horizons for their $20 steak and (rock) lobstah!
5/10.

Service was meh, taste was meh. The only good thing was the view since the weather held up yesterday and we were able to catch the sunset. I haven't been here in years (before it burned down) and don't think I'll be going back anytime soon. I will say though that I'm glad I came during their $20 promo cause I wouldn't have paid anything more for it. On the other hand..it could have been an off night but then again...perhaps this was the reason why I never returned back until yesterday.

Safe to say the new Keg at the Shore Club is not franchised?

Zipang Sushi 4/10

My gf and I was craving sushi but for some reason didn't want to go to our usual joints. So we decided to try Zipang because it was on our way home and we've always heard/read good things about this place.

Not going to comment on the decor and or service because with a 4/10 score on food it really doesn't matter.

Here's what we got

Cali roll (imi crab)
- It was decent but nothing special but I guess it's a cali roll so hwo crazy could it be right?

Paradise Roll (cali with salmon and mango)
- This is a pretty typical roll you can find at a lot of places and this would be average at best. The salmon was pretty thin and the mango was very chinse to the point that it was barely there. The mango didn't even fully cover the top part of the sushi in which it was layed on.

Octopus balls takoyaki
- This was a mess, it was so gross we only managed to partially share 1 and there were 6 total. Due to the fact we were never going to go back and the fact that I'm not one to say anything directly or indirectly I decided to spare their feelings and packed it up instead of leaving basically a full dish there.

Beef sashimi
- Also pretty brutal although I'll give it to them that it was a pretty decent portion. Barely came with any of the sauce and ginger plus the orange stuff they give you. Sure I could have asked for more but the amoutn that it came with barely covered 1/3 of the beef. Even then it was bland as hell and sucked.

Salmon carpaccio
- Pretty decent actually it also came with red snapper sashimi and had a pretty decent lemon/pepperly zing to it

Assorted fries (deep fried prawn tempura, oyster, and a croquette)
- Pretty tastless but it was fried pretty well. Wasn't really oily and it appeared pretty fresh so I'll give them that.

I think that's all we ordered but it was a pretty crappy dinner so maybe I left something out. It was super disappointing because we've long read/heard good things. Now i'm going to make a final comment and you may consider it dumb, or racist, or whatever but it's just my thoughts.

This place (Main and 21st I believe, SoMa a.k.a South Main as they call it) is sort of one of thsoe areas where a lot of white hippidy peep like to hang. The place was full and everyone was white except for us, we're chinese.

What I've noticed and there are of course no real facts around this just opinion. But I always seem to find that when somebody of non asian background eats asian food what they find good is often what asian people would find shitty. Example Hons or another example non related to food is how lots of people think Lucy Liu is hot but if you ask somebody who's chinese they would say are you fucking kidding me.

I think maybe Zipang fell into that category and why i've seen such high reviews. Like I said call me stupid, racist or whatever but simply pointed out something I seem to notice personally.

Will not go back.

The 4/10 rating does not surprise me and it is probably deserved. The place has gone significantly downhill over the past year due to the influx in popularity/ratings and the hipster crowd hoarding it like a dive bar with cheap Pabst Blue Ribbon for $3.

It was better (more like a 7/8 out of 10 or maybe 8.5 on a good day.) But that was a while ago.

That's a shame then I would have gladly welcomed another decent sushi joint to my list but oh wells.

I should also make it clear that I'm in no way saying White people don't have taste in anything. Just saying that when they comment on things that are from another ethnic background whether it be food, women, etc that it's typically different from said ethnic backgrounds opinion. Different strokes for different folks but hey there's nothing wrong with that.

You're better off, to be honest. Give Hime Sushi a shot next time. They're located on W. Broadway and Kingsway, beside the Starbucks and across from Kingsgate Mall. They're not bad but not all that amazing neither. If it helps, they do a pretty good job of giving you an idea of what Zipang used to be.

I find that sushi is just sushi is just sushi in Vancouver for the most part. I've always been slightly impartial to Japanese food in general.

I drive by there all the time and is on my to try list actually. To be honest I'm not really that picky with my sushi but I'm often shocked at how so many places can fuck it up so badly. Oh well it doesn't make me sad because luckily Vancouver overall is an awesome place to find good food.

Sushiholic 8/10.

Good sushi at this restaurant. The downside to this place is the small size. The restaurant was packed at 6pm last night. -was lucky to get the last two seats at the sushi bar.

Despite the high price of sushi, the restaurant owner seems to be doing pretty well.

Awesome roll and Sockeye salmon roll are awesome!

For some reason, they prioritize their take-out orders first so just a tip if you decide to ever go back there. Otherwise, the wait in their dining room can be a little cumbersome.

Suika Snackbar 8.5/10

Went for the $18 Suika-To-Me promo bought from vaneats.ca.

Salmon Carpaccio - Pretty standard; nothing special.
AAA Beef Filet Steak - Cooked medium-rare and topped with soy onion sauce. Not sure if normal but the sauce was cold. The dish also came with potato wedges coated with mild spices.
Tokyo Oxtail Ramen - The ramen was bouncy/al dente (sp?) but the oxtail was a little small.
Pumpkin Creme Brulee - Topped with whipped cream and half a strawberry. Found it kinda bland.

Overall, an enjoyable meal and the promo was a very good deal. I was really impressed with the service and customer relations of the Suika staff. The waitresses were attentive and pleasurable and the greetings by the entire staff when you enter and leave make the restaurant feel like a warm, welcoming place.

HEY MAN.

I FUCKING LOVE HONS.

I've never been disappointed when I go but it may be more for nostalgic reasons more than anything else. Decently priced, big portion of food. It isn't gourmet but it ain't bad either.

Salt Tasting Room 9/10

Very knowledgeable waiter. Paired up wine and cheese/food for us.
2 wine flights and 3 sides for $45

Boneta (just for drinks) 10/10

MUST try cocktail is the "Green Eyed Devil". Refreshing and a tinge of sourness.

Burgoo 8.5/10

Beef Bourguignon was a little on the plain side, but was still pretty decent
Tomato soup was AWESOME. One of the best i've had

Memphis Blues Langley (9/10)

I've been taking 1 course at the Kwantlen campus in Langley and I try to make it out to this place once a week. Probably not a great idea if I want to live past 50 haha. Anyways, the guy who works there (I'm assuming he's the owner) is super cool and they have these amazing specials like this one I had today:
- Smoked Meatloaf Sandwich
- Smoked Meatloaf Poutine



It's huge (I was only able to finish about half), it's super tasty and for all of that plus a pint of beer and it only came out to $16.69!
