Back in March, some of my coworkers and I had lunch at Catch 122, as per my suggestion. I’ve heard so many great things about this place and decided that it was finally time that I check it out!
I made reservations for the five of us, and am I glad I did – the restaurant was full when we arrived, with a short line forming. I wouldn’t mind waiting, but didn’t want to waste our lunch break waiting in line and having to rush the eating part.
After much indecisiveness, I decided to get the croque madame. It came with a poached egg, house smoked ham, Yukon nugget potatoes, and salad. The poached egg and ham came on top of a piece of toast and fresh veggies. I really liked the savoury potatoes, as well as the ham due to its smoky flavour.
Coworker’s braised short rib benedict – I didn’t try it, but he said the short rib was really, really, really good.
We also split a pulled pork poutine as well. The fries were pretty standard, but the pulled pork was delicious. It was tender and was full of flavour, there was also a generous amount of pork and cheese too. We were pretty stuffed by the time we ended our meal.
I’m glad that I finally got a change to try Catch 122! Service was very slow though, not sure if they were extra busy that day or if it is always like that? I would have liked this place a lot more if service was more friendly. I’m not dying to come back, but it’s a good brunch option if you’re ever in the neighbourhood.
Do you like Catch 122?
