Located in Cabbagetown, Murgatroid is a purveyor of unique, comfort-food-inspired brunch and tapas.
Murgatroid opened in September 2014 and is located a half-block south of Wellesley on Parliament St. Local-sourcing is at the heart of Murgatroid's mission to create excellent, approachable food based on classic recipes.
Murgatroid's build-out is locally-focused also. The tables were made by Forever Interiors from 100-year old BC fir originally used to frame homes near the studio; as those homes are demolished to make way for new developments, the wood is reclaimed and turned into new, useful items.
Murgatroid Sandwich and Canoe Potatoes
Our flagship sandwich, pictured here with a side of our Canoe Potatoes. This is an excellent combination. With a non-alcoholic drink, it comprises a sandwich combo. Sandwiches, soups, salads, sides and combos are available whenever we are open, in-store, for take-out and for delivery.
Eggs atop refried beans and crispy tostadas, with salsa and a bit of crumbled Canadian feta (which is very similar to the queso fresco which is traditional). Our salsa changes seasonally, but the dish is always delicious! If you love hot, spicy food, request a dollop of ghost pepper relish when you order.
Eggs Benedict made with carnitas instead of back/Canadian bacon (or ham). We make the English muffin, the ghost pepper relish, the chimichurri, the hollandaise (with our basic homemade fermented hot pepper relish)... Everything on this plate apart from the cheese was made in the restaurant.
