Filipino brunch Toronto

The top 5 Filipino brunch in Toronto

Filipino brunch in Toronto can put a North American brunch to shame from time to time. Bacon and pancakes are great, but what about garlic rice with your fried eggs? Nothing starts a day like a silog feast, and we have options for tons of variations on the powerful meal in this city.

Here are my picks for the top Filipino brunch in Toronto.

BBs Diner

Get a classic breakfast of garlic rice plus fried eggs plus house pork sausage, marinated monkfish belly or corned beef hash for $13 at this cute little Italy brunch spot. 

Islas

Not only does this restaurant in Parkdale always start you off with complimentary pandesal and butter, they serve one of the largest silog breakfasts with dried fish, fruit, salad, garlic rice, and fried eggs, and a choice between tocino, tapa, bangus, longanisa, bagnet, pork and chicken sisig, fried chicken, or bbq skewers for $14.95.

Lasa by Lamesa

This colourful, casual St Clair West restaurant does silog plates for $12 with fluffy garlic rice, greens, two fried eggs, and your choice of fried chicken, bbq skewers, bangus, beef tapa or crispy tofu.

Bangku

This place at Bathurst and Lawrence does silog meals for $7.49 with garlic rice, two sunny side up eggs, and a huge range of choices between tapa, pork chops, golden tocino, longanisa, bangus, Lechon kawali, bbq liempo, sisig, or tortang talong (a sort of Filipino eggplant omelette).

Ritz

This Donlands diner does Filipino brunches of tapsilog (beef), longsilog (sausage) and dasilog (fish) with two eggs, fried rice and coffee for just $7.50 alongside greasy spoon breakfasts and club sandwiches.
