Vancouver Foodster Eggs Benedict Challenge

Welcome to the Vancouver Foodster 2nd Eggs Benedict Challenge. I have invited select restaurants 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 June 15 – July 8, 2017.

How Does this all Work? For the public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the eggs benedict creations in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best creation for the People’s Choice award winners. 

Share your experiences: Social share by tweeting, instagraming or snapchating your photos throughout the challenge, our twitter and instagram address is @vanfoodster and the hashtag is #EggsBenedictChallenge

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 the places to share and taste the different eggs benedicts or go solo or with a friend – just remember to VOTE for your favourites before the challenge ends on July 8, 2017.

Here are the Eggs Benedicts in this challenge, listed in no particular order other than when they were received by us.
