Chewies (Kits) – Southern Brunch
Okay, this is a bit of a late post… over a year late. I found this entry sitting at the bottom of a number of posts in my draft folder that I must have forgotten about. With that in mind, I’m sure the prices listed here have probably gone up since our last visit.
We first visited this location of Chewies about 5 years ago. Tucked away in a residential area of Kits, it’s only a short walk away from Kits Beach. One of the few southern-inspired restaurants in Vancouver, this has always been one of our go-to places to get a nice bowl of jambalaya or fresh oysters.
Speaking of oysters, we picked up a selection of raw oysters for our brunch (Village Bay $6.50 for 2, Lighthouse $5.50 for 2, Sawmill Gems $6.00 for 2).
We also ordered the Southern Fried Chicken and Waffles ($16) and Southern Biscuit ($14). The buttermilk biscuits were covered with a white gravy and served with sausage, hash browns and eggs. I would have preferred if there was a bit more gravy in this dish.
Meanwhile, the fried chicken was encased in a supremely crisp batter and drizzled with cajun honey butter. On the inside, the chicken was moist and tender.
As I’ve mentioned on prior visits, you’ll either love or hate the atmosphere here… the waiters tend to be on the irreverent side with a healthy dose of sarcasm mixed in. What can’t be denied is that the food is pretty spot on.
