Sunday Brunch


This past Saturday night my husband and I did something that we rarely do-we ordered Chinese food from Kai Ping on our corner and got a couple of episodes viewed of our “Lost” collection.  As Daughter #2 headed out the door-her message was a plea: “Order lots and please save me some”.  First mistake: we only ordered 3 dishes and second: since we had not eaten a meal since breakfast and the food was delicious and piping hot, there was only one measly portion or curried vermicelli noodles left over.  We often discuss what we are going to cook up for Sunday brunch on our way home from church and it was abundantly clear that Daughter #2 had her heart set on Chinese food leftovers.  My husband and I are consistent in our displays of affection with food-so he leapt into action.


In minutes we were sitting down to honey garlic veal and what little was left from the night before.  Daughter #2 was thrilled with the effort and thinks her Daddy is the greatest-and he is.


He tossed veal scallops in flour and shallow fried them in oil in the wok.  Next he mixed sauteed garlic, honey, water and soya together to a slow boil and then added cornstarch to thicken.  The portions are really to taste-some liking saltier, sweeter, garlickier…..IMG_0479

Perhaps you were thinking I was going to list some of our favourite Sunday breakfast/brunch spots.  Well not to disappoint, they are: The Falefel House, The Garwood Grill or any of the Original Pancake House locations and for those very special occasions The Hotel Fort Garry!  Please leave a comment indicating your fav place for Sunday breakfast/brunch.

    Cora’s! Their specialty Eggs Benny’s are my favorite. I love anywhere that does a great Eggs Benny. The Falafel House and The Pancake House’s apple pancake are also HIGH on my list. Fortunately I know people that make my favorite breakfasts at home!

    I hear that Buccacino’s has a good Sunday brunch but I have yet to try it.

    I used to love Tavern’s Sunday brunch. I think it was the best in the city.

    I’m stuck in a rut but pretty much every week you will find me at Pembina Village Restaurant for brunch.

    Just heard from a coworker that the French Way on Academy is fantastic for Brunch.

    We have been trying to get there. We used to walk there for coffee and pastries sometimes when it was the German bakery.
