On one Saturday, I was going hiking somewhere, but when I woke up, I noticed that my iPhone beeped a lot silently. When I looked, there were bunch of messages going on for my work related. There was nothing I can do at that moment, so I just waited for a while. By the time everything settled and things that I had to do were done, it was past noon. So, I sent a text message to my friend if she was interested in brunch with me.

Thinking about the time to be ready to leave home and to get to the restaurant during lunch hour, we decided to go to Medina Cafe. It is in the part of Gastown, close to Stadium Skytrain station. I hadn’t been for quite a while since my last visit, so I was happy to go there.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

Americano

My friend’s choice, Tagine
(2 Poached Eggs, Spicy Tomato Stew, Red Pepper, Merguez Sausage, Moroccan Olives, Cilantro. Hummus and Raita. Grilled Foccaccia.)

The sausage has great spicy flavor, and I liked it, although I usually can’t handle those spiciness. Hummus and Rita was yogurty dip, and I personally didn’t like it.

My choice, Fricasse
(2 Fried Eggs, Braised Short Ribs, Roasted Potatoes, Balsamic Onions, Watercress, Applewood Cheddar. Grilled Foccaccia.)

This was flavourful. Short ribs and sauce and egg yolk with foccaccia bread were good combinations to eat together.

Collin wanted to go to Medina Cafe again and try the dish that I had last time. As same as the last time, we waited to be seated for 30 min or so, and finally we were taken to Chambar side. Chambar is a sister restaurant of Medina located to the next door and only open for dinner.

We have heard there are long line up for brunch at Medina Cafe, in downtown Vancouver, and we wondered how the dish tasted.

It was about 30 min or more to wait for the seat, and finally we ordered.

First, waffle with mixed berry compote came, although we thought we told the waffle would be after meal.
