Vegan Dad on the Road: Brunch at Mi Lah

After many a recommendation I went for brunch at Mi Lah on Sunday. I wanted a mix of savoury and sweet so I ended up ordering a lot of food. First up: Tofu Benedict with kale and roasted potatoes. The kale was a welcome addition to my on-the-road diet but the potatoes were a little overdone. The Tofu Benedict had great taste but, as you can see from the pic, lacked a little something in the presentation. I could have used more Hollandaise sauce (which tasted great) since the pieces of tofu were substantial and the plain whole wheat English muffin needed something to mop off the plate.
Next: french toast. I had to ask for maple syrup, which I thought would have been a standard part of the dish. This tasted great but I have a sneaking suspicion that it is deep fried instead of pan fried. I also wasn't crazy about being served the end of the loaf of bread. Still, I really enjoyed the brunch as did the continuous stream of people coming in the door.

Oh, you didn't get the seitan. I cannot believe you got the end of the loaf! Personally I think the french toast at Full Plate Cafe is the best french toast I have ever had, but the seitan and the tofu omelette I really liked at Mi Lah.

you had all my favs! i do agree with everything you said though. they need to step it up on with the english muffin and the potatoes are never quite right. but it is still delicious. one of my fav vegan brunches.

Since when does French toast come with maple syrup? Or am I missing out on something?

I've eaten there twice. I have never had brunch there, but from what I read in reviews it's not the best place for brunch. However, dinner there is amazing. The last time I went was on my birthday and it's probably one of the best birthday dinners I've had, ever. The most memorable food item was an appetizer of tofu with pureed edamame and some sprouts. I've never had tofu so perfectly marinated and not-deep fried. I agree with rrf! about the vegan french toast at A Full Plate (granola!). I've yet to figure out how to make it...

oh man, I love MiLah and always get the tofu benedict, specifically for the kale! I've been there for brunch, lunch, and dinner, and my fav is definitely brunch. Glad you enjoyed!
