La Brasserie Street

La Brasserie Street is a new street food cart, sort of. Kimono Koi Crepes has closed their lovely pink cart and reinvented themselves in a collaboration with Davie Street restaurant, La Brasserie.

They have a simple, and awesome concept. A good sandwich.

In fact, that is all they offer. One sandwich and an assortment of drinks. For $6.25 you get The Brass Sandwich: "Beer brined rotisserie chicken in gravy, on a buttermilk bun, topped with crispy onions." For $7.15 you can get a drink combo.

Everything about this sandwich is right. The chicken was moist and so tasty. Look at the huge chunks of meat! Crispy onions were the perfect topping and I love anyone who serves me gravy.

Thanks to their excellent use of Twitter and Facebook, I had been eagerly anticipating this cart. I went on the first day about 11:45 and was already customer 11. They frequently sell out as they are that awesome.

Who wouldn't buy a sandwich from these guys? I like the idea of a restaurant cart.  I don't know that I would have gone to La Brasserie as I don't get to Davie that often but I am certainly going to go now.  If this is the level of food they serve from a street cart, I am excited to see what the restaurant will offer.

I am so excited that this cart, at the corner of Georgia and Granville, is going to be the closest cart to me when our office moves. I anticipate many La Brasserie Street sandwich/Kaboom Box poutine lunches. Street combo of awesome.

  1. Your chicken pieces are HUGE looking! When I had mine, it was so hard to take a picture because you could hardly see the meat.

    Perhaps they have changed up the serving of meat.

  2. I wondered that when I saw your picture. I did go on the first day and then they kept tweeting that they had run out of sandwiches.... I am going to have to go back this week to see what they are like now. The sacrifices we make as bloggers. ; )
