Old Spaghetti Factory14200 Entertainment Blvd, #110, Richmond
Good value
Submitted Monday, April 6, 2009 - 11:13pm [Dine in]

At first it seemed to take a while for our server to get to us, but they were just baking the bread. It was fresh.

I order the spaghetti sampler, which I would give it a 3 out of 6 rating. But this is just because I don't like tomato based spaghetti sauces. I wouldn't say this is their fault, just a personal dislike.

My date had the chicken penne which was very tasty. It had a very subtle cheese taste which is nice as some places are too heavy with the cheese.

Otherwise TOSF is always a good value.

Honolulu Cafe3340 Kingsway, #240, Vancouver
Can't go wrong with HK style cafes
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 11:14pm [Dine in]

I can't really remember what I had now, I think it was a seafood baked rice. You can't go wrong with baked rice. It was very tasty and saucy.

My date had cod fish with corn. It was tasty as well.

It was rather busy, we were lucky we didn't have to wait long for a table. Don't let the looks bother you, the food is good.

As usual, all HK style cafes come with a free drink. So its high value.

Ichiro Japanese Restaurant12011 2nd Avenue, #110, Richmond
Hidden away, but worth the drive
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 11:00pm [Dine in]

We had the sashimi platter and a roll, they informed us they didn't have one of the items in the platter, but they were happy to substitute another surf crab for us.

It wasn't very busy when we were there. I think it was a Saturday night, I forget.

This is another restaurant with Japanese staff.

Can't say much about it other than the price isn't $30-50, it more like $10-20

Aoki Sushi1888 W. Broadway St, Vancouver
Lots of selection
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 10:49pm [Dine in]

We had their Aoki, house, and Alaskan roll. Personally I am not a very good judge between good and really good sushi, so all I have to say is it was good value.

The selection was huge compared to most other sushi places.

The restaurant was rather tiny, but very cosy. As far as I can tell the staff was Japanese and they even had a crazy Japanese phone to go with it. It had a very strange ring, but it added to the ambiance

Schanks Sports Grill350 Gifford Street, New Westminster
Good food, busy very busy game night
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

I had the steak sandwich, and it was incredible. It was huge (10 oz) and the best steak sandwich I've ever had. But really it should be called steak with a small piece of bread on the side. It was also the best steak you can buy for $15. I forgot to get the yam fries, so I was stuck with the super thin over fried fries. There wasn't much potato left him them.

My date had philly cheese steak. I didn't try any, but it looked good.

It took us a while to flag down a waitress as it was game night. But after we got her attention, she served us well.

The Canucks game was on, so the ambiance was very high.

Food was good, but pricey if you add a drink
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 10:18pm [Dine in]

I had the house sandwich. It was thick and had some tasty fried chicken in it, but sort of fell apart as you were trying to eat it. Maybe if you take bigger bites it'll be ok. I also had a mango drink with coconut bits. It was good, your standard bubble tea stuff.

My date had a lamb stir fry. It was very good and saucy.

Selection was ok, value is good if you don't buy a drink.

Dockers Diner1869 Powell Street, Vancouver
Good meal not greasy at all
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 10:12pm [Dine in]

I had Ruben, it was ok. Didn't have enough corn beef taste, but having buttering the outside before toasting the sandwich was a nice touch. It wasn't greasy, just crispy.

My date had the turkey dinner, it was a good value, but the turkey was tough but tasted fine.

The staff was friendly and kept the restaurant open for us a little longer so we could finish the game.
