SF Day of Gluttony Challenge: Breakfast (Part 1)

Posted in: EAT, On the Spot, USA

By Harry Team OH started our “Day of Gluttony Challenge” (DOG) at 6:30 am.  Unlike Bruce, I ate at around 9pm the night before.  Let’s just say I was a bit cocky about my eating abilities.  First stop, Matching Half, for an espresso.  Jason, the owner of Matching Half pulled our first espresso to kick off the DOG.  Following Matching Half was Plow.  Tucked away in Potrero Hill, it’s quite possibly my new favorite breakfast spot in the city.  Not thinking twice, we ordered the Chinese Breakfast.  Third on the list was the SF classic, Brenda’s.  To our demise, we ordered Shrimp and Grits.  As delicious as this breakfast was, it was a terrible decision to start off our DOG with eating two of the biggest breakfast dishes in SF.  So, when we hit Broulett’s Larder we decided to take it easy, and go with the yogurt and quinoa granola. Making sure we were still caffeinated, we got Gibraltars at Blue Bottle Ferry.  Gibraltars are Blue Bottle‘s signature drink.  For my coffee enthusiasts, it would be the equivalent to a Cortado (Spain) or Flat White (Australia).  Our final breakfast item was my favorite spring roll in town – at Out the Door, Slanted Door’s take out kiosk.  Full from our first six locations, we began to doubt that we could complete the challenge.  But we still pushed on.  Next stop – lunch at American Grilled Cheese Buy the music on Mandeon‘s Sound Cloud.
