La Mezcaleria in Gastown (and Commercial Drive) is one of my favorite Mexican joint in Vancouver. So you can imagine how excited I was when I heard La Mezcal was offering Brunch Wednesday to Sunday until 3pm! No more rushing to wake up on the […]
Eastern Pearl Seafood Restaurant in Port Coquitlam is one of the newest additions of quality Chinese cuisine in the area. It is located on the corner of Lougheed Highway and Shaughnessy Street (6102-2850 Shaughnessy). It’s a nice change to see flavorful pairings and quality ingredients. Because let’s face it, Grand Palace really isn’t cutting it with its over priced dishes and poor services.
The restaurant itself was clean and bright. Service is friendly. But be prepared to wait. The dim sum menu has many great selection ranging from congee, dumplings, deep fried to sweet treats. I even quite like their dinner menu and set dinners. That will be for another post!
Fish slice congee with vegetables.
Shrimp dumplings. Plenty of big bouncy shrimp albeit the skin is a little thick.
Marinated duck feet with taro
Chiu Chow pork and peanut dumplings
Fish paste rice cannelloni
Deep Fried Salt and Pepper tofu

Jam Cafe Beatty Vancouver quietly open doors recently at the old Cafe Medina location at 556 Beatty Street. Line ups start at 30 minutes without a grand opening party or media event. If you jam is brunch, there are over 7 types of egg benny, red velvet pancakes and veggie and charlie bowls that’s bigger than your head! Shock factor alone will make you wait patiently for your meal. Plus, you won’t need to take a ferry to try it! Why not?!
The breakfast diner is very Canadian with moose antlers, baseball catcher’s mask, vintage items sourced from Victoria, a periodic table with brunch staples on the wall. Owners Jim Walmsley and Mike Deas-Dawlish has put a lot of renovation work into the space. You can barely trace it’s previous predecessors here.
My morning wake up calls for an Americano. Straight up with a touch of cream. Brewed with JJ Beans coffee beans.
Breakfast Jam 🍳🍰 cake and veggie bowls bigger than your head with a side of good company. If your looking for a decadent morning, the red velvet pancakes with a drizzle of cream cheese icing is calling your name. 〰👻 instanomss . . . . . #instanomss #onthetable #mycommontable #dessert #tablesituation #美味しい #おいしい #tcmlivingwell #hypefeast

Red Velvet Pancakes 13.95: A decadent red velvet pancake that isn’t too sweet. Drizzled with cream cheese icing. Remember to ask for extra icing! Otherwise, it gets kind of dry. Or I would recommend asking for some pancake syrup. The two also goes well together.
Little Veggie Bowl 12: The name is a little deceiving. We originally pictured a glorious salad bowl filled with seasonal greens. Instead this is a hash brown bowl. Hash with crumbled biscuits, hash browns (of course), peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheddar cheese topped with mushroom gravy then topped with two sunny side up eggs. Order the small bowl if you are planning on eating this yourself. Sharing between less than three people, don’t even think about getting the big boy.
There are so many other things I want to try here at Jam Cafe Beatty – there just isn’t enough stomach space. I have to remember to wear stretchy pants and book five workout classes right after. I’m looking forward to the Steelhead Benedict (two poached eggs, smoked Steelhead salmon with classic hollandaise over a toasted english muffin. Topped with capers & green onion); Fried Chicken Benedict (two poached eggs, whole fried chicken breast, classic hollandaise topped with roasted corn salsa over a toasted english muffin); and Chicken N’ Waffles (waffle topped with a boneless buttermilk fried chicken breast, house made pork gravy, a sunny side egg, and green onions).
I’m greedy like that. Yup.

Crepe Montagne Whistler is an authentic French Creperie. Located by IGA in Whistler Village, this cafe is perfect for brunch on the heated patio. Service is friendly. Food can be slow depending on traffic and busyness. The atmosphere is casual and there are always long waits. Crepe Montage specializes in crepes, French toast, egg benedicts and omlettes. But given the name Crepe Montagne, how could you not order some sweet or savory crepes?
The savoury crepes are made with buckwheat. Sweet crepes are made with white flour. The portions are huge and it is quite filling. So it justifies for the price points avg $10-14.
We ordered a few breakfast crepes: Nordique (1 egg, cheese, tomatoes) and Bobsleigh (tomatoes, ham or Canadian back bacon and cheese). French Toast, Pesto Egg Benedict. Fresh pestro sauce with a lot of mushrooms, medium poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Served with hashbrowns and fresh fruits.
French Toast is fluffy and not too greasy. I like the sprinkle of confectioner sugar!
Sometimes there are Crepe Montage Whistler Groupon Deals during the afternoon. So be sure to check back. I highly recommend anyone spending a weekend getaway in Whistler to try this delicious French creperie! It is one of the best brunch restaurant in Whistler.
