Vera's Burger Shack1181 Denman Street, Vancouver
Not worth the hype
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 2:34am [Dine in]

I decided to check it out after a friend was raving about her addition to these burgers. I did not find anything special about them at all. I would of been better of getting a burger from Whitespot. Tables could of used cleaning. Staff were OK.

Amorosa Pasta House7874 Edmonds St., Burnaby
Mixed food quality
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 2:28am [Dine in]

My first time there the pasta was bland and meat seemed over cooked. I went back on advice from a friend and it was much better. Servers were prompt and friendly. The dinning area can get quite cozy depending where you're seated.

Good variety of pastas with some unique creations. Decor is contemporary with very intersting posters in the bathrooms! A clean place with good service. Located on the North side of Lougheed mall parking lot.

The place for falafels!
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 2:12am [Dine in]

Great service and friendly staff. The falafels and wraps are excellent! Good size, low price, and very tasty! The "utility" tables inside usually need cleaning. This shop is part of Crystal Mall near MetroTown malls.

Good dognuts!

Good quality and variety of doughnuts and decent soup & sandwich shop too. They don't open until 8am, so don't get there too early. The staff was quite accomodating and scrambled to get the doughnuts ready for me, even though they were just opening.

Disgusting!
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 1:58am [Dine in]

Service was friendly and prompt and the little shop is decent, but their donuts are terrible! I took a dozen for a meeting and they were almost like rocks. I got comments about not buying TWO day old donuts!

Penthouse Night Club1019 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Decent meal at a club
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 1:45am [Dine in]

I was surprised to find a decent, albeit short, menu in this club. The menu was what you would expect of pub food, but the butter chicken caught my eye and I gave it a try. It was pretty good! Chicken was cut to bite size and cooked just right. Good decent size portion for $8. Ambiance was good considering it's a club atmosphere.

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House6907 Kingsway, Burnaby
Good Japanese that's NOT sushi
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 12:52am [Dine in]

Good variety of food from ramen (noodle soup), to barbeque and seafood pancake! While the barbeque skewers and edemame is good, their specialty is ramen and it shows. With many different choices of ramen, there's a type for almost everyone. Table and chairs are solid wood, but can be a little awkward to get in and out of due to their design. They have a neat wireless call system incase the place gets busy. Place seemed clean. Parking in this strip mall can be difficult in the irregular small lot.

Lao Shan Dong Homemade Noodle House4887 Kingsway, #105, Burnaby
Great Noodles!
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 12:41am [Dine in]

Homemade noodles in soup prepared just right cannot be beat! Price is unbelievably low too! Number 1 or 2 beef noodle soup is their specialty and you can't go wrong with either. There are also vegetarian options and different noodle types. The soup has a unique and a bit tangy taste. You also have a spicy option. Their dumplings also seem homemade. Appetizers are good too, but a large bowl of their noodle soup alone will fill most average people. Decor is modern, place is clean, and staff are prompt, friendly, and accommodating. I mistakenly ordered the wrong noodle soup once. I acknowledged my mistake and was going to accept it because the error was mine. The waitress insisted she correct it! *Note: This place, like many asian restaurants, has a cash/debit only policy.

What's wrong with the chicken?
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 12:24am [Dine in]

Don't ask the staff here! There seems to be a prevalent attitude from the owner/manager down to front-end staff that chicken is a second-class meat. Maybe they should try Nando's, learn to prepare and cook it better, or just remove chicken from the menu all together if they hate it so much. The last two times I was there I heard attitude and snide remarks from the staff when someone ordered chicken. Good food, even the chicken, and clean place with a blues theme.

Anton's Pasta Bar4260 E Hastings Street, Burnaby
Bring a BIG appetite!
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 12:12am [Dine in]

Honking huge portions of pasta, even for lunch! I often take leftovers home. When I go there for supper, I have to split an entree with a friend. Good selection of pastas based on different sauces (clear, cream, tomato, or specialty). I recommend the curry or pesto sauce dishes. Good steamed milk and Italian orange or lemon soda. Service has always been prompt and enthusiastic. Setting is casual and the place seems clean.

Samba Brazilian Steak House1122 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Good AYCE!
Submitted Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 11:58pm [Dine in]

A nicely decorated restaurant in the basement of their building. A live band was playing one night that added to the ambiance. I've been here twice with large groups and enjoyed their "Rodizio" all you can eat meal. They have a salad bar with decent variety of vegetables and beans. Service was prompt and attentive. The servers come around with swords of skewered barbequed meat and slice off as much as you want. There was a wide variety of meat circulating and they came by often. Only one of the many varieties of meat seemed to be overcooked and tough.

Don't go there for the ambiance
Submitted Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 11:49pm [Dine in]

I always wondered about this place. I see it fairly often as I drive by Kingsway and Broadway. I decided to give it a try. The place needs to be vacuumed, but I received very friendly and prompt service. I was leery seeing the lack of cleanliness, but was pleasantly surprised that the food was great! I had the 2 tamale combo. They were freshly steamed and tasty. The mixed vegetable salad that came with it seemed very fresh, good mix of vegetables, and had a slightly sweet dressing. Might drop in again when I'm nearby.

Samosa Garden Restaurant3502 Kingsway, Vancouver
Service? What's that?
Submitted Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 11:35pm [Dine in]

Heard all the hype on this restaurant and the awards from the local newspapers. Decent decor, clean place, food was average, but don't expect to be served. Service was practically non-existent from the time I stepped in and had to ask to be seated after they ignored me for a few minutes, to me having to go to the till to pay (NO tip at all). I was seated for a few minutes and had to ask for a menu, they didn't bother asking if I wanted a drink, and I had to ask 3 times for a refill. The staff didn't seem to want to serve me. There has only ever been two restaurants that I have not left a tip, and this one holds the distinction of being one of them. I will never be back. Highly NOT recommended if you care at all about service.
