Yeah the Jus was heaven, and the chimichurri paired nice with the steak.

I didnt like the bearnaise or peppercorn.
Couldnt taste much flavor. I rarely eat steak with sauce because a good piece of meat shouldnt need overpowering sauces.

I am gonna recommend our next company dinner for this place!

There's also the related restaurant to El Caracol on that same strip (at the far left, facing the restaurant). They had a great mole.

Dona Cata is a Mexican restaurant; I figured they could make a decent mole.

Went to The American Cheesesteak place earlier. I had the Cowboy, gf had the New Yorker, and we shared the ACC fries. I'd rate my food a 6/10. I felt mine was a bit too fancy for my liking. I would have preferred just a simple philly cheesesteak with. My bread was really good while my gf's was quite soft. I thought her bread might have been soft because of all the sauce, who knows. The fries were bland. They tasted like any old regular fries I could get from anywhere, not impressed with them. For $33 ish, I wasn't impressed. I will try the place again, just to see what the other cheesesteaks are like.

I always pack at least a meal and a half whenever I head up to SFU. Healthier, tastier and cheaper.

My Greek Restaurant in Maillardville. Had the roast lamb entrée and the calamari appetizer.
Lamb was good and tender, calamari had nice light batter. Prices average. Would return again. 7.5/10

Had lunch at Miko Sushi today. Food's good and executed well. Though it lacked in quantity, the value is there considering it's sushi and in downtown. Sushi box was $11 (plus tax and tips) and it got me 4 pieces of sushi, tempura, 2x yakitori and 6 pieces of sushi. Probably not enough food for most people on this forum though.

BTW anyone tried Don Guacamole? There's finally a groupon out for something close to where I work. Let me know if it's worth a visit.

The Red Wagon
7/10

Crispy Pork Belly Sandwich - like a banh mi with chinese bbq pork. Pickled vegetables overpowered the pork. Way too greasy. In-house fried "chips" too oily and lacked crunch.

Butternut squash soup (soup de jour) - Quite good. Smooth, creamy probably the best dish overall.

Pulled pork sandwich (gf's) - on a portuguese bun. Pulled pork a touch dry. Slaw too tangy, again overpowering whole sandwich. Fries were good.

Apple pie - good crust and mildly spiced apples, might be bland for some but definitely tastes homemade.

Slow service but friendly. Messed up a drink order, my fries substitute which I didn't get but they still charged. Pricey for those who don't care for organic, local products. Overrated based on the hype.

It's probably mediocre i.e. non-authentic, just like Tokyo Joe's sushi across the street. There are reviews on Urbanspoon.
