Mitra Canteen3034 Main Street, Vancouver
best shawarma in town!
Submitted Sunday, February 27, 2011 - 1:21am [Dine in]

this is hands down my favourite shawarma place!!!!!!!

i usually get the chicken shawarma plate, and it is always consistently tasty! the chicken is juicy and tender, the rice pilaf is awesome, the houmous is smooth and thick, and the tabbouleh has just the right amount of everything.

the service is excellent here! one time, when my friend ordered a chicken shawarma salad and had a bit left, she asked for it to be packed, and then they hooked her up with extra chicken! how awesome is that?!!

incredible value for amazing food!

best place ever!!!

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
delicious as always!
Submitted Sunday, February 27, 2011 - 1:07am [Dine in]

we came in for a late night dinner this evening and we were greeted and seated quite promptly (as there was no line at 10pm).

water and menus were delivered to the table shortly after and when we were ready to order, our waitress was back within minutes.

the chicken souvlakia was tender and the lamb souvlakia was cooked perfectly =) the rice pilaf, potatoes, tzatziki and bread were all very delicious =)

my only minor complaint is that the greek salad wasn't at it's best today (as we found the tomatoes a bit squishy and overall it was a bit warm).

other than that, this place has excellent value for its portions of delicious greek food!

Twisted Fork Bistro1147 Granville Street, Vancouver
granville street gem
Submitted Saturday, January 10, 2009 - 8:36pm [Dine in]

we've been to this place three times so far, and each of our experiences have been great! we've been there twice for brunch and it's definitely worth the trip downtown. as well, their prices are very reasonable for the high quality of food you get there.

for my first brunch, i had the scrambled eggs with asparagus. they were absolutely amazing. i have never tasted scrambled eggs like that before! truly heavenly.

for our second brunch, we had the eggs benedict and the banana stuffed brioche french toast. i'm usually not a big fan of eggs benny as i often find the hollandaise sauce too rich for me, but the consistency of their hollandaise sauce here was perfect. i had the chorizo with my eggs benny and it had just the right kick of spice. also, the banana stuffed brioche was delicious! it came with whipped cream, some fresh strawberries and apple slices on the side and a shot glass of syrup (which you may not even get to using), as the whipped cream is plenty =)

they also do a very nice dinner there. i had the lamb shank which came with grilled watermelon. i know that grilled watermelon sounds weird, but let me tell you, those people know what they're doing. we also had the twisted fork platter for our appetizer and we thought it had a good variety of food we wouldn't normally order.

the service is great and the staff is very personal. i really enjoy the little details of the twisted forks on their clipboard menus and how they make their own bread. as well, bottles of wine on mondays are half price =) i must say that twisted fork is now one of my favourite restaurants in the city.

La Brasserie1091 Davie Street, Vancouver
our first time, but not our last
Submitted Saturday, January 10, 2009 - 7:48pm [Dine in]

as we are regular gastro-explorers around town, we were delighted to find this davie street gem! the place was quite full when we got inside, but we didn't have to wait too long. we were seated at the bar, facing the cooks and we'd say...those were the best seats in the house. it was awesome to watch them prepare the dishes and all of the cooks were very friendly with us throughout the night.

our waitress recommended the onion tart to us for our appetizer and i must say it was amazing. for our mains, we had the fish of the day and the suckling pig. both dishes were beyond delicious! for our dessert, both the waitress and one of the cooks had recommended the carrot cake. we were very full that night and only had half of it, but the carrot cake was very original and unlike any kind of carrot cake i've had before =)

overall, the value was great! you definitely get more than what you pay for.

Ferris' Oyster Bar & Grill536 Yates St., Victoria
a hidden gem
Submitted Saturday, January 3, 2009 - 2:18pm [Dine in]

We were in Victoria for our vacation and this restaurant had been recommended to us by our B&B host. She said that Ferris' had an upstairs and downstairs but she had only been to the downstairs grill.

When we arrived on the block where Ferris' was situated, it was not easy to find, as there weren't any big signs for the restaurant and there was scaffolding around the building, making it look more like a construction site than a restaurant. We were hoping to check out the downstairs grill, however, there was a long line ahead of us and we were in a bit of a rush. So, we decided to check out the upstairs part of the restaurant...and wow, are we glad that we did!

The upstairs had a nice ambiance with their brick walls, candle lit tables, and the soundtrack to Amelie playing in the background. It was exactly the kind of place we were looking for. The menu had a great variety of plates which made it a little hard to choose from, as there was so much we wanted to try.

Not being huge fans of oysters, we tried 2 baked oysters for our appetizer. They were incredibly delicious! We ordered two different kinds, and both were filled with such a perfect mixture of flavours! If the oysters had come sooner (before we ordered our main courses), we would have had oysters for our mains!

For our main courses, we had the baked halibut with procsuitto and the boneless ribs with truffled mashed potatoes. They were both delicious dishes, but we must say that the boneless ribs were mind-blowing!

For dessert, we shared a warm chocolate brownie which was very yummy. We were a little disappointed that they didn't have ice cream to serve with it, but the whip cream was nice. The brownie wasn't overly sweet, it was a little crunchy on the edges, then warm and soft in the middle =)

This place will gave us incredible value for a complete meal with drinks, appetizers, mains, and dessert. Overall, we were completely impressed with Ferris' and we look forward to going back there for another meal when we are in town.

Kirin Seafood Restaurant7900 Westminster Highway, #200, Richmond
good food, but...
Submitted Saturday, January 3, 2009 - 1:53pm [Dine in]

My family and I are frequent customers of the Kirin restaurants around town. We enjoy the food there and usually, the service is very good. However, we had recently been to Kirin for a family dinner and experienced very poor service. We had ordered a cold platter to start with at the beginning of the meal. When the waiter took our order, he suggested that we make that a half order since we only had 6 people. In the description of the cold platter, there was a variety of cold appetizers but the one we were looking forward to was the free range chicken.

When the cold platter arrived, they had everything on the plate except for the chicken. We were confused as to why that was missing, so we asked our waiter. He told us that since we were ordering the half order, they didn't put the chicken on. We were quite upset at this point, as we found the chicken to be the selling point of the dish and our waiter had not mentioned that the chicken would not be a part of a half order. If he had told us ahead of time, we would not have even ordered the cold platter.

Also, the other thing about our restaurant experience was that they rushed all of our plates to come out quite quickly. We understood that we were there on a particularly busy night, however, we wanted to enjoy our meal rather than being rushed out of there in order for them to serve the second sitting of guests. We had even asked our waiter twice to hold the next plate of food that was to be served, but 2 minutes later, it arrived at our table.

When we spoke to the manager at the end of the meal, he was very defensive about the missing chicken for the cold platter and the fact that we were being rushed. His response to us for being rushed was that we shouldn't have come to dinner on such a busy night!

We were shocked at the poor service from this restaurant. Not only because we had been there many times before, but because they were completely unprofessional about the situation. Their food may be good, but their service was lacking.
