You know that show on the Food Network: The Best Thing I Ever Ate? First my mouth waters, and then my travel list grows rapidly. I wouldn’t be able to be a guest on that show for many reasons, one being I am not a celebrity, but mostly because I find the act of narrowing down the best thing I ever ate to be a daunting task. How can I pick just one thing?!
But then I remembered the best breakfast I ever ate. Long ago, (maybe 2005?), I stumbled upon Peso’s Restaurant on lower Queen Anne in Seattle while on a girls weekend.
Many of the menu items appealed to me, but one really stuck out: the Roma and Avocado Eggs Benedict with Chipotle Hollandaise.
Peso’s knows how to correctly poach an egg, (I do not), and the perfect amount of yolk oozes out to mix with the insanely delicious chipotle hollandaise sauce. I’m a bit intimidated to recreate this meal at home.
So whenever I am in Seattle, even if I am just passing through, stopping at Peso’s for breakfast is a non-negotiable. And I always get the same thing, even though I’ve snagged bites from others and they’ve been quite tasty. And while I’ve always dined on the weekend, this time I went in for a weekday meal and discovered they have a happy hour brunch from 9-11 a.m. Monday-Friday where almost everything is $6.50. #winning!
The decor is also quite lovely, which makes eating their delicious food even more special. Promise me the next time you’re in Seattle you’ll swing by and enjoy the Roma and Avocado Benedict for me.
