We have a new addition to the places where you can get brunch all day, Yolk’s Restaurant and Commissary have opened at Clark and Hastings Street. In what used to be the old Brave Bull House of Steaks the food cart that won Vancouverites over with their perfectly poached eggs have created a spot you can get your eggs benny on till late afternoon. With my ever expanding waistline I invited friends and fellow egg lovers the Food Gay’s to get our brunch on.
They serve Stumptown Coffee $2.25/$1.75 to go and you have the option of getting unlimited refills $1.
I went with the Breakfast Muffins (3 for $10.75). The selection of muffins from left to right are the Croque Monsieur, Croque Madame and a Spinach Mushroom and Goat Cheese. The brioche used as the base of the muffins was nice and crisp on the outside with a tender inside. My favorite of them all was the Croque Madame with its perfectly poached egg and tangy rich hollandaise sauce. I found the portion size alright as a brunch appy and they’d make a nice light breakfast.
Jeremy went with the Chicken and Waffles ($11.75). This is one of Yolks best-selling and most popular dishes on the food truck. The chicken itself is moist with a nice breading on the outside but the waffle itself was on the soft side. I’ve had this dish once before and found it alright but I’d stick to the egg dishes.
Adrian had the Double Smoked Bacon Eggs Benny ($10.75). Classic eggs benny, how can you go wrong right! The eggs come usually are perfectly poached and each component of the dish is great as it should be but only 1 of the 2 eggs had a runny yolk. I personally thought the plate looked pretty sparse without a side dish.
Overall I liked my food at Yolk’s and it’s a must visit for any egg lover out there, the restaurant is a nice addition to a dining scene where brunch seems to only take place on the weekend. Stay tuned to the new season of Eat St. as Yolk’s will be one of the featured vendors!
