Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
If only my stomach was ....
Submitted Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 6:55am [Dine in]

A gloomy November evening... searching for a place to impress a date without breaking the bank, I settled on Guu with Garlic. What a magical place, located on the corner of Robson and some unimportant street, we popped in at around 10pm on a Friday and the place was bumping. It was packed so we sat at the bar, staff were great... Now for the food....

The menu is amazing, other than barley being able to read the hand writing on the paper menu's, ordered some beer that came in a huge pitcher which was nice.

Tuna Tataki- So moist and fresh, amazing.
Ebi Mayo - Words can't describe
Beef Udon- Oh ever so tasty

This is the best restaurant in Vancouver, the quality and price point is unbeatable. Its hilarious morons pay 4 times as much at places like Tojo's.

Charles Bar, The136 West Cordova, Vancouver
Overpriced Garbage
Submitted Sunday, September 12, 2010 - 7:07pm [Dine in]

I went here with a open mind. I live in the area and am all for cleaning the area up. I love what they are doing with the W2 and creating a community feel. I was hoping this bar was like that as well. Well it was quite the opposite. First off prices here were insane. Drinks were pretty much club prices, food was priced like a fin restaurant but was pub quality. Just because it looks like on a plate doesn't mean it is any good and be charged an insane price. The servers all had attitudes and seem to upset that I was not spending hundreds of dollars. I was hoping this place could be a a local neighborhood hang out, it is just a cess pool of predaciousness.

Food Taste Good
Submitted Wednesday, September 8, 2010 - 2:44am [Dine in]

This place is new, it is along the Granville strip and is owned by the same people that run the "famous" Warehouse. All the food is under 10 bucks. They have a 16 ounce steak for 9.95 or something. I had a 10 ounce Kobe Burger with a ton of fries for 8.95. It was pretty dank, way cheaper and just as good as anything else in the are. All in all I was surprised, good food, pretty cheap all things considered, nice bar, service was good. Check it out.

Shine Cafe1548 Fort St, Victoria
Nice Brunch
Submitted Tuesday, August 17, 2010 - 5:19am [Dine in]

30 degrees out on a balmy August morning and our party found this place as it next to our new apartment. Interesting location, and had to wait to sit outside, as I was interested in being steamed cooked inside. I ordered the "Canadian" Benny and it was good. I like how they asked if how I wanted my Egg hard or soft, as some places don't...... cough "floyds" cough. All in all the food was pretty good, nothing amazing though, it is nice to sit outside and the service was friendly and non pretentious which I like. All in All though I rather go to John's Place!

Submitted Thursday, May 6, 2010 - 1:08pm [Dine in]

Casually stumbling down Granville street...Alcohol induced hunger setting in, stomach growling like a bulimic tiger... this can't go on any longer this writer says to himself. Then the culinary gods align and bless us with what is known as "late night" chinese food, right in the heart of the city. Our group enters 8 deep at around 3am and are seated immediately. The atmosphere is electric with fellow (mostly intoxicated) city goers all stuffing their face in the MSG extravaganza. From the chicken balls, Sweet and Sour Pork, Corn and Chicken Soup....to the lukewarm tea, they all hit the spot. Additional entertainment was provided by a couple of numbskulls who decided that this was the right setting to settle their differences over what was probably who was gonna have to sleep on the bottom bunk that night... The staff quickly broke it up with a look of amusement on their face... I take it they are use to this sort of thing. Looking back, is there a better way to end your night other than at a table at 3am with close friends, stuffing your face with good chinese food while being obnoxiously loud? I think not.

Sushi Town1227 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
For The Love of Sashimi!
Submitted Thursday, April 29, 2010 - 6:52pm [Dine in]

Monstrous, Mind blowing, Breathtaking, $7.85.... All ways to describe their Spicy Salmon Sashimi. Never on my time on earth have I ever been so full from eating Japanese food after eating about 2/3rds of this dish, and I didn't even touch any rice. I don't know how they do it, but for 8 bucks, you get pretty much half of a full fish, drizzled in delicious spicy sauce, mixed in with slices of cucumber and those stringy white things which are tasty as well. In other restaurants, not even high quality ones, this would go for around 20 dollars. I also had the the Gomaee it was pretty good, spider roll was good, presented beautify and cheap as well. Ambience looked like a cactus club... very impressed. Will be returning weekly

Hon's Wun Tun House1339 Robson Street, Vancouver
Late Night Delight
Submitted Friday, March 5, 2010 - 6:50am [Dine in]

Coming through robson after a catching Shutter Island(4 stars), Our group settled on Hon's as it sure as hell beats most of the stuff you can get at this time. Strolled in around 11:30, place was pretty empty. Was served some Tea right away, ended up ordering a beef soup with noodles, forget what it was called but it was only 5.95. Came out in a couple minutes and hit the spot. Also tried some potstickers which were good and cheap as well. People reviewing this place need to get with reality and not expect some 5 star service. Hon's provides a huge menu of chinese food for dirt cheap prices, along with being open late. All in all can't really ask for much more!

Submitted Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 6:50pm [Dine in]

Eggs benny was ordered, was pretty good. Place was packed on a late sunday, also got a smoothie. Was disappointed for the size of it as it was 4 bucks and pretty tiny. THey had a ton of eggs benny flavors. I think johns place does it better though. The hashbrowns were ok, i like the cube sized ones more though. All in all this place is pretty good, good food for a decent price, but can add up.

New Town Bakery & Restaurant148 E Pender Street, Vancouver
2 minutes of goodness
Submitted Thursday, January 28, 2010 - 1:42am [Dine in]

Newtown bakery; a location favorite nestled in the heart of historic chinatown was the destination for a late afternoon snack. Serving a varied of baked goods and dim sum items, one can have it all at this bakery. But lets get serious, I was here for reason and one reason only, and that was their famous "Steam Bun". These suckers are made right in front of your eyes, coming in a variety of flavors, from salty and saviour pork, to sweet and sugary black bean paste and of course lotus. I went for the black bean bun and was not disappointed. Right out of the steamer, the dough is so soft and fluffy for the first couple minutes that.. well really words can not describe. This caused me to finish mine in around 2 minutes. I took 2 home and ate them later, and they were not nearly as good as they were fresh. I also got some "new moon pies" in red bean flavor and they were great as well. Oh yeah and my bill was around 5 bucks for all this!

Lazy Sunday Delight
Submitted Monday, January 18, 2010 - 3:36am [Dine in]

3pm on a brisk saturday on a rare sunny january day I arrived at John's Place. A long night at the bar the day before had one's stomach aching for some greasy goodness. A pon arriving one sees the selection of Pie's and Cakes; which I will get to later.... along with the humorous decor that scatters the wall of this local favorite. Before ordered the waitress gave us some warm and fluffy bread and butter snack on, it was delicious but filled me up to much, nice touch though. I decided to indulged in "the classic" eggs Benedict for $9.95. It came out huge served on a english muffin. Eggs done to perfection where dipping my crispy hash browns into the running yokes made for magic. I finished the meal off quickly and moved on to desert. After starring at the cakes and pies on display for around 5 minutes i decided to order the apple pie. It was heated up and served with ice cream. It had an apple crumble like top, and was an out of body experience. When reflecting on my visit to Jon's I can see how this place is a hit. I have never met Jon himself, but if I did I would tell him he has one heck of a diner!

Sen Sushi1855 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver
A True Hidden Gem of the North Shore
Submitted Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 11:51am [Dine in]

Sen Sushi is a small Sushi Joint Located on the ever crowded lonsdale strip. It is a true "hole in the wall" place, which is pretty hard to see from driving by. It is ironically located right beside a giant sushi restaurant called Sushi Katsu which is around 6 times the size of it!!! Sen Sushi though is truly a hidden gem, with unbelievable prices. One of the cheaper sushi places I know, yet one of the best. Their gomaee is great, serve fresh sashimi, have creative rolls, great combos, great party trays as well! Only a couple tables, most of their business is take out, but still a nice place to eat in. It is run by a Wife and Husband who are very nice and like to get to know their customers. All in all Sen Sushi is a great little place that has the perfect mix of affordability and quality. Check it out you will be truly surprised!

Went here for dinner last week. Place was not bad at all. Order Chicken and Shrimp Vermicelli bowl...pretty hard to mess up, tasted fresh and good, price was around 9 dollars I believe. Friend ordered some rice bowl it was huge and good. Other people food looked very good as well, prices were pretty cheap, staff were nice, place was clean. Good option!

Ika Sushi965 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Best Cheap Sushi Combo In Vancouver
Submitted Tuesday, November 3, 2009 - 1:36am [Dine in]

Ika Sushi is a small sushi joint located right before cap mall off marine drive. Kind of hidden and in a funny location... this place delivers!!! 6.95 for there "18 piece sushi special". Now unlike most places they give you a list of around 15 different rolls to choose from, and will even let you create your own, for example I requested a salmon avocado roll which they made no extra charge. Other favorites from this list are the tuna tempura and salmon tempura rolls which are huge and tasty. Service is great, prices are cheap, food is very good. Its my go to cheap sushi place on the north shore. It is MUCH BETTER than yuko maki. Defiantly worth a visit.

Yanaki1449 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Death By Gomae
Submitted Thursday, October 22, 2009 - 5:01pm [Dine in]

Yanaki is a VERY small sushi spot located on marine drive in west vancouver between 14th and 15th. This place is SMALL but never the less out standing. Prices here are about average... You can find cheaper sushi on the north shore but Yanaki's price to quality ratio is unbeatable. I started off with the spinach gomae, as I do everytime I eat Japanese. I have proboley have had over 150 different gomaes from around vancouver and this is BY FAR the best Gomae known to man kind... well at least in Vancouver. It is made in house and the recipe was probably handed down from god himself. I then grabbed an appetizer sashimi which came with 2 tuna, 2 salmon and 2 red snapper pieces. Fish was fresh and a great deal at $6.95 . Finished up my meal with dynamite roll which was $4.95, was very tasty, large and beautifully presented. All in all Yanaki is probooely the best sushi place in West Van. Don't be scammed by overpriced places like Zen and so forth.... this small place as the fish game on lock.

Boom Goes the Dynamite
Submitted Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 3:50am [Dine in]

730pm on a saturday night, the sky dumping tears over vancouver I arrived at Phnom Penh. The place was packed, a host quickly took our name and we were seated in a couple minutes. The menu feeling like a small novel loaded with culinary chapters had many choices. I settled on the number 6, It was 2 types of noodles(egg and rice) with beef chicken prawns vegis and a soup. Also ordered this red bean ice jelly drink that was simply orgasmic. The food came out in around 5 minutes which is unbelievable for how busy this place was. This place knows what its doing and does it well. A authentic taste of the far east at a great price makes this marver a happy camper. Bill came to 12 dollars before tip, I was stuffed and happy. A true gem.
