Bob Likes Thai Food1521 W Broadway, Vancouver
Good Thai Food and good value...
Submitted Wednesday, March 13, 2013 - 12:53pm [Dine in]

I ran across Bob's quite by accident. I spotted the well-placed sign board as I was on the sidewalk - a good idea considering I could have easily walked by the place as it's very small and not very visible. The name jumped out at me and roused my curiosity. The restaurant was busy and the menu looked intriguing so I decided to invite some friend to check it out the next night. I made a reservation as it was a Friday night and was certain it would be busy. When we walked in (oops a few minutes late) our table was ready and waiting for us with a small "reserved" sign placed on it... the table was tiny but we managed to fit ourselves around it. It would be hard to get 4 big guys around the table so were were lucky we had 2 girls along with us. There was a slight hiccup with the service initially - more of a miss communication between the servers (it took them a few minutes to realize we had not been provided menu's). We ordered from the server once settled and quickly made friends with the owner "Tai" who was hovering around. He was a typical friendly Thai guy. Our drinks and food arrived very quickly - The papaya salad was excellent and refreshing. We decided to share everything as it was our first time... we ordered 3 curries: a Masamman, Cashew chicken, and the Panang, served with simple Jasmin rice and a Coconut rice. My one (smal) issue was the rice was at an extra charge and not included with the meals. I mean who eats a thai curry without rice? We also split a Pad Si-Ew which is similar to a pad thai but with egg and pork and it was delicious as well. Overall, the food was very good. All of us at the table had been to Thailand at one time or the other, and were happy with the flavors. Our bill was approx $130 between the four and that included the several Singha beers and coctail we had. Definitely good value for money in my book. It's too bad they don't deliver as I live a few blocks away but it's my new "go to" Thai place for sure. Highly recommended.

It's the jalapenos!

Every sandwich on the menu I have tried is great. My favorites are the chicken and shrimp. It's the pickled jalapenos with the creamy garlic mayo, cilantro and baguette. Makes for a stellar combination. You can order online in advance and I heard it works well through friends who have used it. All in all love this place. It's a good lunch hour spot, fairly quick, fresh, and very tasty.

Tapa's with a twist...
Submitted Monday, November 12, 2012 - 6:47pm [Dine in]

I'm of Spanish heritage so I was excited when I was introduced to a new spanish style tapa's place in Vancouver. First off, the "morcilla" (spanish style blood sausage) is outstanding - made in house but very close to the real deal. I'm not a huge fan of the paella though, mind you it's a difficult dish to make if your not doing it from scratch and have to watch your ingredients and portions because of cost. But over all the menu is very good and the food is complimented with a good assortment of Spanish beers like Alhambra or wines from varying regions. Also, the specials seem to change often and you get to try something new when you visit - like rabbit leg confit, battered and deep fried. Sound good... it is. My favorite tapas place right now.
