When I say “hotel breakfast”, what comes to mind? I would think of a la carte standard affairs, or varied quality of “continental breakfast” from 2-3 star hotels.

We are lucky in Vancouver in a sense that there are many hotels offering delicious, not your typical breakfast/brunch options, e.g. Tableau, Mosaic, Yew, Blvd. Enter the new player, H2 Rotisserie & Bar at Westin Bayshore, which offers a weekend brunch buffet.

Brunch Buffet at H2 Rotisserie & Bar

I was invited to sample H2’s brunch buffet and wow, it was a big spread. It certainly has the typical brunch items such as eggs, pancakes, waffles, bacon and sausages. But what caught my eyes were the following:

Rotisserie chicken carving station – H2 prides itself for its rotisserie chicken so I wasn’t surprised to see it at brunch. Walk up to the chef on duty and they will get you a slice (or two) of white and/or dark meat.

Dim sum/congee station – it serves up har gow (shrimp dumplings), siu mai (pork dumplings), BBQ pork buns, and sticky rice. Oh you can also build your own congee bowl, but it’s located in a different section of the buffet line.

Made to order french toast station – they literally soaked the bread in the yummy custard, heat up the pan with some butter, and made me my French toast right in front of me.

As part of the Dine Out Vancouver festivities, a new component called “Street Food City” was introduced this year. It’s a gathering of a number of food carts in Vancouver at the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza for just three days during the DOV period. Thankful to have a boss who enjoys food as much as I do, we made a trip down to Street Food City as part of our team building exercise.

After checking out all the food carts, we have decided to try La Brasserie Street. My boss actually has tried it before, but he did recommend this cart and said he would have it again. For me, sadly I haven’t done my part in visiting all the food carts in town, even though my office is close to many of them, so I was happy to give this a try.

La Brasserie Street is a food cart that belongs to La Brasserie on Davie. Its menu is simple. One sandwich, the Brass Chicken Sandwich, and one dessert, its “World’s Best” Butter Tart. Someone may think that the offering is limited and it’s boring. In my opinion, if you want to be successful, all you need is one item on your menu, and this, is exactly that.

We each ordered the sandwich combo (sandwich + drink) and a butter tart. Three items come to $10 including tax. Genius! Easy way to manage transactions and an easy up-sell for those who pay with a $10 bill (imagine “would you like to add the ‘World’s Best’ Butter Tart to your meal? Everything will come to a total of $10) – OK maybe that’s not their intent so I’ll take off my marketing hat now.

The Brass Chicken Sandwich was very good. It has pieces of meat from their famous rotisserie chicken, along with gravy and crispy onion strings. The chicken was a mix of chicken breast and thighs, and some of my chicken came with skin. (more…)
