Well Restaurant, The3048 Main St, Vancouver
Magnificent Food
Submitted Sunday, December 6, 2009 - 1:48am [Dine in]

This is a new Restaurant between 14th and 15th on Main Street. It's small but the food is remarkable. I've had an excellent Ghoulash as my Zuppe del Giorno. The Crab Cakes were made with fresh crab. There was an Eggplant Appetizer - Melanzane e Formaggio that was memorable. That dish alone was enough to make my wife full. The Pollo Arrosto (Game Hen) was absolutely fantastic and cooked perfectly. The last time I had it, it came with Israeli Cous Cous. This type of cous cous is bigger and rounder than what we are accustomed to. You will certainly have to fly to Italy to try an Osso Bucco or Veal Marsala of similar quality. I am being serious. The Cajun Halibut with vodka and dill cream sauce was also great The Pastas and the Sauces that accompany them reflect culinary brilliance. The Creme Brulee is excellent but I must say that the Tiramisu is the best I have tried anywhere in all my travels. The ambiance is better than expected. There is only so much you can do with a small place like that. There were fresh, expensive flowers at the tables. Ask for Andrew to be your server. Ask for a seat away from the door and you will be treated to some wonderful food that is artistically presented. This is Cin Cin at half the price and I kid you not. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and they close pretty late at night. There...the secret's out.

Rehanah's Roti & Trinidadian2518 St. Johns St, Port Moody
The one and only authentic roti place
Submitted Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 6:13pm [Dine in]

The food is fairly authentic and consistently good. The Roti Skin itself is lacking peas and there are too many big chunks of potato in the fully assembled rotis. They seem to run out of a lot of things that are on the menu. The drinks are overpriced and the rotis could be a dollar or two less considering that they are not paying Vancouver Rent/Lease Prices. There is no real ambiance there as it's mostly take out. Call before you go to make sure that they are around as the busy owner Rehannah takes her vacations once in a while. Rehannah is nice and easy to chat with. She is Trini all the way. She was not born in Pakistan. All in all, if you're craving a serious roti, this is the only place that offers it in B.C.

Kingston 11 Reggae Cafe1336 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Jamaican Food at it's best
Submitted Monday, March 16, 2009 - 6:42pm [Dine in]

Finally, we have a Jamaican Restaurant we can be proud of. The Kingston Reggae Cafe 11 serves a changing daily menu of meats that are Stewed, Curried or Jerked to perfection. The Stewd Oxtail, Jerk Chicken and Curry Goat are my absolute favorites. It's very hard for me to choose one dish so I usually get a combo of two items plus the rice and peas with salad. The Escovitched Red Snapper and Ackee and Salt (Cod) Fish are both mouth watering as well. I had a great Peas Soup one Saturday and a fantastic Jamaican Brunch on another Sunday. The Brunch was superb. The Ackee and Salt Fish came with two large dumplings, some fried plantain, steamed ground provision and Callaloo (Greens). The food is seasoned extremely well and it has some pepper in it. This is a word of warning to those who can't eat spicy food. Talk to them before you order and be prepared for some heat. This is the authentic experience. The owner and his wife are helpful and very friendly and my contact experience with their two other employees has been flawless. I can't even tell you how many times I have eaten there. This is my new addiction that I want to share with you all. My only wish is that they provide other paying options other than cash. Other than that, much thanks to the Prince of Jamaican Food for his efforts.

Pho Queen8368 Capstan Way, #1318, Richmond
Great Pho
Submitted Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 10:18pm [Dine in]

This is the way authentic Pho is supposed to be. The food here is fantastic. In Vietnam, many places use oxtails to make the soup base. People who say that Pho is greasy don't really know what Pho is about. Try to find a greaseless oxtail to cook with. Now you can understand how silly some of these comments sound.

My Vietnamese Friends and I absolutely love this place. I wish they were not so far away in Richmond. Most Vietnamese like myself live in East Van near Slocan. We can easily walk for Pho. However, every time I go to Richmond I make sure that I visit this place. The place is large and clean...even the wash rooms. There is some ambience and a large screen TV featuring Stage Shows from around Asia.

Try any of the Pho's. The Vermicelli and Rice Combos are great. The Shrimp Paste on a Sugar Cane Stick is truly authentic Vietnamese Food. The Grilled Jumbo Shrimp (Huge) was not bad as well. This place is all about the Pho. It's not really a Vietnamese Sandwich Stop like Ba Le. The cooks and the staff are all Vietnamese. They prepare the food the right way. This is not some Maggi, MSG infused nonsense that's passed off as Vietnamese Food. A quick rule of thumb...if the soup is a little brown, it's not Pho. Go to Pho Queen and try the real thing!!!

Moderne Burger2507 West Broadway St., Vancouver
Good Burgers and Shakes
Submitted Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 9:54pm [Dine in]

Pretty Good Burgers and the Shakes are awesome. Although the Menu is limited, the portions are very generous. The Service leaves a lot to be desired. It's a bit strange that they close at 8 on some nights for a burger joint especially in an area where parking is an issue. I wondered why the renovations took so long. I thought they were out of business. I would go back to eat there.

El Inka Latin Deli3826 Sunset Street, Burnaby
Great Peruvian/Columbian food
Submitted Friday, December 7, 2007 - 12:50am [Dine in]

A warm, friendly family run this business. The food is quite good and the portions were heaping. It's the best Peruvian/South American Food in Vancouver since Mirasol closed down. Mirasol had better ambience and the prices were much better. I can't believe that they have Arepas. That's very Colombian/Venezuelan. The great thing is that they make everything themselves and will proudly tell you so. You can order Tamales for Christmas and the New Year. They're not like Mexican Tamales...they're way better. The Ceviche and Anticucho are fantastic. In Peru, Ceviche can be a meal not just an appy. The Aji de Gallina and the Arroz con Pollo are just ok and could actually use some more meat. The Mondongo was not bad too. The Bistec O Lo Pobre and the Sancocho were nice. The Seco is the best plate item. You can't go wrong with this place.

Bon Cafe4909 Main Street, Vancouver
Great Pho
Submitted Sunday, October 28, 2007 - 10:57pm [Dine in]

Great Pho. This is the real Pho. Nice Large Portions. Not the MSG in Hot Water Deal. I can enjoy my food without having to order a whole pitcher of water. This is a hidden gem. I wish they would take Interac Payments though. I would go more often because they're not close to a Bank ATM Machine.
