Great Burrito
Submitted Sunday, May 12, 2013 - 2:31pm [Take-out]

Grabbed a red chili beef burrito on my way home. Got it home, devoured it. It was still good and hot and delicious. It was real tender slow-cooked beef, not ground. Rice was good and it had black beans which I prefer to pinto. Tortilla was soft and nicely grilled, veggies and sauces were great.

I'll return. I'll probably try another meat next time just to see what else the chef can do. Might be hard to beat the red chili beef though.

I hear their chicken is good too, but I have't tried it yet.

I do not recommend this restaurant. Unless, of course, you'd like to overpay for tiny tapas that look and sound fancy but are a little high on the bland side. The atmosphere and service were great but the food just tries too hard and it's for sure overpriced and undersized. It's not terrible or anything but my girlfriend and I are in solid agreement that we won't go back...and we live less than two blocks away. That says something. We just got back from the restaurant and as I write this there's a frozen pizza in the oven that's we need to satisfy us for the evening.

This place is alright. I've eaten there a large number of times, mostly because I live really close and they're open late. The poutines are generally really good but the last poutine I ate had some different and decidedly inferior curds. The curds have always been top notch with extra squeekyness but today's were far worse. I asked the guy at the counter (who seemed like the owner) if the curds had changed and he denied it. Not too impressed with that.

The best tasting item I've ever had at this place is the bacon grilled cheese. It's definitely pricey for its size but it's flavour is top notch. Make sure to order two (I'm not fatty at about 155lbs so, believe me, it takes two to feel full).

The hot dogs are good but also really small. Steer clear of the coleslaw if you like good eats.

The food was fine at a reasonable price but in order to talk to the person you're sitting with you need to yell like crazy. The staff are constantly yelling orders at each other and the walls are all concrete so the sound just bounces around until it goes into your ear.

The only way I'll go back is if I happen to really want their spicy miso (which is good) and the place is practically empty. Forget about going anywhere near lunch time.

Las Tortas Mexican Gourmet Sandwiches3353 Cambie St, Vancouver
Tasty sammy, but hard on the wallet
Submitted Saturday, August 29, 2009 - 2:02pm [Dine in]

Really good Tortas. I had the hawaiian and was surprised at its deliciousness, especially how they aren't afraid to throw in a couple of jalepenos. At $9/sandwich I most likely won't be going back, though, unless I'm not that hungry and I have someone with whom to split the sandwich.

The ambiance inside is terrible...even worse than a subway and the place was smoking hot from the sun/kitchen. I couldn't stand it and took my sandwich home for eating.

I'd only go again if I was in the neighbourhood and was really hungry enough to eat a $9 take out sandwich.

I live really close and was excited for a new restaurant to be opening in my area, but this place is super lack-lustre. Maybe it's because they just opened and haven't got it together yet, but I've been twice for dinner and the service has been pretty miserable and, for some reason, it takes fifteen minutes to get your drink order even when it's from the tap.

I had the halibut the first time and the risotto and salad-thing were good, but the halibut was basically smothered in salt that I had to mellow it out with risotto for every bite. The second time I had the game hen and it was OK, but the leeks were tough as nails.

They have a wicked beer list, but unless your a drunken Irishman, you won't have a clue what beer you might like and the servers I had knew nothing about their beers and weren't of any help at all. But hey, if you want to spend $10-$12/bottle on obscure-beer-guess-and-test, there's no place better.

Great spot for lunch when downtown

I eat at this place about twice a week as I work nearby. The lineup is often 20-30 strong at five past noon, but it moves quickly and is well worth it. Just don't get the chicken with spinach. Everything on the menu is really really good except for chicken with spinach.

Also, just go for the half-size order. Much better deal for the dough.
