The Location: The White Brick Kitchen (on Bloor, a few blocks east of Honest Ed’s)
The Time: Sunday Morning, early June
The Company: Chris. This was one of our only dates in June!
Veggie Menu: “Scotch-ish Eggs”, which were two soft boiled eggs breaded and fried, with hollandaise sauce, served with greens, a baguette and potatoes; rarebit (no rabbit involved!) with aged cheddar pimento cheese, texas toast, sunny side up eggs, and greens; lemon blueberry waffle with cheesecake ice cream; banana bread french toast
I have to admit, I am skeptical of Toronto shops and restaurants in those white brick buildings. This must be due to my Cochrane Ontario upbringing, and the creepiness that was the King George Hotel.
The White Brick Kitchen gives new hope to all those white brick buildings in Koreatown , that they too can escape a fate similar to the King George Hotel (like most buildings in Cochrane, I must assume it fell into condemnation, and then burnt down. Correct me if I’m wrong).
Chris and I shared the rarebit (don’t google-search this word. I promise there was no rabbit involved!) and the Scotch-ish eggs. I thoroughly enjoyed both dishes, especially the aged cheddar pimento cheese in the rarebit dish. Chris enjoyed both dishes as well, but found the rarebit dish too rich. On the other hand, the Scotch-ish eggs were, and I quote, “Astoundingly well-cooked”, and the yolk was perfectly runny.
White Brick Kitchen, thanks for not being the King George hotel. We’ll be back!
