Transylvania Flavour2120 West Broadway, Vancouver
nothing failed to impress
Submitted Tuesday, May 13, 2008 - 11:14pm [Dine in]

This place serves the tastiest cabbage rolls, nothing like the bland wet pierogies you get at other places. Soup of the day was a delicious and velvety carrot soup. Schnitzel was a generous portion, not too bad. Goulash was substantial, certainly on the spicy side but not overly so. Chocolate cake sounds out of place among goulash and schnitzel, but don't miss it! Service was outstanding, with the friendly owner more than helpful with menu recommendations.

La Cuisson Coffee Shop8368 Capstan Way, #1325, Richmond
best coffee in Richmond
Submitted Wednesday, November 7, 2007 - 2:02pm [Dine in]

La Cuisson is a hole in the wall that may be a little hard to find, but it's worth the trip. This place serves the best coffee in Richmond, period. I know that that's a pretty low bar given that there just aren't too many coffee houses in Richmond, but it can definitely hold its own even compared to popular Vancouver coffees. Just don't mind the odd musty smell hanging over the place.

Phnom Penh Restaurant244 E Georgia St, Vancouver
delicious, unique food
Submitted Wednesday, November 7, 2007 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

Sure, you'll find all the mainstays of Vietnamese cooking here, like spring rolls and lemon grass chicken. But you could go to Pho Hoa for those things. What you come here for are the special menu items, like the fried chicken wings in lemon-pepper sauce. And the butter beef (rare-medium rare slices in a soy-vinegar sauce, toasted garlic, cilantro and some dabs of butter). You will get hooked.

Richmond Sushi8388 Capstan Way, #1488, Richmond
cheap, decent EAYC
Submitted Wednesday, November 7, 2007 - 1:46pm [Dine in]

For the price, Richmond Sushi offers decent food. You don't eat here expecting Tojo-quality food, which some reviewers appear to do. Still, for inexpensive and tasty Japanese, Richmond Sushi is hard to beat.

Great Han Mongolian BBQ3043 Main Street, Vancouver
good value for money
Submitted Friday, April 20, 2007 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

At $5.95 for a large bowl, you could do a lot worse. Also, they have installed a sneeze guard, so you can rest easy about getting any germs that way. But if you are really queasy about exposed food, then mongolian just isn't for you.

The food/ingredients are ok, after all you pick it yourself. Service can be inconsistent, although it's generally pretty good.

Chutney Villa Fine South Indian Cuisine147 East Broadway, Vancouver
so-so food, not so service
Submitted Friday, April 20, 2007 - 2:49pm [Dine in]

Seeing as how the other reviewers were pretty split on this place, I decided to give it a try. I ordered the chicken curry lunch special. It was tasty enough, and plenty spicy! Still, nothing to write home about. And $8 for a tiny dish of curry with 2 side dipping sauces, papadum and naan (which cost extra).

I wouldn't mind going back if not for the service. The server, whom I presumed was the owner, was inattentive, if not rude.

Siegel's Bagels1883 Cornwall, Vancouver
possibly the best bagels around
Submitted Friday, February 16, 2007 - 5:32pm [Dine in]

Siegel's bagels always hits the spot: chewy, slightly sweet. I like the plain ones, but the rosemary-rock salt is an interesting change. They go great with Siegel's specialty cream cheeses (overpriced, though). The chocolate-nut rugelach is pretty good too. Sandwiches are about average (I've tried the pastrami).

Kaplan's Star Deli5775 Oak Street, Vancouver
Best deli around
Submitted Friday, February 16, 2007 - 2:17pm [Dine in]

Being a huge fan of jewish deli/bakery fare, I just had to try Kaplan's. It exceeded my expectations. The corned beef sandwich was tasty, not overly salty like what you find in other places. And the rugelachs were among the best I'd had: crunchy (if you like them that way) and tasty. Try the cinammon-raisin or the apricot.

Great ambiance
Submitted Friday, February 9, 2007 - 3:27pm [Dine in]

Nice pub atmosphere located at the north end of Cattrall in Gastown. Extensive draft beer/drink selection. Food is reasonably good (had the pot pie). But be prepared for slooow, if friendly, service (there were only 2 servers when I was there)

Guu Original838 Thurlow St, Vancouver
stay away from BBQ beef
Submitted Friday, December 8, 2006 - 5:33pm [Dine in]

have only tried the BBQ beef here, which I cannot recommend. The cuts weren't the best, and I found the sauce too salty. Servers were very polite, though. Service was on the slow side, perhaps because it was the height of the lunch rush.

Will have to come back to try the other menu items.
