I’ve been adopted by Jackie’s parents. I am their foodie adoptive daughter and I am honoured to be the person that they call when they want to try a new smoked meat place – especially of the pulled pork variety!
We had a yummy family brunch at Smoque N Bones just a stone’s throw away from Trinity Bellwoods Park on Queen West.
Their brunch menu is new and not posted on their website just yet. A word of warning: this is not a vegetarian friendly place. A lot of their vegetable options usually have meat mixed in. Jackie ordered their meat-free Peach Stuffed French Toast:
It looked very appealing but they had some trouble cooking this dish all the way through. We ended up sending it back. It has some promise but a pass during this meal!
For some reason their brunch menu doesn’t seem to highlight their strength – namely SMOKED MEAT. Why offer a stack of pancakes and not top it off with your amazing pulled pork? Where are the ribs on this menu! Luckily, their pulled pork benny delivered where the rest of their brunch menu did not:
This more than made up for the lack of tempting options on the brunch menu. It was so filling (I am still full several hours later!) The key ingredient other than the mouthwatering pulled pork would have to be the Jalapeño Hollandaise – it really brought this dish together!
Mark and Cherie decided to order off the regular menu. Mark’s Beef Brisket Sandwich has to be the most photogenic sandwich I have ever photographed.
Cherie of course went with the pulled pork sandwich. She loved it.
She is my pulled pork expert so if Cherie says it’s the best pulled pork sandwich she’s had in Toronto, it’s very good! A special shout out goes to the Waffle Sweet Potato fries. They were delicious and served with a yummy spicy dipping sauce.
It’s clear that Smoque N Bones is new to brunch, but I think they only need a few tweaks to make their brunch menu as equally mouthwatering as their regular fair! Something I’d love to see: a baby back ribs eggs benny?
