Where is Waldoniel? 2013 edition

OK, at least two people asked for it so there we go.


If you do not know where this famous restaurant is, there is a hint after the jump.


There is at least three items in this picture that will tell you which part of the mystery country I am. Note: it is not the Tabasco sauce, I am not in Mexico :)

Bonus points to those who identify the three specific items. But the winner is the one that will name with the appropriate details the specialty of this restaurant (not in the picture, sorry)

    1. No, it is not Benedictine Eggs though they are very close to be. And no, they are not on English muffins. Fret not about the eggs, I do not think anyone will get the name. Heck, I had never known what the "xxx xxxx" eggs where until last Sunday brunch.

    1. Did you knew that? Or you looked through Internet? Looking though Internet is cheating so you do not get full credit.

  6. I don't know that place even though I live near by...hahahaha!! The buildings in the background look slightly like Curacao but of course the bare trees don't.

    1. Your loss. Classic southern tradition and if you ask me one of the better Carolina style bbq. Not pictured :)

    1. Since I do not care for that sauce (though I have it in my kitchen) I never worried much about its origins. Though I am not surprised it is cajun, it is now made in many places, including venezuela.

  8. Daniel, I don't know the place or the name of the eggs.
    I'm guessing those are biscuits with sweet or honey ham, a tomato slice, poached egg, hollandaise, dash of paprika and parsley. On the side: a dark beer -cannot be tea, because of the foam- and tartar sauce?
    Almost a benedict, plus the tomato. If not.. do tell! it looks very good.

    1. Eggs New Bern, a town in North Carolina.

      You got the southern biscuit but there still two southern elements here, not the micro brew beer.

      Let's see if anyone gets them.

  9. Not paprika... CAJUN! Now I'm hungry....

  10. I seem to be blind when it comes to playing Waldo ..hehe..I will tell my son about the bar bque as he also lives very close by to that restaurant and loves bar b que.

    But do I see a sweet tea in the picture?

    A pot of grits?

    Usually North Carolinians use the salty country Ham , rather than the sweet( or city ham) although the pale color in the photo looks like city Ham.

  11. if the restaurant is in the (not-deep) southern US, one of those dishes must have been grits. And since there's a pig feature, probably there's ham hiding under the tomato slices in the restaurant's version of eggs benedict over biscuits.

    p.s. tabasco sauce is made on Avery Island, off the coast of LA.

    1. I would have been a little more generous with the hollandaise sauce. Might have added 3 or 4 stalks of lightly steamed asparagus to fill the plate a little better.

  12. Definitely there's a side dish of grits. O como yo lo llamo: polenta a medio hacer...
