Burdock and Co.

Burdock & Co. Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Caught up with a dear friend over Sunday brunch and Burdock and Co. was her pick. Busy busy busy but they take reservations! Table spacing is tight AND the tables are light and not bolted to the floor, so don't bulldoze your way around.

Didn't get a non-alcoholic drink menu right away so ask about it. Coffee and tea available of course but also a small selection of Fentimans.

Risotto ($17) biodynamic aged rice, sunchoke, walnut
  • Looks deceptively simple and therefore can look initially disappointing.
  • Even if you overlook the biodynamic aged rice portion of the item, it is actually surprisingly tasty thanks to the flavourful oil.
  • Portion may seem small compared to whatever your dining companion is getting but it's not very watery so it works out to be a decently filling portion.
  • Not overly sweet, interesting flavour, and strangely very little aftertaste.
My friend had the rather hearty-sized looking chickpea tagine that comes with two wedges of toasted bread. From the taste I got, I felt the spicing of the stew was rich and promising.

Price overall felt steep probably for the popularity of the restaurant but what they do make is tasty. If you prize quality over quantity the price should look okay. Either that or I lucked out ordering the most intriguing brunch menu item.
