Super Wok505 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver
Good and cheap
Submitted Thursday, May 27, 2010 - 9:34am [Dine in]

I've been visiting this place for the past one year. All I say is, I can go there and have lunch and dinner and not spend more than $20. I used to visit them 3 days a week.

The owners are always full of smiles no matter how busy but go after 3pm, you can sit down and enjoy a good taiwanese meal with the smaller crowd. From one glance, you would think that they serve chinese food. Yes, it's chinese but it's Taiwanese-chinese food, not very common in Vancouver (well, you have your chain of nice uber trendy bubble tea places in Richmond) but this is different.

Family run place and I have to say, this is good.

If you like Taiwanese food, try their triangular Hakka dumplings (ke jia guo zong) or their taiwanese hamburger (gua4 bao1), it just feels familiar

On saturdays they have breakfast (your usual Canadian breakfast like eggs & bacon) but they also have Taiwanese breakfast.

Give it a try!

Kamei Royale1030 W Georgia Street, #211, Vancouver
Kamei Royale after Renovations
Submitted Wednesday, December 31, 2008 - 7:36pm [Dine in]

Kamei closed for more than a week in Dec to put some refreshed touches to the place. This is a place where you absolutely have to make reservations for lunch if you have more than a party of 2. It is always packed. Dinner can be slightly better but it is still crowded. Japanese tour groups patronize this restaurant often. Prices are ok for DT dining but the rolls can be a little bigger please!

The menu is comprehensive, with lunch and dinner having slightly different items. Dinner for me costs lots more as I don't think there were any bentos.

Food standard has always been the same.
Must try.. the coffee jelly as it's my favorite Japanese dessert.

Aki Japanese Restaurant1368 West Pender Street, Vancouver
Grilled Cod
Submitted Wednesday, December 31, 2008 - 7:31pm [Dine in]

The grilled cod is my favorite item although the wait can be 15mins as they grill it on the spot.

The service is always pleasant and they sometimes can be crowded. It has the feel of a secret place as it's not located on ground level.

For a restaurant in DT, the prices are not fancy expensive and a few dollars cheaper than Kamei Royale (1030 West georgia)

Red Chicken Korean Restaurant833 Bute St, Vancouver
Red chicken spicy wings on fire
Submitted Wednesday, December 31, 2008 - 7:26pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is famous for its "red chicken". I think it's called BULDAK $14.95. It is VERY VERY SPICY but very good. Had only their lunch special so far and at $6.95-7.95, it's pretty good. Don't expect lots of meat/vegetables if you order the lunch special soups. The soups are good especially during this cold season and it's never packed during lunch.

Tried so far:
Yukgaejang - spicy beef soup
Dakgaejang - spicy chicken soup
Sundubu-jjigae - spicy tofu soup with seafood, mushroom and beef (my Favorite)
Ppyeo Haejangguk - spicy pork neck soup with potatoes and vegetables

They have daily lunch special too, remember to ask them!

Location: Bute & Robson

Hawker's Delight4127 Main St., Vancouver
Singapore food at Canadian prices
Submitted Saturday, November 29, 2008 - 6:04pm [Dine in]

Well, I'm native Singaporean so eating at this place is good for my tummy. This is definitely not Malaysian style. It is 100% Singapore style. Mee Pok, Mee Siam, Mee Rebus. Yummy!!

Price wise, they are good value for money. Each portion is sufficient for one, and main plates are $4.75-5.95 each. Satay is 0.75 each and curry puff is 0.75 each.

For the price you pay, you get food served at your table. That's pretty solid!

Ok, let's talk about food. I had the Mee Soto (Ayam Soto). That is good. Flavorful soup with noodles & chicken meat. I also had the curry puff. Warm & a little curry hot. Oh man, where can I get curry puff for 0.75?? I notice almost everyone who ate there finished their food.

This place is almost authentic to Singapore's hawker food.

For those of you who ate with chopsticks, let me tell you something interesting. With the exception of Prawn noodle soup, Laksa & Mee Pok (dried noodle), every dish there is to be eaten with fork & spoon.

Mee Soto, Mee siam, mee rebus, mee goreng, tahu goreng, nasi goren are Malay food. Malay is not Malaysian so don't mix it up. But of course the Malay food has its roots from Malaysia (the country) but has formed its own taste in Singapore. Malays don't use chopsticks but fork & spoon, so that's why most dishes there are Malay style food. Ok, whatever rocks your boat! If you can use a pair of chopsticks, go for it!!

This place is opened 11-9pm, Mon-Sat. (Main St & King Edward)

This Pho is not like Pho
Submitted Sunday, August 31, 2008 - 11:15pm [Dine in]

The pho came out lukewarm, no basil leaves, such small portion and the soup tasted greasy. The beef tough. I will never go there again.

We had to remind the staff to refill our water, we have to flag them down (& all the patrons were sitting outside). It looked pretty ok from the outside but could do with some brighter lighting. If it wasn't for the outdoor patio, this place would have been gone.

Chilli Padi Restaurant5750 Fraser St., Vancouver
finally decent sambal
Submitted Sunday, August 31, 2008 - 11:04pm [Dine in]

I give it 4 for the sambal they used on the sambal mackeral. It tasted familiar. I grew up in Singapore, used to Singapore/Indonesian/Malaysian food, this restaurant reminds me of home. Ice Milo? bring it on. If this restaurant was in South East Asia & not in Vancouver, it would be only a decent meal, but this is Vancouver, thousands of miles away from home. And it was good enough for me.

I was there this evening with a friend, patrons seem lacking. I hope people go there to give this place a try. Also because there was just us, the service was pretty prompt. The ambience/decor could do with some sprucing up. The location could be a factor too (Fraser & 41st) for the lack of patrons. Between us we had, 12 satays (with cucumbers and ketupats), 1 plate of hae bi (dried shrimp) w long beans, sambal mackeral, teh tarik and longan drink and the bill was $40. Good value as we Singaporeans will travel anywhere for good food.

I will go there again just to try out the other items on the menu.
