Top 5 Eggs Benedict in Mississauga
When I was young and in possession of a weak, pathetic and inept palate, I hated the succulent and splendid delicacy that is eggs benedict. I didn't like the buttery, rich hollandaise sauce and the deliciously runny eggs.
With time, I saw the error of my ways and realized that eggs benny is the best goddamn breakfast dish in the world. If you're a traditionalist, you can grab a classic creation with an English muffin, poached eggs, peameal bacon and hollandaise sauce. If you're a little kinkier in the culinary department, you can spice things up with a toasted croissant, smoked salmon, crabmeat, asparagus, spinach, guacamole and cheese. Me? I like my eggs benedict with smoked salmon and Brie (just in case you were wondering).
Fortunately for you, Mississauga has some wonderful restos that serve exceptional eggs benedicts that suit both classic and experimental tastes. Here's a look at some of the best and most creative dishes you can find nearby.
5 - Bobby's Hideaway
If you're looking for an iconic greasy spoon, you might want to check out Streetsville relic Bobby's Hideaway. Spacious and casual, this joint has big, hearty dishes that will cure even the nastiest and most resilient of hangovers -- so it's perfect for a Sunday brunch after a wild Saturday. If you're into traditional eggs benny, Bobby's offers the basics in the form of poached eggs, an English muffin, peameal bacon and hollandaise. The eggs Florentine offers the same dish with a hearty dose of spinach.
Union Social Eatery is a casual restaurant located in a plaza in the business park area along Derry Rd, bordering Brampton which caters to the local businesses as well diners who happen to have come across this local spot while driving by. Their Eggs Benny is only available on the brunch menu on the weekend and is served on pancetta with a shooter of watermelon strawberry. Union Social Eatery originated in Mississauga and has since expanded with their second location in Toronto. The menu is fun, the dishes creative and it offers something for everyone.
Back in 2013, this old school British pub underwent a complete makeover and now boasts a sleeker, more stylish aesthetic. If you want to enjoy a filling, causal brunch in a decidedly British setting, you might want to hit up the Drake. If you're in the mood for classics, you can enjoy a really straight-up English breakfast with ingredients that include eggs, beer brats and braised onions. If you're in the mood for eggs benny, this resto offers a fun turkey and guacamole eggs benedict for $13. It's a modest dish with a thin turkey slice and lightly applied guac. It feels a little healthier and if you grab it before 3 pm, you can pair it with a $5 mimosa.
2 - Bistro Narra
This Churchill Meadows resto boasts a tasty and creative breakfast menu. If you want eggs benedict, you can try the bistro's Narra Benedict with asparagus, bearnaise sauce and peameal bacon ($9) or the Narra Florentine with salmon, spinach and bechamel sauce ($9). Both are served with breakfast potatoes and fresh fruit. Note that the sauces on both dishes are little more understated than traditional hollandaise, which might appeal to some diners more than others. Also, the Narra Florentine has real, cooked salmon -- not smoked.
1 - Kravingz
Lissa Genobaga and Damian Kubarski are a husband and wife team who are self-proclaimed foodies and steadfast local supporters who love their community in Clarkson. Their relatively new resto is perfect for brunch and offers benedict enthusiasts the unique Polski Benedict. It's made with potato placki (a Polish potato pancake), smoked salmon or peameal bacon, poached eggs and house-made hollandaise sauce. Any benedict made with a potato pancake is a benedict worth trying.
