I haven’t tried nearly as many food trucks in Vancouver as I would like so when Marc Smith asked me to join him during his 30 Day Adventures: Food Truck Edition, I had a hard time picking our meet-up location. However, I am a big fan of breakfast and after reading food bloggers praise Yolk’s, I knew we had to make that our destination.
Parked outside Stadium SkyTrain station downtown from 7:30am until 1:00pm Monday to Friday, Yolk’s offers up creatively delicious breakfasts on the go. They are known for their free-range egg sandwiches but we were there at about 11:45am and selected items from their brunch menu. I went with the Croque-Madame Muffin (brioche bread, carved ham, béchamel sauce, Gruyere, poached free-range yolk) and Marc went with the Brioche French Toast Sandwich (double smoked bacon, fresh mint, local berries, maple whipped cream, vanilla syrup).
Marc’s french toast was $9.75 and the Croque-Madam was two for $7.55 (or $4 each). I had already had a large breakfast that morning so I would have ordered a few more items, which will just have to wait until next time. I’d like to fully commit with either their Tempura-Panko Avocado Sandwich (poached free-range egg, fresh cilantro & lime hollandaise) for $6.95 or the Full Combo Breakfast for $10 (free-range egg sandwich, organic potato skewer with lemon and truffle + organic Brazilian coffee).
They post their daily menu offerings and specials on Twitter and Facebook every day so you know what to expect when you walk up to their window as well. Yolk’s accepts cash, debit, and credit cards, which is very handy. You can find them at Beatty and Dunsmuir daily or at special events like this weekend’s final Yelp Food Truck Fest at the Waldorf Hotel.
