Worth the wait!
Submitted Saturday, January 23, 2010 - 3:19pm [Dine in]

I went there on a Saturday at around 11:30 with a group of 8 friends. The wait was about 20 to 25 minutes or so, not too bad for the time we arrived. It was totally worth the wait tho.

Service: The server was friendly, nice, and helpful. We were waiting for a couple of friends to arrive so the server came to check up on us a couple of times. She took our drink orders, then came right back when she saw that our other friends had arrived. During the meal, my coffee was always refilled just in time!

Food: I ordered the Frying Dutchman breakfast platter (Smoked sausage, sunny side up eggs, toast, hash brown, and salad.) The sliced sausages were moist and not too salty. The eggs were just how I like it; perfectly pouched yolk with a little bit of runny whites! Yummy! I love that it didn't feel greasy at all! Some other things my friends tried was the famous de pannekoke. The shrimp and chive one was my favourite! It was very flavourful! The waffles were light and fluffy also!

Value: My order was only $9.50 and coffee was only $2.20 (unlimited with a meal). The de pannekoke ranges from $10 to $14. It was well worth it for the amount of food you get!

Ambiance: It is decorated with a lot of wooden shoes and pictures of previous clients. It is a warm, friendly, and family atmosphere. It is a decent size with 3 different sections. It is a little difficult to seat large groups but they are very flexible in moving some tables for us. I would definitely go back!!

Food is consistent but service is slow.

Food is pretty consistent. It's decent food for incredible prices. The best deal there are the "bento" boxes there. You get a side of rice, salad, a choice of chicken/beef/pork/sashimi/tofu plus 3 more other side of a large variety of choices. Choices include cali roll, salmon/tuna sashimi, mussels, beef ribs, tempera, BBQ eel, eggs, cheese cake, bacon wrap, and many many more. (All very decent food) Plus a miso soup for $8.5, including tax. (Miso soup is kinda blan but I'm not really into that anyway.)

Service is super slow though. Usually there's only 1 waitress, 2 max. So don't go there when you're super hungry because you won't be getting you food anytime soon.

Ambiance. They used to have these Christmas lights on all the time. So it's like Christmas all year round! But they recently took it off and did some renovation so it's all good. Washroom is like a typical Asian restaurant; cold, metal everywhere, slight odor but passable.

Han Ju Tofu Hot Pot4500 Kingsway, #1218, Burnaby
Love the #3 Hot Pot dish on the menu!
Submitted Saturday, September 19, 2009 - 2:53pm [Dine in]

I've been there quite a few times but the only thing I've tried was #3 on the menu (the Korean Style Noodle Pot). I love it! I have cravings for it sometimes! You can request and control the spiciness in you soup. The soup and noodles are always flavourful and hot. It's pretty cheap for $5.95 each. Sometimes my friends would get the Korean BBQ pork on rice, that looks pretty good too!

Service: I could see why some people aren't too happy with the service because more often than not, there is a long wait for a table. But that only means it's good right? I think they service is average.

Seasons in the ParkWest 33rd & Cambie, Vancouver
Beautiful View
Submitted Sunday, June 28, 2009 - 4:15pm [Dine in]

I went with a party of 18. As someone else, they are definitely very capable of handling large parties. The server was very knowledgeable and friendly. All our food came together and it was still pretty warm, not hot but reasonable.

I would admit that the price of the menu is a little high but you really pay for the food and wonderful view that you also devour. I would definitely go back because I wanted to try their prime rib special. Which is a great 3 course deal for only $30 ( I think?)

House of Tofu Soup4563 North Road, #1&2, Burnaby
Overrated
Submitted Sunday, June 28, 2009 - 3:58pm [Dine in]

Went there because some friends said the food and value was pretty good. It's ok. I've definitely had better tofu soup at other places. I was expecting it to be really good because it's called "House of Tofu Soup"!! We ordered a few different tofu soups ranging from white to regular. It was my first visit there so I ordered the regular just in case the hot was too hot. But my regular soup was not spicy at all. We also ordered the seafood pancake, once again, it's mediocre.

Service: Oh goodness. Although we were seated immediately, we didn't get any water or tea until after we ordered, then I had to ASK them for tea. Food came at a decent amount of time. The one thing that threw us off was the fact that one waitress came to our table and grabbed the hot sauce bottle from us. She actually reached over my friend's shoulder from behind to grab it from the table without saying anything or asking if we still needed it! I don't think I will return.

Giuseppe's Bread and Deli, Da Vito3596 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Recommended by the Driving Examiner
Submitted Sunday, June 28, 2009 - 3:43pm [Dine in]

I just in the neighbourhood with a few of my girlfriends. We were looking for a place to grab some lunch. Then I remembered when I took my road test, the examiner actually recommended this little deli, during the test. So we thought it must be pretty good. It was 12:30 when we got there, the wait was about 15 to 20 mins, it was reeeeaaally busy. The tables were all full and there were a lot of customers lining up for take-out.

While we wait, they gave us a menu to look at so by the time we sat down, we were pretty much ready to order. A very friendly lady took our order. Nothing much happened there. We ordered the Spicy Chicken pasta, Beef Stew with pasta, Minestrone soup, and Panino sandwich. The pasta and stew were solid. The soup was a little disappointing because it wasn't what I expected. It's a clear stock soup rather than the tomato based one that I'm used to. But the sandwich made up for everything. The sandwich was excellent!! A must try!

The best part of this place is the service that you get. It's such a welcoming atmosphere because of the people there. Everyone was really friendly, kind, and really takes good care of you. The only awkward thing about this place is that it's also a grocery type store so we were eating next to hundreds of bottles of oil and vinegar.
