Breakfast is my most favorite meal of the day. I love the smell of scrambled eggs, bacon and butter in the morning. But because of my indefinite schedule, I don’t get to eat breakfast anymore and would prefer to have brunch instead. The good thing about brunching is that you can still have the breakfast favorites even though it’s after the breakfast hour (usually until 8 am).
Bobby Chinn, Discovery Travel and Living’s World Cafe star, was able to enlighten me and other members of media about brunching at the event organized by Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf 2 weeks ago. It was one of the earliest events that I’ve ever attended but since it’s Bobby Chinn, what the heck, I’ll wake up early for him. How often would you get to see and hear Bobby Chinn in flesh? Anyway, he candidly talked about brunching and how it can be interesting for us.One thing I never knew about Bobby Chinn is that he was a stand-up comedian. He was so perky that morning and I can’t believe I was listening to a stand-up comedy at 11:00 am on a Saturday.

Moving forward, not everybody knows that Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf offers brunch meals to its customers. I usually neglect this but upon tasting the Salmon Scramble during the event, I didn’t realize that it was good. When you order a brunch meal (Brek O’Day, Salmon Scramble or Eggs Ben), it already comes with a free cup of brewed coffee or tea. The good thing also about their breakfast selections is that it’s available all day long so if you’re craving to have eggs for dinner, that’s fine. 🙂 It’s just too bad that CBTL only has a few brnch selections in their menu. I hope that they add some more items in the menu to choose from.
