Great Food and Good Service
Submitted Monday, July 30, 2007 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

My husband and I stopped at Earl's for lunch last week, and the food was outstanding. We both had a Spicy Wok dish. He had the Hunan Kung Pao and I had the Jeera Chicken Curry. I must say it was some of the best curry I've ever eaten - which I was surprised about because I wouldn't have thought this restaurant would have done so well with it. The jasmine rice was very good alone, but adding the curry sauce to it made it excellent. It had just enough kick for me, too. Not enough that I couldn't eat it - but just enough that I was drinking a glass of water, too! The naan bread also was a very nice touch to the meal. Perfect for dipping into the curry.

I didn't try my husband's dish, but he loved it. He can handle the hot stuff, but even he had to drink a lot of water - but that's how he likes it.

The service was very good, too. They were always refilling our sodas and water.

They have parking here, but it's not very big - but there is street parking. The atmosphere inside was very classic, and the patio where we sat was very nice for lunch.

Overall - great service and even better food. I would highly recommend the place.

Lolita's South of the Border Cantina1326 Davie Street, Vancouver
Good Food

We received a recomendation to try this place from a local bartender and we're glad we did. We did have a 20 minute wait - it's a small place and the tables are very crammed together. But it was worth the wait.

We started with the guacamole/black bean dip to start. I am not a fan of black bean dip and didn't realize it would be at the bottom of the cup of guacamole. I just thought it would be another dipping sauce. However, what little guacamole there was - was pretty good. I just wish there was more of it!

I ordered the tacos - one was chorizo and the other was shrimp, and they were both good. One the soft shell taco, the meat was mixed with other veggies that complemented the mean really well. The dish also came with rice that was good.

My husband had a steak salad that he said was quite tasty.

Overall - it was a good experience and I would definitely go back.

Hon's Wun Tun House1339 Robson Street, Vancouver
One of top five worst meals ever!
Submitted Monday, July 30, 2007 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

My husband and I ate at Hon's on Robson Street last week while on vacation and it was easily one of the top five worst restaurants we've ever been to. The service and decor were decent, but the food was absolutely awful.

We started with the basic potstickers and to be honest, they weren't bad. By the end of the meal, we were wishing we had ordered more of them. Not that they were so great, but because everything else was bad.

I ordered the Fried Egg Noodles with Black Pepper and Beef Juliennes - which I thought the Fried Egg Noodles was a house special. God help them if it was! My dish came out first and my husband and I started eating it. The peppers and onions in the dish were fine, but the noodles were not that good and the black pepper sauce left something to be desired.

My husband's dish of Chicken with Vegetables and Broccoli Spears then came out. He tried it first and almost spit it out - it was that bad. I took a bite of the chicken and he and I both feared it wasn't cooked enough. It was very slimy and just didn't taste very done. We quickly stopped eating that dish.

We tried to eat more of my dish, but the noodles and the black pepper sauce just weren't good.

I was just shocked by how bad the food was. I had read reviews and unlike what many of them said, I just did not enjoy the food. And what surprised my husband and I was how crowded it was. And, it wasn't just tourists like us - but people who are from Vancouver and actually continue to come back to the restaurant. That's the shocking part.

Needless to say, we wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. Fortunately for us - there was a DQ right nearby and we stopped off for a blizzard. We needed something to wash the food down with!
