Kalamata Potatoes

Avanti Cafe in Newport Beach is a whole in a wall gourmet vegetarian restaurant. Although I've said it before, I must repeat it again, I love this place.
Crystal and I were hanging out this weekend and I suggested we try Avanti's breakfast menu- neither of us had it before.
That days special was south-western crepes with KALAMATA POTATOES. I don't know why I haven't thought of placing these salty gems with a starch before but one bite and I was sold on the idea. The crepes were wonderful as well but neither of us could get enough of the potatoes.
I prefer my potatoes salty as can be anyways and this way, I feel less guilty about it for some strange reason. :)
You can bet I'll be attempting a home-made version of these at home

That does sound intriguingly delicious!

Yum! I have never had the combo, but it sounds delicious!

mmm.. those potatoes look so good! I was wondering if you'd be interested in being part of a testgroup to try 4 new PROBAR flavors. E-mail me at probarfeedback [at] Gmail [dot] com. Thanks
