Chef's Playground Eatery - Steveston

"Where chefs think outside of the box" is how the Chef's Playground Eatery describes itself and the menu reflects both a rather mischievous creativity and a  bit of an obsession with freshness. We were excited to try this little cafe. This was to be stop number two for us, of the 2018 Vanfoodster's Burger Challenge.
Located just a couple of blocks from the Steveston waterfront,the folks are friendly here and service is good! We arrived during the brunch period on the weekend and to be fair, the Vanfoodster Burger Challenge details indicate that their challenge offering is available for lunch and dinner. What followed was a brief breakdown in communication between myself and our server where I thought that I was ordering the Truffle Mushroom Cheesy Burger but what I actually got was the Bacon Cheddar V2.0 Burger.

This was a nicely cooked (not overcooked) burger with all the stuff I hope for on a burger so I can't complain but no truffle mushroom ailoli ! I may have to return just to try their challenge offering...such hardship! Marie and I agreed that the fries were above average as well, being hand cut and skin on.
To offset the burger and fries we shared a Chef's Healthy Salad with a citrus yogurt dressing, a nice selection of tasty greens and some bit of strawberry, apple and Mandarin sections. Very Nice!
Now, I am not a fresh fruit juice guy. I don't put it into the same category as Goop products but I find that people who juice tend to believe it will solve all their problems. That was not the case at Chef's Playground where they offer a refreshing juice for brunch just as a nice way to start your day! This one was cucumber, apple and celery with a nice little mint garnish. It was very refreshing although maybe just a bit sweeter than I prefer.
We enjoyed our visit to Chef' Playground and hopefully we will get back to try their burger entry in the challenge. Still no regrets as we enjoyed a tasty brunch!
