Adria Gelato7155 Kingsway, #224, Burnaby
Stale
Submitted Sunday, March 27, 2011 - 10:00am [Dine in]

Not worth the price, worrisome quality. Went with some out of town visitors. Not wanting to drive into Vancouver or go to Metrotown on a sunny Saturday afternoon, we thought we would give this little shop at Highgate Village a try. Nice European lady, quick service - however, the gelato was not fresh tasting. How would I know the difference between fresh and not fresh? Guess we have been spoiled with the fast turnover of product in the busier shops (not to mention adherence to higher standards of quality and storage?). The Almond Gelato tasted like something that had been left uncovered in the refrigerator - or freezer burnt ice cream - and the flavour was very sweet and artificial . The Chocolate Gelato was not smooth - there were rubbery bits..... the hard edges from the sides of the container being stirred back in maybe? ...too scared to give this place a second chance.

This is place for Butter Chicken
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 6:08pm [Dine in]

I know this place as Punjab Sweets. Best butter chicken I have ever had. Have tried this dish a few dozen times at various restaurants across the country, as well as making it in my own kitchen. This is the place to go on 34th ave for the buffet. Maurya seems a bit safe and pricey and same goes for the New Asian Village (NAV), which seems is now officially a chain restaurant. New Asian is great for luxurious, long evening meals, but go to Punjab Sweets if it's a mid-day buffet you're hankering for. You can also grab a quick takeout - a nice treat is a vegetarian samosa slathered in cholay (curried chickpeas) - YUM. I usually eat mine in the car before I make it home (er...as a passanger, or parked). This is the place to come for great value. Parking can be tight, and it's in what looks like a former Ponderosa restaurant. Not certain, but I think they still have the wagon-wheel chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. You have to love that! There is counter service for samosa and various other savouries and sweets. Buffet is good value, and fresh naan made to order. Service at counter can be a bit hectic - as of my last visit, no 'take a number' system in place, and the staff in the kitchen seem a bit harried at times when the takeout orders are piling up. Veggie samosas are great too!

India Grill4620 99 Street, Edmonton
Highly Recommended
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 5:45pm [Dine in]

This restaurant came highly recommended from a family who have lived in various countries, and know their indian cuisine. I have been three times, and must say I am thrilled to be 'in the know' now. They have a massive selection of bottled beer from all around the world which can be viewed in the vertical glass coolers that line the entrance hallway. Beautiful rich, luscious decor. I have brought my finicky 9 year old and my vegetarian nephew - both leave stuffed and happy. Something for all of us here. Have dined buffet twice, and a la carte once. Both were wonderful. Fresh, made to order naan, and the doting chefs are always available at the buffet table, ready to assist. Table service is very good - friendly, competent, unobtrusive. ....I LOVE the white-guy waiter. Seems a bit out of place, but he's been there whenever we have and he sure knows his stuff!

Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 5:35pm [Dine in]

This is a great place. Food is amazing, always something new to try. You know you are in good hands, can tell there is alot of caring put into the preparation and serving of the food. Service can be sketchy and hectic as the place can get busy and appears to be family run. However, there is genuine concern that you are enjoying the food. Staff are happy (and proud) to explain different dishes.

Sicilian Pasta Kitchen805 Saddleback Rd, Edmonton
Great food, but where's the competition
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 5:28pm [Dine in]

This place tries a bit too hard with the young, eager wait staff. They seem to always have a new gaggle of fresh-faced kids experiencing their first job from the surrounding neighborhoods. Chirpy and energetic doesn't always equate to competent table service, which seems more chain restaurant oriented than higher end casual Italian. Service doesn't seem to reflect the menu. The Sunday night special of various pastas is a nice idea, generous for sharing, and taking home leftovers. However, the 1/2 dozen times I have dined here, I usually feel somewhat dissatisfied with the experience. Place is usually packed, they turn a good profit, but I sure wish there was competition nearby. The time before last, I made the mistake of looking down at the carpeting. It is the most disgusting filthy carpet I have seen in a restaurant still carrying a license. I assumed it was due for a cleaning, being spring and all. I was wrong, as I made the mistake of looking down on the last visit. I try hard to like this place, what comes from the kitchen is solid. They have to get it together in the front - it's a bit of a joke.

Love Love Love this place
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 5:16pm [Dine in]

I came here for milkshakes when I was a kid, then sort of forgot about the place. Reintroduced recently, and have gone with kids, seniors, teens. There is great value - something for everyone. I was brought here for mother's day brunch, and did not expect much. Decided to order the eggs benedict and was totally surprised at the quality. I am somewhat of an expert as I have consumed many versions of this dish with varying successes and failures, mostly due to the sauce. ...and have also succeeded and failed making hollandaise a number of times. I am certain it's the real deal, homemade version here. ....and very good at that! Service is polite and prompt. The dinner specials are incredible value with soup/salad, large entree and dessert. One of our favourites is the pork chop dinner with mashed potatoes.

Grandma Pizza11411 40 Avenue, Edmonton
Good Heavier Style Pizza
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 5:09pm [Dine in]

This is excellent pizza. Good sauce, the right amount of toppings, generous cheese, atop the old-style heavier, slightly sweet crust. When you're not in the mood for gimmicky and tedious thin crust pizza from the new trendoid joints , this is the way to go. We have ordered many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Sure would be nice if the owners of this sad Petrolia strip mall would make a move one way or the other and Grandma opened a restaurant. It may be that Grandma Pizza's owners may be set on delivery business only, but I could sure see my husband and I enjoying many a pie with a pitcher of draft. ....along with many other peeps and families from the 'hood.

Yokozuna Japanese Restaurant4121 106 Street, Edmonton
Love the specials - good ambiance
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

Always pleasantly surprised with the raw specials. Service is friendly and competent. Nice atmosphere, we like the tatami rooms, and the beer is always cold. Not too fond of the house special roll containing the asian pickle, however, all other rolls are very generous and fresh. We moved from Vancouver 4 years ago, and this became our number 1 affordable sushi joint (after the 'once in a while', more expensive Wasabi in Lendrum). Yokozuna is the better choice for economy and ambiance.

De Dutch Pannekoek House3192 Oak Street, Vancouver
I LOVE the salad with breakfast idea, but what's with the hash browns?
Submitted Wednesday, August 11, 2010 - 7:13pm [Dine in]

Came here for breakfast with my daughter the other morning. She had the Pannekoeken (large thin pancake) with strawberries and bananas. It was presented with a delectable cloud of swirly whipped cream towering from a small glass. Once her eyes popped back into her head, she enjoyed every last bite of it. I had the seafood eggs benedict. The eggs are served on Dutch rusks (like very dry, round toast) atop a layer of smoked salmon and plump shrimp. The eggs were well cooked, and the lemon butter sauce was like a nice light hollandaise. Although a nice change from the usual English Muffin construction, I must say I intend to go back to the traditional benny, the way God intended it to be with good old ham....but I'll try it on rusks again. Oh - and I LOVE the salad. Why don't more places serve salad with breakfast? It was the nicest, freshest little side of salad I have had in awhile, topped with a tangy/creamy light tasting mayo sort of dressing. The hashbrowns were the only dud. They were cooked alright for what they are I guess....those tiny little cube thingies that probably come frozen in a big bag. I'm guessing they are some Dutch favourite ...why else would they be serving them?

Atmosphere is nice and bright: yellow and blue decor, large windows. Service was attentive and friendly. A bit too expensive for a regular 'joint', but a great place to bring the aunt from out of town for a nice breakfast. With pretty decent coffee, the bill with a good tip came to 40 bucks. That is why we don't do this more often - the quality of the food, service and atmosphere are good. Wish the prices were more reasonable.

Me-N-Ed's Pizza Parlor7110 Hall Ave, Burnaby
Thank God for the 500 degree oven!
Submitted Wednesday, May 12, 2010 - 9:27am [Dine in]

Expanding our search for a decent pizza joint in the Vancouver area, not having much luck. Decided to try Me-n Eds in the Edmonds/Kingsway area. What's so great about this place? It reminded me of a pool hall. People must be basing positive reviews on foggy nostalgic memories or something. Tried to like it, had a coupon, so that somewhat justified the $25 price on a large pizza. Why bother 'hand rolling' this pizza crust when it tastes like it was pre-made at some factory far, far away? Way too dry. Thin crust pizza shouldn't have the consistency of a hard tack biscuit. Sauce was nothing special. Could have counted the strands of cheese gratings laying on top. Had cheesecake for dessert - very large serving, good value, but not the real thing. It was the lighter refrigerator dessert version (made-by-the-ladies church-basement kind of cheesecake). Perfect, though, if you are not in the mood for the real thing, with the not quite real whipped cream piped on the side. I could have let it all go, and not submit a poor review if it wasn't for this final thing.... As we were leaving, I thought it would be neat to let the kids watch the pizza being made (because frankly, the kids did like this place). I saw the assembly line pizza makers piling everything on to the pizza orders while wearing rings, bracelets, and yes, even grimy cloth woven-type bracelets covered in sauce and who knows what else. Yummmm. Thank God for the 500 degree oven is all I can say.

I really like this Wendy's
Submitted Sunday, May 2, 2010 - 5:18pm [Dine in]

Been here many times - food is consistently good, service fast. Love the view of North Shore. I see there has been a renovation recently - looking forward to seeing the changes. Hope the bathrooms have been updated. That is the one downside of this location - the bathroom is clean enough, but always smells weird. Hope they have been overhauled.

Zellers Family Restaurant4567 Lougheed Hwy, #300, Burnaby
Simple and Well done - good bread did it for me!
Submitted Wednesday, April 28, 2010 - 7:47am [Dine in]

I had to run in and get some things at Zellers Brentwood the other morning and thought I'd try the breakfast special (2 eggs, choice of ham, sausage or bacon, hash browns, toast and refillable coffee) for $4.99. Wasn't expecting much, however was pleasantly surprised!

Eggs were cooked to perfection (soft poached - and I'm picky), sliced potato nice an crispy-brown, 3 generous portions of ham nicely done and whole grain bread which was of very good quality. Coffee wasn't gourmet, but certainly good enough to wash down breakfast.

Service was prompt and what I expect from the best breakfast joint - extremely efficient and unobtrusive (plus I got called 'honey' and 'sweetheart' lots).

It will be some time before I would venture to order crab eggs benedict at this place (like who does that? 'duh'), but after experiencing a well prepared, unpretentious breakfast, I look forward to trying a grilled chesse for lunch or maybe some mashed potato with cutlets and gravy kind of meal Mmmmmmmmm. I'll bet it will be solid - and definitely under 10 bucks.

Atmosphere is a bit bright for my taste (nowhere to really hide head down and read the paper), however adequately clean (no sticky ketchup bottles), with banquette seating plus they have a stack of newspapers that you can help yourself to.
