Badass beef brisket brunch burger @ Baro

Now, I don’t always eat brunch, but when I do, you’d better believe there’s beef brisket involved! So, we’re hanging out at Baro, this funky Latin joint on King West. Last year, we went here for some legit lomo saltado, so I know they know their beef. And when I saw the brisket sangwich on the brunch menu, I knew that it was heading straight down my piehole, son!!!

OK, now let’s break it down. You’ve got a whole buncha pulled brisket on a potato bun, swimming in a tangy guava BBQ sauce, with a fried egg on top — don’t break the yoke, bro!!! Then you’ve got dill pickles, shredded lettuce and a side of home fries. Dude, my freestyle rap duo was called side of home fries!!! And then to wash it all down, we’ve got this classic Colombian cocktail called a refajo:

What you’ve got here is light beer, mixed with Colombiana cream soda, and a bit of mango, garnished with an orange wedge. Now, I wasn’t that big on IC Light Mango, but this summer shandy from south of the border is pretty darn refreshing!!!

Breakfast of Champions @ The Wickson Social

Now, I don’t always get up in time for breakfast, but when I do, it’s gotta be legit. So we’re hanging out at The Wickson Social, this funky little joint just offa Yonge Street, where they’ve got some wicked awesome brunch, bro! When I came here for Summerlicious, I had a pork chop that was super-delicious, so you know I’m gonna come back for some back bacon—even if it is six dollars extra.

But for the main event, we’re talking Banoffee French Toast. It’s bananas (and bananas is good), it’s toffee, it’s nice thick slices of bread with a mascarpone whipped cream—you could put it on a flip-flop, and it would still taste good! And did I mention the duck fat home fries???

These taters were so hot they put an alligator in yer radiator! You’ve got some nicely seasoned crispy potato, which goes great with back bacon, a little whipped cream, candied banana and French toast—this is the perfect bite right here, bro:
