Kountry Kitchen

This week we had a delicious post-Christmas breakfast at Kountry Kitchen! A Ramona institution since 1939, this place has such a warm, traditional family feel that is obvious the moment you walk in the door. The breakfast menu here has tremendous breadth; I’m sure there’s something that would please anyone. I zeroed in on the two-egg breakfasts. There’s a nice selection of hearty protein options that go-with such as bacon; jumbo links; patty sausage; ham steak; pork chops; beef patty; etc. I ordered it with corned beef hash! Includes hashbrowns and hot biscuit or toast, $12.25.

My sunny side eggs were fresh and very good with big, beautiful yolks. There was a small amount of loose whites, unfortunately. The hashbrowns here are outstanding! Perfectly hot and crispy. I appreciate that KK serves hashbrowns as there are a few other places in town that do not. Now the corned beef hash… I hate to say it, but it tasted like it was from a can. The texture seemed mechanically processed and the flavor did not resemble a traditional salty corned beef. It was a decent enough crispy hot hash, just not among the best I’ve had.

We really feel “at home” at Kountry Kitchen. Love this restaurant! Service was excellent. In fact, our server took multiple orders from more than one table and did not write down a thing! That always worries me, but everything came out perfect, as requested.

Keedy’s Fountain & Grill

Outstanding country fried steak at Keedy’s Fountain Grill!  Founded in 1957, Keedy’s is an unassuming, old school diner in Palm Desert.  Definitely a gem in the Coachella Valley, I can’t wait to go back!
