Yolk’s is a new breakfast themed food truck located right outside of the Stadium-Chinatown skytrain station. Yolk’s sells breakfast sandwiches, some sweet breakfast items, and a few small snacks. The truck is open from 7:00am-1:00pm.
I was hard pressed to decide between the bacon and the avocado sandwich ($6.95), but in the end I ordered the tempura panko avocado sandwich. They cook up your eggs when you order them so your sandwich is fresh and warm.
The sandwich was loaded with ripe avocado slices that were coated in a thin panko batter. I loved the warm buttery flavour from the avocado, and even though this sandwich has no meat on it, it is delicious and it doesn’t feel like it’s lacking. It is also topped with a poached egg and cilantro lime hollandaise. The egg was poached to perfection and the gooey yolk ended up making a bit of a mess. I’m a hollandaise fanatic, so I loved the moisture and creamy flavour it added to the sandwich.
The English muffin that the sandwich was on was better than most I’ve had. Instead of being dry and dense, it was light and fluffy.
I also ordered a hash brown skewer ($2.75), which is made with roasted baby potatoes that are drizzled in lemon, truffle oil, sea salt, and chives. There are more potatoes on the skewer than shown in the photo.
I loved that they used baby potatoes with the skin on because it adds so much more flavour. These were way tastier than your average greasy hash browns.
I am happy that Vancouver now has a breakfast truck on the scene. Yolk’s delivers big flavour and quality ingredients and I would return for more. The sandwiches aren’t overly large and they are a bit pricy, but they taste way better than any fast food breakfast sandwiches.
Yes, for a solid breakfast sandwich.
