Brunch, as you can probably tell by now is my favourite meal of the day. Unfortunately most restaurants only offer their brunch menu during weekends – meaning that I have to jam pack my weekends with different brunch spots. Fortunately, that is probably a good thing or at least for my waist line (lol). Last weekend, my friend Wendy (Blog: WendiEats / Instagram: @WendiEats) and I trekked over to Ossington to check out Té (Instagram: @Te_Toronto / Facebook: Té) – a newly Korean-Taiwanese Fusion restaurant.
Table Service Pour Over Coffee ($5.00)
Bulgogi Burger ($18.00)
- Thin slices of soy-marinated beef sirloin piled high on a toasted sesame seed bun, topped with a runny egg, crispy onion and a drizzle of wasabi mayo
- Served with choice of french fries or mixed greens. Add $2.00 for sweet potato fries with wasabi mayo or srircacha mayo
- This was one of my favourite brunch items – the thin slices beef sirloin was marinated perfectly. All of the components complimented each other very well – all held together on a toasted fluffy bun.
Kimchi and Pork Belly Eggs Benedict ($16.00)
- toasted English muffin layered with pan-fried kimchi, crispy thick-cut pork belly, poached eggs bathed in house-made kimchi-spiked hollandaise sauce + choice of hashbrowns or mixed greens
- I think my friend enjoyed this dish more than I did but it all comes down to personal preference. I think I could have done with slightly less kimchi spiked hollandaise sauce and preferred my eggs to be a bit more runny and messy.
Dark Spiced Taiwanese Fried Chicken and Egg Waffle ($19.00)
- Asian twist on a comfort food classic:
- Chicken thigh & drumstick marinated in traditional Taiwanese spices, on top of a Hong Kong-style eggette waffle, served with pure Quebec maple syrup
- I highly recommend the Taiwanese Fried Chicken and Egg Waffle. The chicken is fried to a crispy dark brown whilst cooked perfectly on the inside- very juicy and tender. To top if off, the fluffy egg waffle & maple syrup paired perfectly with the Taiwanese spiced chicken.
Who doesn’t love a good old fried chicken & waffles? Té’s take on this classic brunch dish with a twist is worth a try =)
