To kick things off, J, M and I went out for breakfast at Pillar of Salt in Richmond.
I love corn fritters.
The best corn fritters I've tried to date, was at Mister Close. That was, until I discovered Pillar of Salt's corn fritters. Corn-fritter-heaven.
It was slightly crisp on the outside, but incredibly moist on the inside. And when you eat it, it just kind of melts in your mouth. Yeah, my description could use a little tweaking, but you just have to try it to fully understand what I am going on about.
Lastly, we also tried the green eggs and ham.
I have never seen a hollandaise sauce of this colour. So you can probably understand my confusion. The green eggs and ham is similar to any other poached eggs with bacon, brioche and hollandaise. However, they tweaked the sauce a little. It is actually a "herby apple cider hollandaise". And instead of the bacon, they served smoked ham with it.
Eggs were perfectly poached once again. And I like the matchsticks of granny smith apples they served with the dish as it cuts through the richness of the sauce.
