Eggs Benedict. Sausage Breakfast Sandwich. Tempeh Rib Hash. All 100% vegan on our new brunch menu! Launching on Saturday, January 23, our brunch menu will be available Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30am to 2pm. We are so excited to show the city what we've been working on the past few months!
“Our goal with our brunch menu was to utilize the flavour profiles that our guests have come to know and love, in breakfast dishes,” says Breanne Smart, Head Chef. “The dish I’m most excited for everyone to try is the Smoked Lox Benedict – it borrows the flavours from our popular Aburi Lox Oshi, a traditional Bagel & Lox, and a classic hollandaise.”
Guests can expect two plant-based benedicts, including a gluten free ‘crab cake’ benedict made with avocado, tofu egg, and hollandaise, Asian-inspired Breakfast Bao Buns, and PB + J waffles to satisfy those with a sweet tooth. “We got to partner with a fantastic handful of local vegan Vancouver vendors for this launch,” says Smart. “Yoggu, East Van Jam, Tempea, and TMRW Foods products highlight our dishes, such as the Yogurt Bowl, Jam + Ricotta Toast, and Tempeh Rib Hash.”
The brunch menu will also feature an extensive cocktail list, designed by MILA’s talented bar manager, Alex Tognazzi. “I’m extremely passionate about pushing the envelope and coming up with new and exciting ideas,”says Tognazzi. One look at his creations and you’ll see he’s done just that. Enter The Dragon is MILA’s brunch Caesar with a twist – of Sake, that is. It features Absolut Vodka, Sake, a tower of assorted pickled vegetables, and an Asian Caesar mix infused with soy, miso, and wasabi. Other standouts include The Kohaku River, a vibrant pink that owes its hue to the muddled dragon fruit, and a Mimosa Flight four ways, including a strawberry and lychee flavour.
