The first time we tried to find Big 6, we ended up in New Westminister! Tucked away in the corner where Edmonds street suddenly ends, this old school Chinese-run western diner.
Inside its definitely a little worn down, but I don’t mind! The loud, yelling waitress (in Cantonese) is a bit jarring, but meh, that’s not the end of the world.
We’ve only been around breakfast time, but they do have a full lunch and early dinner menu (they close at 7 PM daily).
I chose Eggs Benedict on a recent visit – a crazy low price for a big plateful of food. The hashbrowns that come with most of their breakfast items have a lot of griddle-borne crispy edges, pretty great. As for the eggs benedict, I was a bit sad to see the mould-shapped poached eggs, but…
… when the result is such a perfectly medium poached egg, I can’t complain.
Another great value is the Steak & Eggs – a little 5 oz sirloin is cooked, again, perfectly to order (you can actually see the steak juice on the plate – yum!)
So far, everything we’ve had has been solid, honest, and really well priced. Oh, and, unlike other tiny diners we enjoy, this one does take debit and credit card.
