Trees Organic Coffee450 Granville St., Vancouver
Cheesecake - good, coffee - respectable, panini - meh
Submitted Thursday, September 17, 2009 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

Trees has just moved to its new location on Pacific and Richards. I miss the sparkly tree they had at the Granville location and the chairs and seats seem placed a little awkwardly right now. But overall, the decor is pretty cool. The service is pretty friendly and quick.

Food/drinks-wise:
I had the white chocolate mocha - it wasn't as good as my favorite (Starbucks) but it was pretty good, nevertheless. My grilled Mediterranean baguette was not as flavorful and wholesome as I would have liked. I took some white chocolate-banana cheesecake home and that was pretty good. It wasn't the best cheesecake I have *ever* had, but definitely very good. It's what I'll be going back to Trees for.

Little Thai Place1839 Cook Street, Victoria
I love you, Little Thai!
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 12:49pm [Dine in]

I never had Thai food in Thailand (because I am vegetarian and it was never easy to explain I didn't want shrimp sauce or any other non-veg stuff in my food), so I don't know if Little Thai is authentic. But I do know it's simply the *best* Thai food I ever had! The pad thai, red curry, penang curry were fantastic and I would usually take out.

The staff is usually courteous but brisk because they handle so many customers, and the many people coming in to take out makes it a little noisy and busy. The food, though, is consistently awesome.

Tamarind Hill Malaysian Cuisine628 6th Avenue, #103, New Westminster
Tamarind Bliss
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 12:36pm [Dine in]

When driving all the way from downtown to New Westminster, we were hoping the food would be worth the ride. And it really was!

Our group of 4 shared spring rolls and roti-canai, which were pretty good (and oily). We shared 3 vegetarian dishes of which the Sambal Chili was the absolute best (again deep-fried) and the Sayur Lemak (veggies in coconut gravy) and Indian Mee Goreng (noodles) were fantastic too.

The service, which we barely noticed between bites, was quick and friendly enough. The value was great, too - between the four of us, we paid just $50!

Green Lettuce1949 Kingsway, Vancouver
Great food and value
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

I had been looking for an Indo-chinese restaurant in Vancouver in search of the kind of Chinese food I'd had in India (sweet and sour and lots of garlic). I didn't get the same taste at Green Lettuce, but it was excellent nevertheless. We ordered a number of things among which the chili paneer and fried rice stood out. The food is also very reasonably priced, and they take 15% off the bill when you take-out.

Since we ordered takeout, I can't comment on the service, but one look at the restaurant is enough to tell you that ambiance-wise, this is not a hip/sophisticated place. But you might be too busy smacking your lips to notice.

Harambe Ethiopian Restaurant2149 Commercial Street, Vancouver
Great experience, so-so food
Submitted Friday, June 19, 2009 - 9:41pm [Dine in]

We had been wanting to try Ethiopian food for a while and came to Harambe at the suggestion of friends. The ambiance and decor is simple, with the focus apparently being the food. The lady and gentleman running the restaurant were warm and welcoming, though a little brisk when it came to taking our order. We ordered a selection for two and loved the presentation. However, the food arrived barely lukewarm instead of hot. It was also not delicious, just plain. I wouldn't come back to eat myself, but I might bring visitors who are new to Ethiopian food just for the novelty of the food layout and presentation.
