Burgers Etc. BBQ House4091 Hastings St., Burnaby
Very good burgers, but not great
Submitted Saturday, September 2, 2006 - 3:21pm [Dine in]

Based on the good food ratings (4s and 5s), we tried the burgers here one night before watching the crows fly into Burnaby for the night.

The place is your basic "mom & pop" shop, nothing fancy but clean. The only a/c was a small portable unit, so it was a bit hot on the night we were there.

We both had the hamburger with cheese. The burgers had very good flavour, but they were just a tad dry. Perhaps because most/all burger joints are thoroughly cooking burgers these days to avoid any health issues. We've had the same thing at Vera's.

While the burgers were very good, we didn't feel that they were any better than Vera's, and neither is as good as the cheese burgers we've had at Stella's on Commercial. Go figure.

The french fries were most excellent, as was their cole slaw.

We'll definitely go back to try their BBQ, even though we live just two blocks from Memphis Blues on Broadway. :-)

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

Crave3941 Main St., Vancouver
New name-Crave
Submitted Sunday, June 11, 2006 - 2:50pm [Dine in]

Clews has recently been reaquired by the original owner and has now been renamed Crave. We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The buttery potatoes were incredible and the highlight of the breakfast. The crab cakes on the crab cake benedict were high on crab and low on bread crumbs, and nicely browned. The poached eggs were perfect, not the hockey puck you get in so many restarants. The pancakes were light and fluffy. The staff was very attentive, and they have a nice patio, too. We will be back soon for dinner!

El Pulgarcito2522 E. Hastings Street, Vancouver
Very good Mexican/Salvadorian food
Submitted Tuesday, May 30, 2006 - 10:31am [Dine in]

I've had difficulty finding good, authentic Mexican/South American food in Van City. After spotting this place on a recent drive-by, and then finding a favourable post on the eGullet Society website (http://forums.egullet.org/), I gave them a try.

The atmosphere is austere but very clean, the service is very friendly, the kitchen is quick, and most importantly the food was delicious! I had their Taquitos Carnita Asada with a side order of beans. Both were very satisfactory and I will definitely make a return visit to further explore their menu and to try their pupusas.
