Two weeks ago, hubby and i were ecstatic that the day had finally arrived…Wildflour started serving Sunday breakfast
i think every pinoy feels like a champion today after manny proved himself truly as the greatest fighter ever! yay!!!
we got up early this morning and headed for rockwell. no, not to watch the fight in the cinema, as we were confident manny would clobber hatton, but to get a taste of myron’s brunch. sort of a pre celebration of pacquiao’s victory! woohoo!
i read about myron’s brunch from one of my favorite food blog dessert comes first. after her review, brunch at myrons greenbelt became a regular and i was planning to take a trip to get a taste of the new hype until i learned that myron’s at rockwell would serve the now famous brunch. i was thrilled and placed our reservation. when asked if we had any seating preference, i said “anywhere with good lighting” *wink*
while waiting for our orders, lovely couple Drs EAC & DC walked in the restaurant and we happily greeted dra a wonderful birthday! they came to celebrate dra’s bday by having a delicious hearty breakfast, and knowing that this couple eat at good restaurants all the time, i knew hubby and i were at the right place!
hubby ordered the big pinoy breakfast.
we thought this was a good idea so that we could sample which among the pinoy choices of myron’s brunch would become our favorite.
it had angus beef tapa, chicken tocino, lamb and chicken adobo and daing na bangus with fried rice and 2 eggs (yuuum!!!)
my favorite was the the lamb adobo and the angus beef tapa. the chicken tocino was good too and the daing na bangus had a unique marinade…ok it was all good! *giggle* hubby loved the angus beef tapa and daing na bangus. the dish was so large that hubby left more than bite size pieces of each as he could not stuff anymore down his tummy!!! talk about an order thats well worth it!
as for my dish, even before i placed our reservation, i had made up my mind on what to order. eggs benedict of course! but upon reviewing myron’s brunch menu i saw several versions. traditional, southern, irish… i just had to ask what the differences were.
i knew the traditional version had ham and runny eggs on english muffin with the magic hollandaise sauce but this morning i learned that the irish version had corned beef hash, the southern version had susage and, well, there were i think, 2 other versions but my imagination was already fired up with the thought of sausage, and runny eggs!
so southern eggs benedict it was, and i was not disappointed…
the egg yolks looked so full
and the pretty salad with roasted tomatoes (a favorite) looked yum!
i could not wait to puncture the poached egg.
watch the yolk as it runs down to bathe the sausage and the english muffin
it was so delicious! the sausage had that spicy touch to it which was balanced by the poached egg and hollandaise sauce. yuuuummmmyyy!
this dish is going to top my list for a long time…hmmm, just thinking about it makes me want to make another reservation!!!
after savoring our brunch, and my 3rd cup of drip coffee
we were ready to ask for our bill. hubby and i both agreed that this was such a satisfying breakfast, a wonderful way to start our day.
our waiter came back, without our bill and told us that our breakfast would be taken cared of by the other table. surprised, i beamed at hubby. wow this was turning out to be a wonderful day indeed!
Thank you to our generous benefactor!
you made our day!!!
just another reason to celebrate!
i just love breakfast!
it must be because our mom never let us out of the house when we were small unless we ate our breakfast. now, hubby’s home is not fond of morning meals as everyone just seem to rush out in the morning. so when we got married, it was a tug of war whether to eat before leaving or not. but because hubby is mr grumpy early on in the day, weekdays are packed breakfast but weekends are according to my preference.
early morning meals are never complete without eggs
sausages and hash browns are great with my favorite condiments of ketchup and mustard
and of course my favorite cup of coffee or hot chocolate
i do love breakfast! there’s nothing better than a good meal to start your day!
what’s your favorite meal of the day?!
A famous sociopolitical author once said, “All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”
The Holy week has been fruitful for me
i have learned how to slow down, to stop and smell the flowers as others may say, and how important it is to do so in life
and now, im just about raring to go!
we began our day by hearing mass with an excellent homily by Father Concepcion and then, excited after 3 days of abstinence from meat, we headed for M Cafe.
i have heard a lot of good reviews about this place, more so after winning the best brunch category in the Gold Spot and so, without batting an eyelash, i reserved a table a week before easter just to make sure we would be seated.
this proved to be a good idea as majority of the tables were reserved when we got there.
i started my breakfast with yogurt, cheese and bread and then had a tomato, mushroom and cheese omelet made by the chef to pair with sausages.
the omelet was cooked very well! it was fluffy and still moist in the middle and the added mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese complemented each other!
when that was gobbled up, i headed to the spanish cold cut plates for a refill. there were also grilled vegetables beside the platters that looked wonderful!
i cannot name all the slices i got but they were all delicious!
the japanese table was next on my agenda
although i was disappointed that they did not have salmon sashimi, the maguro made up for it! it was so fresh, and the slices thick enough for that melt in your mouth sensation! yum!
oysters are always on our radar when eating at buffets and fortunately, majority of them offer this.
the oyster platter at the M Cafe brunch buffet empties out fast. luckily, we were near the kitchen door so when a waiter came out with a tray, we were right behind him to get the most succulent of the batch! hahaha!
after our fill of our favorite mollusks, we headed to the chinese tables. there were crab cakes, calamari, vegetable tempura, crab cakes (ok i said that already!), shrimp hakao, soimai, sharks fin, and chicken shiitake.
i had just gotten small pieces of each, as at this time, my jeans button was already screaming murder! hehehe!
there were more to taste: waffles, pasta, rib eye, baked salmon, filipino breakfast items like fried rice, tapa, and other chafing dishes i didnt dare to open anymore, less i had to be carried out of the restaurant from sheer fullness!
but i could not leave without dessert and this light taho seemed perfect for the already stuffed. hubby sampled their cakes and was satisfied…next time ill leave more room!
our scrumptious brunch culminated with a perfect cup of illy coffee
and as the easter bunny looked on, we sat and savored the pleasant ambiance, the courteous and efficient staff and delectable dishes we sampled.
and i thought, if all happiness really depends on a leisurely breakfast, then i must say, we are set for life!
