CRISP on the 28th
I love breakfast food so wonder not that all-day breakfast places score high in my list. So we trooped to Crisp in, where else but on the 28th (between 8th and 9th avenues) Street in BGC to indulge and start our day right.
It's been a while and I'm having trouble recalling exactly what we ordered. Let's see. There's Benny's and Greens, Adobo Flakes, Big Breakfast -- all yummy. Can't complain. For sure, they do their eggs well, sous vide eggs or not.
I always score restos by the quality of coffee they serve. I never fail to have coffee wherever, and whenever, so at least that's common in all dining places I've tried. That's important for me. I'm sure it's good coffee, much like how they do their coffee in Hatch 22 (what's with the numbers, Erwin H?). But I'm not so happy with the fellow who served us. He tried to be friendly, accommodating and attentive, but you never leave freshly-brewed coffee in the counter, waiting to be served. Since it took awhile, I was so eager for my cuppa that my eyes were set on the coffee machine. This fellow was chatting the seconds away that I needed to stand up to fetch my morning brew. Worse, he took forever to fetch the sugar and creamer!
Do you see the plate above with those 2 fluffy eggs and a pair of sausages, some salad and potato cubes on the side? Fork and knife ready, that plate was snatched away from our table before the silvers landed. Turned out it wasn't what we ordered. Without much ado, he snatched and served that same plate at the next table. Our jaws dropped, not knowing what to say! Good thing we took time to snap a photo or that pair of sausages would have gone solo. Oh well, at least that surprise maneuver perked us all up, bursting in laughter. Still a good start, despite the coffee and the switch.
