Eating french fries and drinking coffee is something that you do in your teens or in college. Having only coffee for breakfast, I was starved by the time I went to my client meeting on Granville Island. I knew Edible Canada Bistro was recently opened, so I suggested that we have coffee there to check it out. Then I recalled that their french fries were to die for – BC potatoes deep fried in duck fat and served with a side of tomato sauce and bacon aioli. So french fries and Americano coffee for breakfast – the grown up version! Needless to say the fries were inhaled in no time – it was flavourful with savoury hints without been ducky and surprisingly light at the same time- yum! The bacon aioli was a great compliment to the fries. My client agreed that the fries were supberb next to the Truffle Fries served at West and Araxi. I shall have to return and sample the rest of the delicious menu when I have some more time. In the meantime the coffe and fries sustained me on my busy day.
