Vancouver Restaurant: Medina Cafe
The best part about having visitors and family come visit, is being able to explore the city and spend time trying new places. When my "sister" from London came for the new year, I took a day off work so I could spend time with her. She wanted to go downtown Vancouver and suggested we try Medina Cafe.
I vaguely had heard of the name of the restaurant in passing but not much else. Perhaps it was one of those brunch restaurants that would normally have a line up out the door. Luckily for us since everyone was back to work, our wait was not very long, maybe 20 minutes instead of an hour. That is the trick for those restaurants who do not take reservations and have a first come first serve policy. Just go to them on your day off!
The Medina Cafe Menu had such unique items with a Mediterrean or Middle Eastern flair. It was a difficult decision as to what to try. Everything on the menu looked tasty and I would definitely return. I ended up going for the Harissa Burger with two fried eggs on top of a pita with beef, hummous, baba ganoush. It was a gourmet breakfast and soo super flavorful!
If you come to Vancouver and are staying downtown and want a unique brunch, check out Medina Cafe. If you are in a rush, they also have waffles to order on the go. #Yummy
