Everyone knows how much I like street food and a sunny Friday means that eating some is an inevitability. La Brasserie has recently launched a mobile food trailer and has nabbed a prime spot at the corner of West Georgia and Granville near the City Centre Canada Line station. I’ve heard great things from my fellow blue collar workers who have tried the Brass Chicken Sandwich and I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into one!
Being the first sunny day in some time the wait was a little on the long side but that’s a good thing for street food vendors. La Brasserie Street’s Twitter account claimed 45 person line ups that day, awesome! I ordered my sandwich and payed my $7 and patiently waited as the smell of delicious chicken filled the streets. There’s an added bonus at this location, while you wait for your food you can watch a very spunky little 3 legged dog chase a small rock that his owner throws for him. Seems like a good scam as tons of people were giving him money… Anyways, back to the food. After receiving my sandwich I loaded it up with hot Dijon mustard and took a big bite. My face appeared from the sandwich looking like a tennis ball that had been left out in the rain, covered in gravy and mustard. I’m sure there were many hot ladies walking back to their offices who thought “who’s that hot bearded elevator guy with the messy face?” It’s ok to look ladies but I’m taken.
The sandwich was really good, beer braised rotisserie chicken, rich and well seasoned chicken gravy and crispy onions on a fresh buttermilk bun. Very simple food is amazing when done right. This ain’t no Sous Vide truffle infused gastro wonderchild, it’s a really good chicken sandwich at a good price. That’s what street food is all about and La Brasserie Street totally gets it.
