G/f pointed out the perfect boobs on waitress. I agreed 100%.
They had a wild mushroom soup last year that was soooo good; perfect for cold winter days

Abigails is my favourite friday night post work meal. I work til midnight, and after making food for people for 50+ hours, I love heading there to end my work week with a beer and usually a poutine with bacon and a poached egg.

Avoid this dump like the plague. Better food can be had in a hipster's trash can. If you go there after reading this post, you are a complete moron and deserve to die in a fire.

This thai place (forgot the name) across from cafe calabria on commercial.
8/10. The padthai was amazing, however the other side dishes were 75% veg 25% meat which was kinda disappointing since they tasted decent.

Chubby Lamb Hotpot - 6/10
Out of all the hotpot places in richmond, I find this to be the worst. It cost us $27 for late night, (im guessing there's no late night special). It could've been better but I find the quality is lacking. The oysters have this strong aftertaste, (not live).

Their service is great, however..

chronic tacos on w broadway

9.5/10

one of the biggest burritos i've ever had at chronic. only thing cutting it short of a 10 is the lack of hot sauce variety unlike their other locations.

got taken to one of the best sushi experiences/meals i've ever had in my life for christmas.

I went to hanako in surrey.









The tamago was some of the best I've ever had. The bluefin otoro was fucking amazing too.

words can not even describe how unbelievable the meal was. The sushi chef was unbelievably nice, personal and very social. The staff shadowed us. They had a 12 year old sushi chef apprentice. I'm super hyper and have massive ADHD, but I left relaxed, calm and really horny.

11/10

2/10. Boiling Point hot pot in Richmond.

Where is the GODDAMN HEAT?!?! The place was freezing, everyone inside was wearing a jacket and we asked them about the heat and they just shrugged. Coldest restaurant I've ever been in.

Yeah, the dinner pricing is terrible. I used to go there for lunch (~$10) with my wife and be able to share 1 order with an appetizer, but everything on the menu has shrunk.

i think the waiters and waitresses all wear caps inside last time i passed by with all the steam from the hotpot, their head must be sweating not stop LOL

the hotpot with so much food inside does not seem very appetizing to me

such a hipster place

The Habit Burger Grill (West Covina, CA)

Some say this is In & Out Burger's competitor while others see it as a whole different restaurant. Regardless, I would say this is a nicer version of Burger King where their burgers are charbroiled so they get a 4/10. Their onion rings were blah and the burger was just "okay" at best. They use shredded lettuce whereas In & Out uses a softer, spongy bun and leaf lettuce.

dear god, and i thought $8 ootoro nigiri at sushi hachi was expensive. also interesting one on that list...never seen kajiki served locally. though personally, i dont know if i'd spend so much locally for strictly nigiri.

Sushi California.


HOW THE FUCK DO YOU RETARDS EAT AT THIS PLACE? I CAN'T BELIEVE SOME OF YOU ACTUALLY RECOMMENDED IT. THIS PLACE IS CERTIFIABLY WORSE THAN SUSHI GARDEN, and yet it is jam packed with ignorant assholes.
