Burgoo – Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I love every aspect of the decor! So welcoming and warm:

When K suggested dining at Burgoo for “brunch” on the Sunday that we were leaving Vancouver, I was all for trying it out because I have never been. Meep and I thought Burgoo was a burger place for the whole time until we actually sat down and looked at the menu. The Menu has a whole range of dishes/specialties from all parts of the world and who knew Burgoo was from Kentucky??!! lol

Menu:

We ordered:

2 orders Soup & Sandwich Co $17 each ($1 extra for french onion soup option)
Decadent French Onion

Deeply roasted onions in rich beef broth with country style croutons, baked with Gruyere, Emmenthal and Mozzarella.

Pretty good french onion soup. Insane amount of cheese and nice croutons that soaked up all the rich sweet onion beefy soup. Pretty comforting and not the least bit heavy or greasy (ignoring the melted cheese on top)

Dos Diablos

Two grilled angle cut filone sandwiches with melted spicy white cheddar with chunks of chorizo sausage and roasted red pepper

The top seller sandwich, and I could see why – it was cheesey, greasy with a nice crunch from toasting. I am not a huge fan of so much cheese because it just felt insanely heavy. Everyone else loved it though. I found it way to greasy and it was just like eating deep fried cheese sticks and bits of spicy chorizo. I appreciate the kick from the chorizo that cuts into some of that cheese.

Croque Monsieur $12

Two honey roasted ham, Gruyere and Emmenthal sandwiches baked and smothered with Dijon accented molten cheese

I didn’t try this but it looked intense with all that cheese!

.

Eggs Burgoo $14

3 scrambled eggs served over hot oven baked Kentucky Burgoo and biscuits, finished with melted cheddar.

Oh my.. the eggs were fabulous! Not your average scrambled eggs: they were soft, fluffy and seasoned lightly. I always thought it was total BS when someone describes scrambled eggs as fluffy because I had have it airy from baking or dense but light and fluffy? Well I had the chance to say I have had fluffly scrambled eggs and they were fabulous! Still moist and yolky too!

The biscuits were a bit of a disappointment because they were just heavy and soggy. I never knew Burgoo was a type of stew that is very much like chili. The burgoo served was tomatoey, rich and had bits of sausage, beans and random veggies. It was a tad too spicy for my liking but good a cold day out.

Personal Rating: 3.5 out of 5 (Good)

Service was excellent; attentive without being suffocating. The food was served shortly after ordering, all piping hot and super fresh. The prices are a tad higher than any typical soup/sandwich place but the ingredients are top notched.
