I’m telling you, if you are living in or visiting the Los Angeles area, you have to go to this restaurant!  It’s a must!  My husband and I visited Hugo’s a while back, and it is now by far one of our favorite restaurants.  Read about our first visit here.  We would go more often but it’s about a 50 minute drive from us.  We were able to make it back together a few months ago, after an exciting doctors appointment we went to together.  Our fertility doctor is about 30 miles from us (closer to Hugo’s!)  If any of you are familiar with infertility treatment and doctors appointments you will know that about 50% of them are depressing and the other 50% are exciting and leave you hopeful.  This was an exciting leave us hopeful visit.  Our treat after our doctor’s appointment was Hugo’s!  It was like when you were little and you would get a sticker and a sucker after your dentist appointment, but better!

 

I mentioned in my first post about Hugo’s how indecisive I was on what to order.  I ordered the Almond Energy Pancakes, which were fantastic.  I would eat them everyday if I could.  I talked about how next time I would want to try the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast but I loved the pancakes so much it would be a hard decision!  Well, sure enough it was!  My waitress came up with a solution for me.  She suggested ordering half an order of Cinnamon Swirl French Toast and half an order of Almond Energy Pancakes.  Genius!  That’s exactly what I did!  I’m so glad they have patient waitresses that know how to deal with indecisive customers.  They would have to for how wonderful everything sounds on their menu!  So, I liked the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast, but I didn’t LOVE them.  The flavor was good, but I wasn’t a fan of the texture.  I’m so glad that I ordered them though, because now I know.  I can never cheat on my Almond Energy Pancakes again.

My husband ordered the Eggs Benedict on an English muffin with some fruit on the side, and had some of my french toast and pancakes.  As much as I would have loved to finish every bite for how tasty they were, by body would have been mad at me after.
