Vancouver Eggs Benedict Challenge

Welcome to the Vancouver Foodster Eggs Benedict Challenge. I have invited restaurants from all over the city to enter their eggs benedict into this challenge, most have created a special eggs benedict just for this challenge. Each restaurant will be featuring their eggs benedict on their menu from March 22- April 21, 2013.

How Does this all Work? Well, this is a public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the eggs benedict’s in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best eggs benedict creation.

Share your experiences: Tweet (and don’t forget to tweet or instagram your photos) throughout the challenge, our twitter address is @vanfoodster and the hashtag is #EggsBenedictChallenge please include this hashtag in all your tweets during the event.

Voting criteria -  some things to help you judge your favourite eggs benedict’s – keep these things in mind: originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.

Get some friends together and make breakfast or brunch of it, visit 2 places or more to share and taste the different eggs benedicts or go solo or with a friend – just remember to VOTE for your favourites between April 19-23.
