Bistro 101 at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts1505 W 2nd Avenue, #101, Vancouver
Pleasant Dinner
Submitted Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 7:50pm [Dine in]

Firstly, the only negative thing about this place is trying to eat there. Reservations have to be made
weeks in advance due to its popularity.

The evening buffet is now $35.00/person, still reasonable if you think about the variety of
appetizers and desserts buffet that's part of your dinner. This last Friday they served as appetizers
squid, prawns, steamed clams and mussels in wine sauce, seared albacore tuna, and so on.

Desserts included eclairs, tarts, cakes, macaroons, ...

The main dish included seared duck breast, salmon fillet and steak.

Since it is a teaching school, it is always interesting to try the various dishes prepared by the students
and we have never had the same meal twice. Definitely a must try if you have an adventurous palate.

Burgers Etc. BBQ House4091 Hastings St., Burnaby
Nothing to Rave About
Submitted Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 7:41pm [Dine in]

Went to try this for the 1st time with high expectations as we were looking for a place that
knows how to do BBQ properly. Well, we got BBQ meats alright, it was cooked but they
ribs should have "fall off the bone" tender meat and the meats weren't even marinated at
all! They just slap on the sauce before serving. What a disappointment!

I had the pulled pork burger and ask for a some raw onions on it. we were charged $0.52 for it.
We were asked if we wanted chipote mayo with the fries and we said yes and were charged $1.00
per little dish (which was NOT listed on the menu by the way).

Besides the nickel and diming charges, I think they need to do a much better job on BBQ
since that's the main thing of the place.

Pinpin Restaurant6113 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Pricey Food but fair quality
Submitted Friday, June 28, 2013 - 3:59pm [Dine in]

Was in the neighborhood and decided to try this place. Looked inside and almost all the tables were full. I am not Filipino and so am not familiar with the names and the food at all. Ordered 2 of their combo dishes: 2 skewers BBQ chicken with rice and some kind of pickled veggie and a slice of cucumber and tomato; 3 thigh pieces of grilled lemon-grass chicken. It came with the same sides as the BBQ chicken. The BBQ chicken was almost like teriyaki flavored and the lemon-grass chicken was ok. Cost for each dish is about $9.95. We also ordered what I thought was a "spring roll"/wrap appetizer. It was a boiled veggie wrap, with chopped garlic in it and served with a sweet soy sauce. The wrap was $5.95ish, which I definitely thought was over-priced. Total was about $27.00 and I still felt hungry afterwards.

Fulin Hot Pot Restaurant3025 Lougheed Hwy, #780, Coquitlam
Reasonable price for Hot Pot Lunch
Submitted Saturday, February 25, 2012 - 11:27pm [Dine in]

Just tried it today. Their lunch hot pots are from $9.90-$12.50. Dinnertime is AYCE.
Dinner is $19.98/Adult. $11.98 for 11 and under. Says on order sheet, 2 hr time limit for eating and
$3.00/plate for wasted food.

We, my husband, 12 year old son and I, ordered 2 hot pot lunches, Regular broth, (otherwise $5-$8 for
special broth). We got 1 dish of free sauce per order, otherwise, $1/sauce. The sesame sauce was ok, but
I thought it needed some more soy sauce (soy sauce is not available on the table, but chili sauces are!?)

I never had "Japanese Ponzu" sauce, so I ordered that. I don't know how it's suppose to taste but I thought it needed some more saltiness, too. Otherwise, the 2 lunch orders were enough to feed 2 adults and 1 child. The place looks like it is family run and it is very small. It can seat 3-6 on their small tables,but they only have 1 bigger, long table at the back (seats 10-12).

Under going changes
Submitted Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

haven't been back for a year. Food is still ok but lunch is now $13.98 and Dinner is $18.98 so it is not such as good deal as before. They are now pushing the $4.00 drinks and $3.00 hot tea at the start of the meal so check their website before you go.

Pantry Restaurant, The425 6th Street, New Westminster
Poor Food Service at Weekend Brunch
Submitted Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 12:34pm [Dine in]

Haven't been there for a long time, so went again last Sunday. I was reminded why. Food is ok but for a AYCE buffet. it seemed they were deliberately slow in refilling the food. Even the potatoe salad stayed empty all the time we were there. (around 11:00-12:00) and their buffet runs from 9:00-2:00. they refilled the pancakes, bacons and sausages, but the other lunch type hot foods stayed empty and people were scraping the bottom of the pan for the curry sauce to go on the rice (I'm not making this up).

on the other hand, the waitress was friendly and attentive.
