Midweek blunch at Jethro's in Vancouver

Couldn't find much on CH about this relatively new entry into the brunch scene here, though foodslinger mentioned "righteous omelettes" in April and Philx has mentioned it in the diners and pancakes threads. I had a chance to swing by mid-June for a late lunch.

What drew me here was the presence of huevos rancheros. I had read reports that what you get on the plate isn't necessarily what it says on the menu and that held true for my dish. The huevos were supposed to be topped with tomatillo salsa which I adore. As you will see from the photo, they came instead with rather generic albeit fresh-cut red tomato salsa. I ate some and then asked the server what was up with that. She came back with a small dish of cold tomatillo sauce, which would have been great had it been served warm and atop the eggs as promised. It was unclear why the cook did not put the sauce on the eggs to begin with...

The eggs themselves were done beautifully, the black beans were quite tasty and the grilled corn cakes were excellent, though again they weren't really grilled but rather griddled. In fact, I would call them very nice corn pancakes. I could have done without the rice which though unobjectionable was too much plain white rice. Of course, I might have enjoyed it more had it been properly slathered with tomatillo sauce.

I'd like to go back and try out some of the other menu items which sound great (chicken fried steak, mmm!) but I'd be confirming that what I'm ordering is what I'm going to get first.

Here's a few pix including some hard to read shots of the menu.
