Pho 99 Vietnamese Noodle House8611 Alexandra Road, #180, Richmond
Awesome spicy noodles soup

Submitted Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - 10:10am [Dine in]

We come here in a group of 8 people in dinner time, they have private free parking here , so we can save a lot of time to find a parking spot within the rush hours. I order BUN BO HUE, aside from the spicy noodles soup.The broth was the most surprising, rich in flavour and a bit spicy. I love the Vietnamese Ham. It is very flavourful,Pork hock, thinly sliced beef also. My nephew, he addicted for COM SUON (lemon grass pork on rice) here, the bbq pork with honey was so delicious with special fish sauce, he said. My niece ordered SPECIAL Beef Noodles Soup ( pho dac biet) because she couldn’t eat spicy food. The broth was so nice with the best beef in town. My mum and dad ordered Pho Ga ( BBQ lemon grass chicken with noodles soup), the special food in town, you coudnt find this in any restaurant. My sis order the house special Chicken Wings, it crispy but too old, very juicy and flavour. Her husband preferred The Deep Fry Tofu On Vermicelli with special sauce because he is a vegetarian. Their daughter got the Kid Meal with a drink just about $5 something. All the food come with the drinks in the combo. Each combo about $10 or $11. The service was really quick and nice as well. The waitress even asked how were were doing half way through our meal! Never had that happen with me before in other Vietnamese restaurant ! The food is always perfect whether it be soup or rice or rolls… 1 more thing is the WC it was very clean.

this is my favorite place for roast pork in the area . There's a reason this place ALWAYS has a line. Seriously, though, it's totally worth the wait. The best roast pork, duck, and Chinese sausage I've ever had. The roast pork is perfectly seasoned and has awesomely crispy, crackly skin. You don't need to buy a whole Soy Chicken or BBQ Duck, you can just buy half.The nice man who chops will entertain almost every request.loves this place!

Ebi-Ten388 Robson Street, Vancouver
Cheap hot meal
By richie_rich of vancouver (45 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 25, 2015 - 10:34pm [Take-out]

Hello there,

Every time I pop by the VPL....I sometimes make a pit-stop to this little restaurant just next to Starbucks. Parking is expensive....one quarter I believe its 5 minutes..one dollar get you 20 minutes. As you step in...there is limited seating on the right and the back. The food cooler is to the left and the order cashier is right ahead of you. If you decide to have lunch at noon on a weekday there's a good lineup out the door as most people order takeout like myself. Dinner time is semi full as they close pretty late....10pm on weekdays, weekends and holidays till 9pm. Every item on the board menu is under $10 bucks so budget eats but limited selection. Service is fine for what it is...they take the order and you take a number.Lol

My favorites: rice bowls and tempura....Combo A Ebi-Ten bowl (2 prawn and 1/2 veg tempura, teriyaki chicken pieces on a bed of rice with mixed greens and Japanese mayo)$8.95....Combo B the Mega bowl same as above with mabo-tofu (spicy ground pork and cubed tofu)$9.75.... No. 1 teriyaki chicken on rice with salad and mayo $7.95 ....No.2 ten-don (6pc temp on rice) $7.95.....No. 4 katsu-curry bowl ( deep fried panko breaded pork cutlet and Japanese style curry on rice with shredded cabbage)$8.95.....the 6pc prawn tempura $6.75 or the $4.75 assorted tempura ( 3-prawns and 4 veggies).

Taste?? Tempura (usually made to order) comes out hot crisp and non greasy!! .They have this little machine.....drop battered prawn or veggie on one end...gets fried in the middle for a minute or two and comes out on the other side..automatically get picked by a convoyor belt on to a draining area. Pretty Cool. The teriyaki chicken are thigh meat pieces marinated in sweet soy...good stuff. Mabo-tofu is their version on a Sichuan ma-po dish....not bad..could use more hot bean paste. The pork cutlet is crisp and tender...the curry sauce is mild sweet heat with bits of shredded pork. I do have to admit I have tried their California roll and udon noodles...Roll was small and borderline mushy....passable. Tempura udon No.9..the tempura outshined the noodles and the base...inbetween grade here.

All in all... quick and cheap meal but pick the right one. They take cash, debit and I can't recall..credit cards. Thanks for reading.

Milestone's Grill and Bar2745 Barnet Hwy, Coquitlam
Great group lunch
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (65 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 25, 2015 - 4:56pm [Dine in]

A dozen of us planned to meet at this Milestone's last Sunday for lunch so we made a reservation for 12:30pm. We only had to wait about ten minutes while they pulled our table together and we were promptly offered drinks.

Everyone ordered off the brunch and lunch menus and everyone seemed to like their selection. Not a gripe in the bunch which is most unusual. The 2 piece cod and frites I had was very good, crispy panko crusted fish with excellent fries. Heard rave reviews about the eggs bennies and Mayan burger.

Took 40 minutes to get our food after ordering but that was to be expected given they wanted to serve us all at the same time, which was appreciated. And settling the cheque was surprisingly easy...kudos to our server.

I had to wait 15 minutes before my order was taken, still no smile nor manners. Very cold service, they are only concerned about my money. And my pizza was missing toppings when I went to complain the girl told me sometimes he puts the toppings under the cheese but they weren't there. Save your money and go somewhere you feel valued.

They have messed up my order twice, rude service.
By scarlet of Delta (24 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, May 24, 2015 - 8:37am [Take-out]

When you call to order take out the phone on the voice is "j's pizza" very quiet and hard to hear. After you have placed your order it takes them 25 minutes to make it the guy is working alone so he takes his precious time putting on each ingredient. When I went in to pick up the pizza he had his kids walking and sitting on the counter so it's not only a pizza place but a daycare. Then I realized he forgot to give me the dips he charged me for and he couldn't even deliver them to me since I live 5 mins away so he was like you can pick them up tomorrow. His wife was rude to me the next day when I went to pick up the dips. The pizza is overrpriced cardboard 2 for 1 deal is a joke hear you are better off getting your pie somewhere else. There is no bang for your buck here.

Denny's500 Austin Ave, Coquitlam
Favourite Location
By doughgirl of New Westminster (40 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, May 23, 2015 - 8:01pm [Dine in]

It is becoming a habit for my husband & me to visit this restaurant's location near Lougheed Town Centre!
We live in New Westminster and can either head to Burnaby or Coquitlam when we want to eat at a "Denny's", but we prefer the Coquitlam location.
We consider Service "Outstanding" because server attention is not only prompt, but super friendly. The dining area is bright and clean. My favourite dish is the blueberry pancakes because it is the only restaurant I have found that makes its pancakes minimally sweet and uses beautiful plump blueberries in the batter that actually pop like blueberries when you bite on them (as opposed to wondering if you are eating pie filling or whether blueberries were even added to the batter). The pancakes come with eggs (made to your liking), potatoes (shredded or wedges), and your choice of bacon or sausage. It is a lot of food for less than $10!!! The price always surprises me because the food volume easily costs $12 or more in other similar Canadian style breakfast restaurants.

Went there tonight to give this place another chance. no change from a month ago - menu has changed and there's not a regular meal in sight. Bun on burger burned, steak sandwich = steak was tough
Not good food at all. This was our 'go to' place and near our home so very convenient. Enjoyed the food for many years, but won't be going back. EVER
Big disappointment
Our server did his best, but was running around to several tables. Attentive, but very busy.

Phoned to make a reservation and was told that reservations weren't accepted during the same hour that we were coming in. I.E. A reservation has to be made at least 1 hour and 5 minutes before we arrived. But tonight we were assured that it wasn't busy and we wouldn't have to wait long. Got there in 10 minutes and the wait time for a table was 40 minutes. Young woman at counter did not have a good answer for how the wait time got from "no wait" to 40 minutes. Spaghetti not that special - we left.

Grad day for family member so grabbed a quick late lunch here as we didn't know campus well. Bacon cheeseburger for one, vanilla milkshake and fries for another; poutine and coffee for me at a cost of approx. $24. We were told only healthy food was salad and they were sold out at 3pm on a Friday. Had to wait for coffee creamer as it had gone bad in the bowl - ice had turned to water. Milkshake was full of bubbles and melted really fast, we had discussion as to whether it was safe to drink. Service was not great, guess they are used to ignoring students.

Healthy, clean food option

We ordered from here last night and was delightfully surprised. Normally I am not one that strays for take-out, especially if it is not organic or vegetarian, but because my husband insisted I had to give in.

We got the spring rolls, tofu hot pot and mixed veggies with a curry sauce. It was fresh and hot. What was a relief was that the food did not have see excess grease floating around, which is quite common for Chinese cuisine. No msg on the food was also a plus. The bill came out quite inexpensive and managed to fill us so we were good to go. If I ever wanted Chinese take out, I would consider ordering again. In a city like this one where Chinese food can be found in abundance, delivering food that actually stands out can be quite the task.

Budget Pho!!
By richie_rich of vancouver (45 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 22, 2015 - 3:21am [Dine in]

Hello there,
Well, this is my one of buddy's favorite places for Vietnamese. I been here several years now and the food is pretty solid. Parking is good...they have it on both sides of the restaurant. We tend to avoid rush hours so 7pm or 8pm is just fine with us. Yes, the place is run down and dingy...looks like it was once a Mediterranean restaurant in its previous incarnation. Spotty utensils...sometimes but you can clean that with hot tea and a napkin. Service is a bit robotic but the food comes out pretty fast.
My favorites:
1) Special large pho and one spring roll combo ( on a chalk board in-between 2 sets of doors as you walk in). I usually order No.5 Pho Tai Nam (rare and cooked slices of beef) or No.6 Pho Tai Gan (rare beef and tendon) or No.9 Pho Chin Gan ( cooked beef and tendon) and comes with the usually garnishes. The spring roll is standard fare but keep in mind its on a Chinese type wrapper and not the rice version. Caveat..funny thing I don't drink the broth here...a tad much MSG in the base but for $8.50.... great deal for such a large portion.
2) No.24 fairly large salad rolls(Goi Cuon x2) with shrimp and pork for $6 bucks...a good split pay item...same with No.18 (Cha Gio x2) for $5.75.
3) No.29 Bun Thit Nuong Cha Gio good size bowl dish of one spring roll, grilled slices of lemongrass pork with rice vermicelli and pickled veggies for $8.50.
4) No.32 Com Cari Bo Vietnamese style curry beef and steamed rice. Semi-tender to tender beef brisket with(looks like) frozen peas and carrots for $8.50.....again large portion...good enough for 2 meals if you want.
So, for a quick cheap meal..stop here. Most of the menu items are under $10 bucks. Payment?? ....usually easier just pay the front end cashier than wait for the bill to arrive (hint hint). They take cash and debit. Thanks for reading.

We had a few awesome breakfasts here. The prices are unbelievable, you can have bacon eggs hash browns and toast and coffee for about $6.00. It is kind of self service, order at the counter pick up at the counter and put your dirty dishes on the counter bin. There is no where else you can eat all this for $6.00. We have been there a few times now. Gordy has done a few updates. Painted the place new covers on booths etc. It is not the Ritz but then $6.00 will not even cover the parking there.

Hello there,
Last wednesday was a hooking up with some buds at this place of which.... one of them works near by as an engineer. Why not...give it shot. Took me a good 35 minutes to reach this place from eastvan via highway 1, exit Gaglardi Way, right on lougheed, left on North Road and straight into a Korean strip mall about a 1/4 way up. Some free parking as I was quite late for our 1230pm lunch.
As I stepped in...the boys were already slurping up rice noodles. One had the usual beef ball and other had flank steak with a helping of spring rolls. I had to raise my hand to get the attention of the waitress. Got the menu...played it safe. I ordered the small No.2 eye round steak with well done flank ($7.50)...only problem...ran out of eye of round which kind of sucked so more flank. Plus a single piece of spring roll ($2.30).
Waited for about 7 minutes for my soup to arrival and the waitress forgot my garnishes...so another minute of waitin. Verdict...rice noodles were a squarer rice noodle than the usual flat ones...had more texture and slightly firmer...it was good. The soup base..mild not salty or MSGed to hell. The flank...nothing special. The spring roll was the Chinese version of the skin with the usual suspect filling...crisp good like the ones at Thai son.
Overall, alright. Would I come again???....Hmmm damn far for pho considering there were tons of pho places in my neck of woods but if I worked or lived in the area...this might be the standard. In fact, Pho 99 has got tons of locations in the subs. I noticed it got busy right after we left at 1:25 pm..construction workers and suits..nice mix of clients.
Thanks for reading.

Fatburger1101 Denman St., Vancouver
A Cheddar Detour
By richie_rich of vancouver (45 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 19, 2015 - 3:20am [Dine in]

Hello there,
I haven't had a good beef burger in months and one of my buddies had an appointment with the justice system to grieve a ticket he got makin a left turn during rush hours...oops!! Anyways, we decided on Fatburger after his run in with the law...we pegged a time of 130pm as it would be a non lunch zoo.
Parking is a bit of b**ch..... expensive on Denman Street if there is space and no parking after 3pm. Myself....I usually pay park on the side street of the Denman Mall next to No Frills or just a block in..free 2 hour parking on the left side or right side. I was lucky enough to find one just there.
I stepped inside the joint...nice modern 1950s decor with chrome accents..like all the other Fatburgers. My buddy was already inside ordering his meal....6oz burger with combo of fries and pop. I decided on the 6oz burger { MickyD's are 4oz quarter pounder} with Canadian Cheddar ($1.19) with my free topping of just RED relish, grilled onions and deli pickles. ADD a combo ($4.99)..... instead of fries or salad...got a side order of onion rings and of course the bottomless drink for a grand total of $14.88 and small tip of 50 cents. I have to add the cashier who was doing my order was the supervisor...he did things in a orderly and professional manner...no problems there. Anyways, got a number tag and sat down.
We had to wait about 5 to 8 minutes for our food to arrive. Verdict...my burger was tasty...beef was lean and semi juicy. The addition of cheddar and relish...brings back old school memories of a greasy spoon cafe on Princess street. My onion rings...well...non greasy ..standard fare..I still think A&W's rings are still the champ in this dept.
All in all...good burger...ok rings. Price is a tad expensive. A soft recommendation...a non occasionally treat. I almost forgot...what happened in court??...found out he beat the rap as the the copper did not show up to defend his issued ticket. All he said "I rather have burgers than a ticket anytime." I agree. Thanks for reading.

My roomie introduced me to this place last year and since then I’ve come back a couple of times for second and third helpings. Even my boyfriend approved of it, which is a good sign cause he’s very picky.

I would have to say eating in is much better than take out - I think the food comes fresher and faster, and the experience is better. There's a huge variety of dishes to choose from, but the ones that deserve all the praise are the chicken ones. You can't go wrong with a chicken teriyaki or orange peel chicken here.

Prices are a little on the high side for Chinese I would say, but if you are a foodie like myself, you won’t mind paying extra.

We got there on a sunday at 11:10am and the waiter told us if we ordered not the regular deal breakfast for $5.99. Then we would not know when our food would be done if we ordered on the menu.

So we waited till 11:45am and still wasnt ready yet, then went to the back and checked and the order would take another 20 mins.

So it looked like they didnt even start the order so we leaved the place right away.We waited for so long and the server even made us to pay our coffee!! "I mean really" what's wrong with this restaurant.

Looks like we had a a bad experience so we will never go back again :(

I tried this place when I found them online just looking for some pizza in Vancouver. I ordered through their website and it was a great service. Really easy and in around 2 minutes somebody was calling me to confirm my order. After 30 minutes or so they arrived with my "Bubba Gump" pizza (great reference btw) and it really surprised me. The taste was great and original. A lot of this fraser places stand out just because of pricing but these guys are worth a little bit more.

Submitted Friday, May 15, 2015 - 8:49pm [Dine in]

At lunch they always hit the mark. It's hopping busy most days so be prepared to wait during peak hours. The menu is ultra simple, 1 taco for $6, 2 for $10, a burrito, nachos, tortilla soaps, that's about it. The concept is they only do what they do well and nothing else. The concept works, there is brilliance in the KISS principle. We have had all the tacos and our favourites are the tuna, pork jowl, and tempura although I think they are all equally good, it's just personal preference. My hubby loves the burrito here as well. Drinks are decent and reasonable, we especially like the Caesars. The service has been efficient and congenial every time we've been here, no one's trying to pretend they're anyone they're not or trapsing around trying to serve you on stilettos. They just say flat out on the menu no substitutions so if you're high maintenance, ultra fussy or have allergies that need to be catered to this might not be the ideal place for you. Also, a majority of the seating requires sharing tables which is only a problem if you think it is.
