After a meal at Voula's Offshore Cafe (see post 2011-12-10 Lunch @ Voula's Offshore Cafe), we made our way to Serious Biscuit. Wasn't I full already? I probably was, but I really wanted to try Serious Biscuit. After all, we tried Pine State Biscuits only weeks before (see post 2011-11-25 Breakfast @ Pine State Biscuits), so we needed a comparison.
I had "the Zach", which was similar to the "Reggie Deluxe" from Pine State Biscuits, with the exception of cheese. Starting with the biscuit, because these were pre-baked then re-baked to order, there's a nice crisp crust on top. The biscuit was not as heavy as the one at Pine State Biscuits. The black pepper gravy was good in its own right in comparison with Pine State Biscuits. The bacon, nothing spectacular, just good. The egg had already burst and leaked onto the plate, I wasn't too impressed, but at least it was runny. Finally, the chicken, although still moist, it was borderline dry. On top of that, the breading on the chicken was so overcooked that it tasted bitter. Anyhow, despite the bitter chicken, I still enjoyed this more than Pine State Biscuits.Buddha Girl ordered a biscuit with Fennel Sausage, Egg, Pepper Relish and Fontina Cheese. Everything to this tasted good, with one exception, the fennel sausage, which had a texture of a meat patty versus a plump, juicy sausage. While Buddha Girl enjoyed the chicken and the apple butter at Pine State Biscuits, she did not quite enjoy the biscuit. At Serious Biscuit, it's quite the opposite. Buddha Girl, enjoyed the biscuit but everything else was nothing spectacular.
So did I finish "the Zach" after a large plate of Pinata Benedict? Absolutely. Was I full? Yup, about time too. Buddha Girl only managed half of the biscuit and saved the rest for later...weak.
We enjoyed our visit here and do plan to visit again. I just hope that the chicken won''t be overcooked on our next visit.
