Okay, then DIMSUM list in the GVRD may require iPOD gigabytes to keep track of.

Ask about their specialties. Ask about the descriptions on the menu. Very friendly and may make suggestions to make it all very good for you. A la carte orders are welcomed and quick. Quality really excels for this type of food.

Please give these guys a try and you'll be back.

Vera's Burger Shack1935 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver
King of QUEENS!
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

As recommended by a friend, a visit was paid on the rave reviews.

Immediately greeted by the ladies behind the counter, my wife and kids are instantly at ease. That set the tone for the evening. You can almost tell when the crew like the place they work at. Al least this was the sense I picked-up on.

SERVICE: Fast, friendly and patient. Realising my daughter's first visit, our order-taker waited patiently and answered each question with the long version.

FOOD: Well, as mentioned I had high expectations. In one word, MET! To concisely define QUALITY as 'conformance to requirement', this was the basis of my expectations met. I have to add, if you like fries (who doesn't?), brace yourself. It could be the ball-and-chain holding them back in the Burger race. The 'Chilli Fries' (by which I have been spoiled by "TOMMY's", the Los Angeles standard-bearer for anything you can put Chilli on) is less than stellar. The chilli is supposed to marry nicely with the fries. This didn't happen here. Nevertheless, the beef burgers ar worth repeat visits.

AMBIANCE: It is what it is, a casual burger joint with roadhouse style picnic table seating. You may have to share a table with other patrons which may be uncomfortable for some. If it is, choose your timing wisely.

The friendly demeanor of the ladies behind the counter, QUEENS of the burger kingdom!

Run-of-the Mill or Bonafide Stand-out?

Here's the deal: I'm a guy. I'm a guy who appreciates attractive women. And guess what? They have attractive [female] servers. The only reason I'm bringing this up is to "leave that topic at the door"!

FOOD: As in all the CC's I've been to: a broad-themed menu with excellent value.

SERVICE: I've always been respectful of how organizations choose to run their business. As you may already know, they have a bar area and a dining area. Typically, I don't expect to be seated in the dining area if my golf foursome is there for mainly drinks at the 'sports-bar'-like area. I was impressed when I we were seated in the dining area, even after advising the hostess of our purpose for the visit. She had recognized that the dining area had open table and insisted it was OKAY for us to stay there. I was impressed (especially on a Friday night).

AMBIANCE: Very current in styling and appointments, very clean and tidy. Music volume is just right: never too-loud!

The young manager there, MATT (as his name-plate displays), is sevice-extraordinaire. Young but definitely beyond his years. He introduced himself after the hostess shared with him our slight discomfort in the Dining area. He closed our brief introduction with "in this business, you can't have an off-night!" This kid can teach a few veterans.

The BURGER Surprise!
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 7:33pm [Dine in]

Yes, this is a review for a restaurant and what they do best: Great Crepe's.

First, a confession. I'm a glutton for culinary bliss. So bad as to not care much about the ambiance. It's definitely a factor but not a deal-breaker. As long as the place is clean and decent, I won't fuss.

FOOD: Sure. A crepe is a crepe. I really think they wanted to exceed that cliche when they opened their doors. The choices are quite extensive and elaborate. As an addition, their burgers are worth a mention. Upon ordering they tell you it will take 15-20 mins. It's made to order from a scratch prepped patty, and has always arrived juicy and flavourful. It wasn't a fluke: I expected and got the same quality all other times. Not $15, not $10, but $6.60(fries incl).

SERVICE: The over-staffed location assures constant, meaningful attention. And YES, they take reservations. I like a team that considers my young kids for the best possible seating without being coaxed.

AMBIANCE: The place is a bit dark for my taste and impresses one with a snug feel. Have a seat a get surprised. Washrooms are clean and tidy.

OVERALL: For meals or deserts on a decent budget, it's a NO-Brainer. Must be the best burgers in town(!). Downside? Well, parking in the weekdays are only a tad better than weekends. But rest assured, patience is deliciously rewarded.

Tokyo Ichiban3380 Lansdowne Rd, #170, Richmond
Classic Ichiban
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 7:08pm [Dine in]

My wife and I are avid Japanese food patrons (4-8/month). Since moving to BC we have looked high and low for a restaurant to come back to.

Tokyo Ichiban, in our opinion, rates pretty high. Clearly, the two previous reviews reflect a bitter minority. I have returned here many times (even while still finding others) without disappointment.

SERVICE: Bar none. We have tried both AYCE and a La Carte menus. I have always been treated the same respectfull way. People must like 'em: same staff for as long as I can remember; always a line-up to be seated.

FOOD: As in most AYCE joints, the quality is what you can always expect, ANYWHERE. However, much can be said for the a la Carte menu. Huge difference. Temaki, Sushi, sashimi, beef tatake and hot-foods are just a few fantastic examples.

AMBIANCE: admittedly, a bit dated -- but hey, I've seen nice appointed places without food to match. The decor here underpromises, but over-delivers.

OVERALL: a great bang-for-$$ outfit. (The repeat line-ups can't all be wrong).
