Zawa Restaurant920 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Good Selection for Breakfast
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 11:52pm [Dine in]

I was drawn to this place by the large selection of omlettes. I was very happy with what i found. The food was great, service was solid (not too much, not too little) and the ambiance was relaxed. It wasn't overly busy for a Sunday brunch service (10:00am) but if more people knew about it, I bet it would be busier. Beats most other places I have been too while costing much less. Try it!

Not bad, but not Fab
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 11:43pm [Dine in]

I have eaten here 3 times now, more out of convenience than for anything else. I have to say, the sushi is actually pretty good. But the prices are too high for what you get, especially considering the prices everywhere else. Having said that, an extra 50 cents for an oshinko roll is not going to bankrupt most people. Don't go out of your way, but stop in if you need a quick bite and are nearby. Try the dynamite and house special rolls.

Always good enough
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 10:21pm [Dine in]

I live very close to this place, and it always satisfies my craving for BBQ pork fried rice or lettuce wrap. It's not amazing or outsatnding, but it does what I need it to do. This is especially handy for those late-night nosh sessions. The service is usually ok, and I have gotten to know, and have a soft-spot for, these sometimes hard-faced, always hard-working girls. Most work 6 nights a week, late into the night.

Best Salad rolls
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 10:14pm [Dine in]

I went into this place looking for a quick lunch. I am usually suspicious of these crossover-type places, but decided to give it a go.

After discovering the owners were Vietnamese, I decided to go with the pho, chicken sub, and salad rolls. I was very pleased. The pho was good. The sandwich was solid. The salad roll - incredible. When I was done (with plenty to take home), they proudly showed me how they made them - freshly cooked rice noodles, fresh prawns steamed just before they were rolled, and fresh green lettuce. I will go back, if only for another salad roll.

Good, solid food
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

Came in here after a fight with the Mister for some comfort. Found it in the miso soup and pork cutlet with egg on rice (name escapes me at the moment). Staff were very frendly and kept my tea cup filled. I didn't try the sushi on this visit, but will do at some point. Went home fuller and in a better mood.. :)

I heart the Cottage Cheese muffin
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 10:05pm [Dine in]

The cottage cheese muffins are worth the trip for me. Whenever I am in the area I try to pick one up, and am disappointed when they are sold out! While the bagels are not special, I really enjoy the hearty soups they have, especially the bean soup. The cream cheese-filled pastries are also very enjoyable. Overall, a solid lunchtime experience.

Soup Plus1102 Austin Ave., Coquitlam
Best Soup and Sandwich...Ever....
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 9:49pm [Dine in]

I am with you, Chadd - I will travel far and wide just for a taste of this guy's food. In fact, I HAVE travelled far from East Van to get to him on a moment's craving...

Best soup and sandwich you will EVER eat, period.. full-stop...do not pass go, do not collect the preverbial $200...just eat soup, especially the lentil bacon or cream of cauliflower. I don't know what he does to it to make it so damn good...do yourself a favour and order one of each soup with a ham and cheese on his homemade bread. Don't bother asking to buy a loaf, he won't sell it to you...but you will ask...oh yes, you will, because you will not be able to resist trying....He's a bit of a ham, and could be likened to the soup nazi if you don't have a sense of humour, but you will love him forever because of this soup....

Me and my husband will likely pilgrimage there in the next few days now that this review has me thinking of him. In fact, we just put an offer on a place in Port Moody and the thing that makes me happiest about that (besides the proximitry to Rocky Point and Thrifty Foods) is the fact I will be closer to Soups Plus...

Burgoo3 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
A Pleasant Surprise
Submitted Saturday, February 7, 2009 - 9:38pm [Dine in]

While waiting for the computer store up the street to process a transaction for us, we were directed by the staff there to lunch @ Burgoo. Were we ever surprised!

From the looks of it, we were expecting a Catus or Earl's-type expereince. We were WRONG! The food was anything but ordinary. The chicken corn chowder had a wonderfully fresh yet smoky flavour. The chicken club was served on a most-amazing bread. The cheese biscuit was soft, fresh and warm. The lamb tagine was to die for - I mean, it should be illegal for meat to be that tender. We didn't eat everything, and savoured every bite of the leftovers at home.

We were SO pleased we will be there for our first-ever Valentine's Day out - after 6 years together, this will be very special! Looking forward to the chocolate fondue! We would also like to thank the lovely server, too :)

Hearty and Tasty
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 10:20pm [Dine in]

I have visited this place twice, and enjoyed it both times. The service has been solid, and we were especially impressed last time watching the server with a VERY difficult and hard to please table across from us.

The bean soup was homemade and delicious. The entrees were well-prepared and tasty. Their roasted potatoes and hummus were exceptional. They have weekly 2-for-1 specials, so check it out!

Don Mee Seafood Restaurant538 Fisgard St., Victoria
Downhill....FAST!
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 10:14pm [Dine in]

My husband always had a place in his heart for Don Mee since he used to go there a lot as a kid growning up on Salt Spring...that is, until the last time we went last week....

We arrived just before 2:00 for dim sum. We were told it was still on. Well, apparently they think 2 carts going round and round with the same 4 offerings is dim sum. When we tried to ask for other items, we were shouted at with "what do you want???" and "later, later" by women who obviously didn't want to be there. The three dishes we did have were decent, but we couldn't find anything else we wanted....and they still offered us the same dishes over and over again.....so we paid our bill ($15!!!) and left.....SO disappointing...

Glad I found it!
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 10:07pm [Dine in]

After a disappointing turn at a dim sum place in Victoria, my husband and I decided to go for dim sum on New Years' Eve to make up for it. We were going to go to a place downtown, but I decided to check dinehere to see if there was any place closer with a good rep. That's when I found this place. I had seen it before, and since there are always corwds, I figured it had to be good.

I was right! I was first impressed when I called to find out the di sum times. The lady who answered was friendly and helpful. The front staff greeted us right away when we got there. They even gave us a picture book to help up with the extensive menu and were willing to answer all questions.

The dumplings are MASSIVE. The food is fresh and made to order, which was a nice change from carts that roll around trying to get rid of stuff. The place was packed with people, which I think is a testament. On our way out, the staff gave us a take-out menu and a business card and told us they would be happy to do our next order as take-out if we wanted to avoid crowds.

We will be back!! I think I will go tomorrow!!

Fast food...you get what you pay for!
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 9:57pm [Dine in]

This place reminds me of IKEA. Plastic chairs, big posters with pictures of the food with the prices...go there and you will see what I mean.

Overall, the fod is decent. It's also quick and cheap, so it works of you need a quick bite. I like the fast food concept, but I always feel bad that I have to throw away my dishes when I am eating in....

Buu Dien Vietnamese Restaurant1800 Renfrew Street, Vancouver
Reliable and Cheap
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 9:51pm [Dine in]

This place was good enough to convert my husband (4 years of fear of vietnamese food) to a believer!

This place looks like something out of 1960s Saigon, and my friends and I dig it! Plastic plants, cheesy elevator music, the whole works. Many of the servers do not speak English very well, but they try hard and smile a lot. It is pretty clean, and the food comes very fast and is VERY CHEAP.

As for the food, the chicken sub is FABULOUS. I am addicted to them, and for $3, I can afford to indulge. The pho is tasty. I have tried the rare beef once and it was pretty good. Overall I always prefer the lemongrass chicken pho, but since I always have the sub, I have been sticking to a plain noodle soup with beef broth loaded with bean sprouts and lime. The deep fried prawns are the most $$ on the menu, but they are a sinfully delicious treat. The springrolls with vermecelli and salad is my husband's favorite.

Try it out!!

Tom Yum Thai4010 Hastings, Burnaby
A lovely little place to spend an evening...
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 9:40pm [Dine in]

I have been to this little gem a few times. It is very tiny (6 tables), but very appealing with the umbrella lamps and posters of Thailand on the walls. The people who run this place are actually Thai, and accordingly always greet with a smile.

The prices are lower than the Thai Cafe just up the street, and the food, in my opinion, is much better. Yes, the portions aren't HUGE, but it is the cheapest Thai food around, and we always go home with leftovers.

The tom kah gai is worth trying - lots of flavour and as spicy as you please. The green curry is smooth and delicious. The mixed veggies left something to be desired (a little salty) but they did have a nice mix of vegetables in it.

I would love to see this place thrive, so stop in and give it a try!

Good and Fresh
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I always have a good experience at this place. I generally don't order 'cooked' foods at Japanese places, so I can't comment on terriyaki or anything. The rolls are always good-sized. They have the best salads - I really love the ohitashi (largest portion I have ever seen, by far) and the garden salad (they use red leaf lettuce instead of iceburg). I know the owners aren't Japanese, but they still have decent food, so I will continue to patronise!

I went to x-site with a friend on a whim one night. What a find! I am surprised it wasn't busier. The food was very inexpensive with decent-sized portions. The service was good. It was a little dark in there, but the atmosphere gave off a good vibe. I haven't been back since, but will definately go again.

Cold food, warm surroundings
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 9:14pm [Dine in]

My husband and I were dragged to this restaurant two years in a row by his family during the holidays. We were so happy when this past Christmas, we did not have to go again.

The food is sub-par, at best. Two years in a row we got cold food. It was also pretty tasteless. My sister-in-law got burnt, yet underdone food. How does that happen?? The service was decent, but we waited about 90 minutes after ordering for the food. Anyway, it is a beautiful setting, but the food needs to be worked on, especially at those prices.

Family Favorite
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 9:06pm [Dine in]

This place is a favourite of my family. I grew up only a few blocks aways, so we have known these people for about 20 years. Food is always hot, fresh, and tasty. The service is always outstanding. They are always willing to subsitute items on combos and create special dishes by request, The bathrooms are always clean. Can't ask for more! We had our wedding rehearsal dinner there and it was perfect - 25 people stuffed themselves with plenty of leftovers for $350 tax/tip in! Try the house special chicken, steamed juicy buns, chicken corn soup, orange beef, and house special fried rice.

One of my favorites

I go to the Fish House whenever my friends visit from England. I am consistently impressed by the food and the service. One thing that is irritating is that they got rid of the sampler platter, which was always what I looked foward to.
