Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
The reason for the line-up: Good food and value.
Submitted Tuesday, October 24, 2006 - 4:05am [Dine in]

The avgolemono soup with fresh squeezed lemon is fabulous. The roast lamb platter and souvlakia are tasty. Don't come expecting fine greek cuisine. This is assembly line food by the numbers. But the quality and consistency better the cost and the masses keep coming back in droves.

The only gripe I have besides potentially waiting forever in line is there's no draft beer served, only bottles.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1465 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Good authentic soul food, but not a great bargain.
Submitted Tuesday, October 24, 2006 - 3:16am [Dine in]

The BBQ is delicious and as 'southern' as one can get in Vancouver, I guess. However, the prices here seem nearly premium compared with the establishments in the real south, known for their good, cheap BBQ, with all the fixins. It just feels that at this place, too much of the price is for the 'House of Blues' like atmosphere. The tunes are rockin here, though. No doubt.

For no-nonsense deep south cooking, I found this place just across the border, in Blaine, right off the Pacific Hwy, in the mid-town shopping plaza. I don't remember the name, but they serve up deliciously honest soul food at it's finest!

Accents Restaurant1967 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Hot, fresh, and hearty, with generous portions
Submitted Tuesday, October 24, 2006 - 2:44am [Dine in]

This hidden-away place has great tasting, mainly eastern european dishes that are a good value with the unexpected generous sized portions. A pleasant surprise, since I'm losing patience with the stingy overpriced 'creations' that I encounter all-too-often on my plate. (If I want to be high-tea'd every day, I'll move to Victoria, okay!)

The russian Borsch is particularly satisfying, as well as the Tomato Camambert salad.

The service can be hit or miss and the menu rules for matching up how an entertainment coupon applies to what you just ordered is like learning how to play chess.

However, I think the great food makes this a place not to miss.

La Salsa Mexican Deli4140 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Fresh, tasty, and an excellent value!
Submitted Tuesday, October 24, 2006 - 2:06am [Dine in]

This must be the most underrated little Mexican cafe in North Burnaby. Every time I've eaten here, the food has tasted fresh and homemade. The enchiladas and tacos are excellent and they don't skimp on the cilantro.

The service and dining area is pretty plain, but I think the food really shines here. The prices really could not be any lower, I believe.

India Gate616 Robson St, Vancouver
The food was uninspiring.
Submitted Tuesday, October 24, 2006 - 1:46am [Dine in]

I cook indian food at home, and I can tell the difference between a meal prepared from fresh ingredients and one that largely comes from a jar. At this place, I tasted a lot of the jar in the main dishes. Plus, too much salt and butter for me in all 3 main dishes that my wife and I shared. The naan bread was even a little doughy in the center. (first time I've seen that!).

The servers were very presentable and hospitable, but somewhat uncommunicative.

In short, cheap food for unjustified prices. Personally, I could have done without the great service for the same quality food at a cheap takeout, for probably about 1/3 the cost.
