Green Pepper Vietnamese Cuisine3346 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Wonderfully fresh, tasty food
Submitted Monday, March 12, 2007 - 4:10pm [Dine in]

The food here is so FRESH, that's what keeps me coming up. I think this place is one of the better-kept secrets in Vancouver, although locals know it well.
The fried rice, the crispy Vietnamese rolls, the curries... they all keep people coming back for more.
One of the best fried rice's I've ever had... and I also suggest the tofu/vegetable curry with fresh basil. GREAT prices, good service, and you can also get most of the items on their extensive menu to take out. I've never been disappointed here! - the only dilemma is whether to try something new, or stick with my old favourites on the menu. YOU MUST try this place!

What people come here for is the healthy, fresh FOOD
Submitted Monday, March 12, 2007 - 3:09pm [Dine in]

A lot of people have been asking what the buzz is about, given that the service is mediocre, and you usually have to line up to get a seat for brunch.
Well, the lineup tells the story: the food is GREAT.
So fresh, so healthy. They use free-range eggs, and these are THE BEST I've ever tasted. In fact, I'd forgotten what eggs are supposed to taste like. They even sell them at the front counter, customers love them so much.
Next best thing: the bacon. Again, with all the processed, hormone/antibiotic-filled cr** we're used to eating, I'd forgotten what bacon is actually supposed to taste like. This was like NO OTHER I've ever had.
The portions are huge - in fact, I wish they were smaller, because I hate wasting (but you can just ask for less potato. Which are also marvelous). Coffee is great, orange juice is great. DO sit at the bar, because its' so much fun to watch them cook!
Down-side is definitely the service. I know they're busy, but if you're staff can't work it when it's busy, you shouldn't be offering that many covers. Plain and simple. I expect wait staff to come by at least once to ask how the meal is, but not as I'm FINISHING - I needed salt and pepper at the start of my meal, not at the end!
Anyway, check it out to see what fresh, healthy food is all about. (and I highly recommend the bacon and eggs). yes, you'll probably have to wait, but where don't you have to line up for brunch in Vancouver?

Great, fresh vegie food
Submitted Sunday, March 11, 2007 - 9:19pm [Dine in]

This little family-run cafe has been a favourite of mine for years. The food is mostly Indian, although toned down for a Western palate (there are items like vegie burgers, too), and wonderfully fresh and healthy. Some of their own creations are the best - be sure to try the Kathmandu Roll (spicy chickpeas, cucumber, and crispy noodles in a wrap) - healthy and filling, and even yummier when you pour on their wonderful tamarind sauce.
All dishes are around $5-7 - an incredible bargain. There are only a few tables inside, and a couple outside, but somehow there's always one free. The family who runs this place is friendly and kind - if you're in the area, you must check it out (even if you're not vegetarian).

Great food, great prices
Submitted Sunday, March 11, 2007 - 9:10pm [Dine in]

This little Indian restaurant is a favourite in the Fraser/49th area- tiny, and easy to pass by, but well worth stopping for. Every time I go to a potluck, I phone ahead and get a huge box of samosas, which are always a hit.
As a dining spot, the food is wonderful, even though the place is lacking in atmosphere (in fact, I usually have to ask them to turn off the overly-loud TVs playing Indian movies). Service is pretty good, although they've still to learn that cold plates make your food go cold really fast. The food, for the money, is OUTSTANDING - ask for the Butter Chicken to be medium spicy, and you have probably the best butter chicken in town. Great takeout prices/portions, too.

Ok but the portions are getting smaller!
Submitted Sunday, March 11, 2007 - 6:02pm [Dine in]

I've been here several times now - the first time, I though this restaurant was AMAZING. Food was incredible, service was good, and we both had food to take home! Not that I expect that, but... the next two times, the portions were considerably smaller. As in, they didn't even fill us up. Last time I went, the service was SO SLOW it was unbelievable, and my prawns were overcooked. So it seems this restaurant can be good, but isn't very consistent.
