Recently, I had the unfortunate pleasure of waking up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday to go to the DMV and renew my driver’s license. But, since every cloud has a silver lining, it meant that I got to beat everyone to the punch on brunch! So I ventured over to one of the newest locations of famed Philly breakfast spot, Green Eggs Cafe, on 13th and Locust. Their menu is pretty extensive, and they serve up specialties like Red Velvet pancakes and a little dish called the “Kitchen Sink”, which has all your breakfast favs in a cast-iron skillet. There’s also a rotating menu of daily specials. They had vegetarian breakfast tacos on the menu the day I went. I wasn’t keen on eating tofu before 9 AM, so I decided to go with the Breakfast Burrito (Admittedly, I was swayed by the non-vegan, house-made chorizo).
And then, this bad boy was presented in front of me:
Holy Guacamole, that thing was huge! Stuffed with eggs, corn, house made pork chorizo, potatoes, peppers, onions and tex mex cheese, topped with pico de gallo, sour cream and an avocado, and drizzled with a fire roasted red pepper black bean sauce, this breakfast burrito was not for the faint of heart. I only managed to eat 3/4 of it before I finally threw in the towel. But it was soooooo good! The black bean sauce was the perfect compliment to a fork full of eggs and chorizo, once I figured out how to properly dissect this beast, that is.
Look at the little bit of light from outside, shining on its delicious magnificence!
So, if you’re looking for a breakfast dish to satisfy your most intense burrito cravings and your wildest hungover hunger pains, Green Eggs is definitely the place to come. (And don’t forget to hit up the ATM first; it’s cash only!)
