January 27th, 2013. Sunday Breakfast with Eunice
Breakfast food cravings are contagious!! Eunice woke up with a massive cravings for Ricky’s breakfast food and it didn’t take long at all for it to be transferred to me! Really no surprise though, since food is always on my mind and breakfast food is one of those sacred “I’m down for it anytime” kind of things.
Gone-ish are the days of Ricky’s being known as an eatery for seniors. They’ve spruced up the look and the menus even have a lot more interesting things! Stuff that you actually would want to eat!
The newly built Ricky’s on King Edward Street & Lougheed by the IKEA is shiny, modern, clean and BUSY! Eunice and I were seated right away but we could tell already that our server was a little swamped. We asked for coffees and dove into the menus.
Eunice was dead set on the Chorizo Brekkie Bowl – of course with extra hollandaise on the side 😉 I did get to try it and have to say.. I can see why she craves these! You really can’t go wrong with spicy salty chorizo, fluffy eggs and crisp & tender hash! The onions and peppers in the dish had a sweet almost caramelized quality to them.
I wanted the Famous Pancakes. 3 stack with eggs over medium and deliciously crispy bacon! Mmmmmm~~ the pancakes were super fluffy and the eggs were done to satisfaction. Simple, classic breakfast food. Can’t complain!
Sunday breakfast YUM!! Good call, sister, good call indeed 😉
(Also, I figured it was a fancy scarf day because you can never be too fabulous first thing in the morning!)
