I had a late Friday night and got out of bed at 1:30PM. I had planned to do some errands at Surrey Place. I wanted to look at picking up Nikon micro (macro) lens and test it out right away. I’m really glad there’s a Broadway Camera so close to me now. I picked up the Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro-Nikkor and went straight to the closest place to eat, which was Ricky’s All Day Grill. I was also craving eggs and breakfast food too, so it was convenient. By now it was about 5:30PM lol..
My friend and I started with spinach artichoke dip. For some reason it was really, really good – maybe because we were so hungry. They heated the chips, they had a oily sheen to it – were they freshly fried? Probably not, but they were nice and crisp. The spinach and artichoke dip was really cheesy and creamy with spinach and artichoke bits here and there.
I ordered the Yukon Big Bite which consists of 3 eggs, 3 strips of maple bacon, ham, and your choice of bavarian, chorizo or calabrese sausage served with savoury potato wedges. I chose scrambled eggs with calabrese sausage and sourdough bread. The maple bacon was nice and crisp with a bit of sweetness from the maple, and the ham was cut 1/4 inch thick. The main thing is probably the sausage though. The calabrese was stuffed with mozzarella chunks here and there. They cut it in half, so lots of the mozzarella had leaked out though. I liked the sausage and the bacon the most. I’m not a big ham lover. The potatoes weren’t wedges, but cubes. My first few pieces seemed like the potatoes were recooked, and not very fresh. Wasn’t very crispy, and just had that texture like it had been cooked before and reheated. I also liked how buttery my sourdough bread was.
My friend ordered the Chorizo Brekkie-Bowl which has seasoned chunky potatoes, with red onions, topped with 3 scrambled eggs, 3 cheeses, diced tomatoes and green onions, covered in ranchero hollandaise. My friend’s bowl was just OK. The chorizo was a bit spicy, but overall the entire thing was too salty. The servers were friendly, and I wouldn’t mind going here on occasion if I was craving breakfast food mid day. It’s usually not that busy and close by.
