Fiction3162 W Broadway, Vancouver
Solid, but not yet outstanding
Submitted Saturday, August 18, 2007 - 11:07pm [Dine in]

Wanted dinner in Kits, and Fiction had garnered good reviews on dinehere.ca. We were looking for a pleasant Saturday dinner - were surprised to find the place almost deserted at 7PM. Never did figure out why - its an overall solid performance although no true individual standouts. Started with the spinach / chevre / strawberry salad - nicely presented and tasty, but the vinaigrette could be made to stand out more. Pancetta in the salad doesn't really work. Went on to the BBQ chicken pizza - again. solid, but not a stand-out. Best of the night was the double-chocolate cake dessert (the oatmeal raisin cookies accompanying the bill were also nice). Good, attentive service. Worth a try - that's no fiction.

Favorito Pasta Trattoria552 West Broadway St., Vancouver
Pasta in the 'hood
Submitted Saturday, August 18, 2007 - 6:40pm [Dine in]

Normally, we'd stay in Kits while visiting YVR, but could only find a B&B right by City Hall. So we're looking for decent dining on Broadway east of Cambie. Generally, this would seem to suggest Thai, but we'd had Asian the night before so we looked for Italian nearby. Favorito filled the bill with a friendly atmosphere and generous portions (we'd recommend the half sizes of pasta unless you're truly hungry). Nothing really wowed us, but nothing really disappointed us either - although the raspberry ice / white chocolate gelato for dessert did stand out. Wine by the glass is quite limited in selection.

Flying Tiger, The2958 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
A lovely surprise
Submitted Saturday, August 18, 2007 - 6:29pm [Dine in]

We were trying to revisit The Living Room and discovered it had been replaced with the Flying Tiger. We decided to try it anyway. We had the samosa/pakora plate, steamed dumplings, and the duck confit with the crepes. Everything was very good but the coconut chutney with the samosas was the stand out. There was a very good choice of wines by the glass including selections from Blasted Church Vineyard. We were seated at the food bar so we could see the preparation of all the dishes. We wanted to try everything that went out. Service was attentive and genuine.
