Paul's Place Omelettery Restaurant2211 Granville St, Vancouver
Breakfast done right
Submitted Monday, February 25, 2013 - 4:10pm [Dine in]

A friend suggested this place for Saturday brunch and we went just this last weekend. There were 4 of us in total and we arrived before 11am so it wasn't too crowded, but it got really busy around noon, so go early or be prepared to wait.

Food: I ordered a pulled pork hash (special) and it was fantastic. It wasn't too greasy and there weren't too many potatoes to weigh it down. The cheese was a little cold when it was served, but I was busy feeding my daughter so the dish melted it just fine after a bit of mixing. The poached eggs on top were really delicious and tied it together well.

Service: It was quite busy, but my coffee remained full almost throughout the meal. The servers were attentive and accommodating (our baby was a little fussy).

Value: The prices are quite reasonable. Most of the breakfast dishes are around $6-10 (compared to breakfast/diner chains that run $8-13 per dish), and as mentioned above, the food was good.

Ambiance: It was busy and there was plenty of hustle and bustle. It's not a quiet romantic place by any means. There was nothing surprising about the ambiance.

I would definitely visit the Omelettery again, and I recommend it to friends.

Dona Cata Mexican Foods5076 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Authentic Mexican
Submitted Friday, March 18, 2011 - 11:38pm [Dine in]

Ambiance - Average. It feels homey, but as if a group of kids decorated it.

Servcie - Average. The establishment is small, so it's easy for the server(s) to keep on top of everything.

Value - Fantastic. $2 tacos. Beef, chicken or marinated pork. Nuff said. (cheese is 50 cents extra)

Food - Fantastic. Add your favourite salsa from the salsa bar (more than 5 choices) and you're set.

Highly recommended for small group (2-4 people). It's a bit small for larger groups.

(short review as I've had to re-type it three times...)

New Age5411 Kingsway, Burnaby
Always a Good Choice
Submitted Friday, March 18, 2011 - 11:03pm [Dine in]

New Age is one of the 'regulars' on my list of places to eat. The ambiance isn't bad. The restaurant is spacious and open and feels pretty clean. At times though, it can get a little noisy. The service is always pretty good. The servers are attentive and quick to respond. The best part is that the food always comes out extremely fast. A couple of times, my wife and I received all our dishes within 7 minutes of ordering during peak dinner hours.

The value is average to good. The dishes aren't very large and the prices aren't cheap. What makes up for it is that you get what you pay for when it comes to quality and taste. The food selection is a mix of Szechuan and Taiwanese dishes and the quality is always good. I've tried quite a number of dishes on the menu and I have never been disappointed.

I've been to New Age many times, with friends, with family, and we have always been happy and willing to return again.

Cattle Cafe4883 Kingsway, Unit B, Burnaby
Good Place for a Bowl of Noodles...and more
Submitted Friday, March 18, 2011 - 10:46pm [Dine in]

I've been to Cattle many times and I've never been disappointed.

The ambiance is just average (two-star rating) and is typical for most Chinese cafe-style restaurants.

The service is pretty average as well. If you've been to one Chinese cafe, you know what I mean.

The value is pretty solid as you get free hot tea and the meals are around $8. The most popular choice at Cattle is the noodle bowl. For just under $8, you select your soup base, your noodle, two items (eg. tofu puffs, beef brisket, fish slices, etc.), and any premium side items at an extra charge (eg. fried chicken wings, pork cutlet, etc.). The meals and noodle bowl all come with a hot drink, or a special drink for another $2. The special drinks include bubbleteas, smoothies, and shakes, which are all fairly large.

The food is good, if not better than the average Chinese cafe. I've tried a few flavours of their milkshakes, and they have all been good. Their mini-meals and their baked meals are all pretty decent, and their noodles are great. I've tried a few different soup bases, and my favourite is the Tom Yum soup. It's a bit tarte and spicy, so be forewarned (as not everyone may be accustomed to that).

Tea Team Bubble Tea4909 Kingsway, Burnaby
Good Neighbourhood Taiwanese Place
Submitted Friday, March 18, 2011 - 10:18pm [Dine in]

Tea Team is one of those restaurants that I keep in my back pocket whenever my wife and I need a place to eat. The ambiance is interesting to say the least, with the multi-coloured windows and popular Chinese music playing in the background. The service has always been average to good. Even when the place is full, it's never been bad, and when the place is near empty, the service isn't spectacular. Value-wise, it's pretty good, which is why there are aways quite a number of teenagers and young adults eating there. The prices are reasonable and the portions are good.

The food is always good, although I haven't exhausted the menu. Even though it is a bubbletea place, I find that some of their flavours taste overly artificial (made from powder). The drink sizes are pretty good, but they aren't cheap either. I enjoy the food far more than the drinks.

508 Bistro5507 Kingsway, Burnaby
Good Taiwanese Place for Good Eats and Bubbletea
Submitted Friday, March 18, 2011 - 9:46pm [Dine in]

My wife and I always see this place as we drive by on Kingsway, and we decided to finally try it out. The restaurant is spacious and the atmosphere is a little hard to pinpoint. Clearly, it used to be a lounge/bar. The service was average to good, as we had to flag down the servers whenever we needed them. The prices were average and comparable to others in its category. We ordered a bubbletea which was surprisingly better than a majority of establishments that specialize in making bubbletea. What makes this restaurant unique is their Taiwanese style to their dishes.

We ordered three dishes and an appetizer. The first was a stir-fry pork with chillies which was quite spicy and tasty. The second dish was a fried rice with dried shrimp. It too was pretty good and not too greasy the way most restaurants make fried rice. The third was the well-known 3 cup chicken. At first, I wasn't too excited about ordering it, but at 508 Bistro they make it with boneless chicken which wasn't drowned in sauce. Another good dish. Finally, our appetizer was the handmade beef roll (another common dish at Chinese restaurants). They use a thicker wrap than most places, but it was quite soft and fluffy. The beef was tender and it came with a delicious garlic dipping sauce. Instant favourite.

We are already planning on returning with my family (Taiwanese) as we were happily surprised at the quality of the food. As of the time of writing this review, the restaurant is open in the evenings only (until late, for those with midnight cravings), plus lunch on weekends (not weekdays).

Enjoy Cafe8171 Westminster Hwy, #200, Richmond
I miss E-Canteen
Submitted Sunday, February 20, 2011 - 2:12pm [Dine in]

This place used to be called E-Canteen. Back then, it was a place that I would go to a few times per month if I had the opportunity because the food was good, the service was good (as good as expected from a Chinese cafe), and the prices were good. I just ate here for the first time in a couple of months and the place has a new name and new employees. Enjoy Cafe is the new place and they changed quite a lot. Unfortunately the changes weren't for the better.

The menu has fewer items and everything is more expensive. The service took a big hit. Waiters and waitresses constantly brought drinks and food to the wrong tables over and over again. They got orders wrong and were totally confused. The food quality is about the same, although two of three orders of fried porkchop at our table were over-fried. The portions are now 10-20% smaller than before and all the prices are higher. To make matters worse, our food took about three times longer to arrive. We waited about 25 minutes for our orders. This is up from their 7-10 minutes before.

I'm sad to say that I won't be coming back here for a while.
