Benny’s Eggs — English muffin with baby spinach, two poached eggs, lachs, and hollandaise sauce.

You know when you go into something with expectations and at the same time, expect to be disappointed?

That happens all the time.

But what about that one time when it was exactly as you thought it would be–and better? And as soon as you’re done devouring every inch of it, you want to tell all your closest friends about the movie moment you just experienced.

This just happened to me, and now I want to tell the world.

First, I heard about Benny’s eggs and expected the denseness of the hollandaise to overpower the beauty of a poached egg. But, as soon as it was in front of me, I had to quickly readjust all of my expectations. It looked so fresh.

Second, I expected the eggs to be too runny…most eggs in the past were that way, but no. I pulled apart the outer layer to reveal a perfectly toned yolk.

The first bite of rustic English muffin, lean salmon, juicy egg, tender avocado, with a touch of dill.

I almost didn’t want to let the fork part from my lips in hopes of preserving the intense lust. On a bed of salad, sprinkled with a little salt and pepper.

My only regret is that we didn’t meet sooner.
