Now that it's officially fall, it's time to embrace seasonal flavours and indulge in dishes that will warm you up from the inside out. And if you're not quite ready to let go of your favourite summer treats like ice cream, there are still inventive ways you can enjoy them in the cooler months. Here are five tasty snacks you should try this month.
Most brunch spots serve an eggs Benedict dish, but restaurants like Brekkie Cafe are taking things to the next level by offering seven different kinds of the popular dish. Choose between eggs Benedict topped with ham, wild mushroom, Moroccan chicken, crab and asparagus, grilled chorizo and ghost pepper coulis, wine braised lamb or maple chili braised short rib.

Dim sum at Great Taste just wouldn't be complete without a basket of the steamed pork soup dumplings. Each order comes with six pieces that are just the right size to pop in your mouth. Let them cool a minute before digging in though — the soup inside the dumplings can get pretty hot.
