Cinch Cafe1517 Robson Street, Vancouver
Great Jem on Robson
Submitted Sunday, October 3, 2010 - 10:27am [Dine in]

I was introduced to this place a few months back and I have to say that this is one of my mew favourite places to eat! The food is flavourful and great quality and the service is impeccable. I was impressed with the new menu as some of the specials from the previous months ( which are to die for!!) are now offered regularly. As a person who enjoys vegetarian food often, I was so very impressed with the selections available (you wont just find damn mushroom risotto here!!) The variety of foods is amazing. I would highly recommend anyone or any vegetarian to try this place!!

Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
Good little place to try
Submitted Saturday, November 14, 2009 - 5:27am [Dine in]

This is a good dessert place tucked in along Main st. Usually very busy and packed, which results in lineups and less than ideal seating arrangements involving tight spaces and folding chairs. Nevertheless, if you can tolerate that and the automatic 15% gratuity tagged at the end of the bill, this place delivers good quality tea (loose leaf compared to cheap bleach tasting paper tea bags). I had the Apple custard crumble and I was not disappointed. Apple and custard base had good taste and texture and not too sweet. Crumble top was just the right crunch and not loaded up with butter. Well done. Probably not a place that I will keep coming back, but good to give it a try as it has a great comfy nostalgic feel of Vancouver's past.

Chambar568 Beatty Street, Vancouver
One of the best places to try
Submitted Saturday, November 14, 2009 - 4:27am [Dine in]

This was my second time at Chambar but this time, a bunch of friends and I decided to come here for dessert. I have to say that this place delivered a solid plated dessert at a reasonable price. I tried the Bleu et blanc. The combination of flavours was very well done, especially the plum and mousse. I did, however, find that the proportion of plum to mousse was lacking. I found the mousse to be quite heavy (blue cheese/white chocolate) and it needed more of the plum element to balance it. I did sample a bit of the Le gateau poire from a friend. The texture of the cake/pear compote was wonderful. I did feel that the compote could have had a bit more pear flavour, as it finished with the taste of plain sugar in the mouth. This was also the same with the lemongrass ice cream. Could have been more lemongrass and less sweetness. Nevertheless, great quality food, over the top service and atmosphere, will definitely come back soon!

Highly disappointed
Submitted Wednesday, October 21, 2009 - 1:26am [Dine in]

I went here expecting great Thai food after reading many reviews, boy was I seriously disappointed. Pad Thai was gelatinous, clumpy and had no flavour. I could of made this at home by over boiling store bought noodles. Som Tom presentation I have to say was nice. Unfortunately, it didn't taste as great as it looked. Again, I felt that the dish lacked flavour, the scale of the beans were a bit thick and so was the papaya. But again, taste was probably compromised in favour for presentation. Salad with eggplant and mushrooms was a bit too oily and heavy for a salad, didn't leave me feeling so great after. Dessert, what can I say....nothing spectacular. Everything was a way too overpriced for the small and disappointing portions. Service was good though, but not enough to make me come back.

Thai Away Home3315 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Dont see what all the fuss is about
Submitted Wednesday, January 7, 2009 - 2:49am [Dine in]

I decided to try this place after I heard good reviews about it. I was a bit disappointed. I usually compare thai places based on their pad thai, and frankly, I really wasn't impressed with it here. I found it to be a bit oily, sloppy looking (inconsistency with the texture of the noodles) some were saturated with sauce, some chunks of noodles was still stuck together with no sauce. I found the sauce to be too reminiscent of ketchup with too much tamarind paste, which overpowered the dish. Also ordered a green curry chicken. Completely disappointed with this one. The curry tasted somewhat candy like, like a mixture of Glico curry mixed with watery tasteless coconut milk. Chicken was a bit dry. In my opinion, the best Thai place is Montri's Thai. The Pad Thai there is the best I've ever tried, flavours are amazing and the quality of all the dishes is superb.

Cactus Club Cafe4219B Lougheed Hwy, Burnaby
meh
Submitted Wednesday, January 7, 2009 - 2:35am [Dine in]

If you want consistency, cactus club is not the place to be. Ordered the "Rocket Salad" since it was suppose to be a Rob Fennie creation. I ordered the same dish at the Burrard St Cactus and had a pretty good experience with that. The chicken had a good crust of parmesan cheese and the arugula was plentiful. The entire dish was nicely plated and the flavours were a good combination and not overpowering. HOWEVER, when I ordered the same dish at Lougheed, I was truly disappointed. Not only was there no parmesan flavour on the chicken (reducing it to a piece of oily fried chicken), there was no arugula, only a handful of spinach and a few slices of red and yellow tomatoes. The lemon/caper on the bottom of the dish was fine, but the vinaigrette dressing tasted like vegetable oil. based on the sight of the ingredients, I could of thrown this concoction together from found items from costco. Talk about quality control....
