Clarke’s in Evanston offers a great egg white, veggie omelet

Clarke’s is a long-time Evanston stand-by right next to the Northwestern main campus. I went there for many years and enjoyed burgers and other diner food, but since my angioplasty I’ve taken a new look at its menu searching for something that’s relatively low-fat, low-salt and low-sugar.

Clarke's Big and Tasty veggie, egg white omelet. I don't know how many egg whites this took, but it actually fills me up, a good trick these days.,

I’ve enjoyed a giant fresh fruit bowl there as well as the only whole wheat waffle I know of being served on the North Shore these days. True the waffle likely has more salt than I’m supposed to eat, but I miss waffles tremendously, so I splurge on it now and again.

More recently, thought, I’ve tried an egg white, veggie omelet called the big and healthy and fallen hard for it. It contains carrots and broccoli, no cheese which would muck it up, salt and fat-wise. Also no cauliflower, which I dislike but which seems to pop up in omelets at restaurants for some unknown reason. The thing also is massive, served with a side of fresh fruit, it actually fills me up, something most dishes don’t do these days.

Clarke’s has a place on Belmont in Chicago too, just down from the Belmont L stop, and it too sells the big and healthy. The Belmont location is pretty run down, likely from high use. The Evanston place was redecorated in the recent past, even to the point of having TVs in the booths in the back room, so I prefer eating there. It’s also closer to home.

Thanks Clarke’s. Now how about having a website, I’ve searched and can’t find one for you.
