Kiss Yo Mama4926 Imperial Street, Burnaby
Faaaantastic!
Submitted Thursday, May 31, 2007 - 11:37pm [Dine in]

My company had a group lunch at Kiss Ya Mama today and we all walked away with a big smile on our faces.

Food was fantastic. I don't usually eat much for lunch but I finished everything in my plate--as a compliment to the chef. Lisa first teased our appetitle with her Jamaican cocktail patties (with beef) as her and her crew were preparing the buffet. Then we all anxiously lined up for the buffet, which included 2 salads, Lisa's spicy jerk chicken, tasty curry chicken, southern bbq ribs, rice and peas with coconut milk, and later on her 'fall-off-the-bone' bbq chicken. I didn't try the bbq chicken because it came last, and I was beyond full at that point. But everything else was remarkable. My favorite was her spicy chicken--the meat was tender and every bite was flavorful; another co-worker couldn't stop saying how good the rice was (I had to agree, it seemed like such a simple dish yet so memorable); and another co-worker really enjoyed the ribs, which was saucy but was not overly done--just the right amount of flavor. To quote how he likes the ribs, "they melted off the bones"

Lisa and her crew were all very friendly and have this very upbeat attitude. Lisa was hilarious and made a sad occasion (it was a goodbye lunch for one of our favorite managers) a fun, full-of-laughs experience. The service was not the professional, attentive type that one would receive at places like C Restaurant, but more like a nice, relaxed style that you get at your neighborhood family restaurant. During the lunch I kept thinking about the dinner scene in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", because that was the kind of homey atmosphere they created.

Overall the experience was nothing like what we expected, but it was definitely a good one. Oh did I mention Lisa's banana bread was one of the best I've had? It was soo good many of us asked for a second piece, in spite how full we all were. One guy even got 4, I guess that really says how good it was. :)

hoping for better service next time
Submitted Sunday, February 11, 2007 - 1:14pm [Dine in]

Food - I had the seafood rice pot, and my friend has the steak. I really liked my food--my plate was filled with large scallop, prawns, and mussels with a samba chilli saucethat were just done right. If I'm to have any complaints about the food, it would be the appetizer is too small... But then again, that's to be expected in restaurants like this...

Service - Major complaints about the speed of their service! It's sooo slooow. I had to wait for 30+ minutes for my drink to come and I had to remind the waitress to bring my drink. But to their credit, I don't think it's because they're ignorant or anything, I think the staff do try, but they're still slow. Perhaps due to inexperience?

Ambiance - Liked the setting/decor of the restaurant A LOT. They had live performance (jazz/R&B) on some of the nights and the singers were great!

Overall - Probably would go back again, with hopes that given some time there will be better service next time.

Tony's Fish & Oyster Cafe1511 Anderson St, Vancouver
Busy little place
Submitted Friday, April 28, 2006 - 10:24am [Dine in]

This is your typical fish-n-chips restaurant, a busy little place packed with people and the incredible smell of fried seafood. I was there with a friend for a quick dinner before catching a show on Granville Island. We ordered the seafood dinner for 2 ($28 something) and a bowl of clam chowder. The food came pretty quickly and the amount was just right or us (2 pieces of fried cod, 2 friend oysters, plenty of fried clams and shrimps, and of course how can you have a fish-n-chips dinner without the chips?). I'd recommend the place for a *very* casual dinner, or if you feel like having some cheap fried seafood and happen to be in the area, this would be the place to go.

Ganache Patisserie1262 Homer Street, Vancouver
Taste of heaven!
Submitted Friday, April 28, 2006 - 10:09am [Dine in]

My friend and I, both picky dessert lovers, went to Ganache last Sunday for a casual 'afternoon tea'. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the lady behind the counter and was offered a sample of their chocolate banana cake--very tasty. Then we spent quite a few minutes standing in front of the dessert freezer wow-ing the wide variaties of dessert they have. Having difficulties to pick 1 each, we ended up getting 4 pieces of cakes: Rose et Pamplemousse, Matcha-Exotique, Coco-mango, and Gateau St. Honore au Chocolat. It was a taste of heaven, not to mention the colors and the embellishment of each piece was quite a treat to the eyes too. To enhance the taste of the dessert, we also ordered some tea (something Rouge...) to go with them too. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and our sweet teeth were thoroughly satisfied!!!

Needless to say...
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2006 - 6:12pm [Dine in]

The food was incredible, two thumbs up! (Enjoyed EVERY dish that I've tried.) The service was a little disappointing because the place is always so busy. The decor is nice but I found the seats were tight and the music is a bit too loud to have a good conversation. Despite that I'd still go back there again and again just for the food.

Alibi Room157 Alexander St, Vancouver
Quiet little place
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2006 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

I was looking for a place for a nice quiet dinner and that was exactly what I found at the Alibi Room. The night I was there (last Thursday) it wasn't busy at all, so we got to choose our own spot to sit. Once we were seated, our waitress soon came to greet us and took our drink orders. We had the satay beef tenderloin for appetizer - $10 for 2 kabobs - which was a bit pricey but was very tasty. For the main course I had a spinach salad with goat cheese and some nuts (there were something else but I can't remember), which I enjoyed and the portion was just right for me. If there's anything I found they were short of, was that the menu selections were not as extensive as what they have on their website and I hope our beautiful waitress could've smiled a little more. But overall both my company and myself had a good time there and would love to go back to try out their brunch or late night snacks. :)
