Burger King (Telegraph Road)
With the Canadian dollar worth more than the US dollar lately, the border lineups to the states have been crazy. On a previous weekend, we were determined to make it down for some shopping but we didn’t want to spend an hour waiting at Peace Arch so we headed out early… and it worked. We made it through the border in less than 1/2 hour.
Now the only problem is that it was a Sunday morning and nothing was open this early…doh! Well, almost nothing… we decided to get some breakfast before we headed to one of the outlet malls and swung by a Burger King in Bellingham. I still find it strange that the menus are different when you go to a US vs a CAN chain restaurant.
We opted for the BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter (this behemoth weighs in at over 1300 cals) which gets you scrambled eggs, sausage patty, biscuit, pancakes, and hashbrowns.
I liked how Burger King hashbrowns are nugget-sized… perfect for dipping.
We also chose their BK Breakfast Bowl which has eggs, potatoes, peppers, sausage, and cheese all jumbled together in a bowl.
All in all, the food wasn’t bad (and it was cheap compared to the prices in Canada) but it did make me feel like my arteries were clogging.
I think we confused the guy at the counter when we were ordering… must be our thick Canadian accent, eh?
