Days of the eggeries and local diners might come to an end, mass market Ihops, Denny’s, and others from the cloning machine are slowly taking over the breakfast market. But fear not, this ferret discovered a great place with his nose. Can this ferret find the right tasty yolk?
Steak and Eggs with a side of hash. The classic big breakfast dish among diners and eggeries. Thomas’s cut is thin, so there is not much difference between, well, medium and rare since they cook the steak with a nice crust. The exterior taste is of a Worcester like flavor. The hash browns on the side comes plain and does require some help from ketchup, egg yolks or salt and pepper. You guys should know the drill.
Stuff Cranberry French Toast is one sweet treat. The cranberry with the cream cheese filling, sandwiched between two pieces of bread dipped in a batter, is one tart treat that screams yum. Since the filling is pretty strong and moist, it doesn’t really require the usual additive of syrup and butter. But some may want the extra kick of sweetness.
Thomas’s Scambles Omelettes also comes in a skillet which is a nice touch. The scrambled eggs were very fluffy, mixed “Mexican chorizo sausage, jalapenos and jack cheese. A squirt of ketchup sure hits the spot with this dish.
Corn Beef Hash, this is a magical combination that pleases many people. There is the right amount of meat with hash with this dish. The salty and crustiness of the dish is perfect.
Pork Chop and Eggs with hash on the side. The pork chop is very flavorful and juicy. This is not the traditional dry or overly fatty pork chop. This pork chop is probably the best dish here. The combination of eggs and hash on the side makes for a very satisfying morning meal.
Lemonade, here is fresh tasting and tart with a touch of sweetness.
Chili Cheese Fries, the fries were cooked to a very crispy exterior texture with a soft fluffy potato inside. The crispy exterior is able to resist the soggy making of the chili. The spicy chili and smooth cheese mixed with the fries, created a perfect combination to hit the spot.
Chicken Sausage and Biscuit Eggs Benedict made with biscuits, tomato, chicken sausage, poach eggs and topped with hollandaise sauce and a side of hash browns. The chicken sausage is lean, the tomato, soft poached eggs, and hollanadaise helps with leanness of the meat. Have to be careful with this one, it might not be the liking of many people, but it is a heather choice.
