Broken yolk Extreme Omelet

Has anyone on here ever tried to eat the Championship omelet at The Broken Yolk Cafe in P.B.? It is a huge 15 egg omelet with cheese, home fries, 2 biscuits and chili with muchrooms and onions. It is enormous. Comes on a pizza platter? I tried this a few months ago and was just talking about it with friends. You have 1 hour to eat it all. I didnt even get through half of it, let alone the home fries.

Lemme know if you have had any luck with this Man Vs. Food style challenge let alone passed it.

Cavaillon Restaurant San Diego

Just had a chance to eat at Cavaillon again for the first time in a few months and it was great again. They have a tasting menu on Monday nights for 32 dollars that is 3 courses that includes dessert as well. I had the Scallop Risotto with Shitaake Mushrooms and the Salad with Bacon and these little chickpea polenta cakes. They put them in the salad with a fried egg. It was amazing the different temperatures and flavors with the salad.

They also offered a cheese for dessert instead of sweet. I'm not always interested in sweet for the final part of my meal so the cheese was great. It was a Spanish Manchego and came with some bread and a raspberry compote.

The place was not very full but the chef came out to say Hello and asked how everything was. The service was not intrusive and complemented the meal. The coffee was kinda small was my only gripe, but for the price I can't complain too much.

I would recommend them for sure.

Addison Restaurant in San Diego

If there was ever a restaurant that would finally offer a safe haven to Foodies and Wine lovers in San diego and Del Mar area and do it with style it would be Addison. I dined there just this last weekend for a friend's birthday.

To be honest I was not quite sure how it would turn out and I had the price tag in mind. But by the time all was said and done they gave us about 4 free "courses" and i made sure that we weren't being treated differently. Everyone gets these. The best one was the Gougere filled with Mascarpone cheese. My girlfriend loved the free "pre-dessert." I have never heard of a pre dessert before and now I kinda want to expect one at every fine dining place I go to. It was great.

I ordered the mussels, the foie gras and the lamb and my girlfriend had the Wild Leek Soup and the Sablefish and the Duck. Everything was perfectly done and it tasted like the leeks were just picked that day. The server said that they get the leeks from just a few miles away from someone's personal farm. How cool is that. I mean home grown!!

Nice thing is that we left full and we werent the youngest people in the place. I am 27 and my girlfriend is 24 and there were people our age dining as well. I figured with such a nice dining room it might be stuffy and for older people but their music was fresh and new, their staff was amazing and we generally had a great time.

I would whole heartedly recommend Addisons to anyone who wanted to have an amazing dinner and get a lot of bang for your buck. They arent cheap, but you could easily spend the same amount as we did and somewhere like Mille Fleurs or Mister A's and not even come close to what they did for us. It was like an epiphone. Totally awesome. Loved it.
