RO Sushi678 West Broadway, Vancouver
oh so ....ordinary

I've gotten take-out from here many times because it's convenient. But nothing special to report here. It's the same as the hundreds of other so-called sushi places in Vancouver. If you're a sushi expert, you should try Ajisai, Kilala, Kibune, or the other authentic ones. If you're not too concerned about quality and want quantity at good price, than the Sushi Special might be for you - $6 for 18 pieces.

Slocan Restaurant2715 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Good spot for a bite when you are in the area

Good spot for burgers, sandwiches and beers. Portions are good. The food is fresh and doesnt come with any pretenses. The hot and cold sandwich options are where I always end up at but the menu is pretty extensive and they do a pretty good brunch menu that goes along great with a caesar.

Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant2991 East Broadway, Vancouver
Good authentic Mexican food!
By Yukon Cornelius of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, September 15, 2014 - 3:59pm [Dine in]

This place is in my neighbourhood and it has never failed to impress. A first visit might make you think that the wait time is a bit long but I have learned time and time again that the reason for the wait? They make FRESH food everytime. For instance... most Mexican restaurants scoop tortilla chips out of a bag. At this place the make them fresh! What a great idea! The tortilla soup is a great dish. chicken stock and fresh tortillas all seasoned perfectly. They use the real Mexican style cheese not shredded mozza out of a bag. The nachos are priced for 1 person but enough for 2 people. Its not a big place and sometimes the TV is playing Mexican soap operas a little too loud... but wow do they ever do wonders in that kitchen. Muy bien!

Old Ginger514 W Broadway, Vancouver
Over priced for mostly greasy noodles.

They don't care! The location is the only thing that keeps this place in operation. If it weren't for the fact that it's near a Sky train station, theere would be another coffee shop there. I wanted veggies.lots of veggies.if I wanted noodles and meat with too much oil, I would have made a point of ordering oily meat and noodles. I made a point of LOTS OF VEGGIES! And for the price of a meal for two, that feed only me, I got ripped off.
They had to bring me some veggies as a side dish to make up for the lack of them in my meal. And what they brought was just oily baby boo choy.
With the ten other places near by that had far more customers inside, I messed up.
Screw the Old Ginger.

NSCS Discovery1515 Discovery Street, Vancouver
Breakfast at the Jericho hostel
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 14, 2014 - 7:53am [Dine in]

We popped into the Discovery Café downstairs at the Jericho Youth Hostel for breakfast while scootering around the area on a sunny Saturday morning. Ordered the corn beef hash for me and the others got Chuckwagon breakfasts. Coffees was rich and we enjoyed a couple cups while we waited about 40 minutes for meals. There were only a couple other tables occupied so I don't know why it took so long but we weren't in any rush.

The corned beef hash was excellent...real corned beef (texture like pulled pork) with roast potatoes, onions and red peppers seared up with two soft poached eggs and hollandaise on top. The Chuckwagons were scrambled eggs, sausage patties, bacon, hash brown potatoes and a dish of baked beans. Each breakfast came with an enormous wedge biscuit with butter and jam. Lots of delicious food. Bill for three people was $42 including a tip. We'd definitely come back for breakfast and now we're wondering what lunch/dinner would be like.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Came in not really expecting much...
By jsmoore of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 7, 2014 - 6:13pm [Dine in]

I have only been here once but I already LOVED this place. The restaurant doesn’t look like anything special from the outside, but when you try the food, you will realize it’s good.

Thankfully, we had a reservation so did not have to wait (Tip #1: get a reservation!). Once we were seated, at first I was undecided on whether I should order samosas or pakoras, as I am a huge fan of both, so the waiter suggested I try the Mixed Platter. It came with samosas and pakoras together, and could serve two people for a price of $10. I also had dal turka (dark lentils) with rice pulao. Lastly, I had yogurt called raita and a crispy cracker called pappadum for $2 each. Was impressed with everything I ate! The food was amazing and SOO GOOD. Seriously, Akbar’s must have some of the best Indian food in town, if not THE best!

All the restaurant workers that we interacted with were very polite and well mannered. Our waiter was very thoughtful, making sure we were comfortable and giving us good suggestions when asked.

Ginger Garlic Cuisine of India1738 Davie Street, Vancouver
Good choice in West End
By KeyWester of West End, Vancouver (31 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 7, 2014 - 5:57pm [Delivery]

Our regular Indian for the past couple of years. Far superior to other choices up the hill on Davie. Have only had delivery which is free and has always been timely, hot and accurate. Mains including butter chicken and prawn karhai are top notch as are pakoras, naan and raita. Highly recommended.

4 Brothers' Pizza1914 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
4 Brothers is always a good choice for pizza
By jsmoore of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, September 5, 2014 - 9:32pm [Dine in]

Commercial Drive is full of pizza places. Seriously. There are several around this area which makes it all the better for the customer as there are tons of options to chose from. Pizza places have to compete with each other and up their game.

That being said, QUALITY prevails in this family-run restaurant. I like 4 Brothers because the ingredients are fresh, the pizza is not greasy and it is cheap. From the menu, I always prefer the super hawaiian pizza. The variety of toppings to chose from are endless, and if you don't like what's being offered in the menu, you can make your own pizza from scratch.

Boston Pizza1333 West Broadway, #190, Vancouver
The wings and only the wings
By eating good food of Vancouver (130 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, September 5, 2014 - 4:05pm [Dine in]

I come here on Monday's sometimes because their double order of wings are $6 off. I really like their boneless wings (Actually all the wings) and I have had a fish burger once and that was good, but don't like anything else on their menu. I don't like their pizza, I don't like their pasta and I certainly don't like their beef burgers.

I usually come with a friend of mine, and I won't order anything but the wings and fries.....He will get a beer and some pasta dish....He likes it.

But the wings that I order are really really good and filling....and I love the sauces that I am able to get with it. would give it a 4, but have eaten other foods here too, so down graded to a 3.

Service is always sensational at Boston Pizza. Probably the only reason why I even returned to a Boston Pizza after eating other stuff on their menu that was crappy. Glad I tried their wings though.....That's good

You gotta come here at least once
By eating good food of Vancouver (130 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, September 4, 2014 - 10:41pm [Dine in]

I've been to this place many times before on and off. Don't know why I don't patron here more often....Maybe I like hamburgers too much, but anyways.

Last week I came here with a friend of mine.....the décor I find is great. It's a little crampy, so wouldn't suggest coming with a large crowd.....but a few friends would definitely be great. It was pretty busy when we came, so after a few moments my friend and I just went up to the front and asked to be seated, which was fine (Hey, it's not White Spot, Milestone's or Earl's) it's an independently owned restaurant.....they don't need to impress us by having some hot hostess waiting at the door to seat us.......not all restaurant owners have excess money to hire staff members that are not required (Just good service and good food is what I am looking for)

Anyhow, we were seated and since we were two we sat at the two seater table by the wall, but later on a lady (owner?) asked us if we would like one of the bigger centre tables regardless if it was just us. We gladly accepted (Good Service there)

Shortly after we ordered. I ordered chicken fettucini with alfredo sauce, and my friend ordered a large souvlaki dinner. We shared a saganaki. The saganaki was ok. I guess in order for it to be good, you have to pretty much eat it right after it comes off the stove. I guess by the time it gets to your table it hardens, but I notice that at all Greek restaurants when I get Saganaki (not the restaurants fault....guess just the way it is) So I guess I won't be eating Saganaki ever again at a restaurant.

Anyhow, main dishes.....OH MY GOODNESS. Flavourful Fettucini. oh and it came with a choice of a salad (I chose ceasar) both were fantastic and for only $14 and BIG portion. My friends souvlaki was BIG....yes, it was a large but wasn't expecting that size. I think it came with 2 souvlakia if I remember correctly.....I finished my food, but my friend had to take theirs to go......My friend actually complained that they even put TOO much rice (but hey, better than not enough I say)

This is certainly a place that I will be coming back to more often.....cheap prices and good food. I mean really. You HAVE to try this place and DON'T tell me that you don't like it.

La Belle Patate1215 Davie Street, Vancouver
Poutine disappointment :(
By jsmoore of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, September 3, 2014 - 10:18am [Dine in]

I remember this place being amazing for its POUTINE. It used to be poutine heaven for me because of the variety of poutines you could chose from. I never considered La Belle Patate to be cheap but for the sizes of poutine and the quality served I tended to overlook it. But now that I have come back a couple of times after trying other places, I feel that the food has either gone downhill or something...Whatever it is, I feel that it is not up to par with the other poutine-places in the city. The cheese curds were okay but the fries were burnt, and the gravy was a little cold and lackluster (the gravy is vegetarian, which takes away half of the taste already).

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
I ordered too spicy
By dianalee of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - 2:13pm [Dine in]

I have ordered take-out from Akbar's a couple of times in the past and liked their food but never really had the opportunity to eat in. Vancouver has so many places to eat that it's hard to try them all at out.

So this time around, I ate at Akbars. To be honest, the restaurant didn't look anything special from the outside. JUST OKAY. Once inside it was better, not to mention the fact that i like spicy food. We arrived at around 7 pm and the place was kind of full but thankfully we had a reservation. Thinking i was a champ, i ordered butter chicken with palak panner at the most spicy level and suffered. I should've known! Grasping for water, I asked the waiter if i could be changed to something less spicy. Thankfully they did. Once my plate was changed, I was able to enjoy my meal :)
