By invitation we checked out the brunch menu at the District Brasserie in North Vancouver. As suburbers, normally we wouldn’t trek all the way to North Van for food, but a couple of items on the menu intrigued us so we decided to give it a try.

And turns out they are also customers’ and staff favourites at the District, according to restaurant manager Cynthia. But before our plates arrived, we were treated to their home made Cornbread (vs. scones or muffins at some restaurants) with seasonal coulis – at first glance we thought it was hot sauce or ketchup but it’s actually strawberry coulis. The cornbread was in perfect bite size, moist, and the coulis had just the right amount of sweetness. I would’ve liked the sauce to be slightly thicker so it’s almost spreadable, but dipping in was just as good.

There’s a direct correlation between how cold and wet the weather gets, and my craving for warm and rich food. I’m sure I’m not the only one to feel that way.

After a short hike on a chilly Saturday morning, we popped into Burgoo in North Vancouver for a late lunch.

We were a little tired, a little cold, and very hungry. It was well past lunch time.

The décor was much more modern and welcoming than their Main Street location.

We got to eating pretty quickly.

What Went In

I went with the Eggs Burgoo. It’s got three scrambled eggs, served on top of oven baked Kentucky Burgoo (slow cooked lamb, beef, and smoked ham with lima beans, corn, molasses, tomato and okra), biscuits, and melted cheddar.

This gloriously rich dish is a mind numbing explosion of flavours. (more…)
