Bin 941 Tapas Parlour941 Davie St, Vancouver
Great Food, Very Loud Music
Submitted Monday, October 29, 2007 - 10:59am [Dine in]

We decided to try this place out despite the more recent review. The food was splendid. The service was pretty friendly despite the crowd. The music and decor could definately use a change-over. The music was so loud that we couldn't talk to each other properly. The decor seemed like a gothic, grunge explosion in a night club. Good if you're trying to draw in just clubers but not if you want to attract food-goers. Anyhow, the food was done just right (melt-in-your mouth) and quite a surprise considering the small set-up they have. Overall, give a try if you don't mind the loud music.

Great Little Bites
Submitted Monday, October 29, 2007 - 10:54am [Dine in]

This was a great experience. Slightly different feel and vibe than Guu, but with very good little bites. Overall, the seasoning is just right here and all of their staff get right into serving you. It's almost hard to miss if you don't look closely. They are known for their great charcoal flavoured skewers. Definately give everything a try. We've been back several times since.

Pearl Drops Teahouse422 Willingdon, Burnaby
A Big Difference!
Submitted Wednesday, October 24, 2007 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

After having been disappointed at so many other bubble tea / teahouse establishments, I almost missed this gem. Pearl Drops is completely original in their approach to making drinks. They serve tea, bubble tea, tea lattes all in a well-crafted manner. Their dedication to their skills shine through in their drinks. I read the other reviews and agree with the ones stating how creative and fresh their drinks are. If you want fresh fruits, teas, or anything premium quality bubble tea, then Pearl Drops is your best bet. We've been back at least four times already, and we live all the way across town. As for the recent critic about their strawberry banana slush, I think you are too used to being served artificial ingredients so fresh may taste strange at first. But, definately continue with your daily dose or pearl drops because your taste buds will thank you in the end. The owners seem to be very proud of their products and very community-minded as well. This is a very good sign of an establishment on the road to success. I hear that they are looking to open a food menu as well. If it's anything like their drinks, then it well be a whole package success. Give this place a try. It's a big difference!

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
Back To Basics
Submitted Sunday, October 21, 2007 - 2:27am [Dine in]

This is an absolutely no frills establishment. No decor, bad floors, and doesn't look like they would try to fix up the place. People come here only for the noodles. The noodles are very good, very chewy. The broth, well, if you don't like fatty stuff then definately tell them you want lean. Nothing creative about their menu either. Seems they recycle the same ingredients into different menu items with different names. I don't understand why they will not allow you take-out. Maybe extra food containers would be additional costs? If you've got the time to line up and want a good filler, then Kintaro would be a good option.

Tojo's Restaurant1133 W Broadway, Vancouver
Another Hit!
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 3:52pm [Dine in]

This would not be our first time to Tojo's. Their quality of freshness is hands down second to none in the city! I'm the biggest fan of tuna toro nigiri sashimi. What can I say? Tojo's offers the most succulent cuts I've ever tasted. We were entertaining out-of-town guests to their omakase. This is a must try for any special occassion. I will point out that not all the dishes were big hits in this tasting menu, but definately well crafted. Their premium sake was absolutely wonderful and very aromatic. Overall, if you want fresh and creative dishes in Japanese cuisine, then book your next reservation here. Just don't expect them to serve you typical sushi rolls, cause they're capable of so much more!

Am I missing something?
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 3:32pm [Dine in]

I was told that this was the best place for bubble tea, and after reading some of the other reviews, we decided to stand in line after all. The service was actually pretty friendly considering how crowded it was and that it was your typical over-the-counter exchange. The atmosphere was super cramped! Now, I'm a big critic when it comes to mis-advertising. My mango drink, which I chose to go for the milk slush version, was not real mango. Mango pulp is what I tasted - the same thing they use for mango pudding. And I'm pretty sure the milk was not real either - you can see them stirring something in before they blend the drink. Don't get me wrong, the drink was pretty decent considering the price. I just wish they wouldn't say fresh fruit or milk if they weren't fresh. For the reviewer who claims they use very good tea. They don't add tea to your slush drinks. It's only the milk teas. Even then I doubt they have very good tea for all tea palettes. The pearls were very good, I have to admit. Overall, it's a decent place to get bbt for the price, but not for the wait or quality.

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
Good Flavours
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 3:50pm [Dine in]

They have pretty good flavours - not too salty, not too bland, etc. Not something that would stand out from other Japanese establishments. Their concept of dinning is not for everyone - loud and in your face with orders being shouted across the restaurant. I would not go here if I want to dine in peace, but definately give it a try if you want something different and exciting. They serve mainly small tapas portions. Two can be satisfied for around $40.

Hits The Spot
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 3:40pm [Dine in]

I was craving some east indian spices so my wife and I decided we dread the wait. The line was super crazy, but definately a must to have such a fine caliber of cooking. I would suggest go as early as you can esp if you're thinking a busy Friday night. Anyhow, the food was exceptional and the service just as comparable. Take it from me and all the other reviewers, it's worth the wait.
