Butter chicken craving
Submitted Friday, January 8, 2016 - 2:36pm [Dine in]

I came to eat here yesterday to satisfy my girlfriend's butter chicken craving, and it did just that.

The place had an empty spot when we arrived (which is why I chose it to begin with) so we sat down immediately. We knew what we wanted: butter chicken for the lady, and some lamb for me. We also ordered some plain naan and rice.The food did not come out pretty quickly, and the restaurant was more than half full. I don't know whether I made a bad choice, but I must say that the butter chicken was immensely better than the lamb rogan josh I ordered. Still good enough to satisfy me for the next three hours in class though. It may not be the best Indian in town, but I'd probably say it was amongst the top in West End.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Saturday dinner meal
Submitted Monday, February 2, 2015 - 4:14pm [Dine in]

Took the girlfriend out here for dinner the other night. To set the scenario: Saturday night, it had been a long day at work and I decided I wanted to treat myself to a grand dinner. I didn’t want to cook, or drive too far so we decided upon Akbar’s. I called before to save us a spot so that we would not have to wait too much to get something in our stomachs. Luckily there was some space for us when we arrived.

Food was a little slow, I tend to be an impatient human being, so for me 15 minutes felt like a stretch. There was a aloo gobi, chicken methi, naan and rogan josh, and some cheese cake at the end which gave it a nice touch. What I liked was that there was some real complex flavours which tasted like what Indian food should taste like. There usually is a problem differentiating the spiced up and spicy food when it comes to Indian food and luckily we had no problem. I actually ended up taking some of the naan home.

Dinner came out to be $14 a dish which was up to par for the quality of food and atmosphere, so if you are not in the mood to splurge on other spots…

Aussie Pie GuyWest Georgia St & Hamilton St, Vancouver
Pie by hand? Yes!
Submitted Sunday, February 1, 2015 - 11:13pm [Take-out]

I'm not much of a pie person, especially when it comes to eating it by hand. I mean, a pie without a fork or a spoon, and from a food truck?? Go figure! This Australian food truck was all that I needed. Now, I've never been to Australia but this pie is sure good. Discovered it a while back and now it's my staple sweet indulgence every week or so. $8 might be a bit much for the pie, but on the flip side, if you consider all the qualities it has (healthy, well-made with fresh and organic ingredients), it's alright. Lots of ingredients to choose from, but my personal favourite is shane's pie.

La Terrazza1088 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Looks are not everything: beautiful ambience but lacking in taste
Submitted Friday, January 30, 2015 - 11:56pm [Dine in]

Tried it out first in dine out two years ago and loved it. This is one of Vancouver's high-end Italian restaurants. The ambience is to die for, great architecture and very Italian. I must admit it makes for a great romantic dinner setting, or some other type of celebration.

We made a reservation here last week. It was a bit packed when we arrived so we waited at the bar. In what seemed like 20 minutes, we were directed to a room with our table. This is one of those places in where you want to have a good meal but don't. We had the caesar and calamari, followed by the spaghettini and scaloppini. I found the food to be a little lacking, and felt like I didn't get my money's worth. And the fact that the wine list is nothing cheap didn't help.

Second time's the charm?
Submitted Friday, January 30, 2015 - 11:31pm [Dine in]

We came here on a Wednesday for dinner and boy did we regret it. I should have listened to my inner self and not come (we had a previous negative experience eating here). But I thought things would have changed from the last time I was here over a year ago. Also, the fact that my party and I were not coming for the all-you-can-eat, made me cave in and pay the price. Sadly. Sigh...

The service was terrible. First of all, we were not acknowledged for over 10 minutes at the door. And when we were seated, another 15 to 20. Add to that the time it took to bring out the actual food and do the math. Do these people seriously not want business? Cause that's what they're doing. I used to remember the meat being good, but this time was not the case. Dry cold and hard - nothing like when you think of Korean bbq. The portions are small and totally not worth the $$ (not cheap, btw).

I seriously don't know why I returned.

Felico's Restaurant8140 Leslie Road, Richmond
Always a good dinner experience
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 9:27pm [Dine in]

Eating at Felico's is like going back to visit an old friend after many years. The ambience is friendly, warm and the food is served in healthy, large portions that are good enough to fill larger appetites like mine.

I have been coming here for years, ever since I was little with my family. Prices have kept themselves fairly on the high end but I have no complaint in that sense because I think the prices are justified. But then again, I don't come here very often - I like to reserve it for special occasions. Just so you know, plates on average are between the ranges of $16 - 20. Some items on the menu, like the steak or grilled are more expensive though.

My personal favourites are the rack of lamb chops and the chicken linguine. The lamb pie is also a solid choice.

Ali Baba Pizza775 Fort St, Victoria
Not very good value for the money
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 9:13pm [Take-out]

On our most recent trip to Victoria, we ordered pizza from this place. Yeah, I know, not very adventurous of us, but we were hungry and pizza seemed like a fitting choice at that moment. It is considered one of the best in the city, so I thought it was a safe choice.

I dont know if they were having an off day or something, but I was completely let down by the pizza here. We ordered a Teriyaki Steak Pizza and a Carribean and both tasted bland. The carribean tasted a little overcooked. It is rare that I leave a pizza unfinished and this was the case for this one.

Irish Times Pub1200 Government Street, Victoria
Expensive, but worth it?
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 9:03pm [Dine in]

I am having trouble classifying my last experience at the Irish. When I was in Victoria, I headed down to the bar with a group of friends who were also from out of town. It was a safe for us, as the food as we remembered it was consistently good and the service as well, not to mention the ambience and live music 24/7.

This time around, it was just 'meh'. I knew this place played primarily Irish music so there were no surprises there. I don't know if my standards have been spoiled or raised, but I found the prices to be a little overpriced. The chicken wings were a little cold and my pulled pork sandwich was a bit of a downer. The drinks made up for it. There's nothing like a good old Irish beer to get here. Murphys, Guiness, all that good stuff. There are also local BC drinks served here.

Rebar50 Bastion Square, Victoria
Great for even a non-vegan
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

My visit to Rebar was great; it was one of those visits where you don't know whether you should thank yourself for not looking up the menu. We stumbled upon this place after doing some shopping downtown.

My surprise came from the fact that it was a healthy, vegan place. The not-so-health-conscious and meat-loving person in me was kind of taken aback, but since we were kind of hungry, we decided to stay and give it a try.

I honestly did not think I was going to come out of this place feeling full or satisfied, but boy was I wrong. The poutine was good but the yam and pepita quesadilla surprised. For mains, we settled for some huevos rancheros and burgers. I opted for the swiss and mushroom almond burger while my girl chose the classic. I liked everything surprisingly.

Pagliacci's1011 Broad St, Victoria
Great ambience
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 1:48am [Dine in]

I am definitely the kind of person that likes a place more for the food that the setting it is in, but Pagliacci's is an exception. Whilst being a tourist in Victoria, I took out my girlfriend here for a fine dining. I had read about this place before but never really cared to go. Another reason why I probably didn't head here is because the place is kind of difficult to spot. Maybe it is done purposely, as the lineups can be huge.

The decor, lighting & music (live music in case you are wondering) all contributed to making it a fine meal. Sure, it was a little crampted inside, as well as difficult to hold a proper conversation over the amount of noise provided by the music and closeness of overs, but by the time we got a table we were so famished that all we wanted was to get our hands on some food.

The food was as good as it gets. For starters, we had some crab cakes which came with some focaccia bread. Delicious. I didn't try the salads but my girlfriends' half prince of tides salad (I believe that was the name) was good. The items on the menu all had funny names, I opted for the "I'll have what she's having" blindly and ended up liking it. You get all sorts of seafoods such as crab legs, mussels, scallop and clams. Prices are not cheap but justified.

Verdict: Will come again.

Azuma Sushi615 Yates St, Victoria
Still not good
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 1:25am [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I were visitors here, her first but not mine. Now I don't know if Vancouver has spoilt me or something, but the food was pretty terrible. If there is one word that would describe my experience eating here at Azuma, it would be "yuck".

Why come again, you ask? Because I thought the quality had improved, and that my last experience eating here, which was over a year ago, mind you, was an isolated incident. But looking at the reviews here, apparently it is not.

The place is newly renovated and so getting a table is not a problem, as the restaurant is huge now. But looks are seriously deceiving. The sushi was pretty terrible. Lukewarm, greasy and not fresh tasting at all. Nothing you would expect to eat at a restaurant, more like in a fast food place or mall. The fried rice was sticky and absolutely cold. Not happy at all in this aspect.

The only thing that I can appreciate, but cannot say was a saving grace either was the service. The waiter we got was nice, and despite having a mix up with our food, apologized and tried to bring our food quickly. At least quicker than the rest. She did seem a little flustered by that though.

I've seen other sushi places around here so I'm hoping they have better sushi than this.
