A Hearty Brunch at Wurst Restaurant and Beer Hall

$3 Mimosa - how can I resist?
For our final day in Calgary, we knew we’d only be around for the morning before we had to catch the Red Arrow, so we opted to have brunch and chose Wurst, a German beer hall. With a fairly extensive brunch menu and $3 mimosas, it was hard to narrow down what we wanted to try – or limit myself to just a single beverage – however it wouldn’t work out to get drunk before catching a bus home to #yeg.

Confit Duck and Goat Cheese Eggs Bendict
Lobster Poached Omlet
We opted to try the butter-poached omelet and the confit duck and goat cheese eggs benedict. If there’s any advice I can offer you, it’s go hungry! At Wurst, they don’t skimp on the food, with your meal coming out on plates large enough to hold 2 of Moo!

The butter poached lobster omelet came with wilted greens, fresh cheese, chives, and grilled toast. The omelet itself was fluffy and was filled with creamy cheese and buttery succulent lobster. The confit duck and goat cheese eggs benedict was served on a house made cheese biscuit with wilted greens and hollandaise sauce. The biscuit was fresh and moist, with a hint of cheese, but was very large, almost too large for the eggs benedict as there was more biscuit than egg, confit duck or goat cheese combined. The egg was perfectly soft poached and oozing, the duck confit was juicy and tender, and the whole thing worked well together. The only thing lacking was they could have used more goat cheese and it was very sparse. Their house made smoked ketchup was very nice, smoky, and not too sweet, perfectly complimenting the crispy potatoes.

Overall it was a tasty and hearty meal with no chance of anyone leaving hungry. If you’re looking for brunch and are feeling more than a might puckish, this might be the place for you.

  2. It was the best of times, it was the wurst of times, eh?
