Breakfast at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Disneyland

Mmmmm breakfast…one of my favorite meals of the day! I particularly love when you can find different and unusual breakfast options. So when I first saw the menu at Flo’s V8 Cafe, I knew I had to have breakfast there when I went out to the west coast for the Disneyland Half Marathon!
Nestled in the back of Carsland and overlooking the amazing Radiator Springs Racers, Flo’s V8 Cafe is like stepping back in time. Back to the neon and nostalgia of the 1950s…it’s SO FUN!
I went in knowing what I was going to order. Ever since the restaurant opened in June 2012, I knew what I was going to order…Chicken Tamale Breakfast please! This is a chicken tamale with scrambled eggs, salsa verde and pico de gallo. Right up my alley! The only problem with that dish is that I can’t eat eggs..sigh.
Oh well that was no problem! They took the eggs out and let me substitute for a side. WIN! Obviously I went with the amazing hash browns for my side…I mean, how could you not get that for your side?!?
As I was waiting my special order, I noticed the fun beers they had on tap for the later crowd. Now I don’t like IPAs, but the Racer 5 IPA looks intriguing enough for me to try!
We waited a few extra minutes and got our meals…oh man!
The chicken tamale (sans eggs) with a side of potatoes was beyond amazing! Honestly, I still dream about this dish…
B went with the more traditional breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns and a biscuit. Oh man was that biscuit good!!
We grabbed a booth overlooking Radiator Springs Racers and went to town on this meal!
I have to say, even without the eggs, this is a meal I crave to this day! That salsa verde is SO GOOD!! Wait…did I already say that?! 😉
As a Walt Disney World regular, I can’t help but be sad that this is not an option over here. That “California cuisine” needs to make it’s way east because it’s amazing!!
