New Favorite Restaurant

OK not quite, but Bob Evans is pretty good, and tonight I had a meal there which was really amazing: pot roast hash.

This is hash browns, topped with pot roast, and then topped with eggs (cooked to order, i.e. overlight) and cheddar cheese.  As I read the description, I was thinking, "Wow, this sounds really good" until I got to the eggs.  Then I thought, "Eggs?  Hmmm..." 

Nonetheless, I pressed on with my order, eggs and all.  And it turned out to be delicious.  Of course steak & eggs is a very common breakfast dish, but I’ve never gotten that, and pot roast isn’t quite the same as steak.  So it seemed like an unlikely combination of foods at first.  But they went together delectably, and I loved every bite.

I’ll probably be getting this almost every time we go to Bob Evans from now on.

Mmm.  Bob Evans.  I just discovered that place last year and I love it too.  I haven’t tried the pot roast with eggs thing, but I love the roast turkey platter with mashed potatoes.  I don’t know why they don’t have Bob Evans in eastern PA, but I had no idea of its existence until I moved to Maryland.

Isn’t that a Bob Evans off the Oaks exit of Rt. 422 east from Pottstown to K of P?  I pass it each time on my way to ’Tarjeh’ yet I’m still not sure.

I love Bob Evans. Went to a couple of them out in Ohio years ago, then was delighted when one came to Westboro, MA a few years back. Sadly, they have since closed, so I don’t think I’ll be seeing a Bob Evans in my future unless I go on another trip to the Midwest...
