My Best Breakfast
Posted by cmh gourmand on October 15, 2008
My best breakfast of all time was Adobe Eggs crafted by Ricky Barnes at his second (Short North) version of the Galaxy in 2001.
My second best breakfast was at Bette’s Diner – Huevos Verdes.
The Galaxy is long gone. Bette’s is in Berkeley. Breakfast is my 6th favorite meal (my order of preference is dinner, lunch, second Lunch, late night snack, brunch and then breakfast). I have always looked at breakfast as the meal that takes critical stomach space away from the rest of the dining I will do for the day. However, there is one breakfast item I will always make a special exception to my eating priorities.
The Chorizo, Black Bean and Sweet Potato Hash at Sage is heavenly. This dish mixes a very spicy chorizo (sausage) with black beans, diced sweet potatoes, onions, a mix of green, red and yellow peppers, with two perfectly fried eggs. The side of salsa can be used to tone down the spice a bit. The flavors blend together pleasantly with just enough kick to wake you up. This is the one breakfast entree that I will skip my hobbit style second lunch without thinking twice.
