Below is my review of Du-par's at Golden Gate. I stopped by last weekend to (FINALLY!!!) see what all the buzz is about. Read what I have to say, then stop over there and judge for yourself.
Now I know where to go when I need me some breakfast and happen to be Downtown. Tucked in a corner at Golden Gate, the oldest casino still open in this town, is Las Vegas' first Du-Par's, which for decades has been a legend of LA's Farmers' Market.
A friend and I stopped by last weekend to try it out. And since it looked interesting on the menu, I decided to try the spinach & jack (cheese) omelette. The egg itself was cooked quite well, quite fluffy. The spinach tasted fresh, though the cheese didn't seem all that special. All in all, I was fine with it.
The omelette came with hash browns, and those were fried to just the right crisp.
And finally, there was the blueberry muffin. It was HUGE, and it was fluffy and buttery and sweet all on its own (though it helped to have good quality butter alongside), and even had an interesting orange marmalade glaze on top. If there's one issue I had with the muffin, it was that there weren't enough blueberries for me.
Still, all in all, I was satisfied with my breakfast at Du-Par's and hope to go again soon. Next time, I'll probably head directly to the buttermilk pancakes it is better known for.
