Don Don Noodle Cafe3369 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Another Cambie Street Casualty
Submitted Wednesday, June 6, 2007 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

We didnt' expect to end up at the Don Don Noodle Cafe, but after finding the Tomato Fresh Food Cafe and Om Vegetarian Restaurant closed, this was one of the few that was still open on Cambie street. Too bad it will be closing down soon.

The food was good. My partner and I shared Noodle Bowl and Tofu Shitake Curry dish. The food was tasty, although I wish it was a bit warmer and spicier.

I have to give full credit to the staff working there. The person taking our order (I think he was the owner judging by how people talked to him) was very helpful. Just before our meal arrived the power went out in the building, but he was able to get us our food, and the kitchen staff kept preparing meals using a flashlight and the gas stove.

Too bad this place is closing down, but I don't blame them. Cambie is hell to navigate on foot now and a pain to get to.

Budgies Burritos44 Kingsway, Vancouver
Strange but tasty
Submitted Thursday, May 17, 2007 - 8:12pm [Dine in]

This is the weirdest burrito shacks I've ever been in. The walls are covered in almost creepy pastel portraits and paintings. The ambiance leads itself to a weird combination of apprehension and amusement.

The burritos are all vegetarian. Some are almost traditional and others have very un-Mexican ingredients like Tofurkey. The prices are a bit steep for burritios, but are very reasonable when you see how incredibly huge the burrito you get is.

Sweet Cherubim Natural Foods & Restaurant1105 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
I love them samosas
Submitted Thursday, May 17, 2007 - 8:03pm [Dine in]

The food is the only thing that keeps me coming back to Sweet Cherubim. The service always sucks - it takes them forever to take your order and get your food. There aren't many tables to eat at, but on a nice day I'd recommend getting your food to go and eating in Grandview Park (just down the street) anyway.

The food, however, is outstanding. The samosas, my personal favourite, come in several flavours and can be baked or fried. The selection of vegetarian curies are all tasty and well-spiced. The deserts are also great. I'd definitely recommend trying some of the carob balls or other vegan desert bars.

Cafe Deux Soleils2096 Commercial Dr, Vancouver
Varies with the time
Submitted Thursday, May 17, 2007 - 7:53pm [Dine in]

The experience eating at Cafe Deux Soleis varies depending on the time of day. During breakfast and lunch, small children are often found playing on a stage with a toy kitchen. In the evenings, the toys disappear and are replaced with live bands and poetry slams (on Monday nights). In the evenings, they still serve some food, but the atmosphere is more like a bar, and cover is sometimes charged.

The food is all vegetarian - the breakfast menu is typical greasy spoon (with veggie meat substitutes) and the dinner menu is pub-like (nachos, burgers, pasta dishes, etc). Brunch is probably the tastiest meal served.

The service is mixed. You have to order at the counter and meals are brought out to you at your table, but sometimes it takes a while to get your food.

Afro Canadian Restaurant324 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Yummy Ethiopean Food
Submitted Thursday, May 17, 2007 - 6:54pm [Dine in]

The service was a bit slow at lunch, but the staff was super friendly. The food is usually served communally on Injera, so be prepared to eat with your hands from the same plate as everyone else. The food was tasty and there were plenty of vegetarian options on the menu.
