Go Fish1504 West 1st Ave., Vancouver
Go Fish & Chips Somewhere Else
Submitted Sunday, July 6, 2008 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

We had the Thai Sesame Soup and that was the best part! Fish was overly battered, although the fish itself was really good. Chips get a grade EH rating.

The atmosphere is sooo cute! It's a little tangent away from the main island, but it's nicely tucked away from the pack at the market. Go there during off-peak hours because the lineup to this outdoor patio can stretch a nautical mile.

Overall, go there for anything but the fish and chips. (Oyster Po' Boys, Albacore Tuna sandwiches, Scallop Burger, Ceviche, Fish Tacones...)

Milestone's Grill & Bar1210 Denman Street, Vancouver
Ocean View: Beautiful Backdrop for Great Conversations
Submitted Wednesday, July 2, 2008 - 8:50pm [Dine in]

They updated their interiors and menu design. It looks and feels a lot more comfortable. All my past qualms about Milestone's being old fogey is vanquished! That says a lot since it's at the bottom of my chain restaurant preference.

We went during Alcan Dragon Boat Festival weekend, and enjoyed a nice view of English Bay. Our server was nice, in that overly-friendly server type of way. I ordered half a California greens salad with strawberries, caramelized pecans, and added a spicy corn bread muffin. Very nice and light... and cheap! With tip, my bill came to $11!

PS Another time I went, my friend and I ordered the garlic spread - tres delicieux!

Kirin Mandarin Restaurant1172 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Try the Savory Soy Milk!
Submitted Wednesday, July 2, 2008 - 8:39pm [Dine in]

Our family went for Dim Sum on Canada Day and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant. Right off the bat, this downtown restaurant had FREE PARKING! That and I am a food fanatic when it comes to northern Chinese food!

Our waitress wasn't too bright, and mixed up one order and left out another item. But all our dishes ended up really good! We had pan fried buns, Chinese donut wrapped in sticky rice, savory soy milk, potstickers, gluten in soup with lettuce. The standout item was the savory soy milk - it had Chinese donut soaked in it. It was like eating a northern style Chinese cereal/porridge.

The mango pudding is give or take. My aunt can make better, although this one comes in the shape of a heart! Aaaaaand the condensed milk is served in the cutest mini gravy ship.

When we expressed our dissatisfaction with the way-too-heavy, way-too-oily Chinese donut, the manager graciously took it off our order. For four people, our bill came to only $35!

I recommend this restaurant to anyone who patronizes the cheaper $2 dim sum restaurants, wants decent dim sum, and doesn't have the time (or gas money) to head to Richmond!

Guu Otokomae375 Water Street, #105, Vancouver
Petite Dishes, Massive Flavour
Submitted Wednesday, July 2, 2008 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

Everything about this GUU was perfect (except for the service)! I would definitely go there again but won't necessarily try the other GUUs.

MENU
We were offered a table near the stairwell where servers bring up the dishes and got a visual preview of the entire menu. Even when we finished dinner, we still salivated to try items we had initially negated!

Drinks there are affordable and have an interesting Asian/Japanese twist. The Green Tea Mojito is perfect for anyone who doesn't want drinks too sweet. The Diva drink came across as more of a smoothie.

Although the Yaki Udon didn't jump out from the menu, when it was delivered to the table next to us, we just HAD to order it! The sauce was a mixture of soy and fish sauce, but it's like Reese's Pieces: you can't just slab peanut butter on chocolate to get a great taste.

The daily Cold Tofu isn't worth trying though. It was tasteless and not firm enough to be an appetizer dish.

Everything on the dessert menu sounded so good!!!!!

SERVICE
Everyone at Guu was so friendly, shouting welcome upon entry, singing cheery happy birthdays (albeit forgetting the birthday girl's name...). Cool enough, but our waitress couldn't wait to get the service over with. She was only interested in ordering more food for us and was reluctant to tell us names of dishes or ingredients.

AMBIENCE
The interiors are cool and relaxing. Mini dishes at the bar serve as a hip coffee house alternative. Someone was even working on their macbook.
Washrooms offer Scope for the breath mint challenged.
