Cafe Medina780 Richards St, Vancouver
I heart Cafe Medina!!

The place is breathtaking - you feel like you are in beautiful new york brunch spot or taken away to streets of paris. Nice high ceilings, brick walls and modern parisian like decor - you are tempted to drink their white chocolate pistachio lattes while reading your latest book for hours.

The brunch is definitely unique and more on the "fine dining" end of brunch. The prices are decent though and only a couple of dollars more than your usual eggs benedict. The waffles - to die for, try it with the berry compote.

I love this place and take visitors here always for brunch. The service is excellent - Robbie Kane is the one who runs the place and you can see the love and care he puts into the service, operations, ambience and food.

Thumbs up. Go there this weekend.

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
One of my favourites!
Submitted Wednesday, September 17, 2008 - 12:19am [Dine in]

I love the dishes here - they are so unique and a true delight to my taste buds. Some of my favourite dishes: the deep fried pumpkin ball. I know it sounds a little strange...but it is a sensation to the taste buds...next...I enjoy the pork with white steamed bun (very popular dish in shanghai cuisine). And of course the salmon sashimi/tataki with garlic chips sprinkled on top and ponzu sauce.

About $35 for two people and you leave full, satisfied and looking forward to the next time you go back. It's always packed though...so getting a table is not easy.

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co.1876 West 1st Avenue, Vancouver
Good pizza no service
Submitted Tuesday, June 17, 2008 - 10:07pm [Dine in]

I have been to Rocky Mountain for their flatbread spicy pepperoni pizza a handful of times and unfortunately, each time the service is non existent. Perhaps because I go at lunch and they are understaffed, but it has been a consistent frustrating experience having to get up to get the waitress and get up each time I need something.

The food is good. I really enjoy their flatbread pizza. The sauce on the pepperoni pizza is spicy and a little sweet. The size is decent, you get a personal sized pizza (which I usually have at least one slice left). The price is decent, $10 for a personal sized pizza.

I emailed the owners about the service issue as it would be unfortunate to miss out on the pizza due to the lack of service. They responded via email immediately. We'll see if they took the feedback seriously the next time I visit.

Temaki Sushi2156 W. Broadway, #2, Vancouver
Good fresh sushi
Submitted Tuesday, June 17, 2008 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

Just moved in the Kits neighborhood and Temaki is definitely one of my regular dinner spots. The fish is fresh and sliced well, the gyoza is made in house (not the frozen kind like many restaurants) and the tempura is crisp. The prices are decent - they give pretty good portions for what you pay.

Atmosphere - relative to many other japanese restaurants in the city, Temaki scores pretty well. The bamboo-esque tables are a nice touch. The bathroom is clean. Open space and there is a lot of light when it's sunny out which I enjoy.

Parking is a bit annoying - there is no parking lot and you have to find street parking which is not always easy.
