Caffe Cittadella2310 Ash St., Vancouver
Paninos are great. Soup is great too.
Submitted Saturday, September 4, 2010 - 10:40am [Take-out]

It is located in a heritage building and pretty close to my office. It is in a serene neighbourhood. There are 2 small tables for alfresco dining. They have about 5-6 variety of paninis and ham & chesse crossiant. I have been there twice during lunchtime and once in the morning to pick up a brewed coffee.

I had their Turkey Panino $7+ , Corn Chowder and Coconut Thai soup. I cant remember the other panini I had. They were all great. The brewed coffee is average compared to Elysian Coffee (just 2 blocks away from them). It does take a while to grill the panino, so some waiting is required.

A colleague tried their blueberry muffin one morning and commented that there was no blueberries in it.

I will definitely be back there again to support local small businesses.

Dinesty Chinese Restaurant8111 Ackroyd Road, #160, Richmond
Love the dishes!! Yummy
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

All the food items are very Taiwanese. The decor is great by Vancouver standard. And you can see them wrap the dumplings through the large glass windows, just like Ting Tai Fung in Taipei and Singapore.

I love the small portions of the dishes. It makes it possible to order more variety.

We ordered the following:
- hot soya milk drink ($1.25 for a large bowl; very reasonable)
- mushroom beancurd roll (fantastic !! Just perfectly fried)
- xiao long bao (excellent; exactly what it is supposed to be)
- panfried pork buns (good)
- smoked fish (hmmm.. I would give it a skip unless I'm having congee)

The service was a little slow and they missed an item we ordered. There is ample parking as it shares the same huge parking lots as Chapters.

I saw a Taiwanese breakfast item I absolutely love - shao bing you tiao. I will definitely head there for breakfast sooon....

Insadong Korean Restaurant403 North Road, #301, Coquitlam
LOVE their combination trays for XX number of people
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 1:02pm [Dine in]

GREAT place for friends and families! I have been there SO many times over the past 3 years that I cant remember the actual number of visits!

We have always ordered their BBQ combination trays, which includes choice of salad, soup, noodles and seafood pancake. Their meat is always perfectly marinated. I love their seafood salad and toufu soup.

Reservations are highly recommended to avoid long wait times. Service is always prompt despite high traffic.

On my last visit, I was there with 14 other people (most of them were visiting from overseas) in one of their private rooms. Everyone just RAVED about their food.

Kirin Seafood Restaurant1163 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam
NOT a good place for weekend dim sum. Selection is poor! Dinner menu is great though
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 12:53pm [Dine in]

I was very shocked to find that they have a MUCH smaller dim sum selection than the Kirin restaurant in Richmond. I was at a loss of what I could order to 'feed' my guests.

Neverthess, the food quality is great. You need to arrive before 12 noon to get a table without waiting.

I have been there for dinner a couple of times. Love their dinner menu! The Taro duck dish (cant remember the precise name) is better than the one at Kirin Richmond.

Poor Italian Trattoria & Ristorante3296 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver
Very slow service... Unable to cope with traffic
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 12:45pm [Dine in]

We made a 630pm reservation on a weekday. The restaurant was PACKED. Like most people, we were unable to find parking in their parking and did streetside parking in the neighourhood.

The free bread was okay but not freshly baked. (Sorry,I'm used to getting freshly baked bread at Italian & French restaurants.)

The oyster soup was GREAT. So was their Calamari and Spicy Sausage. After that we waited some 45min for our entrees. Lasagne was mediocre; I'm sure we cooked better at home. The Osso Bucco was underseasoned and the accompanying risotto was very slightly undercooked and flat.

The prices are definitely more affordable than other restaurants in downtown Vancouver. The portion sizes are generous. It was a little too dark for me to appreciate the ambience. I could hardly read the menu! (Hey they published their lunch and dinner menu online!)

I would go again on a quieter day. I'm sure their food and service would be better then!

Kelong Singapore Cuisine4800 N.3 Rd., #130, Richmond
Singapore Laksa is consistently great
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 12:34pm [Dine in]

I have gone there for their Singapore laksa during lunchtime a couple of times. It has been consistently great. They are generous and always put lots of ingredients..

I can tell from its restuarant patrons that they are regulars and they have come for their favorite Singapore/Malaysian dishes with friends and families. Cant go wrong with this place! Great value for money. I believe they are closed on Mondays.

Char Hor Fun was authentic and my favourite
Submitted Tuesday, December 29, 2009 - 4:39pm [Dine in]

Food: I visit this outlet all the time. I love all their dishes. In particular, I was drawn to their Char Hor Fun. It tastes just like the way I remember it at a typical 'sze char' (i.e. serious wok-cooking action over a big fire) restaurant in Singapore!

Service: Always very prompt. They replenish your ice water pretty quick.

Ambience: Love the ambience. It is definitely a guest-worthy restaurant, not one of those run down mom-and-pap places in Vancouver. I would take my friends there anytime to sample the Singapore and Malaysian cuisine.

Love their fish soup base
Submitted Tuesday, December 29, 2009 - 4:31pm [Dine in]

Call me weird perhaps. I simply adore their fish soup base; I ordered their "Thick Vermicelli Fish Soup with Seasonal Veggies" which costs $7.95. The vermicelli was cooked just to the correct texture and the mix of button mushrooms, corn kernels, carrot slices, broccoli, bean sprouts and toufu puff was perfect!
