Tried out a new brunch place this Sunday in Kitsilano. Brunch is definitely one of my favourite meals of any day, and I’m constantly looking for new places to try (so if you know any LET ME KNOW).
We ordered the Chicken and Waffles and the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict to share. Their chicken and waffles wasn’t as impressive as I’ve heard. The fried chicken itself was delicious. It was very crispy and had texas style spices on it. The waffle was the part that I was a little disappointed with. I found that the waffles weren’t crispy enough on the outside. So with the honey drizzle, it felt a little soggy.
However, the Crab Cake Eggs Benny was a different story. I originally thought that the crab cake would come on top of the english muffin that bennies usually comes with. But they actually replaced the muffin part with the crab cake. It made the dish small, but VERY tasty. The crab cake’s richness was paired perfectly with the buttery goodness of the avocado. And then of course the egg was poached to absolute perfection… UNF.
Another thing that I loved about the place was our server. He was humorous, nice, and chatty. That’s one thing I consider really important when I’m judging how much I like a restaurant, is by their servers/service. He did an amazing job with our food selection, and generally was a joy to talk to so A+++, Chewies, for hiring dope people.
If you’re looking for a place to brunch in Vancouver, definitely check Chewies out. I know they also have a downtown location as well as the Kitsilano location. You can go to their website to check out their menu and locations !
