Pink Pearl1132 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Great place for dim sum!
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 6:47pm [Dine in]

This is one of the best dim sum places in Vancouver. There's tons of room inside and lots of free parking. But even still, get there early! After 11am on the weekends, it tends to fill up really fast. You also have to be patient for certain items, it's a massive place inside and it can sometimes take a while for certain dumplings to pass by your table! The dim sum fare is pretty standard, and always really good. I've also been there for dinner several times, the food has always been great.

Cramped, but good.
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 6:39pm [Dine in]

The menu had good variety, the service was excellent, and the food was very good. The cob salad was filled with all sorts of yummy items and the pulled pork sandwich was absolutely delish. The only thing that I would complain about is the cramped interior--it's one of those places where there are just too many tables jammed in there.

Cats Socialhouse1540 Old Bridge Street, Vancouver
Good restaurant at Granville Island
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 6:32pm [Dine in]

I've been to the Cat's Meow a number of times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and have always been quite pleased. The ambiance is nice, but it can be cold in winter if you are seated anywhere near the door. Plus the large screen tvs take things down a notch or two in my view, but all in all it's a nice, comfortable place with good food.

Cannery Seafood House, The2205 Commissioner Street, Vancouver
Deserves its rating as one of the best in Vancouver.

Since the port changed, it's a little more complicated to get in, but well worth pushing the button and telling the security guard you're going the The Cannery.

I took my mom for her birthday and they had her name printed on the menu and hooked a bright and festive helium balloon on her chair. Unexpected, but appreciated was the birthday discount! We had a thoroughly lovely evening. The food was great, the service impeccable, and the view lovely. Definitely a great place for a special dinner.

Bombay Bhel4266 Hastings St., Burnaby
Great Indian on Hastings
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 6:22pm [Dine in]

A few doors down from Anton's Pasta on Hastings, sits this lovely restaurant and while the food is great and the service prompt and friendly...there's never any annoying line ups!

I've tried numerous dishes and have found them all very pleasant.

The only thing to note is that they are closed on Mondays!

Amorosa Pasta House7874 Edmonds St., Burnaby
Good pasta on Edmonds
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

The hot ceasar salad was a bit odd and not really my thing (it's a regular ceasar salad but with spicy chicken stirfry ontop), but the pasta dishes I tried have all been tasty.

It gets cold when you sit near the door in winter and some areas are quite cramped, but the service is pretty good. All in all I would recommend it. But be warned that it can get pretty busy (especially Friday and Saturday nights) so it's best to either get there early or make a reservation.

Solid, cheap food.
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 6:10pm [Dine in]

Regulars don't want others to find out about this place (I know, because I heard one patron telling another to stop telling people about it, because it would start getting too busy.)

It's a small diner style place that looks like it could use a good cleaning and a coat of paint. But when you get past that, lots of stuff on the menu is good and cheap. I give the entrees a pass--I had what was supposed to be pork tenderloin, but it was pounded flat, breaded and fried and was rather tasteless. It was accompanied by mashed from a box, thick brown gravy, steamed veg that had seen better days, and grill toasted bun. The bun was the best part.

The Chinese food, burgers, and sandwiches are where it's at!

Burgers Etc. BBQ House4091 Hastings St., Burnaby
Forget the burger, go for the barbecue!
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 5:50pm [Dine in]

I've now been to this restaurant 6 or 7 times. At first, I would say that I was only just satisfied with the food, but now that I've discovered what's the best on the menu, I'm a definite fan and will definitely be going back often.

The first time I went here, I had the burger. According to some poll, the burger had been rated number 1 in the Vancouver area. I tried it and found the burger fresh and pleasant, but, quite frankly, a bit bland. The next trip, I had the pulled pork sandwich, which was very good and definitely had more zing than the burger, but still nothing to stop traffic. On my fourth visit, I tried the barbecue platter where you could choose 2 meats and two sides.

Now that had zing! The barbecue chicken, the ribs, and the pulled pork are all excellent. The sides are good too. The fries plain fries are great. Some people seem to love the special fries with beans, cheese, and bbq sauce, but they're not for me. One noteworthy thing is also the green salad-whether you get it as a side or as a dish on it's own, it's a good size and contains a nice variety of salad fixings (ie. it's not iceburg lettuce with a bit of carrot.)

So, give the burger a pass and head for straight for the bbq!

Fish On Rice4361 Kingsway, #201, Burnaby
So so sushi
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 5:35pm [Dine in]

After hearing this place recommended rather highly several times, a friend and I decided to take in the all you can eat sushi late one afternoon--taking advantage of their 4:30-6:30pm happy hour. I found the service poor, but then I've sort of come to expect that from a sushi place and I can put up with it quite easily if the food is really good.

There was nothing wrong with the sushi or any of the other items we ordered, but neither was there anything the least bit extraordinary about it. The decor was pretty typical.

Considering it was the happy hour and we were only paying $12.95, it was worth it, but I wouldn't go for the regularly priced all you can eat.
