Restaurant Review: Twisted Fork Bistro, Vancouver, BC

It is only fitting that my absolute most favourite restaurant in the world is the first restaurant I write a review for. Twisted Fork Bistro is a small, cramped, dark gem located on Granville St in Vancouver, British Colombia. I first discovered the Twisted Fork when I was working in Vancouver in the summer of 2009. Back then, not many knew about this place so when I brought visiting friends there we always got a seat by the window, no matter how large the party. Now, apparently, the general consensus is for customers to arrive early, otherwise you may be stuck in a 45 min line.

The Twisted Fork on Granville St, which just happens to be the
 best street in Vancouver - it is curious almalgamation of old town
seediness and modern-city luxury. I loved exploring Granville St.

I can't tell you how excited I am that this place has become popular! I have never eaten dinner at the Twisted Fork, and when I was in Vancouver most people seemed  to agree that their brunch menu was far superior to anything they served at other times. So, if you are in Vancouver, make sure you set aside a morning to have brunch here.

Upon arriving, the first thing you should do is order some coffee. Before coming to this restaurant, I hated coffee (nasty, bitter stuff!) but I took one sip of their french-pressed brew and I fell in love. I have been an avid coffee-drinker ever since!

 As you can see, the bar is a delightful mess of glass and liquor. They offer a variety of drinks, including a few whose ingredients are chosen specifically to treat nasty hangovers (I could use something like that right about now!).

Now onto the food. My all-time favourite is the brioche french toast. Stuffed with bananas, covered in icing sugar, whipped cream, and syrup, this dish is to die for. I have yet to taste any french toast that compares.

If french toast isn't your style, they of course have other dishes that are (almost) just as delicious. Here are some samples:

Eggs benny

Baked Eggs and Bacon

Grilled Cheese and Soup
So, the moral of this blog post? The Twisted Fork Bistro = LOVE
