If you find yourself in Roscoe, a suburb north of Chicago, you MUST go to Orange. The breakfast was amazing!
We started off the meal with Frushi – this is sushi made only of fruit and rice. Apples were Julienne sliced like cucumbers would be in the center of a real fish sushi roll. Slices of watermelon like tuna sashimi. The dipping sauces were blended fruit concoctions. So beautiful! Didn’t want to eat! But that didn’t stop us!
I ordered a custom-made fruit juice. Order slips on the table where you choose from a long list of options what you want in your fruit juice. I did cucumber, carrot, peach and mango. The flavors revealed themselves in my mouth one-by-one. Wow. A little pricey, but worth the experience to have the juice.
My host, Terri had the Chai French Toast. Even though I don’t drink Chai tea, I had to try a little bite. Ohhh man. An explosion of sweetness with the earthy-ness of tea. She swears by that dish and gets every time she goes to Orange.
My corned beef and potato hash had an assortment of spices that I couldn’t quite make out, but it was delicious! Egg made to order on top – of course I ordered it fried because can’t stand the running yolk. An interesting side of green salad with balsamic dressing made the dish more like lunch or dinner, but I found it refreshing.
I can’t thank Terri enough for taking me to Orange. I think I’ll be telling a lot of people about this little gem in Roscoe. Seriously, go. You will be so happy you did.
