The 2nd Annual Food Fight! The Battle for Brunch! & Enter to Win Tickets!

The 2nd Annual Food Fight! The Battle for Brunch!

A feast and fundraiser for Variety – The Children’s Charity’s

Lavender Donuts with sweetened Mascarpone Cheese from YEW Restaurant last year.

BATTLE BRRRRRRUUUNNCCHHHH!!!! Just like how the Chairman announces it on Iron Chef America! That’s how excited I am about this event! What better battle is there?! Well… I could think of lots… but brunch is pretty damn hard to top! Who doesn’t love brunch?! It’s a super hearty late breakfast, where I’m not required to wake up early for, followed by a nap! Or is that only my definition of brunch?

Anyways on Sunday, April 10th some of BC’s finest Chefs will gather at Terminal City Club and battle for your vote for the best brunch. Attendees are invited to sample a delicious gourmet brunch offered at each station and cast their vote to determine one Chef as the Food Fight champ!

I can’t believe it’s already been year since I last attended the Food Fight! The Battle for Brunch! I’m so happy to hear that they’re making it an annual event especially since it’s a feast and fundraiser for Variety – The Children’s Charity! Last year was so much fun and it was a great excuse for me to eat six eggs in one day. Hey we’re all allowed our indulgences once in a while, except I think for me it’s more often… but who cares! This is for a great cause to help raise funds for children who have special needs, and if I can show support by doing what I do best – eating, then in the words of The Beatles “Let it Be!” Please join me! I shouldn’t have to convince you it’ll be fun! If you need a little bit of convincing then check out my post from last year here.

This year, Food Fight competitors include: Market by Jean-Georges, O’Doul’s Restaurant & Bar, Terminal City Club, Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Resort, YEW restaurant + bar and more! Silent and live auctions will feature items donated by LIFT Bar & Grill, Skoah, Cookworks, Mink Chocolates, Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse, and many more. A cash bar will be offering a variety of wines, champagne and other liquid libations.

Tickets are $45 and available online at or by calling the Variety office at 604.320.0505 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              604.320.0505      end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

    wow, thanks for the contest. i’d love to go! i think my fave brunch spot so far is cafe medina.

  • Tracy says:

    Best brunch: gotta be Twisted Fork. More than just bennies, bottomless french press coffee, great rosti, and they’ve made me like scrambled eggs again (but only if with asparagus like they’ve done!) Plus they’ve got a better version of the Caesar (aptly named the ‘Bruno’) to cure all hangovers. Can’t be beat.

  • Phy says:

    Favorite place for brunch is Glowbal Grill! Love their banana bread/doughnuts too.

  • May says:

    Urban Fare Coal Harbour. They have very good omlettes and eggs benny. I go there a few days a week because its so close to work and its very good quality for about $12

  • Jen says:

    The best brunch I have been to is at the Pan Pacific Cafe Pacifica. We used to go each year for my birthday and they have everything…..sushi, seafood, fruit platters, custom omelettes, dessert tables, etc. It is a buffet, so we fill ourselves up on all the amazing food 🙂

    Epicurean Cafe Bistro in Kits. Get the “earthy breakfast” and get ready for deliciousness – two eggs poached in a savoury tomato sauce, topped with a grilled turkey or pork sausage, with marinated eggplant (ask for it spicy) and roasted potatoes. AMAZING SERVICE!!

    it was Cafe Medina, but currently I’m completely in love with Jethro’s Fine Grub!

  • Maggie says:

    My favourite brunch spot (that I’ve tried so far!) is Little Nest on Charles Street by Commercial Drive. It’s definitely a family-oriented spot, but they have the most amazing breakfast items. Their brioche french toast with creme fraiche and fresh fruit is to die for!

  • vivian says:

    Favorite brunch?hmmm…that’s a hard one since there’s so many good places! The first one that comes to mind is Tapenade in Steveston. They use fresh seasonal ingredients and the flavors are all very complementary. My favorite is their mushroom toast ( i don’t remember the official dish name).

  • wanda says:

    Haven’t been to brunch for a long time, but Paul’s Omelettery is pretty good. I’ll have to try some of the ones that have been mentioned. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Definitely The Well on Main street. The portions are generous, tasty and best of all, amazingly presented!!!

  • Rmd_Foodie says:

    Jethro’s Fine Grub all the way! I’m drooling just thinking about their Crab Cake Benny! And before eating this, I didn’t even like benny’s! They converted me and I love them for it!
