#Summerbrunchklub: Wurst Uberkitchen and Wunderbar

IMG_7080

Wurst Uberkitchen and Wunderbar in the Mission area is best known for its Bavarian-inspired cuisine, craft beers and vibrant night life, but probably less known for their weekend brunch offering.

On Saturday, we arrived for our 1pm reservation and were seated in a comfortable leather banquet on the upper level restaurant. The interior has an outdoor courtyard feel with the two large trees in the center of the space serving as a focal point. The decor is warm and rustic with a mix of wood accents and cream coloured upholstery.

The menu is a mix of diner favourites with a German twist. One of their more popular dishes include the Duck Confit Benedict topped with fresh goat cheese, creamed spinach and hollandaise and is served on a herb and cheese biscuit with a side of potatoes and greens ($16). For something heartier, the Roasted Bratwurst and Bean Skillet topped with fried eggs, manchego and a side of german potatoes and grilled toast ($16) fits the bill and pairs perfectly with a refreshing fruit radler. If you are in the mood for lunch, you could try the Wurst Poutine ($12) served with speck gravy, green peas and truffle oil with an optional egg or their Dom Burger ($16), a ground chuck patty topped with cheddar, tomato and secret sauce on a sesame brioche bun.

I always love the savoury + sweet combo for brunch, so I went with their popular French Toast ($16). Wurst’s version has two slices of dense and eggy sourdough sandwiched with strips of double smoked bacon and melty gouda. It’s topped with a mound of julienned Granny Smith apple slaw, fresh berries, a dollop of whipped cream and a side of blueberry sauce. Overall, I enjoyed the dish. I personally prefer the thick and fluffy brioche style french toast, but their version was a unique take a traditional dish.

My husband went with the Mountain Breakfast ($14), Wurst’s take on a traditional breakfast which was served with two eggs your way, double smoked bacon, stewed tomatoes, mixed beans, german potatoes and slices of multigrain toast. According to him, the dish was mediocre. The tomatoes and beans lacked flavour, the potatoes were slightly cold and the bacon was just “ok”. Probably not a dish he would order again next time.

For beverages, we started off with a couple of mimosas ($5 each). Although they were priced at almost half the price of most establishments we’ve visited, we did find the juice to bubbles ratio much higher and suggest you get a couple of caesars instead for the same price. Wurst supports local businesses in the area and proudly serve Phil and Sebastian coffee if you need that caffeine boost.

Overall, the service was really friendly and attentive. The ambience is lively and we’ll be sure to return when the weather is nice and enjoy brunch out on their sunny patio decorated with planters filled with colourful flowers.
