Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant

For the last four years my sister has come out to Vancouver in October to join her husband at a conference and visit with me. It’s become a tradition that the last place we visit before they get back on a plane is Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant, reputed to have one of the best […]

Yew Seafood + Bar at the Four Seasons

Here in Vancity, we are incredibly lucky to have a wealth of really passionate chefs. Chefs who go above and beyond for what they believe in, and aren’t just about the business of running a restaurant. One such Chef is the Executive Chef at Yew, Ned Bell. Now, Ned is passionate about sustainable seafood, as […]

Tuc Craft Kitchen

Tuc Craft Kitchen is one of those places that has been on our list for months. We’ve heard a ton of buzz about it… but it was only recently that we had the opportunity to check it out for ourselves. Normally, we here at Brunchcouver like to travel in packs–the more people you take with […]

Provence Marinaside

Steps from the Seawall, Provence Marinaside is a Bright Spot for Brunch   On any given weekend day there is a hustle and bustle among the urban dwellers in Yaletown at the foot of Davie Street and Marinaside Crescent. Young families are out, older couples stroll along the Seawall, and friends gather to share stories […]

Belgard Kitchen

Two years ago, I walked into the space at 55 Dunlevy for the first time. My reaction was strong, and immediate. It was love at first sight. I was there doing a piece for Vancity Buzz on Vancouver Urban Winery, which is housed in this historical building. The first of its kind, it’s a fully-functioning […]

The Fish House

Elegance Never Goes Out of Style There are a few places in every city that deserve the title, “iconic”, and The Fish House is one of those places. When I first moved to Vancouver in 1992, it already had that reputation for quality, freshness and innovation with seafood. In all the years that have passed, […]

Chill Winston

Chilling on a Sunny Sunday in Gastown Chill Winston, located in the very epicentre of Gastown, is well-known for its patio; large, comfortable, and true to its namesake. However, if you’re going to drop by for brunch, and I heartily recommend you do, then take a chance on one of their inside tables. The inside […]


There’s a new brunch in town, kids! Of course, there’s always new brunch spots opening up in the city and beyond, but it’s not too often that we get in to check a place out even before they’ve had their grand opening. C-Prime is the newly re-branded restaurant in the Century Plaza Hotel (the one […]

Exile Bistro

It’s a good time to be a vegetarian in Vancouver. I remember walking into a burger joint a few years back, and seeing literally nothing on the menu for me to eat. The only attempt was a “vegetarian sandwich,” which was basically a burger, without the patty. Um, no. Lame! There are very few places […]

Catch 122

Catch 122 Is a Delicious Conundrum One of the challenges of being a food blogger is that you only have but the one stomach. Whenever I go to check out a new place, I like to take at least one other person with me, and we usually divide and conquer. We’ll each order something different, […]
