Sasaya Bistro7538 Royal Oak Avenue, Burnaby
Nice BBQ and Hotpot Combo
Submitted Saturday, April 25, 2009 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

This seems very similar to Han Ju Hotpot, a taiwanese style of hotpot with korean influences.

I ordered the bbq and hotpot combo, very spicy. It was good but I don't think I would go out of my way to eat here as Han Ju is closer to where I live. It does have the combo option which HJ doesn't offer and fits the bill when you want a little of everything. Price is very reasonable.

I miss the free banchans provided in the typical korean restaurant and hate having to pay extra for side dishes.

what a find!
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 8:39pm [Dine in]

Who knew there was this little gem in Richmond? It's a lot like Fujiya, in Vancouver, which I frequent a lot but I really appreciated their use of brown rice in their sushi rolls, which is a healthier option from white rice. I also liked some of their other items, especially their unagi don which was delicious.

It was fun just to poke around and look at all the japanese products that I don't usually encournter at other stores.

Harvest Moon Bakery Boutique7771 Westminster Highway, #160, Richmond
Love the artisan bakery touch
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 8:32pm [Dine in]

I found this new bakery offers some interesting twists to the usual asian bakery. There were some unique combinations and all the product were attractive-looking and individually wrapped. The artisan breads were also a nice touch and I was told that they will continue to experiment with whole wheat, depending on the demand. They also had free samples of their yummy desserts.

This just might turn out to be the asian Ecco Il Pane equivalent.

garlic anyone?
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 8:25pm [Dine in]

The atmosphere was similar to the Honolulu restaurant that was previously here. Typical HK cafe.

I found the added malaysian flavours an interesting addition to the HK cafe style of food. I had the steak and rice combo and was impressed by the very garlicky sauce on top.

Good value and love the garlic.

Veggie Bunch6611 Buswell Street, Richmond
A rare vegetarian buffet
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 8:21pm [Dine in]

I've wanted to try this place for awhile as there are very few vegetarian buffets around.

There were plenty of vegetable dishes and soy dishes to choose from. I found the fried rice to be outstanding. It was nice that they replenish the dishes in small batches. They may use a lot of oil, as I found at least one dish to e quite oily. I didn't see as many interesting varieties as posted previously, but overall I was pretty satisfied with what they did have.

My favourite dessert was the red bean soup with black rice and I ended up having 2 bowls. I probably overdid it with ice cream on top of that.

It's not much for ambiance, but it's still worth checking out if you need to eat more vegetables.

soul warming pho
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

It took a bit to find this place as I thought it was near the chinese mall area near No. 3, but it was actually hidden away on Garden City and Capstan in a nondescript mini-mall.

I was not disappointed. The soup was simple and clean as advertised. I also like that it was non-oily. All pho prices are only $6 and you can also request a spicy soup for an extra $1 which I will definitely try next time. I would have liked extra basil, but the overall blend of flavours was well balanced.

It was pretty quiet when I went, but I got very warm vibes. I like the bar stool bar type of set up as it feels like a lot like how the fast food places that I see in asian dramas might be like. Just simple plain good food for the average joe.

Someone else ordered the grilled chicken sandwich which sounded really good too. Rounded out with an iced coffee and free fortune cookies, it was a pretty yummy lunch.

Great for a dark and dreary rainy Vancouver day.

A Little Disappointed
Submitted Sunday, October 5, 2008 - 3:53pm [Dine in]

When I read the reviews, I was very excited to try this place.

However, I was in a bit of a rush, so I wasn't in the best mood to try this place. I didn't see any combos of any sort mentioned by other reviewers and when my dish arrived. they forgot my rice.

As I watched my food get cold, it started to get more and more unappetizing, so I just got up and left.

Oh well, maybe next time. Or not. The food did not look that good anyways.

Da Rae Korean Restaurant3510 Kingsway, Vancouver
Dependable Korean Food Casual Style
Submitted Tuesday, September 9, 2008 - 1:53am [Dine in]

Whenever I get a craving for no-nonsense korean comfort food, this has become a recent favourite. While I like the kalbi at their sister restaurant (Cho Sun) more, my friend loves their marinade here. I was also pleasantly surprised by their very tasty jupchae and I love their jajengmeun. Their bibimbap is standard, while the fried chicken is also yummy. I would like to taste their pajeon and tofubo next. Didn't see any kimbap on the menu however.

I love the fact that it is very authentic as the waitress barely speaks any english and it is mostly full of korean customers.

So-so lunch special
Submitted Monday, July 21, 2008 - 9:39pm [Dine in]

I guess for $5.99 you shouldn't expect much. The meat portion was a little skimpy and everything else was unmemmorable. I only remember being in a large restaurant which had only a few tables filled and yet still having difficulty getting attention from the servers. They kept disappearing into the kitchen or were just standing around chatting. I would not go back again even if it was cheap.

Food court option
Submitted Monday, July 21, 2008 - 8:58pm [Dine in]

This is a good option when you're craving korean food at the food court. I have tried several different items and enjoy the pancheon and mandu's the most. Prices are lower than sit down korean restaurants.

I haven't really been impressed by their combo meals though and I do miss the banchans.

I expected more . . .
Submitted Monday, July 21, 2008 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

With a name like Dai Jang Kum I was expecting something extraordinary. While the decor was nice, the food was only so-so. I ordered a dish which you have to cook yourself, but being a newbie at this, I wasn't sure how to do this. Also, the flame kept shutting off, which was annoying.

The food tasted better near the end when the flavours all had a chance to come together, but I wish the server had explained what was the best way to cook the food.

Cho Sun Korean Restaurant3486 Kingsway St., Vancouver
Great BBQ Ribs Lunch Specials
Submitted Monday, July 21, 2008 - 8:44pm [Dine in]

This has become my favourite lunch restaurant when I have a craving for korean BBQ ribs. The tantalizing smells and that charbroiled flavour doesn't get any better. While they're a little skimpy on the meat portions, the lunch combos all include a noodle dish and yummy banchans (refillable of course). You'll definitely go away full. I just wish there was a bit more meat.

The service is so-so as I find that korean speakers get more attention, but hey that's ok with me. I'm westernized so I'm not shy about flagging the servers down and they're usually very polite afterwards. A little korean goes a long way,

Honey Doughnuts and Goodies4373 Gallant Ave, North Vancouver
Greasy and Unappetizing
Submitted Sunday, July 20, 2008 - 7:38pm [Dine in]

I recently went to Honey's and was very disappointed by the server's surly attitude. She was an older woman and it appeared that she was tired and grumpy and didn't want to be there. I didn't see her smile once or say thank you to customers.

Even more disappointing were the greasy doughnuts. Perhaps, if they were fresh they may have tasted better but they appeared as if they had been sitting awhile under the plastic cover. They did not look very appetizing and I only tried it because I've read the positive reviews.

This will be first and last visit for me.

Thank god the gelato store saved the visit to Deep Cove from becoming a total disaster.
