Eggs & Kabob

This restaurant has closed down.Eggs & Kabob We had a few days off and it felt like a long weekend. What better way to start your day than having a good breakfast? Since we were in the west end, we decided to give Eggs & Kabob a try. We had heard positive reviews, but were ambivalent. Nonetheless we decided to visit Eggs & Kabob for breakfast. Eggs & Kabob is a new addition to halal dining in Peel region. It is located at 120 Clementine Drive, Brampton. It is near Steeles & Mavis. Eggs & Kabob Eggs & Kabob Eggs & Kabob Upon entering we noticed the restaurant is very clean and spacious. This made us happy, as we aren’t big fans of rundown restaurants. They have a whole counter dedicated to tea (good variety), coffee, milk/creamers as well as a large selection of jams and the like. There’s another smaller counter with ketchup, napkins and cutlery. As you’re placing the order, you can see the kitchen, which also looked very clean. We got a couple of menus and got seated and decided to go through in detail to figure what we’d like to order. Below is a list of some of the breakfast items we found on the menu (all order include home fries):

  • Chicken/Turkey Sausages with Eggs
  • NY Steak with Eggs
  • Grilled Chicken Breast with Eggs
  • Variety of Kabobs, served with Eggs
  • Variety of Omelettes
  • French Toast & Pancakes

The remaining is an extensive lunch and dinner menu items. As usual, we were in the mood for both sweet and savoury items for breakfast. We decided to order Eastern Omelette (ground beef, onions, tomatoes, peppers) and French Toast. Eastern Omelette @ Eggs & Kabob We first tried the omelette and loved it! The omelette itself tasted fine (though had to add a little more salt ), but we loved the addition of well-seasoned beef kabob/sausage. And may we add, there was a good quantity of beef kabob/sausage in it. We were skeptical and thought it may not go well in the omelette, but were pleasant surprised with how well the combination worked out.  We were given the choice of toast, so we picked whole wheat. As expected, they came buttered. The homemade fries were delicious as well! We loved the way they were fried to perfection and well-seasoned. French Toast @ Eggs & Kabobs Next, we tried the French Toast (we chose white bread). The order consisted of 3 slices of french toast. They tasted perfectly fine and in line with what you would expect at most breakfast places. We got some butter and maple syrup from the counter, which complimented the french toast really well. Our overall experience was very good. We loved the fact that we could make our own tea and pick our own jams, spreads and other condiments. Our breakfast certainly felt and tasted freshly prepared, which we enjoyed very much. Up until now we used to frequent Denny’s and Cora’s in Mississauga,  but after having Eggs & Kabob, we will be coming here instead. It may by no means be an upscale restaurant, but having found a halal (meat) breakfast option makes it our preferred breakfast restaurant. We definitely recommend them! Our total with tip & taxes was $22 and change. Eggs & Kabob 120 Clementine Drive, Brampton, ON 905-453-3330

Breakfast at Sizzling Skillet

We paid a few visits to Sizzling Skillet when it first opened for lunch & dinner but we weren’t too impressed, so we didn’t think of going back. Ever (harsh, but true).

However, when we recently learned about their Toblerone pancakes, we reluctantly decided to give their breakfast a try. We are big suckers for good breakfast. So one lazy Saturday morning, we said hey, let’s go give Sizzling Skillet a try today. The one incentive we had of trying this place again was their customer service. We have always appreciated their friendly and attentive service. We thought to ourselves, it’s ok if the breakfast turns out to be not so great….at least the customer service will rock!

We were in for a surprise. The breakfast was amazing! Yes! It’s true. We ordered Toblerone Pancakes ($6.25) and Western Omelette ($7.95). The pancakes were soft and fluffy and had Toblerone shredded on top. We enjoyed these with lots of maple syrup (om nom nom anyone?). We usually think pancakes are kind of boring but these made us change our mind. These were truly awesome!

We also ordered the Western Omelette, which came with rye bread and hash browns. This omelette had bell peppers, onions, salami and cheese. We gotta admit, salami was the reason we ordered this particular omelette. It did not disappoint. The omelette was delicious, the veggies were sautéed to perfection, the salami was as a good as it sounded and the cheese…well, you can’t go wrong with cheese. The hash browns were okay-ish but the rye bread was great. One bite and we were surprised at how good it tasted! Our bill came up to $16 and change which was pretty reasonable for two people in our opinion.

We loved the breakfast so much that we decided to back the very next weekend and again ordered Toblerone Pancakes as well as Steak & Cheese Omelette Panini ($7.98). If you look at the menu you won’t find the Steak & Cheese Omelette Panini. It is because it was an item that the chef had us try as it is something he is thinking of introducing.

Hands down, this panini was the best thing we ever ate for breakfast.  Tender steak, oozing cheese, and hot sauce between two slices of rye bread. One word: UH-MA-ZING! This was so good that we didn’t want to share it with each other. We highly recommend this item. Just ask the chef to make your Steak & Cheese Omelette into a panini and you will be able to enjoy this delicious breakfast.

So if you’re in Scarborough and in the mood for breakfast (with halal meat option), make sure you visit Sizzling Skillet.

Their customer service remains very good!

Please note: We were under the impression that breakfast is only on weekends. A recent phone call confirmed that it is also available during weekdays from 10am-3pm.
