New Brunch Menu at Zarak by Afghan Kitchen

I recently had an opportunity to try some of the new brunch offerings at this Mount Pleasant restaurant that just launched a creative new weekend brunch service serving a selection of Afghan dishes.

Lawrence joined me and we both started off with their Turkish Coffee; you could also start off the morning with a Mimosa or other cocktail if that’s your preference as they offer a complete lineup of cocktails.

1st dish:

Full Afghan with shami kebab, lubya, mushrooms, egg, bolani and chutney yogurt; this was a great way to try a little bit of everything.

2nd dish:

Lamb Benedict with salsa verde and pickled cabbage, some tasty triple fried potatoes.

3rd dish:

Eggplant and Avocado Sandwich, this was delicious and the perfect dish for those that don’t like eggs.

4th dish:

Fried Chicken Sandwich, a healthier version of the typical fried chicken sandwich that has flavour.

5th dish:

Waffle with Qaimaq, mulberry compote, cardamom maple syrup; almost a dessert or an entree, you be the judge.

We both also enjoyed a cup of their unique and tasty Afghan Tea made with black tea, walnuts and spices.

Brunch service runs from 10:30am – 2:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Zarak by Afghan Kitchen is located at 2102 Main Street in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood of Vancouver, follow them on instagram @zarakvancouver
