A few weekends ago we went for brunch at #16 on BlogTO’s brunch list, buy cialis Barque. We arrived before the doors opened at 10 am and were quickly seated at a roomy, medicine high table for 4; this was a much better brunch experience then our first failed attempt to eat here.
We had wanted to start off with an herbed cheddar biscuit each, but unfortunately, the biscuits were not ready yet. We would have to enjoy the biscuits after our meals would come. I had no problem with this because it meant we got to enjoy our biscuits fresh and piping from the oven. However, if you are a smokehouse/Southern- style restaurant that serves brunch, people are going to want biscuits and these should be ready before your doors open.
The biscuits, when they did come, were delicious and I highly recommend them to everyone. It was buttery, and flaky but still dense. It had perfect dots of herbs and cheddar throughout. The butter was a thing onto itself: it was sweet but savoury and had citrus flavours to it. I would like to spread this butter onto everything I eat.
GC ordered the Fried Chicken Thigh sandwich, and I ordered the Barque Benedict.
This eggs Benedict was ridiculous and incredible. Instead of a traditional base of an English muffin, the eggs sat on a firm, moist bed of cornbread. I have never been one for cornbread, finding the texture too gritty, but this was not your average cornbread. It was smooth, moist and dense. The eggs were poached with oozing, runny centers and had a slight vinegar taste to them, the way good poached eggs should taste. The hollandaise sauce was lemony but had hints of sweetness from barbeque sauce, bringing this hollandaise to an unparalleled level. This is easily one of the best and most unique Benedicts I have ever had.
GC liked his sandwich, but wasn’t as in awe as I was with my breakfast. He said the chicken was a little too crispy, being burnt in some parts but was still good.
Another Sunday, another brunch, another restaurant off the list.
