Being that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it was only a matter of time before a food cart would pop up and offer all things eggy and waffly. Voila! Enter Yolk’s Breakfast. Known for their organic and locally sourced food items, I knew I had to try them.
This cart is usually parked close to Stadium Skytrain station (Dunsmuir and Beatty), and they’re open Thursday-Friday from 8:30am-2pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-2:30pm.
Some of the menu items include poached egg sandwiches, chicken and waffles, pancakes and all sorts of juices, and side dishes.
A couple of things you should be aware of:
- There’s no seating – food cart = you eat outside. If it’s cold out, your food will get cold.
- There’s usually a line up. I waited over 30 minutes for my meal, so make sure you plan accordingly.
By the time I go there, they were out of the chicken and waffles (sad face), but they had some killer poached egg sandwiches, such as the honey smoked bacon, the hand carved honey ham and the roasted portobello mushroom. I ordered the Hand Carved Honey Ham Poached Egg Sandwich ($6.95) to start.
The sandwich came in a perfectly toasted English muffin. The egg was poached soft (so be careful when eating it’s quite runny!) and it was complimented by fresh spinach and a home-made honey dijon sauce. Loved the zest of the mustard. Each dish has a choice of real Hollandaise sauce or aged white cheddar – I went for the cheddar, it gives it a nice strong flavour. Overall a very satisfying breakfast sandwich.
I was intrigued by the Truffle-Lemon Hash brown Skewer ($2.75). Excellent choice of flavours! The lemon and the truffle oil together really give the hash browns a punch! So delicious. Perfectly crispy, these little guys are a must side dish.
They also have a good variety of drinks on the menu, such as organic orange and apple juice, apple cider and fresh coffee.
I would say this food cart is a winner and a must-try Vancouver dining experience. Follow them on twitter @YolksBreakfast
