This Restaurant Does Cap ‘n Crunch French Toast and a Hangover Burger with Kobe Beef Chili

French-Toast-2

Not many milennials out there can haul ass out of bed early enough to make that mysterious thing called brunch. However, if the menu includes something as enticing as Captain Crunch French Toast, exceptions can be made. Planet Dailies in Los Angeles hasn’t been in the brunch game long. Only a few months to be exact.

The Bubbles Brunch menu was created by head chef Joshua Wilson and his team. Located on top of the Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles, Planet Dailies offered a massive selection for their new early morn’ spread. Foodbeast was lucky enough to get an entire menu full of POV shots of food porn.

Hangover Burger

Burger-01

A 7-oz. Burger with Kobe Chili, bacon, jack and cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and a sunny-side egg. Topped with a habenero pepper.

Burger-02

Served in a bed of sweet potato fries.

_____

Southwest Burrito

Burrito

Chorizo, red and green peppers, onions & potatoes topped with avocado drizzled sour cream and pico de gallo. Definitely trumps many of the breakfast burritos I’ve eaten on my way to work.

______

Crab and Chorizo Benedict

Crab-Benedict

Sautéed crab, tri-color peppers, onions and chorizo. Topped with a poached egg and a spicy hollandaise sauce. One of my personal favorites of the day. The chorizo bits drenched in the egg yolk… untouchable.

_____

Captain Crunch French Toast

French-Toast

French Toast rolled in a special Cap’n Crunch mix and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Hands down the best thing on the menu, which is saying something ’cause everything was pretty on point. Super light, the sticks had an initial crunch to them before biting into the soft, cloudy center. Whether dipped in syrup or eaten dry, definitely worth trying once.

_____

Italian Frittata

Fritata

A frittata with Roma tomato, feta, drizzled with balsamic and topped fresh basil. Super light and cool, the balsamic was a nice touch.

_____

Kale Salad

Kale-Salad

Fresh kale with goat cheese, dried cranberries & roasted sunflower seeds, served with agave dressing. The only excuse we had for downing the entire brunch menu was that we killed the salad. Because healthy.

_____

Sunrise Pizza

Pizza

Mozzarella & cheddar cheese, bacon, yellow and cherry tomatoes, green onion topped with a sunny-side up egg. Had to fight the urge not to gobble half the pizza since I still had tons more to taste. Super savory.

_____

Chipotle Shrimp Quesadilla

Quesadilla

Grilled shrimp, poblano pepper, jack & cheddar cheese topped with avocado & sour cream. Had some trouble getting everything into my mouth in a single bite. Looking back, I should have used a fork but I was a little too excited to try this.

_____

Dailies Breakfast Sandwich

Sandwich

Heirloom tomato, baby arugula, fried egg, Swiss Cheese, bacon, avocado, tomato, sautéed onion and goat cheese. It was a nice mix of fresh and heavy. The avocado and arugula was a nice addition and contrast to the hash.

_____

Short Rib Tater Tots

Tots

Crisp tater tots topped with boneless short ribs, caramelized onions, mushrooms and blue cheese crumbles. The tots were crisp, the short rib fell apart with a fork and the cheese was gooey. Couldn’t ask for more.

_____

Mimosas

Drinks

We washed everything down with some bubbles. Made with peach, mango, orange and cranberry juices and combined with champagne, it made for a great finale to the whole shebang.

Meet Captain Mac Nut, Your Cap’n Crunch and Macadamia Nut-Crusted French Toast Mouthgasm

The first time someone in the office read off the menu from Stacks Pancake House in Dana Point, Calif. — which includes, among other things, Nutella S’mores French Toast, Oreo Cookies N’ Cream Belgium Waffles and Kalua Pork Eggs Benedict — my first response was, “Why in the hell haven’t we covered this yet?”

And here we are.

I eventually settled on the Captain Mac Nut, chosen partially for the macadamias, chosen mostly for the name (still can’t say it out loud without snickering). Pictured above and below, this buttery, crunchy, decadently fried marvel comes either “plain” and topped with strawberries, or “peanut buttery” with optional bananas — as well as, of course, its nominal C-Crunch and mac nut pieces as coating, for an orgy of island-inspired breakfast foods in your mouth.
