Guu Otokomae375 Water Street, #105, Vancouver
Spacious Stylish
Submitted Saturday, July 15, 2006 - 5:18pm [Dine in]

With its spli level layout, Otokomae is the most spacious of the three Guu izakayas. And with its brick walls and urban decor its the most stylish. Thus, all in all, its got the best atmosphere of the three.

Most recently, four of us had 7 or 8 dishes, 2 large Kirins, 2 pints and a cocktail for $82 (after tax, pre-tip).

The gyu tataki and chicken karrage are excellent, as is the okonomiyaki. Every time I go I get the Popeye Salad - one of my favorite salads in the city.

Make a reservation on Friday or Saturday nights or you'll be waiting in line long enough to grab a beer or two down the street at Steamworks (which isn't a bad idea in itself).

Masa's A La Carte3689 W.4th Ave, Vancouver
Refreshingly Fresh
Submitted Monday, June 26, 2006 - 10:57am [Dine in]

I came across this little licensed cafe yesterday while strolling up from Jericho Beach.
I ordered the lunch sandwich special: Avacado & Prawn Sandwich with Salad. The salad was fresh spring mix with cubes of melon, sliced strawberries, blackcurrants (I think), and creamy cucumber poppy seed dressing. Awesome.
The sandwich was even better. Fresh avacado slices and sauteed prawns between two thick pieces of fresh bread I watched her slice off the loaf.
The girls a few tables away ordered some fine smelling gyoza and tasty looking chicken karrage that I intend to go back and try as soon as possible. There are also various sushi and a number of other Japanese dishes on the menu.
The atmosphere is perfect bright & clean sunny cafe.

The description above needs to be updated, as they do accept debit card payment.

Andales Mexican Restaurant3211 W Broadway St., Vancouver
How do you say so-so in Spanish?
Submitted Wednesday, May 24, 2006 - 6:17pm [Dine in]

"Andales"... that's how. I found nothing horribly wrong with the place, but nothing horribly exciting either. Nothing stood out... not even a nacho chip. The food is also very "gringo-friendly", so if you're looking for that kickass authentic fare that you ended up paying for on the flight home from Cabo, this isn't the place for you.

Boathouse Restaurant, The1795 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Prime Patio - Helluva Halibut
Submitted Wednesday, May 24, 2006 - 5:58pm [Dine in]

The covered/heated year-round patio overlooking English Bay can't be beat. Unless of course, you're talking about the halibut & chips they serve - the best I've had north of Steveston.
And they do a pretty damn fine mohito too!

Kam's Place1043 Davie Street, Vancouver
Solid Standards
Submitted Wednesday, May 24, 2006 - 5:52pm [Dine in]

I love the food at Kam's - if I stick to my faves... which is the red curry chicken and the ginger pork. However, I've been twice disappointed with the pad thai (a dish I ususally love), and find the sha cha beef boring and bland. The key to Kam's for me is finding the dishes he does to my liking and sticking with 'em. Not the most exciting approach, but awesome for calling ahead and picking up take-out on the way home from work.

Dix BBQ & Brewery871 Beatty St., Vancouver
Good BBQ n' Good Cheap Beer
Submitted Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - 2:46pm [Dine in]

I got the Pulled Pork Sandwich on the recommendation of a friend. Good call. Good size and great taste for under 10 bucks.
The service was subpar, however we were there on a Friday at 5pm - which appears to be their busiest time.
4 bucks for Honey Lager. 4 bucks for a Blonde Ale. The Pale Ale? 4 bucks. Stout? 4 bucks. Good beer AND cheap beer. How can you go wrong? (Well, the tequila shots were over 6 bucks each).

Raincity Grill1193 Denman Street, Vancouver
Vancouver's Best Restaurant
Submitted Friday, January 7, 2005 - 1:29pm [Dine in]

Hands down my favorite place for dinner in this wonderful wet city. The ONLY place to go in Vancouver if you're in the mood for lamb. Excellent and knowledgable staff. Valet parking in the evenings. A perfect patio for sunny days over-looking English Bay. The best wine cellar in the city. The "Spoons" menu is brilliant. And now an "early-bird special": 3 courses for $22! (From 5-6pm, reservations required). If a man could shag a restaurant, I'd be taking this one home.

Gyoza King1508 Robson Street, Vancouver
Good Gyoza Guys!
Submitted Friday, January 7, 2005 - 12:53pm [Dine in]

A small, tight fit with tables and people packed in like sardines -this place is crowded for a reason. The prices and portions are fair and the food is as good as izakaya grub gets. I recommend the roll-your-own (should be popular in this town) negitoro. The beer is also a good price - a big bottle of Kirin Ichiban is $6.95.

Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar615 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Vancouver's Most Overrated Steak
Submitted Friday, January 7, 2005 - 12:34pm [Dine in]

A near-flavourless New York for a nickle under forty bucks? And that's a la carte (which means "no potato" in French). Go to The Keg for a better steak, salad, potato, appy and drink for the same price.
HOWEVER, the ambiance is great for a date or if you feel like feeling wealthy. The service is good (not great), but I do like that they (at least the servers I've had there) aren't that brand of snooty waiter that one can often come across at the higher end joints.

Guu Original838 Thurlow St, Vancouver
A JAPANESE Japanese Restaurant
Submitted Friday, January 7, 2005 - 12:19pm [Dine in]

If the ambience you're looking for is that of a "real" Japanese Izakaya then this is the place to go. Furthermore, it's one of the few Japanese restaurants in Vancouver that is actually staffed by Japanese people. The food is good and fairly priced and the staff is more than attentive.
