Cat's Meow

On my Lazy Sunday, I treated myself to lunch at Hungry Cat on Anapamu Street and Chapala, in Santa Barbara. Though the spot prawns sounded divine, I decided on the Crab Benedict. Two very crabby crab cakes topped with crisped Kale, house-smoked bacon, poached eggs, and a lovely light Hollandaise. Wow. At first I thought the portion was quite small, but soon realized the richness of this dish. The perfect bite, with all the ingredients, was amazing. Yes, it's almost cheating pairing bacon and runny egg yolk with other things, but those two ingredients must be high quality for the whole thing to work - and Hungry Cat did it. Boy oh boy, if you are needing to satisfy your craving for something completely savory and satisfying, I highly recommend this dish. Plus some of the best iced tea in town to wash it all down and I was a happy camper. Dare I say, it was purrr-fect?
