Minoas Greek Taverna3823 Kingsway, Burnaby
Delicious Greek Food
Submitted Thursday, June 23, 2011 - 1:12pm [Dine in]

I come here all the time, whenever I'm craving greek food, and am always satisfied. The portions aren't too big, and the price is very reasonable. My favourite things to get are the kalimari and the shrimp souvlaki. The food is always fresh and delicious. When I compare it to other Greek restaurants I have been to, I realize how good this place really is. I especially love the house the restaurant is in. It makes me feel cozy.
All around, this place is great. This place has a good balance between quality and quantity, unlike some Greek restaurants which give you a lot of food, that isn't any good. I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great Greek food.

Take Sushi4528 Hastings Street, Burnaby
There are plenty of better places on the same street
Submitted Saturday, February 26, 2011 - 6:16pm [Take-out]

I love sashimi, it's my favorite thing, especially salmon, but when I ordered it here, it was pretty disappointing. Well for on thing, it was rather metallic, and rubbery. I understand that they could have had a bad day for fish, but it doesn't excuse their rolls. These were too sweet. And the Alaska roll, well you couldn't call it an Alaska roll. Sure, when you own your own restaurant you can change certain recipes, but if you gonna take an Alaska roll, and replace the smoke salmon with sashimi, don't call it an Alaska roll. Maybe they had misheard my order, however, that doesn't change the fact that when I went to eat here, I was dissapointed. I'm not telling you to stay away from this place, if you like it, then find, eat there, but I'm just telling you, you can probably fined better places on the same street.

Don't Go Out of Your Way For
Submitted Saturday, February 26, 2011 - 6:09pm [Take-out]

This little sushi joint was actually, surprisingly good. I was walking around and went there because, I love sushi, and thought I would give it a try. I was pretty small, and crowded, so I decided to get take out, and just eat my lunch at a near by park. I must say, even though it was cold, this was a delightful luncheon.
The lady who served me was good, but not outstanding, and the value was very good. The sashimi was pretty good, but nothing special, and same with the rolls. I only had the Alaska roll, and though not as good as my usual place, it was solid. The only thing I was disappointed in by my roll, was that the smoked salmons flavor was lost.
As I said in my title, it was good, but if you live far away, don't go out of your way for it. It was pretty good, but it wasn't anything special or outstanding. If your near by, or are passing by it, great, go in and have a bite, but to go from the opposite side of the city wouldn't be worth it.

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Mr. Bishop, the Nervous Chef
Submitted Tuesday, July 20, 2010 - 8:59pm [Dine in]

Food - the food was delicious. For appetizer, I had dungeness crab. The crab was made into a sort of paste, one that would go perfect with crackers. It was delicious. It was smooth, and creamy, and well seasoned. For the main course, I had the Qualicum Bay scallops. They were placed on top of very creamy mashed potatoes. I suspect they were the most creamy mashed potatoes I have ever had. On the side, were to different sauces. Unfortunately, I am not sure what they were. The scallops themselves were very meaty, but a tad bland. The sauces made up for this though. Overall this dish was delicious.
For desert, I had a bread pudding. Seeing how it was Christmas time when I dined at Bishops, the pudding was quite appropriate. It was warm, and a bit gewy. It was not too sweet, and not too un-sweet (if that makes any sense).
Wether or not the service or ambiance of a restaurant is good, as long as they have good food, they can count me in as a customer.

Service - Incredible service. My father, who's birthday we were celebrating, sneezed during dinner. Immediately, a plate with a small box of clean-ex on it, appeared beside him immediately. It was one of the waitresses who had brought it. This had never happened to us before, so we were slightly confused. When it finally registered in our brains, we were amazed at the service.
Before desert, Mr. Bishop himself brought out a plate of pair slices stacked in a spiral. Delicious as it was, Mr. Bishop seemed quite nervous. He was slightly shaking too. Unless, my parents are part of a Russian gang that possesses nuclear weapons, I don't think Mr. Bishop had anything to be worried about.

Value and Ambiance - Solid

Le Crocodile909 Burrard Street, #100, Vancouver
Le Crocodile, Le Delicious Food
Submitted Tuesday, July 20, 2010 - 10:59am [Dine in]

A while ago I went to Le Crocodile with my family. When we came in, it was quite busy so we were put into a corner. Although some people may not like this, I love corners of restaurants as they are very cozy. For dinner I had the duck breast with froie gras. It was exquisite. The froie gras was creamy and the duck breast was tender but not to chewy. As almost all French food, wine was incorporated into the dish as a sauce; a delicious one I might add.
The duck came with a bit of steamed vegetables on a separate plate. Unfortunately, though the duck and froie gras were outstanding, the vegetables were forgettable. However, it is hard to find a restaurant who can make steamed vegetable unforgettable, yet it has been done, and therefore, the food for Le Crocodile, dose not get a 5 out of 5.
I had a taste of my families dishes, and they were very delicious. The beurre blanc was creamy and smooth, with a bit of a tang, which comes from what I suspect is white wine vinegar. Finally, the risotto was one of the best risottos I've ever tasted.
For desert I had a chocolate crepe. The main course was amazing but the desert was lacking. Although the chocolate crepe was delicious, it was nothing out of the ordinary.
Despite what I have said above, the food was delicious in all aspects. Though I did criticize the vegetables, and desert, it does not mean that they are not delicious, it is just that they are not incredible, like some of there other food.
Le Crocodile is a great place for French food, and a great place for food lovers. Gourmands everywhere (even if French food is not there favourite) will be able to appreciate the food at Le Crocodile.
Bon Appetite!

Japa DogCorner of Burrard and Smithe, Vancouver
really good but some people might not like it
Submitted Monday, August 10, 2009 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

the hot dogs of japa dog are my favorite hot dogs ever. they taste like sushi which is my favorite type of food (my favorite sushi restaurants are toshi's and toyotami's). the hot dogs there are really good but some people may not like them. if you dont like japanese food then i wouldn't recommend these but if you do, these hot dogs are great. the only thing i have to say about them is that sometimes there is to much mayonnaise which to me ruins the hot dog.

the service is so-so but the servers are busy making hot dogs to.

the value is good...its not super cheap and its not super expensive, its just good.

i dont really like the ambiance rating but its not the japa dogs staff's fault because they are situated outside. while your waiting you have to listen to cars screech buy, people are honking at each other and sometimes the benches are wet but i here they are getting an indoor restaurant which will solve these problems.

lobster summer
Submitted Sunday, August 17, 2008 - 11:22am [Dine in]

i went to the keg during their lobster summer and the lobster was delicious! i had half a lobster with honey BBQ ribs and fries. there ribs are always good and the lobster was delicious and meaty. the service was very good. the ambiance was nice even though it was a bit dark and hard to read the menu. while you wait you can go to the lounge and have a drink or some appetizers. when you get into the restaurant they give you this circle thing that lights up when your table is ready. it's not a really fancy place but they do serve good food. whenever i go to the keg i enjoy myself. the food may not be incredible but it is pretty good.

i love the burgers
Submitted Sunday, August 17, 2008 - 11:10am [Dine in]

i go to white spot every once and a while and i always order the BC burger or legendary burger. the other food at white spot is okay. i really love there burgers but sometimes the meat can be a little dry. white spot is a good casual place to go to. if you are looking for a good burger but you don't want to go to some fast food restaurant or some fancy restaurant, go to white spot. if you go there i recommend the BC burger or the legendary burger.

good for what it is
Submitted Friday, June 6, 2008 - 9:04pm [Dine in]

it is good for what it is. if you like diner food you should come here but if you like gourmet restaurants then dont come here, unless you want easy breakfast and lunches. they have good fries! way better than mcdonalds, well almost every restaurant is. the service is decent, they are competent and are nice. they give free mints and not with the bill so you can sneak a bunch. this is a decent restaurant.

ok...
Submitted Friday, June 6, 2008 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

it is ok if you are looking for something greasy. people i know like it but they think night and day is a big night out. the quality of the food is not so great. service is ok but once it was as slow as can be. Ambiance was like any other road side cafe. to be fair i only ate the breakfast but i cant see dinner being that much greater.
