Yamato Sushi616 Davie St, Vancouver
Some of the Best Sushi in Town
Submitted Tuesday, December 9, 2008 - 2:22pm [Dine in]

Yamato Sushi is, without a doubt, some of the best sushi in town. Great bento box deals, awesome selection and very creative, very, very tasty original rolls. I can't understate the quality of the sushi here..truly some of the best around. Price is very fair; I eat here at least twice a week. The staff are extremely friendly, though often seem overworked...the place gets really, really crowded. However, despite being crowded all the time, you can expect to have your food fresh and ready to eat within 10-15 minutes. Only problem; its a tiny place...doesn't take long to fill up and once its full, there's nowhere to sit.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1465 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Best BBQ in town... room for attitude improvement
Submitted Wednesday, May 21, 2008 - 3:57pm [Dine in]

I have to say that MB is one of my favorite places in town. Great blues music, cozy décor and really good food. Having said that, it is important to note that MB is the ONLY place in town that serves real BBQ and they benefit from that fact enormously. Meaning, as the only real BBQ place in town, the food’s great… compared to other real BBQ spots around the world.. er.. meh. I usually go with the Memphis Feast which I share with a buddy or two.. it’s a mix of almost everything they have and is a must-have if it’s your first time there. It’s more or less a self-serve place; make your order at the counter, take a seat and grab it when they call your name. The staff is usually very friendly except for the big guy who I think owns the place… he can be a real jerk. Mispronounce a menu item, and he’ll be a jerk about it (not in a friendly joking way, but in a sarcastic condescending way), ask about the cuts of meat, he’ll be a jerk about that too. Sure he’s got a monopoly on real BBQ in town and won’t be going out of business anytime soon, but I don’t see why he can’t go a little bit out of his way to be nice. Oh, and when you call in, make sure you know EXACTLY what you want to order, because he’ll be a jerk about that too. Still one of my favorite places in town though.

Wings Restaurants & Pubs1162 Granville Street, Vancouver
OK food, decent service, fire the manager
Submitted Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 12:55pm [Dine in]

The food here is pretty good. The wings are nothing to write home about, which is surprising considering the name of the place. The menu has good variety, my favorite is the mile-high burger.. definitely worth a try. Service is decent, servers are very nice but quite casual.. I enjoyed this, but I could see how it could rub some people the wrong way. The is, however, one major problem with this place which keeps me from going in... the music is UNBELIEVABLY LOUD... I mean, almost ridiculous... you can't speak to or hear anyone at your table AT ALL, and it keeps going up. Now I asked if it could be turned down and I got a “nothing I can do” look from my server who pointed to the manager. I watched this guy go back and forth from the little back room where he would stay for a couple of seconds (I know what you’re doing in there buddy *sniff* *sniff*) and turn it up a bit more. I just hoped they would have turned the music down a little bit so I could enjoy my meal a little more, even if that means the manager has to enjoy his coke high a little less. Bottom line; great for take-out until they realized they should turn down the music and fire that greasy-haired manager.
