Heritage Asian Eatery offers delicious Brunch and lunch options with Asian flavors in downtown Vancouver. It is located at 1108 West Pender Street next to Melu Juice. I’ve been meaning to come back for a while now since their grand opening party.
This 40 seater, 600 sqft counter service restaurant offers a casual and communal atmosphere. I love the menu options of steam boas with ‘Peking Duck’, ‘Pork Jowl’ and veggie options like ‘Mixed Mushroom’ Crêpes. And lest we forget their addicting five spice chicken wings!
But you are like me and do not work downtown, you are out of luck getting your hands on a bao on the weekend. On the weekend they offer a Brunch menu that does not include their infamous Baos. I wish they would bring this into rotation!
I love the Asian twist on brunch with locally sourced ingredients.
The Big One 19: Includes the Works of green onion pancake, three poached eggs, potato rosti, duck and pork belly. I would order this to share. It is one rich and heavy dish.
Five Spice Chicken Wings 5: Deliciously crispy skin that’s well rendered with just the right amount of salt and spices!
Golden Mantou with Matcha Condensed Milk 6: Golden fried steamed mantou buns served with a matcha green tea infused condensed milk dipping sauce.
I can’t wait to go back for more wings and baos!

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 […]
OLO Restaurant Victoria is an urban farm to table eatery in Chinatown at 509 Fisgard Street. Since the last time we were on Vancouver Island, the award winning Ulla closed and rebranded itself as a chic approachable spot perfect for brunch and late night. Executive Chef & Co-Owner Brand Holmes and Sahara Tamarin continues the same philosophy of sustainability, locally sourced and farm fresh ingredients on to your plates.
I love the stylish exposed brick interior, faux wooden posts, and the abstract wood nest chandeliers that frame the restaurant. Canned provisions, wheat grass and cacti warms the entrance.
The staff are warm and welcoming. They are genuine and attentive. Brunch menu is offered daily (not just on weekends)! Hallelujah! Dinner offers five course tasting menu for $55 per person (vegetarian/vegan option for $45 per person).
The menu is concise and thoughtful. Each dish is eye candy with depth of flavors, colors and textures.
Buttermilk Biscuits 4: We started Sunday morning with these delicious airy, melt in your mouth buttery biscuits. I love that they not very dense with a bit of crunch. Served with cultured butter and seville orange marmalade.
Smoked Wild Salmon 15: poached eggs to your liking (soft golden yolk for me please), crispy roesti (hash browns) with a tender center, pickled onion, yogurt, radish and nasturtium. This is easily the best smoked salmon one could hope for at brunch!
Lamb Sausage and Fried Eggs 14: sunny side up eggs, tomato sauce, seasonal greens, jalapeno, charred sourdough toast. The lamb sausage is hearty and flavorful without being too gamey. A satisfying dish without the 3pm food coma crash.
While we waited for dessert to arrival. I took a stroll to OLO’s herb garden in the back. A cute space getting ready for patio and private events. Seeing the abundance of fresh greens makes you appreciate farm to table / garden to table a tad more.
I want to grow my own herb garden at home too; but I kill cacti. So scratch that.
Souffle Pancake 11: Airy. Pillowy. Soft. Served with honey yogurt with black plum and rhubarb sauce. Tart and not too sweet. Just the way I like it!
Not a sweet tooth? No problem! This fried dough of deliciousness also comes with bacon, cheese fondue and green garlic.
I could have easily ordered the Honey and Yogurt Panna Cotta with blueberry compote and shortbread too; had we not already reversed space for one last coconut milk iced latte before hitting the ferries!

Brunch at Cafe Medina is always a good idea! It is one of my favorite brunch in Vancouver. The “new” Cafe Medina at Richards Street by Library Square now sits more people in one space. Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu still has crowd favorites but have hadded some new menu items.
Take the Paella for example – Baked egg with curried orzo, Hungarian chorizo, zuchhini, red pepper, roasted corn and grano padano. Loved the perfectly cooked egg with a runny yolk. The orzo has a nice texture and bite.

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.
