Popular Toronto brunch spot makes You Gotta Eat Here

Food Network's You Gotta Eat Here! has immortalized several Toronto restaurants, including Uncle Betty's Diner, Phil's Original BBQ (RIP) and Dr. Laffa, in its three years on the air.

Now, host John Catucci (our less rage-inducing answer to Guy Fieri) has made a pilgrimage to St. Clair West brunch fave Emma's Country Kitchen.

For the episode, Catucci joined chef Rachel Pellett in the kitchen to walk through the making of their Emma's Benny, walnut french toast (from house-made bread), and apple cheddar fritters. The whole menu was, unsurprisingly for any St. Clair West brunch devotee, a resounding hit (though it might be a little terrifying to learn how much butter goes into those benny biscuits).

Check out the episode, which also features the original Montreal location of Poutineville, on the Food Network website.
