Recent eats: Breakfast burritos, biscuits & gravy, and... mayo packets?

On recent visits to Fuzzy's Taco Shop I opted out of breakfast fare and tried a burrito with ground beef, left, that was a little wan on flavor. I also revisited the 'Latin-fried' potatoes, center, this time in a burrito with egg, cheese, and chorizo. Still not a fan. Right, Simply Heinz mayonnaise is revolting! I've had several packets and they all have an overbearing mustard flavor. Plain Heinz like you see in the massive squirt jugs at the Iowa State Fair doesn't taste like this.

Biscuits and gravy smothered hash browns topped with eggs at PerKup Cafe in West Des Moines, left. Sadly this is not the same dish that I raved over in 2012 at PerKup's original location in Urbandale, right.

A few initial chunky pieces of sausage in the gravy soon gave way to smaller bits. Hash browns were fairly standard for the frozen variety. Biscuits were fine, more comparable to Home Plate Diner and Cozy Cafe than Malo or Local Yocals farmHouse. PerKup did impress us that morning with blistering fast service and personable staff.
