Heaven ‘n Eggs is the place to go to when one wants big stacks of pancakes or breakfast fare at 2 p.m. Honestly, I preferred its old look in Glorietta when it still had bright interiors, the wooden swing benches, white furniture and murals of clouds on the wall. It was more suited for the kids and the young-at-heart. I don’t know why the owners (Red Crab group of restaurants) decided to adopt the rock-star theme, at least for this branch where we go to. However, it sure clicks with some people like my music-loving husband. He does like the large posters of Jim Morrison, John Lennon and other rock stars on the wall, the music blaring from the stereo and also their food.
It didn’t come as a surprise, therefore, that HNE would be the first resto in the Philippines to come up with a special Michael Jackson menu in honor of the departed King of Pop. The food goes with names like….
Black or white – Double-stuffed oreo pancakes with white-chocolate vanilla sauce and cookies & cream ice cream (P235)
Beat It – three-egg sourcream scramble with chive and smoked salmon on multi-grain bread (P285)
Neverland – silver dollar pancakes with candy sprinkles, gummy bears, M & M’s and whipped cream (note:sounds great for the kids) – P245
Calling their meat dish Pepsi Burned Ribs seems awful, considering how we saw a footage of The Jacko’s Pepsi commercial recently. But yes, it’s described as “glazed pork spare ribs with Pepsi BBQ sauce, java rice and salsa.” (P255)
Don’t stop till you get enough … warm cheese fondue with sourdough bread, ham cubes and potato wedges (P320)
Thriller – dark chocolate, peanut butter and banana waffle, with raspberry syrup (P235)
plus a few others on the menu!
Here’s some filling dishes we ate in Heaven & Eggs recently:
Jim’s Short Skirts (P278)- beef strips and peppers in a warm tortilla with guacamole, refried beans and mango salsa, with deep-fried shoestring potatoes
Rockin’ Benedict (295) – Canadian ham on toasted English muffin and hollandaise sauce with grilled asparagus and shoestring potatoes.
Rating: value for money, comfort food!
