I’m not really a morning person. I usually stay up late with total disregard to what I’ll feel like in the morning. I guess you can call me a night owl. Though as I’m getting older these late nights are taking a toll on me the next day, so I am starting to limit the number of nights I go to sleep late. Besides feeling all grumpy in the morning, another symptom of staying up late is that I can’t eat breakfast. Most mornings I just eat a piece of toast (with Philadelphia cream cheese) and drink some orange juice, anything else would make me puke (literally). Strangely enough though, I do love breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, buttered toast, hash browns, coffee, etc…) late at night. This sort of food tastes amazing after a night on the town and you’re at a 24 hour diner being served by a waitress with too much make-up on.
Regardless of whatever time it is, the best place to eat breakfast food is at IHOP, or the International House of Pancakes. Though there isn’t any local IHOP near Toronto, when I do visit the US the first place I go to is an IHOP. What makes the trip worthwhile is their Stuffed French Toast, among other delicious choices. According to their website, its cinnamon raisin French toast stuffed with sweet cream cheese filling with cool strawberry topping. OMG it’s so good! Add some whipped cream, butter and maple syrup on top and you’re experience what heaven must be like with every bite. It’s truly one of my favorite foods, and it blows every other breakfast dessert out of the water. Bon Appétit!
