For my first food blog entry, I wanted to feature about something special. I celebrated my birthday today with some of my closest Yelp friends at one of my favorite spots in Manhattan Beach, The Strand House. The Strand House was a great spot for a birthday brunch because we had a wonderful view of the beach. Aside from an amazing view, they offer all kinds of yummy foods from the savory to the sweet.
My main course for my birthday celebration was the Eggs benedict. It had house made Canadian bacon on top of two English muffin. I loved the crispy edges on the English muffins and the bacon. I was also very fond of the creamy hollandaise sauce that covered the mufins. On the side were crispy round potatoes.
I also got to try some of the entrees that my friends chose. I tried the belgian waffle with blueberry ice cream and the Margherita pizza with a thin crust.
At the end I got special birthday doughnuts. There were three types of donuts: blueberry glaze, vanilla bean and caramel with fleur de sel. It came with a nice birthday candle. It was such a sweet and lovely birthday treat!
I also got a sweet hello kitty lollipop as a extra birthday treat!
I noticed however one is actually Mimmy (Hello Kitty’s twin) and not Hello Kitty! Can you tell which?
Thank you to my fabulous foodie friends for the Yelp love and sweet birthday!
