I’ve been hearing a lot of bad things said about food in the US lately. Things like, “I couldn’t find one good thing to eat” or “The plates are way too big”, and “THE COFFEE? HAVE YOU TRIED THE COFFEE! YUCK!”
I wanted to list off some places I know and love immediately to prove them wrong, but what would have been the point. They couldn’t really jump on a 24 hour flight just to check them out. So, instead, I figured I can share them on here and when you’re in the US you can take advantage.
Take one: O-B House in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The majority of the population in Fort Lauderdale and I love the O-B House. I didn’t take a poll to find that out (so it may broad and not accurate), but when you have people waiting in line 30 minutes+ in Fort Lauderdale there’s gotta be some magic behind the curtain. Thats especially true of a cafe in downtown riverfront, with the beach ten minutes East and the IMAX Theatre two minutes west.
Let me start by saying the orange juice is incredible, and you know that’s not a quality of many cafes. Look at that bang for your buck! Yes, the large cup out of the four in the picture above was mine. 🙂
Let me continue by adding: I always order the “Build Your Own Omelet”. It’s basically a buffet without the food sitting out getting cold and collecting bacteria part. The O-B House uses three free range eggs to make these omelets and you can choose up to 4 toppings to go in. Heaven! I change up my toppings, but my constant is the Pepper Jack cheese. I’m also a huge fan of the O-B House toast that comes with it. It’s thick, lightly toasted and comes out warm and is, surprisingly, not so filling.
One of my favorite things about the O-B House (second to the food) is the amount of pride they take in the making of every plate. On the menu they kindly ask you to be patient with them about the price (not bad!) and the wait (not so bad either!) as they are using the best and freshest ingredients they can get their hands on and take the time to cook every plate close to perfection. Those are my words, taken from theirs.
I have a few more words to THOSE people saying THOSE things about THOSE 50 states: SEE, GUYS! And this is just the start.
