Amongst the bright lights is a hidden gem: Twisted Fork

  1. Homemade bread, locally sourced ingredients, coffee served (endlessly) in French presses and friendly service are the main ingredients that have created Twisted Fork’s huge success. On any given weekend, you will find yourself having a bit of a wait before you and your hungry companions can be seated. Much like Medina, Twisted Fork has a cult following of loyal diners that will endure the wait because they know that at the end of the tunnel is something scrumptious and satisfying.
    There’s a lot of charm inside Twisted Fork that is created with the help from the two chefs in the kitchen, the local artwork sprawled across the walls and all of the friendly people working there. The brunch menu consists of traditional favorites with a twisted touch. Eggs Benedict are served on top of freshly made brioche and you have your choice of “filling”, and my personal favorite is smoked salmon. The French toast is not your typical bread delight, at Twisted Fork they take homemade brioche and fill it with a sweetly satisfying banana filling and top it with whipped cream, fresh fruit and a shot of maple syrup. How you choose to dispose of that shot glass is up to you…
    Sinfully delicious!
    Scrambled eggs are always a breakfast favorite in my household and not surprisingly, Twisted Fork adds their own twist to this breakfast classic. Fresh, free range eggs are dotted with fresh pieces of asparagus, served with sauteed spinach, a roasted Roma tomato (sliced in half), a slice of potato rosti and the most delicious homemade bread and jam. Make sure you go hungry, the portions are very generous and each brunch item is a bargain at $12 per plate.
    This breakfast will turn that frown upside down.
    Should you need a little hair-of-the-dog, they can certainly cure Friday night’s just-one-more. Another selling point is their coffee; no more coffee that’s been sitting in a jug for an unsavory amount of time, they serve each order of coffee in a French press.
    Twisted Fork also serves dinner and much like their breakfast, they serve quality dishes that will leave you filled with satisfaction and it’s definitely worth a visit both morning and night. The price point is more than reasonable considering the quality of the ingredients they use and the very generous portion sizes. And, they also showcase wines from smaller BC wineries, which is always something I’m happy to support and explore.
    Not to mention, their “Twisted deals” are pretty awesome:
    “Blue Fence” Special ~ 3 courses for $25 Mon- Thurs 6pm-7pm
    Marvelous Mondays ~ $10 off bottles of wine
    Mussel Tuesdays ~ $8/pound with frites and housemade bread
    “Sunday Night Supper” ~ 1st Sunday of every month – three course comfort food dinner “just like your Mom used to make” (includes gl of wine/beer) $25
