Transylvania Flavour2120 West Broadway, Vancouver
Comfortable fine-dining
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

I only discovered Transylvania Flavour a few months ago, and have eaten there with great satisfaction several times, both lunch and dinner.

For dinner, the beef short ribs are tender and delicious, with creamy mashed potatoes and simple steamed veg. For lunch, the green bean salad is tasty, light but fulfilling, and can be ordered with chicken for a solid meal. My friend liked the perogies a lot, but I have yet to try them.

Borscht has been fresh and tasty each time I've had it; Desserts such as creme brulee, chocolate mouse, and pastry specials have all been divine. And this restaurant makes better coffee than any cafe I have -ever- visited.

As others have said, the cabbage rolls are incredible; they even put my grandma's cabbage rolls to shame.

The only dish I've tried and not enjoyed is the sausages; only as the spices were not to my taste.

Lunch menu is much more reasonably priced, with smaller (still plenty of food) portions.

Prices are in keeping with nicer places (~$25 for dinner entree), and the food is certainly of better quality than many others in the same price range.

Service is friendly and attentive; the owners have made me feel at home whether dining alone or with friends.

I have to say, I love the aesthetic of the place. It's rich, but not pretentious; golden yellow walls, earthy umber tiled floors, and purple draperies, with accents in metal, glass, and wood. A fresh flower and candle on the table are a pleasant touch.

I would certainly recommend this restaurant; It's not what I expected (no vampires), but it's really good.

Mazuya Sushi2355 Burrard Street, Vancouver
Fresh and Delicious
Submitted Monday, August 27, 2007 - 3:44pm [Dine in]

I've walked past this place for years, never giving it a second thought. Something seemed different last week when I went past, the place looked really appealing so I gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised.

It's a small space with attractive decoration, including a nice green color on the walls.

The waitress seemed sincerely hospitable. After asking a few questions, I discovered that the ownership and chef had very recently changed. Obviously a change for the best.

The tea was fresh and sweet.

I ordered the miso soup and the "Honda Roll" (a large house-special roll, of which there are several).

Presentation was attractive, with the sort of glazed ceramic dish you see at the more up-scale places.

The soup was made in-house (no powdered mix), reminded me of home-made. Simple but solid.

The roll contained tempura prawns among other things, with avocado and bbq eel on top. It was lightly drizzled with two house sauces and absolutely delicious.

I was most impressed by the freshness of the roll. The tempura was light, the prawns not overdone. There was obvious care in the preparation of my order.

I look forward to returning to Mazuya to sample the rest of their menu.
