Mmmmm, will definitely return!
Submitted Friday, August 26, 2005 - 1:12pm [Dine in]

Must try everything on the menu! Didn't get the chance to try the soups and stews and sandwiches for that matter. Had the waffle weekend brunch special. Yummy! One of the best waffles I've ever had. Easily washed away my previous experiences at IHOP (super slow service and standard food, awfully frozen/jammy fruit toppings at IHOP EVERYTIME I forget and end up going back to much of the same). The caramelized apples were so delicious used as topping for the perfectly crisp and warm waffles! Along with the strawberries and banana and ice cream! Was so perfect, didn't even need to add any syrup! Was too stuffed to fit in dessert. Bottomless iced tea or coffee at $2.25. Delicious! The female staff are great, friendly... the bald one, I assume he's the floor manager, perhaps? Well, he gives off a feeling of cold and curt, and not a very fun, happy person to be around. If he was the only server there, I might very well have decided to never return in spite of the entire menu of items I still want to try!

Quick bite to eat.

Go for the noodles, not for the sushi. Good to go for a quick bite before rushing off to the theatre or a meet up somewhere downtown. Friendly service.

Sala Thai888 Burrard, #102, Vancouver
Absolutely NEVER to return!
Submitted Friday, August 26, 2005 - 12:56pm [Dine in]

Waitresses are unenthusiastic--either ignore you or brush you off to another which usually defaults to the manager. So we realized he's the one to order from--even throws in some smiles. Pleasant enough. The women were there just for grunge work. From the satay to garlic beef, they were served cold and beef-jerky-dry. The pork satay was also served luke warm at best but everything else was near perfect. Here's my quarrel. Firstly, since one order of satay only has 4 servings, I ordered 2 of them. The options were beef/chicken/pork. The manager seemed strangely happy to inform me in a very curt "Nope. Can't do that." in response to my request for combining the 3 meats in the 2 orders (8 sticks total). Alright, I accepted that gracefully. Just had the beef and pork. Later, come time for dessert, I asked if they wouldn't mind swapping out the white sticky rice for the black one . I find that white sticky rice is too sweet even with it usually salted a bit & too heavy, not as good in complimenting the sweet mango. "No. Can't do that." I thought I heard wrong since he held a smile, so I repeated. All I got was again a VERY proud "Nope. Can't do that." He favourite phrase, obvious by now. It was originally an order for 2 mango desserts with sticky rice. I will never return here. Chili House/Club down by the waterfront on Beach Avenue, near C's, is a WHOLE lot better in variety offered, WHOLE steamed fish, plenty more specialty cocktails virgin and spiked to choose from. Though they seem to find it strange, but they're at least HAPPY to accomodate your requests. I'd understand if they don't have any black sticky rice in their kitchen. I never mind being charged extra for the changes if needs be. Places like Chao Praya actually serve that mango dish with BOTH black & white yinyang-style to their guests. Oooo, I hate that smirk of his. I'm sure he was laughing when they slapped on the 15% gratuity for large parties onto the bill so he has secured the tip.

Tojo's Restaurant1133 W Broadway, Vancouver
Superb! Never disappointing!
Submitted Friday, August 26, 2005 - 11:58am [Dine in]

Creamy fresh fish. Toro is melt-in-your mouth juicy! Perfect temperature for the raw fish. Always fresh, except maybe the occassional prawn that doesn't seem AS fresh or as sweet as it should be. Service is flawless, friendly, perfect! Deserving of every last bit of a generous tip! They make the bluefin tuna worth every penny! Or tens of dollars, rather... From food to service, I have no quarrel, except that hopefully, there will be more cooked creations I would lovvvve to try that's prepared by Tojo and his staff. But for the raw variety, this is the best! For more cooked/raw variety, go for the chef creation in the higher price range of the options given.

Gyoza King1508 Robson Street, Vancouver
A little cozy but lively...
Submitted Friday, August 26, 2005 - 11:51am [Dine in]

Though I feel it's been way overrated in what I heard about Gyoza King prior to my visit to the place. Their gyoza, I'm assuming is the signature dish, was a bit on the dry side for me. Not very tasty, and definitely not at all juicy, the way I like them. What is good about it is the thin batter used--the way I like them--nice and crispy. As a matter of fact, most everything else I've tried actually tastes better than the gyoza by far. Very busy, very crowded, but very lively. Longish waits and you are truly elbow to elbow with the next table or the person squeezed next to you on the bar.

Guu Original838 Thurlow St, Vancouver
My favourite Japanese tapas location!
Submitted Friday, August 26, 2005 - 11:45am [Dine in]

Although it seems the staff previous to the current were more skillful in the setting of the flavours, it's still delicious. Just not AS perfect as it was before. Do they rotate the kitchen staff and the waitresses between their 3 locations? Or maybe just a changeover in staff... I liked the previous bunch that seemed to have been there forever. However, it's still good; inexpensive and yet very tasty. You can eat a lot of variety and still not be gorged come time to pay the bill. This is their best location! The gastown one is more fancy in menu and display, but only comes 2nd to this one. I'd have to say the Guu with Garlic on Robson comes 3rd.
