I have another friend, whose birthday was in early September. I sent a birthday message and told her, “let’s make a plan for dinner or brunch”. We finally set a date at the end of September and had brunch with her husband and her roommate.

The place we went was Forage restaurant. Forage is at Listel Hotel in downtown. They focus on fresh local and sustainable ingredients. The brunch is served until 2pm.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

My choice, BC Spot Prawn and Seafood Chowder
(Soft-poached Egg, Smoked Chicharron, Pork Hock)

I actually liked this. I don’t know if this was the best chowder, as people say, but there is depth, and it was not thin like soup but not too thick like glutenful.

Her choice, Classic Benny
(Back Bacon, Free-range Eggs, Crispy Potatoes, Hollandaise)

Double-fried Pork Cutlet Sandwich
(Fried Egg, Gouda, House-made Pickle, “Thousand Island”)

The sandwich looked good. I want to try that next time when I’m starving! 🙂

Her roommate wanted to try some chowder, in addition to the sandwich, and the small version came like this. It probably was a half price?

We were talking and talking so much while and after eating and didn’t realize the brunch time was way over until some family came in and staff said it was closed. Thanks for letting us stay longer!

The Dine Out event is held right now and they attend to it, so you might want to check out their menu.

On the BC Day long weekend, Collin had a fay off, and we went hiking together. As he said he never hiked Quarry Rock in Deep Cove, we went there. It is one of the easier hiking trail to me.

After coming down, we went to this cafe to have brunch. Honey Doughnuts & Goodies is famous for their huge honey doughnuts, but they also serve lunch, such as soup, sandwiches, etc.

We ordered from the today’s special menu.

Eggs Bennie
(with Hash Browns and Fruit)

In the middle of July, I went hiking with my friends. A few weeks back, the snow still remained on the trailhead where we planned, and we changed to the lower location to hike. We re-visited the trail this time if the snow was gone. And, it was!

After we hiked for a couple of hours, we went to downtown Vancouver to have brunch. I relied on my friends where to go. The place we headed was Subeez Cafe Restaurant Bar. It is closer to Yaletown.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

Sockeye Salmon Baguette
(Arugula, Pickled Onion, with Citrus Mayonnaise)

Garden Vegetable Burger
(Vegetable and Brown Rice Patty, Arugula, Roasted Tomato, Pea Shoots, Cucumber with Chipotle Hummus and Garlic Mayonnaise)

My choice, Eggs Benjamin
(Poached eggs, Smoked Salmon and Hollandaise on an English muffin, Hash Browns and West Coast Greens)

On that day, I didn’t feel like eating sandwiches, so I chose egg benny with smoked salmon. I always think that you can’t expect egg benny to be best in town rather than whether poached egg is cooked perfectly and Hollandaise sauce is nicely done or not, can you? I’m dreaming to eat the best egg benny in Canada one day. 🙂
