Rich food abounds at the Fork & Spoon Cafe of New Braunfels. That's a slice of French toast coated with a Cream Anglaise Sauce. The sauce is made from heavy cream, egg yolks, and sugar. Oh, did I forget the vanilla extract.
The Fork & Spoon has seven omelets on the menu and this is one of three that I would love to eat. The others that I would like include a ham-sausage omelet and a bacon-jack-avocodo omelet. The one above is the Philly Steak Omelet. The other four omelets are more for the healthy eater.
Fork & Spoon is conveniently located on Exit 191 of I-35 in New Braunfels, TX. It is opened daily for breakfast and lunch, and serves the fancier side of breakfast. For more info, go to www.forkandspoonnb.com.
The Count of Monte Cristo would have loved this: A ham and gruyere sandwich prepared like French toast. It was sprinkled with powdered sugar which you can hardly see for the syrup I poured over it.
Green Chili and Sausage Grits:
For the grits lover, this is the supreme dish. To cooked grits, the F&S adds green chilies, their awesome sausage, and cheddar cheese. And if that's not enough this dish comes with country fried potatoes and toast. By the way, this is a bakery and they do make their own breads.
Philly Steak Omelet:
Okay, here it is: steak pieces with grilled mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers. To that they add provolone cheese. The final product is drizzled with a horseradish cream sauce.
This place is a bakery, so expect good breads here. Their French toast has been dipped in beaten eggs with amaretto added to the mix, and fried. Next the toast is loaded up with powdered sugar and served. The bowl of white Anglaise sauce is an option, which I, of course, opted. Below is what the toast looks like after the cream is added. A more gentile customer would have lightly dipped the toast into the sauce before eating. Not me.
You have to try their sausage. It's shape is irregular telling me the paddies are homemade. And you can really taste the pork in this sausage.
Ranch Hand Breakfast:
Guys, if your wife or girlfriend drags you in here, this is what you order: three eggs (not two), two meats (get their sausage), a biscuit with gravy (the pepper I added), and country-fried potatoes. The country-fried potatoes are pan fried with onions and bell peppers. The ham is a good as the bacon and sausage. I wish I could get all three on this plate.
