Best egg dish in Vancouver/Victoria

Bigr72 Jun 25, 2012 06:04 PM

We are landing tomorrow in Vancouver for a couple of days, then to Victoria. What/where are the best egg dishes? Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Chicken, duck, or quail.

    For breakfast I really like the chorizo scrambler from Caffe Barney on Granville and the three cheese omelette w/ chorizo added from Joe's Grill.

    I love a well done aji-tama/ni-tamago/ajitsuke tamago (soft boiled marinated egg) served with ramen, but unfortunately I've had consistency issues with the eggs at a lot of places. However, if you go to Santouka and get the Toro-Niku w/ the egg, it will be a pretty happy meal.

    My favourite place for chawanmushi and tamago (Kimura) is no more.

    Can we count cream puffs? If so, Beard Papa.

    Now just to find a good place for roti telur or salted duck eggs.

      We are probably veering off into territory that the OP never intended to go, but:
      The salty egg yolk steamed bun at Sea Harbour in Richmond is quite awesome.

      John's Restaruant in Victoria is known for its breakfasts and its Bennies. Nothing earth shatteringly original but they can perfectly poach an egg to your preference and have a mean Hollandaise sauce.

        Does pizza count? I had a great fontina, asparagus, blackpepper and quail egg pizza at Pizzeria Barbarella a couple of weeks ago. Phone ahead to find out if it is on the menu as it was experimental the time I had it.

            Here's an egg-cellent (sorry) compendium of local egg dishes and their restos ......

              No fair, LR, those are by no means all local dishes -- I was getting all excited till I started clicking on the links. A few interesting suggestions for sure though, especially the pineapple upside down pancakes at The Well (though not suitable for the OP!).

                I should have mentioned that in my post (too late to edit). GE is correct, not all the restos in that write-up are local to Vancouver, but majority of them are.

              Pork belly at Red Wagon on Hastings. Drool. You're well situated to go as you'll be here on a weekday. ETA oops not poultry obviously -- my bad if you don't do the red meat thing.

                Three soft boiled eggs & two croissants from Patisserie Lebeau-fresh squeezed OJ on the side.

                Served weekend AM's @ Casa Salmon deep in the Heart of Sylvan Kitisilano-admittance by invitation only though.
