Review: MARKET CLUB unglamorus and straight foward-just good food.

The egg, easy,medium,hard,scrambled, sometimes poached and boiled. Difficult to ruin and the center of most breakfasts.

When choosing a place for breakfast, my friend and I prefer non-chain restaurants, where many of the items (eggs,potatoes,pancakes) is poured from a box and where the meat is sliced so thin that it can only be eaten with your hands.

Today’s adventure was the “Market Club” a restaurant in the center of warehouse area on 5th Street off Broadway. about a mile from the Tower Theater.

This morning I thought I wanted pancakes..and eggs and bacon. and that’s exactly what I ordered. However, across the counter from me was man eating two large pork chops,eggs,hash browns and tortillas. My I am watching my intake… But I couldn’t help staring at this huge plate of food.

My friend’s ordered  fried rice with egg,which is only prepared on Sundays.

There is nothing glamorous about “Market Club” it is straight forward. The service is friendly and pleasant, the patrons from what I could tell were regulars. There were smiles all around.

My egg was an egg, the bacon was bacon, but the pancakes where intense.. Thick and flavorful, my short stack (2 pancakes) was the equivalent of four pancakes at your average chain.

My friends fried rice was moist and the Zucchini was perfect topped with a buttery egg.

Market Club was a pleasant surprise and very much worth a visit. The restaurant is closed on Mondays…

On my next visit….I’m having the chops…

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
