Sundays are always the funnest! Especially when the weather is gorgeous. It’s the perfect day to go out for brunch with friends, take a stroll downtown and just shop. It’s what I look forward to during the week. Last Sunday my best friend and I went to brunch at Barbounya, a Turkish restaurant located on Laurier. They now serve brunch which is a smart move considering the fact that it’s such a big trend to do so nowadays.
Barbounya serves the platter above with any breakfast option you choose to go with. A nice fresh tomato and cucumber salad paired with a side of olives, nuts and an array of different yummy, fresh jams. They serve this platter before getting your main plate.
As my main dish, I ordered a french toast brioche which was drizzled with chocolate and tahini sauce. I was intrigued by the pairing of chocolate and tahini sauce and knew I obviously had to try it (I always love trying new strange things when it comes to food). Usually tahini sauce is served with meat and vegetables in the Middle East as a dip, so you can see why I was so intrigued by this combination. At first bite, it felt weird but it was such a yummy combination, I almost licked the whole plate!
