One of my buddy's family owns the Glowbal Group. I can vouch for the restaurants, they're all pretty damn yummy. Especially with hookups.

Fave. is Coast in downtown.

Tenant appreciation at my work today, landlord had a BBQ.

Surprised when I walked downstairs to the parking lot that he hired one of the Roaming Dragon food trucks to cater the BBQ. Nice touch.

House made burgers topped with shredded cheese and lots of fresh veggies on a nice bakery fresh bun. Burger patties were huge, almost the size of a hockey puck! Served with hand cut fries which were extra crispy outside and nice and soft on the inside. Excellent.

9/10

I've been there many times. Always did takeout cause the place is small and packed. I like their food.

Details and why did you do 5/5 but the following 9/10 instead of 4.5/5?

I've never liked the place and I've tried it twice.

Shanghai River

Shredded Jellyfish, Xiaolongbao, Shanghai Chicken, Wonton Soup and a few rice and noodle dishes I can't remember the names to. Service was quick and attentive for a busy Friday night.

Agreed. For $14 that is a fuckin' good burger at Chop, taking into account the place and the price point.

Nor Boo 'cause Gyoza King too busy.

Food was okay, service suuuuuucked. Had the AYCE one dish (beef hot pot). Servings got progressively smaller, and the 3rd time I had to ask 3 times for another round of meat/veggies.
7/10

Tokachi Restaurant in Surrey with the family today. Had the textbook California Roll, tempura roll, dynamite roll, vegetable roll, and teriyaki chicken roll. It was some of the best sushi I've ever had (the Korean-owned places can't hold a candle to this place), but the sushi kinda fell apart easily. Service was attentive to topping up our glasses of water, even there were only a few people there when we ate.

9/10

Food - 6-7/10, wasn't that great. I'd prefer Memphis Blues. Had the beef ribs and the wife had the back ribs.
Service - 5/10, slow and the resturant was only 1/3 full.

I like to do fast food type joints out of 5 and restaurants out of 10 ... just cause

I had a slice of the diced pepperoni and it was really good. Or maybe I was just really hungry.

Talay Thai on Granville (Marpole)
completely random find with my gf, was just walking up and down the street thinking of which joint we should visit (we dine in the area quite often) and we walked across the place. Gf checked it up on Urban Spoon and we decided to go in.
Turns out it's owned and operated by a Thai family--real friendly people who came from a small town outside Bangkok and making authentic Thai food.

9/10 will visit again.
