AWESOME THING WE ATE #897: The Fried Chicken And Waffles At “Yolk’s” Food Truck


Yolk’s Mobile Breakfast has become well known as a brunch-centric food truck; a reliable source of poached eggs on English Muffins with quality hollandaise and an outstanding product called the Truffle-Lemon Hashbrown Skewer (it’s as good as it sounds).

They also do fresh juices, pork belly Croque Madame sandwiches, fruit pancakes, and other goodies besides, but the big draw today was their special Fried Chicken and Waffle lunch made with organic, free range chicken supplied by our friends out at Polderside.

Yolk’s brines the chicken in honey, citrus, salt and fresh herbs and batters it up with panko bread crumbs and buttermilk. The end result is crispy then tender, and not at all greasy with the seasoning held back to allow for the gravy and maple syrup to do their tasty thing.

The waffles, made a la minute Belgian-style with butter and proper vanilla, are well-browned but pillowy soft on the tooth. At $9.50 an order, it’s a delicious steal of a meal, and one that is mercifully only available on Fridays (it would be dangerously tempting if available every day).

Yolk’s can be found parked on the sidewalk by the Beatty & Dunsmuir exit of Chinatown/Stadium skytrain station from Wednesday through to Sunday (and sometimes at Farmer’s Markets – follow them on Twitter to stay abreast).
