Yolk’s Restaurant and Commissary

Yolk’s Breakfast was a popular food truck located outside the Stadium skytrain station. Although I never visited their food truck before I had always heard that their chicken and waffles were really good! They’ve opened an actual store now on E Hastings and Clark Drive. It feels really out of the way there but it seems like they have a large enough following to attract customers (like my co workers and I!). The outside of the building is all blue like their food truck. The inside looks like it could be renovated some more but it has an old school diner kind of feel. Water is self serve!

Chicken and Waffles

So I got the Chicken and Waffles and it was huge!!! I was not expecting this much chicken… maybe half as much. The fried chicken was crispy but wasn’t really seasoned and there was a lot of maple syrup so it ended up tasting sweet and crunchy. I think there was supposed to be gravy but now that I think about it, I didn’t notice any or they didn’t have enough. After a while I thought it was too sweet. I think I’ll ask for syrup on the side next time if I get this again.  The waffles were alright but I had too much syrup by then so it just tasted sweet and I think the one on the bottom was getting soggy.

Yolk's Breakfast Pancakes

These were their Buttermilk Pancakes which came with double smoked bacon, ham or English bangers. The pancakes were soft and kind of chewy? My co worker said they felt really dense and she was full quickly.

Yolk's BreakfastThis was the special of the day: Fraser Valley Duck Confit with pork crackling, spinach, poached egg and orange marmalade. There is also the option of getting two eggs.

Yolk's Breakfast

This was the Double Smoked Bacon Eggs Benedict Style (Two Eggs Double Everything) with real Hollandaise and their Truffle-Lemon Hashbrowns. The bacon was nice and crispy, the English muffin was crunchy and the eggs were nicely poached. The hashbrowns were crispy on the outside, well seasoned and addicting! I don’t think you can go wrong ordering this!

I think the chicken and waffles fell below my expectations and I’d heard a lot about them before! And I love fried chicken! I wish they’d work on their decor too but I’m here for the food! They’re currently not open on Mondays and Tuesdays.
