Food and Drinks: OEB is known for their famous Soul in a Bowl, a brunch-style poutine with poached eggs, potatoes and bacon smothered in their brown butter hollandaise sauce. Variations of the soul in a bowl include avocados and tomatoes or pulled chicken, you can even get it without eggs.
However that shouldn’t be the only reason why you visit OEB. There are many other amazing dishes just as delicious if not more so. The hubby decided to order the Maritime Lobster and Shrimp Scramble, which is only served in limited quantities daily, all dependent on how much fresh seafood they’ve received. If it’s not fresh, they won’t serve it. The butter poached Canadian lobster are scrambles with shrimp, eggs and green onions then served inside a thin crepe topped with brown butter hollandaise. To elevate the plate even more, it’s garnished with French kelp caviar and micro greens!
As for me, I wanted to satisfy my sweet tooth and had the Belgium Waffle with fresh strawberries and raspberries. The waffles are normally served with either fresh strawberries or blueberries or a combo of both, but they were out of blueberries that day and the raspberries were an excellent substitution. Tart and juicy, it was perfect with the super fluffy waffle. Each bite literally melted in my mouth. I barely even had to use any maple syrup. Instead I decided on a side of whipped cream (how can I not?) which was a bit extra cost wise but well worth it. Nothing beats strawberries and whipped cream on waffles.
