Trust me. I did not spell it wrong. Omelette House decided to spell “omelet” that way. According to grammarist.com, they are both the correct spelling. Since we are not in France, we will spell it the American way — Omelet. I am not going to lie. I said the word a million times in my head, and now it has lost all meaning. Despite that, I can’t seem to get eggs off of my mind. Once berated for being a cholesterol high food, today’s world doesn’t think so. Eggs are high in protein, and less in fat compared to other “cuts” of “meat”. It’s cheap, it’s tasty, and you can make omelets with it. Omellete House in Garden Grove has a wide variety. They are simple and delicious.
The Forentine had hickory smoked bacon, spinach and Swiss cheese. It was topped with sour cream, black olives, and green onion. The spinach and swiss cheese made for a nice mix of flavors. I know I may sound crazy, but the bacon seemed out of place. I think maybe ham would have been tastier in this dish. Otherwise, I liked the sour cream and black olives.
The Tasso omelet was my favorite, probably because of all the meat. It had Italian sausage, breakfast sausage, ham, and bacon. Inside it also had tomatoes and cheddar cheese. The cheese melted nicely all together with the meat party. I added some hot sauce and I was good to go. Though nothing spectacular, their hash browns were tasty. It had a nice crunch to it — Almost like tiny little french fries all compacted into hash browns. (Yes, I had to incorporate “french” in the hash browns too.)
It isn’t breakfast without french toast. Interestingly, I think Omelette House is known for this dish. They call it the Berry Good French Toast. This thing was huge, and very delicious to look at. The berries and toppings were fresh — they sure do pack on the fruit. The french toast already had a berry reduction (raspberry?) over it, so it didn’t need much syrup. On a side note, it would have been better with some chocolate sauce instead of the berry sauce. Although, they wouldn’t be able to call it the “Berry” Good French Toast. All in all, it was a pretty solid french toast, especially for an omelet joint.
An “Omelette” and french toast, sounds like a French breakfast to me. I had a nice breakfast here. It isn’t as glamorous as the ones in Los Angeles, but it was great its own way. The place is a bit small, so there aren’t many seats. The wait was a bit long, but worth it. They have a lot of omelets to choose from as well as other traditional breakfasts. The question is, what omelet will you get?
