Best Brunch: House of Boateng

#105-2854 Peatt Road, Langford  |  $$ |  houseofboateng.ca  |  Reservations available for groups of eight+

Castro Boateng is a master chef so there’s always something creative and delicious on the menu at House of Boateng in Langford. A Toronto native with Ghanaian roots, Boateng brings an international vibe to his daily brunch menu, along with a range of his own sauces and marinades, meals-to-go and long-table dinners from his HOB Fine Foods catering kitchen down the street.

The breakfast sandwich at HOB is a halloumi BLT with fried egg and harissa aioli and the French toast starts with his own banana bread. Or try one of his signature brunch dishes — the African bowl with jollof rice topped with chicken sausage, scrambled eggs and smoky shrimp aioli, or the huevos rancheros with crispy tortilla, jerk chicken and Ghanaian beans.

This is a beautiful brunch with vegetarian options — and sparkling mimosas, of course!
