Rosie’s Restaurant in downtown Escondido, Ca. was recently featured on Restaurant Rescue on the Food Network. Robert Irvine the British chef comes in and helps struggling owners and chefs improve their cooking and spends $10,000.00 fixing the place up. Before it was Rosie’s it was Champions Diner. It’s next door to my barber and I’ve been going to both of them for over 30 years. That may change. Once a week I like to go out for breakfast and have Eggs Benedict. Before Rosie’s was made over they had this chef that turned out the best eggs Benedict I’ve ever had. The eggs were poached soft and the hollandaise sauce was perfect and the home fries wonderful. The show was filmed about three months ago and since then they can’t get their eggs Benedict even close to what it was before. The chef that used to work there is gone and whoever the chef of the day is now has no clue on how to poach eggs. I like the eggs poached soft so they’re still runny, it just adds to the Benedict. Today the waitress sets my order down in front of me and I could tell right away that the eggs were poached hard and told her so. She didn’t believe me so I cut into them and sure enough hard poached eggs. Well in the past when I complained about the eggs she’d go get a couple of more eggs poached correctly and I’d add them to the Benedict, today she didn’t even offer but she did give me %50 off my bill. I’ve tried the eggs Benedict at other restaurants around the area and they can’t poach eggs either. IMHO, this place was better before it was “rescued”. It still has the tables that rock, new chairs that are to low and cooks that can’t poach eggs.
