ANCORA VANCOUVER | BRUNCH MENU

ANCORA VANCOUVER | BRUNCH MENU

Last time I was at Ancora was during last year’s Dine Out Vancouver. I was still pregnant and now baby is almost 3 months old. To celebrate Motherhood and my friend’s pregnancy we decided to head over to Ancora for brunch! I love the bright open space and how roomy it is. The restaurant isn’t too loud and is perfect to bring a baby.

 

But. first. coffee.

 

ANCORA BRUNCH VANCOUVER NOMSS FOOD BLOG

Brunch service is only available on the weekends.

 

WINDBERRY FARM CHICKEN AND WAFFLES 20: spiced syrup, avocado puree, house bacon and botanical greens. While we thought fried chicken and waffles would be heavy and a bit of an indulgent, this c&w was well battered and not greasy whatsoever.

 

DUCK CONFIT CASSOULET 25: Peruvian beans with two poached eggs and kale salad. If you are looking for a more substantial entree, this one’s for your. Flavourful and gratifying.

 

Listen to your Mom and eat your vegetables. We like a side of crispy brussels sprouts!

 

PERUVIAN STYLE PAELLA 21: black cod croquettes, chorizo, Peruvian corn, shellfish, one poached egg with paprika aioli. I love this dish and its departure from an everyday Brunch menu item. This was deliciously made with hearty wild black rice.

 

BLUE AND GREY 12: I never say no to anything Earl Grey and Lavender especially when it’s a Earl Grey, blueberry and lavender ice cream with Earl Grey shortbread!!

 

If you are looking for a place for Brunch on this weekend, I highly recommend you try Ancora’s menu! Let me know what you think and leave a comment below!

Four Winds Brewing – this liquid sunshine is like summer in a bottle. Deliciously brewed in reverence of the old world sour wheat ales of Berlin, this Berliner-style Weisse is light in body with a faint earthy mineral essence. Sour in nature and refreshingly effervescent.

Grand Seasons Coquitlam | 四季 Chinese Restaurant

grand seasons coquitlam Nomss

四季 Grand Seasons Chinese Restaurant is a humble diner in Coquitlam. It is located just across from the Burquitlam SkyTrain station at 555 Clarke Road. Our friends introduced this place to us after we were complaining about eating at the same restaurants in Coquitlam Tri-Cities area. Everything was pretty promising on our first visit but then quickly declined from there on. We came here three times and probably will not go back.

grand seasons coquitlam Nomss

Salt and Pepper Deep Fried Tofu: Crispy outside with jalapeno and garlic. Great with a side of congee.

grand seasons coquitlam Nomss

Century Egg and Salty Pork Congee: A nice consistency of water to rice ratio in this congee. However, there was not a lot ingredients and I like Neptune Wonton’s pillowy congee base much, much more,

 

grand seasons coquitlam Nomss

Stir Fry Beef Rice Noodles: A nice balance of flavour however this dish was to greasy and lacked heat from the wok.

grand seasons coquitlam Nomss

Spicy Marinated Jelly Fish with Sliced Beef Shank: This was one of my favorite dishes. I had ordered it a few times. However, if I had to choice, I think East Pearl in Port Coquitlam does it better. Their jelly fish has a better mouth feel and bouncy texture compared to Grand Seasons which is a little soggy.

Overall, Grand Seasons is suitable for a quick bite to satisfy the hunger. They lack consistency in presentation and execution. Sometimes the fishes are still dirty with a greasy film – that alone is a deal breaker!
