Surprisingly great Korean food in my 'hood!
Submitted Wednesday, December 7, 2011 - 6:43pm [Dine in]

I have lived in the Mount Pleasant area for over 10 years, but have never had the courage to wander up the stairs of this restaurant until last week. My partner & I ate Korean food, and it was excellent, along with the service. We will both most definitely go back - a new favorite in my neighborhood!

Wallflower, The2420 Main Street, Vancouver
We love the servers at Wallflower!
Submitted Saturday, November 5, 2011 - 4:22pm [Dine in]

We went for brunch to Wallflower again today & we loved everything about it, from being very warmly greeted by one of the two cute servers as soon as we got inside & told to sit wherever we wanted...at 10:30am we had a good choice of almost anywhere to sit.

Both servers are super cute, very knowledgeable about the gluten free menu, friendly, and keep us coming back for more.

The one SERIOUS downside...they don't have an espresso machine, but hey we have an awesome stove top espresso machine at home, so we just make sure to have a yummy coffee before we go to Wallflower.

Thanks for literally being right around the corner from where we live!!!

Electric Owl disappoints
Submitted Wednesday, August 31, 2011 - 9:10am [Dine in]

Love the redone interior - you would never recognize that it used to be the American. However, the food & the service sucked big time. Not impressed at all. We asked what appetizers were 2 for 1 & our waiter said that we needed a coupon. We advised that their website stipulates 2 for 1 for appies between 5-7pm. He tried to argue the point, went off to talk with someone, came back to our table & said "fine" but then was unable to clearly articulate which items on the menu were considered appetizers. I was quite happy I didn't eat as I heard a number of folks say the food wasn't very good.

Super disappointing as this is a new addition to my 'hood & I was excited to check it out.

Will I go back? Maybe, but it would only be for a beer, and I wouldn't expect friendly service.

Foundation, The2301 Main Street, Vancouver
No Nachos for lunch!
Submitted Sunday, April 3, 2011 - 10:14pm [Dine in]

So, I live within walking distance of the Foundation and my partner has asked me why I never went there - same old story as a lot of other folks' reviews - crappy service. I and a friend actually went in a year or so ago & they literally walked around us & served everyone else and completely ignored us until we got up and left - a very bizarre experience. Plus, they often have a long line up and I refuse to line up for a restaurant in Vancouver - there are just too many others to choose from. And, I'd heard of the HepA outbreak & was loathe to go...That all being said, a serious foodie friend's status update on Facebook about missing Vancouver & missing the Nachos at Foundation made me want to check it out so my partner & I ended up there this weekend. Apart from the fact that they don't friggin serve Nachos for lunch (I think they start serving them at 430pm), the food was excellent. We had a cup of ginger carrot soup which was more like a large bowl for $4 and 2 burgers - the Foundation which was ok, and another (can't remember the name but it was a bit spicy and had hummus on it) & it was EXCELLENT. The waiter barely spoke to us and didn't even ask if our meals were ok, so when he reached over to pick up the plates when we were done I said "the food was awesome, by the way" and he brightened right up & we actually had a convo about which burger was better and he recommended that we do need to come back to try the nachos. I think I actually may have seen a wee smile on his face as we spoke, which was weird because honestly there were quite a few people working there, and I didn't see a single one smile. What is that about? Please don't tell me you're too trendy to smile?

Also, my partner & I are both carnivores (him more than me) & we both loved the food options on the menu and will come back to try the Nachos & probably one of their yummy salads.

Sunny Spot Cafe2543 Main Street, Vancouver
Smoky Sunny Spot
Submitted Sunday, April 3, 2011 - 9:44pm [Dine in]

I love the Sunny Spot & the fact that it's one of the last restaurants on Main Street that hasn't been completely gentrified. The food has always been great, there are lots of vegetarian options and they have cool stuff like watercress and goat cheese in their omelettes. The service has always been friendly, and one of the waitresses wears a cute "hello kitty" apron. That said, they need to seriously get some ventilation happening in there. My partner and I went a few weeks ago for a breakfast after a night of partying, and we were so sickened by the smoky interior that we asked to take out our breakfasts as we were choking on the poor air quality. All they need to do is run a proper ventilation system in the place and we would be back in a second. And, I'm pretty sure it's against the law to have a place that smoky.

Habit Lounge2610 Main Street, Vancouver
Not impressed with Habit anymore...
Submitted Thursday, March 13, 2008 - 5:17pm [Dine in]

Habit is in my 'hood, and I have been a regular for the past 2 years. One of the servers in particular is fabulous, and the food has been consistently good. However, my last visit on Feb21 will definitely be my last unfortunately. I always order the chicken wings & the tofu & both were completely overcooked and dry. About mid-way through our meal, a woman came in and sat down at a table near us. She tried to get a new waiter's attention, who ignored her for quite some time. When he finally stalked over to her table, he exclaimed in a very loud voice (loud enough for everyone to hear) that he wasn't interested in serving her if she wasn't going to pay & that he had served her at least 3 times at Slickety Jims and she had left without paying. Quite frankly, I don't have any problem whatsoever with what he said to her, it was all in HOW he said it to her. She was obviously a poor individual, and was hoping to eat without paying. He could've very kindly leaned over & quietly mentioned what he did to her. Instead, he loudly proclaimed it for all to hear, which was very embarassing for the woman. I work in the downtown eastside and see how homeless people are mistreated all the time, and I was shocked and dismayed to see the server treat this woman so disrespectfully.

I will not be back.
