Burdock & Co.
Does Vancouver have a cuisine of its own? Chef Andrea Carlson’s Burdock & Co. is determined to show it does. Drawing inspiration from the city’s blend of cultures and ingredients from local farms, critics praise Carlson’s menus. But diners fall in love with her weekend brunches. Dishes like tomato baked eggs with leeks and feta taste comfortingly hearty yet refreshingly new. Meanwhile, East meets East in the rice congee with mushroom XO, smoked shoyu and yuzu kombu — an homage to the Chinese and Japanese cuisines that have changed how Vancouverites eat. Burdock is as casual as its Main Street location. Come hungry and eat well.
