So There I Was, Dying From The Flu...And...A Breakfast Recommendation on the N Line....Darla's!

Oh, Loyal Readers....I had hoped long ago to regale you with tales of the Double Decker Bus, tales of Holiday MUNI, and more...and instead I got a freakin' flu (and you have to realize I NEVER get sick, EVER) that kicked my ass something fierce for the duration.

It sucked, and for the first time since I was a kid, my holidays sucked royally. There's no good way to describe it. Anyway, things should be back to normally forthwith, but in the meantime, I wanted to post a short recommendation for breakfast on the N.

Darla's on Irving Street is rightfully known for their awesome burgers and fries, which many folks enjoy while playing Brainstormer Trivia at the Awesome Blackthorn, but many may not realize their breakfast menu is also really good.

In particular, Darla's manages to make a breakfast sandwich that defies physics and restaurant nonsense and is one of the best things I've ever had. Now, you'd think eggs, cheese and sausage on an English muffin would be easy to do, but you'd be wrong. Just try the over-cooked abominations at Starbucks on Irving, which I'd reluctantly put up with, and you'll see what I mean.

Darla, however, manages to make something that's fresh, just enough food without being too much, and tastes amazing. And it's accompanied with some bottomless (well sort of bottomless) coffee and the good will of a locally owned biz.

It was also my last day out before I had the horrid flu hit, so it provided me with a nice memory as I puked my guts out a few days later, unrelated to said awesome sandwich. The flu sucks, the holidays sucked, but Darla's was a beacon of hope in a sea of bullcrap.

Lighter lit because...Darla's rocks!

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Rest up, so you can get back on that N :)

I don't think Starbucks food should be compared to actual restaurant food.

Anyhow, Art's cafe is the best place to eat breakfast on Irving. If you can get a seat that is, which you most likely can't. I refuse to wait for breakfast.

That flu sucks. Had it last month.

On a lighter note, I totally agree about Darla's. We have been going there since the day they opened and have a great meal everytime. The green chili cheeseburger is excellent.

Darla's? Greg, you're so daring.

Ick ick ick.

Doc is right - Ive been going to Darla's for about 3 years. That promptly ended when I saw that they got a 60/100 on their last inspection. Considering Ive never seen anyone else below about an 80, they must have some serious problems there. In any case, I dont care if they get back up to 100 - Im not eating there again. You can get a good burger up 9th at Cybelles, just ask them not to cook it until it turns grey - which seems to be their preference!
