Good Morning Gators!

Yes I’ve reviewed them before. this review is going to be short and sweet. This is day 5 in the new Southern Belle location. The Carpentersville area was definitely in need of a new breakfast spot. I was very happy to see them open.

Southern Belles opens at 6am 7 days a week!

OK let’s get going.

Our excellent server Brookney brought water, Coffee, and menus. The menu was big but not crazy big. You know how I feel about big menus. There were enough choices to please the adventurous and non adventurous alike. The Coffee was in a carafe   9   the Coffee itself was decent   7   The music was a contemporaryish mix   7

First Up

Pork Belly & Eggs

Pork Belly, (2) Eggs Any Style, Served with Hash Browns or Grits, Includes Choice of Toast or (2) Buttermilk Pancakes

This is a dish that is definitely the sum of its parts. I usually dismantle  the dish and judge each element before I decide if I like it. As it turns out this one is best served as intended. The crispy porky Pork Belly with the grit cake and poached egg was delicious.   8

Second and Last up

Corned Beef Hash

House-Made Corn Beef Hash (Shredded Corned Beef, Onion, Green Pepper & Potato), (2) Eggs Any Style, Served with Hash Browns or Grits, Includes Choice of Toast or (2) Buttermilk Pancakes

House Made Corned Beef Hash is always risky. A good portion of your audience is expecting canned Corned Beef Hash and is not going to be happy with the attempt at the real deal. I of course ordered my eggs Sunny Side up for testing purposes. The Corned Beef was pretty tasty. It was seasoned well and the charred veggies were a good counterpoint to the beef. The eggs were a tad under for me but it takes an egg master to pull it off. Overall a good representation of a classic.   7/8
