9th Avenue Grill

So this week we decided to visit the 9th Avenue Grill-it has two locations and we visited the one on Broadway near Burrard. The best thing about the 9th Avenue Grill is that it’s open early-really early. So it’s just as good for folks getting off the night shift as those seeking relief from the previous nights’ bacchanalian exploits.

Breakfast wrap

Jenn made comment that I like wraps, and I do. They’re nice and easy to eat and every bite has a mix of different flavours. What’s not to like about that? So I ordered the breakfast wrap.  The menu says it’s a mix of scrambled eggs, bacon, peppers, mushrooms, red and green onions, diced tomatoes and homefries in a tomato basil tortilla.  It was okay. The filling was kind of cold (I think it was pre-prepared), the bacon was way overcooked and there were salty spots in the filling. Plus I was expecting scrambled eggs. What I got were eggs cooked into a thin, pancake type thingie. It was kind of spongy. It made me wish I was at Aphrodite’s. I also asked for a received some salsa on this side. It was way too salty. It made me wish I was at Paul’s Place Omlettery. Sigh.

Fruit Salad - Tres yummy

On a good note, the wrap came with a fruit salad. It was just right – fresh and nothing added to it like sugar or syrup. It had pears, apples, bananas, kiwi and half of a finely diced strawberry on top. And for once, I was glad to be at 9th Avenue.

Turns out I wasn’t in the mood for anything fancy so 9th Avenue Grill fit the bill nicely. I ordered the 2-2-2 which consisted of 2 eggs any style (I’m a scrambled kinda girl), 2 pancakes (or splurge and have french toast for an extra buck) and your choice of bacon, country sausage or honey-smoked ham (sausages for me please). It was a very basic meal that I can’t rave about but which I did enjoy.

Sadly, 9th Avenue does not have an espresso machine (what is this world coming to?) so I settled for an Earl Grey tea. And the Saturday paper, which was graciously offered to me by the waitress while I waited for Theresa to arrive. Basic eats, reasonable prices, friendly staff – I can’t complain.
