Good news for brunch lovers who want it all: Dzô Viet Eatery has just revealed a new brunch menu that takes brunch’s greatest hits and infuses it with Vietnamese flavours.
Since rolling into Baldwin Village in 2020, Dzô has been serving up fresh, modern interpretations of fun Vietnamese street eats. In addition to fusion creations like the Photine (pho poutine), you’ll also find several carefully crafted, traditional dishes like the Thit Kho To (Pork Belly Claypot).
With cofounder David Tong continuing to spearhead their food concepts, the new brunch menu at Dzô has a good mix of reinvented brunch classics as well as Vietnamese comfort foods that are perfect for weekends.
“Our motto is to share different varieties of Vietnamese cuisine,” says cofounder Jackson Mou. “We know Toronto loves brunch, so this was an obvious next step for us.”
From the get-go, Mou and Tong knew they had to have the Bò Né Viet Steak & Egg on the menu—AAA beef tenderloin served on a sizzling hot plate with Viet pâté, laughing cow cheese, crispy shallots, and, of course, toasted banh mi to soak up all the goodness.
Another fun twist on a brunch classic is the VFC & Pandan Waffle, a colourful fusion version of Fried Chicken & Waffle, except theirs is made with Viet Fried Chicken, pandan waffle, nuoc mam syrup, crispy garlic, and an assortment of pickled veggies.
Not forgetting about fluffy pancakes at brunch, Dzô’s version—the Bánh Khot Mini Pancake—is a savoury, bite-sized dish topped with pork sausage, crispy shallots, lettuce, a dollop of creamy coconut sauce, and nuoc cham on the side.
Other dishes to try include their 5-hour slow simmered Chicken Pho, the Toasted Banh Mi & Viet Coffee combo with Ube Condensed Milk dip for your banh mi, and the Exotic Fruit Parfait with dragon fruit, jackfruit and Greek yogurt.
Finally, topping off brunch traditions is their list of new cocktails made especially for this menu by FOH Supervisor, Vincent.
The Mimosa—the crown jewel of brunch cocktails—is mixed with exotic vibes here using dragon fruit, passionfruit, or guava juice to go along with the prosecco. The Ha Long Bay Mojito is another instant favourite with Tanqueray gin, yuzu concentrate, lychee syrup, and mint leaves—the perfect summer drink.
If you can’t decide whether you need a boost or a mellow, the Egg Crème Coffee Martini is the one for you. The Viet espresso, Stolichnaya vodka, and Kahlua inside this cocktail are beautifully balanced by the smoothness of condensed milk and egg crème.
Bringing innovation and soul to every meal of the week, Dzô’s new brunch menu is opening up modern Vietnamese flavours to a whole new crowd.
“Vietnam is such a food-diverse country and we pride ourselves in showcasing its various regional cuisines,” says Mou. “With brunch, it’s enabled us to innovate with so many more ingredients and recipes to truly display what Vietnamese cuisine is all about.”
