Saturday mornings at Brassaii

There are endless amount of restaurants in Toronto serving up their take on brunch and I’ve made it my mission to  to slowly hit them up (lol this will probably take me years) But seriously, I love brunch! For some reason, when I incorporate brunch into my weekend schedule, the rest of my day turns out to be really productive – I hit the gym, I end up moving my whole work station to a coffee shop and grind away for the rest of the day.

Anyways, last Saturday morning I had one of those productive days and that started off with brunch at Brassaii. Located in the heart of King West, Brassaii is a restaurant and lounge that offers guests a Mediterranean inspired menu. Their venue contains an exposed wine cellar and classy dining lounge that is suitable for a night out or even private events.

Fried Chicken and Avocado ($22.00)

    • Gluten-free fried chicken, sourdough bread, avocado, sweet dijon
    • The sweet dijon sauce paired perfectly with the fried chicken. Although the skin of the chicken was a little dry for my liking, the chicken itself was really moist and sat really well on a delicious avocado toast


Omelette Provencale ($17.00)

  • Three egg omelette, pepperade, goat cheese, fresh herbs, salad
  • The omelette was one of my favourites – very fluffy and delicate.

DSC_0641Steak and Eggs ($27.00)

  • Flat Iron Steak, scrambled eggs, hollandaise, rosti potato
  • A soft and runny scrambled egg cooked on a medium rare flat iron steak.



Lobster Croque Monsieur ($23.00)

  • House Salad, bechamel, swiss cheese
  • heaps of lobster chunks inside and outside of the croque monsieur. I would definitely order this again.


Apple Crumble ($8.00)

  • with house-made vanilla ice cream
  • I’m not usually one for apple crumble but my boyfriend and friend couldn’t stop raving about this dessert


Vanilla Creme Brulee ($8.00)

  • with seasonal berries
  • one of my favourite creme brulees. It’s not your average hard custard layer on the top (which I actually prefer). The custard was creamy and sweet.


Mousse au Chocolat ($8.00)

  • with seasonal berries
  • The mousse was very decadent and soft.
