Franze & Evans Delecatessen, London

Went to Franze & Evans on Redchurch Street, near Brick Lane in East London with the dangerously delightful Danielle. She decided to go with this slight variation of Eggs Benedict made with organic eggs, on brioche with a hollandaise sauce and bacon on the side. Here's how she judged it:

GOOD: Eggs are nice and runny although I'm slightly scared of the extreme redness of the organic yolk! Hollandaise tastes ok too.

BAD: Bacon is way too fatty. Not enough Hollandaise and not at all runny, looks like grilled cheese. Brioche is a disaster combination, it's all soggy from the eggs and has none of the crispy and full texture of an English muffin.

Overall: 4/10 Not a satisfactory version at all, best to stick with the original.

Had Eggs benedict at the Vatican City, with Pope Benedict XVI.
YES: The Pope is my homeboy. He's doing Lent at the moment, but took time out on Sunday to join me for Eggs Benedict. Did you know the pope invented Eggs Benedict? He Did! He's the grand master of it. This is the best eggs Benedict ever. Holandaise rich and creamy, slightly sour. One perfect egg, from the blessed womb of the first Dove. Melted in the mouth. Floury, blessed holy muffin and grilled bacon from a suckling (Holy) pig. The quest is over. On the seventh day, Pope Benedict created this.
NO: Bono only turned up and spoiled my morning. Fuck off U2, you bag of dicks.
Overall the best eggs benedict known to all of humanity. Amen. 10/10.
