It’s been a while since my last update. I’ve got drafts piled up and finally have time to get to them.
I’ve been busy, but there should always be time for going to the spa with a girl friend. But even better is the lunch afterwards :P We were in Encinitas and decided to try out Honey’s Bistro, recommended by several people.
It was such a nice day and we got caught up in chatting that I forgot to take pictures of the interior and exterior… oops. At least I remember to take photos of the food.
Order at the counter, and find a seat. The menu was several pages long and a bit overwhelming – I really couldn’t make up my mind. In the end, both of us ordered from the Specials chalkboard menu.
Santa Fe Omelette: chicken sausage, tomatoes, green onions, Ortega chilis, avocado on top. Served with potato hash. $9.25
Not the best photos in the world, but we were hungry and just wanted to dig in. No time for multiple takes!
Both dishes were delicious – the omelette was soft and fluffy, and the ingredients were fresh. I don’t normally like chicken sausage but this was really juicy and flavorful. The lobster benedict eggs were poached perfectly. The lobster was a bit over-seasoned, but overall really good.
But the real highlight of the dishes was the amazing potato hash. The outside was browned to a crisp, tossed with green onions, and lightly salted. Simple, and really really tasty. It’s as good as the hash at The Mission, which is saying a lot because I loved it there.
Overall, I had a great time at Honey’s Bistro. It’s a perfect place for a casual lunch, and they also have a few seats outdoors for a nice day. And of course, the food is great. Can’t beat that now, can ya?
