Wings Restaurants & Pubs1162 Granville Street, Vancouver
Worst restaurant
Submitted Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 5:45pm [Dine in]

I ended up at Wings because a friend was celebrating his birthday there. I knew in advance that there wouldn't be much on the menu I could eat (I'm a vegetarian), but usually even places like The Keg will have one or two veggie items for those poor souls who end up there against their will. I ended up ordering the spaghetti, which I asked if I could get with olive oil but they told me that wasn't possible. The spaghetti that did arrive was the most flavourless, inedible pasta I have ever been served. I just about emptied the entire contents of a salt shaker on the pasta to add some flavour and I'm not even a salt person. I was there with my girlfriend who was then a meat-eater but who also found the food inedible. (Good to know all their food is equally tasteless and that they're not singling out vegetarians for a bad food experience!) As for the interior, it's your typical, lifeless sports bar. The poor waitresses obviously have to deal with drunken guys all day and I really felt bad for them. Overall, Wings is one of the least pleasant places I've had to spend a night in quite some time.

Naam, The2724 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Best vegetarian in Vancouver?
Submitted Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 5:30pm [Dine in]

The Naam has everything going for it: great food, good service, insane hours (24/7 - rare in Vancouver!). The only thing you need to know before going to The Naam is that it serves a wide range of customers and this is reflected in the menu. So besides vegetarians, The Naam also caters to health food junkies, the raw food crowd, and so on. The few people I've met who have disliked The Naam invariably made the mistake of trying the most experimental, far-out thing on the menu and then complaining that it didn't taste like anything they'd had before. Please don't get me wrong: I'm all for taking chances, but if you don't like beets and carrots then don't order a veggie burger made from beets and carrots! Some items I can definitely recommend: the Vegan Breakfast (served before 11 a.m. if memory serves me), the Thai Noodles, the Deep Fried Tofu, the various Burritos, the Blueberry Soy Shake (even if you're not a "soy person"), and anything with their Miso Gravy. Drop by anytime but be prepared for a long line-up: The Naam has many loyal customers!

Bo Kong Vegetarian Restaurant3068 Main Street, Vancouver
Great Vegetarian Restaurant
Submitted Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 5:18pm [Dine in]

Bo Kong is probably in my top three favourite vegetarian restaurants in Vancouver. But Bo Kong isn't just for vegetarians: besides the faux meats, there's a large selection of vegetables, noodles, soups, and other traditional Chinese fare. If you're going for the first time I would recommend the Pineapple Delight (think Sweet & Sour Pork but veggie), Spinach Noodles, the Orange Cutlet, and the Wonton Soup. A word of caution if you're feeling brave: some items on the menu are definitely less Western-friendly than the items I listed just now. So unless you're very open-minded I would keep away from the more unusual foods. If you have any questions, the staff (who are very considerate and kind) should be able to help you and provide recommendations. Enjoy!

Harambe Ethiopian Restaurant2149 Commercial Street, Vancouver
Favourite African restaurant
Submitted Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 4:58pm [Dine in]

Whether you're interested in trying African food generally or Ethiopian food in particular I would highly recommend Harambe. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is pleasant even if the service usually leaves something to be desired. (But that's part of the experience too!) There are lots of different dishes to try, but your best bet is the Chef's Platter which you can share with several friends. Harambe is also a great restaurant if you're a vegan (like me) or a vegetarian. There is an excellent Vegetarian Platter that is completely vegan and will leave you full for hours. My only other advice is to visit Harambe more than once. Ethiopian food (like sushi) is an acquired taste and takes time to build up. Once you develop a taste though you'll find yourself wanting to snack on Ethiopian at least once a month. And for this purpose, Harambe's your best bet!
