Gordy's Cafe9535 Scott Road, Delta
Great Breakfast with my friend Louise
By Natural1 of Delta BC (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, May 20, 2015 - 5:48pm [Dine in]

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 (47 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.

Chinese Chicken spot
By michwilliams of vancouver (9 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2015 - 11:40am [Dine in]

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.

By onin of Langley B C (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, May 17, 2015 - 11:45am [Dine in]

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 :(

One of the best pizza places for me in Vancouver

Submitted Saturday, May 16, 2015 - 2:16pm [Dine in]

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.

last night, we went to the Chinese Restaurant based on a local's recommendation. We liked the fact that it is a neighborhood place. The staff were friendly and polite. Good range of dishes and portions were okay. Extensive cocktail list but they are not that fantastic. Food was fresh and well cooked. Friendly staff and not too pricey

Tacofino Comissary, The2327 E Hastings St, Vancouver
Simple, Tasty, Fresh
By WeLoveFood of North Vancouver (44 Reviews)
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.

Fatty Cow Seafood Hot Pot5108 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
A fun and interactive meal...
By WeLoveFood of North Vancouver (44 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 15, 2015 - 8:17pm [Dine in]

We were a party of 8 on Sunday after Chinese New Year, 2 families, mixed nationalities. This is very fun experience. A couple of people at our table weren't so adventurous and I think they had a hard time with the concept of cooking all the food, the communal boiling soup, etc. but that's nothing to do with the restaurant, just something to consider if you're bringing guests who aren't used to Asian food. The food was plentiful, in fact we over ordered and had to send some back! We liked the prawns, marinated beef, dumplings, wontons, noodles and veggies. Lots of selection and variety, maybe even a little too much. The value is absolutely great for the sheer quantity of food including seafood and very fresh greens of all kinds. This is a fun meal to go out for once in awhile, maybe not something to have when it's super hot out or if you're not very hungry. We booked an early table and got excellent service to start with but once the place filled up the servers were really stressed to keep up but still did their best. We found the "time limit" to be a non-issue because we had more than enough time to order, cook, eat and do it all over again until we were completely satisfied. We would do this again, absolutely without a doubt. Great value because this is an entertaining activity (the cooking part) as well as a meal.

Via Tevere Pizzeria Napoletana1190 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Worth waiting in line for...
By WeLoveFood of North Vancouver (44 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 15, 2015 - 8:08pm [Dine in]

Our first time here was about 3 months ago and we've been back 5 times already and we are NOT avid pizza eaters! This is traditional Naples style pizza, so not very similar to the Panago, Domino Little Caesars poor excuse of pizza we North Americans are used to. We heard Via Tevere imports the flour and don't know if it's true or not but it TASTES true! It's a busy place, no resos so get here when they first open. They are only open for dinner and there will be a line up around the corner if you get there 10 minutes later. The service is casual but friendly and efficient. Everything we've tried has been a hit. So far we've ordered caprese and arugula salads, both dressed just right and the arugula salad is big enough for meal with some bread. Antipasto platter has all the elements we like, good mix of meats, cheese, pickled/roasted veg, more than enough to share. Be forewarned, the meatballs are moist, tasty, and addictive. But the star of the show is obviously the pizza. We like the Napoletana best but all the pizzas we see served to other tables look awesome. It's all about the basics, the oven and the simplicity. We did order the daily pasta one time and my hubby liked it but I didn't think it was stellar. Still, why would you come to the best pizza place in town an not order pizza? If you still have room share a donut for dessert. I'm not much for sweets but I found the donut to be yummy. My teenage son inhaled 2 of these donuts without even blinking.

In Grain Pastificio1133 Mt. Seymour Rd, North Vancouver
First Impression... Meh.
By WeLoveFood of North Vancouver (44 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 15, 2015 - 8:00pm [Dine in]

Brand spanking new place serving alternative / gluten free pastas located in the Safeway plaza on the way up to Mount Seymour. We are local diners and since there are only about 4 decent eateries in the area we zoomed over as soon as they opened to see the digs and check out the food. We always want to like and support the local eateries but judging by our initial visit this will not be anywhere on the top of our "local" bites list.

Let's start with the positive. The decor is well done. Stone, wood, glass elements all carefully integrated... it's a nice place to walk into. It goes a little downhill from here...

Onto the service. They have modeled this place after places like Formosa Pizzeria on the drive where they give you a menu and a seat then you go order at the counter (a tip is expected when you pay for the food) and then take your own drinks and water to the table and wait for someone to bring your food. Question begs why is a tip expected up front when you're not sure what the quality of food or service is going to be? My dinner partner ordered and paid and tipped 10% instead of our usual 15% and said he felt stupid giving them anything but was too embarrassed not to. Still, if the food was good we could deal with this set up.

So, the food: We ordered a Salumi plate (antipasto), a mixed green salad and kamut pasta. Pay attention people, go to Via Tevere on Victoria Drive and see how to do a real antipasto platter!
The best thing was the bread, proper semi-dunkel rustic european style bread. When a restaurant puts the bread on the platter you know they're just filling up real estate with it. Bread should be served on the side or serve it on a larger board. The salad was drenched and I mean drenched in vinaigrette. Both of us are salad lovers and will eat almost anything resembling a salad, but the dressing was way too sweet and did I say drenched? It came in a little 70's era soup bowl and was basically a clump of soggy greens with a ton of either raisins or dried berries and some sunflower or other seeds. All we could say was YUCK. The kamut pasta was tossed with peas, I think ricotta and arugula. Somehow it managed to be hot only in the very middle and pretty much cold radiating out. It was edible, that's the best I can say. All pastas are about $15.00. Cheap for a restaurant but expensive for a self service place....

I told my dining partner we should let them get their training wheels off and go back and try them again in a few weeks but he said I'd have to go with someone else, he was so not impressed!

Submitted Friday, May 15, 2015 - 7:48pm [Dine in]

Went for dinner and sat outside between pub and cafe. Lovely street front bar table- best in the place I think on a SUNny day. Two great ciders on tap!! Excellent. Beer selection is disgusting!!! Mostly ales only ONE lager- original 16. Not ONE normal beer. Not one. No bud, no Canadian no Kokanee no corona, no carlsburg no nothing. Hubby not happy does by like ale.

Hubby liked burger and fries were good. I had pizza- could have been good but crust ended up soggy and the whole thing could have had a whole lot more flavour.

Sat outside and when it got cold we wanted to move inside and transfer bill . We're told we had to pay before we moved in. I asked if that was policy and she said no but because it was a "bigger" bill 4 drinks and dinner she would make us pay. I asked why and if management said this. She said she was " sort of a manager". And if they don't do that the staff gets " ripped off". On a tip I guess. Very poorly handled . You never talk about tips to a customer. She got ripped of on her tip for that comment. Backfire.

Waitresses were pretty low class - most kinda skanky and tattooed except one. Limited menu which would be ok if all the items hit the marks . On the fence with this place

Okonomi Sushi620 6th Street, New Westminster
Renovated dining area and much better food quality!
By doughgirl of New Westminster (40 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 14, 2015 - 6:57pm [Dine in]

My husband & I live across the street from this restaurant and over the past couple months we would hear construction sounds at the restaurant in the late evenings. We wondered what was going on and today we discovered the new and improved "Okonomi".
We stopped eating there years ago because service was very poor (long wait time for order) and food quality was barely enjoyable.
We have at eaten at several different sushi restaurants in the Lower Mainland and this restaurant & location has gone from being one of our most disappointing experiences to one of our most pleasantly surprising!
Tonight we selected item 79. BENTO BOX B, 152. PORK KATSU, and 20. MAPLE ROLL (which is offered spicy, but we asked for unspicy).
We decide if a sushi restaurant is good based on the quality and presentation of its raw fish. The fish in the 'complete meal' and roll was so creamy and fresh. Rice portion used to be almost grotesquely out of proportion to the rest of the food at this restaurant, but instead it was neat & tidy in its place - there to support the other items, not be the star attraction.
And putting up with the sound of a saw at 10 o'clock at night was so worth being able to sit at one of the elegant & private booths that replaced the once school cafeteria style tables.
Good job!

We brought two friends and had five fantastic dishes.
The vegetable dish done just right, with a perfect amount of crunch in the beans and asparagus, and the mushrooms were nutty and flavourful.
The crispy ginger beef had just the right crunch and spiciness.
The seafood hot pot was sizzling when it arrived, so a delightful presentation.
I loved the fried tofu wedges. I'm sure I ate more than my share.
Our server, Debbie, was friendly and helpful.
This was good value for a reasonable price.

Submitted Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

I usually never go to a different starbucks other than the one outside the foodcourt at guildford mall.. But i was in the area and decided to drop by for my chai latte. There was only 3 people infront of me and i waited almost half an hour for my drink. There was only one girl making the drink and all of the coworkets were so bad and lazy. they just stood around and talked. Throwing paper and pens around at other coworkers. Waited super super long for my drink and when i finaly got it she made the wrong order. She made a caramel macciato. After waiting another 5 mins for her to recorrect my order looking around they had a few staffs on hand and none of them did anything useful. Some of the people waiting infront of me for their drinks waited so long they got tired and had to sit. I dont see why it would take ao damn long to get a simple drink. Worst service EVER!! And it took so damn long. Never coming back. they made all the other starbucks look great thats for sure. I only wait 5-10 mins for my frap during happy hour too and there were many people infront. I would probably wait 2 hours for my drink if i went there. My god. Shitty ass service. Dont ever go there. Wasnt the first time i had bad experience there too. They need a manager. Asap.
