4 stars (out of 5)
This was one of the most carefully prepared and attractively presented breakfasts on our now 135 week tour of breakfast spots in Toronto (~115 different establishments).
I decided to try the Baked Eggs while both my friends had the Hungry Joe. My dish included 2 eggs, baked in a large ramekin with chopped roma tomatoes and basil. It included “home fries”, toasted baguette and a mixed green salad.
The Hungry Joes included 2 eggs (any style), chicken bacon or pork sausages, “home fries”, chunky toast, grilled tomato and garnish. Each dish had a different garnish – one included kiwi, the other sliced grapefruit.
Everything was prepared very well (D.O. proclaimed the over easy eggs “perfect) and very artfully presented.
Why am I adding quotation marks to the “home fries”? Well, Joe’s version was different than any I’ve ever seen. It appears that a whole, unpeeled potato is boiled, then sliced into hockey puck sized pieces, then fried and spiced on each side. They were different, and tasty, but I wouldn’t call them home fries.
Definitely a good breakfast option in Kensington Market.
