This is an EatmeCalifornia first. B and I went back to a place we already reviewed to try out their breakfast. Many of the places we’ve been to have been places that do both breakfast and dinner, but because JD’s BBQ was good, and had a very old school, just like your grandparents used to make, kinda thing goin’ on we thought their breakfast would be something good to try. After all, how many other places do grits like they are supposed to be done?
JD’s BBQ – In Oxnard at Patterson and Wooley
JD’s only does breakfast on the weekends. So if you wanna try it out, don’t show up in the middle of the week or you’ll be waitin’ awhile. Check out our review of JD’s to get a feel for the place. I’m just going to go over our breakfast.
They have a very simple breakfast menu. There are waffles, a large country breakfast, the breakfast burrito and a few others. Brian went with the chicken and waffles, which for anyone who lives around Ventura, it gives us a chance to get chicken and waffles without having to drive so far south. I went with the big country breakfast because where I come from you go big or you go slightly smaller and then people make fun of you. “Look at the big guy with the cute little breakfast. He’s pretending he’s not huge”. Continue reading
I wrote not too long ago about how to tell if a sushi restaurant is in trouble. This article is a bit different because it is more about eating at joint that has just completely given up on life. I usually eat at a place and it doesn’t get posted for a day or two. I had to get this place up as soon as possible to save your stomachs, your taste buds, and your soul.
DW Café – Ventura at the intersection of Victoria and Moon
Yep you can get your bail bond while you eat.
From the outside this place looks like your typical country kitchen kind of place. In fact, I think a few years ago that’s what it was. Now it’s a café that’s open from early morning to mid afternoon. I was out and about on a few errands and thought I’d try it out for breakfast. Damn me and my curiosity. Continue reading
I went for breakfast, this morning, to a place a couple of neighbors had told me about. It’s a little, and I mean little, diner right off the 126 hwy called the 126 Café. They said it had a lot of history and had been around for something like 40 years and that they had one of the best breakfasts in town. Continue reading
For those of you who are just joining us, I have been on an Odyssey of sorts in the past week. I have gone off in search of a decent vegetarian omelette. This may not seem like something worth pursuing, but I would beg to differ. At a minimum, it has at least proven to be an entertaining search, with hair in one omelette (don’t click the link Michelle) and what could best be described as an egg frisbee for omelette #2.
Now that you’re all caught up on my omelette adventures, I can safely move on to my latest attempt. Special thanks are due to Amy, one of our great readers and the author of Parenting With Duct Tape, for suggesting this latest restaurant. I think we found a winner. Continue reading
Yesterday morning I decided to renew my search for the world’s first good vegetarian omelette. And what better place to go than a place that calls itself a house of omelettes, right? Wrong! In case you missed the first episode in my omelette saga, you can read about it here.
The first rule of being a good restaurant: If it’s in the name, it better be good.
How cheated would you feel if you went to IHOP and the pancakes sucked? Like I said, I went to Harold’s House of Omelettes in search of an OMELETTE. Here’s what I got instead… Continue reading
