Slocan Restaurant2715 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Just like the good old days
Submitted Sunday, June 25, 2006 - 7:27pm [Dine in]

I went to this restaurant as a choice on the way to a giants game. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a great little restaurant to go to with the family. I had the cheeseburger which was made to perfection just like the good old days. Nice toasted sesame bun with mayo and ample relish. Even though they were super busy we were served quickly by somebodys mother. She gave us menus which had a good selection from something plain to a good homecooked meal. Upon laying down our menus she popped right over to take our order and had our food within 10-15 minutes even though it was on their dinner rush. The food was good quality and you could tell was prepared with fresh ingredients. Really enjoyed it there, good place to go with your brats on a night after the PNE.

OPA! Of Greece412 Davie Street, Vancouver
Always something to fall back on

Want fast food that isn't McDonalds? Opa is the place to go. Something like a greek subway they take your order and make it right in front of you while you wait. The portions/price ratio is excellent and the extra tzatziki sauce is always a blessing. Pretty much good for whatever you are looking for. Veggie, Lamb, Chicken or the mysterious Gyro meat. They also have a selection of salads such as greek and ceasar and they also make great french fries which have a spicy seasoning to keep me coming back. The guys in there are always great, very fast and polite. Many a time I chose them over Steamrollers when I didn't have enough time to make dinner before the hockey game and wanted something great!

9th Avenue Grill1822 West Broadway St., Vancouver
Time after time
Submitted Sunday, June 25, 2006 - 7:08pm [Dine in]

After searching desperately when living in the kitsilano area for a breakfast place that didn't either absolutely suck or have 50 people lined up for over an hour I came upon the 9th ave grill. Thank you god! It is small and slowly becoming more and more poplular to my own dissapointment but if you get in early enough it is easy enough to get a seat right away. This place has never disappointed. I sit down, the waitress comes and i get a menu and a drink order. The drink order comes, they take my order. The girls are always polite and relaxed. I read the paper for 5-10 min depending on how busy they are and then an ample sized portion food comes which is tempting to the tastebuds. That is all that needs to be said. Time and time again it is always the perfect little diner to go to eat. A good way to start your day. No hassles, friendly service, no annoyances and you leave with a belly full of really well made food.

What can I say about this restaurant? For some reason I find myself continually going back here and I don't know why. Everytime I do I say that is the last time but then I find myself there again. Funny thing is I do the same at McDonalds. I could go on forever about my experience here. Some of the waitresses are so nice and pretty and oh hello yes I am good yay yah yah yah ha ha ha thank-you. Then you get one of the tall guys there not the short indian fellow who is just a complete mess. I can't even begin I would have to do it in point form. Stuff like your appys coming after your entrees. Dumping our food off on us and running off then ignoring us. Waiting 15 minutes for the cheque long after we are done eating and waving our hands in the air. Then having him take our visa and take off long enough to have gone on a shopping spree. More waving of the hands. Do not want to sit in a place pissed off for over half an hour after you should have left. Last time I went I got the chipolte chicken quesadilla. Instead of being slightly crispy and a healthy option. I got a mess within two wraps. Where is the chicken? This thing isn't even hot, it was some kind of a mess of filler beans and not even sure if they used cheese or what I was eating. When a restaurant puts something on a menu it should somewhat resemble what the rest of the world knows it to be. That is all the time I am wasting with them. And I feel bad because some of the girls are so nice.........maybe that is why I continue to go back to the overly glamourized mickey d's.

This is fish?
Submitted Sunday, June 25, 2006 - 6:11pm [Dine in]

Overall this place has a great feel to it. . I had just finished a couple hour walk and having skipped breakfast and seen the sign for all you can eat fish and chips I decided to giver. The waitress seemed really nice and friendly but may have done a little too much drugs the night before. Initially upon sitting down I said that I was going to go for the fish and chips and a beer. Good beer on tap might I add. Big plus there. Being one of only 4 customers there and waiting about 10 minutes for my beer, I then waited another 5 minutes to have her come back and ask if I decided on what I would like. Ummmmm? Fish and chips? remember? It was far too long of a wait for the food on a dead day for what is their daily special. When it came the fish was lackluster for sure. The chips were soggy and 3 days old and the fish had been soaking in canola since it was caught apparently. If you are looking for crispy look for the opposite here. It was as if they took hypodermic needles and spent fifteen minutes injecting it with the fat of Rodney Dangerfields dead and bloated body and then popped it in the microwave for half a minute. Then apparently I must have forgotten to take my cloak of invisiblity off because my friendly waitress forgot about me until I had to hunt her down to get something to wash the filth from my mouth. The only reason they have all you can eat is because nobody in their right mind without the intention of spending the night in the hospital would order another plate of this slop. Then upon paying they had no interact. I would have to go downstairs to the dungeon and pay an extra $3.00 to my bank to use the rip-off atm which of course didn't work because it was a piece of crap. So I had to walk up to Granville st. to get money out so that I could come back and pay my bill. After eating that crap I could barely make'r. My advice. This is a place to get pissed. If you have to eat I suggest you get really pissed before you order anything from here.

Thank god for good waiters

For some reason I really liked this place. I had heard alot about it and don't believe that it was that special. Upon entering I noticed that the menu which was scrawled on the wall above the kitchen was limited. Most of it consisted of stuff which I could cook at home. The male waiter however was very friendly and offered us a seat and a drink. I decided to sit on the bench which looked very comfy. After sitting though they seemed strange, especially after an hour because they had springs in them instead of foam. They had a good assortment of Vodkas there which were very tasty. Including a jalepeno infused one for my ceaser which it appears the waiter has to make himself. All in all he seems to really know what he is doing. If he is only the waiter there they should make him the manager. We ordered some homemade chips to start off. I don't know if the cooks have ever heard of paper towel? They were really greasy but some of them were good and all in all we ate them down. The menu seemed to be really lacking for me except for the meatloaf. Unfortunately I made meatloaf the night before so I went with the turkey club which was excellent. My girlfriend opted for the perogies. I thought they looked a little too bland and boiled for my taste and after tasting them decided I would rather drink the slop from boiled potoatoes. However my sandwich was excellent so I had to give them that. Some advice? Maybe take the time to toss your perogies in a frying pan after boiling them like your mother should have taught you with a little butter and onions and maybe some garlic to spice em up. I suggest they get rid of the mixed disk and buy an ipod. Although the strange mix of music was good after hearing the same song 7 times by the time I left I was a little tired of it. It is close to home so I will go back but maybe only for a ceasar and soup to chat it up with the waiter.

What is wrong with this place?
Submitted Sunday, June 25, 2006 - 5:37pm [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant several times and am constantly confused. Half the time the food is amazing the other half it is put together poorly and tastes like pig dung. There was one guy who used to work in the kitchen last year who made amazing food all the time but obviously hasn't been around because the past couple times I don't feel like going back. As for the bar you can always get good service from the bald guy. Very friendly and really knows what he is doing. The other taller guy who spikes his hair is the worst bartender and always has his head in the clouds. The waitresses there are very nice and the atmosphere is always excellent and friendly. Very Cheers like. I enjoy going back there to take the chance for that alone. My advice is to get to know the staff. If the good people aren't working maybe look somewhere down the street.
