We had some Pho last night while my cold still lingered, and it felt really good to be eating clean for a change (no spices or curries of any kind). Although the soup was slightly cold, it was actually pretty tasty for being delivery (Hung Viet)
We stayed in and I called it an early night after dinner because I knew we had a long day ahead of us the next day. The initial plan was to do a house viewing at 10a.m. near Essex road so T and I went to The Diner, an American style diner close to the property. I was PUMPED when I saw the menu. I've had a weird hankering for American foods lately and when I saw the following on the menu, I literally squealed!
- cobb salad
- hot dogs
- chili cheese fries (weird I know!!)
- philly cheese steaks
- bacon (I was hoping it was real American bacon!!!)
- ketchup EVERYWHERE! Lol.
The food looked promising but unfortunately, failed to deliver on taste for the most part. T's pancakes weren't very fluffy or moist at all, the way pancakes should be. What can you really expect though; it's a greasy diner, not a gourmet restaurant!
Their spicy home fries was fantastic; a bit oily but the caramelised onions were delicious mixed in with the potatoes.
After breakfast, the realtor cancelled on the property showing last minute (grrr!!), but on the plus side, we were able to head to the NFL Fan rally on time.
- I've been missing Chicago
- Missing football
- I wanted to see some Bears folk
- I haven't been out of the house in a week and 1/2 people!!
