I met Amy last Sunday for one the most sophisticated brunches I’ve had in a long time. If the food eaten can serve as a harbinger of what to expect for their dinner service, complex flavours alongside an earthy play on textures, I would not mind visiting Keriwa Café again. Though I can’t speak about the Indigenous/Aboriginal influences in the dishes, it definitely tasted different from the usual brunch fare. I really liked it!
Confit Pork Belly, $15 – A hearty little portion of cubed pork belly slathered in a mouth-watering mustard sauce and topped with a sprig of watercress. It sat on a bed of wild mushrooms and caramelized leeks and shallot with red fife toast. Between the mustard and the sweetness of the shallots and the tender pork belly, my mouth was very happy. I would order it again in a heartbeat.
Picnicham Hash, $14 – Two eggs and slices of ham with a side of bright greens, roasted carrots, and elderberries. Amy says it was quite good! It definitely looked tasty.
Hashbrowns, $5 – A bit plain, but a nice addition to the meal. I shamelessly used them to scrape up as much leftovers as I could off my plate.
Americano, $4 – I added cream because of doctor’s order to get as much calcium as I could….aahh…
