Koi Japanese Tapas630 Kingsway, Vancouver
You gotta check it out!
Submitted Wednesday, August 17, 2011 - 8:54pm [Dine in]

Super nummy and inventive sushi. Definitely not your bog standard fare. We sampled a number of the rolls, kimchi udon, gomae, and seared mackerel. Everything was beautifully prepared and very good value. Small space so get there early! They have a good liquour menu as well.We will do the take out next time and see how that is. Two thumbs way up!

Ganache Patisserie1262 Homer Street, Vancouver
Not impressed
Submitted Sunday, April 24, 2011 - 5:24pm [Dine in]

We stopped by on Good Friday for a cup of tea and a piece of cake. There was only one server working and it was quite busy. The tea was good quality and we were happy with that. We ordered two cakes and neither of us were that impressed. The Framboise cake was not very "cakey" but more "moussy". I like my cake to be a cake and not a mousse so that didn't go over very well. My friend wasn't overly impressed with her cake either. That being said I'm sure that this type of sweet would be enjoyed by many people. My main complaint with the shop is how dirty and dusty it is. There is a coffee table that they have their photo albums on. The bottom tier was covered in dust. The window displays of cakes had cobwebs on them. The ceiling pipes and light fixtures were also covered in dust/cobwebs. I'm not sure why the owner would concentrate on making great cakes and leave the front of house in dissaray. It definitely needs a clean and a tidy. We had thought about getting a wedding cake from there but I don't think that will be happening.

Red Wagon, The2296 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Great new neighbourhood joint
Submitted Tuesday, March 29, 2011 - 7:07pm [Dine in]

We live just about the road from the restaurant. We have eaten breakfast there a few times and stopped in for dinner tonight. They usually close at 6:00 pm so generally we don't get there in time. The waitress told us that they just got the okay to open later so next week they will have more civilized hours. Tonight I had the portobello mushroom sandwich which was super yummy. My partner had the portobello soup (nummy) and the Cobb salad. She enjoyed both of them very much. The music (Johnny Cash) was cute and the service very attentive. My one suggestion to the restaurant is they need to do something with the front door. It is a single door into the cafe. So in crappy weather every time the door opens cold air whooshes in. Each time I've eaten there I wear my jacket indoors. Perhaps it is just me being a delicate flower? In any case we are very happy to have the Red Wagon open for business in our neighbourhood. We will be back many times I am sure!

Japa DogCorner of Burrard and Smithe, Vancouver
best hotdog ever!
Submitted Monday, March 28, 2011 - 4:48pm [Take-out]

I've passed by here many times and never tried anything. But on the weekend I was feeling adventurous and tired the Veggie terimayo dog. It blew me away. So different and interesting. Definitely better than your typical "costco" or regular street vendor dog. The flavours were fabulous and devoured it! I will absolutely come back and I might try another type....but I think it might be the terimayo again because it was so good!

Leeteg Room, The1489 East Hastings, Vancouver
A nice find
Submitted Saturday, March 26, 2011 - 9:30pm [Dine in]

Stumbled across this as we tried to eat at Nuba but they were booked solid. We had taken a chance and walked over on a Saturday night. Of course Nuba was full with a wait of over an hour! But they seated us right away at Leeteg. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service was. We had two great ciders (from England and Ireland) and then shared four items from the Tapas menu. The bread was very nice and we both enjoyed the variety of food. We were shocked at how quickly the food arrived at our table.....especially as the restaurant was quite full. We shared a nice dessert (molten chocolate lava cake) and it was very nice. Our bill was 78 bucks and we will definitely return.

Grub4328 Main Street, Vancouver
I like Grub!
Submitted Sunday, June 29, 2008 - 8:29pm [Dine in]

My friend and I found this cute place by accident one evening while shopping on Main street. The ambience and decor is very nice, minimalist but cozy. The funky wall paper is very interesting....I wonder where they found it.

My friend and I thought the cocktails were very inventive and yummy. We loved the bread appetizer with various dips. The bread was very well made and combined with the chipotle butter whetted our appetite for more.

We had salads for our main course. Mine was the seafood with lots of fresh greens, smoked trout, salmon, and prawns. It also had pine nuts and strawberries. The portion size is very generous.

We finished with the lemon brulle tart and coffee. The tart was very tart and lemony....nice! Sometimes the lemon in deserts is more sugary than lemony and this was a nice surprise.

All in all we enjoyed ourselves and will definately return. The meals are very modestly priced, portions are large and the fresh menu is inventive with something for everyone....even those raw food lovers.

Salade de Fruits Cafe1551 West 7th Avenue, Vancouver
A gem!
Submitted Wednesday, May 24, 2006 - 9:52pm [Dine in]

My friend and I had a lovely dinner here this evening. I had been here a couple of time previously for brunch. My sister had told me how great the food was for dinner.....and we were not disappointed.

We were seated in the "corridor" as we did not have reservations. The host was personable and welcoming. A lovely french baguette was given to nosh on while we viewed the menu. The wine list consisted of "red or white", which takes the guess work out of ordering!

The appetizers were lovely (carrot soup and warm goat cheese salad). The main courses were even better (salmon in a butter/cream sauce and rack of lamb). We shared a desert (ganache cake) with our coffee. The tab came to about $70 (including tip) for appys, main courses, two glasses of wine, coffee and desert.

We will definately come again to this little gem. Bon Appetit!
