Pray Tell Kitchen and Bar is a cozy and lively spot in Toronto at the corner of Ossington and College. My girls and I went there for a late brunch last week and had a fabulous time! We went around 2 pm and luckily did not have to wait for a seat. The décor was very warm and inviting with a wall full of plants and eclectic lights.
Even more inviting was the waitress who was very friendly. She told us right off the bat that they had run out of avocado and potatoes. We were a bit disappointed as those are key ingredients to a delicious brunch. However, we went ahead and ordered another important brunch must-have: bottomless mimosas!
Let’s move on to the food! The girls ordered the Chicken Club Sammy. Pray Tell’s chicken club is made with grilled chicken, bacon, avocado (obvi missing that day), garlic mayo, tomatoes, arugula with a side of potato hash and mixed greens. One of my girls asked them for a side of sausage since there were no potatoes. They said that they couldn’t and just gave extra greens on the side. My friend ordered the sausage anyways. Disappointingly, the sausages came out dry and we didn’t even end up eating them.
Going back to the chicken club, my girls enjoyed it but due to the lack of ingredients they didn’t really get to have the whole experience of the dish. However, they did love the homemade garlic mayo and said that it was what saved the dish.
I ordered the Brisket Benny which is exactly what it sounds like. It’s an eggs Benedict with brisket instead of bacon or salmon. I asked if they could make it with salmon instead since I’m not a huge fan of brisket, however they said no. The kitchen doesn’t seem to do many modifications. I ordered it anyway and surprisingly it was really good. The hollandaise sauce was rich and creamy and the egg was nice and runny. The side of greens was a fresh touch but still wishing I could’ve tried their potatoes.
All in all, the food at Pray Tell wasn’t amazing only due to the missing ingredients. I mean, avocado is one of the biggest reasons why brunch is so fabulous right?! However, the service, décor and ambience definitely made up for it. Most importantly, the company of my squad is what really made my brunch. These girls never fail to make me laugh, are always so supportive and I’m so grateful to have them in my life.
Hope that you enjoyed this week’s post and stay tuned for next Monday’s post! As promised, I will be doing a review of Saranghae’s products. It’s been a little more than a month that I’ve been using their 5 step routine and I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you on it! Thanks so much for reading ?❤️ xx
