I am in Silicon Valley this week for the quarterly business trip to review the state of our operations with our CEO. This usually means five days of operations review stress, late nights of slide fondling and less than inspiring hotel breakfasts.
The hotel/inn our team is staying is notorious for having a boring breakfast selection (different brands of cereal, different breads, hard boiled eggs, and all the cheese sticks you can eat!). So boring that it has bothered me enough to suggest to the hotel management that their breakfast selection was a deal breaker. Hey, I am a breakfast person and my golden standards are still tapsilog (Tapa – Sinangang-Itlog, classic Filipino breakfast of cured beef, fried egg and fried rice or lugaw).
The picture above is my everyday working breakfast, bowl of high fiber cereal, skim milk, and my email inbox. BORING.
Post the operations review however, we make it a point to drown our sorrows (or celebrate as the case this quarter) with a thousand calorie breakfast. This trip, we spent our 2500 per day calorie budget at the Country Way in Fremont.
The place is a low wooden building plastered with huge signs that call out the hearty breakfast offerings ( steak and eggs! french toast! boneless pork with eggs!). The decor feels like its stuck in the seventies and my friend who grew up in this area swear that these were the same waitresses who served him decades ago. The place was packed.
