Honey's403 North Road, #101, Coquitlam
AWESOME fried chicken at a cool Korean Hof
Submitted Tuesday, January 18, 2011 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

KFC should stand for Korean Fried Chicken. Ever since tasting this stuff I haven't craved the Colonel's lousy 11 herbs & spices. Not one single time. But I crave Honey's fried chicken almost every day. The plain one with no sauce is so crunchy and delish -- reminds me of little one-off country fried chicken joints you stop at on your way to your favorite bass fishing hole.

For the more adventurous, the yangneom chicken (same thing but slathered a spicy-sweet Korean sauce) is a great way to get all hot & messy. Great Korean dishes too like spicy noodles with rice cakes, corn, kimchee pork .. I'd avoid the raw oysters though. I didn't like 'em, but to be fair I've only ever tried 3 varieties that I cared for.

I think they're only open after 4pm and stay open until 1am. Great for late night munchies. Place looks like a pub or ski lodge type bar that fell out of an 80's time warp. It's a trippy, cozy place to kick back with beer & buddies.

Vera's Burger Shack1455 West Broadway, Vancouver
Best burger? Meh. Harvey's beats 'em any day
Submitted Saturday, April 5, 2008 - 2:09am [Dine in]

OVERALL: I don't get all the readers' choice awards. I just do not agree. Harvey's is precisely the same thing, but better, faster, cleaner, tastier and cheaper.

FOOD: I ordered the daily $9.99 special combo. The onion rings were greasy and had the tinny flavour of overused unchanged fry oil. The burger bun is nice and fluffy. The patty is definitely real meat, big and has great texture. Still, it's bland. Admittedly Harvey's patties aren't as fresh as Vera's, but Harvey's have an incredible char-grilled flavour that can't be beat by any fast food joint. Not even Vera's. Thank goodness my Vera's burger of the day came with Provolone and bacon to combat the blandness. You can also order any or all of all their dozen or so burger toppings, including an awesome BBQ sauce. But hey, you can at Harvey's too, for a cheaper price.

PRICE: Daily specialty burger combo for $9.99 with fries/onion rings and a drink is an OK deal. But ordering regular menu item gets pricy. Prices are the same as sitting in a comfy restaurant with table service .. except you ain't and there isn't. This is fast food. There are cheaper, better fast food and sit-down restaurant burgers out there.

SERVICE: It's a quick-serve burger joint so don't expect much. Still, though, very friendly, helpful cashier/counter guy.

AMBIANCE: Kitchy cute. Small, cramped, not the cleanest tables. Cold, too, when they leave the doors open. I mean, I'm all for fresh air on a warm day. But on a cool spring day it's only great for the guys in the kitchen. Meanwhile all the tables are directly in front of the open door. You have no choice but to freeze.

Kiss Yo Mama4926 Imperial Street, Burnaby
Trust me, you'll wanna kiss HER mama
Submitted Thursday, May 31, 2007 - 10:02am [Dine in]

On seeing the "Spice of Africa" sign outside we thought we were in for African fare. Instead we were pleasantly surprised to learn the location, under the new management of Lisa Brown & "Kiss Ya Mama," now offers soul food.

A warm, friendly Caribbean feel greets you when you walk into this cozy place. It has that easy, laid-back ambiance of the tropics. So mistakenly, we sidled up to the counter to order as one does in a typical Caribbean restaurant. The owner cheerfully ushered us back to a table where her friendly and charming colleague Xavier waited on us hand & foot with great info and meal suggestions.

Every bite was just faboo. My husband had a rich tasty stewed chicken. I tried the sample platter offering a little bit of everything: peas & rice, curry, jerk pork etc.. It was so darn good we hired them to cater our next party with this plus dahl puri and a to die for sweet potato pie.

On top of this all, we were thrilled to learn Chef Lisa Brown's heart and soul pours bountifully over into more than just her delicious Caribbean and soul food dishes. Spreading the love, she dedicates much of her time and effort to feeding sumptuous meals to the less fortunate. She also teaches students the ins & outs of running a restaurant business. It is no wonder superstars such as Snoop Dogg love her. She can be seen on the Food Network this summer on the "Superstar Chef Challenge."

Hey Lisa, can I kiss YOUR mama?
