I had court in Dallas this morning. Like many mornings with court I didn’t eat breakfast at home. Luckily, Frank Crowley has a restaurant with breakfast served until 10:30.
As a public service, and to fill space, here is a quick breakfast review.
I ordered 2 eggs with 3 pieces of bacon, and a diet coke. Very low carb. The total was $4.32.
The first clue that this breakfast was not going to be top quality was when the eggs were scooped out of a warming tray. Now, I could have gotten eggs to order, but I didn’t want to wait. So I went with scrambled. The eggs were cold and could have been powdered eggs.
For a meat option I chose bacon. Bacon is really hard to screw up. I only ask that it is burnt and/or crispy. The bacon was in a nice pile so you could choose which pieces you wanted. I asked for the crispiest pieces. My request was not honored. I received luke warm greasy bacon. I hate greasy bacon.
Here is a picture I took. Having seen enough Top Chef I can tell you that this dish was not “plated well”. The food was merely lumped on the plate and not placed in a feng shui pattern with drizzles of sauce. However, this meal will be judged solely on culinary, not artistic quality.
Final Verdict- This meal was found to be guilty of impersonating a quality breakfast, and sentenced to 6 months State Jail.
