Homer Street Cafe Vancouver (Downtown)

The best seat in the house is the chef’s table.* We love to peer into the kitchen and see what everyone is up to. Prepping, chopping, roasting, sauteing, garnishing, etc… For this reason, we truly love sitting at the high-top bars at the Homer Street Cafe Vancouver Downtown. The space is charmingly designed by Craig Stanghetta (see Revolver Coffee). The idea stems from a French Grand Cafe with tessellated floors, industrial light fixtures, and woodwork and brass finishing.  Much like Lafayette, New York, the France’s Grand Cafe design at the Homer Street Cafe is both urbane and earthy, romantic and comfortable.

Homer Street Cafe bustles at night and hums during the day as the restaurant is packed full or people and birds: 17 rooster pictures and a rotisserie oven that can hold 36 birds at a time. The fire engine red Grande Flamme Olympia edition Rotisol Rotisserie Olympia GF 1375.60LG is beautiful. The featured chicken dishes are marinated in house brine and roasted with rubs that change daily. Your Fraser Valley chickens will never be the same as the previous day! Served whole, halved, or quarters with seasonal greens.

Warm house bread to start us off right with olive oil and sea salt.

Tossing between the daily special of 1. Cured steelhead, roe, frisee, and capers and 2. Mackerel, pickled peppers, eggplant and potato salad; we finally decided on number two. This was a wise choice. It was beaming when it arrived.

Mackerel, pickled peppers, eggplant and potato salad 16: Three solid pieces of mackerel fish lightly grilled. Although served cold it still has the smoky flavor. It is well seasoned and delicious. Topped with roe and crispy salami. Bottom pureed potatoes and frisee.

Pork and hazelnut terrine, pickled vegetables, apple mustard 12: We love terrines (here, herehere, and here), it is maddening. This fatty and creamy terrine is nicely seasoned and is not too rich and heavy. The apple mustard is sharp, bright and has a nice zing.

Suckling pig roast, apple, celeriac puree, pork braised shallot, and natural jus 22: The heaviest dish of the night with plenty of pig for everyone. The pig is fatty, tender and succulent. The outer wrapped was a bit chewy and tough. Seasonal greens and radicchio are refreshing as it drips with au jus.

 

It is amazing how we were still able to ordered dessert.

Bread Pudding 6: Baked bread pudding, sour cherry and brandy cream. We first discovered we actually like bread pudding at Kessel and March because it was brilliantly creamy, soft and moist. This on the other hand was quite hard and dense. The texture did not wow. I did really enjoy the flavor profiles of the sour cherry and brandy cream.

I’m really looking forward to the Homer Street Cafe Brunch Menu. I read that they have Fried Oyster with Mustard Aioli and Pickled Cucumber! What do you suggest for Brunch? Leave us a comment!

 

*We arrived early for our RSVP but there was no seats available. No biggie, we will take the bar seat. Thank You!
