This summer when my mom and I went to Alaska, we decided to spend one day looking around Anchorage, and this is our breakfast the morning of that first day. I did my research really well, and found us this cute little local-packed place, Snow City Cafe.
There were so many great options on the menu, it took me quite a while to decide what to order; but I think I chose pretty well in the end (I did have a little help from our friendly waitress). My breakfast was called the Polar Bear Breakfast and included: pancake or regular French toast, two eggs, and a choice of any meat/protein. For a few dollars extra, you could upgrade to stuffed French toast, so of course I did.
The stuffed French toast was made from a French Oven Bakery’s baguette, stuffed with mandarin orange cream cheese, topped with toasted walnuts, and served with real maple syrup and raspberry butter.
Maybe I went a little overboard with the amount of pictures I took of this French toast, but I mean, look at it! How gooey and delicious does that look? It tasted amazing! It was almost like eating Thanksgiving dinner, when I try to get a little piece of everything on my fork all at once; I would cut off a pice of the French toast, make sure I had some orange cream stuffing in there, dip it in the syrup, and smear some butter on it. It was the ultimate breakfast indulgence, and I don’t even usually eat French toast.
Since it was my first full day in Alaska, I was totally ready to try their reindeer sausage, which I had never heard of or seen anywhere else. It was surprisingly lean, very gamey, and flavorful. It was something I would definitely eat once in a while if it was available near home.
My mom ordered a veggie scramble and these hash browns, and neither of us was disappointed.
Everything looked delicious, and if we’d spent more time in Anchorage, I’m sure we would have been back.
