Wonderful Baked Porkchop on Rice.
Submitted Saturday, September 19, 2009 - 12:40am [Dine in]

Best Baked Porkchop on Rice that I have eaten in Vancouver. I often find that when I order baked porkchop on ice at other places the pork has a very "funky" taste to it like it is on the verge of being rotten. The baked porkchop on rice at Kam's does not suffer from this. Kam's also has a quite delightful fried beef noodle and Shanghai noodle. As for drinks I always opt for their Hong Kong coffee/tea cold as it is particularly refreshing.The ambiance at Kam's is interesting to say the least. The walls are brightly colored and have an interesting texture and they at least for a while had a pair of small dinosaur skeleton replicas. The service is alright as a "White Girl" it can be difficult to communicate with the waitresses they all seem to have a lot of difficulty with Snglish so having a Canto Chinese boyfriend helps. Don't let the issues with communicating ruin Kam's for you the waitresses can seem abrasive but I think they really do try their best to understand. If all else fails just point to what you want on the menu. Over all Kam's is a good place with good food.

Yan Ming3645 West Broadway, Vancouver
Good for what it is.

Yan Ming is a decent mostly take-out Chinese place near UBC (although apparently they do have a few tables). When I lived on campus it was my favorite Place to call and get dinner delivered. What first might attract you to Yan Ming is that it is cheap. Compared to others like it is is cheaper and free delivery is nice but what will surprise you is the food. The food is not outstanding nor is it strictly authentic Chinese food but it is quite good for a take-out/delivery place. Infact after sampling most of the other take-out/delivery places that would deliver to UBC it has the best food quality and the best taste. This isn't award winning Chinese food but it is award worthy Chinese take-out. After all it is what it is but its the best of what it is. Delivery service is good from Yan Ming. It is always the same delivery man and they are generally accurate with estimated delivery times and sometimes it takes less time. Food always comes hot and fresh. (Poor rating given on ambiance because dinehere.ca lacks the option to put not applicable.)

Amazing Calamari!
Submitted Friday, September 18, 2009 - 11:48pm [Dine in]

My Boyfriend took and I wasn't too impressed by the look of it. The dining room is large and rather empty excepting the tables and chairs and it was devoid of customers. It is a shame that we were the only people there because this place serves great food. My boyfriend who frequents this place loves their burgers and I ordered their Spicy Chicken Wrap. Not your ordinary wrap. Instead of being served wrapped in tortilla it came wrapped in a piece of naan bread. We also ordered their calamari as an appetizer and I was skeptical but as a calamari connoisseur it has to rank in the 3 best calamaris I have ever eaten. The calamari was perfectly cooked not fishy or like a rubberband nor was it greasy. I liked how all three dishes were North American fare with and Indian twist. It is a really great place food wise it really is a shame that it seems to be empty most of the time. Service was good although the one waitress was obviously doing things to busy herself out of boredom the whole time we were there (poor girl). I really like the food here and I hope other people will also see what a hidden gem it is.
