Original Pancake House

This one is a no-brainer. Eggs…and meat….lots of ’em. The omelettesĀ are so good! A half-dozen eggs that are not mixed with pancake batter (I asked the manager), rolled, and thrown into the oven. Get it with ham, bacon, chorizo, spinach, jalapenos, or whatever you would like. You do need to be careful with the sides however. They come with pancakes. They will let you substitute other carby type sides (hash browns, breakfast potatoes, fruit). You can try to get a side of meat like bacon or ham, but they usually say no. If you are really hungry and willing to fork over the extra low carb-dough (yeah I know it’s cheesy), just tell them that you don’t want pancakes and you are going to pay for a side of meat.

Asian food…pretty tough to get low carb food here if you just look directly at the menu. But with a few adjustments, you can get some food that is satisfying.

My wife loves to order orange peel beef, but with several modifications. Ask for the beef to be unbreaded, and tossed with a light amount of sauce.

Next, ask for steamed veggies instead of rice. They accommodate you quite easily and it tastes great! You can do that with several dishes their, but try to avoid ones that are breaded or deep fried!
