Wildebeest is located in Gastown and they have a daring menu focusing on ingredient-driven cooking. Their brunch menu comprises of amazing use of proteins.
The space is pretty cool with its exposed brick walls iconic of historic gastown. Super hip! Servers were really nice and fun to talk to.
Scrambled eggs has bone marrow, and parsley. It is also served with triple-cooked potatoes, toast, and salad.
All that fatty flavourful bone marrow enrobed in the fluffy eggs is a good way to start the day. I thought it could have used a touch more salt to bring the flavours out. I would have liked the potatoes to be more crispy.
Back bacon benedict has a jalapeno & cheddar biscuit, hollandaise, triple cooked potatoes and a side salad.
The sous vide egg is so delicate and incredibly delicious. Look at that egg ooze.
“The Dutch Baby” has cow’s milk ricotta, fresh fruit, and bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup. Once I saw the name on the menu, I had to order it. I’ve had something similar in the states, but was never able to find it in Vancouver till now.
This pancake unlike the one at the Original Pancake House in the states, was dense more like a cake. Sadly, we didn’t like their version of the Dutch Baby.
Overall, the food was alright, but it didn’t impress me too much. We did order only 3 dishes off the menu when there are so many more items. I’ll definitely be back to try some of their other items.
