$3.95 Filipino Breakfast at Grill City - Irvine
How much would you pay for a Filipino breakfast consisting of char-kissed tocino, two fried eggs and two heaping scoops of garlic fried rice? $6? $10?
"Sure, that sounds reasonable!"
No! You're paying too much! How about $3.95?
Yes, for a measly one-time payment of $3.95, you get this much food, right now, at Seafood City's lunch counter, Grill City.
"Wow! You can't get an Egg McMuffin and hashbrowns for that price!"
No you can't! But wait! There's more!
"What? How much more could there be!"
I'll tell you! You get coffee with unlimited refills!
"No! You're joking!"
I am not joking. And you know what else is unlimited?
"Alright, I'll bite. What else?!"
Unlimited refills on rice!
"Unlimited refills on rice? Is Seafood City trying to lose money? Is this some kind of loss leader like IKEA's $1.99 breakfasts and Costco's $4.99 rotisserie chicken?"
Who knows?! Who cares! It's $3.95, for eggs, proteins like longanisa, SPAM or two kinds of tocino, and all the fluffy fried rice festooned with crispy garlic you can eat! This has to be the best deal in all of Irvine.
"I'll say! So how does it taste?"
Like someone's nanay (that's Tagalog for "mom") made it. And if you want an upgrade with other meats, it's $5.50 for not one, but two butterflied baby milkfish with a tangy flesh akin to yogurt; and only $4.95 for the sugary beef tapa. If you need something deep fried this early in the morning, you can add a crispy Jeprox as a side dish for a buck. As with all silogs, be sure to dribble the supplied thimbles of seasoned vinegar on everything. That's the Pinoy Way!
"Vinegar? Fish for breakfast? That sounds exotic! I'm sold! Thank you Monster Munching!"
