast forwarding to places I went last weekend when I went to visit Alyssa in LA (aka Day 5 of Eating in LA). I drove up Saturday morning since Friday night traffic is killer. Driving up to LA Saturday morning was much more tolerable (until I hit pockets of traffic) and I made good time (about 2 hours). Alyssa and I headed out for breakfast upon my arrival. Alyssa was a little hesitant about coming here for breakfast since they usually only went for dinner but we gave it a shot.

I spotted Housemade Ginger Ale on the menu and ordered it straight off the bat. I love ginger ale for some reason and housemade ginger ale peaked my interest enough to try it. It was spot on – a lovely ginger taste without being overpowering with hints of fresh mint in the mix. Loved it.

This is Alyssa’s Braised Leeks, Bacon and Fried Egg Sandwich. I was also thinking about getting this but opted for something else in the end. It’s served open faced so Alyssa ate it with a fork and a knife. The bacon was super duper crispy – we speculated that they probably baked it in the oven to achieve such super crispiness without the extra grease lingering on the bacon.

As for me, I got the Soft Scrambled Eggs with Herbed Cream Cheese. I was in an eggy mood that morning but I don’t think even on my best days I could ever eat that much scrambled eggs. I’m pretty sure that’s about 4-5 eggs right there! The soft scrambled eggs were melty and good with the hint of herbs and cheese. While I was eating the eggs though I was wishing for some toast to eat with the eggs. I did have a side of some lovely crisp potatoes and a little bed of greens which I was surprised to find with a breakfast dish. Don’t usually see greens with breakfast like that! All in all I liked it though I left many eggs on my plate but would probably opt for something else next time since I got tired of eating my eggs after awhile.

I ordered a side dish though and it seemed up to cut up my meal just right. This is Baked Pancake with Meyer Lemon Custard. It’s basically a very small dutch baby pancake with lemon custard in the middle. I liked it a lot though it came almost at the end of our meal. It was light and slightly sweet (the custard made it quite a bit sweeter) and I enjoyed it a lot. I could have done without so much custard though, it made it a bit too sweet for me, but I still liked the lemony custard.

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
