La Brasserie1091 Davie Street, Vancouver
Awesome Experience
Submitted Sunday, October 31, 2010 - 2:46pm [Dine in]

Went to La Brasserie for the first time for lunch last week after hearing about it here and there for awhile. Had the suckling pig sandwich and a $5 Boris beer. The service was outstanding (we were positively doted on), the food came out quickly and the sandwich was DELICIOUS (fries were meh, but then fries almost always are). A very good experience all in all. It's too bad the room is so tiny and lacks ambiance. I will definitely be coming here again.

Las Tortas Mexican Gourmet Sandwiches3353 Cambie St, Vancouver
I Wanted to Like It.
Submitted Sunday, October 31, 2010 - 2:40pm [Dine in]

My mother and I had been wanting to visit Las Tortas for awhile as I live in the area and she had heard of it through the Latin community. We love Mexican food and Mexican sandwiches sounded fantastic! We figured we'd stop by for a quick lunch.

Unfortunately, we just had a downright bad experience. It was very disapointing as we wanted so much to like this place. To begin with we ordered our sandwiches: pulled pork with Mexican spices for me, with extra guacamole, chorizo and egg for Ma. There's a disclaimer of sorts at the top of the menu letting you know the fixings that come on your sandwich (tomato, lettuce, slaw, hot pepper, butter, mayo), and we both asked for no butter or mayo (I'm lactose intolerant). At this point we were the only people in the restaurant waiting for food, but three more tables filled up while we waited. And waited. There were three people behind the counter, one girl at the cash register and two men making the food. We could hear loud talking and laughing going on, which was actually kind of nice. Having worked in a restaurant it's good to know people are having a good time at work. When our food finally arrived (about 15 minutes), it was tepid at best!! Having supposedly just come off the grill, I was surprised, confused, and kind of annoyed. Were the sandwiches just sitting there while all the hilarity was going on? How on earth were they cold?

Anyway, ravenous at this point, we dug in. Mine had butter and mayo galore. They'd got my mom's order right though, so she kindly offered to switch with me as any kind of dairy makes me pretty violently ill. It worked out, but I had been really stoked for pulled pork dammit!! Both sandwiches lacked flavour and were honestly just bland.

I'd say if you're looking for a decent sandwich, don't go here, though I'm glad other people have had such positive experiences. For good pulled pork go to Memphis Blues or La Brasserie (their suckling pig sandwich is to die for!)
