India Bistro1157 Davie Street, Vancouver
This Place is Always a Good Deal
Submitted Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

We had a pretty good meal here on Monday with a couple of my co-workers. I am no first-timer here, but what first captivates you of India Bistro is the ambience. Nicely decorated but kind of small, it worked. Where we get seated didn't really matter. Keeping our voices down wasn't really a speciality.

The food is made to perfection each time, I have yet to catch them serving something half-hearted. Portion sizes justify the price. The naan is soft and pillowy, and their chicken dishes are superb. But what really blew us away this time was the rasmalai. Thanks to the persuasion of the waiter, one of my co-workers finally tried it out. His tricks to adding water or milk to make it more edible for others.

Ganache Patisserie1262 Homer Street, Vancouver
Ganache takes the cake
Submitted Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - 10:33pm [Dine in]

Ganache Patisserie is one of those places you can never get bored of because their pastries are so good. Their caramel-chocolat pastry is one of the most delicious things I have tried, even though it has so much chocolate in it (not a big chocolate fan here). And it's not just me, I still feel it still manages to draw a crowd despite being high-priced. I like coming in the mornings when it is not too busy to eat some cake or get some croissants. That, with some fresh coffee, alone can really set your mood and get you going for the day.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
If it were not with Groupon, I would say it's pricey
Submitted Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 2:09am [Dine in]

Came here through Groupon with a group of friends. I wouldn't say its the most expensive Indian restaurant in the city, because that would be plain right lying, but it is not cheap either.

The food was actually not bad. For appies, I had the calamari. Everyone else went boring and ordered samosas/pakoras. But I liked my choice. The drink menu had some local and indian beers, which I found to be pretty neat in fact. For main dishes, we had many things, but what definitely stood out was the garlic naan and lamb saag. The lamb was tender and with the right amount of spice - not overly spiced, but not underspiced either. Each dish was normally around 15 dollars (not on Groupon), so it is definitely not up my alley in terms of price. Besides that, I would recommend it. Service was good, and so was the food.

Flying Beaver Bar & Grill4760 Inglis Drive, Richmond
This place used to be so great
Submitted Wednesday, October 1, 2014 - 4:38pm [Dine in]

While some people, like tourists or those who travel a lot like coming here because it is super close to the airport terminal, I liked Flying beaver for another reason. The ambience! It was just amazingly pretty coming down here, either to catch a canucks' game with your friends over drinks and simple but yummy food (wings, burgers, fries...you get the point).

This time around, i was seriously disappointed. Im all for nice and lively atmospheres, but this one was too much. The music playing in the background was so loud that even sitting in the patio watching the deck was no longer nice. the crowd is also too roudy, which i didnt like this time around. kinda made this place lose its touch.

Pho Nho2060 W Dundas St, Toronto
pho sho!
Submitted Wednesday, October 1, 2014 - 4:20pm [Dine in]

(I don't know what happened to my other review, so here I am posting it again...but ill try to keep it short this time lol). coming here to eat pho was a good choice. Not your typical setting for a pho place, as i found myself in a dark lit room among tvs, which gave the place a different feel. I was a bit confused at first, thinking to myself whether i had come to the right place. I trusted my friends, so I decided to stay. The fact that the waitresses spoke in proper english also struck me! a good sign though.

We had to wait for over 30 minutes to get attended, but when i finally got a hold of the menu, there were so many options to choose from that I just decided to go for something simple, spring rolls, vermicelli, rare beef pho. All hit right on the spot! The only thing I would like to add is that for the payment, they dont take credit, only cash.

Dosa Darbar1150 Albion Road, Toronto
Yummm Indian food! Dosa
Submitted Saturday, September 6, 2014 - 12:41pm [Dine in]

I have had dosas in the past at Indian restaurants but i usually don't go for it. I wanted to remember the taste so I came here. The place is quite clean but small but I was really focused on the food.

I had the masala dosa which comes with potatoes inside and it was amazing! The dosas come with a series of sauces or spices you can add and i liked it most with the coconut chutney more than anything (most people were eating it with sambhar? but i didnt like it as much). I think i am going to go for more dosas in the future! There were so many to chose from that its crazy.

Crepe A Gogo18 Yorkville Ave, Toronto
WOW! Is all I can say. Amazing crepes
Submitted Saturday, September 6, 2014 - 12:30pm [Dine in]

I love this place because it looks like France. Small but cute! I came here without being hungry but just by being here seeing things and smelling the crepes made me hungry in an instant haha. Plus the owner comes right up to you and is so nice and chatty that you feel like you need to stay.

The crepes are really thin and made pretty quickly, they are made in front of you infact. You should eat them with nutella if you don't. One thing i also liked was their house drink, the limonana was really nice.

Yogurty's Froyo652 West Queen Street, Toronto
You've got to be kidding me!
Submitted Saturday, September 6, 2014 - 12:16pm [Dine in]

There is so much to pick here it is difficult to know where to begin. This place is seriously candyland. There are over 100 flavours to choose from, which is ridiculous! If I lived here I'd be here all day and probably gain a couple of pounds haha. The worst part is that it is self-serve, so you can imagine how that went. I liked the blackberry avalanche flavour and some of the toppings I remember are dark raspberry truffle cups, mini m&ms and reeses (that's all that I remember lol).
