Fat Nat's Eggs

We visited Fat Nat's for breakfast a couple weeks ago (October 16th). We live quite close to Nat's and it is a weekend breakfast favorite for us. Last spring they moved down a couple doors in the same strip mall to a larger location. This is a good thing, because it has greatly reduced any wait times fora table. The food is still the same quality and they have added some new servers. Nat's is a casual diner, so don't go expecting anything fancy. The food is all great though. Lots of homemade sauces and fresh salsas. The service is very quick and very competent. I like that when you order a pop some of the servers will give you a coke with ice and another glass of coke without ice so you have your refill ready as soon as you need it.

I had Mike's omlette. This was my first time trying an omelet at Nat's. It was very large and filled with ham, cheese and American fries with hollandaise sauce over the top. As you can see the portion was very generous. Their hollandaise is very good as well, quite light actually. I think the American fries inside (which are cut up new potatoes that are fried in seasonings) could have been crispier, but that is my personal preference. There was a lot of cheese and ham inside as well. I could only eat half of it.
John had the two eggs with bacon. This tends to be one of his favorites here. The bacon is good quality and the scrambled eggs are light and fluffy. It is a lot of food for the price. 

Fat Nat's has a great breakfast and I'd recommend it to anyone. I will have to post pictures next time we visit as they have some specialities that are really great. (Interesting egg Benedict's mainly.)

Discounts: They also have a $5 off per month coupon in the Metro Dining guide punch card set.

Barrio Taco Truck

Last Friday, the Barrio taco truck was parked in my neck of the woods! Normally, it is parked a lot farther away from where I work so I've never tried it.  

I had the taco special of the week, which was a pulled chicken taco with guacamole, pickled onions and jalapenos. The special also came with chips, salsa and guacamole. I also had a Mexican Coke. Yum, Yum! The tacos had great flavor and the chips were the exact same served in the restaurant.  It was $10 for the taco basket and $3.50 for the Coke. I'd go back anytime the Barrio taco truck is nearby!

Velle Deli - Minneapolis Food Truck

I tried a couple of egg rolls at the Vellee Deli food truck today. Very, very delicious! The outer wrapper was very think and crisp. The dipping was had good flavor and had a bit of spice to it as well. $4 for 5 mini egg rolls. I'd order these again!
