Meet Captain Mac Nut, Your Cap’n Crunch and Macadamia Nut-Crusted French Toast Mouthgasm
The first time someone in the office read off the menu from Stacks Pancake House in Dana Point, Calif. — which includes, among other things, Nutella S’mores French Toast, Oreo Cookies N’ Cream Belgium Waffles and Kalua Pork Eggs Benedict — my first response was, “Why in the hell haven’t we covered this yet?”
And here we are.
I eventually settled on the Captain Mac Nut, chosen partially for the macadamias, chosen mostly for the name (still can’t say it out loud without snickering). Pictured above and below, this buttery, crunchy, decadently fried marvel comes either “plain” and topped with strawberries, or “peanut buttery” with optional bananas — as well as, of course, its nominal C-Crunch and mac nut pieces as coating, for an orgy of island-inspired breakfast foods in your mouth.
