Keep OT there boys, or i will have to start calling you bad names.

no one is casting aspersions on anything but facon and thai chicken skin sausages on this thread.

i think the ersatz coffee has already been dealt with elsewhere.

i am curious if anyone is fond of bobor and the like?

Try the Rising Sun, 50 meters off Riverside at st. 178.
Don't- it's shit.

Rory's Irish Pub does a decent full English.
Don't know if the American owner has changed the menu, but when Ruairi was the boss it was an Irish Breakfast they served. :hattip:

Same fucking country (British Isles) bar the shouting.....

Well it's got some chopped up green pepper to give it that emerald Isle effect, but there are plenty of potatoes, so can't be all that authentic

I want Richard to come run and IHOP Clone

waffles with streaky bacon baked right in.

there is a strong regional/national preference as to what is a "good" breakfast.

blood pudding can be pretty good- French boudin from Louisana too.

Fuck yeah!

I've found a place near TK selling 500ml real Guinness cans for $3.70. Anywhere else cheaper than that by case?

the I in IHOP is a good descriptor because you could easily offer 10 national breakfast varieties.
interesting the british and mexican breakfasts seem the most popular here- even among Americans.

i reckon the way to go would be to lease the kitchen in an undermanaged hotel on riverside at a low low price.

some of those places, despite having good location and size would consistently lose money.

while i am not sure how finacially successful Alan was at Green Vespa, it was undeniably very popular, kind of a hallmark for brekkie in PP at least among the lads.
