A new fav
Submitted Sunday, June 8, 2014 - 6:23pm [Dine in]

Joined friends for lunch here for the first time. You would never know what the inside looks like from looking at it from the outside. A lot of scratch made food, just amazing burger. The best hot wings I have had in a while. Nice service, friendly. I have not been at night before, so maybe more pub like then, but we have been back several times and we will be back again for sure.

Texx Big Burger14783 108 Ave, Surrey
Great Burgers!
Submitted Saturday, June 29, 2013 - 6:51pm [Dine in]

An unexpected stop at Texx burger today. Greeted by a wonderful man perhaps the owner? Great sense of humour and very friendly!

I had the single cheese burger with mayo, pickles, ketchup and onions. WOW, so good, great flavor. And toppings are free.
rainbowcrab had the single cheese burger with bacon, and she loved the burger giving it an 8 out of 10!
Fries are hand made but a small one is good for 2 people it is so big!

We will be back!
We want to try the Nathan's hot dog next time we go.

We have been ordering take out for Deer Lake Wonton for years. We have tried other local take Chinese take out, but always end up back here.
It is very Canadian Chinese food, but solid food for a solid price.
They do deliver very quickly.

We will continue to order from here.

Burgers Etc. BBQ House4091 Hastings St., Burnaby
Great local BBQ, and amazing sauce
Submitted Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 4:39pm [Dine in]

We finally had a chance to try out Burgers-Etc. Of course we did not get a burger this time round. Rainbowcrab had the smothered fries with pulled pork. She loved it! Raved about the pork, the bbq sauce and the fries. The sauce is sweeter tomato based kind with a good kick.
I had the combo which was on sale for only 13.99$ It came with 2 meats of my choice, fries and coleslaw.
I chose ribs and beef brisket. They were both very good. Tender, good flavour. I like my brisket a bit thicker cut, but still very good. I would go back again for sure.
One draw back of this place, rainbow crab says the woman's washroom is horrid. The door does not create any privacy, as it has a wide gab and does not go below your knees as you sit... HUM...

Not so good
Submitted Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 8:14pm [Dine in]

I will start by saying the owners are so very nice and friendly. Sadly the food was not so good.
I had the bento box a with avocado roll subed in for the california roll.
The gyoza's tasted like they had been microwaved, and the rolls had a very fishy smell and I had not fish.
The chicken teryaki was so dry and very little sauce to help make it easier to eat.
Rainbow crab, sadly was felt ill after we ate there,,
we will not return..

Rumpus Room2689 Main Street, Vancouver
2 things off my bucket list eating here.
Submitted Friday, May 3, 2013 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

Our journey took us to the Rumpus room today. Mostly cause they had 2 things I had on my bucket list.
This being, Deep fried bacon and deep fried avocado. They did not disappoint. The avocado was cripy on the outside and soft in the inside and NOT greasy. Bacon was perfect. The dipping sauces that came with them were also great. We both loved this appy! Check those off my bucket list.

For the main I had the breakfast poutine, all of which I loved, although i felt the gavy needed more flavour.
Rainbow crab tried the burger, of course,,, she said it was ok. The atmosphere was very kitchy which we loved, We went when it was not too busy. I can see this place being squishy when it get's busy.
Service was excellent. Very nice friendly young people. We look forward to going back. Next on my list to try is their deep fried pickles.

Hog Shack3900 Bayview Street, #160, Richmond
Great BBQ
Submitted Saturday, April 20, 2013 - 5:15pm [Dine in]

We finally had the chance to try this restaurant. We started by asking for, and sharing a plate of burnt ends. For those who placed reviews here about burnt ends, understand what you are ordering before you ditch them. This meat is is cut from the fatty part of the brisket, and thus there will be fat often still with the ends.
We really enjoyed them, but they were very rich. But wow the flavour.

I had the brisket plate with beans and coleslaw. The brisket was tender, with some fat not too much sauce. The beans were a bit sweet for me, but very good. I could not finish it all, so I will have some wonderful leftovers for dinner.
Rainbowcrab had the burger, she loved it, although she said she wish it had more of a grill flavour.

We will go back for sure, I want to try the ribs and rainbow wants to try the chilli hotdog.

Fish tacos a surprise delight.
Submitted Saturday, January 19, 2013 - 10:13am [Dine in]

Last night we went to Cockney Kings.
I finally decided to try their fish tacos, although
I was a bit nervous, it being a british fish shop.

I was delightfully surprised at how amazing their were

3 very good size tacos for a great price
Amazing taste
and their what-what sauce is soooo good!

I will be getting these again for sure.

I have to add, the service there is outstanding as usual.

House of Wings7155 Kingsway, #145, Burnaby
Why did we bother
Submitted Tuesday, December 18, 2012 - 6:20pm [Dine in]

Due to the snow fall, we decided to have lunch near where we live. We decided to give The House of Wings
another try. It has been a few years since we had gone before and they were still there, so I thought perhaps it might be ok.
Big mistake!
The ambiance was like a dive bar with dirty carpet, chipped tables and the top of the table was sticky. We asked the waitress to wipe it off, she did so, and we soon realized it was still sticky.

I had the wings, The were so so... with just a shaker of spice sprinkled over my dry ones.
Rainbowcrab had fish and chips. The fish was actually ok looking and tasting, but the fries were cold and not fully cooked.
We had 2 servers. The female whispered and we could not hear her or understand her. The male was perky
and very nice.
Ok no more,,, and hope one day we will get another restaurant there.

De Dutch Pannekoek House1634 Capilano Road, North Vancouver
Great Dutch Pancake breakfast
Submitted Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 5:42pm [Dine in]

We decided on brunch this morning with a gift certificate for DeDutch.
It was Sunday morning at 11 am. We had to wait about 10 mins.

I agree with others, this place is very small. Although I find that many other of the DeDutch restaurants are also very small. I am not sure why.

But once I was seated I did not really care about the size of the place.

The coffee arrived right away, and was regularly filled, and we even got more cream when we were running low and we did not even ask.

I had the Boer’s (Farmer’s) which includes
Hash Browns, Ham, DeBakon*, Bratwurst,
Eggs and Hollandaise all places on a large dutch thin pancake, or what we might call a crepe.

The hashbrowns were my least favourite, not much flavour and not crisp enough.
My sunnyside eggs were perfect!, the bacon and ham were great and the Bratwust was amazing. It
was full of flavour, so juicy with a perfect grill char. I loved it.

The dutch pancake was great, with a bit of a chew to it, I would like to try it plain with lemon and sugar next time.

Rainbowcrab had the french toast with egg and bacon. She really enjoyed it all.

We got a great amount of food and left full and satisfied.
We will go back.

Genji Japanese Restaurant7533 Market Crossing, Burnaby

Submitted Saturday, March 10, 2012 - 7:58pm [Dine in]

This place is near my office, and although I do agree with other posters it is a bit pricey, I really enjoy the
food, and think that everything I have had has been wonderful.

The people who work there are hard working, It can get very busy and I have seen the girls actually running around.

The woman who is older, who I think is the mother, sometimes takes orders, and I do not think her english is very good, as she did get my order wrong once.

But they are so kind and helpful, they keep my tea full and my belly happy!
I will continue to return.

Basil's Subs125 West 3rd Street, North Vancouver
A mixed review
Submitted Saturday, March 10, 2012 - 7:41pm [Take-out]

Rainbowcrab and I went here with our groupon. I was very excitied to try the slow roasted lamb. I was sad to discover that they did not have the lamb at this location, but did at the Pemberton location. So I decided to try and roasted sirloin steak sandwich, and chose to have it with mayo, the spicy cilantro sauce ( Mmmm)
red and green peppers,onions and lettuce.
My sandwich was ok,, the meat was very dry. I was so disappointed by this. The sauce and bread were amazing. But that did not make up for the meat.

Rainbowcrab however had a more traditional sandwich. She had the turkey cold cut, and chose the spinich avacado spread, with a variety of veggies. She LOVED her sandwich!

Both sandwiches were huge and worth the money. We both want to go back. Yes i still want to try the lamb.

So will have to let you know how it goes.
Oh and the service was very friendly and helpful.

Submitted Saturday, February 25, 2012 - 9:24pm [Dine in]

We had a chance today to go to Five Guys at Park Royal
I had been to one in Milwaukee, and had enjoyed it. Of course it is more expensive here
than down there.
I had the cheese burger, rainbowcrab had a bacon cheese burger and we shared a fries. And yes 2 adults can share 1 small fries, they are huge!

They were good, I enjoyed the toppings, and loved the fries. I also really enjoyed the free peanuts.

Rainbowcrab liked her burger, said it had very good taste, but for some reason hers was cold.
not sure how that happened as they grill them right there?

I would go back, would like to try a hot dog next time.

Splitz Grill4242 Main Street, Vancouver
Great Burgers and amazing mix of toppings.
Submitted Monday, September 5, 2011 - 11:57am [Dine in]

Both Rainbow crab and I decided to try the Splitz grill while on Main Street. Our first time. The first thing that I really loved was the wide array of free toppings. Some very unique ones too. Rainbow crab is a bit of a purist, and she had a basic bacon and cheddar with fries. But she loved it, the char on the burger, but juicy with each bite.
I had the basic burger with fried onions, thier special sauce, salsa, mayo, onions and wow was it amazing.

Some other toppings include Hummous, Baba Ganough,(sp) cucumbers, sprouts, bbq sauce, hot sauce, hot peppers, and on and on the list goes.

The fries were great, and I can not wait to go back!

The skirts sure are short
Submitted Friday, July 29, 2011 - 3:48pm [Dine in]

I really do not understand why the servers skirts need to be so short..

Beyond that, have been here a few times with people from work. I find it so over prices, with food that is not as good as Earls.

Last time I had the wings, they were pretty good, but wow they are expensive.

Will make other suggestions to my coworkers next time.

Samba Brazilian Steak House1122 Alberni Street, Vancouver
A wonderful evening, with great food.
Submitted Friday, July 29, 2011 - 3:42pm [Dine in]

We decided to buy the Groupon for this place as we had been before and enjoyed the food.
When we arrived we were greated in a friendly manner, and seated. Right away our drink orders were taken and some cheese buns and fried banana arrived at the table.
We started at the buffet. It does not have the widest variety of things, but what they had was fresh and tasty.
We love the guacamole, so smooth. They also have some hot dishes there such as fish and rice.

Once we sat down the meat came. A wide variety of juicy meat, such as lamb, sirloin, pork roast, pork and beef ribs, chicken wrapped in bacon, pork sausages and even grilled pineapple

They slice the meat for you and you take it with tongs. The slices are not big, they are not meant to be. How I have a very large appitite, and I ate till I was full and happy.

We left very happy with the visit and having a groupon sure helped..

We will go back again for sure.

Poor Italian Trattoria & Ristorante3296 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver
An Amazing Dining Experience
Submitted Sunday, March 20, 2011 - 8:45am [Dine in]

A date night tonight, and we chose The Poor Italian.
We made reservations, we like to dine early so we made reservations for 5:30pm. Althought quiet then, by 6pm, it was packed. So I suggest reservatons.
We had a lovely relaxed evening. The service was excellent. Very attentive.

We started with the Antipasto, wow it was so much food, with fresh smoked Salmon, olives, beans, eggplant etc, all you can wish for in an Antipasto.

I had the Rack of Lamb, which came with roasted veg. I must admit the veg left a bit to be desired, but the lamb was amazing, a very good serving, full of flavour. I just loved it. One of the best things I have eaten in while.

SL had one of the specials, basically spagetti and meatballs, but that name does not do it justice. The sauce had such depth, the meatballs, had a hint of heat that played off the sauce. She loved it!

We decided to have dessert too, I had the Dark Chocolate Terrine, which was a chocolate lovers delight.
SL had the Tiramisu, and it was so light and fluffy, she said it melted in your mouth.

This place was packed, so I do suggest a reservation, but I could see the wait staff working so hard to seat everyone, and judge when people will move on.

Although a bit pricey for my normal dining, we would go back in a heart beat.

Buffet at River Rock, The8811 River Rd., Richmond
Enjoyable evening
Submitted Saturday, September 18, 2010 - 3:30pm [Dine in]

We decided to go to the River Rock Buffet as we were going to a concert there.
I was a bit worried from the reviews here.

First I need to compliment the staff on excellent staff. The were there to meet every need, clearing our plates away and refilling our water and pop glasses right away.

We started with the salad bar, full of a variety of lettuce and salads such as corn salad, lentil salad, potato salad etc. Fresh dressings and buns. It was a Friday night so they also had crab legs, shrimp and oysters.

There was a sushi bar on friday night as well.

The hot food, did not have a huge selection, but the quality of most of the food was excellent.
I had the dim sum which was great, as was the roast and au jus. Rainbowcrab had the pasta and loved it.

There was a wide variety of desserts, although not as much chocolate as I like.

I acutally had more salad bar for dessert I liked it so much.
Although a bit on the high end of price, we really enjoyed it and would go back again.

Los Compadres4280 Hastings, Burnaby
A surprise find
Submitted Saturday, August 21, 2010 - 4:18pm [Dine in]

As we drove down Hastings, we noticed this Mexican restaurant. We decided to try it out.
Being 2 pm on a Saturday is was not busy, but the staff greeted us and were friendly and helpful.

I had the 4 soft tacos. 2 chicken and 2 beef. The salsa/sauces they gave us were great. Home made and very tastey. We loved the green sauce, spicey but with such incredible flavour. I could not get enough of it.

Rainbowcrab had the beef burrito, and it was HUGE, and although there is a lot of rice she said it was full of beef and the rice had a wonderful flavour.

The prices were very good.

We are very excited about discovering this place and plan to go back a lot!
