Watermark1305 Arbutus St., Vancouver
Think twice about dessert!
Submitted Saturday, July 4, 2009 - 11:20am [Dine in]

I ate at Watermark at Kits Beach last night with my family. The setting is stunning - only a few such views in Vancouver. The food was pretty good. The sablefish was tasty, as were the mashed potatoes. I tried some salmon and halibut too, and those were good. We ordered the tiramisu cheesecake, and the dollop of cream on top tasted very rancid. I thought the music was a bit loud and distracting, but it might be just the thing if you're heading out to the bars or clubs afterwards.

I would highly recommend this place for out-of-town visitors, friends going for drinks, or those hoping to spot David Suzuki!

Hibachi Grill & Sushi8369 Granville, Vancouver
Good take out sushi
Submitted Saturday, July 4, 2009 - 11:10am [Dine in]

I ordered the spider roll, which has deep-fried crab. It was delicious! The tuna and salmon sushi were also very good. This is an eat-in or takeout restaurant. The server was very friendly, and even brought tea as I was waiting for the food. The food was ready in about 10 minutes. Total was $16, and I was pretty satisfied.

Nobusan Japanese Fusion Gourmet4351 No.3 Rd, #170, Richmond
Great New Sushi Place!
Submitted Wednesday, March 11, 2009 - 11:20pm [Dine in]

This was my second time to Nobusan, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who likes Japanese fusion. Tonight we had the Black Dragon roll (tempura prawn with eel on the outside) which was delicious. The first time we went, the chef treated us to a few pieces of Black Dragon. The salmon nigiri was great, as was the vegetable udon. The edamame was a bit heavily salted for my liking. Nobusan is now licensed, so you can enjoy a nice big Asahi beer. The server was very keen (maybe a bit too much so), but you can tell she is very eager to gain return customers. The decor is nice; although with my short attention span, I found the big TV a bit distracting. They also have jazz or pop music playing softly. We ate a lot, shared a big beer, and the bill was $40. Try it out!!

Temaki Sushi2156 W. Broadway, #2, Vancouver
Solid Sushi Experience
Submitted Sunday, January 11, 2009 - 11:49am [Dine in]

I highly recommend Temaki Sushi on West Broadway near Arbutus. I have eaten there about 5 times, and each time have left feeling very satisfied. Our party of 4 arrived around 8PM on a Friday. We waited until about 8:30 to be seated. I thought the Real Crab Roll was excellent. We had a deep fried salmon roll, which made the salmon a bit dried out - not too surprising. The bill, including tip, was under $100 for our group (of four). That included 2 large beers, and enough sushi and noodles to fill me up. The servers are attentive.

Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
If apple pie were a benchmark...
Submitted Sunday, October 5, 2008 - 7:47pm [Dine in]

This place sets the standard!! The apple pie was a self contained mountain of goodness. The pastry was just right, not too greasy or salty. A lovely flaky shell.

The blueberry tea I had was also great on a rainy evening. The handful of times I've been to Sweet Revenge, the server always asked if I wanted more water for my tea.

The place is not the easiest to find if you are driving by, but its worth hunting for! We waited about 15 minutes to get a table, but if you manage to get inside it is a cosy wait. Even though we were seated at a small table with not tonnes of space around us, we felt quite at home and comfortable.

At 6-8 dollars a dessert, I rate Sweet Revenge solid for its value.

Chica's Latin Heritage Foods8722 Granville street, Vancouver
Makes a Gringo Smile
Submitted Thursday, October 2, 2008 - 11:02pm [Dine in]

I had the chicken tamale, which I was told was made in the Venezuelan style. This had some curry in it I think, and was wrapped in a vine/banana leaf. The chicken was actual real chicken, with a bone to prove it! None of this mashed up chicken nugget stuff. Delicious! The salsa and lettuce that come with it were also great.

My girlfriend had the chicken burrito, along with the rice and beans (extra). The little bite I had convinced me I will be a return customer. Super friendly lady at the counter. Just over twenty bucks for the meal with 2 pops. Great eat in or take out value.

Pho Hoa8500 Alexandra Rd, Richmond
Comfort Pho'
Submitted Saturday, September 27, 2008 - 12:58am [Dine in]

This was my second time to the Richmond Pho Hoa, third time to a Pho Hoa. I had the steak pho and fried springrolls. Nothing too adventurous, but I was very satisfied with the quality of my soup. The large bowl is huge, and generously loaded with vermicelli.

After taking our order, our server let us eat in peace. Also, there is no need to flag anyone down to get your bill - it comes with your order.

The food comes promptly, is substantial, and can be enjoyed in the relaxed ambiance. Solid value indeed!
