Disclaimer: *This was a complimentary meal. This post was not edited or written for monetary compensation, and are solely my opinions and observations. The owner did know that I was there to dine as a blogger.
The restaurant and Zomato had generously offered a free entree, so I decided to check out the place. We went around 4:30pm on a Saturday, and there were 2 single men eating away. We sat in a booth that had torn areas, but for the most part, I thought the place was cleaner than I expected.
The place was quiet, without any of those annoying TV screen all around you, so that you could actually do some talking. There were some interesting decor on the wall.
Their menu consists of a wide selection of Western food, Chinese and Thai. It’s embarrassing to say as a food blogger, but I don’t think I’ve been to a restaurant that was so mixed like this one.
I love Egg Benedicts, so I had to try their Heights Benny $11.25 with two poached eggs, sliced ham, caramelized onions, saute mushrooms on English muffins covered in hollandaise sauce and a side of hash browns and salad. The hashbrowns were super crispy and hot! Mmm! Delicious. I think it’s the first Benny that had so much in it. It was really filling. The salad on the side was really nice and refreshing to counter balance the heavy benny’s.
I know some people don’t like runny yolks, but I love them! So this was perfect! It mixes with the sauce, and gives another option for flavour and texture for the hashbrowns, as opposed to eating them straight.
Sheepie had the Classic Burger $9.95 with a 5 oz sirloin beef patty along with large leafy greens, tomato, onions and pickles. Sheepie complimented that it had superior bun like in Germany (but that’s probably because they were Kaiser buns – which are originally from Austria). He said that the patty was really good, and that it was the best burger he’s had in a long time. The fries, like the hashbrowns were hot and crispy. Thumbs up.
The Thai owner was really friendly and I got to chat with his for a bit. Since the my benny was complimentary, the bill was much lower. Because of that, my % for the tip was lower than I expected when I punched into the debit machine. I got cash out for the tip, where he talked about how he was focused on serving good food, with good service, and wasn’t concerned about the tips. (I still gave him some).
It’s not in the area where I usually go to, but I wouldn’t mind returning again! I am already craving the runny yolks and the crispy hot hashbrowns/fries as I write this!
