Just recently opened along Maginhawa Street in Quezon City is The Breakfast Table. Featuring a very nice take on Shabby Chic interior design, its an excellent place to have… what else – BREAKFAST!
Loved the quirky touches that help give character to a place: the shovels converted into wall lamps…. or the denim pants looking placemats.
We tried 3 of their breakfast items: Sardine Omurice (P165). 2 eggs, Spanish sardines, mildly spicy sardine rice, fresh tomatoes and bell peppers and a petite salad. This is the first time I’ve tried Omurice. Basically the rice comes wrapped in an omelet. Overall I found it a nice, flavorful, and filling dish. But truthfully, I’ve never been a fan of sardines.
This is the Adobo Omurice (P175). 2 eggs, toasted adobo chunks, adobo rice and a petite salad. Great flavor. I would have preferred it to have larger Adobo chunks but didn’t find any. Hmmmm. Maybe my daughter got to it before I did…….
This is the Breakfast Burger (P195). Longanisa and beef patty, fried egg, dressing, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, pandesal bun. Before the burger got to our table, I was already imagining how the blend of the smoky, garlicky longanisa would work with beef in a burger. So much so that I had a specific expectation. After biting into it, I found the burger wasn’t as longanisa tasting as I’d imagine it would be. It tasted good but seemed to lack ooomph…
Overall, I found The Breakfast Table a great place to have a nice, leisurely and quiet breakfast. At the time of our visit they were still on a dry-run of sorts so it should be pretty well sorted out by now. Go and try it!
