What's the hype?
Submitted Saturday, February 26, 2005 - 8:52am [Dine in]

I had a Vera's burger when I was really hungry - and it didn't do a thing. Didn't have the juiciness I expected, and the bun was quite typical. Maybe the condiments would have made a difference, which I didn't add coz it costed more and the one single burger was already $5 or so.

incredible value!
Submitted Saturday, February 26, 2005 - 8:50am [Dine in]

Yes, even though I still couldn't differentiate between Viet and Cambodian cuisine after eating here, I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken Salad. Dinner came to $11 pp (incl tax and tips!), and we even had leftovers. Way more interesting than going to a typical diner.

Little Mexico Cantina3131 Chatham St., #150, Richmond
wd go back JUST 4 the home made sour cream
Submitted Saturday, February 26, 2005 - 8:47am [Dine in]

Authentic family run Mexican restaurants are rare in Vancouver - this was a nice delight. The small room is decorated with Mexican flair, the color of Sangria reflected everywhere. All sauces are made from scratch, and the mole sauce in their Thin Mexican Pizza was not too sweet or overpowering. Even their black beans and pinto beans (sides) were marinated with some Mex spices I haven't experienced before. Portions were just right, leaving me room to enjoy the free nachos and Mex rice. A delightful change from Shrek sized portions they serve up elsewhere, such as stuffed, gigantic 10 inch burritos chock full of canned beans.

Now this is real Mex - unlike the Taco Bell, Las Margaritas, Pepitas pretenders.

Gotta love the cheap food and attitude
Submitted Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 4:52pm [Dine in]

The dimly lit restaurant has chairs and tables from the 80's - not the most comfy but delightfully funky. Quotations comparing Bush to Hitler - so true. Servers have a genuine attitude rather than a fake "how are you have a wonderful evening" smile. HUGE and yummy salads and pasta - Must try their Mango Forte - pasta cooked in coconut mango sauce.

asian fusion tat tastes good
Submitted Tuesday, December 28, 2004 - 12:24am [Dine in]

whenever someone tries to make fusion food, i'd raise an eyebrow. this is because i've had bad expereiences in the past from chefs creatively mixing dishes together and gettin a pile of bad tastin crap. but this was not that, s/he was actually did it by takin hints from both worlds rather than slamming two flavours together.
the red wine in the Sangria could be a bit stronger - didn't hv a chance to try other drinks

Curry curry good n casual food.
Submitted Tuesday, December 21, 2004 - 10:54pm [Dine in]

Try their fish curry and the Indian cream cheese dessert. The lamb tikka was not tough yet not tender enough. Our friends and I seldom have Indian food, thus, we ordered everything mild. Though their naan was a bit greasy and they forgot basic things such as bringing us water / lentil crackers / naan with our meals, the food was decent. Order their dinner platters, which let you sample a variety of things, and are a much better deal than regular entrees.

Worth the $5 if I didn't have a barbeque
Submitted Tuesday, December 7, 2004 - 9:36am [Dine in]

Went into the one on Cornwall full of expectations of a juicy, toasted, and hot burger.... came out w/ an average burger that was rather dry on a white bun. advice: they shouldn't be cheap on the condiments! i could have made a juicier, beefier tasting burger on my own barbeque with whole grain buns!

Moonpennies worth every penny
Submitted Monday, November 15, 2004 - 2:47pm [Dine in]

Sandwiches stand out by using using gourmet ingredients not typically found at (boring) cafes. Light and didn't feel greasy at all. I had a Wild Smoked Salmon baguette w/ Dill Pickle Cream Cheese. Yum!

Bad thing - few bread choices. No multigrain baguettes, they only had whole wheat.

Price was good. $4.25 for 1/2 Baguette - even cheaper or competitive with Quizno's!

Wouldn't go back. So greasy it feels better to dine out at McD's...
Submitted Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

Can you spell grease? Other than the "Egg White and Crab surrounded by Brocolli" dish, everything else was deeply soaked in a layer of oil. The asparagus in cream sauce was from a can. The steamed pork dumpling didn't have too much soup or stock inside it and the wrap was too thick. The waiter kept coming to our table to take our finished food away-but he came so many times it was kind of a nuisance.
