TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: Well, I’ll be a Venezuelan’s breakfast…

Now, since all the restaurants in Toronto have gone to takeout and delivery, one thing I haven’t seen a lot of is brunch or breakfast food. Another thing you don’t see every day? How bout real-deal Venezuelan, like they’re serving up at El Venezolano, this funky joint on the Danforth!!!

Now, this place is cooking up an all-day breakfast — but it’s not just any breakfast, it’s a Venezuelan breakfast, bro! Check out this righteous melody!!!

OK, now let’s break it down. What we’ve got here is shredded beef, black beans, scrambled eggs with some onions and peppers — kinda like a Western omelette — a whole pile of shredded cheese, and then an arepa, this Latin American corn cake, sliced into four pieces. The beef is super-tender, goes nice with a little melty cheese, a bit of kick from the peppers in the eggs…and more black beans than I would normally eat in any meal, never mind breakfast! Still, this dish was super-tasty — and this is the perfect bite, right here:
