Homer Street Café

I remember loving this small Chinese food diner on the corner of Homer and Smithe over 25 years ago. It is now a fancy, multi-levels Homer St. Café and Bar specializing in roasting delicious chicken in front of your eyes.

Twice the price of Swiss Chalet, three times the price of a Safeway roasted chicken, but is it worth the price? The quality of chicken is excellent. The dipping sauce is probably not made of chicken feet and the coleslaw is amazing but no French Fries. Somewhat worth the price, I say.

On the other hand, a side of Brussels Sprouts was disappointing (but then again, I have been spoiled by Flying Pig's crusty sprouts). 

But Homer St. Café and Bar redeemed themselves very quickly with a well made, tasty decadent dessert - baked bread pudding with sour cherry and brandy cream. Well worth its $6.00 price tag (actually pretty cheap for the quantity and quality).
