We’d argue this is one of the best brunch¬†burgers in Vancouver, and it’s easy to see why. Available during this Gastown haunt’s weekend brunch service, the Breakfast Burger is a layered delight which features a hashbrown patty, a fried egg, and a quarter pound patty.

Wakwak Burger from the Wakwak Burger food truck

Whatever your thoughts on Wakwak, you can’t deny that the $2.85 price tag for a burger from this food truck is anything less than extraordinary. It may be simple, but the patty is juicy, the lettuce is crispy, and the bun is soft. If that’s not a recipe for a solid street burger, we don’t know what is.

Address: Granville and Pender
