BORREL

NOW Magazine - - COVER STORY -

They might eat more pan­cakes than maybe any­one else on the planet, but the Dutch aren’t re­ally big on brunch (a slice of spice cake or toast typ­i­cally does it). But Toron­to­ni­ans sure are, which is why Borrel chef Justin Go adapted many of his an­ces­tral home­land’s na­tive dishes for a week­end-only brunch menu. The crepe-like pan­nenkoeken (typ­i­cally eaten at lunch or din­ner) comes topped with thick curls of ba­con and grated cheese ($13). Kip­corn, the Dutch an­swer to chicken nuggets, is re­cast as a corn­flake­crusted patty perched atop house­made waf­fles ($14.50) and driz­zled with Dutch stroop (not maple syrup – ac­cept no sub­sti­tutes).
