I just have to say, that sometimes it isn’t always easy to eat out and find keto friendly menu items. So many restaurants use sugar in their recipes or soybean oil for cooking. No thank you. However, there are those times where you find a gem of a place that blows your socks off.
A co-worker and I decided to go out to breakfast. I didn’t want to eat at the the usual place, so I went on the Google hunt for best breakfast places in Natomas. Several options came up. My co-worker doesn’t eat keto food but is a little picky. We looked at the breakfast menu for Bella Bru. The menu wasn’t extensive but appeared to have some nice options. My co-worker was cautiously optimistic when he saw chorizo breakfast burrito. Bell Bru had me at crab omelet.
We arrive and there was hardly anyone there for 8:30am. We were seated immediately and asked what we would like drink. I wanted coffee and to my surprise, they have heavy cream. Yes, heavy cream. You can have that on keto. My coffee came in a huge mug, piping hot and deliciously bold in flavor. This was no diner coffee. We ordered exactly what caught our eye on the menu. Me, the crab omelet, no potatoes or toast, side of sliced tomatoes and bacon. Keto rocks people! My co-worker ordered the chorizo breakfast burrito. Service was great. The atmosphere was pleasant and clean. So far so good.
Our meals arrived and they looked amazing. The burrito is stuffed thick with chorizo and light on the potatoes. It came with a side of fresh salsa and guacamole. It’s hard to find a breakfast burrito that has more meat than filling. My co-worker was in 7th heaven. Even full to the gills, he kept eating.
My omelet was the same, jammed packed with fresh crab. It had melted Fontina cheese, spinach, onions and a tomato relish. Oh my Gosh!! It was so fantastic. The eggs were fluffy and not overcooked. The cheese was balanced and perfectly melted. That tomato relish was divine. My only complaint would be that there wasn’t enough of that relish. I couldn’t be more pleased. It was a wonderful dining experience.
My hat’s off to the wait staff and chefs of Bella Bru. I will be back. You can count on it.
Hey, if you’ve eaten at Bella Bru or have insights to my post, please send me your comments.
