The Breakfast Search, part 2

This weekend, we tried the Little Creek Diner.  It has been reviewed online before, so I don’t know that this adds much to what is already out there.  The outside always put me off, but the inside was considerably nicer.  It felt like a little family restaurant.  I liked the mural on the wall and the people were friendly.  Most were regulars.

That said, Ric ordered eggs scrambled with cheese, toast, and sausage patties.   The dish came with home fries.

Little Creek Diner Breakfast

I opted for Voula’s Omelet, which was listed as containing “feta and FF.”  I wasn’t sure what FF was.  Yes, I know I could have asked, but I like trying new things!  It came with toast and I opted for grits instead of home fries.

I was very surprised when “FF” turned out not to be fresh fruit but FRENCH FRIES.  There were French fries in the omelet.  With eggs and feta. Let me be clear: I am not a huge fan of French fries.  I don’t usually eat a medium order of McDonald’s fries.  IN my eggs?  I was not thrilled.   However, I do love Spanish tortillas.  So it’s not like the idea of potatoes in my eggs scares me, but French fries?  I tried it anyway.  I did not love the combination.  The bites of egg with feta were very enjoyable.  Bites with egg, feta, and fry were pretty okay.  Bites with just egg and fry–that I did not like.  I can’t tell you if it’s good or bad–it just wasn’t a food that I would order again based on my preferences.  My toast was okay, but a bit soggy (butter does that pretty quickly.  The unbuttered side was not soggy).  The grits were cooked great!

Overall impression: this wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. Part of that was my food choice. Was I upset? NO!  That’s part of being willing to try stuff: there’s always a risk I won’t like it, even if it’s cooked marvelously.  Shhh-we won’t talk about Brussels sprouts.  That is not the fault of the cook or the server and it is not the responsibility of the restaurant: I chose it, and I ate it!   I am totally willing to come back and try again with something different.  I’d also love to try their gyros for lunch some time!
