We hit the University District Farmers Market last weekend to kill a little time before E’s Chinese school “graduation.”  Troy got this fantastic-looking pizza with bacon and an egg cracked on top from the Streetzeria cart.  I have to admit, I was a little jealous.  Here’s another shot when he was halfway done.  I miss eggs and dairy. *sigh*



Scrambled eggs, bacon, avocado, & tomato over seasoned potatoes. From First Watch, in Kansas City.

Yesterday T and I hit the road. He will be back next week, but this was pretty much the last time I will be in Texas.  We spent the night in Kansas City and hit up a place down the street from our hotel for breakfast.  This skillet sounded like a bit of a strange combo, but I think avocado and bacon make pretty much everything better, even scrambled eggs.

Desayuno burrito, from Julia’s in Wallingford. It had scrambled eggs, scallions, cheese and a ton of bacon, topped with salsa, sour cream and more cheese.
Chicken Katsu & BBQ Chicken from L&L. Yes, again.  The BBQ Chicken is more like a teriyaki than actual barbecue.
We are trying to hit up as many of our favorite places as possible before we leave town.  Even though we’ll be on the West Coast, and therefore technically closer to Hawaii, there aren’t any L&L’s in the Seattle area, so I have to get my fill while I can. I actually got them to give me both the tonkatsu and the curry sauce on the side for the fried chicken.  Ah, heaven.
Troy got the Loco Moco, with two fried eggs.  Also super yummy.  Something about rice and gravy always makes me swoon.  Reminds me of a now-closed diner we used to frequent back when we lived in Chicago that served Korean bbq beef with eggs and rice & gravy.
“Eggs a la Greek” – gyros strips, scrambled eggs and fried potatoes.
We’ve frequented Tony’s, a cute little neighborhood diner/cafe near our house, almost since the day we moved in, about 6 years ago.  I almost always get breakfast tacos, but today, I decided to try something a little different.  I actually have a rather unhealthy fixation on gyros, so it’s kind of weird that I’ve never tried this dish before now.  I ended up making little gyros, egg & tzitziki sandwiches with the pita.  Super yum.

Ham, mushroom, tomato and cheese omelet, with a side of hash browns.

My cousin was in town for a visit this past weekend, and we decided to check out the brunch at Blue Mesa. I’d never been there for brunch before and I have to say, I was astounded by the huge selection of food, including made-to-order omelets.  Most of the buffet items didn’t make for very pretty pictures once scooped and heaped on a plate, but it was all delicious nonetheless.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks around here and the fridge has gotten a little bare, so I had to make do this morning with an egg sandwich, which is usually Troy’s specialty.

We decided to check out a new place for breakfast yesterday.  On a whim, we pulled into a strip mall after seeing a sign for “Best Mexican Breakfast in Allen.”  Yeah, we’re suckers.  But a quick check on Yelp revealed that the claim was legit.  I found my sandwich looked better than it tasted; it was a bit bland (and light on sausage). Troy generously offered to swap half his breakfast burrito for half of my sandwich.  Burrito was definitely the way to go.
