B & P Just Like Home is an all-day breakfast place along Shaw Boulevard that serves comfort food and hearty dishes in a cozy and relaxed setting. It's been a while since D and I had breakfast in a restaurant together, so we decided to have an early breakfast date at B&P one Sunday morning.
I was off to a good start with Aerobics (P290)- a cup of steel cut oatmeal, 1/2 cup fresh bananas, and 8 ounces of non-fat fresh milk.
Oh yes, I'm the great pretender..decided to go healthy thinking this order was more than enough to fill me up. Sadly, it didn't. I also found it plain and simple, and something I can make at home for half its price.
My disappointment led me to ordering one of their house specialty- BnP Chick to Chick (P425)
Forget diet as this one is a must-order in B&P. Half chicken simmered in herbs and spices, coated in buttermilk batter then deep fried to perfection. It is served with peppered gravy and sour cream dip and a choice between homemade French Toast or Classic Pancake.
D on the other hand ordered for the Primera Tapa (P280)- premium Angus Beef Tapa, scrambled egg and pickled relish served on a bed of garlic rice.
The Angus beef tapa was tasty and juicy but the garlic rice was a let down during our visit. The rice was dry and hard as if it was leftover from the previous night. Nevertheless, D managed to finish everything in an instant.
Our visit to B&P may have some some hits and misses in terms of food selection, but I exceptionally enjoyed the cozy and relaxing ambiance, warm and accommodating service, and most especially, the company I am with.
