#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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
