Still talking about food in September, Collin and I decided to go for brunch on the last weekend of September. I was searching for a place the night before the weekend. I didn’t feel like eating sandwiches, and there wasn’t a place where I eager to go.

So, for my curiosity, because everyone seems to like this restaurant, I chose Hawksworth Restaurant. They are located in Rosewood Hotel Georgia across from the Vancouver Art Gallery. There is a cafe beside them, which I have been a few times. Both the restaurant and the cafe are owned by a same person.

We didn’t make a reservation, but we managed to get a seat right away. The restaurant was packed, so it is probably recommended for a reservation.

I was surprised by the price of the coffee. It was expensive to me for one person. (It might be charged per table?) Well, I liked my choice of food, though.

I asked Collin to come with me to winter sports shops in Kitsilano one weekend in September. I couldn’t find something that I wanted, so we decided to go for brunch nearby. We walked around, and I remembered there was a restaurant that a finalist of Top Chef Canada second season opened.

Fable Kitchen is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard street. Like their name means, you can feel all ingredients are delivered from farm to your table. The menu seems to change quite a bit, which is understandable if they want to serve what is the best of the season.

We ordered from their brunch menu. As Collin knows their manager, we got some complimentary side dish. It was very nice of him! 🙂

Both bacon and sausage were tasty. Bacon was so crispy, and homemade sausage was well-seasoned. And, both sauce was matched to each one. Sauce was more like jam, and I think the one for sausage was sun-dried tomato jam, but I can’t remember.

What I liked was their salad. These days, most of the restaurants serve just mix green salad that is packaged in the bag, which I can even make at home. Their salad was simple but included a lot of different kinds and taste was good. Don’t get me wrong. Of course, halibut cake was good as well as homemade hash. 🙂

I hadn’t been attracted to their brunch menu a few weeks back when I looked at their website, but I was wrong! I enjoyed their food.
