La Brasserie Street Food Truck: Nom Nom

Diana Chan April 13, 2011 Downtown, Food Carts, Four Beakers, Streetcart

Since Ursu Food Truck was not open yet, I thought I would take a stroll down to La Brasserie Street (Food Truck, not an actual “street”. They are in the location where Kimono Koi Crepes use to be.

The cart is brought to you by none other than La Brasserie. The name says it all doesn’t it? I’ve actually never been to the restaurant before but I’ve heard good things. The picture of the sandwich does look amazing!

When you arrive, you are greeted by 2 friendly men. Wait a minute one of those guys look familiar (looks through old photos). Hey! He use to run the Kimono Koi Crepes truck! Interesting yes?

Their menu is super simple with one item – their Brass Chicken Sandwich ($6.25). You basically have no choice, which is not necessarily a bad thing! That means the quality should be good!

At first glace, I was disappointed by what I saw. Large bun, little meat and fried onion things. Seriously it does not look like the advertised picture.

Inside this Brass Chicken Sandwich is beer brined rotisserie chicken in gravy, with fried onions on a buttermilk bun. I didn’t have high hopes for this sandwich until I took the first bite out of the sandwich. Wow. This reminded me of thanksgiving dinner in a sandwich, without the cranberry and the stuffing.

Tender chicken meat doused in savory delicious gravy complemented with crispy sweet taste of the onions. Oh! I’m in love describing it again. The bun is quite soft and squishy, it was perfect with the delicate meat.

One thing to be aware of is that there is a bit of flour still on the top and bottom of the bun, so if you are wearing black clothes, check your chest if you left any crumbs there.  ( You never know!). Also, remember to grab a napkin too because if you are just digging into the sandwich, you may get gravy on your face. (I did and it was delicious!).

Overall, great sandwich for $6.25. Definitely worth it in my opinion.

Words of wisdom:

  • Must go to Food Cart!
  • Cash Only
  • Under $10
  • Closest Skytain – City Centre (Canada Line) , Granville (Expo Line)

    you’re right! it IS the same guy from kimono koi crepes. i thought he looked familiar too but i just assumed he was from La Brasserie, the restaurant. didn’t you love the sandwich?? i also fell in love with the tender chicken and soft bread. i love the fact that they were really generous with the napkins… it was a very windy day on their grand opening, and we ate our sandwiches outside.

    So this is what the KKC guy end up doing!

    I was very impressed with La Brasserie’s chicken when I visited last summer. Definitely look forward to trying their burger!

    They have a cart now?! I must try.

    You need to try their poutine – it’s delicious. Omg, the bacon.

    @munchkie when I went it wasn’t a windy day, but I could grab as many napkins as I wanted but I only grabbed one. Totally could have used 3

    @joyce It’s so funny because La Brasserie is a bit far for me, but the food truck is closer for me to get too. How ironic.

    @Elaine I know right? No wonder they got rid of KKC. If you loved their chicken, you should love their sandwich

    @Miranda I will one day make my way there and I will try their poutine!
