Japanese Village, The734 Broughton Street, Victoria
Great Experience!
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2009 - 2:06pm [Dine in]

I've been coming to Japanese Village for several years now, and it is by far one of my favorite places to eat.

Food is served teppan-style - so, a group of people sit around a table with a large grille, and the chef cooks everything right in front of you. I swear by the salad (very good dressing), the teriyaki steak (with the steak sauce, aka sesame sauce), and the rice (with the steak sauce as well...2 scoops of it!)

No, the miso soup isn't like what you'll find in other Japense places (I agree it's somewhat like chicken noodle soup), but the food is great, the chefs are fun, and it's definitely a different type of dining experience.

Subeez Cafe891 Homer Street, Vancouver
Still Just As Good (Almost)
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2009 - 2:01pm [Dine in]

My boyfriend & I came with another couple to Subeez this past weekend (November, 2009) and were overall very pleased with the service, the food, and the atmosphere.

Upon getting a table, we all ordered drinks. The sangria was great (and good value - a huge pitcher for $15), the martinis were so so, and the different beers to choose from were great.

I've been to Subeez a few times in the past, in which the first visit was probably 4 years ago. The only thing I've found that's changed is some of the decoration - instead of having nice black comfy leather seats to sit in, as well as the regular tables and chairs, all the seating has changed to cheap looking diner style tables and booths. Not a big deal, but I do think it kind of takes away from the rest of the "look" of the place.

Our server was very attentive. I ordered the butternut squash tortellini and it was not nearly as good as it used to be. I'm not one to send food back, but I sent this dish back - there was hardly any sauce and the pasta was very dry. My order was replaced with the ribs and they were amazing - even my boyfriend, who hates pork, was digging in. The other people in our party ordered the steak and it, too, was delicious.

Overall, Subeez is just as good, in my opinion, as it was when I first visited, and I'll definitely be going back the next time I'm in Vancouver.
