Pho Tan Vietnamese Restaurant4598 Main Street, Vancouver
Good honest Vietnamese cuisine.
Submitted Sunday, March 26, 2006 - 2:46am [Dine in]

Always reliable, always friendly, and consistently tasty. From when they were located closer to King Edward on Main St. doors down from The Grind, to when they passed the lease on to the current pho restauranteur that relocated from Cambie, they've always provided a reliable meal and friendly, enthusiastic service. This is one of the few pho places I'd completely trust the freshness and integrity of the ingredients & staff. They seem to take great pride & passion in their creations. Now, with the newer, better location (still awaiting their liquor license and interac/cc machines to be delivered), they have managed to impress me more than before. The food seems to have found & settled on an identity it wants to keep as has the new menu along with added kitchen staff. The self renovations seem to be mostly complete, though still in need of some fine-tuning.

I sincerely hope this one is here to stay so that I would not have to venture over to Richmond's Pho Lan all the time when I'm in need of a quick pho fix and then some. Though their a la carte dishes can't quite compare to that of Phnomh Pehn's, but I definitely prefer their location over to venturing out into Chinatown for a meal (missed the Broadway location :( ).

Pinpin Restaurant6113 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Consistently delicious!
Submitted Saturday, March 25, 2006 - 2:37am [Dine in]

They've only just opened earlier this year and wow! Packed full nearly every evening (they're closed Mondays as I've hit the door twice on such a day thinking I'd sit in to eat) they are packed full (very small place)! There are sometimes a table or two free for a while, but they tend to get filled fast by walk-ins. Not sure if they take reservations.

I always try to order something different on the menu between eating in & ordering for pickup. Such unbelievably great value, too. Haven't tried the Chinese dishes they offer that are of the sweet & sour variety & pork buns, wonton, etc.. While it seems to be run mainly by Filipinos, I'm not sure how the Chinese part fits in. The appetizers range from a measely $1.95-$6.95. Their entrees average out to be $7 (some a couple $'s less, some $'s more). Where else can you get a whole tilapia/milfish for 6.50-9/10.50? You usually get gauged for even an inexpensive fish like that. The vinagry citrus sauce they provide to go with certain fish dishes go so well to mask the "fishiness" of it and make it juicy sweet with a hint of sour--seems to work better than squeezing lime juice by itself! Can't honestly vouch on authenticity since I am not at all familiar with filipino cuisine, but I can definitely vouch for the flavours and the constant 90% of patrons are of Philippine origin. They have the JUICIEST BBQ chicken skewer I've had in a LONG while. You can taste the BBQ-ness of it as well as the sweet juiciness of the chicken itself. Yummy! Food preparation seems quick. Everything except the rice was served perfectly warm. I've been waiting until I got to actually sit in to eat before posting a review since they were all takeout experiences prior, and boy did they secure yet another returning patron for as long as they keep up the quality, and not to mention, value! This experience has gotten me interested in trying the different filipino offerings around town.

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House6907 Kingsway, Burnaby
Lots of ramen.
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 4:57pm [Dine in]

It may be called a "Japanese Noodle House" but most of the menu is actually Korean cuisine. The ramen is the prepackaged with preservatives variety as the taste suggests. It's decently portioned, more meat, etc, than you'd get at Kintaro's and slightly less expensive, but not as fresh.

From the meat in the Bi Bim Bap to the meat in the noodles, the beef seems to have been "treated" for having gone bad... The wrapping for the gyoza is made nicely thin and the contents are juicy and light.

I have mixed feelings about going back for more since I really do wish to try almost everything else on they have to offer, except, I'd be avoiding any of the beef dishes... which also means that one of my favourite things about Korean cuisine--the juicy well-marinated beef dishes--will have to be avoided. That's what's keeping me from going back. I can't bring myself to trying again to see if the food will be served with fresh ingredients all around.

Overall though, the service is great--friendly and warm. The room looks well-kept and clean. The booth tables by the window are slightly awkward to sit in since the height of table to seat is a little too close for comfort... one being higher than it should be, while the other being too low.

Addicted to cream cheese icing!
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 4:44pm [Dine in]

I eat it like popsicle--lick after lick. Can't get enough of it. Well, okay, the cinnamon bun I should be spreading it onto, that tastes okay... not bad... well-made, but nothing spectacular, then again, I'm not a huge cinnamon bun fan since it's usually too heavy, too much, and/or too sweet... and too much dough for me to finish a full-sized one. Love the other little bakery items, but must remember to treat them as desserts and just take them a little bit at a time. Again, can't stop thinking about the cream cheese icing! Mmmm, delicious.

Ap Gu Jung Restaurant1642 Robson St., Vancouver
Great food, great taste, solid pricing.
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 3:29pm [Dine in]

I liked how they used to be better... when they were more fusion than anything--loved the bbq rice cake skewers with hot sauce amongst other things. Haven't gotten around to going back until now, and though they still make tasty food, it's mostly a standard Korean menu that they offer.

The service is still pleasant, and the decor is the same as I remembered. The drink list is still as extensive as it can be offering the variety of flavours of soju that they do.

Though the spicy tofu soup with beef isn't as savoury as the one offered at Insadong (Coquitlam), it's still very tasty. The Bi Bim Bap is good, too. The rice they use isn't the best or maybe it's the amount of water they used, but it seems to be the fault of the natural texture of the rice itself--most noticeable in the plain rice bowl the entree dish came with but it's just because I'm being picky. I love the spicy rice cake with hot sauce & ramen. I mean, it can be served any which way, and I would usually love it. Not every Korean restaurant serves these long rice cakes this way, so I'm glad that they still offer this on their menu.

All of this did come with the usual complimentary side dishes of kimchi, sweetened potato, kelp and sprouts.

Service is friendly, room is clean and not crowded. Dishes are tasty. The wait for food is short. Definitely worth revisiting.

Mr Mikes Steakhouse & Bar2991 Lougheed Highway, #32, Coquitlam
Nothing that stands out.
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 3:10pm [Dine in]

The garden burger is good for what it is--not attempting to resemble beef with an overdose of tofu content. They have fresh light, fluffy, toasted sesame buns for the burger. Fries are decently made with skin and a clean regular change of deep-fryer oils. The beef burger patties are not very eventful for their signature burgers. It resembles the Harvey's burger patties, in taste and texture, being that it feels like eating ham/spam--too soft, almost like meat that's been processed to a level further than ground beef. The burger itself isn't at all juicy--it just depends too much on the sauce provided. Their signature burgers are easier to eat since it's served in a french baguette though halved in length/portion. Price-wise, it's relatively inexpensive, while it's there to compete with a Red Robin's across the street, Montana's at the mall, and a whole batch of chain/franchise locations nearby. The cocktail concoctions can be bordering on too watered-down... maybe that depends on the bartender of the day. They do serve various wines, beers, etc.. When they clean the tables, they should be sure to make sure they don't just sweep all the crumbs onto the seats and leave it there for the next guests to sit on.

It's not a place I'd make a point to avoid, nor is it somewhere I'd purposely revisit. I would eat there again if it was for a matter of convenience and if it's just to fill my belly rather than enjoy a meal.

Sushi House7060 Kingsway, Burnaby
Relatively fresh with good average prices.
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 2:23pm [Dine in]

For what it does, I'd have said it does it well, if it wasn't for the slow speed of service. I have yet to attempt dining in, but I will definitely make a point to order takeout more regularly from them, though the night I did do so, it was quite a wait. Maybe since it was around Valentine's or maybe because they are normally just as hectic when they're busy during meal hours. During the wait, we were kept entertained by the number of people coming in & out & the amount of orders that were mistaken or swapped, and even the rush of a customer who finally got his order to dash off leaving his debit card still slipped in the slot on the debit machine (he obviously got home and still have yet to realize he was one bank card short as there was no phone call or flustered guy coming in to claim it back). Someone's day-in-advance order of multiple California rolls were actually given to another customer who, much much later, came to return it for his own order (needed to be remade since who knows who ended up with his or whether the order was filled to begin with in the chaos of the busy night). Another couple that was there before us, they seem to have called 2hrs in advance of their pickup time and had been standing there waiting for their orders for another hour plus. For what they are, they do it well enough, minus the speed. The place is kept clean, as is the fish, though the room itself is kept to a bare minimal very common for sushi bar establishments that does more takeout orders than dine-in. A definite must for calling in to order in advance, not just for the sake of the resulting discounts, but mainly so that you might be able to avoid a long wait for your order.

Good food, but slow kitchen.
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 2:08pm [Dine in]

Friendly servers & equally as friendly and warm host/owner. The elevated platform dining area gives a more spacious feeling than the lower level, but it's all still good. Great selection of oysters though occassionally, they'd sell out on certain ones. A tad on the pricey side, but if money is of no concern, it's not bad to give it a try as they offer quite a tasty menu, only, if you're hungry, maybe choose another dining spot. Unless the speed of the kitchen staff has improved since my last visit, you are in for a lonnnnng wait for dinner (nearly an hour for us for the main course, though the appetizers took a little less time, it was still quite a wait even for that) though between the server and the owner, we were offered plenty of apologies. With the warm and abundant smiles, none of us were able to hold a grudge. Friendly service does help to raise a dining experience by many levels. It's actually been long overdue for a revisit... hopefully, the flavours have been kept consistently well.

Shanghai River Restaurant7831 Westminster Hwy., #110, Richmond
Consistently well prepared menu.
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2006 - 10:23pm [Dine in]

Whether it be for lunch/brunch/dinner, the food here is consistently well-prepared. Nothing really tastes bad, though I also can't think of any item that is exceptionally memorable. Great choice for Shanghai cuisine. Always busy, so be sure to book a table well in advance. There is almost always a crowd standing by the entrance waiting for a table. Plenty of parking inside as well as across the street at the mall. Great decor. Clean. Comfortable. You can watch through the glass window as the kitchen prepares the dumplings and noodles. Always a good choice to default to for a reliable all around tasty meal. Prices are reasonable, but not "cheap".

The food is given an "outstanding" mark because they manage to keep everything consistently satisfying, though not "exceptional." Consistency is difficult to come by especially when applied to the entire menu no matter how many times you revisit the place--that alone is deserving of a better than "solid" average grade.

The ambiance is "outstanding" only because a lot of the other establishments that offer Shanghai cuisine are not as or near being "classy" or quite all that "clean" and lean towards being more tired and clumsily kept. I've only ever experienced the positive, and none that is negative coming out of this restaurant since they first opened.

Pasta Polo2754 Barnet Hwy, Coquitlam
Great value, great taste, best homebrewed iced tea!
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2006 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

For $2.25, you get bottomless homebrewed iced tea with a wedge/slice of lemon. A perfect blend of flavours and perfectly sweetened. Have yet to find another establishment that provides iced tea that's as perfectly made as either of the Pasta Polo locations.

Service is always friendly. Always welcoming and very casual. This location is larger, brighter, and can more easily, and comfortably, accommodate larger parties than their Langley location though the ambiance is classier and cozier in Langley.

The pastas are flavourful and their sandwiches are delicious. The fritto misto (deep fried pasta rings) appetizer is a must (though the salsa doesn't go very well with it--a cream cheese or other softer/smoother dip would go better)! Inexpensive especially if you have an entertainment book coupon, but still good even without! The desserts are freshly made and heavenly.

A definite favourite and always a pleasant dining experience! Parking & entrance at the back and underground parking available as well.

Ouisi Bistro3014 Granville Street, Vancouver
Turned out worse than I expected.
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2006 - 6:50pm [Dine in]

For the longest time, I've been meaning to give their menu a try. Only just recently gotten around to doing so for a late dinner. I thought the service was adequate, though unenthusiastic, while my dining partner felt it was cold & bordering on neglect. Food preparation is relatively slow. Complimentary cornbread was decently moist, though it comes with an obviously prepackaged rectangle of unsoftened butter for a boring spread, but that's about standard for general offerings elsewhere.

The 3 course tasting menu doesn't provide value, but it does provide a less than satisfactory dining experience. The Jambalaya is just typical seafood drenched in a tomato sauce that tastes of the instant/canned variety--my dining companion actually felt it was like sauce masking cardboard, but I wouldn't go so far as to call it such. I wouldn't recommend anything that comes with their fragranted rice as neither the green nor the regular variety is any good. As a matter of fact, they offer an odd taste and is a bit too mushy resembling the instant Uncle Ben's microwave variety. The gumbo variety is awful in its heavily salted black sauce. Maybe you shouldn't be going here for the New Orleans/Creole cuisine, but rather, the simply baked/grilled chicken and such dishes might be a safer bet. I would also not recommend getting any of the desserts offered with the tasting menu.

Burger Heaven Restaurant77 10th Street, New Westminster
Juicy patties, tasty overall.
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2006 - 2:04am [Dine in]

Burgers are nicely moist--just the right amount of grease to keep it juicy. Toasted buns (choice of brown or white). Doesn't get messy eating it hands-on. Not too big, not too small, unless you're ordering the $17 burger that's a pound & a half. Most of the burgers are $10/11; they come w/a side of potato wedges or tossed salad w/dressing of choice. The deep fryer probably doesn't see much change in oil as it shows on the fries. Also, the BBQ sauce used in some of the burgers tastes of the bottled variety. Too much gets added to the point of making the burger too vinagry & salty from the artificially enhanced flavouring that is better off absent.

Lemonade, iced tea, and coffee are all bottomless for $2.99, while other drinks/alcohol vary in pricing. I would not recommend you order any drinks other than beer, pop, and maybe coffee.

The kitchen itself looks well kept. Clean. The way it should be. The tables vary in cleanliness or therelack of. You may find crumbs and the like scattered on some (probably too dimly lit for the waitress to notice & it's a clean-what-you-can-see & forget what you can't mentality). There are just too many pots of plants hanging overhead along the beams. There's no escaping them. On a 4-top, you have at least 3 pots overhead; on a 2-top, you get 1.5 hanging above. The corners are the worst. Visible webs connecting corners. Sighting a single strand of web hanging from one of said pots of plants dangling a cocoon or caught-insect wriggling to get free during the course of a meal above one's head, is not very inviting for an extended dining experience--nor a repeat one, actually. I hope this spring brings forth a good thorough cleaning of the dining area--walls and ceiling included, if not an entire new design--sans ceiling plants.

The old newspaper clippings and photo collages are an interesting read and sets a nice mood for the establishment.

Amazing wraps & thick delicious shakes!
Submitted Saturday, February 18, 2006 - 1:02am [Dine in]

Roti rolls w/meat are superb! I was so impressed by the fact that the roti wrapping the juicy contents had NO hint of sogginess--even better was the fact that the wrap was crispy to a point but still completely giving off the texture of bread & no grease! Absolutely mouthwatering! The meat/veggie plates are good as well--served w/single roti to use as you will, salad, soup & rice. If you like thick, fuller flavoured drinks, go for icec ream shakes, not the lighter lassies. I'd recommend their delicious teas or chai's whilst eating in (you get a sampler cup while waiting for seating or for takeouts, etc., either w/milk or soy added) to go with your dinner @$2-4. After your meal, wait around out/inside for a takeout order of the thick dessert drinks being that small's $4.50 while large is $5.50, but dining in, they're $5.50 & $7 respectively. A warm drink'd actually better complement the meal. The fact that the entree plates are served on a round sectioned metal dish/pan (think tire/wheel cap and/or prison dishware), it only adds to the experience (practical to use/clean, sanitize, and durable, etc., I'm sure)*grin*. The service is friendly & enthusiastic. Few seating lends for a cozier atmosphere. 2 tables of 4 seated on comfortable benches; 2 larger tables of 6-7 with one side seated on cushioned/couch along the one wall which may double up as possible communal tables; and 1 possibly larger table at the back. It is spaced well enough that you aren't anywhere near bumping elbows w/neighbouring tables. The rice pudding dessert would have been better if it was served slightly warmed so that the refridgerated-rice texture & taste wouldn't have been so apparent. Entree plates @$17; single roti wrap dish (comes w/potato lentil soup & baby spinach leaves) $11.50 or two rolls (can choose a different meat/type for 2nd) for $14 instead. Their simple menu consists of lamb, beef, chicken, vegetarian/vegan dishes, and a grilled shredded salmon variety. I'm in love~

Submitted Thursday, February 9, 2006 - 10:44pm [Dine in]

It doesn't call me back for revisits though I really wanted to try it a few more times before commenting, but I don't see myself going back. It's not that anything was particularly bad about the experience or the restaurant--except for the mee goreng that tasted and smelled heavily of the preservative/soapy detergent variety, though I understand, not every little place is able to make their own fresh noodles to serve. The roti is very doughy in taste and density. I suppose you don't go for the decor, so it must be the food that brings ppl back. I doubt it's the cleaning detergent the place smelled heavily of as the spray bottle of cleaning solution and towel she uses is kept within reach on an empty table that was just cleaned off and immediately afterwards, empty cups for water was placed lip downwards onto the detergent-filled surface. But I suppose it's not so bad as it has yet to kill anyone for ingesting any of it along with their glass of water. Just reminds me of some of the hole-in-the-wall wonton noodle places of old, and perhaps, some good old fashioned diners. All in all, this is probably a good stop to make if you are craving for someone else's homecooked meal when you don't want to cook for yourself.

Kirin Seafood Restaurant7900 Westminster Highway, #200, Richmond
Quality dimsum, excellent dinners.
Submitted Thursday, February 9, 2006 - 2:24pm [Dine in]

From brunch to lunch to dinners, they're all prepared with equal precision and taste. Dimsum is consistently good--served fresh and steaming. The dimsum menu changes once in a while to add/remove new/old flavours--experimenting with the staple pork & shrimp dumplings amongst other dishes. Each location varies slightly in taste and method (as you will notice with the steamed pork & shrimp dumpling a.k.a. "siu mai".) It's not necessarily a good thing, as is in the case of the Alberni location for this staple item.

Richmond provides a consistency far better than the other locations in flavour and in crowds. Be sure to make advance reservations especially on the weekends. Dinner hours are not so bad so long as there isn't a banquet or several booked.

The service varies. It used to be superb to the point of impressive. All enthusiastic smiles, quick and friendly and attentive. I've noticed recently, it has not been so. It takes more effort to wave down a server than it used to be when just a quick eye contact and a slight motion would have sufficed. For service, the Alberni location outdoes this one for the time being. It's not bad, but it's not impressive or impressionable anymore. They serve great desserts as well! Absolutely a must! As well as the chicken abalone buns for lunch/brunch, and the seafood dinners must include an order of king crab made 2 or 3 ways. The pricing for that is seasonal and varies from week to week ranging from $15-38/lb and they generally come in 7-8lb upwards as well as the fact that the crab should preferably be in the 10-12lb upwards range for it to offer the best juicy, sweetest experience. Also, if you choose to have it served a certain way, there is also the extra $10-15 charge for the dish itself. All in all, well worth it, and it's a similar method of billing at whichever Chinese seafood restaurant you order from (except in some places you end up losing a few legs and/or an extra lb or 2 added to the scaling).

Hamilton Street Grill1009 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
A tasty, unpretentious dining experience.
Submitted Thursday, February 9, 2006 - 3:03am [Dine in]

Reasonable pricing in the heart of Yaletown. Service is always friendly. During one visit, the service, or, rather, a server, was working on alien logic. How is it that a highchair with a baby in it placed at one end of the booth seating situated across from the bar (as was initially suggested/placed by a staff) in the middle of the room is alright (except for the height of chair-to-elevated table difference), while w/o baby in it (inisisted on clinging to mommy for the night), but kept around for the "in-case" but, in the meantime, used as a cloak/bag storage is obtrusive to traffic and in need of an okay with the very hostess that placed it there to begin with. To me, there seems to be plenty of room in between the bar stools and the back of the highchair for servers & patrons to walk by carefully in pairs assuming their elbows are stretched out and they're each balancing a tray of dishes. If crowdedness was the issue, then having a pre-toddler seated there would have been a bigger safety concern against of plates of food spilling. Upon other visits, I've been spared the multiple "have to go ask" host(ess)/manager boy.

The steaks generally were made to perfection as per request. So far there has been only one & a half inconsistencies in the food preparation (re: hanger steak & ahi tuna main). Appetizers are all delicious. The yam fries are superb in spite of the limpness of its appearance with or without the wonderful dip! As a matter of fact, none of their dips/spreads seem to be lacking in flavour. The signature gingerbread pudding's a tad on the overtly sweet and rich side. The other desserts are preferable.

Overall, this is a great dining spot. Very accommodating for large parties of a dozen & upwards from what I have observed. On busy/wet nights, I would suggest you don't check in your coats as they tend to get squeezed in together with everyone else's--it does get packed rather tight in that little cloak/cage contraption.

Crowds during the prime time meal hours. Haven't tried their dinner, but the breakfast/brunches and lunches are standard fair while the fruit juices are bland. Definitely not worth hour long waits or beyond. I wouldn't be revisiting even if it's without any wait time, though I may consider trying their dinner offerings sometime later when I'm in the area. Their desserts in the display look very much "homemade" including the deflated tops on the pies and cakes to the falling-over lady finger biscuits on the sides from the weight of the cake leaning over. Maybe it's just not set cold enough to keep them standing or it was baked that way...

Definitely way overrated.
Submitted Tuesday, February 7, 2006 - 5:34pm [Dine in]

I used to come here once upon a time when it was all the hype and there were fewer choices for all-desserts for a young teenage bunch. I loved the strawberry shortcake when it was in season, and the hot rhubarb pie with the perfect vanilla ice cream to go with it. Everything else I've ventured to try that equated to every variety they had to offer at the time were either too sweet or too heavy or both--and mainly all ended up tasting the same--pure sugar on slightly different levels. Their banana cream pie was alright, but was just more hype than anything else.

Several years since the last visit, I ended up dropping by the downtown location (Denman?) to pick up a cake for a birthday out of convenience and lack of ideas--and also it used to be a preferred hangout of the birthday girl. But alas, to our entire party's disappointment, it was just too rich to have more than a bite or two, and even then, it didn't tempt us to finish the rest, let alone take the cake home (brought to the restaurant we were dining at). All in all, I've never gone back since--whether it be for eat in or take out or birthday cake to go. I just go to Sen5es for a quick lemon tart or stilton cheesecake fix instead while for chocolate cakes, I'd go elsewhere (though it's troublesome that they aren't opened late but there are many other bistros, cafes, restaurants that offer dessert in their lounge or regular seatings until late).

An average experience.
Submitted Tuesday, February 7, 2006 - 5:15pm [Dine in]

Brunch was alright. Though they overcooked a steak for the steak and eggs, they did, without hesitation, replace it with a perfectly made one, along with fresh sides. The service is mostly indifferent and you may have to request multiple times for a refill in coffee/water, etc. After having read the negative reviews below, I now know that it wasn't just a random accident that our table was charged for an extra item we did not order. However, at the time, none of us argued it since it was only a couple of dollars and we figured they did provide a perfectly pink steak after the complaint was made on the well-down piece.

All that said, I don't see myself returning again... who knows, I wouldn't want to have to argue over bill-padding. It wasn't too memorable beyond the above mentioned anyway.
