I was in Pittsburgh visiting some relatives, and I had one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. It was at Pamela's P & G Diner in Millvale. Eating their breakfast made me feel proud to be an American.
These home fries were the best I've ever had. #1. I don't know how they do it. So tasty. And not dry. A lot of home fries are dried out. Not these. They have a lot of onions in them too. Onions is one of the most important ingredients in every food, except for ice cream & some other stuff. Garlic is just about as important. Almost every great dish has either onions or garlic, or both in them. Notice how I put my potatoes over my eggs. I used the heat from the potatoes to cook my eggs a little more. These are tricks you learn over the years.
Check out the corned beef hash too. That was hands down the best corned beef hash I've ever had. I think they must've gotten the corned beef fresh from a butcher. Most restaurants make their corned beef hash browns with canned corned beef. Not Pamela's. They don't play around.
Now to the pancakes. Amazing. Definitely in the top 2 best pancakes I've ever had. Not sure if it's #1 or not. And I can't tell you where my other favorite pancake place is. Sorry, I have to keep some things
private. These pancakes are described as "crepe-like" from the critics. But I've never had a crepe, so I can't vouch for that comment. But I can tell you that they're thinner than your normal pancake. And they're not dry. A lot of pancakes at restaurants are too dry. Dry & breakfast just don't go together. Even toast shouldn't be dry. It shouldn't be wet either, but it definitely shouldn't be too dry. And the other thing that makes these pancakes amazing is that on the edges it's even thinner & it gets crispy. So the pancake is crispy along the edges and soft and chewy everywhere else. They're so good you can eat them without syrup or butter.
My Mom makes great pancakes by the way. But I'm only discussing restaurant breakfasts right now. This breakfast was so good, it made me forget about Bon Jovi being Russian. Thanks to everyone who wrote. And yes, maybe Spiderman is Russian too. But I'm past that now. This All American breakfast has cured me. I'm just glad Lutz wasn't with me. Because I think we definitely would've fought over some of the food.
If any of you know some great breakfast places. Let me know. I love food. And I'll check it out. No matter where it is. But it better be great.
