Avalon Deli7985 N Fraser Way, Burnaby
great addition to Avalon name
Submitted Wednesday, March 31, 2010 - 8:54am [Dine in]

This is a quaint family run deli/restaurant/Avalon product store. It is connected to the new Avalon factory which produces more than just milk in a glass jar.

There is a deli counter for fresh sandwiches, soup and salad. There is a counter overflowing with pre-wrapped treats and snacks for those who need to grab something quick.

There are a few coolers on the side filled with organic, locally-made Avalon products. You can get a variety of milk products in a glass or plastic container. They also have cheese, yogurt and some speciality items. Something new for the summer is the ice cream in a freezer beside the counter. You can purchase it by the cone, cup or container (if available).

The decor is dairy farm with plush cows for sale. There is parking out front. It's difficult to get to via transit but the area is being built up so that may change in the future.

Great place to visit if you like their products and/or organic local stuff.

Bubblemania1610 Robson Street, #102, Vancouver
where located
Submitted Wednesday, September 10, 2008 - 2:23pm [Dine in]

I checked out the robson location but did not find the store. I checked out the davie location but it's been turned into a jugo juice.

I didn't even get to use my 2008 entertainment coupon. Maybe that's why they are not in the 2009 book because they have left the area.

I vaguely remember seeing a Bubblemania somewhere as a stand along store possibly in the Yaletown area. I hope there is one somewhere within downtown so I can use my coupon before November 1.

East No 1 Seafood Restaurant2800 E 1st Avenue, Suite 302, Vancouver
busy place with carts for dim sum
Submitted Sunday, March 30, 2008 - 8:36am [Dine in]

This is somewhere my husband and I go to whenever we need a quick dim sum meal. We usually go on Sunday morning like most people for dim sum. It is always packed.

The items are reasonably priced. Special dishes can be requested even if you want to order from the dim sum carts circulating.

Parking is horrible as it is tight and underground and is always full since it is shared with other businesses in the complex like T&T supermarket and other Asian oriented stores. Street parking is available but scarce.

If you like to people watch then this is the place because it is packed. You may feel pushed to leave if you stay too long after you pay your bill though. If you're not eating and there is a line up then they may ask you if there was something specific you wanted to eat.

The variety is great and always expanding. If you don't see something then ask someone when you can. They are very busy and many wait staff do not have English as a second language let alone a first.

I have never seen anyone sit down and have a bad time.

Come Along Seafood Restaurant2550 Kingsway, Vancouver
nice to try but wouldn't go back
Submitted Sunday, March 30, 2008 - 8:31am [Dine in]

A new dim sum place on Kingsway will always draw a crowd. This is more upscale than my husband and I prefer but we like to try new restaurants. It was a quiet Sunday morning so we were served right away. It was packed by the time we left.

The dim sum is nice but you order off a card so it was a bit slow. They have two menus. One with the dim sum of the day and another on the table with items that may not be available. Unfortunately the item my husband always has was not available that day so it clouded our meal.

The portions are nice for the price especially when you consider the decor and high end look. There was regular tea and a hot water pot. There was saucers for your tea cup and real table cloths not multiple plastic sheets for easy clean up.

The street parking is okay depending on the time of day you go. There is parking in the back and you don't have to walk through a kitchen to get to the restaurant.

It was nice to try but we wouldn't go back as we prefer carts and certain items that were not on the regular menu.

Cannery Seafood House, The2205 Commissioner Street, Vancouver
Use a coupon or a deal
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 11:56am [Dine in]

This place is expensive but worth it if you have a deal when going in.

They are usually part of the Dine Out Vancouver. They have a coupon in the Entertainment book. During the month of December they sell gift certificates at 25% off but they can only be used from Jan-Mar the next year and not on Feb 14. They also have a e-newsletter with coupons in it sometimes.

The view is beautiful. They have fireworks in December with the carol ships (it's announced in their newsletter and website). The wait staff and coat check are great. The restaurant decor is something to behold if you like stuff all over the walls.

If you don't mind being cramped then upstairs is okay. If you like room to move then request a table downstairs. If it's your birthday and you don't mind some fuss, let them know and you'll get a large helium balloon, free cupcake type dessert and the menu fresh sheet will have a special greeting.

The extra security around the port entrance is awkward if you haven't been so don't wander when you get in there.

Trees Organic Coffee450 Granville St., Vancouver
Deals galore
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 11:34am [Dine in]

This place is great for a snack and ethical coffee.

It's easy to try this place out since they have a coupon in the Entertainment book which will get you a really nice lunch or snack for $5 or under. They are also part of the Shop Granville initative so get yourself signed up so you can get a free latte when you purchase one of their decadent cheesecakes. For those who really enjoy the products they have frequent buyers cards so you can at least get something once you have purchase many coffees and/or cheesecakes.

Stop buy even if just to check out how the Canada Line is doing.

Jade Dynasty Restaurant137 E Pender Street, Vancouver
Small place with big taste
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 11:27am [Dine in]

I've been there twice and both times were great for a place with dim sum via a tick off card. The service was not so good as my table was mainly Caucasian so they may not have cared as much as if we were mainly Chinese.

The food came quickly and hot. It was packed as the restaurant is small and rectangular (as are many places in Chinatown). The only table was next to the door which was not covered so we had a draft of chilly air everytime it was open.

The billboard outside the restaurant states they have a vegetarian tick off menu but we didn't try that. They take cash, credit and debit. They are open regular lunch and dinner hours.

Higher end Dim Sum with carts
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 10:50am [Dine in]

There is a long wait and it may not be worth it. It is mainly Chinese so you know it's good. The prices are reasonable for the higher end food and decor.

TVs in the corners to keep kids occupied. Large foyer area to keep out of the cold. Small parking area and little street parking.

The restaurant is hidden in a strip-mall but it's hopping for Dim Sum.
