When I think of brunch it's usually some version of eggs benedict accompanied by a mountain of fruit. Meat isn't usually the first thing to come to mind, so when Meat deviated from their weeknight dinner service to offer weekend brunch I was curious to see what was on the menu.
MEAT - 8216 104 Street - Edmonton AB
Edmonton doesn't have as much of a brunch culture as other cities (hello, Calgary!), but it's great to see another restaurant start to offer casual weekend dining. Old Strathcona is a great area to spend a warm weekend afternoon, so why not kick it off with brunch at Meat? And not to worry if you're a vegetarian, as they have veggie friendly options too. Not too many people seem to know about brunch yet, as it wasn't overly busy during our visit, so you can avoid long lineups and kickstart your weekend with some smoked goodness!
