If we could blink our way to a brunch destination in Canada today, we’d choose #70 on our list, Vancouver’s Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio.

Located along the False Creek seawall, Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio fuses Peruvian and Japanese cultures with the bounty of the West Coast to great effect – they just took home a Bronze for Best Seafood at the 2016 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards. Executive Chef Ricardo Valverde hails from Lima, Peru and spent five years at the Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar.

Locally sourced, sustainable seafood with exotic ingredients are the order of the day. Meaning Dungeness Crab Causa with Yukon gold, kalamata olive emulsion, quail egg, Huancaina sauce and crispy yam.  Or Pacific lingcod with “forbidden” rice paella, Peruvian corn, baby squid, chorizo, shrimp broccoli, bell pepper, pimenton emulsion.

Food lovers will note that Ancora is located in the old C Restaurant (frontrunners in promoting sustainable seafood) and while the menu has changed, the view remains the same.

So our dream brunch would be outdoors on the patio in the sunshine, enjoying Steelhead Trout Eggs Benedict with cornbread, organic pea shoots and smoked Hollandaise with paprika emulsion, B.C. wine and a few $2 oysters thrown back for good measure.
