Mexican Antojitos Y Cantina1049 Granville Street, Vancouver
Authentic Mexican Food
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 7:12pm [Dine in]

I'm surprised to see that no one else has reviewed this place before. The crowds this place drew definitely make it seem popular. I've eaten here a couple of times and can now say the food tastes authentically Mexican. There is a common trend to make Mexican food taste and look like Tex - Mex but this is not the case here.

The food was excellent, and I spotted more than one Hispanic person in the room - a clear sign that what I was getting was genuine food. This is a place to go in groups and the food is ridiculously good, whether it was tacos, quesadillas or chicharron de queso. I was also impressed by the restaurant's tidiness - simple, but clean.

Slice of Chicago5812 Fraser Street, Vancouver
New Pizza Delight
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 7:00pm [Delivery]

I’m a little wary of places that advertise themselves as a place because I always feel like they will sell you something completely different or watered down. This was the feeling I had with “Slice of Chicago”. Upon calling them to check, I decided to place an order.

The large for $18 set me up for a smallish looking pizza, which was the complete opposite when it arrived. The delivery boy came rather quickly and didn’t have to call to ask for directions on how to get to my place (something that happens all the time now that I’ve moved). My order consisted of cheesy bites and a large Chicagoan (the name of the pizza). The pizza was quite large to my surprise, extra cheesy and tasted delicious. Not greasy at all, and quite healthy.

Timkee Kitchen2365 Burrard St, Vancouver
Go for the food
Submitted Thursday, June 4, 2015 - 1:08pm [Take-out]

Really good, inexpensive Chinese food. I used to pass by this place quite often and would ignore it because it wasn't very flashy or full, but don't let the simple looks of this place fool ya. I prefer Timkee to most places because the dishes are authentic (the beef dishes are to die for) and there is an ample variety to choose from. I usually am a little wary of long menus because I feel that there can be a lot of dishes that are not well made, but I guess there are some exceptions. In other Chinese places that I go to I usually end up having to add a ton of salt before eating so that the food can taste good...not the case here. Not to mention that their take out service is pretty good. Tried it out a couple of times, very fast and friendly delivery guy. Haven't had any terrible mix-ups or bad orders yet.

Sushi Oyama5152 Kingsway, Burnaby
Sloppy food and service
Submitted Monday, August 11, 2014 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

Sushi Oyama used to be my favorite places in Metrotown to eat sushi. Its unique location is what draws a lot of people to it; it is located in a heritage building, to put it nicely (it was actually a funeral home. Their vegas roll is a winner, and so is their red roll and spicy salmon sashimi. When I visited again though, I realized that things have changed and not for the better. The sushi is made rather sloppily and carelessly. It’s as if the management does not care anymore. The service has also taken a turn on for the worst. The waitress takes forever to acknowledge you and bring you your stuff. My food was brought almost instantly but I had no cutlery for about 10 minutes...

Aji Taro4940 No. 3 Road, #101, Richmond
Shouldn't have gone back
Submitted Friday, August 8, 2014 - 10:39am [Dine in]

I am not going to lie, I have been to Aji Taro in the past and didn't have such an unpleasant experience as the reviewers here described. So I decided to give it a second shot the other night.

I usually don’t have such high standards for food, especially AYCE, but this time around Aji Taro disappointed. I went like at 10 pm and the food was extremely bland. The gyoza was a joke, and the portions of salmon and tuna nigiri were tiny and tasted old. When I asked the waiter about the freshness of the ingredients, she simply didn’t respond (although she clearly heard me).

I think what continues to draw people to it is its late hours. If it were not for the fact that it is open until late (2 am), I don’t think many would go. Better go to somewhere else and get good quality sushi for the same price.

Adesso Bistro1906 Haro Street, Vancouver
Mixed feelings about this place
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 12:42pm [Dine in]

This is definitely a place I can only afford to go to on special occasions. What first impacts you about this restaurant is its ambience. There is an outdoor patio that is lovely and quite romantic. Make sure you have a reservation before coming here because it does get rather busy sometimes, especially for dinner.

Onto the food now…I played it safe and ordered nothing out of the extraordinary. The food was not exceptional; I found the gnocchi to be a little lackluster in taste. The wine list is pretty extensive and if you are not a wine expert like myself, it can be a little overwhelming! The waiter helped me out though. I really liked dessert; I had the cioccolato and it was fabulous. I have a bit of a sweet tooth so I am a little biased in that sense, but even my boyfriend, who isn’t, liked it.

So I'm having mixed feelings about this place. The food never makes me go "wow", especially for its price, but the ambience + dessert + drinks make up for it.

Amato Gelato Cafe78 East 1st Ave, Vancouver
Good gelato but long wait
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 11:36am [Dine in]

There's nothing like some good old gelato when its summer. This place has an amazing amount of gelato to chose from: over 70 flavours last time I asked! I always go for an unexpected and crazy flavor, like hedgehog or green tea. While the staff is normally friendly and courteous, the huge line and wait is always a bummer.

Besides that, I wish they would update their whole payment process. They don't take credit cards which can be a pain, as I usually don't carry cash with me. Prices are not cheap, so why make it more difficult to pay?

Handi4432 Dunbar Street, Vancouver
Large, plentiful portions
Submitted Tuesday, July 1, 2014 - 1:58pm [Take-out]

This is one of my favorite Indian restaurants in the area. Of course, there are places like Vij that offer great Indian-fusion food, but if you are talking about real, authentic Indian cuisine, Handi wins hands down.

I have both eaten here and ordered take-out, the latter more than the former (so I will mostly speak about the take-out than anything else). Their take-out is service is speedy and the portions that are sent are plentiful; sometimes my roommate and I share the food as it is large enough for two! I usually get their chicken dishes, whether it be the butter chicken or the chicken korma, as I love chicken and here at Handi's they cook it to perfection. If you are not into chicken, try their lamb dishes - you can never go wrong with them! Prices are really okay, not too expensive so I think you get good value for your money.

Sawasdee Thai Restaurant4250 Main St, Vancouver
5-star Thai food!
Submitted Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 2:09pm [Dine in]

A meal at Sawasdee never fails to disappoint. This is one of the best Thai restaurants I have been to in the area. Not only is the service swift and fast, but cheap as well.

Every time I go, no matter how crowded it is, the service is done at a lightning speed. The food comes in 10 or maximum 15 minutes from the time you order. The servers literally run to get to everyone as fast as they can.

The curry really tasty, whether it be in the red curry chicken or in the curry with tofu dish. I would highly recommend their coconut rice. Simply delicious. A slight surprise many non-meat eaters get here are the varieties for vegetarians.

Au Petit Cafe4851 Main Street, Vancouver
Cheap Vietnamese eat
Submitted Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 1:51pm [Dine in]

Really inexpensive, good Vietnamese cuisine in Vancouver. I went to check them out the other day and wondered what took me so long! I had heard a lot about their bahn mi sandwiches and couldn't resist not trying them (I love Vietnamese and Thai food). Besides their sandwiches, they also have amazing mains. The ones with the bread, like Banh Mi Xiu Mai Dia, are really good. Unlike other Vietnanmese or Asian places, there are not many things for vegetarians to order, which can be a bit of a downer.

The place gets crowded really quickly due to its size (the place is super tiny) so if you plan on coming here, make sure its a near to solo trip! Some other things to take into consideration is that they only take cash and close super early (7 pm).
