Dirty Foods Catering is located in the Junction area of Toronto just west of Dundas Street West and Keele. The space is bright, but narrow, and seats around 20-30 people. With it’s banquette seating, white washed wood tables, and succulents accenting the space it’s downright adorable. Besides catering the eatery itself does one thing and one thing only – brunch.

We try out the Chicken ‘N’ Waffle ‘Wich, $14.50 CDN + tax. Buttermilk fried chicken is sandwiched between waffles with DF mayo, candied jalapenos, iceberg lettuce, jalapeno syrup, slaw, and a choice of either a side salad or home fries. We choose the home fries on the side and to be honest after trying them they leave a little something to be desired as they lacked the crispiness of a good home fry. The chicken on the other hand was very crispy and perfectly fried. It was also incredibly moist and went well with the waffles, mayo and jalapeno syrup. I would definitely order this again, except maybe skip the home fries and get the side salad instead. Probably better on the heart anyways to help balance the fried chicken. Plus salad erases the sins of anything fried. Doesn’t it?

We also try the Salmon Jonny, $16 CDN + tax. Two poached eggs are served on top of beet-cured salmon on Jonny Cakes with dill hollandaise and fried capers. A unique take on the classic eggs benny the Salmon Jonny replaces the English muffin with two buttermilk cornmeal pancakes and ham with beet-cured salmon. It’s good. Really good. Especially since the buttermilk cornmeal Jonny Cakes are savory instead of a sweet pancake which complements the beet-cured salmon well. The fried capers are the ultimate extra touch and add just the right amount of tang to help offset the salmon and the hollandaise.

In addition to a wide range of breakfast options their lunch side of brunch choices include a lasagna, a stew, chicken salad, and pierogis. At first glance of the menu there’s nothing overly exciting about it as it’s filled with both classic brunch options as well as classics with a slight twist. While the descriptions and offerings themselves aren’t particularly eye-catching they are executed with perfect precision. It’s simple and comforting food that’s done incredibly well, everything you could ever ask for in a brunch. Paired with a chic, yet comfortable interior and friendly service Dirty Food Catering is a gem of a brunch spot. Be warned though, they close early at 3pm daily. I can only assume it’s because they  must attend to the catering portion of the business so those that like to sleep until late afternoon may have to sacrifice some snooze time to make it out here. It’s well worth though.

    Aw that sucks that the home fries weren’t good. Glad that the chicken was perfectly fried at least! Side salad.. yea, it’s probably better on the heart but not in my belly haha
