Family day at Saravanaa

Family Day is observed in the Canadian province of Ontario on the third Monday of February. This holiday celebrates the importance of families and family life to people and their communities. The family day culture just started in Ontario a couple of years back, in 2009. One of the reasons for introducing Family Day was that there was a long period when there were no holidays from New Year's Day until Good Friday and to give working people the opportunity to spend more time with their families.

On Family Day, many people plan and take part in activities aimed at the whole family. These include visiting art exhibitions, watching movies, skating on outdoor ice rinks, playing board games and taking part in craft activities. Some communities plan special public events, and art galleries and museums may have reduced price or free entry. People use the long weekend as an opportunity for a short winter break or to travel to visit family members or friends

To celebrate the family day weekend, we went to an Indian restuarant Saravanaa Bhavan for brunch. Saravanaa Bhavan is a chain of Indian vegetarian restuarants. Serves the best Indian vegetarian food in Greater Toronto Area. The brunch normally starts around 10 am and ends at 12 noon. They have the wide range of Authentic/ traditional south Indian recipes. The aromatic flavours of the spices filled the room, making you feel at home. The taste and quality was excellent. The reception was great with a friendly smile. The ambience was great, clean and well maintained.

These are some of items served on the brunch apart from the freshly made puris and dosas good....

  1. This is a HUGE international chain! Who knew?! I'll have to bring my vegetarian friends here, I'm sure they would (and I would) enjoy it! Thanks for the suggestion, I hope your family enjoyed the entire experience.
