Ricky’s All Day Grill
My friend Ryan invited me out for breakfast last week. We’ve been friends for a few years now. We met at a Chinese Moon Festival party in Waterloo. We both lived in Taichung for about six years but he was just getting there as I was leaving. In fact I’d already left. I was living in Taipei then.
But in a sense our stories fit together like two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, that puzzle being a map of Taiwan, my piece being Feng Chai Zhong Qing, Ryan’s Dung Hai Long Jing.
He chose Ricky’s All Day Grill. I was at the same location about ten years ago when it was a Pizza Hut. I was eager to see the interior as although I liked Pizza Hut, their interiors were always very basic, lots of white ceramic tile and cherry red baseboards and such – at least that’s how I remember it.
As an aside, I’d like to search out all of the old Pizza Huts as a foodie-hobby not that I’m a foodie or have time for any new hobbies but I think Arabasque on Victoria Street used to be one so there must be a whole lot of others.
My kids asked me why all the Pizza Huts closed down.
“I guess people just moved on”, I said.
Anyway, Rickey’s opened more than a year ago and I’d never been; I was curious to see inside.
It’s a nice place. I always like restaurants that have big comfy booths and Ricky’s does. The server was nice and brought lots of coffee. That’s important. I expect to drink a lot of coffee when I’m out for breakfast.
The Breakfast deals are available everyday until 11am. Ryan had the Single Benny ($4.99) and if I’m anything I’m predictable – I had the Denver Omelet ($5.99). I always always get an omelet when I’m out for breakfast.
It was a very good breakfast.
The burgers look good. I think I’ll go back and see about lunch sometime soon.
