Brunch Boost

Where Vancouver - - Dining -

Those bored by ba­sic brunch op­tions leave the hol­landaise be­hind and head to House Spe­cial (page 75). Here, the mid-morn­ing meal con­sists of Viet­name­ses­tyle dim sum, a line-up of Saigon-in­spired share plates such as dumplings filled with ground pork, ji­cama and shrimp; a red-bean cin­na­mon bun topped with con­densed-milk frost­ing; and a crispy egg­wrapped radish cake. A trop­i­cal mi­mosa with sour­sop and orange juices, or a creamy con­densed milk–spiked Viet­namese cof­fee make per­fect pair­ings. Con­sider brunch bore­dom ban­ished.—Jill Von Sprecken
