#24-Eggs in Jail at Outerlands
If there is ever an excuse to go hog-wild at brunch it's having just run a 12K. So when we rolled up to Outerlands for breakfast it was business time. There were 8 of us so we decided to go ahead and order everything on the menu. It was a short menu, but still, I can't tell you how much joy it gave me to say "We'll have one of everything on the menu."
Like a boss.
Everything was really good but we were there in particular in search of the Eggs in Jail which is an egg broken into a piece of toast. I think this is also called "Toad in the Hole". My Mom used to make it for us as a special breakfast, she called it "Eggs in a Nest".
Who cares though, it was awesome? The bread was perfect and there was bacon.
The thing about Outerlands is that they serve solid-delicious food. No, overload of fat, no fancy tricks, just simple food with great ingredients in a cozy environment. The coffee was chemex-brewed, the almonds were being sliced preciesly into pefectly sized pieces right in front of us. The bread and jam were perfect. If I lived next door to this place I would want to eat there every single day.
Verdict: If you live in the outer sunset please eat there every day. Do it for me.
#25-Ube Ice Cream at Mitchell's
Have you guys heard of Ube Ice Cream?I have because I'm Filipino and I'm guessing the owners of Mitchell's are Filipino too because:
- It's named Mitchells' and Filipino's always seem to give there kids names like "Mitchell" or "Franklin". If it's an old man name, we love it.
- It's got an ice cream called Halo-Halo.
I rest my case.
Ube ice cream is a creamy dense ice cream made with a yam-like root. Also it's purple which some people find alarming. I of course find this to be awesome.
Verdict: Like ice cream I'll keep this short and sweet. Ice Cream=Good. Parking in back=Great. Reasonable Prices=Better. Supporting your peeps=Notoriously Awesome.
Go forth and eat purple ice cream my children.
