Last time I was at Ancora was during last year's Dine Out Vancouver. I was still pregnant and now baby is almost 3 months old. To celebrate Motherhood and my friend's pregnancy we decided to head over to Ancora for brunch! I love the bright open space and how roomy it is. The restaurant isn't too loud and is perfect to bring a baby.
But. first. coffee.
Brunch service is only available on the weekends.
WINDBERRY FARM CHICKEN AND WAFFLES 20: spiced syrup, avocado puree, house bacon and botanical greens. While we thought fried chicken and waffles would be heavy and a bit of an indulgent, this c&w was well battered and not greasy whatsoever.
DUCK CONFIT CASSOULET 25: Peruvian beans with two poached eggs and kale salad. If you are looking for a more substantial entree, this one's for your. Flavourful and gratifying.
Listen to your Mom and eat your vegetables. We like a side of crispy brussels sprouts!
PERUVIAN STYLE PAELLA 21: black cod croquettes, chorizo, Peruvian corn, shellfish, one poached egg with paprika aioli. I love this dish and its departure from an everyday Brunch menu item. This was deliciously made with hearty wild black rice.
BLUE AND GREY 12: I never say no to anything Earl Grey and Lavender especially when it's a Earl Grey, blueberry and lavender ice cream with Earl Grey shortbread!!
