Grand Slam- All Day Breakfast

Postby bobepine » 05 Jan 2008, 13:04

It's just newly opened and it's in the same building as The Fitness Factory. The restaurant is located near Subway, next to the climbing wall.

The restaurant is owned by the same owner of the Fitness Factory, and he hired a North American chef. I must say, that man knows how to cook a breakfast. The menu is not very big, but they have enough to please most as far as breakfast is concerned. Eggs fried to perfection (in butter, not oil), crispy bacon, home made hash browns and good coffee. That's my idea of a good breakfast.

They also serve omelets, and home made waffles. HUGE portions. Almost too big actually, the omelets are about one inch thick and 10 inches in diameter. The plate of waffles is even bigger, you get two waffles about 3/4 inch thick and 10 inches in diameter. I could not believe the size of the waffles. One would suffice, but no, you get two. Just make sure you are hungry before you order that one. And of course, they also have French toasts served with a choice of honey or real maple syrup.

I think it's great. I can now get up late on weekends and have a place to go eat breakfast where someone actually cooks breakfast the way we cook breakfast back home.

On the down side, the chef doesn't make the toasts, servers do, and they don't toast them enough. Make sure to ask that your toasts be toasted longer until they actually look brown. We explained what a toast should look like to the servers the last time we were there and maybe they addressed that already.

The other thing is the decor is a bit bland at the moment. I guess the decoration is ordered but it has not come in yet. So the look of the place should be improved once they finish decorating it.

Go check it out for yourself!

Hmm...so they serve breakfast all day?

I could order an omelet or pancakes at 5 pm?

That'd be great. I know places serve breakfast up to a certain time. It truly does suck.

And the evening shops that serve breakfast...well, their eggs are not that tasty. I gotta stop by this place in the future. When I think of Grand Slam,I think of Denny's ....and heck, I miss Denny's.


Anything else served at Grand Slam?? I'd like to know before I get a chance to go out there...

I live only about 5 minutes from there, passed by a few times but didn't know what kind of food they serve.

I'll try to stop by some time this week and see how the food is.

One of my teachers eats there a lot and she likes it, so I decided to try it out myself. I had the "grand slam" breakfast. It was ok, but I found everything extremely salty. It was nice to get decent hash browns though. The coffee was undrinkable, however, unless you like it watery and weak.

Sure, that's where they stole the name from. It's no coincidence.

But, as long as there's no Denny's in Taiwan, maybe this place will suffice.

I don't think they stole the name from Denny's. The place is located underneath the Fitness Factory (much like a Worlds Gym) and the decor is sports themed. With that in mind I think you can see where they came up with the name.
