My first encounter with Yolk’s restaurant was in 2012. I went to their food cart and had a wonderful experience. Finally I’m back to try their temporary restaurant.
What I ate:
Hand Carved Honey Ham with fresh spinach and yolk’s made Dijon, 2 eggs, muffin with real hollandaise and truffle-lemon hash brown
  • 8/10
  • The egg was perfectly cooked and the hollandaise went well with it
  • the muffin was not too hard to cut into and accompanied the egg well
  • the hash brown were on the sour side and I would have preferred if the potatoes were crispier
Beignets with salted caramel dip and dusted with icing sugar
  • 7/10
  • The beignets were on the doughy side
  • They were luckily not to sweet
  • They taste better dipped into the salted caramel dip without it, it would taste too floury
Chicken and Waffles – organic fried chicken, Belgian waffles, chicken gravy and Canadian maple syrup
  • 8/10
  • The waffles were made perfectly – not too sweet and were nicely crunchy
  • The fried chicken was slightly over fried, wasn’t as moist as I would have preferred (chicken was crispy)
  • The chicken gravy lacked chicken flavour and did not add much flavour to the dish overall
  • But the waffles went really well with the chicken
Things to Improve on: Quality control
Summary: Although it is on the more expensive side, it is great place for brunch. The eggs are always made perfectly and the food has some creative elements.
