Enjoying Souffles and “Green Eggs and Ham” at Lauderdale

Let me just start off by saying, Lauderdale serves a version of Doctor Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham named ‘Mama’s Garden Omelette’ and I am nearly positive this delicious gruyere-filled dish is why Sam-I-Am loves Green Eggs and Ham so much! (If you have fond memories of Dr. Seuss like I do, then you’d probably understand why the prospect of having green eggs is so extremely exciting.) Lauderdale, located next to Roppongi Hills on Keyakizaka-dori, has been a hot spot for both foreigners and locals since its opening in 2009. With servers fluent in both Japanese and English, Lauderdale is a great breakfast option for families and expats working in the Roppongi area (and if you have pets, they’re allowed on the terrace seatings!) Serving a mix of French bistro-fare with international influences, its notable menu items include Hot-Out-Of-Oven Souffles, Buttermilk Pancakes, and a variety of French-Styled Omelettes. Sam, my Tokyo brunching buddy, and I heard that grabbing a seat on the terrace is virtually impossible on weekends so we opted for a quieter weekday breakfast instead.
