Alec Torelli stops for breakfast at the popular Toast Bakery and Café in Beverly Hills
By Alec Torelli
At Toast in Beverly Hills, I am lucky to get a table. I deliberate and order “The Oscar,” thin strips of chicken, guacamole, fresh salsa and eggs over medium and melted cheese in grilled corn tortillas.
To drink, I opt for the White Coconut Creme Tea, one of their many eclectic choices. Before I can take a sip of water, my food arrives; so quick that I’m skeptical.
Nevertheless it looks fantastic, eloquently presented in a skillet on a fine wooden place mat.
All my reservations are gone when I take the first bite. Where typical breakfast tacos bore you with scrambled eggs, this beauty tests the limitations using over medium ones. When I try into avocado, salsa and chicken strips, I am greeted by an oozing yolk.
Seasonal mulberries and blood oranges were just a few of the treasures I discovered.
The food is gone as fast as it arrives. Delicious.
