Decent but not amazing
Submitted Wednesday, August 8, 2007 - 12:02am [Dine in]

This place is really tucked away! You have to be really looking for it to catch it, unless you live in the area.

It's a really tiny restaurant, not a lot of space at all. Reasonably clean considering, a touch beat up. Is there even a washroom? We went around the "back", but the door said "storage space". The only other way was through the kitchen, so we didn't bother asking.

Sadly, only 2 of us, so we had the roti canai, curry laksa and rendang beef with a "bundung" (?) drink. Came in at $20 with taxes, so pretty cheap eats.

Best in town? Hmm...certainly doesn't seem like it first time around. The roti canai was pretty tasty. Lacking texture-wise. I don't think it even ranks in the top 3 in Vancouver. Curry laksa was okay, but unfortunately, it was possibly the worst I've had in town (not that it's bad, it's just not good). The rendang beef was a big thumbs up though, a bit plain, but taste-wise that might have been ranked among the top in GVRD.

It's probably worth another trip to try the other dishes just in case. Not sure I'd make a special trip to have a taste, it's didn't bowl us over. I'm really disappointed they cancelled their rojak, which might have been the only place to get rojak in town.

Is it authentic...? Hmm....have any of you been to Singapore and Malaysia? This tastes like a home-cooked meal, but not nearly as good as the stuff you get at the hawker centers or the food courts (their food courts are actually pretty decent).

On the plus, we felt fine afterwards. Not bloated or thirsty or greasy, so that could be a big bonus.

New owner/chef ... still decent
Submitted Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 12:17am [Dine in]

We've been here many times over the years. Recently they shut down for renovations. My, the place has been cleaned up A LOT. No more of that homey feel.

The good news is that everything is cleaned up. There are lot more people to service you and the people running seem to be still all Japanese.

The kitchen staff has changed for sure. The menu looks like your average Japanese place, but thankfully, it is just "under-described". Ask for the fish dinner again (make sure you ask them what is special for the day, when we were there, it turned out to be a big list of 5-6 choices!) and you get something very similar to what they had before, complete with some extra side dishes. Different, but arguably just as good and still decent sized.

The sushi/sashimi that came out looked pretty darn good too. We'll certainly be back to have another try.

It's definitely a different place, with different feel but the food style looks like it could still be what you might expect from Hachibei.
Too bad they place baseball on the small LCD on the wall instead of hockey (or sumo) now...

Corner 234008 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Decent quickie place
Submitted Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 12:10am [Dine in]

While there are many HK-style "tea" restaurants in town, this one seems to be more like a Taiwan style version.
The owners apparently moved here from Vancouver Island (hey, it's livelier here) and the specialty is a pork dish, so be sure you order that. By itself it is quite decent, but it needs to be dipped in the sauce to finish it off. There are other smaller dishes of vegetables, meats, etc.
Of course they also have the "usual" assortment of teas, bubble tea, fruit juice/milk etc. It's all quite yummy and a nice change from the usual "HK-style" fare.

When we were there, service was quite friendly and the owner seems a really jolly guy. Restaurant is newly renovated it seems and is a modern, clean decor.

Even though it is right in the middle of Cambie street construction, it was very packed when we went, so it must be good.

Submitted Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 12:27am [Dine in]

It looks like a pretty average "greasy spoon" Chinese, HK-style restaurant. By Vancouver standards, sorry, not outstanding, so it qualifies as "Decent"

The decor, interior is as expected (which is slightly beatup, if you look carefully, and as for cleanliness, don't look too closely ;-), but seriously, it's okay).

There is some pretty decent dishes here, like the crab or lobster steamed with the rice. I've heard these guys are "famous" for their tofu pudding. I remember it being pretty darn excellent last time, but this time it was merely good.

Service was passable, but not great. I'll let it slide considering the place was absolutely PACKED on a Wed. night.

I wouldn't be doing any celebrations here unless you've a hankering for some "key" dishes (you'll have to experiment to find the ones you like). But if you're in the area and need a good dinner, this wouldn't be a bad choice. I guess it is good bang for the buck here. It's like a neighbourhood dinner place?

Adonis Greek Taverna1265 Granville Street, Suite 120, Vancouver
Submitted Wednesday, July 11, 2007 - 11:56pm [Dine in]

Not overwhelming. It's a nice little place. The prices are very good, I think most things are under $10.
The mussels were the most plump and juicy mussels that we've ever had (and that includes Lumiere). However, the flavour wasn't quite up there. The bread (thick pita) was a good thumbs up. That was pretty much the story with the other things as well, the dolmathes dinner and the roast lamb. It's a good deal, very tasty, but there's a bit lacking in taste to give it a higher mark.
On the plus side, even though we were really full, we did not go away feeling greasy and bloated, which is a rare feeling for us walking away from a Greek restaurant. Service was also quite nice and pleasant (okay, it wasn't fine dining but more than met what we expect of this type of place).
I may even go here rather than line up at Stepho's...

Not the usual Japanese...
Submitted Thursday, June 28, 2007 - 10:39am [Dine in]

We've been back 3 times now (though not necessarily by our choice, some guests loved it so much they wanted to go back). The ratings here are probably accurate. It is really quite good and worth a try! This is definitely not your cheapest restaurant, but it is worth the money. The $40 summer menu (5 courses with dessert?) will leave you more than full enough.
(FYI, most of the waitresses and kitchen staff are Japanese)
I love that they serve pretty much all wild stock. No farmed salmon, all wild sockeye!

Looking for traditional Japanese, you should go elsewhere. Here is where you can get foie gras nigiri sushi, prosciutto roll (much better than you would imagine, very good actually). The creme brulee sampler is most excellent & unique, with orange and green tea flavours. Their uni is now probably the best I've had (coming from someone who would never touch the stuff before), just edging out the previous top in from Taipei.

The only things holding back a higher rating:
- Some of the waitresses need to be more up on the sake & other dishes. (But at least one of them is very good)
- Need to change their omakase menu more often or offer bigger menu.
- Consistency! It's always good, but sometimes the same dish, same table can vary from merely good to excellent.

Not an everyday place, save it for special occasions. But definitely a place to go for new taste sensations.

It's just okay.
Submitted Thursday, June 28, 2007 - 10:30am [Dine in]

So maybe this is the best Vancouver can muster, but we're global, so it will be judged by global standards.
We had a large party, treated very well, and all things given, the kitchen and single waitress did good.

Highlight was the fried tilapia. For about $12, quite good, not bad at all. The tacos were decent and everything else was pretty good. Honestly, no real complaints. It's just that in terms of variety, price and yumminess, it still doesn't stack up to my all-time favourite. (Unfortunately, not in town. 16hrs away in San Jose in the Chavez supermarket, the one on McKee Rd).

Capital B Restaurant1344 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Submitted Monday, June 18, 2007 - 12:00am [Dine in]

It's situated right next to a meat market/grocery. Not very flashy. It's also a buffet style restaurant, which is usually danger sign for me, but heck we gave it a try since Yaaz was packed. At $12 per person, it was worth a chance. At least it looked very clean and somewhat modern.

The food was surprisingly good, it's worth $12 for a meal. Add on top the sheer variety and buffet, it should get an overall outstanding.
There are all sorts of meat (except pork of course). The koobideh is not the greatest we've had, but much more than passable. The beef ribs are possibly the best we've had. Roast lamb, lamb shanks. Chicken done two different ways, gormeh sabze and other goodies. And everytime we return, there's one or 2 new things to try. They always have the regular rice as well as the saffron stuff with the barberries.

They also have a salad bar with lots of choice, but that's pretty normal stuff. Don't waste your time there. It doesn't see much turn-over either.

The kitchen is sort of open, and you can see them constantly cooking to replenish the empty items, so it's always fresh, not sitting around. The owners and staff are always eating there too, so a good sign.

It's a buffet style, so not much to say about the service, but the waitress has always been very helpful and very nice to us.

It's $12. How can you lose? As one of the guys termed it, this is "the happiest place on Earth!"

One of the best and unique in town...
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 11:46pm [Dine in]

I'm surprised there are so few ratings on this one here. It recently got rated highly in Vancouver magazine and several others.
Very deserving. This feels like a higher-end Chinese restaurant, not like your usual greasy joint. Service and decor to match.

We've been here many (too many?) times for dim sum and dinner and they are great at both. Be sure to make reservations, as they are almost always really, really packed.

Food style is Cantonese influenced, and they are semi-regularly adding and changing menu items. Definitely not afraid to experiment (this is one Chinese place where you can get foie gras, though I'm not sure it's a regular menu item, we've had it at least 3-4 times there).

If you can, try to find someone who has been there before, preferably regularly. It seems like they have many regulars and they tend to get slightly preferential treatment. (e.g. you might have a slight wait, even if you did reserve). Once you're seated though, it will all be fine, they seem quite nice and not snooty. They seem to be quite adept at handling a full restaurant, so service shouldn't be that bad. If you do go, try not to pick your usual that you try at lower end Chinese restaurants, you might be missing the point.

Also, I believe they are prepared to do special requests if you let them know in advance, such as vegetarianizing everything (which tastes a damn site better than the Naam!)

Taste of Portugal, A2141 Kingsway, Vancouver
It's all good
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 11:36pm [Dine in]

Hmm...I'm not sure if the food rating is a bit high, but I'll be generous.

It's not in the most expected place and we were expecting it to be a quiet little joint, but we ended up (unfortunately?) on a night when they were packed solid, totally swamped. But they still managed some pretty decent service and we were treated very nicely. Decore is not fine, but it feels like ... well what you imagine a little neighbourhood restaurant in Lisbon might be like.

We tried drinks (non-alcoholic) soup, salad, 2 tapas, a main and 2 desserts and after everything, it came out about $65 for the both of us. The food was very tasty, fresh and not at all greasy or fatty. I will definitely recommend the grilled sardines tapas. Very, very tasty! (When a couple of Chinese people like your fish, especially a boy with Cantonese roots, you're doing something very right). Kale & potato soup was light tasting, yet substantial, and the code cakes were even better. We went with the roast chicken main, which was, well, pretty decent. I'm afraid when you've had the vast aray of chicken available at Chinese places, it's hard to give this really top marks, but we had no regrets about this. Flavourful both inside and out, not greasy. Slightly dry on the thicker breast pieces, but still one of the better "western" ones we've had. The accompanying "fries" were a delight. Thumbs up on that. I will also recommend the tomato salad with the home-made cheese, which was really light and refreshing.

Too bad most of the desserts were sold out. We did get the flan and rice pudding (which I'm not normally big on), and got a pleasant surprise. Very nice flavours and not too sweet. We ate both of them and wished we could stomach more, which is very high praise here. Too often we find North American style desserts to be much to sweet and rich after the first few bites.

Highly recommend you drop by and try this place. If we ever run out of places to try, we'd definitely return.

Good stuff in unexpected area
Submitted Friday, May 25, 2007 - 12:30am [Dine in]

I've not been back to New Westminster for many years and I was pleasantly surprised by the neighbourhood and the restaurant.
It's a modern, clean looking place, quite compact, though not that small. Service was quite good, absolutely no complaints. They were very attentive.

The green papaya salad was quite good. I think it lacked a lot of green papaya (was it even there? I think I tasted more mango), but it was definitely excellent, a little spicy and a good mix of different flavours. Just not sure it should be called green papaya...

Roti canai was also good, maybe one of the better ones we've had in Vancouver, though it is not up to the best that we've had in Singapore. The satay was solid, but not outstanding. Waiter recommended the tofu goreng, which was also good (if a bit spicy), but again, not _outstanding_.

For some mains, we had a pineapple seafood fried rice. Had a unique edge to the taste and was a big thumbs up (but .. where's the pineapple?). Also a mixed seafood curry with one of the choice of sauces. I was slightly disappointed when it came out tasting very similar to the seafood fried rice, but it was good. Also pricey at $17, but we did get 3 good mussels in the pile plus 3 really big, juicy clams, along with big shrimps and other goodies. Pricey yes, but they didn't skimp out and cheap on you either! Thumbs up to that too.

Even if you're not in the area, I think it's a nice change from the usual suspects down in Vancouver (Tropika, Banana Leaf, etc). Solid place that's worth a try.

Nor Boo Korean Restaurant1536 Robson St., Vancouver
Decent food
Submitted Monday, May 21, 2007 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

This is the second time we've been there and both were pretty consistent.
The place is like some place in Seoul where the younger crowd might drop in to grab some food. That's not saying it isn't "family", but it's blaring with (too?) loud pop music and young waitresses who aren't always on the ball.

Service isn't exactly bad, but it's not great, not when it's busy. The waitresses barely have enough time and will probably miss most of your requests.

Most people seem to go there for the Korean style hotpot, which is a pretty good deal. Even the smallest pot (anywhere from $20-30) will serve between 2-4 people easily, so it won't be an expensive proposition.

The food is pretty good and I would say leaning more on the home or street style. Definitely not fine dining. Having grown up with Chinese food, I don't see anything that is amazing or surprising. They're all very familiar flavours, and I'm pretty sure I could replicate most of the shabu dishes easily in my own kitchen, at similar quality.
If you want a hearty meal with a bunch of friends, it's a good place to drop by when you're in the area. But unless you've been hiding underneath rocks recently, I wouldn't expect to get bowled over.

Gin Kaku Sushi1348 Hornby Street, Vancouver
Good surprise
Submitted Sunday, May 20, 2007 - 11:19am [Dine in]

Unassuming little place, you'd think it's just another one of Vancouver's sushi joints. The furniture is a bit odd for a Japanese restaurant, but it's okay.
The chef is not Japanese, I think he is Chinese-Vietnamese or something, but don't let that put you off. We were informed of that before we came in and word is he has apprenticed at all the right places.

We ordered a bunch of rolls including a ginjuku? (I think it's the house special). It was totally, totally unexpected. The taste & texture was absolutely wonderful and very different from what we have ever tried. You'll just have to try for yourself! Also had a yam roll which also exhibited excellent texture. All the deep friend components were done fresh and maintained its crispiness. The kamikaze roll with tuna? The biggest compliment is that my wife ate half of it, and she normally won't touch raw fish.

With average prices but above average (and unexpected!) sushi, this is definitely worth a return trip

Rinconcito Salvadorean Restaurant2062 Commercial Dr., Vancouver
Decent, not that interesting except maybe pupusa's
Submitted Sunday, May 20, 2007 - 11:10am [Dine in]

The service was not bad, but they have possibly the world's slowest (talking literally and upstairs) waiter in town. The owner(?) is okay, but overall, maybe they need to go to "HK Tea Restaurant Boot Camp" and learn a few things about running a small restaurant efficiently.
Not quite hole-in-the-wall. It seems clean, it's okay, no complaints.

There's nothing surprising or amazing here for us. We ordered the Rinconcito Special, which was basically sliced, thin steak with peppers and onions (think beef fajita at some chain restaurant) sided with rice & beans and a bit of greenery. At $10, it was okay. The other main was, I guess, what is supposed to be a typical vegetarian Salvadorean dinner? (Cena Tipica?). Totally not worth it at $8 because it was essentially a small half cup of rice, more beans (which, to be honest, were quite good compared to what we've had at Mexican & Columbian restuarants), scrambled eggs (about 2 eggs worth), 1/8 avocado (which was surprisingly good considering I don't like avocado's) and a 1" cube of what tasted like less salty feta cheese.

The fried casava dish, at $5 I think, was much more interesting. Definitely worth the $5 and I would even say mildly addictive. That was probably the highlight for me.

We, of course, ordered a pupusa. We noticed most people ordered stacks of pupusa's and only pupusa's. These were pretty good, imagine a pizza pop made with elasticy flour with a corn taste (not sure if it was pure corn flour) and fried up. It was sort of like that. Actually what it really reminded us of was the "Chinese pancakes" found on the streets of Seoul, except with a savory filling instead of sweet. At $2.75 a pop, you can't really go wrong. (But I'll note the Korean aunties make these things a damn sight faster).

I'd say go for a try, since there isn't many Salvadorean restaurants in town, but don't expect to get blown away by something really different.

I would've never expected it to be an eatery, though I've passed down a few times. It looks like ... well, a food factory. It's hidden away from most restaurants, but the bonus is that it's a nice quiet neighbourhood and easy to get parking.

The decor inside is actually quite nice, a little modern and clean. Service was really really nice, no complaints there.

We asked for the No MSG option (funny it isn't the default and it's hidden on the back page of the menu). 2 appetizers and 3 mains ran us $45 after tax (before tips) and we had lots to take home.

The menu is pretty amazing for its sheer size, somewhere around 200 items. Perhaps surprisingly (at least for me), the food was pretty good! It tasted fresh and clean, veggies not overcooked, just right.
The deep fried coconut milk was nice, if a little greasy. Lettuce wrap was light yet satisfying, and the house special fried noodle also hit the spot.

Overall, great place to stop by and stop for a casual meal.

Submitted Sunday, May 13, 2007 - 12:55am [Dine in]

We went there for lunch. The service was nice and the waitresses were definitely easy on the eyes, but hey, that's okay as long as they can deliver.

We had the blackened fish burger (which had a choice of fries, yam fries, cowboy salad or some other salad) and a tandoori chicken quesadilla with the same choice of sides.
$10 for each, so it won't break the bank. However, considering the portion, it isn't cheap either. (Next time we might try the brunch menu instead, they are a bit cheaper and looked like they might be just as interesting).

The big question is, is it worth it? Well, we didn't go away feeling cheated or hungry is the best I can say. The tandoori chicken quesadilla was quite tasty, though I found the mango chutney inside a bit "strong" and sweet for my taste. It's a good concept and carried off decently. We had the yam fries with that one, and I have to say the yam fries are slightly addictive.
We heard the fish burger was recommended and it didn't disappoint. It came with a huge chunk of fish, the real stuff, not some fish product. It's not a dainty burger and the fish was well done, yet wasn't completely masked. It still tasted like (good) fish. I have to say this is probably one of the better fish burgers I've had.

If I were in the area and felt like something a bit different, it would be under consideration. If you're not picky about what you eat but wanted a similar style, I think you could get stuff just as good and slightly cheaper at the "chain" restaurants like Milestones, WhiteSpot, etc.

I think it is worth a try if you haven't been. Thumbs up on this one.

Unique food ... and pretty good
Submitted Friday, May 11, 2007 - 12:12am [Dine in]

I understand this is supposed to be sort of Shanghai-style food, which is popping up more and more here. We went there this week on recommendation of mother-in-law (who ought to know a thing or two about this type of food).

It's a clean, modern restaurant with a big, visible kitchen (always good). It's staffed with young-ish looking girls seemingly typical of many Richmond restaurants. But, perhaps untypically, we did get pretty decent and attentive service (and no, sorry, I'm not that hot, except maybe in my dreams ;-).

The steamed dumplings (xiao long bao) were quite good, one of the more resilient yet thin skins. Not the most juicy (too much can be dangerous), but it was tasty. Thumbs up. We had several types, including a vegetarian one made with some mystery squash. The drunken chicken was a slight surprise, it was completely de-boned and rolled up into sushi-roll sized pieces. Taste was very good, texture was perhaps slightly on the coarse side. Those were probably the highs that I remember. The next couple of dishes was also quite nice. One was a green vegetable, and another a mix of fish, bamboo, mushrooms, etc. The only drawback ... these 2 dishes were loaded with oil (or so it seemed. Funny I didn't feel it afterwards. Maybe it just looks like oil).

We finished off with some sweets, a steamed dumpling filled with red bean I think. Notable for its dual layer skin with, we think, sticky rice and regular wheat flower. I also liked the next one, which was a sweet "soup" with red dates stuffed with sticky rice dumplings.

I think perhaps "Outstanding" is a bit high for food rating, but then "Solid" might be a bit low.
Bottom line is that it serves up relatively unique cuisine of quite good quality. Decent service, clean restaurant. Definitely worth a repeat visit.

Wang's Ginseng Chicken Soup Restaurant3003 St. John's St, #101, Port Moody
Still good
Submitted Friday, May 11, 2007 - 12:01am [Dine in]

We went back to try the ginseng chicken soup. I have to admit, it is not as good as the one in Seoul. But ... it's a long way to Seoul vs. Port Moody.

Different server this time, but still very, very good service. It isn't fine dining service, but it's very clean, modern decor, and waiter was always courteous and attentive. No complaints here.

The ginseng chicken soup was clean tasting, but not bland. The chicken was stuffed with rice, gingko nuts, chestnut, and yes, a big piece of ginseng. Along with the side dishes, it's probably close to enough for 2 people, so it's not too pricey. (There's 3 styles of kimchi and a small salad that comes with every meal). They gave us a small dish of the fried sweet potato (which we were going to order anyways). I actually prefer this to the ones we tried on the streets of Seoul. We again ordered the house special noodle salad. Well, I know we said last time it was a bit pricey (it doesn't look like the menu picture, which looks really nice :-), but it really is tasty and unique. And it is more than enough for 2 if you have other things (we ended up packing it home).

I'm still a bit ambivalent about the rating. I think this is definitely worth returning. It's hard to give it an "outstanding" mark given how many outstanding restaurants we've eaten at all around the world. But giving a "solid" rating seems perhaps slightly short-changing it. Hopefully this will average it out.

If you want to give it a try, I recommend dragging a long a bunch of friends and going for the "combos", which are essentially bulk discounts and make it quite a decent deal for the amount & quality of food you get.

I'm sure this place must've gone downhill, since previously people have been quite happy with it. When we went, it was still very busy and we had high hopes since many people had indicated it was a very good place. Maybe our standards have been raised, since I spent quite a few years in San Jose (with what is probably the largest Vietnamese community on the continent) trying a lot of good Vietnamese food.

We ordered a variety of dishes, including pho, a rice dish and many other things. We felt it was mostly heavy on the MSG. The pho was barely passable. The broth was quite bland. Nothing special.

No need to waste my breath on this one. Green Lemongrass in Richmond was MUCH better. I doubt we'll be back to this one.

Fassil Ethiopian Restaurant736 East Broadway, Unit 5, Vancouver
Very decent & authentic place
Submitted Wednesday, May 2, 2007 - 12:45am [Dine in]

Before we moved here, my wife's ex-coworker is actually Ethiopian, so we have actually tasted what she considered to be really good and authentic Ethiopian food at the best restaurant in town.

Fassil is pretty darned close to that gold standard (which is unfortunately not in Canada). We've tried another one in Vancouver before, and it's not close to being as good. It's hard to describe what Ethiopian food is like. Some of the flavours are familiar, yet at the same time, there is nothing quite like it.
It's eaten with your hands along with the spongy, sour bread. Be warned, it can be VERY spicy!

If you've never tried Ethiopian food before, Fassil is a great place to start. If you like Ethiopian food, well, Fassil is a good place to go back to. Service was friendly, not quick but not slow.

I've noticed a lot more Ethiopian places opening up here, so maybe Fassil's crown won't last long. It's tough to give it 4 stars, since I think we've had better. But the bottom line is, it's worth a return trip.
