Village Sushi Bar13020 No.2 Road, #150, Richmond
Fresh!
Submitted Tuesday, December 22, 2009 - 2:41am [Dine in]

My friend took me to this neighborhood sushi joint.

Food: Sashimi is very fresh. Even though the menu is small but sashimi is very good quality. Some of my favorite sushi joints have gone downhill and use low quality fish (like frozen surf clam or whatever). So it's time to move on and I am really glad I found this little place serving good sushi.

Service: Very friendly husband and wife team.

Value: I think the price is reasonable for the good quality fish.

Ambiance: The place is small but clean and well heated. There's only few tables but the good thing is the tables are not too close to each other. It's small but not cramped because they don't try to fit in loads of tables in the room. I like that! You can still have your space and some privacy. That's very important to me because I hate to dine in a cramped place while dining out. Anyway, it's still comfortable to dine in here regardless it's small.

I would treat this restaurant more like a take out place during winter because it is on a quiet street and it's dark outside. When weather gets better and you get more day light around 6pm and human activity on the street (people taking a walk or biking), I wouldn't mind sitting in.

If you are in the neighborhood, it's definitely a good buy. It's better than those lame over priced restaurants (tourist traps) in Steveston. Steveston is full of tourist traps but this sushi bar definitely serves decent food.

Mazazu Crepe4400 Hazelbridge Way, Unit 3110, Richmond
Nice
Submitted Monday, December 21, 2009 - 4:00pm [Dine in]

Food: The crepe is freshly made. The creme on the crepe is light and fresh. It tastes very good.

Service: I like these friendly Japanese staffers. They are also very well staffed, I could count at least 8 people working there. Even though there is a line because its grand opening is drawing curious crowd, but the line moves pretty fast. From waiting in line to order to getting your crepe, it takes 10 minutes. That's pretty good considering there is a line and the crepe is made fresh right in front of you.

It's certainly faster than Beard Papa's grand opening. You would think they pre-bake a batch of puff shell at Beard Papa's, it should be faster because all they need is to inject creme in the puff. But since there's only 2 to 3 staffers working at Beard Papa each hour, it's pretty slow when they have a line.

Anyway, I am very happy about the service. Very smooth transaction, no pain.

Value: It is cheaper than Cafe Crepe (tourist trap). Mazazu Crepe is from $3.19 to $5.43, depending on what topping(filling) you want. They are all the same size, just different toppings. At Cafe Crepe, I remember it's 5 dollars for a basic plain crepe with just a thin layer of Nutella.

Keep in mind that this is more like a snack or dessert. It won't fill you up if you are very hungry. You need to eat your main meal before you get your crepe. So is it a good value to spend 3 dollar something to 5 dollar something for a take out dessert? I will leave that to you. It's up to you. I think the value is good because it's better priced than its' competitors and the products & service are better.

Ambiance: The store is in a clean spacious food court. I don't mind this food court because it's clean and big. It's spacious, you don't rub shoulders with anybody when you walk around. There's plenty of daylight during the day and it is well lit at night. It's not a romantic spot, ok. But you are definitely not suffering.

It certainly beats Cafe Crepe any time, I remember I had to wait for a long time at Cafe Crepe's small cramped store for a lousy crepe to go (there's hardly a place to stand comfortably), there was only 3 people in front of me. I still waited miserably like those folks waiting for flu shot or something, so pathetic.

I hope Mazazu Crepe kicks lame Cafe Crepe out of competition. I think this Crepe chain will succeed here because its' better price, products, and great service. I also hope they won't sell franchise to some mediocre like the Beard Papa's Richmond Centre branch. The Richmond Centre Beard Papa's has mediocre service, unlike the one in Aberdeen Centre. I love the friendly service at their Aberdeen Centre store but the other location kind of ruins Beard Papa brand.

More expensive than buying from other locations
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - 9:50pm [Dine in]

Just to let you know that it's more expensive to buy in the mall than other Beard Papa's locations AS IF it's not overpriced enough.

The cream puffs basically tastes the same as the ones from Aberdeen Centre but the service is really bad here. They are kind of impolite. They look like they are irritated, bored, and tired of doing their jobs. Basically, they look like annoyed stepmothers. The staffers at Richmond Centre Beard Papa's are not as polite as the ones working at Aberdeen food court, not even close.

They even go cheap on giving people take out bags. They just give you each cream puff with tissue wrapped around it. They are like forcing you to eat right there. What kind of service is that? They don't even give you an option to take it somewhere else. They charge you couple of dimes more for a cream puff than other locations but they can't give you a bag? You can't walk around in the mall with cream puffs on hand, can you? The store location is not in the food court, so you have to take the cream puff and walk all the way to the food court to find a seat. How stupid does that look? Who enjoys eating cream puff while walking or standing around? You will get cream all over the place. Can't they at least give people a bag so they can carry the puff around to find a seat and go buy a drink to eat with the puff. That's common sense, for God's sake! Business is supposed to sell customers convenience.

Beard Papa's staffers at Abderdeen Centre always package your cream puff in a paper bag. You don't need to ask for it. They don't care if you just buy one or two. They put the cream puff in a bag. That's called being professional.

best Taiwanese chicken nuggets in town
Submitted Thursday, November 5, 2009 - 5:55pm [Dine in]

I think they might have the best Taiwanese chicken nuggets in town. It is so good and it's boneless. Yummy! I will definitely go back for more.

Service is very friendly. Price is fair. It costs a little less than most Taiwanese restaurants but most Taiwanese restaurants, like bubble tea cafes, have better interior decoration.

The decor could be better. If they just fix the interior a little, they would attract more customers. It's a small place, it shouldn't cost much to beautify it a little.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
B+ ramen
Submitted Saturday, October 31, 2009 - 1:46pm [Dine in]

Food: It tastes pretty good. It is authentic and doesn't taste like Chinese ramen if you know what I mean. The texture of the noodles is very good. It's al dente like Italians say about their pasta. There's 3 big thick pieces of pork in the bowl. Meat is very tender. Unlike other cheapskate restaurants in this city, Kintaro is very generous when it comes to portion and toppings. The only thing I notice is that the broth can be greasier than ramen from other Japanese restaurants in major US cities. I always thought Japanese food is not greasy, at least that's what Japanese food is like in major US cities. Nevertheless, it's still yummy.

Service: They are polite. Service is fast enough.

Value: I only rated 3 because the seating situation is so bad. You will know why when you read the following.

Ambiance: Ugh! The store is very cramped. You either sit at the bar or share table with bunch of strangers. Talking about awkward. You better pray you don't sit next to some nosy jerks eavesdropping your conversation or rude weirdos staring at you like they never know what etiquette means.

Because the store is so small. They can only accommodate a few customers. As soon as you put down chopsticks, they give you a check hinting you to pay and leave ASAP. You certainly have to leave right away because there are bunch of customers standing there waiting. Sitting there for more than 2 minutes after putting down chopsticks will make you the public enemy. LOL!

I am never that kind of person who likes to hang out in the restaurant. I finish my meal and I leave. But being rushed and hurried to leave is kind of abusive. I don't think sitting there for extra 5 minutes after you finish you meal is asking too much. Frankly, I don't think anybody wants to sit in a dirty restaurant for too long. But you need to digest your food and drink some water or tea by sitting there for just a few minutes more, don't you?

The store is kind of dirty. It's cramped. And you have to share tables. That really makes dining experience unpleasant. It doesn't have the best location anyway. Kintaro Ramen is already famous. I don't see why they can't move to somewhere bigger and more comfortable. They can get a bigger room at the same price or cheaper since this location is not exactly a hot spot.

Will I come back?
If I am in the area and I don't have to wait in line.

Is it worthy waiting in line?
Not really. It tastes good but it's not so freaking good to makes you think it's crack. It's not "addictive" good. And the seating situation is very abusive. I would not line up and bend over backward for that.

Unlike major US cities with a lot of Japanese living there, Vancouver doesn't have big Japanese population and many Japanese restaurants operated by Japanese. In other words, there's not a lot of competition for Kintaro. It can easily rank as top 3 ramen in Vancouver.

so so
Submitted Sunday, October 25, 2009 - 2:07am [Dine in]

They only sell takoyaki. If you are only selling one thing, you should master it in terms of taste and efficiency.

It tastes authentic and good enough, but nothing especially. It's just another takoyaki covered with Japanese sauces. It tastes like any other takoyaki except it's a a huge ball instead of several small balls. I think the big ball shape might be the reason they cook so slow. It is not efficient at all. It's a long wait to get your tacoyaki even though there's just one or two people in front of you. That can turn you off and make you less motivated to go back.

I actually don't mind it's in a parking lot because you don't have to worry about parking at all. LOL! Yes, free parking and plenty of space. Why not! The parking lot is clean and spacious. I find it quite relaxing to be there but I do mind the slow cooking time.

There is no point making it a giant ball if it takes much longer to cook through. I don't think customers care about the shape. I think they care about the taste and price. 5 bucks for a street snack that doesn't keep you full is kind of pricey. When I spend 4 to 5 bucks for a hot dog in downtown, I do get full. But this ball doesn't make me full.

Cafe D'Lite Express4151 Hazelbridge Way, Unit 3210, Richmond
This is the worst Hainan chicken I ever had
Submitted Sunday, October 25, 2009 - 1:32am [Dine in]

Before Cafe D'Lite Express started in this food court, there was also a Hainan chicken vendor at the exact same location. They had very decent Hainan chicken. So I thought maybe it's the same thing except it's a different owner now. Big mistake!

I have to say Cafe D'Lite has the worst Hainan chicken ever. How can they screw up Hainan chicken??? It's their main product.

There's not a lot of chicken in the dish, just a few small pieces. The rice is very dry, it tastes like left over rice. Also the rice doesn't taste like it's cooked in chicken broth, it just doesn't have a lot of flavor. The dipping sauce is weak and not authentic, they cut corner on the sauce. And the pickles are just few slices of sad cucumber. That's about it. The worst part is the soup. The soup is lukewarm and not clear. I am not sure why the soup is cloudy. I can taste the power-ish cloudy thing in the soup. It's like white dirt in the soup. I don't want to touch the soup again. Hainan chicken is usually served cold. But the soup should be piping hot. They can't even make hot soup?

The service is so so. I don't see a lot of value in this meal. You can certainly find better values from other vendors in this food court.

I also had their laksa and beef curry two months ago. I didn't like those dishes that much because they were too greasy. I couldn't care less for the laksa, it was very bland. I thought the flavor of beef curry was ok but it was so greasy. You could easily get oil on your hands and everywhere. Yup! It's that greasy.

I won't give this vendor a third chance.

too few options
Submitted Thursday, October 22, 2009 - 1:56am [Dine in]

The ramen is good but not waiting in line good. I don't mind going there during less busy hours. I certainly wouldn't wait in line for a long time for that. It's not worth it. If there are two groups in front of me on a "not raining" day, it's OK. More than two groups (two tables of people), I would go to other restaurants.

I like it because it's more authentic and doesn't taste like Chinese ramen, if you know what I mean. But there are certainly many flaws discouraging me to go there more often.

Food: Authentic but only two choices of ramen. That's ridiculous. Don't you think? I have been to so many Japanese ramen shops in LA. Never have seen a menu that small. No matter how small the restaurants are, how small time they are, those mom and pop shops in LA give you many options.

Portion is small for men. It's enough for skinny girls. Taste is good enough. Toppings are all right.

Service: They are polite enough. No attitude and no mistakes.

Value: It's so so.

Ambiance: It's cozy for a small noodle shop. It has some decor to keep the Japanese theme going. It's clean. I like the display of the bike.

However, I figure out there's always a line during peak hour is because the shop is too small. It can only accommodate that many people. Of course you have to line up to get in. Maybe they should move to a bigger location?

It's a great takeout place
Submitted Sunday, August 2, 2009 - 2:08pm [Dine in]

I see this place as a great takeout restaurant. Food is decent and tasty. Portion is big, it is good value.

Service is friendly enough but slow sometimes, even though it's not that busy.

I never dine in the restaurant because it looks dingy, it's kind of depressing. With the same amount of money, you can sit in a clean and very comfortable restaurant with decent decor in Richmond. Who doesn't like that? But this place is totally worth it for takeout.

uncomfortable dining
Submitted Sunday, July 19, 2009 - 9:03pm [Dine in]

Service was slow. There's not a lot of customers at the time. No more than 5. It still took a long time for me to wait for my food.

The restaurant is very small, cramped, and a little dirty. I didn't feel comfortable sitting inside. I had to order take out instead.

I ordered wrap. It tasted pretty good. Good enough. The portion was on the small side, I was still hungry after that.

For a restaurant that is too uncomfortable to sit inside, the price is on the high side. Because it's basically like a take out joint. It should be cheaper. And I absolutely can't stand sitting inside that restaurant. It feels like an abuse. A fast food joint has more comfortable sitting than this place.

Well Tea4811 Hazelbridge Way, Unit 170, Richmond
not as good as the reviews say
Submitted Sunday, July 19, 2009 - 8:34pm [Dine in]

I read the reviews here. I thought it was going to be a well decorated store with good food. I have to say I was a little bit disappointed.

The store does have some design but not as good as the reviews say. It's decent but not cool or nice looking. The pictures on the website look way better than the store really looks like.

Service is better than I expected. The lady was kind and patient that day. I really appreciate her good service.

Now let's talk about the food. It's hits and misses really. My bubble tea was bad, the little jelly like balls were very hard. I don't know if they were undercooked, or left there for too long. Maybe the staff left the balls in the fridge and they hardened. The other drink is OK, average. Appetizer and noodle dishes were average. Nothing to rave about. I just can't pass that they made really bad bubble tea that day. I mean bubble tea is their specialty/main attraction, how could they screw up?

I don't think they have best or one of the best foods among bubble tea restaurants. The place is popular because it opens late and it DOESN'T look run down or depressing like other late night joints. It's pleasant enough to go there and grab some snack at 11PM. The food is so so but where else can you go at 12:00AM or 1:00AM in the morning without getting a cringe or depressed by the creepy looking interior most stores have.

Would I go back? Yes, I would go back when I want to eat during late night. If it's still early, all other restaurants are open, Well Tea would not be my choice because I want something that tastes better.

Michele Cake Shop6033 West Boulevard, Vancouver
I like the bread
Submitted Friday, March 20, 2009 - 11:21pm [Dine in]

I am glad there's one decent bakery in Vancouver West. The price is inexpensive for Kerrisdale location so it's crowded most of the time. I kind of like those Asian style bread and buns because they come in different flavors already and you don't need any bread spread or filling for the bread. It's good for snacking.

However, if I lived in Richmond, Michelle's Cake Shop would probably not be my choice. There's so many bakeries in Richmond with many varieties of product and reasonable pricing. And for most of them you don't really have to beat the crowd like you are in Michell's. Anyway, Michelle's doesn't exactly stand out among them.

The service is so so. Some staff are grouchy some are ok, it really depends on your luck.

Ambiance? Well, you just buy and go. There's not much room to stand there. At least it's clean enough.

I never bought a birthday cake there. I don't know if it's good for the price you pay. I usually get bread, buns and egg tarts.

Too easy to recreate at home
Submitted Saturday, February 14, 2009 - 5:02am [Dine in]

Don't get me wrong. It doesn't taste bad at all. It's good. It's just too easy to recreate at home so I don't really rave about it.

First of all, it is just a hot dog. You all know how to heat a hot dog at home, you choose the way you like. Second, if you eat a lot of Japanese food made by Japanese in the past, you all know what it should taste like and what goes in there, you know what typical condiments Japanese use and you find the exact sauces (Japanese brands) in the Asian supermarket. You will find the seaweed topping too. Now you see how easy to do it at home. That's why I don't see the point to go back again.

Price is a a bit high for just a hot dog. But again all the hot dog stands in Vancouver downtown charge that price. Yes, it's expensive for a hot dog on the street but it's not more expensive than other hot dog stands. In LA, hot dog on the street is never more than 3 bucks because it's a street vendor. It could be the high tax environment in Canada or aiming tourists in downtown. They always price higher in tourist spots.

Very friendly service. What a breeze of fresh air! It's a hot dog stand on a busy street, ambiance doesn't really count.

I like to eat here because it's a very relaxing place to be. They got free WiFi. Nice.

Food is decent. Some dishes are very good, some are just OK, but I never had bad dishes. Drinks are really good. I love the drinks. They taste refreshing and not artificial.

Service is really good. They are very polite and fast. Can't complain.

In terms of value, it really depends what you order. I think value is above average. You will leave there with a full stomach for sure.

I like the ambiance because I feel relaxed. I am not rushed. The seating arrangement is excellent. Tables are far away from each other, so you have full privacy. You can talk about anything with your friends and no one can hear you unless you talk in really high volume. The place is clean.

Overall, it's a good dining experience. I hope their business will do very well because they are very nice people.

Overpriced Baked Goods
Submitted Friday, January 30, 2009 - 12:59am [Dine in]

If it were a shop like Starbucks with decent seating and decor, the price would be more acceptable. But that's not a case. It's a shop in a food court with very crowded and cramped seating situation. The food court in Oakridge Centre is ugly and crowded, every shopper's nightmare. It's really not pleasant to sit there unless you are really hungry when you happen to be there.

So you basically just buy your baked goods and go. You go find a seat in a food court. Ambience is 0. but you pay at least $4.50 for a small baked pie or something else. It's really not worth the price to eat an average pie at a cafeteria like food court for 5 bucks. The baked goods taste just like supermarket baked goods, it's no better than Safeway. Except you get half dozen for 5 bucks at Safeway, here you get one. LOL!

I believe some of the more upscale coffee shops offer dessert at that price too, 5 bucks a piece of cake or pie, some are even cheaper. And their shops are prettier and you get to have better seating arrangement.

I notice most people must walk around and take a look, very few people are buying. No lines what so ever. I think Stuart's people need to stop being greedy. Bakeries are everywhere. Some offer more delicate pastries with cheaper price, what makes Stuart's think they can price so high? Other shops have similar products too. Stuart's is not that unique or one and the only. They might be able to make money off tourists at Granville Island, but not in this local mall for local people.

Lame Food, Bad Seating, Nice Presentation
Submitted Wednesday, January 28, 2009 - 2:39am [Dine in]

Yup! The title says all. The food is lame. Taste is so so. It's not the best or even top 10 food I ever had. I don't miss the taste. Actually, I don't remember the taste.

Seating is bad. They are cheap on seating arrangement. Some tables are cramped together in the corner or something. It's very uncomfortable. Making people sit in a cramped space, you call that fine dining? They have a lot to learn.

Service is ok. It's hard to get the waiter's attention. He disappeared for quite a while. Couldn't find him. Definitely not professional! Last time I checked, fine dining should include great and professional service.

The only thing that looks like fine dining is presentation. Yes, food is pretty to look at. And it stops there.

Eating "presentation" is getting old. It's being a while many restaurants are showing off nice food presentation to sell you fine dining price. It's like looking at a cute girl. Seriously, how long can you still think she is cute if she has lame personality? It's not the first time you see pretty food presentation. Your sense (eyes) are getting numb already. Your tummy tells you that you want really tasty food not mediocre taste.

If you just get one cupcake out of curiosity, it's ok. If you want to get a bunch as a gift to someone, maybe you should get better cakes somewhere else. You don't want to make someone feel obligated to finish dry and lousy tasting cupcakes.

The food is so not authentic, I feel like eating Chinese food not Korean food. You might as well buy Korean sauce, Korean spice, and other Korean products at TT or Yoham and make it yourself (make sure it's made in Korea in order to get real Korean food flavor, no local stuff or made in Chine stuff please). It will be more authentic than Kim Ga Nae and taste even better.

Just a rip off, a hype, whatever you name it
Submitted Sunday, January 4, 2009 - 3:16am [Dine in]

My friend insisted he had to try it, so we went along.

There's nothing new with putting non traditional pizza ingredients on a dough to make a fusion pizza. California Pizza Kitchen started doing that long long time ago. The only differences are that California Pizza Kitchen is actually cheaper than Strawberry Cone, and California Pizza is a real restaurant and Strawberry Cone is just a lame food court joint. What a shame.

Strawberry Cone is really just a hype to rip off chinese customers who seem to be always fond of or curious about Japanese import. It's really nothing special.

Food: Small portion, really small. It can only fill up a child. It doesn't even use a real pizza oven like California Pizza or other respected pizza places. It uses a commercial toaster oven. For god's sake, you could use a toaster oven to bake a Delissio pizza (DiGiorno in USA) yourself at home.

Everyone knows oven makes a huge difference when it comes to making a pizza because of heat distribution. California Pizza uses wood ovens and it's still cheaper than Strawberry Cone. How does Strawberry Cone justify itself for its expensive mini pizzas?

The medium pizza Strawberry Cone has here is small or individual pizza at any other pizza places.

Fusion pizzas still don't taste as good as traditional pizzas, doesn't matter which store it is. There's something about those traditional ingredients and pizza dough, they just work well together. Frankly, none of the fusion pizzas I had have memorable taste or give me cravings. They are all forgettable.

friendly bakery, wonderful products, clean and cozy environment
Submitted Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 1:22pm [Dine in]

I drive by this brand new bakery. It looks new with some decor from outside. I walk in and I find that I do like the decor. The interior has that wood theme and warm color scheme going on. It's clean, cozy and cute. I hope they can keep it this way forever.

How about the products? Products are fresh. They are great and different from other bakeries in Richmond. They have their own niche. You can tell they did put some thoughts in their product development.

The pineapple bun is so good. It's the best pineapple bun I ever had. The crust on the top doesn't crumble or fall apart. The bottom of the bun is basically the same texture as the top crust except it doesn't have the pineapple pattern at the bottom. How great is that??? A pineapple bun with crust from top to bottom! You definitely don't get that from any other asian bakery.

The artisan breads are very good, wonderful texture. Not too hard or too soft, not too chewy, they are just right. They have many Italian style bake goods. I love it. Something new in Richmond for sure. Did I mention all the breads are in very decent size. There's no shrinking breads here. Price is very fair. They definitely offer good values to customers.

It looks like an Asian owned store but their products are not the same tired Asian bake goods you see everywhere. They have their own niche and offer different stuff. They have some Asian breads like pineapple bun or that coconut filling bun too. But they also have other products not only they taste good and you won't find them in other Asian or non Asian bakeries. Very unique!

Service is very friendly. I really appreciate it.

I really like this bakery. I hope they can keep it up their good work. I sincerely hope they will do well in business. They deserve it.

Parking is easy. There's parking space in that square. As long as you avoid lunch time when people are going to the restaurants in the same square, you should be OK. The bakery does have its own reserved a few parking space for their customers. I think lunch time should not be that hard to park at their reserved space. People just grab some breads and go. They won't occupy the parking for too long.
