Breakfast in Salinas? I went to "Sang's" and it was good! ^L^

  • 2

Hello Central Coast eaters!

I found myself in Old Town Salinas this Sunday (after calling my Mom of course!) and stropped at an old favorite place for breakfast, Sang's on Main Street, right near the Steinbeck Center.

It an interesting mix of hispanic and oriental folks, but I have always liked their heavy breakfasts. Why I think a Hawaiian boy would enjoy some of the specials with their mounds of rice and pools of gravy!

I had my "usual" - four eggs over medium, thrown into a bowl with two pieces of american cheese and a bunch of sliced green onions on top, a side of bacon and a side of link sausages!

I smash the eggs, cheese and green onion in the bowl with my fork, until it is a semi-smooth cholesterol spread, then slice up all the link sausages and throw them in, and give it all a good "folding" stir.

Finally, I wolf it all down, with bites of bacon and gulps of coffee in between!

I was in heaven!

Obviously not a light meal, but it was already after noon, and I was h-u-n-g-r-y!

I have seen lighter fare served at Sang's - just not to me - in fact one of my favorite things about the place is they seem willing to make anything you ask, and do a good job at it too!

Anyhow, I hadn't been there in ages, and it's good to see it hasn't changed.

(Then I went to Harbor Freight, ran into a sale, bought a new toolbox, and stopped at the In-and-Out for a pair of Double-Doubles, Protein Style! °L° I had too - I was in Salinas!)

Enjoy!

  1. Thomas, thanks for the breakfast report! And, don't forget that Wednesday's lunch special is prime rib.

    1. One of the great diner like experiences that has intriguing menu items. As you say a mix of asian and western cultures.
