I ate this stuff.

Here is a post dedicated to some of the stuff I have eaten but never got around to posting. I don’t even remember when or where I ate some of this stuff, but I did my best to write down what I could. Hopefully it gets you all excited for lunch.

San Pedro is for breakfast

Whenever you look up restaurants in San Pedro, you’ll find one type of restaurant more than any other. Breakfast spots. For whatever reason, San Pedro is littered with them, along Gaffey, Pacific, and everywhere in between.

Michelle and I decided to check out Pacific Diner for the first time.

Diner truly is an appropriate description. When you enter the front there are a couple booths and a counter, but they have a nice outdoor patio too, where you can enjoy your food in the warm California weather.

I love their biscuits and gravy. I’d be a fat(ter) kid so fast if I had these available every day.

This is the machaca omelet. They brought out two types of fresh salsa to go with the omelet. The texture combination of the fried potatoes and the egg and meat is pretty darn good. The portions are big too, so you should have something to take home for a delicious snack.

They have a huge selection of omelets on their menu in addition to a long list of specials that changes on their white board. It’s definitely a place to check out. Perhaps we can go together sometime after you’ve spent the night on my couch from drinking too much.

Omelette & Waffle Shop

Michelle said she wanted breakfast one morning, so we looked through a few local options and settled on Omelette & Waffle Shop on Gaffey. This is a pretty popular breakfast diner that serves a wide assortment of waffles, pancakes, omelettes, and various other delicious breakfast concoctions.

Banana Nut Waffles. These are the American kinda, not the Belgian style pancakes that you’re used to seeing at all the fancy brunch places. It is a nice change, because it allows the nuts to be cooked into the batter, a nice texture contrast.

Sausage, potatoes, and eggs. Compliment the sweet with a little bit of salty.

King’s Hawaiian French Toast.

Omelette & Waffle Shop is pretty busy, but they serve at a pretty fast pace. Don’t be turned away by the line. It’ll move quickly. I definitely need to head back here at some point, because we saw some great looking omelettes and a giant, wet burrito that comes with chorizo. I can’t wait to try some other things here.

Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!

This weekend I went to check out the brew supply store in Old Town Torrance to see what my new local brew store was like. After looking around and realizing it will work out nicely, we decided to grab some lunch in the area. We found a gem of a place.

Rudy’s is only opened during breakfast and lunch hours.

They’ve got some great specials that change.

This is what I call a breakfast. All their portions are very generous.

Chorizo and cheese, topped with avocado.

Carne asada and over easy eggs, served with home style potatoes.

There are lots more items on the menu that I have on my radar. This is definitely a spot I want to come back to, and I will do just that, probably after a long night of drinking.

Breakfast is served.

I had ingredients. I felt like cooking breakfast, and so I did. I wasn’t sure what to call this thing. I guess it’s almost a frittata, but I didn’t flip it in the pan to finish it. We will just call it delicious. Eggs, cheese, onions, peppers, and sausage that was kept overnight in beer with a mixture of onions and garlic.

Things I have eaten recently.

Yes, I love to take photos of food. I love the angry comments about how lunch is still hours away and my blog has made them hungry. Here we go again.

My $3.00 breakfast at Tokyo 7-7 the morning after my birthday.

Homemade corned beef hash at S & W Country Diner. Really good.

Chicken melt, also at S & W.

Fresh shrimp platter made for a Fathers’ Day BBQ at Michelle’s parent’s place.

Fine, I’ll just get a cheeseburger.

We’ve all had that one time where we have raced to McDonald’s only to find out breakfast is no longer being served. It’s one of the worst feelings in the world. It’s a rejection almost on par with getting dumped. Every time I wake up early I feel like I have to go to McDonald’s and get breakfast. It’s not that I even want a Sausage McMuffin and hash browns. I just want to feel vindicated after all those rejections in the past.

Maybe I should stick to Jack in the Box, breakfast twenty four hours a day.
