Since opening their doors in 2000, Masa’s a la Carte has intrigued Vancouverites with its flair for new twists on old favourites, combining West Coast cuisine with Japanese tastes. Now open for dinner as well as breakfast, Masa’s continues to serve up fresh, healthy breakfast and brunch items in their cozy cottage-like space. The service is always friendly and generous, as are the portions, from omelettes and scones made daily on site to rice bowls and sushi, served fresh at lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served until 2 p.m., and lunch and dinner are served from 11 a.m. onwards.
Wholesome and Homemade
One of the highlights of Masa’s is the enticing smell that wafts through their front doors, courtesy of the homemade muffins and scones they bake fresh on the premises every morning. Their omelette menu is also legendary, with options such as tofu, feta and green onion or the ever-popular prawn and avocado. They also offer the option of creating your own from a long list of fresh ingredients. They also serve breakfast burritos (meat or vegetarian), thick slices of French toast and bagels with all the fixings. During weekdays, they offer several breakfast and lunch combos that allow you to sample a variety of their recipes.
Rice is Nice
While the lunch menu boasts a full soup, sandwich, pita and salad menu, it’s here where the Japanese element to Masa’s success begins to show itself, from the miso soup and gyoza to rice bowls and sushi cones and rolls. The Japanese focus only becomes more apparent at dinner, with sashimi, chicken karaage and gomaae appetizers, as well as several more sushi roll options. Their udon noodle bowls are also crowd favourites, as are the dinner combos and sautéed specials. And of course, Masa’s a la Carte would be nothing without their “à la carte” menu, which focuses on tempura, burritos and quesadillas.
