Ready for another brunch weekend?
A few weeks back, I went to White Rock with a group of Instagram girls for brunch. I don’t usually go all the way to White Rock for anything so I was quite interested to hear about a good brunch spot there. The Wooden Spoon was busy by the time we got there at 11am and we were lucky that we made reservations. Bless them for taking reservations.
The Wooden Spoon is a hip and rustic restaurant with the occasional wooden tones and white painted walls (quite photogenic). Everything was very pretty and it was a very comfortable setting for brunch or a late lunch. All of their dishes are freshly made with locally sourced ingredients, but enough about that, let’s move onto the actual dishes.
French Toast with Peach Slices, Granola, Apple Compote and Salted Caramel
Presentation was impressive and so were the flavours.
I thought this would have been incredibly sweet but it was quite decent and enjoyable. I only had one bite of this and it reminded me of my mom’s apple crumble. It wast just the right amount of sweetness for a brunch without making you feel too sugar high or heavy after you were done.
Crab Benny with Warm Rock Crab on a Buttermilk Biscuit, Hollandaise, Dill, Capers, Two Poached Eggs, Potato Fritters and Chickpea Salad
I’m so used to the usual arugula salad and roasted potatoes on the side of my eggs but having chickpeas and potato fritters were much better than the usual. Their potato fritters were perfect, crunchy on the outside with a soft and warm interior.
Crab bennys are go-to brunch orders if the restaurant serves them. I can’t say that I was incredibly amazed by their crab bennys but it was pretty good with the buttermilk biscuit. The hollandaise sauce didn’t soak through so I liked the extra crunch texture to the biscuit foundation.
