It was my birthday last Sunday! And what better way to celebrate my birthday than eating bacon?
My sister decided to treat me and my other siblings to lunch at Early Bird Breakfast Club in BGC. It’s an all-day breakfast place–meaning you can have, as their tagline goes, “Beautiful breakfast. Morning. Noon. Night.” Ron Swanson will surely beam with pride, because all-day breakfast places are sweeping through the metro. I think it was earlier this year, if my memory serves me right, when my sister came home raving about their famous yin and yang champorado (half dark chocolate, half white chocolate). Right then and there I knew I had to visit this place. We had a heavy breakfast that day so we decided to lunch there at 2 in the afternoon.
Fans of pastel and line art will definitely love the interior of the restaurant. One wall features line art of birds and flowers against a blue background while mirrors are hung on the wall across it (sayang, I didn’t ask who the artist was). The place is pretty small, but the loft accommodates more customers.
The menu is printed on newsprint. I initially settled on ordering their new offering that has salmon in it, but then I remembered my true quest that day–bacon. I ordered the Bacon & Egg Nest, my sister the Tenderloin Tapa, brother # 2 the Full English, and brother #3 the Adobo Sunrise, plus orders of Bacon Twists, Yin and Yang Champorado, and these chunks of potatoes that came in a glass (in case you’re wondering, brother #1 is outside Manila with my mom and my aunt for a town fiesta).
We had to wait for more than 20 minutes for our order because, as the menu states, “[they] consider [their] food as an art and masterpiece.” And masterpieces they were.
