Notturno Paninoteca280 Carrall Street, Vancouver
beautifully grilled sandwich
Submitted Thursday, January 5, 2012 - 1:50pm [Take-out]

i tried Notturno Paninoteca for the first time today. a takeout sandwich lunch. the 'Tarfuto' was a delightful sandwich. nice pressed chewy and crunchy bread with proscuitto, black truffle aioli, and pecorino cheese. i was very happy that the truffle did not overwhelm the other flavours. each ingredient was of good quality.
the location is hard to find (small signage) and is very small (4 tables).
great for lunch takeout.

Cartel TacoGeorgia & Burrard, Vancouver
good fusion tacos - lots of flavour
Submitted Thursday, June 30, 2011 - 2:05pm [Take-out]

I went to the taco cart today for take away lunch.
Note that it is located at the corner of Hamilton and Dunsmuir this summer.
I ordered both types of tacos that they have: pork and beef. Both come with choice of toppings; cilantro and onions; kimchi, chipotle tomato salsa, tomatillo salsa, lime and orange to squirt. I had everything on mine (only one salsa on each: tomatillo salsa on pork, chipotle on beef).
It was fantastic. The meat was extremely flavourful and the kimchi and salsa combo added such a burst of flavour that each bite was a full meal deal.
Messy though. Glad that I took it back to the office rather than try to eat on a bench.
Three tacos for $8. Very standard pricing for the taquerias that are springing up around Gastown/downtown.

Loved It
Submitted Saturday, June 25, 2011 - 8:23am [Dine in]

I was a bit surprised at just how much I loved this little place. I've only gone once because the hours are hard (8am to 3pm Monday to Friday, and once per month on Saturdays). I went for lunch on a busy Friday. It was packed at 1:30 - I got the last seat. The service is a bit slow but very lovely people so worth it. I had the beef short ribs baguette. Boneless braised shredded beef with caramelized onions and horseradish sauce - to die for. I ordered soup with it (comes with choice of soup, salad, or fries). The soup was creamy, lightly-curried vegetable. Very yummy. Huge portions. I checked out all of the plates going by and everything looked great. In particular the French Onion soup and Salade Nicoise (huge with beautiful pieces of seared tuna). I'll definitely go back to try more of the menu, when my schedule allows!

That's a Decent Sandwich
Submitted Monday, January 31, 2011 - 3:37pm [Take-out]

I went to Meat & Bread for the first time today to get a take-away sandwich. I had one of their standard items, and I believe it is considered to be their 'signature' sandwich: Porchetta.
The pork was well roasted and succulent, the crispy pork rind bits on top were incredible and salty, and the salsa verde was great.
The line up to just pay for the sandwich was unbearably long. They need to create a better flow for faster service as I waited a good 10 minutes to pay for my sandwich after it had been created by the sandwich chefs.
I did not enjoy the decor or the ambiance. Everything annoying about Gastown in 2011 is crowded into the faux-butcher/deli decor.

Had high hopes, but just okay
Submitted Wednesday, January 19, 2011 - 2:33pm [Take-out]

I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. It was okay, but it definitely did not taste like any of the BBQ that I had in either North or South Carolina. It was quite dry, which was not completely unexpected but I was not asked when I ordered whether I wanted it 'wet'. The coleslaw on the sandwich, which was expected for Carolina BBQ, was also not moist at all. I did enjoy the pickle in the sandwich.
The baked beans were lacking in depth and diversity of flavour. I would have liked more tang, sweet, salt combined.

Busy Hong-Kong Style Noodle House
Submitted Friday, August 13, 2010 - 2:02pm [Dine in]

This is a good place in Tinseltown for a solid lunch. They have a large menu, with a lot of noodle choices. Plus they have a good lunch combo special. Great deal for $8.95 with appetizer (wontons or spring roll), soup (sweet and sour or sweet corn) and a longer list of main dishes. The salt and chili pork looked good as did the Shanghai wide noodle.
Very Hong Kong style menu and service.
Will go back.

Deacon's Corner101 Main Street, Vancouver
Liked the Breakfast
Submitted Sunday, August 8, 2010 - 6:59pm [Dine in]

Went to Deacon's at lunchtime for the first time. The server was pleasant and efficient. I asked her what she would recommend, and most of the items she listed were breakfast ones, so I went with a Mexican Scramble.
The portions are very large, and the food was decent. I liked the hash browns and that they offered rye toast. I would try this place again for the their lunch options. The plates that I saw going by with burgers looked very good.

Roundel Cafe2465 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Good food, poor manners on rushing us out the door
Submitted Sunday, August 8, 2010 - 6:56pm [Dine in]

I went to the Roundel for breakfast. The eggs benny were very good, and I liked the combination of roasted potatoes and yams that came with.
The bad experience started when my friend and I had received the bill. We were talking and eating our fortune cookies (nice touch that comes with the bill), when a waitress (not one who had served us) came up to the table and said to us in an annoyed tone that she was happy that we had come to eat but now we were done and she needed our table so we should pay and leave. She sounded very insincere about being happy that we had come for breakfast: her tone was very sarcastic and was meant to let us know that we had exceeded our welcome and that she thought that we were rude for not having left already. Btw: I should point out, having read an earlier review, that this was NOT the waitress that the other reviewer talked about.
It left me feeling soiled, and all of the good feelings that I had been feeling about the food vanished. I will hesitate to recommend the place to anyone as I feel really bad about how it ended.
