Red Burrito606 Robson Street, Vancouver
Solid
Submitted Wednesday, March 31, 2010 - 2:21pm [Dine in]

The burritos are large and very filling. If walking out with a full stomach for $7 is your idea of a good lunch then this is it. Flavours are good and you have a choice of different flour tortillas with you beef/chicken burrito.

While the tacos are really good, I find that three tacos cost as much as a burrito. Coming from California this just doesn't seem right. It should be cheaper. Having said that, I still buy them occasionally as I do enjoy them. It's hard to beat good corn tortillas on fresh ingredients.

The best deal is the Tortilla soup. Filling all by itself and only $2.99. Have the add a bunch of fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime and you are in Tortilla soup heaven. This is the best dish on the menu and possibly the cheapest one.

Except for the tortilla soup, I would say that the Red Burrito is just a bit overpriced. A Robson street location probably comes with a Robson street rent so I guess I can't really blame them. Food is really good and as most food in this city it seems they all cost around the same price regardless of the ingredients. If you like California Tex-mex type food, then you need to try it.

Khai Thai Cuisine2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Port Coquitlam
Good food and a decent price
Submitted Wednesday, March 31, 2010 - 2:11pm [Dine in]

It's not often that I buy food for lunch and feel like I got my money's worth. Often it seems that restaurants price their lunches to fit in the $6 - $12 frame just because that is what lunch should cost. The food quality and quantity may match it but often not.

I called Khai after looking at their website (http://www.khaithai.com/) and reviewing their menu. This is a huge thing for me as I use the intertubes for nearly everything.

I ordered the Panang Curry and was told it would be 5 minutes. First thought was... they have it ready and it's not made to order. Not a positive sign but I followed through and walked down to pick it up.

The Lunch combo consisted of Iceberg lettuce salad w/ a thousand island like dressing, standard issue spring roll, generous portion of rice and a container of the Panang Curry.

Lettuce was cold and crisp. I haven't had iceberg lettuce in a long time but I'm not complaining. It was good for a change

Spring roll was warm by the time I got back to my office but still crisp. The sweet sauce could have been spicier so I added my own chili oil that I have stashed for this purpose.

Panang Curry was good. Definitely taste the Thai Basil and the hint of lime leaves. It was a good -> outstanding curry in that the flavours were distinct. The chicken was all breast meat. I would have preferred thigh meat but I understand that most like the white breast meat over the darker more flavourful variety. Personal preference would have been if the curry was a bit spicier but I'm sure it was plenty for most.

Overall, I would definitely eat here again. The cashier/hostess was friendly and polite when I entered to pick up my take-away and the atmosphere in the restaurant seemed agreeable. I may have to try eating in next time.

$10.45 tax incl for a very filling and satisfying meal. A good value
