BRUNCH

THE COOLEST WEEKEND BRUNCH GOING IS ALMOST GONE, SO GET DOWN THERE

DON'T MISS OUT ON THE COOLEST WEEKEND BRUNCH GOING

Delicious Tansi-style breakfast corn dog on the frozen Assiniboine River.

This weekend marks the last opportunity to brunch on ice for 2014. Head on down to RAW:almond Saturday or Sunday between 9 am and 2 pm to for a multi-course brunch feast from Talia Syrie and her Tansi Restaurant team. Brunch is $22 (cash-only). This week’s menu promises new delights such as fresh cornbread and baked beans, and sweet potato blintzes with ‘slaw and pulled pork, plus the fitting return of the most apt river pop-up grub: Red River Cereal.

Check out The Manitoban’s impression of last weekend’s brunch, which includes Talia Syrie’s delicious ambition: “We tried to deep fry something in every course.” Listen to podcast featuring full length interview via Katy’s Kitchen. Super interesting window into logistics of cooking on a frozen river.

BRUNCH ON ICE – Saturdays and Sundays are Fun Days with Tansi at RAW:almond

This was last weekend’s Tansi Brunch at RAW:almond. Pretty darn delicious.

Luckily, it’s about to happen all over again this weekend (Feb 1-2) and the next (Feb 8-9), from 9 am-2 pm. Everyone is welcome, no tickets or reservations required.

The multi-course, walk-up brunch costs $22 (cash only). It’s not surprising the food is delicious with Talia Syrie in the kitchen. The Tansi Restaurant at Neechi Commons¬†food coordinator and The Tallest Poppy owner is well-known for doing right by brunch.

New to this weekend’s Tansi menu:¬†Corn beef hash with biscuits and gravy! And something simply called ‘hot mess’ that involves chocolate.

The most exciting brunch development is the new Marshmallow Tasting Bar debuting this weekend.

For $7 (cash only) try four flavours of handmade marshmallow: Sweet sugar-dusted, Blueberry spicy chili lime chocolate-dipped, Salty chocolate-dipped, and Chili flaked in sweet lemon ginger sauce.

Thank you to active members of Winnipeg’s food community, Kevin Bailey and¬†Shel¬†Zolkevich, for sharing their Tansi brunch photos. Shel has a great piece on weekend brunch in her River City Kitchen column.

RAW:almond is located on the frozen confluence of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers, adjacent the Red River Mutual Trail in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
