Ok, so back to Byblos..the Iranian restaurant. So even though I might be the one who loves to try new things, my friend, Jack, not so much. Jack is the "Deux oeufs, bacon" type of guy. He loves his General Tao chicken and his spaghetti bolognaise. He loves his steak and fries, and too much outside the box isn't his cup of tea. So, of course I was a little worried to bring him to a place like this. When we walked in, the decor was quite cool, the ambiance was fun, mostly everyone was young, hipster type, plateau residents mostly. We sat at a nice table close to a window. I must say, the service isn't A-1. It took forever for a waitress to come see us. I ordered an Iranian Tea to drink and Jack ordered a cafe au lait in quite the bowl.

For breakfast, the menu doesn't present many options, but I had read that their Combo #4 Omelette with Feta ($9.50) that comes with bread and jam was quite good. So we both ordered that! After eating most of the bread they left for us because we were starving, it arrived. It looked like hummos. Eggs, feta, dill, spices and some scallions. I was like: OMG. We ordered Iranian hummos. To my surprise, this Iranian Hummos, was actually delicious! You eat it with your bread and it tastes very yummy! And to my surprise, Jack, loved it too! But he did mention how "Grano" this place was. Oh Jack.

STEP 2. Le Reservoir! which I looked up, it's actually a brasserie. See menu here. Also, very outside the box type brunch, no "Deux Oeufs, Bacon" here, let's see who I can convince to come with me...
