Waffle House636 Sixth Street, New Westminster
AVOID - Waitress doesn't wash her hands... EW.
Submitted Monday, June 20, 2011 - 11:47pm [Dine in]

Since starting work in burnaby/new west a year ago I would periodically stop in at the Wafflehouse for breaky before work. Everything was fine, decent service and food...

Until one day I was in the bathroom and watched as the waitress left without washing her hands. If she doesn't even wash her hands after doing her business who knows how else she handles food? Disgusting.

Emailed the manager, no reply. Doesn't seem to care to be losing someone who was becoming a repeat customer.

Nando's Chicken20159 88th Avenue, Langley
Yummy and quick!

The owner (I think?) always remembers my order... He's super nice and makes a point of knowing his customers. The food is quick and for the most part pretty healthy.

Their Mediterranean Salad is pretty good, though I haven't had it in a while since I usually go for the chicken pita these days (hot! with peri fries). It's mostly chicken (if not all?) on the menu but you can have your choice in how its prepared. The food is always fresh, tasty and fast... what more can you ask for? A little pricey I guess but it's a hybrid of fast food and sit down, so really who can complain.

Looooove this place. Yum!

Nice owners :)

One of the few non-Japanese-run sushi places I frequent.

I had to "lol" at the comment below about the big hat. It's true.
These two are really nice people. The wife is always so sweet and the chef is always smiling.

Fish is fresh, good portions and good presentation. Always tasty!
Only complaint is sometimes the tempura doesn't feel fried in fresh oil...
But other than that, I eat at this place at least once every 2 months or so.

Urban Sushi562 Granville Street, Vancouver
Great value, tasty for what I've tried

Recently tried this place before the Canucks game last month... Ended up going there 2 or 3 times this playoff run.

Great for a quick bite that's good value (especially for downtown!).

Don't really have many complaints, tuna always tasted good and I enjoyed their "urban" roll.
Also had agedashi tofu one night, portion size was great and the taste was alright.

I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to Japanese food so...
Will definitely go back.

Mashed potato rice = one word: AVOID!
Submitted Monday, June 20, 2011 - 11:09pm [Dine in]

Firstly, and perhaps not that important but, for anyone picky on the topic it is not run by Japanese (which is actually fairly common in the lower mainland).

Moving on... My boyfriend brought me here last week after mentioning he'd gone here numerous times and enjoyed it. He'd brought other friends here but the real test was me as I am a tad hard to please when it comes to Japanese food. Needless to say, actually felt bad for him, because I could tell he was embarrassed at how badly this place failed any expectations:

We ordered a gyoza to start. Not only could I tell the preparation was wrong but one bite in and we both knew it was undercooked - the skin was still powdery and dry on the inside, and the sauce was bland as well.

Then our sushi arrived. My boyfriend ordered a salmon roll and salmon nigiri and I could tell by looking at the colour of the fish the quality was sub-par. Even if it was atlantic farmed (which I'm assuming it was) the colour still looked really pale and off.

As for me, the proportion of fish to rice on my nigiri was bizarre - I have had over sized slabs of fish before, but the miniscule balls of rice which accompanied the fish just felt odd. I have never experienced that before, and I didn't like it.

What else I didn't like was the dynamite roll I had ordered. The presentation was pathetic (I actually took a photo!), crab spilling everywhere, sea-weed not rolled properly, un-proportionate slices all jammed up on one side of the plate.

Above all, the rice had the mashed potato effect... Literally there were some areas on my roll so smashed in together you could see blobs and finger indents. GROSS.

SUFFICE TO SAY... I will NOT be returning.
