Mother's Day Brunch at Italian Cultural Centre

K and I have been taking out our mom for dinner almost every year on Mother's Day but this time, K happened to chance across some tickets to the buffet brunch at the Italian Cultural Centre. Tickets are $40 but it is all you can eat with the following menu:

Salmon Gravlax

Fresh Fruit Platter
Chocolate Croissant, Danish, Banana Bread
Purple Cabbage Coleslaw with Beets and Grainy Dijon
Mediterranean Salad with Feta, Olives, Green Beans and Pomegranate Dressing
New Potato Salad with Honey Dijon Vinaigrette

Brioche French Toast
Belgian Style Waffles served with a Selection of Toppings
Classic Eggs Benedict
Spinach, Feta & Roast Tomatoe Baked Frittata
Dill Potato Cakes and Hash Brown Potatoes
Steelhead and Cod Duo on Lentils with Butter Sauce
Cappelletti with Ground Sausage, Mushrooms and a Demi-Glace
Rotini with Pesto and Vegetables
Inside Round of Beef with Pearl Onions
Brown Sugar Glazed Ham
Thick Cut Bacon and Pork Sausage

Selection of Sweets, Bars and Puddings
Coffee, Tea
Free pop and juice, cash bar available for other drinks.

Sounded pretty good and mom gave the approval so off we went.

The dining area was in a grand ballroom. The parties were staggered by every half hour starting from 10:30am finishing at 12:30pm. There's only about 10 or so tables each half hour so there isn't a rush of people all the time at the buffet tables which is a great system! It was a little funny since we were the only Asians there besides W's sister's family who coincidentally was also having brunch with the in-laws!

I'm never good at buffets. Didn't eat that much, I kind of filled up on my first plate!

Dessert. This cute chocolate cup dessert always went first! Had to keep an eye out when they brought out more from the kitchen! It was some kind of blackberry mousse inside the cup. A little tart but I liked it.

Brunch was ok. It's not like fine dining but Mom liked it and that's the important thing. My aunt saw the pictures and demanded I take her next year! LOL
