Frenchies! Montreal Smoked Meat2546 E Hastings, Vancouver
Not worth it in my honest opinion...
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 12:47am [Dine in]

I tried it out because of the decor and because I still had great memories of Schwatz's smoked meat in Montreal. I'm pretty disappointed. The prices are pretty high and while quantity for the poutine is large, mine had lots of over fried gristle under the gravy and unmelted cheese curds. If you're willing to pay $30 for a large smoked meat sandwich, medium poutine and a coke, then I guess try it out but it was a bit pricey for me and the food was just average. Next time I crave smoked meat and poutine, I'll hit up the food court at Costco.

Liu's Taiwanese Restaurant8388 Capstan Way, #1423, Richmond
Great food!
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 12:41am [Dine in]

My friend recommended this place and stops by anytime he's going to be in Richmond. I ordered #3 on the special combo page. It's only $8.50 for 3 fried chicken thighs, rice with beef on top and some steamed veggies as well as a jasmine milk tea. The chicken is amazing! It comes out hot and crispy and the price is great. I was definitely full and could easily make this 2 meals by packing half to go. Decor is minimal with booths and tables but it's clean and the service is fast. It's right beside Richmond Sushi in a small complex with some other restaurants. I'm going back.

Fresh fresh sushi!
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 1:55pm [Dine in]

I can eat average fish at most of the restaurants in Vancouver. But when you get a craving for really fresh, succulent sushi, this is a great choice. I order chirashi and there was so much, I couldn't finish. Thick cuts of salmon, tuna, ebi and tako. Mounds of chopped scallop and tobiko. Perfect rice. Totally satisfied my craving. Attentive service. Will be back.

Great Find!
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 1:49pm [Dine in]

I love this place. There are always a ton of people outside and I finally decided to check it out after reading excellent reviews in the Georgia Strait. The food is really satisfying and it's fun to eat in a diner setting. The pace is pretty quick and food does run out here. Just as I was ordering some lamb chops, they were crossed off the board. No worries though. My stir fry was awesome. I highly recommend this place if you want a down to earth, come as you are place to eat.

Great setting, average food.
Submitted Wednesday, April 4, 2007 - 1:16am [Dine in]

I was happy with the decor and the view. Service was nice. We ordered a simple green salad and pizza. The pizza had a thin crust but it's not like on the eastcoast. It was actually too crunchy and didn't taste like a crust; more like pizza toppings on a cracker or the like (use your imagination). The salad was nice but a little overdressed. Prices are good.

Sweet Cherubim Natural Foods & Restaurant1105 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Good!
Submitted Sunday, April 1, 2007 - 4:25pm [Dine in]

Food was pretty good! It's self serve at this place. You line up, order with the cashier and then wait for your name to be called to pick up your food. I ordered a breakfast burrito which came with a fresh salad and tangy dressing. The burrito was very filling. The total was $6.50. Afterwards, we went to the adjoined market and bought some samosas which were $2.25 each. I ate the samosa the next day and it was great!

Vintropolis Wine Bar & Bistro1809 West 1st Ave., Vancouver
Nice place, good food, small portions, terrible service
Submitted Thursday, March 29, 2007 - 2:08am [Dine in]

My friends and I came here on a Tuesday night. It was almost empty. As a positive, I thought it would be nice and quiet. However, the waitress (the only one working that night) was a little impatient with our orders. She seemed perturbed that we were there or that we weren't ready with our orders. When the food came, it was good but the portions were tiny for the price (most items were over $10). Then she was in a rush to clear our plates. We almost laughed when she came to take away the half eaten cheese plate ($18) which had started out with only 3 cheeses of 20g each. We had ordered mussels and fries as well and only after we had finished did one of my friends notice that bread had not been brought to our table. She asked the waitress, "Isn't bread normally brought out?" This should have been her cue to apologize and/or bring out some bread but her response was, "Do you usually get bread when you come here?" My friend responded that she had gotten bread on her two previous visits. The waitress then responded with, "Well, it depends on what you order. For instance, if you order a salad, we'll bring out bread (I think I frowned at this point because we had ordered salad) or when you ask for water, we'll bring out bread (I actually choked here because my friend had been brought water while she was waiting for us) but we don't automatically bring it out because we don't want our customers to get full on bread and water."

My friend was hilarious because she said, "Honey, you should've just stopped with the first excuse because you just dug yourself in deeper with the second one." Of course, the waitress of out of earshot by this time.

We had a great laugh about it afterwards but it really was memorable and not in a positive way.

Many factors
Submitted Wednesday, March 21, 2007 - 10:43am [Dine in]

I've been to this place a few times. After the first time, unimpressed with my meal, I didn't make an effort to go back. The second time, I went with some friends because one of them had a craving. The food was better. The last time I went, again, the food was good. Service is decent. You need to be a bit aggressive here but I realize it's because they might be understaffed. It's the Korean equivalent of a diner or Red Robin's, I'd say.

Rodney's Oyster House1228 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Solid!
Submitted Monday, March 19, 2007 - 11:59pm [Dine in]

Rodney's is great. This is my second time and it's good eats. The staff are very friendly and make great recommendations. I love the crusty/soft bread and great seafood. I had oysters today and they were so fresh. I was thinking of buying alot at Granville Island but the price comes out to be less if you eat em at Rodney's since they chuck them for you and you get lemon and some nice accompanying sauces. Definitely go between 3-6 for their specials. $1.50/oyster!!

Great cheap eats!
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 5:28pm [Dine in]

I just got back from this place... Oh gosh! It's really good! I oredered congee and kai lan. The congee is pretty great. I've had runny and glopy congee before but this was the perfect consistency.

The kai lan was a bit over steamed but still good. Food came w/in 3 mins of ordering which was good cause I was starvin!

Mmm chicken wings
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 2:05am [Dine in]

I came specifically for the wings and they did not disappoint. I actually ate a whole dish by myself. They're seasoned so well that you can eat them without using the tangy dipping liquid. Not bad for less than $7.

Not Bad
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 1:57am [Dine in]

Our server was great. Quirky girl with great personality. The food? I've had better for a little cheaper but the location on Robson was good. The nori on my tobiko sushi tasted kinda stale. Not disappointing but don't expect anything really amazing.

Great Bargain!
Submitted Friday, March 16, 2007 - 4:02pm [Dine in]

I just ate the most amazing sandwich! I haven't had bread this good since being in Paris. The fillings were also superb. Just the right amount of everything. I ordered the #4 which has chicken, cilantro, jalapeno, pickled cucumbers and pickled carrots. It was fantastic. The place is bustling and seating was full when I got there around 1pm. There's a really sweet man at the register and even though the place looks barebones, the service is quick. The food comes fast! Plus, it's really easy on the wallet! Recommended!!!
