I have been meaning to visit Origin for over a year now and was pleased to have the opportunity to enjoy brunch last weekend. The restaurant has received rave reviews in the papers and by fellow food writers. Everyone I know personally who has visited exclaimed about the food but also added a footnote to the conversation about how pricey their menu is. I ended up spending 45 dollars for my portion of breakfast which may just be the most expensive breakfast I ever enjoy. I will savor the fond memories via this post.
Everything tasted absolutely incredible. The duck confit paired with blueberries on the french toast truly spoke to me. I was speechless. I’m obsessed with honey, pears and mozzarella so those of you who know me won’t be shocked by my selection.
Buffalo Mozzarella + pear + rosemary oil + pine nuts + honey
Buffalo Mozzarella + confit tomato + basil + preserved lemon
French Toast + duck confit + blueberries + hoisin +sesame seed brittle + sour cream
#220 restaurant reviewed in Ontario since moving to Toronto in 2010.
