Roadtrip Review: Eddie's Place

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu is Eddie's Place in Charlotte, NC.

Eddie's Place was a quick pick. I needed a place close to our hotel. As far as the map was concerned it was just a few miles away, but there was construction on the main road so it took us 45 minutes to get there. Eddie's place is more a bar than restaurant but their menu looked good so we thought we were in for a treat.

Eddie’s place calls itself a New Orleans style restaurant. It serves a variety of traditional American dishes and southern dishes like Po-boys, gumbo, and shrimp and grits. I ordered an omelet with ham tomatoes, green peppers, mozzarella and mushrooms and a half order of the French Toast. The omelet was okay. It was decently cooked but it was a French fold over with toppings thrown in. It was cooked pretty well.

I think they put something in the Sweet Tea in Charlotte because it was delicious. I found that to be consistent across the board at multiple restaurants. It didn’t seem like the sweet tea in Cincy that is barely Tea and mostly syrup.

The French Toast was the reason to come to this place. It was amazing. It was made of Ciabatta bread with a soft creaminess. The batter had a great flavor with cinnamon goodness. It had the consistency of bread pudding without tasting like it was all bread pudding. I asked the waitress how they achieved such a divine feat of culinary delight. She dismissed my question and said, “They cook it on a stove top.” Our waitress wasn’t very personable. 

The hash browns and bacon were sub par. I didn't like it at all, and my wife said the bacon wasn't very good.If it wasn't for the French Toast I would have definitely rated this place much lower.Unfortunately my camera went down at the beginning of our stop here so I had to take these photos with my mobile phone. They were serviceable but not up to my personal standards.

Overall Experience:
Service:                  3
Ambiance:              2.5
Menu:                     3
Food taste/Quality: 3
Coffee:                    2 

I give the whole experience 3 out of 5 broken eggs:

The French Toast is the I recommend that you stop through for that. Everything else, from the hash browns to the bacon were mediocre, but the French Toast won the game.  on the strength of everything else though I would say you can pass on this one.

Recipe: Sweet Rice

Today's recipe was a family staple sweet rice,
Most people would call this rice pudding. Its about the same, but we tend to eat it warm, where others may eat it cold. We also consider it to be a useful addition to any meal, be it as a side dish or a breakfast. The recipe is pretty easy, so I suggest you try it for yourself.

Review: Lemon Ricotta Pancakes at Cheesecake Factory

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the French Toast Napoleon from the Cheesecake Factory

Today the wife and I decided to hit up the Cheesecake factory for brunch. We have eaten there once before for breakfast but that was so long ago that I did not have a clear memory of why we had never returned. A friend of ours really likes eating at the establishment and it had been forever since we ventured that way. The restaurant was of course packed to the gills but we discovered the secret of the bar area where, if you can grab a table, you can jump the line and get seated faster.

Sunday Brunch at Annabel's

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Annabelle’s Today the wife and I decided to try someplace close and new, mostly because we got a late start today. We ended up at a nice little place called Annabelle’s where the wait was long but service was wonderful and the food was delicious. Overall it set the standard for one of our best breakfast experiences so far.
