Everything on Prohibition‘s menu sounds amazing. House cured salmon on a sesame bagel? Oooh. Shakshouka? Cool. Maple fried challah French toast with fried chicken? Hell yes.
Self proclaimed providers of ‘gourmet comfort food’, Prohibition montreal endeavours to serve brunch as it should be.
I’ve been holding off on this post for way too long. After going to Accords once and loving it too much, I thought I would go back within a reasonable amount of time, combine photos and make a bigger post just for you. Unfortunately for me, that hasn’t happened as soon as I would have liked. In any case, I’m going to show you the best brunch place you’ve seen in a while… Get ready!
Looking to catch up with a friend in Toronto, we were drawn to Fire on the East Side after hearing about some amazing fried chicken on waffles. Upon getting there and scanning the menu with no sign of the dish, it proved to be totally elusive. According to our server, the dish had never existed at the place. I won’t lie, we were pretty disappointed, as we had chosen the place based solely on the possibility of eating that specific dish. We contemplated leaving for a few seconds, but the thought quickly vanished as we took the first few bites out of the house made banana bread. Moist and soft, the little square of sweetness bolstered our appetites and we sat on.
Known as a kosher friendly bistro, Tiffany’s offers breakfast (served until 4 p.m.), lunch, and dinner in the mid-town area of Montreal. Many of the diners that were there during my meal seemed to be regulars, giving the atmosphere a comfortable and worn in feel despite the size of the place. The big leather booths, metal railings, and the style of the uniformed waiters and waitresses bring to mind the decor and ambiance of Baton Rouge which can be a good or a bad thing, depending on what you like.
I first encountered a version of this recipe at Trident which is an independent cafe & bookstore in Boston. Trident was named Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Back Bay by Boston Magazine and for good reason. Their version used thick sliced Challah bread which was stuffed with lemon ricotta filling while our creation on the left had the same filling sandwiched between two slices of cinnamon raisin bread. This is closer to a recipe posted on Always With Butter but we added wild berries. We used more then the recommended teaspoon of lemon zest in an effort to get a bold taste and came close to overdoing it. Overall it was great with or without maple syrup and was pretty easy to make.
