Ap Gu Jung Restaurant1642 Robson St., Vancouver
Best Korean place for non-Koreans.
Submitted Thursday, November 22, 2007 - 3:55am [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I have been to every Korean restaurant on Robson, and have received less than stellar treatment due to the fact that we are caucasian. The majority of places do not bring us the free appetizers, ignore us once we have ordered our food, and take forever to bring us the bill. Since we have started going to Ap Gu Jung, that is no longer a problem.

The wait staff is friendly, attentive, and informative, although one or two of them are slightly lacking in their English. The food is good, if a little greasy, and the lack of MSG is a major plus. Portion sizes are large (the Jab Che meal always lasts me 2 servings) and they seem to have a better selection of non-spicy food than most places we've been to. Oh yeah, and they always bring the free appetizers. If you like Korean food but would like it served without the overt racism, check out Ap Gu Jung.

Hamburger Mary's Diner1202 Davie Street, Vancouver
Great place for a late night burger.
Submitted Thursday, November 22, 2007 - 3:47am [Dine in]

Upon the recommendation of a coworker, my girlfriend and I decided to check this place out. We were greeted by a smiling waitress who attended to us immediately. My girlfriend ordered the Vancouver Burger with fries, and I got the Works Burger with a side of Coney fries. After a wait just over 10 minutes we received our food and went to work.

Everything on my plate was delicious, and served in generous portions. The burger was done just right, the bacon was crispy, and the lettuce was fresh. Unlike a number of other burger chains I have tried, the condiments did not overflow and overpower the taste of the burger itself, which was a nice change. The coney fries were essentially a heart attack on a plate, and would be on my "last meal" request for sure. A guilty pleasure, but worth it. I didn't have any room left to try a shake (truthfully, I only managed to finish my meal since it was my first today), but it is my understanding that they are amazing.

My girlfriend found the Vancouver burger to be above average, but was not a fan of the guacamole they used. Her fries were average, on par or better than most burger chains but nothing in comparison to Fritz or any other place that specializes in fries. About what you would expect, really.

The service throughout the meal was attentive and friendly. Our water glasses never dipped below half full, and moments after our food had settled and we were ready to go, they came over to check on us and see if we wanted the bill. We will definitely be going back.
