So I just discovered that we’re completely behind on all of our posts! One of the best things about Yow Yow! though is that there’s always something to write about. I never usually find that I run out of material, but I did notice that I did my last “Bay Area Eats” post back in March and I’ve definitely eaten a lot more since then so let’s play catch up!
Mandi and I had one of our girly brunch dates at Straw in Hayes Valley months ago! Now, this is a pretty unique restaurant because they put a fun spin on your favorite items with a carnival type twist. No, your mind isn’t playing tricks on you. I really did order an egg sandwich in between two donuts. When Mom saw this photo she immediately thought that I was begging for a heart attack. For their dinner menu, Straw also makes a similar version with a cheeseburger in between two donuts! I was really hoping to like this because I love egg sandwiches and I love donuts independently. Together, however, was another story. It really just felt like I was eating surgary eggs and cheese combined with an already pretty sweet bacon. It ended up being a bit too much for me and on top of that – really messy to eat! I must’ve used up two of my napkins before I decided to give up – take it apart – and just eat the eggs. Has anyone ever tried this at Straw or a similar brunch meal? I’d love to know what you think!
