Terracotta Modern Chinese52 Alexander Street, Vancouver
Mediocre food at best, ambiance is just okay
Submitted Friday, April 15, 2011 - 12:30pm [Dine in]

Came here for some drinks and some appy's and I would say the service the girls provided was very good service - perhaps b/c they were not too busy? If someone was just getting into this type of food, I can see how they would rate a bit higher. The menu items did not stick out which had tradtional Cantonese style type items,.common Japanese items, and a bit of Taiwanese snack items with a more hip name attached to them - it may trick the average Joe. So I am not too sure what type of theme and food this place actually serves, it's like a mixture of Asian cuisine. I am what you would call an izakaya / Asian fusion connoisseur and this place is just gets an average - do not recommend unless you want to get served mediocre Asian food on western style plates.

Finch's Tea & Coffee House353 West Pender Street, Vancouver
Fresh Baguette's anyone?
Submitted Friday, April 15, 2011 - 12:20pm [Dine in]

Came here a month ago and had a great time. Their baguettes were fresh and their cuts of meat and blue brie was also fresh. Not a vegetarian myself, but the veggie baguette was really good - jam packed lots of fresh veggies and cheese. Their coffee here is pretty decent too. Ambiance is bright, nostalgic-like cottage feel.

The only thing that would have made this experience a better was a staff recommendation. One fellow recommended a salad that was identical to the baguette sandwich we had. My favourite was the baked blue brie with roasted walnuts and proscuitto. Definitely come here again and try their other baguettes and their breakfast!

Shiro3096 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Decent sushi along cambie corridor
Submitted Friday, April 15, 2011 - 12:13pm [Dine in]

Dined here after work on a Thursday and the sushi and cooked food was pretty decent. It is hard to find a Japanese run and operated joint in Vancouver nowadays. If you are comparing this to it's closest rival Toshi's on 16th and Main, I would say the sushi here isnt as fresh and the price is a bit higher - makes sense since they probably pay higher in rent for being on the west side.

Mainly had nigiri sushi: toro, anago, sake, hotate, amaebi (didnt deep fry head due to different type of prawn served). I would say the nigiri was pretty fresh and better then most sushi places. Also had negitoro, negihamachi, and chopped scallop roll w/tobiko. The negihamachi used a different cut of the meat and it didnt taste like the usual yellow tail.

If Toshi's is busy and has a super long line up, I recommend coming here as a secondary choice just minutes away. Would definitely come back again and try other items such as the baked eggplant (they ran out).

Three Lions Cafe1 East Broadway, #1, Vancouver
Food has changed, not as tasty and economical
Submitted Friday, April 15, 2011 - 12:06pm [Dine in]

Three lions used to have the best zucchini sticks in town and were served long uncut using their special panko breaded tempura batter. Now the sticks are cut into 2 1/2 to 3 inch long fingers with more batter in proportion to the zucchini. Had the pie with mash and the pie crust came burnt - the price paid also didnt justify the miniature sized helping.

On the flip side, they are one of the few in town who have strongbow on tap. The British poutine was also good.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
Do you want consistent tasty hot ramen? Come to Kintaro
Submitted Monday, March 1, 2010 - 4:55pm [Dine in]

Kintaro is a Japanese ramen noodle shop. Best known for it's consistent noodle texture and broth. From my experience, its the best ramen you can eat in Vancouver away from Japan. If you like the typical shoyu or miso ramen, that is quick, hot and tasty - I highly recommend this joint. I have also tried their gyozas here and they are not bad, but not special, just your typical Japanese dumpling.

Ambiance is almost like a wonton house, not exceptionally clean but not dirty. If you get a seat by the bar, you can see the cooks at work boiling the noodles and getting the broth ready. Highly recommended if you are a ramen lover.

Aki Japanese Restaurant1368 West Pender Street, Vancouver
Local gem
Submitted Monday, March 1, 2010 - 4:39pm [Dine in]

This local Japanese restaurant has been around for a number of years. It is hidden away downstairs on Thurlow near Fantacity Karaoke and Samba Brazilian resto. Lunch time attracts the local business crowd and often has lunch special combos, my fav is the black cod meal - probably the best in Vancouver the way it's grilled (includes rice, miso soup, and potato salad) and kaki furii (deep fried oysters with rice). Ensure you make a reso the day of or atleast a day ahead.

For dinner, many of the lunch menu items are also offered. My all time favourite is the robata chicken skin lightly salted. Been many times for both lunch and dinner.

All staff are Japanese speaking which make the experience even better if you like the ambiance to be authentic and traditional! If you want traditional Japanese, robata / bento style type of food (not izakaya) come to Aki. Highly recommended!
