Respond to Review of Grasslands
by Isabelle Gosselin
Review: We went there two times, both for the brunch, Saturday and Sunday, as we were in Toronto for the weekend and had liked this restaurant very much. Over the course of the two meals, we tried the Hangover tofu scramble, their home made sausages, chipotle mac'n cheese, Cesar salad, and chicken and waffle. It ranged from so-so (mac'n cheese) to very good (sausages) to delectable (all the rest). The food was well presented and abundant, making for colorful, gargantuesque plates and we loved it! Very interestingly their Cesar salad was made mostly if not entirely of kale and it was the best I'd ever had. All their salads were outstanding. The tofu scramble was very very good, with the right moisture and softness so that I really had the mouth feel of scrambled eggs when they're done to perfection. It was accompanied by guacamole, salsa, and black beans and everything mixed together so harmoniously, the "mexican" taste really blending well and not overpowering, just giving the tofu more richness and a pleasant little kick. Also there were 2 slices of very good multigrain toasts, home made and oh so good fries, and salad (see above). The chicken in the waffle was crispy, tender, and juicy, and included also was a crisp romaine leaf and a slice of tomato. It was coated with a delectable mildly spicy sauce and was served with fries and salad. My husband had it and declared it very creative and very good. The staff, extremely friendly, recognized us when we came back and reacted so warmly; you could tell they were genuinely pleased to see us. The decor is warm, trendy, and we felt good there, welcomed and not rushed or pushed to buy anything whatsoever. We loved it and will be back for sure.
