Edible Obsessions | Ritual YVR

I had the most fabulous brunch this morning at Ritual, a hidden gem at the corner of Robson and Denman st. This adorable restaurant has been on my must visit list for quite some time, and I am so glad that I finally made it out to Ritual as the food was amazing. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be returning for more meals. 

For brunch, my friend and I were famished and basically ready to charge into the kitchen to eat whatever in sight. However, we decided to be civil and place our orders with the lovely server. I went with the Heuvos Rancheros (vegetarian with egg) while my friend opted for something sweet, Ritual's Banana's Foster Pancakes. 

The Heuvos Rancheros was fantastic and for something so simple, this dish was full of flavour. I was pleasantly surprised and could not believe how full it made me. I was struggling to finish the last few bites, and as much as I tried, I could not polish my plate off. That is how filling the Heuvos Rancheros was! The dish was also served with a slice of Ritual's Honey Corn Bread. I have had corn bread in the past, but Ritual's is probably my favourite as it had a great honey flavour, but I loved how the texture of the cornbread was crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. 

Unlike me who chose a savoury dish, my friend got Ritual's Banana Foster Pancakes. The pancakes were smothered in a delicious caramel bourbon sauce, topped with caramelized banana's and of course, a generous dollop of fresh whip cream. This too was very filing evident by my friends struggles at finishing the pancakes. I really liked their pancakes, they were light and fluffy and full of flavour. 

I am intrigued by Ritual's special event dinners and hope to check one out soon. That is what first got me interested in the restaurant. For those of you unfamiliar with Ritual, the restaurant hosts set menu dinners every so often. The menus for the events always look delicious and I am hoping they host a New Years one as I would love to go! 

Aside from the special dinners, I will most likely be dropping by for a normal dinner too! Let me know in the comments below if you have dined at Ritual and how you liked it? Also, what are some other restaurants I should eat at next?
