Located just off Robson Street, on Jervis Street, in Vancouver’s West End, Morocco West takes patrons’ taste buds on a trip.
While any meal is great at the small bistro, brunch is a brilliant combination of exotic flavours and comfortable plates. Benedict, omelette, scrambled eggs, flatbread all sound familiar but Chef Nourdine Majdoubi adds his own unique flavour and flair to elevate the dishes to achieve Morocco West’s standards.
On our recent visit, a nice sunny autumn morning invited us to take advantage of Morocco West’s streetside patio for brunch. After much deliberation and a recommendation from our friendly server, I decided to try Chef’s Signature Moroccan Benedict; free-range eggs, merguez sausage, hummus, paprika hollandaise. The dish is usually served with breakfast potatoes but I requested to change to their very flavourful Truffle Parmesan Fries. Billy chose Moroccan Omelette; free-range eggs, mushrooms, cheddar cheese served with potatoes.
Both dishes were perfectly satisfying for Sunday brunch as well as nicely prepared and presented. The benedict’s poaches eggs were cooked just as I’d requested, with just enough yoke to dip the truffle fries into and mix with the paprika hollandaise. The omelette was soft but firmly cooked and the ample mushrooms with melted cheddar made the vegetarian dish plenty satisfying for the heartiest meat-eater.
A sunny day helps, but not required to enjoy a flavourful brunch at Morocco West.
