I haven’t been posting much about Honey’s lately.  We still go frequently, but I’ve been sticking with the standards, as I’ve eaten through most of the menu.  Or at least the parts of the menu that sound good to me.  However this morning I noticed something that I hadn’t noticed before: eggs and pastrami.  So I decided to give it a try.

It was basically 3 scrambled eggs with pastrami, not a fancy omelet.  Which was fine by me.  Along with a latke, this made a deliciously greasy and filling meal.  I love any kind of Jewish deli meats and sandwiches, and this was like a breakfast version.  The price, 7.50, was a bit high, otherwise this would enter into my normal rotation.

And in case you’re wondering, Jane always gets a pancake, and Madeline always gets grits.  And both require heaps of butter.


9/27/09 – Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs.  You know, ever since becoming a meat eater, I’ve encountered some meats that I actually prefer the veggie version better.  I think this might be one of them.  Really good, don’t get me wrong.  But there isn’t really a need for the huge slab of beef, when it’s really the batter and gravy that I want to be eating.  The meat just fills me up.  How about chicken fried eggs with gravy?  Mmm, white gravy…

8/7/09 – Biscuits and gravy.  Sure, its kinda strange that the sausage is a single patty, instead of crumbled up in the gravy.  But who am I to complain?  This is the sort of breakfast that I’ve been missing out on for 12 years.  I am in love with meat and white gravy atop starchy baked goods.

7/31/09 – Chipped Beef on Toast.  I almost forgot to post this one.  Honey’s version is much meatier and drier than mom’s, my childhood favorite.  But the 1/2 size is more than enough.  I don’t know how I ever ate so much of this as a kid.

7/26/09 – Whitefish Platter.  This is an unusual choice for me.  But I had too much greasy meaty late night food the night before, so I went with something lighter than usual.  And you know what, olives for breakfast are amazing!

I was going to write a review of Honey’s Sit and Eat.  But duh!  Who doesn’t know how great this place is?  So instead I’ll begin a weekly update of what I eat there.  Like you all really care!

7/22/09: Enfrijoladas.  These are better than any Heuvos Rancheros, anywhere.  Seriously.  Spicy, beany, eggy, but somehow light and summery.  Not at all a dense stomach bomb like some mexican-y breakfast dishes can be.
