Cinnamon Creme Brulee French Toast at Claudine Kitchen & Bakeshop

Happy Memorial Day randommealers! This was yesterday's random meal of the day brunch. We have an order of the Cinnamon Creme Brulee French Toast. The creme brûlée french toast was topped with a kumquat marmalade, rose berries and a sprinkle of macadamia nuts.

I enjoy trying new restaurants and sometimes very recently open dining establishments which this one is. Bunch is aways fun except when you stand in line and order at the counter akin to a fast food joint. Well, that is what you do here and to be honest, that is not the brunch experience that I was looking for. You presented a fantastic and beautiful dish with half the experience at the full sit-down and dine in price.

Ham Steak and Eggs Breakfast at Foxy's

We have for our random meal of the day a fantastic order of Ham Steak and Eggs. I do believe that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. We start with a gigantic juicy ham steak as the featured item. We then add side of eggs over easy and an hearty side of classic hash browns. We finish this random meal with some sourdough toast.

The funny thing is sometimes you have choices of where to sit and other times you do not. Normally I prefer to sit at the booth at this restaurant so that I can use the table side toaster for hot and fresh toast. The drawback to this seating is the lack of light. For this random meal, we were given the option to wait for a booth to open up or to sit at a table next to a window. For my randommealers I sacrificed toasting my own toast for the pop of light!

Shiromaru Hakata Classic Ramen at Ippudo

We have from our random meal of the day archive an order of the Shiromaru Hakata Classic Ramen. This random meal photo is actually more than a year old. I was watching a YouTube video featuring the Fung Bros and they were talking about a few of the best ramen spots in the United States. According to Tabelog, Ippudo is ranked 4th on the list. It did not disappoint. Another ramen spot checked off my list!

Found at Ippudo in New York, New York.
