Slice of Chicago5812 Fraser Street, Vancouver
US attempt at pizza
Submitted Monday, January 18, 2016 - 8:50pm [Delivery]

Lemme just start off by saying I never really got the appeal of Chicago pizza. Seems a little...meh. It always felt like something on people in the US, or not even that, Chicago would like. So anyways, lead to another and I ended up ordering from here. 1 medium Hawaiian it was for the nite. Delivery took a little longer than expected, called to confirm my address later on. Pizza was okay and I forgot to tell them no deep dish so it came anyway. The taste was okay but I couldn't finish it because it was so big. Eating it by hand was a hassle as everything was spilling so I had to use an excessive number of napkins to pick it up.

Gold Train Express Vietnamese Cuisine3320 Kingsway, Vancouver
Full is not always good
Submitted Sunday, January 17, 2016 - 7:53pm [Dine in]

I always thought Asian food, especially Cantonese/Vietnamese would be a safe choice in this city. With the number of family run, authentic joints Vancouver has, I thought one could not go wrong?

WRONG. It was nearing 11pm and nothing much was open (or, everything was closing) and because of all the hush-hush, our stomachs were rumbling for dinner. In our quest to satisfy our hunger, we found this place. We decided to stop here because a) it was open 24/7 b) it was not empty, which made us think it was a safe bet and c) they had pho. I mean, who can say no to pho?

I would consider it to be substandard even for a place that is always open. Not only was it too stuffy and crowded to move around, but we must have been there for a good 15 minutes before we even got out - barely put together - menu. The thing was falling apart. Should have taken it as a foreshadowing, because the food and service was no better. Phos would arrive randomly, mine must have come 20 minutes after everyone else's and asking the server for anything would get you an eyeroll and an attitude. I can understand working late in the night is not the best, but I think we can all agree to put on our best behaviour.

I'll give this one a pass next time.

Adonia Tea House2057 West 41st Ave., Vancouver
Beautiful Place. Else lacking
Submitted Monday, December 1, 2014 - 2:21am [Dine in]

A friend who is from Vancouver recommended us this place for tea. Seeing pictures of it on my phone, I decided to check it out with some friends who were also from out of town.

I guess we chose to arrive as tons of other people because there was a line out the door. First strange or bad encounter was the staff turning people away. We decided to stay and after waiting for 30 minutes or so, got a seat at this coveted tea place.

Once inside, you felt like in some sort of movie. Cutesy china everywhere, which gave me a vibe of being back at my grandma's place. But that's where the fairy tale or whatever you want to call it ended. No one acknowledged us for a while. The place is tiny mind you, which is okay with us, but not the lack of proper seating arrangements. I do not want to be bumping elbows with strangers, thank you.

As for the food and tea itself, it was alright, but nothing to write home about. Tons and tons of options to choose from, and with no help from the waitress, I had to randomly go for the kalahari (not sure how you spell it). Not only did our tea take forever to come, but the waitress never came back to check up on us during our stay. It is okay to have a bad day, just dont take it out on your customers.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Solid take out option
Submitted Monday, December 1, 2014 - 2:02am [Take-out]

Coming from Toronto, we really enjoy our curry houses and do know a thing or two about them. So after playing tennis, we decided to head back to our friend's place where we are staying and ordered some Indian. We were too tired and lazy to get dressed and eat out.

Akbars food tasted just like the one back home. There were a couple of places that came to mind while I devoured the vindaloo. I would have liked a higher chicken pieces to sauce ratio, but the sauce was pretty good. We opted for rice this time and it smelled delicious. Not sure about the prices here but for my usual standards they were not too bad.

Would I order again? If in the area, yes.

Pizzeria Libretto221 Ossington Avenue, Toronto
Traditional Neapolitan Pizza? Check
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 12:58am [Dine in]

Compared to the one in Danforth location and this one, I'll stay with this one. Everytime I come here though I have to wait in line for a long time, but the pizza here is worth it. If you want traditional Neapolitan pizza that is. Fun fact, Pizzeria Libretto is one of the few Italian or pizza places that is certified by the VPN! Which means that the pizza is actually made in the right style like it is done back home, with the wood oven and all.

I love the sights and smells of this place, the only problem I have is that sometimes my pizza comes burnt on the sides and stuff. Pizzas are large and cost about $15 in general. I always get the Margherita, which is simply great. There are other things to order as well, like salads and pastas. The meatballs is a safe dish for me that never comes out bad. Staff is also super nice and helpful, never seen one act bad or accidentally "forget" to check up on you.

Manic Coffee426 College Street, Toronto
Superior indeed!
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 12:40am [Take-out]

With so many interesting coffee shops in Toronto, it is hard to stand out. Manic for me does, because of the superior quality of its coffee. And I don't mean "superior" by just saying it, they actually use Intelligentsia coffee.

I love coming here to hang out by myself. I love the feel of the coffee in a cup, it is very homey and I especially love the art that comes in the lattes and cappucinos. The shop is kind of small and it can get busy, so getting a spot is highly coveted! There are not many options on the menu, but a couple of coffee options and some pastries (cookies, croissants etc). Also for sale is gelato, which I have never tried myself but seems to be good.

Gandhi Cuisine554 W Queen St, Toronto
Still one of the best in Toronto
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 12:11am [Take-out]

Hailed as the best rotis in town,this is a must-visit for anyone new to the city. Still pretty good food wise, but Mother India beats it.The malai kofta roti is simply delectable, but my personal favourite is the butter chicken roti. Not the best of locations, the store is a little crammed and one can find themselves usually with no place to eat, so I just prefer to take to go or opt for take-out. Prices are alright, some people complain it is too high but the portions are pretty large. You can eat them in two seatings.

Note: dont take credit cards!

Banh Mi Boys392 West Queen Street, Toronto
Boy, are these sandwiches great!
Submitted Saturday, November 29, 2014 - 9:06pm [Take-out]

Looking for cheap, good sandwiches? Bahn mi is the place to go whenever im looking for a good sandwich for lunch, and is good to fill you up and not leave you hungry afterwards. The kimchi fries are quite addicting if you ask, and for sandwiches I like the five spice pork belly. Prices are alright and the service is quick, I'm usually in and out in a jiffy. An all-rounder good place for me.

Rivoli, The334 W Queen St, Toronto
Outstanding ambience
Submitted Friday, November 21, 2014 - 6:36pm [Dine in]

The Rivoli is one of those cool places in town where everybody wants to hang out, but nobody knows why. I guess I can answer my own question. It is all about the feel of the place and the atmosphere. The proposal of the place is really cool: lounge, bar, patio, pool tables and live music. The food is not that good, below average for a bar but everything else makes up for it. The only thing I have ever liked from here is the malay chicken w/ peanut sauce & jasmine rice. It is nice to come here with friends and relax listening to the local live band playing that nite or play some pool.
