Located in the heart of the West End, La Brasserie is a relaxed 35-seat restaurant that serves authentic Franco-German cuisine.
La Brasserie was one of my favourite brunch places and I was super sad that it closed down temporarily years ago.
William Wang purchased La Brasserie in January of 2015. Driven by his love for the restaurant and news that it was meant to close its doors indefinitely, Wang took over this small West End gem with hopes of renewing the quality and consistency it had previously been known for.
La Brasserie offers dinner daily and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The menu still has the same favourites and even the chef is the same.
Using high quality, locally sourced ingredients, all of the dishes served at La Brasserie are made to order. I love sitting by the bar since thats where all the action happens in the kitchen.
A good brunch starts with brewed coffee, sugar and milk. Free refills, so I always have at least 2 cups.
As I sipped on my coffee and chatted with CanucksGirl, we watched our brunch being put together. I always admire all the hard work that goes into the meal.
Chicken Mornay Crepes has pulled rotisserie chicken, mushroom, Mornay sauce, gruyére, and topped with salad. It’s a very rich and satisfying dish since I love cheese.
Suckling Pig and Eggs has confit potato, seasonal vegetables, poached eggs, and hollandaise. Another great dish and the suckling pig is very flavourful. Eggs poached perfectly.
Brasserie Burger has ground hanger steak, white cheddar, bacon, crispy onion, truffled aioli, and frites. It’s a classic item to order here and people always marvel at the amount of crispy onions they can stack on top. Also ask them for their house-made ketchup. The burger was so big that I had a hard time eating it, but tasted really good.
For those who are gluten-free or have dietary restrictions, they can make some adjustments to the menu, so you can have a good time.
Overall, the food was as good as before. I’ll be back for more.
