OMELET HOUSE Redux

We don’t know whether the Omelet House was founded in 1978 or 1979 (there seems to be some confusion on the point).

Other things we don’t know:

> How a perfectly formed omelet can look puffy and taste tough.*

> Why our swiss cheese omelet was none too cheesy.

> How the home fries can be crispy and light one time (almost potato chip-like), and greasy, thick and soggy the next.

> Why the banana bread here is really a large, square slab of cake (and a quite tasty one at that).

> How the kitchen here can turn out our town’s best corned beef hash, and make it look like an unsightly mess on the plate.

> Why anyone would order a grilled chicken salad at a place called the Omelet House (as our recent dining companion did).

> Whether the Isaacson-Tarbell Postulate** is truly the best predictor of the corporeal outcomes relating to the laws of particle physics collisions of this sort.

* Answer: Use of those half-moon shaped omelet pans, and baking powder in the egg mix.

** The Isaacson-Tarbell Postulate, as postulated by Tuesday Morning Quarterback, posits that in all NFL football contests, there is a much greater probability than not, that, on any given Sunday, the home team will win. So far, the empirical data have borne this out to be both true, and take-it-to-the-bank-able.

  • Are you sure about that hash? I’ve had some of the best *anywhere* at the Four Seasons’ Verandah.

  • I’m glad you at least recognized the tastiness of their banana bread

  • uuuuuhhhhhhhhhh really????? four seasons ——- omelet house

    how can a sane person compare the two, they are not the same level

  • clue-

    Correct. They’re clearly not. However, there’s probably a good possibility the hash is quite good and better than the usual stuff offered at that price point. That’s why I still want to give them a fair shot when I visit either their Henderson location or the one at The Plaza Downtown.

  • That’s the first thing “has a clue” has said that ELV agrees with! ;-}

  • oh come on JC not everything I say is negative. i have agreed with you on some other things

    atdleft—– i do beleive they were comparing the two, saying the hash is better at the verandah!!! but I am the first person to relate the quality of the food to the price of which I am paying, perceived vaule is key!!

  • I had to laugh at “Omelette House Redux.” Yes, the ‘nananut bread is delicious. As for the Isaacson-Tarbell Postulate, it has revolutionized my betting results at the sports books. BTW, last time I was at the Omelette House (off Rancho), I happened to be needing something for a “peace offering” to my wife, Loretta. Eureka! I saw just the thing in a display case: a cookie jar in the form of a bust of her idol, John Wayne.

    Although off-topic, here’s a food story from my distant past. By the time I was a high school senior, I imagined myself to be a young sophisticate. Anxious to impress a rather hot date, I took her to a fancy Dallas restaurant, where I confidently ordered steak tartare for myself. I knowingly advised my date that it was considered a delicacy in Europe (the totality of my expertise on the subject). Little did I know that steak tartare was the tatars’ version of sushimi. I couldn’t touch the meat, but the egg did end up on my face.

  • I eat breakfast at The Verandah once a week. Only place in town that can cook scrambled eggs perfectly: the curd to custard ratio is always flawless. However, their Buttermilk pancakes are my favorite anywhere.

  • It’s easy to create your ain healthy and downy homemade Denny’s pancakes with this easy-to-follow Denny’s flapcake recipe with healthy ingredients, such as Graham and Canola, served with a dollop of cream cheese and stark maple syrup or beloved , or create your ain healthy flannel cake toppings.
