So one of the things that I promised myself I would do this year was get out more. Try new things and just get out of my house. I spent a lot of time last year at home watching my shows, reading and watching movies but not this year. This year is going to be the year that I start doing things. I’m going to try new restaurants, go to concerts and just have fun again.
I’m fortunate to have friends that will go wherever I drag them and last month, I was lucky that my friend had a birthday so that we can tick a new restaurant off our something new to try list.
Mulu’s birthday was last month and we got a group together to celebrate her special day with breakfast at the new Great Maple restaurant at Del Amo Mall. I hadn’t ever been and to be honest, I never heard of it before Hanah brought it to our attention. Thank goodness for Hanah cause without her, we would have celebrated Mulu’s birthday at IHop. LOL.
We tried a little bit of everything and everything that we tried was great.
We started with an order of the Maple Bacon Donuts.
These doughnuts were delicious. The doughnuts itself were light and fluffy and with the maple syrup, powdered sugar and bacon bits, the flavor factor skyrocketed and it totally rocked my socks. Loved these.
Next up, we tried the GM Brioche French Toast Logs. Look at those suckers. They were pretty big french toast logs and to say that they were delicious is putting it mildly. I could have happily ate these things all day long. The bread had the perfect amount of crispiness on the outside and softness on the inside. The syrup and the bacon bits? Only added to the greatness that were these french toast logs. I’m a fan.
Last up, I had the Hardwood Smoked Bacon Scramble Melt to round out our breakfast and while it wasn’t my favorite part of the meal, it was still delicious. I loved the eggs, the freshness of the ingredients and the potatoes were fabulous too.
All in all, I had a great experience at the Great Maple. The waitstaff were friendly and informative (they answered all of our questions with a smile on their face) and our food was promptly delivered so really, I have no complaints. It was a little fancier than what I’m used to but that’s a good thing. Haha.
