So I just smoked a pack of cigarettes. Actually no, I’m a non-smoker. But I just might as well right, according to a study published several years ago when everyone was demonizing eggs. I’m not going to go into details of all the flaws in the study; I will just say that fortunately (or unfortunately) everyone’s jumped off that bandwagon to join the anti-gluton/carb one. I can now enjoy my omelette at Paul’s Omelettery without getting judged by some health nut (okay, I’m just exaggerating; I’m sure that the majority of people don’t judge others regardless of their own personal choices). Anyways, back to my visit to Paul’s Omelettery. I had their breakfast special, which consisted of a Soup & Sandwich and their Edison Omelette, which is served with buttered toast (good thing that most of us are off the fat bandwagon too).
Soup & Sandwich Special ($12.75):
This consisted of a monte cristo sandwich and a cup of tomato bisque. The monte cristo contained ham, bacon and cheddar cheese. It was flavourful, although I did find the bread to be a bit soggy. I’m generally not a fan of tomato soup, but I have to say, I really enjoyed theirs. The soup was very creamy and rich, with a nice tang.
The Edison ($13.25):
The omelette contained turkey, bacon, corn, mushroom, onion, edam, cheddar & cream cheese, and is served with two slices of buttered toast. There was a good amount of filling wrapped inside the omelette, in particular cheese. I did find it to be just a tad underseasoned however. I quite enjoyed their toast, which had a generous amount of butter.
I quite enjoyed my visit to Paul’s Omelettery; the food was quite tasty and now that eggs are now fine, I can eat without the fear of getting my arteries clogged, right? Their prices are also fairly reasonable. I was a bit disappointed by the service however: the staff I had weren’t particularly welcoming or attentive, and while I did receive all of my food without any hitch, I did see the table beside me having their orders being messed up. Nonetheless, I did quite enjoy my visit, and I’d recommend checking the place out (just do it quick before people begin jumping on the egg = evil bandwagon again).
