Marcello Pizzeria1404 Commercial, Vancouver
Best Pizza in the City
Submitted Friday, June 29, 2007 - 8:40pm [Dine in]

Lombardo's pizza used to be this good, but it has been comprimised. They started pile on the cheese! Marcello's Contadina pizza is the best pizza in the city. It is certainly worth the few extra bucks for an authentic Italian taste and style. It's hard to try other items on the menu because you want to stuff your pie hole with-a the best pizza pie!

Bravo,
Bravo!

Moderne Burger2507 West Broadway St., Vancouver
Simply the BEST
Submitted Wednesday, March 28, 2007 - 9:04pm [Dine in]

(As Tina Turner would put it.) I'm sure the fire next door was set to a burger addict in hopes that Moderne Burger would expand. This is the best burger in town. The beef patties are made of some top sirloin concoction and the fries are deep fried in some perfect combination of canola and olive oil i'm certain. It's a mouthful, but I dare you to find a better burger joint. The interior is a fun 50's diner interior minus the kitsch. The service is friendly and efficient. And they serve cherry cola. Nice touch! Can't wait for it to reopen.

Lombardo's Ristorante and Pizzeria1641 Commercial, #120, Vancouver
no stuffed crusts here
Submitted Friday, March 9, 2007 - 10:12am [Dine in]

the pizza is excellent although i wonder if the kitchen has changed a bit--they seem to be adding more cheese to the pizza which is more american and unpleasant. The spaghetti noodles, I am guessing are home made because they are delicious almost like Chinese shanghai noodles. If you don't mind being in a banal mall setting then this is the best place to get something mighty close to an authentic italian style pizza. If you want ham on your pizza, ask if they have prociutto which seems to be off and on in availability. Lombardo's pizza is also great the next day reheated in the oven or cold. Although they share the menu essentials with Marcello's I like to support Lombardo's.

Toko Restaurant223 W. 7th Avenue, Vancouver
Toko a gogo
Submitted Thursday, March 8, 2007 - 2:45am [Dine in]

Toko is a little gem in the midst of an industrial landscape. As I understand, it is a small restaurant component to a noodle factory--GOOD thinking. The noodles are fantastic. I always have hot and sour soup, shanghai noodle stirfry and an ice cream desert. The interior is nice, inoffensive and a great relief from those brightly lit monster dining rooms that the chinese are apt to build and the service is more casual than the sterile and servile high end japanese restaurants. It's casual and clean and I recommend this place before an asian greasy spoon.

Siegel's Bagels1883 Cornwall, Vancouver
onion stock
Submitted Thursday, March 8, 2007 - 2:37am [Dine in]

I love Siegel's. And I was so pleased to discover that they are also available at the Granville Island Market which I frequent more often than the Kits area. The only problem is when ever I go to get onion bagels at kits --they're always sold out! And they're the only ones sold out. I admit I'm not an early bird, but isn't it obvious? We all love the onion bagels. So....Why not make more? We want onion breath at 2pm.

O Thai Cuisine Restaurant1626 West Broadway, Vancouver
the best
Submitted Thursday, March 8, 2007 - 2:30am [Dine in]

This is a remarkable family venture--it's personable, friendly and the food invokes flashbacks to my wondering years in Thailand. I had my doubts--the atmosphere and food presentation is a lot more contemporary than your average Thai restaurant in Vancouver, but my doubts vanished as I discovered over the course of 5 visits that they most certainly deliver on authentic flavours.

The must-do list: tom ka soup, mussels!, the spicy duck salad, the curry seafood, the lobster (I had this during dine-out--amazing!), and the pad thai of course. The food is exceptionally fresh compared to most Thai restaurants. The flavours seem carefully orchestrated and play out well with the right combination of dishes. I was also nicely surprised by the wine list which appeared to be very well researched, very complementary to the spicy dishes. During a birthday party we had an excellent german riesling. I enjoyed it so much I can't recall the name.

I would recommend this place to the ambassador of Thailand.
