Road Trip: Food at The Clement Monterey

Lots of Eden-friendly food was to be had in Monterey. We started each day with breakfast at the C Restaurant + Bar. While most days we wandered down Cannery Row for lunch and snack options (check back tomorrow), we ate in on Christmas. Food at the Intercontinental Hotel was delicious.

cubes and I had the same breakfast two out of three mornings. cubes favored The Clement Eggs Benedict (top left photo in the collage above), while I favored the Belgian Waffle (bottom left photo in the collage above). On the second morning, I had the Huevos Rancheros de Marisco (top right photo in the collage above). It was a lighter version of the traditional Huevos Rancheros, with Shrimp and Dungeness Crab substituted for pork or beef. The portion was very hearty - I wasn't able to eat all of it. cubes enjoyed his bite of mine so much that he ordered the dish on our last day.

Road Trip: Room Service

On Christmas, the hotel had a modified room service menu. Luckily for me, my favorite entree was available, Pasta with Marinara Sauce. While my choice came from the Children's menu, the portion was enough for an adult. It also came with a fruit salad and juice. Room service was reasonably priced, arrived quickly to the room, and was still steaming. We sampled the desserts for a late evening snack after we returned from dinner at TusCa. cubes had the Panettone Bread Pudding and I had the Apple Tart. They were a sweet ending for a beautiful day.

Bon Apetit!
