Broken yolk Extreme Omelet

joecazzaa Apr 14, 2009 02:00 PM

Has anyone on here ever tried to eat the Championship omelet at The Broken Yolk Cafe in P.B.? It is a huge 15 egg omelet with cheese, home fries, 2 biscuits and chili with muchrooms and onions. It is enormous. Comes on a pizza platter? I tried this a few months ago and was just talking about it with friends. You have 1 hour to eat it all. I didnt even get through half of it, let alone the home fries.

Lemme know if you have had any luck with this Man Vs. Food style challenge let alone passed it.

      When you talk with friends about eating a 15-egg omelet, do they kind of look you up and down and back away if you start to get too close? The problem with omelets in the modern American lawyer-supervised restaurant is NOT that they are too small. Hard to believe Broken Yolk solved the real problems and still flushed half the coop in your direction.

        Right. Because we all know that the only way to improve upon the experience of consuming a nauseating and coronary-inducing excess of cholesterol-ridden eggs, cheese, mushrooms, onions, home fries, biscuits, and chili is to induce eaters to consume its entirety in 60 minutes or less.

        Where else but in America?

          "Where else but in America?" Well, Japan, England, New Zealand, Germany, and Thailand, for example, all of which have qualified contestants for the Nathan's International July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest. (See Wikipedia entry.) When the movie comes out, I assume it will have subtitles.

            You may note that the contestants all come to the U.S. for this event of hideous excess. My statement still stands.

            Please keep the mushrooms and onions from being lambasted as cholestoral-ridden.

              I admit they are being slandered through guilt by association. Perhaps they should be more selective of the company they keep...?

            Although I like the Broken Yolk a lot, I've also never understood the Man Vs. Food type of challenges like the championship omelet. Who can eat that much food and not feel sick for the rest of the day? Their regular breakfast plates are generous enough as is.

              I agree, I've eaten there and the regular fare can be split between 2 and you'll never leave hungry. I've seen this huge plate ordered but mostly by parties of 4 to 6 who all take part, I guess it's a better deal vs ordering separately but, I wouldn't like to see my plate stacked with mounds of food like a pile of garbage.

                The breakfast specials (from 6-8 each morning) are a normal size.

                  Too early for me! have you ever tried their quiche? They have some good combinations.

                    Oh yes, the quiche is wonderful. I just hate crowds and I try to get everything done before 10 am, especially on weekends. Broken Yolk is one place that has the breakfast specials all seven days. There is not a wait on weekdays at 9 a.m., but on weekends, forget it.
