Meal in the City / Quick Photo Post 1: Three Meals

A recent return to Cara Mia for breakfast yields these two dishes: top, sausages given quick run through the oven and then served with bread, scrambled eggs, half a roasted tomato, and a hash brown. That was my breakfast.

The BF was supposed to have ordered an omelet with smoked salmon and vegetables, but his eggs arrived folded around just the veg. Kind of a disappointment. The eggs were cooked very nicely, though.

My very first pork katsu sandwich, from Metro, the upscale version of popular Japanese-Filipino fast-food chain Tokyo Tokyo. Whole-wheat the bread may be, but it was toasted to a beautiful golden-brown crust, the perfect contrast to the tender, soft crumb and to the deep-fried pork cutlet. Mmmm. Those billowing white things are actually potatoes in tempura batter, fried and then sprinkled with sour cream and onion seasoning.
