Boonie's BBQ & Soul Food6150 176th Street, Surrey
Some of the best in a limited field
Submitted Friday, March 6, 2009 - 12:25am [Dine in]

Okay, so it's in a curling rink. So? One of the best Southern BBQ places (Uncle Frank's, who is not my uncle. I don't know who's uncle he is) I've had lives in the back of a biker bar. Another runs itself out of an abandoned gas station. Unfortunately, both of those are a long 16 hour drive down south of the border. Besides, you get to watch live curling with your meal. Or you can have a chat with Boonie, who seems like a fun guy doing what he enjoys.

We had the ribs with collard greens & peas+rice, and the seafood gumbo and the pulled-pork burger. To start, the gumbo had fantastic flavour, like I've never had before. Was it authentic? Don't know, don't care. It's just good. Now on to the pulled-pork. What can I say? We nearly inhaled that thing. Tasty, tasty, tasty. Perfect blend of moistness, flavour, and meat vs. bun quantity. I could've easily had another one. The large dinner, well, maybe it wasn't so large, so while we easily polished it off, it did keep us more than full. The sides were decently done, no complaints. The corn bread was possibly the best I've had in recent memory. The ribs? Falling off the bone, with perfect amount of smokey flavour and barbecue sauce.

Overall, good food. Left our tummies happy afterward. Surprisingly not greasy at all, so even though we were full, didn't go away with bad, bloaty feeling. The best compliment I can give is that we went away wishing we could eat more. Value wise, well, it seems a bit pricey until you go shopping for your own rack of ribs and realize how much it costs before you even start cooking...(plus, how much smoking can you do at home?)

Is it worth a trip out? Yes, because there's nothing else like this in town except Memphis Blues, which is much more expensive and many would argue, barely as good, if at all.

Can't wait till the full restaurant opens in a few months when he can offer his "full" menu. Will be back when we've got another meat craving.

Maji1175 Johnson Street, 360, Coquitlam
Good Japanese food, impossibly fast.
Submitted Friday, March 6, 2009 - 12:09am [Dine in]

Tiny little place. Inside is unexpectedly nice and fun for a place out here. Another one of those places which wouldn't be ashamed to be situated in Yaletown.

Service was definitely attentive and friendly, just lacking some of that professional polish at the higher-end places. Yes, they did give us a lot of freebies.

We "randomly" ordered a bunch of stuff off the menu and the waitress mentioned that we'd picked some of their most popular items. They turned out good, problem is waaay too many deep fried stuff on the menu, though a lot of them don't say so on the menu.

The food was pretty good, not amazing, but good, especially for way out here in the boonies ;-) The one amazing thing was how fast all the dishes came out. Faster than McDonald's, faster than we could chow down!

Should you come here? Well, if you live or work nearby and don't feel like a long jaunt into town, it's a no-brainer. If you are from elsewhere, hmm... well, it's good. Definitely good effort. It just might be worth a trip. Barely. The value is okay, we were pretty stuffed with all the freebies and stuff, but at the end of the day, the bill still came to over $20 per person (no drinks), and I think I could get better than that elsewhere.

Zipang Sushi3710 Main Street, Vancouver
Stylish, good and surprisingly inexpensive food with unique presentation & taste
Submitted Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 12:39am [Dine in]

Didn't have my hopes up for this place, but things did start looking up when we found out we had to reserve and arrived to a full restaurant. And this just for a late lunch. Hmmm...

Funky place. Who would've put Bauhaus and sushi together? Well it happens here. For the most part it's neat and tidy, but I'm not keen on the old chairs with grungy looking cushions. I have to say they run a very tight ship. The kitchen is tiny and there was only a handful of staff for everything, yet service and food came out reasonably quickly.

Especially given how nicely done the food was! We ordered a bunch of rolls and a zipang salad. The salad was pretty good, but they kind of over-loaded on the fried noodles, otherwise good concept and good taste. The rolls were amazing. For starters, there are many unique creations not found elsewhere and they have pieced together interesting tastes in a good combination. To top it off, the workmanship and plating is absolutely top-notch. Normally have only seen this at restauarants twice the price or much more.
Everything was fresh tasting, done very well with excellent presentation and an inexpensive price to boot.

Big win here. Highly recommended trip. We hope to be returning.

Brunch a la Galerie @ Autumn Brook Gallery1545 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
It's an art gallery. It's a restaurant?
Submitted Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 11:13pm [Dine in]

Umm... well, it's mostly an art gallery. I guess it doesn't make much money, so they decided to open the place up for brunch as well.
Is this a place you want to eat at? Some people do I guess.
Well, at least it isn't some slop-shod job. It is nicely done, so you don't feel like it's a "secondary source of income".

The servers are friendly enough. But the kitchen is slooooow. They certainly take their time making a meal.
At least the food is good. Made fresh and with good ingredients, no complaints there. You'll get your usuals, omellettes, benedicts and stuff, though the menu is not vast.
It is a bit pricey though.

So, is it worth a trip? Hmm... aaaah, hmmm.... no. Okay, so they do use good ingredients and the cooking is good, but the menu doesn't offer anything particularly exciting and with slow service and high prices to top it off, it kind of makes it off my list unless you're a real art gallery rat.

Savary Island Pie Company1533 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Huge bread, good pies 'n sandwiches
Submitted Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 11:03pm [Dine in]

This place is like , umm .. a little coffee shop is the best I can describe it. It's very small with most of the back space being taken up by the bakery. You wouldn't necessarily come here for the ambience or service, though the servers are generally friendly and helpful.

It's a pie company, right? So we had a pie. Not the sweet kind. Chicken. It was good, very good ingredients. Left belly happy and full. Also had soup and grilled cheese (this is a premium grilled cheese, not white slice bread and Kraft slices!), also yummy.

Well, let's see, it is quite good and I suppose the place to hit for pies of all sorts. The food quality in general is very good, though there are no amazing dishes that I could see here. We did get a loaf of bread on the way out. It is about $5 for a loaf, but I will say it is HUGE, probably about twice the size of anything anywhere else. And it is pretty decent, though not the best I've had in town.
Worth a try for the pies. Good place to stop by for a snack or light meal.

Henry's Kitchen904 West King Edward Ave., Vancouver
Great quality. Good food? Yes. Exciting? Not so much.
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 11:45pm [Dine in]

We've been to the old place a long, long time ago. Despite the bad reviews here, we decided to drop in on a Friday night and have a look.
It was reasonably busy, but probably not as much as they should be. Decor is , umm ... well, in Vancouver it would be "dated and out of style". Were it a little restaurant in France, maybe the description would be more generous.

Nothing wrong with the service, but there is no pretense at matching what the best in the city have to offer.

Food. Let's start with the positives. The ingredients are absolutely top notch. Each dish seemed to have been cooked to near-perfection. I had a roast chicken (I specifically chose that to as a test) and it was tasty, tender and moist, even by Chinese chicken standards. I would say the plating is less than top, but otherwise, two thumbs up on the food.
People have been complaining about value. That's a tougher question. Most mains run between $20-30. That's not cheap. On the good side, have you been to Earl's lately? (or Cactus or Milestone's...) From that standpoint, I think Henry's is still offering decent value. On the other hand, the pessimist in me would say ... Salade de fruits offers very similar fare at similar quality but at _slightly_ lower prices .... hmmmm .... tough call, isn't it?

Now the big knock against Henry's is this. Where's the chef? Where's the creativity? Our meal (we had a reasonably good sampling with our party size) was good but left me thinking that there was merely an excellent cook in the kitchen, but not a chef. There was nothing "new", nothing to blow my mind away, not even the slightest little twist to any of the dishes (okay, maybe the goat milk ice cream ...), and isn't that what separates a mere cook from a chef?

Maybe that's just personal preference. I know a lot of people love to eat the old "standbys" day in and day out. So I will give Henry's the benefit of the doubt for now. If you are in the area and looking for an excellent quality meal at reasonable prices, this is one to drop by. But if you're willing to travel farther, you may find something at better value or something to give you a bit more "wow".

Why the heck is such great food hiding here?
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 7:35pm [Dine in]

Yes, it's a diner. Yes, it is hidden away in the middle of nowhere. No, it won't win any awards for decoration. It is very obviously a diner so do not expect anything fancy. It's actually quite clean, but more than overdue for a renovation.

Service? Hey, it's like a cafeteria/diner! Friendly enough, but do be prepared to get your own coffee. Who cares? That's not why you go.

The food, well, usually I say that it's good for the price, or for what this place is or ... some other qualifier. BUT NOT HERE! I mean, this is just great food PERIOD! We figure that Anton is the chef/proprietor. He surprised us by wandering around in proper chef gear (yeah, clogs, the checkered pants and all). Not expected from a diner chef...
The German breakfast was fantastic. Nothing too salty or greasy. Maybe it's because he makes his own ham, makes his own bacon and his own sausage. The soup of a day happened to be turkey lemongrass. I couldn't stop slurping that down, it was amazing. We also had a shnitzel burger. Flavour was excellent, not at all heavy or greasy despite being packed with 2 layers of fried, battered meat.
Then Anton came by with some beer for the next table. Bavarian lager from some secret keg or something. It was a good, proper German sized beer mug with the biggest head I've ever seen. I don't even drink beer and I wanted to have one.

Most items are under $7, and many under $6 so the value here is absolutely unbeatable. I don't think I've ever award 5 stars before. This is the first.

What I don't get is why Anton toils away in this discrete little corner when he could probably get much more acclaim at another location. This place is great and is absolutely worth the trip out. Next time maybe for their own home-made corned beef and sauerkraut...
Very highly recommended. I'll be heading back for sure.

Wow, so it really is good. One of the best in town so far...
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 7:22pm [Dine in]

We keep driving by this place and never going, until this time.

Inside, hmm...well, exactly what I expect from most Indian restaurants here. Clean enough, but not amazing. Nothing to give me worries at least. Looks a bit dated, so they could definitely use a refresh.

Service was acceptable, friendly if a bit inefficient, but hey, again, for this kind of place, no complaints.

Food, well, "Indian" is a pretty broad term as India is such a diverse place. I'm no expert, but I'm going to nail it as Northern style. I guess sometimes the reviews are spot-on. This place is great! The naan was fresh, one of the best I've had in recent memory (at least in this town). We had a tandoori dish and a paneer mahkti (?). Something like that. Also one of the best in recent memory. Tasty, flavourful and fresh. Doesn't sound like much, but we were very stuffed afterwards. And very satisfied. And to top it off, we never got that bad, bloaty feeling we get from many other Indian places. Nice!

Of course we will always keep looking, but this place is probably the best in town so far, and with such reasonable prices and reasonably diverse menu, it gives every reason to come back. Okay, so maybe 4 stars is slightly on the generous side, but if not them, then who? I will retract later when I find better...
Most heartily recommended here!

Sweet Obsession Cakes & Pastries2611 West 16th Ave, Vancouver
Good but not worth it.
Submitted Friday, February 6, 2009 - 1:16am [Dine in]

It's now split into the restaurant and the dessert place. The dessert place is small and often packed, though nice, I'd say just take the stuff to go.

Except ... I concur with the previous reviewer. We had exactly the same experience and we could not believe our eyes.
While it was tasty, it was SO NOT worth it. Zuccoto is not _that_ fancy, and it's not like you can't get similar stuff elsewhere.

If you're looking for a good dessert hit, I'd rather go to Berry Good in Richmond or way over to Thomas Haas in North Vancouver if it's not too late.

It's good stuff, but NOT recommended because of the extremely poor value.

Hurricane Grill, The1137 Marinaside Crescent, Vancouver
More reasonably priced usuals...
Submitted Saturday, January 24, 2009 - 9:01pm [Dine in]

Okay, let's get past the ugly sign on the outside. Inside is relatively decent and we had no problems with the service.

The food is, hmm...whaddya call it, "American" grill type? You know, burgers, steaks, the usual suspects that we used to expect from the big chains like Earl's, Cactus, etc. (at least until Feenie et. al stepped in and started raising the bar...)

There's no surprises here whatsoever that we could see. Execution was decent, the food was good but not great.

So, what's the deal with this place? Well, they have one selling point in that the food is decent and it is INEXPENSIVE. At least for Yaletown. Nearly all the burger platters ring in under $10 and you get a choice of soup, salad or fries. Most of the brunch dishes are similar and particularly expensive ones just hit $12.
Will it survive? I dunno. Food-wise, there's really no unique reason to go here. But if you ARE in Yaletown and you need to eat, this is one of the cheapest "real" restaurants.

Submitted Friday, January 23, 2009 - 12:34am [Dine in]

Well, it is a food court joint, what do you expect other than just food?

Is it tasty? Yeah, okay, I'll give it that. We had the beef one and a cheese one. Is it worth the trip to Richmond? Hmmmm .... not so sure about that.
Is it authentic? Well, not being South American, I'm not sure. But I can tell you it is not Columbian style empanada nor is it Peruvian style ...

Hey, I guess you could do far worse at a food court (but to be honest, there's a lot of other decent choices at the Landsdowne food court).

Tasty new experience. Go and change your mind.
Submitted Friday, January 23, 2009 - 12:23am [Dine in]

Not sure what to expect before we headed here. We arrived there to find the restaurant maybe a third full only. Not a great sign, but we'll chalk it up to the other diners rushing to places participating in "Dine-Out".

First off, this is not your typical Indian restaurant. I mean, it looks like it belongs on Robson, it's clean, elegant, very upscale look. And there was none of the usual spice smell. (Is that a good sign?)
Service was very professional, absolutely no complaints about that.

The food, it actually took time to come after we ordered. That was potentially a good sign! As we waited, we assumed that they were making it fresh to order. What a novel idea! ;-)
We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic. We had a couple of salads (lightly minted Yukon gold was one of them), a tandoori dish (kangaroo) and their halibut. This was one of those experiences that changes your mind about what a cuisine could or should be.

Is this a "traditional" Indian restaurant? No, absolutely not. (The tandoori kangaroo and musk ox were the first giveaways ;-). Is it an authentic Indian restaurant? I would say yes. Using traditional techniques and flavours, but new ingredients to piece together new culinary creations. And done with very good skill (my gosh, the naan was nearly as thin and light as most roti prata, but still had the texture and taste of a good naan).
It does come at a price though. Dessert (a wonderful pistachio kulfi, like no other we had before), no drinks, tax & tips included, we probably ran up roughly $60. (Mains are usually $16-24, but keep in mind they are "right-sized", so if you're used to North American portions, you will need to order at least a couple of appies & salad).
That being said, it's quite a unique culinary experience and the quality and price are in-line with this stature of restaurant down around Robson.

Whole-heartedly recommended. I would definitely go back.

Surely it gets better than this...
Submitted Friday, January 23, 2009 - 12:11am [Dine in]

Hey, good ratings from this place. It looks clean, neat, what could go wrong, right?
Started off nicely, the service gets a big thumbs up. They're friendly, efficient and very attentive. No problems about that.

But you know, we're here for the food. I would say the food is of good quality and is "clean" and decent tasting. I would be pretty okay with it ... if I'd whipped it up in a dinner rush after work.

Simply put, the food is quite "bland". There is not much unique here, nothing that exciting. And the ingredients & quality do not justify the price. Just for example, the steamed mussels. They came in a heavily gingered broth, which I would call boiled rather than steamed, and they were NOT fresh mussels, they were of the type that you get in a frozen pack from T&T.

Seems like nice people trying to do a good, honest job. But straight up, their culinary skills are a little bit lacking. Probably best left for a good home kitchen rather than a restaurant. Pass on this one.

Kwong Chow Congee & Noodle House3163 Main Street, Vancouver
Just Another Passable Place
Submitted Friday, January 23, 2009 - 12:04am [Dine in]

Nothing special here, we popped by on a minor craving and because the other congee place was shut down.
This is your usual "old school" Cantonese style noodle and congee (and rice of course) place. The prices are inexpensive and you can get pretty decent lunch meals.
There is nothing surprising here, the food is passable, but nothing to be amazed at.
Service is what you'd expect from a place like this. They get you your food and that's about it.
Doesn't look too grungy and we never got sick afterwards :-)

Not worth a visit. It's not bad, it's just not anything special. If you're hungry, it's a good place to pop in and have a munch, but otherwise, spend your stomach space elsewhere.

Landmark Hot Pot House4023 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Good hot pot? Yes. Great restaurant ... ?
Submitted Sunday, December 21, 2008 - 6:39pm [Dine in]

Place was packed on the night we went (not my choice). Pleased to se eeverything was reasonably clean and decorated ok. W.C. was just passable, expected of most Chinese restaurants.

Given how busy they are, I'll give them good marks for service. It was incredibly hectic, and even though they occasionally required a reminder, we got everything, no mistakes, in very good time.

Now about the food. I'm very ambivalent when it comes to hot pot. I mean ... who's cooking? How much effort is it to procure good raw ingredients? That being said, this is one hot pot place that actually might make a pass in my books. They have very inventive and unique soup bases. (The one we had qualified as a meal in itself, so I don't mind paying for that). As others have mentioned, all the ingredients were top notch and well "prepared" (if you could call it that). Maybe the best in town. The quantitiy won't leave you wanting either.

What can I say? Given that I'm not a big fan of hot-pot ... it's hard to recommend if you know how to cook, but if you are in the mood for one or have never tried it before, this is the place to go.

Makoto Japanese Restaurant5213 Rumble Street, Burnaby
Good surprise in this little neighbourhood
Submitted Sunday, December 21, 2008 - 6:32pm [Dine in]

For us, this almost qualifies as "middle-of-nowhere". We went on a snowy day so initially, we were the only table on that week night.

Place seems family run (and they are Japanese). Service is okay, no complaints. Expect "family" type service I guess!

I was pleasantly pleased to see that they put a lot of effort into decorating the place (....I would say atypical of most Chinese run places). Not super fancy, but I wouldn't be embarassed to see this in Yaletown.

Slightly disappointed to see the menu is almost "standard" Vancouver sushi type fare. I guess I was hoping for something a little more unique. The actual food more than redeemed them. Quality was very good. They also had some very inventive sushi rolls, but what pushed it over the top was the presentation and care, which is quite different than any other place in town we've seen!

Hmmm.... dilemma here. Place left me feeling quite good about them. But is there something super unique to make it worth a trip? Maybe one trip. What is less ambiguous is that there is no other place anywhere nearby that is as good. I'll give it at least a one thumb up recommendation. It's certainly not an expensive trial at any rate.

Happy Together Chinese Bistro546 West Broadway, Vancouver
Inexpensive & different food. Good new competition
Submitted Sunday, December 21, 2008 - 6:22pm [Dine in]

Personal opinion, but stupid name. Oh well, that never stopped us in our quest for good food.

Agree with the previous 2 reviewers. The place certainly looks like it is kept very clean (including the w.c.), which is a surprise for most Chinese places. No extra marks for inventive decore, but what do you expect? I guess it must be family run, I would hazard a guess it is wife out front and husband out back? Dunno, I'm just guessing. But the lady is very friendly and helpful.

Yes, you do get free soup with the meal (and quite decent, on that day it was pork bone & daikon). We also tried the pork rib rice in tin foil (oh sure, extra marks for style there! ;-), but get past the presentation, the dish is absolutely delicious. We ordered a bunch of other dishes as well and all were done very well. Not sure they were very outstanding, but on the other hand, there were many things on the menu not offered at nearby places (or any place in town). I suppose with the tough competition, that's the only way to differentiate. Serve something different than others.

This one is recommended, lots of unique eats here. Tasty and inexpensive. Worth at least one trip for sure.

Kashcool222 Pemberton Ave, North Vancouver
Only okay, probably not worth a trip
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 1:10pm [Dine in]

I had heard some decent reviews before so we decided to wander here. It was pretty empty on a Saturday night, so we had no problem getting a table. We had no issue with service (and I'm pretty certain we don't look Persian), so I'm not sure what the previous problems were. Maybe it was a one-off or they had to respond to lack of business?

Anyways, the interior is definitely showing its age. Not quite enough to stop me from eating there, but it needs some cleaning up (w.c. was pasable that night). Don't take anyone here if you want to impress them.

We weren't that impressed with the menu either. Heavy on the kebabs, and only a few other different dishes. Definitely NOT the most varied Persian menu I recall seeing. The 2nd hit was the sticker shock. They sure looked high. I will give them a pass for now because the prices in restaurants around town have gone up and to be honest, even though we ordered a platter for 2, three of us left quite full. On the other hand the damage was over $60 for 3 for just the platter plus extra salad and a couple of drinks.
Now the food, the dough was weak, really weak. The appetizers were okay, no real complaints (a yoghurt type thing and a roast eggplant dish). The main of the platter had 3 kebabs (over $45 for this, keep in mind). Koobideh was juicy and tasty, the chicken one was similar, maybe even one of the better ones I've had. The other beef one was not as big a hit with the party, though I thought it was okay.
But here's the issue, it wasn't obviously outstanding compared to what I've had before and for about half the price, I could get quite a bit more from, for example, Yaas, and that was close enough that I probably wouldn't notice a difference without a side-by-side test. And they typically go for $6-7 so ....

The service and food are pretty good, but difficult to recommend this place given the price.

Jang Mo Jib5075 Kingsway, Burnaby
Decent, dependable place for Korean munchies
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 12:59pm [Dine in]

We've been to the old place on Kingsway and the one downtown. Nice to see they re-opened up in Kingsway again.
Inside is nothing to crow about, but if you've seen their previous digs, it's a step up. Relatively clean so no real complaints, it has no pretension about being a fine diner, right?

Service? Again, no complaints. As with a lot of Korean places nowadays, you don't bother waiving the waiter/waitress over. You just press the button. Way more efficient. They did respond quickly to all of our requests and the food came relatively quickly. The waitress we had read back our order using the numbers (i.e. M7, E3, etc). Similar format to all the Pho restaurants around the continent, so if you're not used to such a system, where have you been hiding?

The food, well, the soon dae is still the best in town. The other stuff is pretty decent, no complaints but nothing mind-blowing either. The menu itself was okay, reasonable number of good standby's but nothing super unique either. Price is also middle-of-the-road for what you get.
No reason to stay away, but no strong arguments to make a trip here either. (I think the branch downtown is better).
This place is a pretty safe bet (and it's open till 1 or 2 am), but if you're willing to be a bit adventurous, there seems to be plenty of other Korean restaurants nearby.

Mitra Canteen3034 Main Street, Vancouver
Fast, efficient and decent munchies
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 12:51pm [Dine in]

This is more of a take-out place than eat-in place, so don't expect to have fancy digs to lounge around in. Nothing wrong with that as long as you know the market you're shooting for.

The service, don't expect extras, but my they are certainly very fast. You won't be waiting for long and I'd say it's a better bet here than try McD's.

Pricing is very good for the kind of place this is. Relatively inexpensive considering the quantities that you get. And the food? Quite good. I wouldn't say AMAZING, but we're pretty tough critics. We ordered the special of the day (roast lamb), which was good, but I would say it should've been cooked just a bit longer as it wasn't exactly the "falling-off-the-bone" type that I expect from this dish. Also had a veggie platter. The falafel is pretty good, but NO, it is not the best in town. That honour (so far) has to go to Golden Pita. However, that's a pretty long drive away from this place so unless you're truly a "hardcore" foody, Mitra will more than suffice.

Not sure if I would recommend this place as it doesn't really seem that outstanding to me. On the other hand, there's no other place as good in the proximity, so if you wanted this kind of food, it seems to be the place to head to. It's fresh, fast food that's inexpensive, I cannot advise staying away that's for sure!
