On a Sunday morning, Collin said he wanted to have sandwiches for brunch. I was searching for Sunday brunch places where serve sandwiches. Although this places is an Italian restaurant, I found they have some bread on their menu, so I asked if this was OK or not. Well, he says fine most of time, and this is not an exception.

La Pentola is a sister restaurant of La Quercia where I believe recently is closed. As this restaurant is at OPUS hotel in Yaletown, I thought it was fine-ish dining, but not so much. People, who ran a marathon, even came in.

We ordered from their lunch and brunch menu.

The souffle was soft and warm, and I liked that. It was probably the first time for me to eat savory souffle. And, I liked that crudo, too. If I can share, I would order again.

His choice, Croissant + Eggs
(Croissant, Scrambled Eggs, Maple Bacon, Butter Lettuce)

My choice, Sardine + Toast
(Sardine, Fried Egg, Swiss Chard, Toast, Salsa Verde)

Collin said there was no special note on croissant dish. For my dish, the toast was a bit oily because of sardine oil. The sardine had a lot of small bones, so if you don’t like that, then don’t order it.

And, an extra picture outside.

There is eggplant terrine on the menu, and I want to try, as I read a blog saying it was so good.
