After weeks of planning and rescheduling, SheShe and I finally got together for brunch. She was really wanting to try chicken and waffles, which seem to have seen a rise in popularity as of late. I of course was not one to object… I mean it’s fried chicken come on! So we looked into the best in the city and decided on visiting Tableau Bar Bistro. They were also one of the few that actually take reservations for brunch!
What’s brunch without Mimosas ($10)? We ordered some to start. It’s your usual fare.
The Chicken and Waffles ($15) were served with maple syrup. I would’ve like the waffles to be thicker, perhaps the Belgian type. The chicken was very nicely battered and crisp and juicy. However as good as fried chicken was, I didn’t get the big WOW from this dish. I think I was disappointed by the thinness of the waffles.
We also ordered their Special Poutine ($18?) which had bacon, brisket and was topped with an egg. Again this sounded better than it tasted. I would’ve preferred more sauce/gravy, which this didn’t really have much of.
I have to say though, I’m a sucker for anything with egg yolk running on top of it.
