Fraser Park Restaurant: Truly Hole in the Wall

Foodology April 14, 2011 Brunch, Four Beakers, German, Kid Friendly, South Burnaby

After reading Food For Buddha food blog, they seem to have fallen in love with Fraser Park Restaurant. Since Fraser Park Restaurant is basically in the middle of nowhere, its always hard to find the time to make the trek there. Google Map tells me it would take 30 minutes from my house. Always was a turn off. Since M and I planned to watch Source Code at Metro, I thought it would be perfect to take a trip here.

M drove to Fraser Park in record time, made it there in 15 mins ( beat that google maps! boooya!). On the drive down there, M did not believe there would be any restaurant down in this area. Mostly construction companies and huge warehouses. We got a little bit lost and M got frustrated with me. Once we did arrive, we were super turned off by the exterior….restaurant in the middle of nowhere with lost of construction items everywhere. M had the pissed off Korean look and that basically ruined the mood.

Walking in grumpily, we quickly decided on what to order – beef dip and the deluxe German breakfast.

As we waited patiently waited for our food to arrive, we looked at the decor and was surprised at the amount of people in the restaurant for a weekday lunch.  I can’t imagine the weekend, must be super busy.

M’s Deluxe German Breakfast ($9.95) arrived and his eyes lit up by the large portions and piles of meat.  As you can tell there are A LOT of items in this meal. His mood immediately lit up once he devoured all the meat.

Tis meal contains:

  • Cured Ham
  • 3 egg omelet
  • breakfast sausages
  • Potato fritter
  • Potato wedges
  • Bacon
  • Schnitzel
  • Toast
  • Gravy

Such a long list of items, but M was very very happy. $9.95 for this massive breakfast. No wonder the Germans are so tall and handsome. 😉

I ordered the Beef Dip. I ordered it with salad on the side with italian dressing. The italian dressing comes in little kraft packages, so it is not house made. The salad was nice and fresh and no sign of wilted leaves.

The beef in the beef dip sandwiches were a bit dry, but since you are dunking it into the Gravy anyways, the dryness did not impact the overall taste. The bun is quite soft, so it does clench onto the sauce very well.

M and I both loved the food here. It fulfills al the requirements of being a “hole in the wall” restaurant. a) Crappy exterior b) amazing food c) cheap prices.

I will definitely be visiting again! Anyone want to join me?

Words of Wisdom:

  • Lots of construction around, so be careful
  • Do not let the exterior to deter you from going inside
  • Free Parking
  • Under $10
  • Large portions

    hahaha. I had to balance out all the meat with the salad. It’s a girl thing to do.
    Next time, I will make sure to have the soup and the side mayo !

    I have many visits to make up for my forgetfulness.

  • Good to see you ventured out…it’s quite a trek! Well worth the journey. I tend to get quite stuffed and sleepy every time I go! BTW, you’re right about the Germans except I’m only 5’11” ;).

  • “His mood immediately lit up once he devoured all the meat.”
    A genuine ‘manswer’.
