A Seemingly Normal Omelette. That Is, Until You Stab It!
After a pretty good experience with the Macaroni and Cheese Burger (fried desserts too!) at the Wine and Diner on Deleware Ave. (Albany), I decided to give their breakfast a whirl. So I stuffed the somewhat reluctant Mrs. Dave (she likes the Four Corners on Sundays) into the car along with the somewhat less reluctant Giblet and headed over.
There were several interesting breakfast options, but alas my lust for runny yolks made me fixate on one particular menu item. The egg dish of my desire was the "Sunny Side Omelet" which is pictured above in its unadulterated form. Pretty normal looking, workaday omelet, eh? That's what you think! Stab that bad boy with a fork and look at what you get...
You get two good and runny yolks in the middle for toast dipping purposes. I haven't been pleasantly surprised by a breakfast dish in quite some time, so I was fairly tickled. I don't know if this is a Wine and Diner innovation, or if it has been done elsewhere, but I have never seen the concept before. I wholeheartedly approve.
My young one had a short stack of M&M and bacon pancakes.
Giblet wasn't very hungry for brunch, so she only took a few hearty bites. Her loss, I devoured the leftovers. Even though everyone seems to be over the bacon thing, I found these to be well done. Just enough bacon and just enough chocolate. I would order them again.
Anyhow, even Mrs. Dave grudgingly agreed that the breakfast was good. She even said that her bacon and tomato omelet was a little better then the ones at the Four Corners. We will probably go back.
