After a long period, patios are starting to reopen in Toronto, now that the pandemic seems to be under control. And not only us, but the whole city was super excited to get back to brunches because it’s not easy to book our favorite places, or places that were on our wish list.
We got a reservation at Té a day before, but we took the last available slot, at 1:15 pm, for brunch. The first impression wasn’t the best because, besides having to sit directly in the sun (our table didn’t have an umbrella!!!) we waited more than fifty minutes for our food! We try to emphasize that, as it is the return after a long period, restaurants are still adapting to the new reality.
The food made us excuse the restaurant because it was so worth it. Both Cris and I ordered the same: Kimchi Crab Cake Eggs Benedict ($18), a very Korean version of the traditional eggs Benedict. It’s served with crab cakes over English muffins, poached egg and hollandaise sauce. To go with it, French fries with a kimchi seasoning that makes the dish perfectly sweet and sour. If you want, you can substitute salad for potatoes, but I think you would miss one of the highlights of the dish.
I hope they manage to get it right soon because the food they serve deserves a memorable experience to match.
