I’m a chef and there are breakfasts that I love to order and others that I never do.
I won’t order an omelet, yogurt parfait or avocado toast at the restaurant.
I love grabbing shakshuka, acai bowls and burritos for breakfast.
Ordering an omelet can be risky when you want your eggs cooked a certain way.
This one may be controversial, but unless I know the eggs will have a lot of movement in the center, I’m not ordering a breakfast omelet.

I’m a firm believer in the saying “fry in the pan, dry on the plate” – and dry takes on a whole new meaning the moment your meal arrives at a restaurant table.
Egg whites are not the movement.
As stated, I’m not someone who orders omelettes at the restaurant. I will also avoid ordering any egg dish with just the whites.
When you remove the delicious fatty egg yolks, you walk away with an even drier breakfast.
I only order bagels from proven places.
A great bagel is a work of art. So unless I’m dining at a known and tried-and-true bagel sanctuary (which usually involves a long line and short service), I opt for toast or an English muffin for my breakfast sandwich. .
I love yogurt, but I eat enough parfaits at home.
As someone with a deep and undying love for yogurt, I’m pretty picky about my parfaits. Plus, it’s my favorite breakfast at home – when I eat out, I like to try something a little more adventurous.
I don’t think you should order plain pancakes.
The saucer-sized pancakes you find at most diners need something to break up the monotony a bit.
For me, that means chocolate chips, blueberries, or bananas. And, of course, a generous dollop of whipped cream.
On the other hand, I love ordering a breakfast sandwich on a croissant.
Why not elevate your egg and cheese and serve it on a buttery croissant? It’s a treat, especially if you dine at a place that makes its pastries in-house.
Breakfast burritos can be hearty and delicious.
A great breakfast burrito, with a fresh tortilla, scrambled eggs and lots of salsa can be hard to perfect at home, but so satisfying when made right at the restaurant.
Acai bowls are tasty.
There’s something about having someone else make your smoothie that makes it magical. And whenever I can choose my own toppings? I’m in.
Shakshuka is also a great savory choice.
Popular in North Africa and the Middle East, this tomato and egg dish is savory and delicious.
Give me a stub of crusty bread and a bubbling skillet of jammy tomato sauce enveloping runny yolks and I’m happy.
If there’s a Bloody Mary bar, I’m one.
Pickles, olives and shrimp, oh my! Even a bloody maiden can hit the mark when you’re looking for something tasty and satisfying. I like that I can have extra topping on top.
Chilaquiles make a killer breakfast.
This Mexican dish is a delicious display of complex textures: crunchy fries, thick salsa, creamy sauce and melty cheese. It’s a perfect excuse to eat tortilla chips for breakfast.
