Jean's Cakes and Pastries8346 112 Street, Delta
Delicious baked goods, made with love and real ingredients including vanilla, butter and cream
Submitted Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 4:04pm [Take-out]

I am in shock that no one has reviewed this bakery. It's been around for at least two years. It's my go to spot to pick up dessert. The cookies are delicious, I am fond of the lemon frosted sugar cookies. Cakes by the slice include passion fruit white chocolate slice. Cupcake flavours change daily. I recommend the chocolate pie if you need a dessert for a gathering, a small sliver will satisfy the chocolate cravings. AND she sells macaroons! Well worth the trip for good quality treats at a fairly reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Cafe Crepe874 Granville Street, Vancouver
Eat at the location beside winners/future shop
Submitted Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 3:46pm [Take-out]

There are cafe crepes all across the city. I find the location beside Future Shop to be the most charming because they have employees who are French and they take care in making your food. I adore the simple ham and cheese crepes or anything with nutella (with either strawberries or banana). It's a chain true but sometimes you just crave a crepe. They are priced a tad high but they aren't cheap with the fillings so it evens out. Close your eyes at the fat oozing out of the crepes and enjoy this once in a while treat! I've tried their panini and found it too bread-y and there isn't enough filling for my taste, so I stick to the crepes. I don't like eating in here, crepes are meant to be street food anyhow. The waits can be crazy long so bring a friend to chat with.

Goldies Pizza & Beer Lounge605 W Pender Street, Vancouver
pizza & booze
Submitted Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 3:39pm [Dine in]

Fantastic pizza! Available by the slice, or order a fresh whole pizza. For $3 plus change they serve you freshly warmed pizza by the slice on a real china plate. Fantastic, thin yet crisp crust that easily folds so you can get your pizza fix faster. Delicious fresh toppings, salty flavourful meats, just the right amount of greasy melted cheese. With pizza this good you have to grab a reasonably priced beer or wine. Only beef is that their wine selection is not that great, hopefully they will start to serve BC wine... and offer more than one choice of red and white! Highly recommended.

High Rise Pizza & Treats881 Carnarvon St, New Westminster
Go here for the tasty mexican food!
Submitted Wednesday, September 1, 2010 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

This place sells pizza by the slice (it's good as well, the veggie slice has heaps of toppings and the pizza sauce is nice and tangy.) But skip the pizza and go for the Mexican foods! They sell taco's, torta's, flan etc. I tried the el pastor taco and it was yummy, the meat was nicely seasoned, watch out for the green salsa they serve with it though it's super spicy! The portions here seem bigger then the taco joints downtown as well the owners are friendly and generous. The quality seems higher as well here. I love that they sell smaller portions of flan for dessert. Highly recommended. They close earlier some nights at 9pm so phone ahead before going. Also there is a serious lack of parking but being close to the New West skytrain makes up for it.

Aki Japanese Restaurant1368 West Pender Street, Vancouver
Excellent japanese place!!!
Submitted Tuesday, August 31, 2010 - 3:05pm [Dine in]

I was lucky enough to be invited for lunch here by an old friend. They offer a few daily lunch specials and I got a sushi combo, their cooked and grilled stuff especially looked good to. Has hints of "Japanese salarymen" about it as a place where men gather after work to drink while loosening their ties. Apparently this place is pretty old school and run by Japanese. The food is more homestyle and also has a few izakaya type dishes. A gem and even though it's located near Samba this place has it's own identity with a cool, smokey, underground vibe going on. My sushi was yummy, and I really liked this place, I will be returning to try the dinner menu. This place has a solid clientele so reservations are recommended. Not sure why the some other reviewers didn't like this place it's authentic and reasonably priced for a downtown Japanese joint. The portions were fair as well.

2 for 1 rolls
Submitted Tuesday, August 10, 2010 - 12:38pm [Dine in]

While dropping off clothes for alterations at the Pro Stitch I noticed this little sushi place inside the mall near Sears. They have 2 for 1 rolls, california on mondays and dynamite on tuesdays. I got the 2 dynamite for $4. It was decent, especially for the price it had one shrimp, krab mixture, cucumber and avocado. The rolls were fairly big as well. It's like food court sushi but a bit better, it was consistently busy with people buying bento boxes or the rolls. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit here but if in the area the 2 for 1 rolls are a good deal.

Maguro Japanese Restaurant10090 152nd Street, #141, Surrey
Better than expected
Submitted Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 6:25pm [Dine in]

So I'll review this positively, the portions will shrink and the price will increase by 20%. I've avoided this place because I didn't expect it to be good. Someone else reviewed it positively so I gave it a shot. There was someone I spied with a huge bento lunch box so I got what they had. It was huge! Lots of slices of beef terriyaki, not cut into small strips but a good size with veggies underneath. 5 pieces of generous tempura. 5 pieces of sashimi, including 3 wild sockeye. A full size dynamite roll containing crab as well as the shrimp. Typical miso and a tiny bowl of rice. All of this was about $13. Very filling and I had leftovers. Everything was freshly prepared and tasted good. Now the bad, and why the ambiance has a low rating, is that while the tables were cleaned off, the floor needed a good sweep. I would return if I were in the area and hopefully this positive review will not lead them to cut corners and lower portion sizes.

Sub Garden13482 72 Avenue, Surrey
Best sub's ever!
Submitted Wednesday, July 7, 2010 - 1:19pm [Dine in]

This place has amazing sub's. It's a true hidden gem. They roast chicken in-house and then freshly slice it for your sandwiches. The chicken comes in your choice of flavour like lemon herb. They also have herbed sub breads which are nicely soft and flavourful. (I think Bunsmaster supplies their bread.) There are lots of fresh toppings to choose from. They also offer a nice feta cheese topping option. Their shrimp sub is also nice. Something unique that they have here, but is sort of discontinued is a chili sub. It was so good. The service is a bit uneven, they seem friendlier to their regular clientele.

Bubble Queen8888 Odlin Crescent, Unit 1200, Richmond
Deluxe BBT... but a bit pricey
Submitted Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - 6:49pm [Dine in]

It's an adventure finding this place, I've never been in President's Plaza before. It's an interesting 3 level box shaped complex with parking in the interior courtyard. Bubble Queen is located on the first floor directly on Cambie street, beside a small pedestrian bridge and an open field. The BBT's here are amazing. It's like deluxe versions of BBT served elsewhere. They don't skimp on ingredients. I had the papaya slush, and while they didn't have fresh papaya they had frozen papaya chunks. The drink was loaded with fruit, as the fruit was frozen they didn't even add ice just some water as I hate milk. I chose the lychee jelly to go with it and had the fresh ripe Atulfo mango chunks on top. This place is a hidden gem, thanks to the prior reviews for their recommendation. The ambiance is decent however it's tiny, so I would recommend take-out. People phone in drink orders as well, to avoid waiting. I like their Bubble Queen logo. This is my new go-to BBT place to impress out of town guests as it's easy to combine this place with a trip to the airport and normally I try to avoid Richmond as I hate driving there.

The drinks are very yummy however they have now raised prices... I do think $5.50 for a oreo slushie is a tad expensive. At those prices the line between a snack beverage and a meal does start to blur. As for another dollar you could pretty much have a meal.

They still have a few unique drinks and if you go at a slower time they do handcraft your drinks with care and to your taste which is nice. But you are paying for it with the recent price increases.

They are sort of out of the way I hope they reconsider their pricing or offer a daily special of a choice between two drinks or something. Also as it's a smaller store it's hard to find seats if you choose to stay there to enjoy your drink.

Note that the regular drinks are still a decent value and comparable to other BBT places it's only the specialty bbt's that have seen the price increases.

Still recommended for decadent drinks! But at the prices they now charge for the good specialty drinks they should be throwing in a shot of booze or something.

Ziada Restaurant808 12th St, New Westminster
Something different for tasty take-away, north african food
Submitted Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - 5:30pm [Dine in]

Ziada is an ethiopean/eritrean restaurant. I was walking by it and lured in by the good smells. I decided to do take-away and it was a nice change from Chinese food. The owner/server was very friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes. I decided on the vegetarian sampler and half and half of a chicken berbere dish and a lamb dish with rosemary. Both of these were served on the injera crepelike flatbread that had a faint taste of sourdough, there was also extra injera rolled up on the side. The flavours of North Africa are similiar to India I find, though much tamer in terms of spiciness levels. I think most palates would like this food as it's similar to curry but mildly spiced. They can adjust the heat to spicy though if you like. The chicken dish was like a stir-fry as was the lamb, the meats were cut in smaller dices. I was expecting something a tad bit more saucy. The lamb was good and was all meat without gristle etc. but a tad bit chewy. If you order the meat dishes they unfortunately aren't served with veggies. The veggie sampler was a generous dollop of 5 different veggie dishes. The stand out was the partially ground chickpea dish. It was so flavourful and just something different from what I've ever had and tasty. The rest of the dishes were pretty good as well, the cabbage/potato curry, and lentil dish. The spinach was cooked nicely with just a bit of oil and onion. Unfortunately it was frozen spinach. There was also a green bean and carrot dish, and the green bean may have been frozen or canned as well. As it's summer it would have been nice if they did use fresh vegetables. They were still tasty but I prefer fresh. Note that they use copious amounts of oil in their dishes. Especially the meats. Luckily the injera absorbed a lot of the oil. Also if you eat in I think the dollops of dishes are served in little dishes so it wont be such a problem anyhow. They were extremely generous with the injera and we ate the rolled up portions as they weren't oily. We had lots of injera left over for the next day too. Recommended for something different, especially when you eat in and have one of their sharing platters for two. The value was pretty good too at around $10-$15 per person. It's too bad that sometimes some places like this don't open in a food court venue versus a restaurant. I think because most of the dishes are pre-prepared and actually improve in taste after stewing for a while it would lend itself to a food court perfectly.

Royal City Thai634 Columbia Street, New Westminster
New thai place with ayce from menu on weekends
Submitted Sunday, June 13, 2010 - 7:21pm [Dine in]

Note that they charge $2 for tea, without informing you of this charge. They offer a buffet on the weekends, and dishes are brought to your table. The menu was limited and most of the dishers were too greasy. Thai food is known to be flavourful but some of the dishes just lacked flavour and were salty to boot. I recommend the chicken wings, and spicy green curry. The calamari was alright and the ginger stirfry were also alright. Avoid the large eggrolls, greasy noodles, greasy basil stir-fry. The coconut tapioca pudding was terrible. Pity they didn't add a few fresh mango chunks to it. The salad is quite sad as well with no papaya shreds in site. The chicken seemed like it was better quality than the beef. There was a lack of seafood even some mussels would be nice. It's also odd that they don't offer a tofu option... tofu is cheap. On the positive side all of the food was freshly cooked, and the pacing of the dishes was great ensuring that the dishes were warm. The restaurant is also newly renovated and is nice inside. The booths are spacious and offer privacy.

Rehanah's Roti & Trinidadian2518 St. Johns St, Port Moody
Wow! Delicious Roti's! Authentic freshly made Trini food!
Submitted Thursday, June 3, 2010 - 12:02pm [Dine in]

I've avoided this place for so long because of all the hype... of course there couldn't be good trini food in Vancouver... I've been disppointed in my search for a delicious filled roti. Other restaurants even the Caribbean festival disappointed. A few were average but usually the roti is pre-made and tough. Imagine my surprise and delight when I enterred Rehanah's and after waiting was presented with a freshly cooked roti cooked to perfection it was very tender (probably lots of butter brushed on the tops of the roti), filled to the brim with the softest flavourful potato's. I picked the oddest flavour in the menu. The goat and shrimp roti. This surprisingly worked. The shrimps were the size of prawns and awesome. The goat is probably the best goat I've tried in the lower mainland. No gristle, no fat, just tasty tender meat without a gamey taste. I wonder who her supplier is. The fillings for this roti weren't dried out you could tell everything was freshly cooked that day. Combine all of that with the authentic Trini hot sauce that is doused before the roti is wrapped up and I was in heaven. Just delicious and very very satisfying, my quest for an excellent roti in the Vancouver area has ended. This lady can cook, the foods are all home-made style! The price is a tad high but well-worth it for the quality and one will fill you up, plus other places charge as much and are no where near the excellent quality Rehanah's Roti is. No wonder this place has such loyal patrons. While I was there, there was a steady stream of people. To be honest I'm already craving another roti, it was just that good! There are just a few tables. If you have yours to go be sure to get lots of napkins. This roti is up there with the ones I tried in Toronto (In Toronto I recommend Coconut Grove it's located near the mall downtown it's cheap and their housemade hot sauce is quite nice.) Also be sure to combine a visit to this place with a stop to the Japanese bakery Cake-Ya located a few streets away for some delicious low-sugar desserts. Port Moody has some food gems and it's a very pretty city as well!

Cake Ya2415 Clarke Street, Port Moody
Refined hand-crafted mildly sweet Japanese desserts
Submitted Thursday, June 3, 2010 - 11:34am [Dine in]

Thanks to the previous reviewer I made a trek out to the quaint village of Port Moody where time seems to have stood still. Nestled between the mountains and the water is the small store Cake-Ya where Japanese ladies make some excellent desserts. The main item they make are steamed creme caramel cups. I absolutely loved the black sesame one. The taste of the black sesame was there but it was subtle, combined with the creamy texture and the mellow sweetness of the caramel this was simply perfect. I tried the bottom half of a plain creme caramel cup but the caramel in this one seemed burnt, the scorched taste was too bitter so I didn't finish it. Also I had expected the plain one to taste of vanilla but there didn't seem to be vanilla flavouring. I would skip the plain flavoured one next time and try the other flavours. However the plain flavoured one was also the least sweet of the two I tried and if you are watching your sugar intake, I'd recommend that. The kind ladies offered over 4 kinds of samples of their baked goods. Everything was delicious. I ended up ordering the chestnut sponge cake because it looked pretty. Inside there were two layers of sponge cake with a thin layer of whipped cream, this was all topped by an interesting healthy sweet potato and chestnut icing on top. A few chestnuts decorated the top. There was a sweetness to the dessert but it wasn't overpowering. This was very yummy and healthy to boot. Very solid bakery, it's a true gem. Everything is freshly made, you can see the ladies preparing everything by hand in the large kitchen behind the counter. They did have the mochi strawberry dessert when I went and that looked quite pretty as well. The prices are quite fair as well. Well worth the trek to Port Moody. Especially as it's rare to find Japanese desserts in Vancouver especially the simple ones which to me taste the best and remind me of a dessert from a loving mom's kitchen. Also note that there aren't any seats so the desserts have to be taken to go, it's simply a bakery not a bakery cafe. Also be sure to run not walk to Rehanna's Roti's which is located a street over that place is fantastic too.

Dashed expectations
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 10:47pm [Dine in]

I was quite excited to try this Jamaican place. It's a unique place in that they wholesale to and supply other Carribean restaurants in the Lower Mainland. Chances are that you've eaten one of their patties without knowing it. At their retail/take-out place you can even buy frozen patties to take home. They also bake some traditional Jamaican breads and goodies. I went to try the jerk chicken. The spicing on the chicken was nice and the jerk bbq sauce was tasty. The rice and peas were a huge tasty portion. The few slices of tomato and cucumber garnish was boring. What irked me was the price for this meal.... for ONE quarter chicken leg and thigh it was almost $13. As this place isn't even a proper restaurant it's more of a take-away place. Nando's has a double quarter chicken leg and thigh meal with one side for under $10. I think I had the misfortune of ordering the worst things from their menu. I also ordered a chicken and potato roti. The shell was dry but tasty. The filling inside was quite dry. Unfortunately the chicken was bone-in. This was terrible because neither the menu nor the cashier mentioned this to me when I ordered it. It was so hard to eat. I really do not recommend the chicken curry roti. They have some unique fish dishes but at the moment I am not brave enough to try these. If I do return I will just buy the jerk chicken by the pound. Do I recommend this place? Yes because Vancouver has so few Jamaican restaurants. Just be wary of what you order and don't go in with too many expectations. Also I love trying hot sauces and there was none when I opened my order at home so be sure to ask for some.

Also what irked me was that the signage on the industrial complex buildings listing names this business as a greek bakery or something... it's actually hard to find the place.

Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

This place is hidden in an office/industrial complex. In fact the restaurant sign shares space with a security company signage. There is no ambiance, best for take-out. I tried a chicken biryani. It had ample halal meat in it and the dish tasted fresh. However the biryani rice consisted of mostly broken rice pieces. This is a huge no no as a good quality rice should be used for biryani's. Also the rice tasted quite strong and different almost as if they cooked the rice directly without washing it in clear running water first. This was more noticeable because the spicing for the dish was quite light and added an off-taste.

Sadly the next time I tried this place I opted for the butter chicken. It was terrible. Pale chunks of meat in a pale tomato / milk? / cream gravy. It was the worst butter chicken I had in my whole life.

We tried this place twice and the food just is not good we will not return. While the butter chicken was a complete culinary disaster the biryani was at least edible but not good. There are much better Pakistani/Indian restaurants stick to those. This place is inexpensive but what's the point of paying for food when it's so bad you can't even finish it.

Uneven...
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

I was so excited to find this place because I love the Desi Junction restaurants so when I saw this little sweets store with their logo on it I had to try it.

When I initially visited this sweets store it had just opened up so everything was tasty and fresh. I was so impressed.

Unfortunately on a return visit a few of the sweets were stale which ruined the taste.

I'm not sure if it's because their sweets aren't kept cool or if sweets just have a short shelf life and they are not getting rid of the older sweets before restocking with fresher made sweets. I don't see why they can't store the sweets in an airtight container or something as well.

They have barfi made with dates or dried figs with nuts. Maybe because figs have preservatives this didn't taste stale.

They also had some specialty drinks like almond milk but I haven't tried these.

I used to go to Calgary sweets before for Indian sweets and I never had a problem with some sweets being stale so they will still get my business til Desi's Sweet sorts out the stale tasting sweets issue.

I wish they would say what was freshly made that day so I would definately buy those.

If you do visit this place ask for a sample to ensure the sweet you are buying tastes fresh.

Outstanding, yummy pizza and it's vegetarian!
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 9:47pm [Dine in]

I remember trying this place ages ago and not really being wowed by it. I had the standard veggie pizza before. However this is a unique place that sells only vegetarian pizzas even the cheese has no rennet. They also offer some interesting toppings like cashew, tofu and paneer cheese. They have a few special recipe pizzas and we tried the gourmet veggie pizza. It looked amazing and tasted great. The pizza was actually very pretty. The toppings included spinach chiffonades, thinly sliced zucchini, small pieces of artichoke (I liked this as I am not that fond of artichoke), fresh garlic, and fresh tomato's on a base of ranch sauce. The toppings were fresh and flavourful. The pizza looked like it was made with care each bite had a topping it was great. I would expect this quality of pizza in Kits or something. It's a family run place in a strip mall but it's well worth seeking out. I liked that they appeared to be wearing hair-nets and it's an open kitchen. There are a few tables and chairs so you can eat-in. I would love it if they offered fresh basil as a topping even if in the summer. It would also be awesome if they offered eggplant. This place doesn't have rock-bottom pricing but the prices they charge are quite fair as it's a high quality product. Highly recommended, they also offer some apna style pizzas like palak paneer with complimentary cilantro's and chili's. I think non-vegetarians will even be wowed by the pizzas here as the gourmet veggie pizza was very savoury.

Lately I've been noticing that this BBT kiosk in the T&T food court area has gotten a lot busier. Little Tea House is a chain and I've noticed that other locations I've tried were terrible so that's why I didn't try this place for a while. Anyhow I'm glad I tried this place. It's a little cheaper than nearby Bubble World and the BBT tastes just as good. I really liked the fresh fruit slush I tried, the fruit flavour was strong and they didn't skimp out on the fruit. As long as they maintain the quality and prices I will return. Some of the counter people are strange though.

Changes for the worse
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 12:02pm [Dine in]

Unfortunately I can't recommend this place anymore.

They used to have a good cute interesting bento box, that always had tempura.

Now they never have tempura it's usually agadashi tofu or 2 pieces of takoyaki. In the main entree area of the bento box they include 6 pieces of boring california roll, this used to contain terriyaki chicken. Now the terriyaki chicken portion is cut in half, and is mainly rice. Quite disappointing especially as it's small slivers of chicken. Very little protein and chicken skin.

They sometimes include sunomono but the portion size is so small it comes in the container that usually contains tempura sauce.

Their nigiri has meagre thinly sliced toppings. Avoid.

The rolls are decent, ask for them to freshly prepare them for you, don't just take the pre-made ones. The party trays aren't bad either here. I like the croquette.

Avoid the pork ramen.

I was excited to see that they offer takoyaki including pumpkin flavour, but the texture is too fluffy I don't think it's cooked like it is at the night market, I'm just going to stick to the takoyaki at the Richmond Night Market.

The main problem is that their prices have crept up and I would much rather just eat in a full service Japanese restaurant than at a food court kiosk where I have to pay for a cup of tea in styrofoam. I think that the owners have just gotten too greedy.

Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 11:21am [Dine in]

The service here and the kitchen is highly disorganized. They seem to have a manager that at least tries to smooth problems over by offering something complimentary but that should be a last resort. These problems just should not be happening. I'm not quite sure what the problem is? Nepotism? Lack of staff training? Perhaps. Regardless this place attracts patrons, it's consistently busy. I went at lunch and almost all tables were full. It seems to be an oddly Vancouver thing that restaurants seem to assume you have an 1.5hr to 2 hours to enjoy leisurely lunches. Regardeless our server didn't inquire if we were in a rush, and somehow our orders weren't entered into the cue til later. This was a long lunch. However as I was catching up with friends it wasn't that bad. The ambiance is simply beautiful yet comfortable, lots of gleaming wood (oak?), the fabrics chosen for chair seats worked nicely, stone accents, high ceilings. Everything was sparkling clean and it looked brand new even though it's been open for a while. By the time we got our food we were frankly starving so everything did taste good. It wasn't excellent but it was good. Not sure why the other reviewers dinged them on their food so much. The portions were filling. The neighbouring table beside us just had appetizers and those portions were big. I had the mushroom soup with a homemade veggie burger and it was decent. The soup was full of mushrooms. The relish on the veggie burger didn't really work but it wasn't offensive. Next time I would add cheddar. The veggie burger itself was quite large and it actually looked like a meat patty but didn't seem to have soy in it which I liked, it had a earthy savoury note from the mushrooms. For the ambiance the price was fairly decent at lunch, it hovers at around $10-$15. A must try is their homemade ice creams & sorbets. 5 scoops of flavours of your choice come in a waffle bowl, I was sad to see they didn't have Irish cream flavoured ice cream though. I didn't like the lavender creme brulee, as the lavender flavour was far too strong, I would have preferred cardamon creme brulee. Would I return? Definately I loved the ambiance, it was like you were in Ireland but I would just expect to be waiting for food, and the service to be uneven. It was odd when after we finished our meal we had to wait for ages for our server to return to ask us if we wanted dessert, basically whenever we needed our server she had disappeared. Also note that it gets extremely noisy in there. as the high ceilings amplify sound but that just adds to the fun.
