The Naam – Breakfast
The Naam is actually one of the restaurants in Vancouver that’s older than I am… now that’s longevity given that Vancouver foodies tend to be quite fickle.
Known mainly for their vegetarian and vegan options during a time when this might have seemed a fad, they have endured and have seen other Vancouver restaurants embrace the natural and vegetarian menu options over time.
One of the things that drew me here was that they were open 24 hours a day. I was looking for some breakfast options in the area and figured this was the perfect opportunity to try them out. The restaurant was rather quiet during my visit with only a few other patrons inside.
First off, I ordered a Hot Chocolate ($2.95) which, although presented nicely, left me somewhat disappointed as it lacked a distinct chocolate flavour. It seemed to taste more like a latte.
For my breakfast, I picked the Ye Olde Eggs Naam ($7.95) with 2 fried eggs, toast, homefries, and miso gravy. The thick bread was super soft on the inside and somehow tasted both hearty and light. While the Yukon gold potatoes were not crispy, they were quite good… especially when paired with the runny egg yolks and the miso gravy (which was not too salty or thick).
Service was friendly and the food was quite well prepared… just wish I could have had some crispy bacon with my meal.
