Naam, The2724 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
I guess so

I'll go there on occasion for the nam burger. It's something ive learned to enjoy over the years. I can't say there's anything else ill buy there because i dont have enough faith in them to make it right. The fries, naam burger and poppyseed dressing make it alright. But really, if i want average food I'll go to sophies. The milkshakes are disapointing. It's kind of like what youd make at home with frozen fruit and in a small glass, except for $5.

Consistently good yes; Outstanding no.

Capers Community Market2496 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Probably best in the mornings

This is a great place to grab a latte and snack. There's a breakfast wrap which is hard to argue with. There's a tuna sandwhich too which is comparable to Thomas Haas. There's good bagels to. It might not be a great idea to come later on though because the food might lose freshness. They can fix you up with a breakfast that will make you happy in the mornings.

Be careful

The sushi is usually good, but not restaurant quality (or even close). The boxes are much bigger than the price suggests, so if you buy two, then you might have trouble finishing the second. They use a lot of rice and too little meat in the cheap california rolls. Some of the other fish one's are good but can be overwhelming (spicy tuna). I'd reccomend you find a roll you like, and buy one thing and a couple pops and pocky. They sell some crazy cheezies that taste like chocolate and stuff. They've got two eyes on the package in the noodles section. These are very good. They have some imported pops which are expensive but are a nice change from regular sodas. The mayonaise is better I think and they sell cheap tofu deserts.

Andreas Restaurant153 16th Street West, North Vancouver
Know how to have a good meal there.

I read alot of complaints here about Andreas. I don't think their unfounded, but these people walked into this situation themselves. Andreas is a place where you get a pizza from. You either get them to deliver it or pick it up. You nornally wouldn't sit down there to eat. Andreas pizza is bigger than rebelious tomato and has alot of cheese.
If the power goes out call them and they can help you. If you need a big meal before school or work then their pizza will get you going for a good while. If it's after 12am then theirs not much open in North Van. There's fast food but you probably have to drive there and it tastes bad . I like the vegetarian pizza. Subways open to but for the same money they might leave you hungry.

Uprising Breads Bakery1697 Venables Street, Vancouver
Commercial Drive Counter-Culture
Submitted Wednesday, April 18, 2007 - 1:41am [Dine in]

Uprising Breads has long been a fixture in the Commercial Drive area. Founded on the ideals of communisim, uprisng breads seeks to promote it's nonsuperiorital work environment. Popular amongst cocaine addicts, the homeless, the mentally ill and the exhippies, it is always a colorful place to enjoy a coffee. One day you may see a neonazi in full uniform, while the next you may see a transgendered man in a burka, and another a black jewish man talking to himself; it's that diverse. Not only is the food of reasonable quality, but the staff are also very inteligent; A mixed consortium of exheroin users, anarchists and college dropouts, they've always got something interesting to say. Sometimes their change counting is a little off, but it's not because they're bad people, but rather from effects of last nights bong smoking, still lingering in their consciousness. Pot smoking, by the way is allowed if not encouraged on the outside chairs, and the staff have heroin overdose counteracting medication, as well as the necessary training to deal with the situation when it arises; which it frequently does. Overall the ambience is similar to that of an opium den: which wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to call it one. Homosexual clowns, morbidly obese people and psychotic vietnam vetrans are also common sites. Uprising Breads is hence not a place for the family. Nor should it be. However it reprsesnts an outlet of youthful anger; which is accomplished by merging their opposing communist ideals with that of a capatalist society. Uprising Breads is, and has been a brewing pot for a revolution. When it will arrive they don't even know.
