What are your brunch plans for the weekend?
I first heard about Yolk’s when their food truck was driving around Main Street and when they were getting an immense amount of media exposure. I don’t know what took me so long to try them but I finally went to their Hastings location on a Saturday brunch hour. Since they were almost about to close by the time I got there, the restaurant was quite empty and the servers were getting ready to get off. Regardless, the servers gave us their full attention and were extremely nice and patient; I didn’t feel like I was being rushed out. Normally, servers would be impatient if you’re taking up too much of their break or closing time so the service at Yolk’s was very good.
Poached Free-Range Egg Sandwiches with Honey Carved Ham, Spinach, Dijon, One Egg, Aged White Cheddar and Truffle Lemon Hash Brown
I know you have to pay extra for their truffle lemon hash brown, but it is so worth it. You’ll also feel heavier afterwards but it’s extremely hearty.
I didn’t find anything too special about their honey carved ham, so I’ll just stick with the more traditional types of eggs benny.
Poached Free-Range Egg Sandwiches with Portobello Mushroom, Aioli, Fresh Arugula, Two Eggs, and Real Hollandaise in Benedict Style.
This was amazing. The English muffins were not drenched and soaked with hollandaise and the flavours from the arugula and portobello were heavenly.
Their hollandaise was quite creamy and I liked that it wasn’t too sour from the lemon juice. Needless to say, their egg was cooked perfectly.
I didn’t feel stuffed and heavy after I was finished. Their bennies were filling but it was just the right amount to keep you satisfied for the morning, instead of making you go home and take a nap.
Brunch was “egg”cellent.
