Chef George is this awesome little Filipino brunch spot.

 

Chef George is this filipino restaurant masked as a brunch spot in a pretty isolated area of Scarborough (not much else in the area). The restaurant is not very large but can house a small crowd if need be. Though the restaurant is disguised as a brunch place, this is a sweet place for some Filipino and they have some dishes on the menu.

I was in the mood to hate myself so I opted to go for their fried chicken garlic rice. The girlfriend didn't necessarily go any healthier, as she ordered the Big Breakfast AND French Toast w Fruit. Seriously?

Anywho, the fried chicken garlic rice is just a heaping amount of garlic fried rice with a ton of fried chicken layered on top. Yeah. It's as good as it sounds. The fried chicken is boneless strips and I love the batter. It's crisp and not at all greasy.

The Big Breakfast was just that. Big. A good portion of eggs, bacon, sausage, and potatoes with toast. Nothing special about it though. Was hoping for more of a filipino twist, but remains your standard breakfast. Oh, and the French Toast? It must have been good as the girlfriend pushed her breakfast aside and absolutely dummied that toast. I feared for her life as I did not see her chew.

One thing I hate is that they are only open til 3pm everyday and closed on Sundays. Based on my work schedule, the only time I can really come is Saturday morning and afternoon. Great place for some nice grub. I'm not a big breakfast guy while my girl is. This place appeases both.
