Cafe at Mandeville4746 Marine Drive, Burnaby
Lunch Specials
Submitted Monday, June 23, 2008 - 2:41pm [Dine in]

While doing some shopping at GardenWorks Mandeville, you can't help but to walk up to the cafe area - the smells from the kitchen really draws you in. They offer a different lunch special each day and they are quite the deal! I went for their Devilled Egg sandwich combo the other day and it lasted me two meals. For only $7.15, I got 5"square sandwich on ciabatta and a bowl of rich Beef Chili. There was no way I could finish it in one sitting.

But this meal was fulfilling enough to satisfy any appetite. They also offered their hot special of the day (mac n' cheese) with a salad for only $8.

The service could be improved. I wasn't offered any smiles from any of the lunch ladies and the ordering process felt rushed. You basically pay and immediately step out of the way for the rest of the line. The food also felt a little rushed. The kitchen isn't your average fully functional type. They have industrial appliances, but I think most the food is pre-assembled. I got my sandwich combo about 2 minutes after ordering. I noticed the hot entree were in aluminum trays sitting out on a banquet table in the kitchen ready for scoop and go. Regardless, the food still tasted fresh.

The ambiance needs a little face-lift, but I can imagine how beautiful the outdoor patio would be for brunch. Unfortunately, I got my order to go, but I would probably be back for some patio brunch action some time.

One last thing to mention. I did notice some ants on the coffee carafe counter that should be addressed.

Shady Island Seafood Bar & Grill3800 Bayview Street, #112, Richmond
Great location
Submitted Friday, June 20, 2008 - 10:44am [Dine in]

My sister and in-law have been on this fish n'chips phase for a while now. So naturally, it wasn't a surprise when we ended up in Steveston. Shady Island is right on the pier and we've always seen the patio packed on sunny days, so we decided to order from the take-out window and sit outside.

I've been here few times before, but I think they were called something else because what I used to always get (salmon chowder), isn't there anymore.

This time, we had a light (meaning small, not low fat) lunch. For the 3 of us and toddler, we all shared a small cod and a large cod n' chips.

We waited and waited after ordering. It was a cold day and there weren't many people inside the restaurant and only one other table waiting outside. When we finally got our order, we noticed they only gave us 2 small tartar sauces. Small, as in the size of ketchup cups at mcDonalds. I went up to the window and asked for more. She hesitantly squirted me 2 more small cups. I stood there for a minute expecting a little more and left after realizing I wasn't getting any more.

The fish and chips were good, not great. Being in Steveston, home of fresh seafood, I guess I was expecting bigger, fresher and cheaper since the fisherman boats were right there. Why else would we drive from near Coquitlam to Richmond for same quality food?

Anyway, it wasn't until we left that I saw Pajo's (remembering great reviews on here for it). Too bad.

Szechuan Chongqing Seafood1668 West Broadway, #205, Vancouver
Still offers cheap dim sum! $2.75!
Submitted Thursday, May 29, 2008 - 6:23pm [Dine in]

A good friend took my boyfriend and I here for dim sum this past weekend - I have never been to any Chongqing before. The experience started out when we walked in. All I said to the manager was, "We have a table already." Instantly, without saying another word, he knew exactly where to lead us. He lead us to a private room off to the side to join our party. At this point, I was super impressed.

I sat down, and immediately after a traffic jam of 3 dimsum carts surrounded our table! It was dim sum overload! All the ladies were super kind while they showed us their offerings. It was like a personal shopping experience - I sat, and they came to me with everything!

Food was great and service was excellent! My favorites are the sticky rice, "ham siu kwok", szechaun calamari, vegetarian dumplings, and the table favorite: "fire ball" which was a kind of shrimp dumpling rolled in fried bean curd shreds.

This is a great place to go for still cheap dim sum. Be sure to try the "fire ball".

Bellagio's Gelato3075 Main, Vancouver
Love those take-out containers!
Submitted Thursday, May 29, 2008 - 6:16pm [Dine in]

I hate going to people's homes empty-handed, so while I racked my brain on what I should get, I remembered this gelato place while shopping on Main once.

Bonus that there is free parking in the back - I stopped and walked in. It's always so hard to make a decision when there is so much to choose from. I went to pre-pay for my gelato and chose the large take-out container which allowed me 3 flavors. After walking round and around the gelatos about 5 times, I finally made my choice: Baci, Mint-chocolate, and Coffee Crunch.

They whip out this styrofoam container with 3 separate compartments - Brilliant!! The large was $16, but with that nifty container that could be reused, it was worth it!

I tried 2 of the 3 flavors and thought it was pretty darn good. I'd recommend it for that hot summer day. But remember, they only take cash!

An okay choice for dim sum
Submitted Thursday, May 29, 2008 - 6:04pm [Dine in]

I came here with some friends on the weekend and wasn't blown away. The menu features a large selection of both regular dim sum items as well as chef's specials. No carts here, you select your items from the double-sided menu sheet and they bring you the goods.
I liked the sticky rice in lotus leaf here. Was done perfectly - rice wasn't too mushy nor hard. The egg tarts are also must-mentions. It's a nice flan-type custard and not the thick eggy custard kind.

Service was iffy. Our table filled up quickly with dishes and when there wasn't room, the lady just stood there and said, "No room!" and waited until 'WE' shuffled the dishes around to accomodate what she was bringing. A little too much attitude for my liking.

Frankie G's Boilerhouse Pub305 Ewen Avenue, New Westminster
In the slums
Submitted Wednesday, May 28, 2008 - 10:51am [Dine in]

For some strange reason, I always thought Frankie G's was closer to Walmart. I was wrong. I came here with some coworkers last week for lunch, and had to drive past the slums of .
Yes the area is slowly developing, but it still felt like such a shady area. I agree with the previous reviewer, this pub is out of the way as there is nothing else close by. However, on the plus side, if you're suffering from major traffic jams on the Queensborough, it is a great place to stop and wait for the jam to pass. They have great specials from 4-7pm for that reason.

All the entrees come with choice of soup, salad or fries. I had salad with my butter chicken panini sandwich. The side salad was quite large and my "half" order of panini was large enough to satisfy anyone. The butter chicken had a nice kick to it. Very tasty.

Again I have to agree with the pop re-fill comment. This pub does not offer free refills. Instead, they will ask you, "Would you like more pop?" To me, this is a trick question - they should definitely tell you if the refill is not free. What pub charges over $2 for pop and doesn't offer free refills??

The ambiance was neat, a lot of old pics from the past and some old locomotive decor. The restaurant has a cabin/barn look to it and most the chairs are comfy. Washrooms were okay, but it was hard to open/close the stall doors without your legs brushing against the toilets.

India's Flavour88 West Pender, Unit 2013, Vancouver
Movie Grub
Submitted Tuesday, May 27, 2008 - 4:47pm [Dine in]

Whenever I'm at Tinseltown for a movie, I always stop by India's Flavour for some butter chicken. I've been coming here for my quick butter chicken fix for years. However, times have changed, and their chicken pieces have decreased. On my last visit here, I've noticed a substantial cut-back on the chicken as well as the size of the naan. The naan used to be folded in quarters to fit the tray! Now, it's almost half the size, but at least it's still super fresh. And the butter chicken is still very tasty.

I agree with Chasiubow - service has always been friendly and appreciative.

It really was loose tea
Submitted Tuesday, May 27, 2008 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

I came here before a comedy night a couple weeks ago, but unfortunately, I did not have what they're famous for - chocolate.
I ordered a roiboos tea and a tequila truffle for my boyfriend. His report on the truffle was that it was good, but no distinct tequila flavor.
My tea was good. Very flavorful - enough so that I did not need any sugar. The tea came in a bodum with steamed milk. However, there wasn't any additional filter and with the leaves of roiboos being so fine, there were tons of floaties in my cup. So much that I had to re-evaluate the purpose of a strainer.

The place is small, but very clean. I do have to question how a party would be able to enjoy a fondue here though. There's only a few small tables. I guess it's better for couples, not groups.

Service was friendly, but after paying for my tea and truffle, I noticed on the menu that there was a feature special: buy a drink and get a discounted truffle. I was charged the full amount for both. It's a minor detail, but if you're going to put it on special, the customer shouldn't have to point it out.

I may be back to try the fondue since I am a sucker for choco fondue, but their prices are pretty high and parking is not so easy to come by, I may have to leave it until I'm already in the neighbourhood. I wouldn't purposely go back.

Iguana's Beach Grill14985 Marine Drive, White Rock
Food did not make up for long wait
Submitted Tuesday, May 27, 2008 - 12:54pm [Dine in]

Eventhough there were still a few choices for brunch pretty late in the day, we ended up at Iguana's for two reasons:
- They weren't as busy as the other places (what we thought meant in and out in no time)
- This wasn't a pub-style eatery (an infant and toddler in our party).

We looked at their brunch menu posted outside their doors and thought it was a good choice (we were craving breakfast food). Walked in to a less than half-full restaurant and picked our table. Menus were plopped down and then we noticed there were no brunch items. We inquired about it, and they said they had just stopped brunch service, but would ask the chef if he could still whip some up. I thought that was a nice gesture. Unfortunately, she walked in the kitchen and immediately came back out and said, "No can do." I had to question whether or not she really did ask the chef. It wasn't like we were there an hour after they stopped brunch, it was literally within 5 minutes. So no big deal - we ordered off the regular lunch menu: a quesidilla, a burger, and a shrimp sandwich.

For three items that are pretty standard and basic assembly, it took forever for our meal to reach us. We waited, and waited, and waited for over half an hour to 45 mins. Normally, this isn't so hard to bare, but with 2 small children, the seconds can seem like minutes.

With each plate of food passing us, we could only dream it would be ours. When we finally got our food, it was only "okay". Nothing out of the ordinally and especially not worth the huge wait time. We just couldn't believe that such simple menu items took that long when there were only about 6 other tables occupied.

There are many other choices on the strip to enjoy - I would skip this one.

14981 Fusion Cuisine14981 Marine Drive, White Rock
Submitted Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 5:08pm [Dine in]

Finally! Asian-fusion that is actually tasty! After haveing been rejected for a late-dinner at the Boathouse, we took a short walk over to 14981. It did not disappoint!
It was already about 10:30pm on Sat night, and we asked a server at the door what time they stop serving food. We got a response, "Very Late". Worked for us!
We were seated in the back section by ourselves (a party of 7). Two couples in our party ordered the tasting menu for 2. Considering the amount of food and the quality, it was a good deal at $60 - 5-course tapas for 2 and 2 desserts.

I enjoyed my Wor Tee appie. Very lean chicken meat and scallion fried gyoza served with a light spinach salad. The molten lava cake with ice cream was to die for - the best I've ever had.

The presentation with all the dishes were VERY pretty. Service was friendly. Only one thing weirded me out. Near the end of the night, the servers walked around the restaurant with flash-lights to do some cleaning. Good on them for making sure the restaurant was clean, but it was really weird when beams of light hit our eyes. Made me feel like I was in a theatre being shown my seat.

I do agree with a previous post about the wait time between courses. But I would definitely recommend 14981 as a tasty choice on the strip.

Honey Doughnuts and Goodies4373 Gallant Ave, North Vancouver
Good choice for breakfast
Submitted Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 4:51pm [Dine in]

It was my first ever visit to Deep Cove this past long weekend, and I tried hard to remember some good reviews on Deep Cove eateries. Three came to mind: Arms Reach Bistro, Deep Cove Pizza, and Honey Doughnuts.

Arms Reach looked wonderful, but upon inquiring, there was an "at-least" 30 mins wait. Walked over to Deep Cove Pizza to find a chest-high counter with no pizza by-the-slice visible. Wasn't sure if it was only whole pies or not, so I walked over to Honey.

There was a huge line-up, but the place was pretty big with the eating area spilling out to next door.
I got in line and ordered an egg muffin (like egg mcmuffin, minus the mc) and an iced mocha. The cashier looked at me with a death glare and said, "no ice". I didn't quite hear her and said, "excuse me?". She said really loudly, "NO-ICE!!"
Not wanting hot coffee on a scorcher of a day, I just opted for soda. I was paying when I realized I forgot to mention my order was "to go". If looks could kill, I would have died right there. She snatched my "number 13" flagger from my fingers and scribbled hard on the order paper and gave me my receipt.

While waiting quietly in the corner, I noticed her mood swings from customer to customer. She was pretty friendly and talkative to the Deep Cove locals, but was really cold to the touristy types. Especially those who didn't speak English very well.

Shame about the service, because the food was quite good. My egg muffin had really nice sliced ham (quality better than deli slice) and green onions with the cheese sauce. It was a really good breakfast sandwich at a good price too.
Unfortunately, I would probably only go back (if in the area again) if that particular cashier was not working.

Lu Lu Cafe501B North Road, Coquitlam
Good Shanghai in Coquitlam
Submitted Wednesday, May 14, 2008 - 4:43pm [Dine in]

My sister brought me here to try out their Shanghai dimsum. It wasn't the best - but pretty darn good for Shanghai fare in Coquitlam. They have an extensive menu ranging from Shanghai to traditional chinese, to HK cafe mini set meals. Surely, there's something to please everyone - plus, they also have bubble tea!

We shared the xiao long buns, green onion pancake, and hot and sour noodle soup. All tasty, but my major complaint was that the xiao long buns had to be carefully peeled away from the bamboo steamer. More than half of them ripped and wasted the "soup" away which is the best part. Green onion pancake could use more green onion. My sister's red bean cooler tasted "off". Kinda sour and not satisfying.

Easily to find location, but if you're going to it from the other side, you need to take detour to get to it. Free parking in front, but shared with a popular sushi joint.

Ambiance was good - chairs looked uncomfortable, but strangely were cozy and comfy. I found the restaurant quite chilly.

Service was good for most-part. Near the end, it took forever to get the server's attention to get the bill and process payment.

Good BBQ (chinese)
Submitted Wednesday, May 14, 2008 - 4:26pm [Dine in]

After all the glowing reviews, especially about their roast pork, my sister and I had to try it out for ourselves. We walk in at about 4pm and there was a line-up, I guess for take-home BBQ. I grabbed a seat while my sister lined up. The owner(?) noticed me looking for a seat and quickly swept in and said that there was no need to line-up - just take a seat and they will do everything.
It's was very strange for me to receive such great service in a chinese eatery.

We quickly got utensils and tea, we ordered a 2-item BBQ with rice each (mine with lemon tea and my sister's with daily soup). Within minutes, our food was at the table. We agree with other reviewers about the cackling - it was most enjoyable. However, mine came extra fatty and we both found it to be quite salty. Still, nonetheless, very tasty. BBQ pork was lean and tender.

Portions were large - tons of meat. 3 people could share 2 plates and be full.

Service, as mentioned, is quite different than usual. Both people we encountered were extremely friendly. The gentlemen made sure to make conversations with everyone to make them feel welcomed.

Ambiance: the eatery is very small, but tables are far enough apart that you wouldn't feel cramped. My only complaint is their excessive use of styrofoam. Styro cups, stryo plates, styro take out containers. Using them solely for take-out is acceptable, but when you're eating in, and they already have ceramic soup bowls and plates for vegetables, I'd prefer it if they spared a little more and offer eat-in meals on real plates too. But then again, because the place is so small, maybe they don't have dishwasher?

Manzano Europa Bakery4820 Kingsway, #214, Burnaby
Great little bake shop
Submitted Tuesday, May 13, 2008 - 11:11am [Dine in]

Manzano is a great little bake shop for picking up little treats during your shopping excursion at Metrotown. Whether you're stopping in for a grab and go or a sit-down bun and coffee, it's perfect.

They have a huge variety of different baked goods. Their chocolate chunk cookie is sinfully delicious. The apple cinnamon bun with coffee is an excellent combination. The olive bread is a little on the hard side and could use more olives, but still tasty.

I recently bought a 6" chocolate cheesecake which did not look like your average chocolate cheesecake - light cream topping with sliced almond sides. The combination of almonds and chocolate cheesecake filling was wonderful. Very well priced at under $17.

I also got a challah loaf to make some french toast - it was the best french toast ever.

Extended Lunch Break
Submitted Monday, May 12, 2008 - 4:21pm [Dine in]

During it's first week of opening, one would expect some hiccups, but a 2-hr lunch break is a little over the top.

Half our party of 7 got there on Friday at 11:30. They said they don't take reservations yet, so luckily, we waited only a couple mins for a table (when the other half came, there was already an hour's wait). We ordered some drinks, then a yam fries appie. One of us ordered a certain beer and turned out, that tap needed fixing, so they gave him half a glass of another to tie him over. A manager came over and said the beer he requested was out and asked for alternative.
We waited and when the rest of our group came, we all ordered our lunches. We waited, waited, waited...we then reminded one of our 2 servers about the appie. Instead of a sincere apology, she laughed it off and said, "Well, you'll have to order more drinks then, huh?!" After finishing the appie, we waited some more to the point where a group of 7 ran out of things to say. Even a server made a comment about how quiet we were and that we must have been work colleagues (what does that mean, btw?).

The decor was very retro. Very new 80's. It's very nice and different. There were surprisingly tons of staff on the floor. About 6 up at the front, over 20 in the kitchen, about 6 managers on the floor, and more than enough servers.

The food was good, except my calamari sandwich was overpowered by the curry sauce it came with. Very Rob Feenie-inspired, but didn't really hit the spot. Prices were okay, lunch will run about $15 person.
At the end, they did take a burger off the menu for the beer-mishap.

Since it was only their first week, I'd give them the benefit of doubt. I'd maybe wait a few more months before returning though.

Wilbur & Sabastians Bistro2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Coquitlam
Worth the drive
Submitted Monday, May 12, 2008 - 12:12pm [Dine in]

Looking for a nice restaurant to eat at in Coquitlam is not very easy. I'm so thankful for this website. I found W&S on here, but without a website to check out, I relied only on the reviews posted here. I called the night before and asked to reserve a table. They told me they don't reserve for under 6 people (we were party of 4), but to call about 15 mins before going and they prepare a seat for us. I thought this was kinda strange - isn't that the same as reservations?? Anyway, no problem.

Called 20 minutes before going the next day, and they said they couldn't hold a table because they were very busy. But they could take us in 30 minutes. Again, I was a bit confused with their time comments. Got there and understood why they would be busy. It is a very cute little bistro in a fairly new plaza that seated only about 8-10 tables. However, only half of them were occupied when we got there. The layout is different - the entrance is right in the middle of the split between kitchen and dining area, so when you walk in, not only can you see what's going on in the kitchen, you smell everything too!

We were seated near the window and could catch some activities going on in the kitchen. This made for an unfortunate experience for one my friends at our table. She kept getting looks from one of the cooks - not-so-friendly ones. That was the only unfortunate part of our evening.

All of our dishes we ordered were great (with the exception of one "ok" salad). Everything was of excellent value also. The four of us shared 3 appies, an entree each and some drinks at only $66!

Our server was very nice. We brought in a cake for the birthday girl and they didn't charge a cutting fee. The service overall was wonderful except for the cook that gave the stinkeye.

Eventhough we brought desserts, we still couldn't help eyeing the wonderful sweets display by the kitchen. They were all made from scratch and each one looked incredible.
Overall, a very nice little bistro and definitely worth the drive there. I'll be sure to return soon to try out their desserts!

If you're stuck in a rut on what to have for lunch, you should give this place a try. It's right on the corner of Boundary and Kingsway, very easy to get to and there's usually plenty of parking.

Euro Deli offers a huge variety of sandwiches with specials like England-Big Ben, Spain-Matador, Italian-Coliseum and so on. Apart from deli sandwiches, they also offer donair and well as little market items like European candies and drinks.

I ordered the Greek Hercules Plate. For $6.99, I got greek salad, pita, rice and donair chicken topped with tzatziki and hot sauce. Made me the envy of the office lunchroom and left me satisfyingly full.

Service was quick, efficient and friendly. The whole restaurant was bright and looked really clean.

I'd definitely return (quite soon) for some anything!

Cafe Runway5000 Miller Road, Richmond
Cafeteria food w/o airport prices
Submitted Thursday, May 8, 2008 - 11:10am [Dine in]

I was about half an hour early for picking up my sister from the airport, so I was looking for a place to sit and relax. Since I was already on the road to the airport, there weren't very many shops around. Luckily I spotted Cafe Runway (huge awning) and was able to turn around at the gas station.
Being after 4pm, I didn't expect it to be busy (and it wasn't). I would only assume that they probably cater more to the lunch crowd of local businesses. I entered into a huge cafeteria. The kitchen and counters were all the way in the back and I felt a little awkward walking so far while the owner made eye contact my entire way there.

It was a little overwhelming trying to make a decision while he waited. I had to quickly absorb the large menu while at the same time looking at the counters to see what ready-made items were available. I finally decided on a simple ham and swiss sandwich.

I grabbed a seat in the well-lit dining area which kind of reminded me of a hospital cafeteria. Huge seating section that was well-spaced and old 80's chairs and tables. I sat and read the paper for about 2 minutes until a lady said my order was up.

Sandwich was good, but nothing spectacular. Prices were good. Service was good - the only thing was that while I was eating, the lady who made my sandwich, sat at the table behind me (out of all the other empty tables around) and starting chatting on the phone. Was kinda distracting me from enjoying the paper.

Overall, a good pitstop before hitting the high prices of the airport fare.

Caffe Artigiano4359 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Quite Excited!
Submitted Wednesday, May 7, 2008 - 11:52am [Dine in]

I was super excited when I first saw that Cafe Artigiano was "Coming Soon" to Burnaby! Finally!

I stopped by the other night and was pleasantly surprised at the massiveness of the cafe! It's so roomy - a true benefit of opening in Burnaby instead of downtown. I'm used to the cramped spaces at some of the other locations and being able to breathe w/o bumping into people while in line to both order and pick-up was a nice change.
However, being in such a large space, it does loose some of that cozy charm.

All the staff was friendly. One of the baristas said "Hi" and smiled while I was waiting for my drink. Two little children accidentally ran behind the counter and instead of freakin' out, she jokingly said, "Look, we've got some help! Be careful though, it's dangerous back here."

My only complaint is that the iced caramel macchiato I ordered wasn't what I was used to. Instead of caramel, they used chocolate syrup. I don't know if it was a mistake or not. Nonetheless, it was absolutely delicious, but I wouldn't call it a "caramel" macchiato.

Went with high expectations - not a good idea.
Submitted Wednesday, May 7, 2008 - 11:17am [Dine in]

From reading the reviews on here, I went with pretty high expectations. What I got was half and half.

The food itself was pretty good. Love their corn tortillas, very nice. tacos were reported as yummy. I ordered the carne enchilada(?) which was tasty, but came with fat untrimmed.
A huge plus was the hot sauce bar. Lots of choices from avocado to green tomato.

The ambiance was bright and cheery, but nothing special. The music was a little bit loud though.

Service was what turned me off from probably coming back. We sat down and everyone else got chips to sample the salsas. No chips for us. No biggie. Then after we ordered our meals, my boyfriend ordered 2 pineapple jarritos. The server said they don't have pineapple, only strawberry, mango and guava. Boyfriend didn't want those, so he asked for a ginger-ale and I asked for strawberry jarrito. We got a blank stare for a second, then she walked away.
We got the tacos and were waiting for drinks before diving into the hot salsas. We kindly reminded the server and again a blank stare before walking away. Another 5-10 minutes passed and I got my meal and no drinks. We called over another server and asked for our drinks. She grabbed our bill and said no drinks were ordered. She asked what we would like and then said that they were out of strawberry jarrito and they don't even serve pop. At this point, we were dumbfounded and just asked for 2 waters.
We were surprised nonetheless.

Tacos were well-priced, but the experience left a sour taste in my mouth and I probably will not return. At least not soon.
