Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant3888 Main Street, Vancouver
Solid dim sum
Submitted Friday, January 8, 2010 - 6:58pm [Dine in]

Came here on Friday morning, no need to fight for seating -was seated right away. Orders were taken on bubble sheet - school examination dejavu, however this made sure that food were hot and made to order. We ordered Tiquanyuan tea, it was strong, which i loved, it tasted like a quality aged tea and not like watered down yellow water at other places. We ordered 9 dishes for 2 which was more than enough. The usual fanfare were ordered: Sui ma, beef meatballs, beef rice rolls, rice rolls with Chinese doughnut,chicken feet - these were all pretty average, nothing that stood out. We also ordered beef tendon & tripe, the tendon was good, however the tripe tasted rubbery. The most unique dish was definitely the mango pancake(crepes). I don't know about anyone else but fresh cream and mangoes for breakfast is a definite plus for me.

Sushi Garden4635 Kingsway, Burnaby
Fresh food,
Submitted Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 7:26pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is like Japanese assembly line; This is not a bad thing. The seafood is fresh, the service is quick, ordered and served in under 5 minutes. Portions are generous and very worthy of the prices they charge. Expect long lines during the height of dinner and lunch times especially weekends.

Great RaMen!
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2009 - 8:52am [Dine in]

Less crowded than Kintaro and the RaMen is just as good. The service and ambiance is also noticably better. I recommend the Shio for it's subtle but flavourful pork goodyness! I don't know how much pork bones they use in the brother, but it pacts a flavour punch. The Gyoza is nothing special, just solid. Just go for the RaMen and maybe the extra sides.

Chau Kitchen & Bar1500 Robson Street, Vancouver
MSG Overload
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2009 - 8:39am [Dine in]

My first visit was almost a year ago, that was when the place still trying work out the kinks but the food was fresh and simple. So I decided to give it second visit recently. They added alot more dishes inluding Pho, which I ordered. And Wow you will need 4 glasses of water to finish the noodles. The short ribs was also marinated in MSG. For a resturant trying to be Modern, using MSG is just backwards. $25 for bowl of MSG and a plate of MSG. hmmm.....

A year later and the fresh and simple flavours from my first visit was washed a way with 4 glasse of water.

The only upside is that service has improved dramatically since last time.

Pho Tan Vietnamese Restaurant4598 Main Street, Vancouver
Non-Pretentious Tastiness
Submitted Friday, June 5, 2009 - 8:28am [Dine in]

Great bowl of Pho as well as other traditional vietnamese dishes -not found at "just pho restaurants". MSG in soup, as expected, but does leave overly dry mouth feeling. Decor is simple and clean -no neon signs in sight. Prices are good. Outside needs a few cosmetic fix ups. Overally I will come back for the pho alone.

Zipang Sushi3710 Main Street, Vancouver
Fresh and Value!
Submitted Wednesday, June 3, 2009 - 3:16am [Dine in]

Went here on Sunday night, and had some amazing sushi. The menu has the usual rolls: cali, bc, dynamite, as well as some unique ones like the zipang roll. Their cali roll are made from fresh crab meat - very tasty. They also have alot other dishes like jap 'pizzas'. Plus they don't serve the steroid Farmed Salmon, only BC Wild Sockeye! Tea was refilled promptly and the ambiance has the hip main street flair.

Kirin Mandarin Restaurant1172 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Best chinese food downtown.
Submitted Tuesday, June 2, 2009 - 3:38am [Dine in]

Service always fast and courteous, just a knotch below since we have to wave a server down. However, they are never too far or too few. Food is greasy and msg per usual, but ingredients and dishes platting is amazing and very creative. I love their fresh alaskan crab spot prawns, it was melt in your mouth fantastic.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The1499 Anderson St., Vancouver
Good service, good food
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 8:40pm [Dine in]

Order ahi tuna appeitizer and prime rib, but the server informed me both were sold out, but offered a free entree of any choie. Which was a nice surprise. I had the rib eye, which was juicey and cooked to medium rare perfection. The dark ambiance was calming and soothing - fitting for something who just had a 9oz steak. Solid service and food.

Duffin's Donuts1391 41st Avenue East, Vancouver
Disgusting Establishment
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

I bought a doughnut that was never to be forgotten - Not in a good way. I bought a powder rasberry filling and the doughnut was stale and there were pieces of sand or dirt in the jelly. I should of went with my first instincts to walk out, cause any place that sells cigarettes right behind the doughnut stand should not be trusted. Plus, they were selling everything including: chinese food, combodian food, vietnamese food, bean desserts, ice cream, fried chicken, sub sandwiches, custards... and it seems like all of theses foods have been sitting for 1 week min. NEver NEver NEver Again!

Excellent Dim Sum - Just go before 10am!
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 8:22pm [Dine in]

Heard abot the wait times at this restaurant so we went to early in the morning at around 9:30am and got a seat righ away. The Dim Sum is excellent, no filler items. Generous size har gow you can actually pick up with your chopsticks - not that over steamed fake shrimp mush other places serve. They also have alot of unique deserts that other dim sum places don't have - like the pan fried sweet sticky rice cake with chestnut filling. Everything came at the same time, no slow drickle of food. It really felt like a dim sum feast with all the dishes on the table at the same time.

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Stretching the Dollar
Submitted Sunday, December 14, 2008 - 8:10pm [Dine in]

Food is regular, nothing extraordinary, except cheap prices compared to other westend restaurants. Decor and cleanseness on the other hand, was just Nasty. Very retro 90's vibe, which I don't mind. But the cutlery with degreaser stains was just gross and I don't even bother using the washroom; it's a nightmare - only two single person washroom, one per sex. Stepping into the washroom was like walking into hell. The food nor the price does not justify dining a dumpster.
