Communal Brunch with The Depanneur featuring Don Chingón

August 21 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Communal Brunch with The Depanneur featuring Don Chingón happens every Saturday, July 3-September 4

 

REGISTER >>

 

The Depanneur & The Bentway have teamed up once again to offer safe shared culinary experiences this summer.

Every Saturday, beginning July 3, a weekly Communal Brunch featuring Don Chingón will feature a tasty trinity of Mexican comfort food — Tacos, Tortas, & Tamales — with a TO brunch twist.

Aaron Okada, a talented local chef with nearly 15 years in some of Toronto’s top kitchens, has joined forces with Oskar Diaz from Tampico, Mexico (where he ran several restaurants, and his mom ran a tamale business with over 35 flavours of tamales!) to create Don Chingón, an exciting new Mexican weekend brunch concept on Saturdays at The Bentway.

A trio of pre-orderable Brunch Boxes for 2 or 4 people complements a walk-up menu of Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales, along with a selection of authentic Mexican snacks, drinks, and their signature Huasteca Hot Sauce.

Limited on-site seating will be available at The Bentway on a first-come, first-serve basis. Masks are required at contactless pick-up (12:00pm-1:00pm) and to access on-site washrooms, and we ask that all guests please practice physical distancing while waiting to pick up their meal.

In order to minimize waste, please bring your own cutlery, picnic blanket(s), and beverage(s). Please note: Alcohol consumption is not permitted on-site.

Brunch for two: $49 + HST  |  Brunch for four: $89 + HST

Pre-registration is required.
Pick-up: 12:00pm – 1:00pm.  
Please bring your own plates and cutlery.
Alcohol consumption prohibited on site.
Rain or shine.

 

PAY-IT-FORWARD

Everyone is welcome.

As organizations that champion accessibility, The Bentway and The Depanneur have teamed up to introduce a pay-it-forward option for this year’s summer food series.

When pre-ordering picnic meals online, guests will be given the opportunity to contribute to a Pay-It-Forward meal. All funds collected as part of the Pay-It-Forward initiative will be used to create fresh meals for The Spadina-Fort York Community Care Program.
