Waiting zone to the left, restaurant on right

Dora here. Sounds about right. ๐Ÿ™‚

Donโ€™t be in hurry when you visit because tons of people have already found this gem, so there may be a wait.

Tight inside and always jammed!

Dora here. We’ve visited twice so far and the wait has ranged between 20-30 minutes. They could definitely use a couple more tables out on the front deck. Too bad it was misty. ๐Ÿ™‚

They could definitely use more seating out here

ย I ordered the Breakfast Chimichanga Grande special. Mexican rice and beans, onions, chorizo, hash browns, and scrambled eggs in a shell combined together to create a unique tasting breakfast. I’m glad I opted for chili on top rather than queso. The queso was super spicy, but the chili provided just enough heat. Overall, this dish was great.

Dora here. And gigantic! Good thing our son was with us to help you eat it. ๐Ÿ™‚ย I opted for something a bit…smaller. lol. Homemade Corned Beef Hash. Two light and fluffy scrambled eggs, chunks of corned beef and hash and homemade wheat toast…delicious!

Chunks of corned beef in the Homemade Corned Beef Hash. Delicious!

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us on a road trip (or should I say a plane trip?) to Brussels, Belgium and to Peck 47 Restaurant.

20160506_025856Looking for a breakfast spot, we ran upon this gem just down the road from our hotel. This intimate, hometown-type restaurant offers a variety of options with poached eggs and waffles or English muffins.

For my breakfast, I chose the Peck Special, two poached eggs served on chorizo and goat cheese waffles with bacon and psycho sauce and a side salad. (Dora here. Oh, I loved that psycho sauce!! What a kick to get in gear! lol.)ย This was a great breakfast combination, with the poached eggs being cooked perfectly, firm on the outside and runny on the inside. The thin waffle blended well with the eggs and the spicy psycho sauce. One thing that was interesting was being served a salad for breakfast. Although it looked fine, I could not make myself try it. Something is just plain wrong with salad for breakfast.

But I figured I better eat something too. I’m not a big breakfast eater, so I opted for a smoothie. Yogurt, banana, honey, and homemade granola. Just the right remedy for a tummyย a bit unsettled from traveling. ๐Ÿ™‚
