I admire people who dedicate their Sunday mornings to making home-made breakfasts. To me, Sunday morning is when I make up the sleep I miss during the weekdays. The last thing I want to do after waking up from my long sleep on Sunday morning is to make breakfast, I don't even want to make coffee. Unless I have some compelling reasons to stay home on Sunday, then I will unwillingly make breakfast. Otherwise, after I rise and wash up on Sunday, I normally just leap out of the door and drive to my favorite places to get breakfasts. I usually go to different places to have different types of breakfast from week to week, and today, I went to one of my favorite Asian bakeries to get my beloved Portuguese Egg Tart ($1.65), to enjoy with my favorite Iced Coffee (medium 85C Coffee from the same bakery for $2.75, equivalent to Starbucks "Venti" size).
This Portuguese egg tart is almost as good as the famous one I had from Macau during my vacation there a few years ago. This is actually the freshest and best tasting egg tart I ever had in America. (Well, the last time I had Portuguese egg tart in America was at a supposedly authentic Portuguese cafe in Sherman Oaks CA, which I didn't care for because it was cold and the pastry wasn't fresh enough for me. I wasn't impressed with the way it tasted either. )
I also like the iced coffee here better than Starbucks because it's not as bitter, but it's more flavorful and aromatic, and it comes already perfectly creamed and sweetened. Sunday breakfast like this is one of the reasons I put up with the high rent and ridiculous long commute to live in Los Angeles.
