Yaletown Brewing Company

Knowlton and I were walking around Yaletown and wanted some lunch. We ended up at the Yaletown Brewing Company because neither of us had ever been here before but wanted to try it. The inside of the restaurant was quite large and it had a nice but comfortable atmosphere with lots of wood detailing. It was really busy when we came here around noon. The menu is quite large and they have a variety of burgers, sandwiches, pasta/rice bowls, and pizzas as well as some larger and more expensive pub inspired entrees.

Duck Confit Pizza

I was having a hard time deciding between the short rib sandwich and the duck confit pizza, but I finally chose the pizza ($15) because it sounded more interesting. The pizza is topped with duck confit leg, toasted walnuts, roquefort blue cheese, dried cranberries and fresh arugula. All of the flavors combined tasted great and worked well together. There was lots of duck on the pizza and it was moist with a rich flavour. The blue cheese was creamy and I was glad that there wasn’t too much of it because it didn’t overwhelm the other flavors. The walnuts added a nice crunchy texture and the cranberries added a little sweetness to contrast the strong cheese flavour. The arugula on top kept falling off but I liked how it freshened up the pizza. The pizza itself was thin and crispy, which is my ideal type of crust.

Overall I enjoyed the food at Yaletown Brewing Company. I thought they had a wide selection of items on their menu and some more unique things that aren’t available at every other restaurant. The atmosphere was good and I would definitely return here for lunch again.

Recommendation:

Yes, for a great lunch in Yaletown.
