Pho Tau Bay in Guildford.
10/10
Best pho I've ever had.
I got a large Pho Tai Bo Vien - $8 and an Avocoado Shake - $4
Tons of beef and beef balls in the pho. Broth was perfect and left no MSG aftertaste. Shake was pretty good too. Not too sweet. Definitely should give it a try if you guys are in the area.

Forage on Robson. 8.5/10

Locally sourced food, not too fancy a room and attentive service. It's a new place so there's a lot of "how do like it?" questions. Everything was good and the chowder is as good as other reviews have said.

I'd recommend it for Dineout.

Splitz Grill on Main Street - 10/10

Had their $3.99 lentil burger lunch special.

You can get either a lentil burger or Splitz burger for $3.99 from 11am to 4pm on weekdays. Anything else like bacon, cheese, extra toppings are extra. For that price, it's hard to complain!

LOVE SPLITZ. I used to go there all the time when I lived in whistler, missed it so much when I moved back to edmonton, and found out in the time I was back there they had opened one in Van when I moved here. I usually end up spending 12 bucks and leave stuffed and satisfied.

Not sure if you notice but I find the overall quality of food at the Splitz in Whistler is MUCH better than the one in Vancouver. Perhaps different supplier?

Shopping around for stupid shit in Richmond with Paradise240 and entrax, decided to get lunch at Aberdeen's food court. I haven't been there for a few months, and had no clue that a Vera's opened up. Seemed obligatory for us to get food from there.

I've had Vera's once a long time ago, I don't even remember how old I was. Got the single cheeseburger with a poutine since I was feeling like a fat slob. Man, it was good. Thick patty, good toppings. Usually I don't like tomato in my burger, but they put on a thick slab of it, and was really good. Poutine had too much gravy though; fries were literally swimming in it. It was huge too, ermahgerd. Paradise240 somehow managed to finish a double burger with fries, and entrax had the BBQ special, with BBQ sauce, onions and cheese, also with fries. I seriously, could not move for a bit after, was so full.

Solid food, I'd say 8/10. Next time I go, I'll try not to be sick so I can actually taste it more haha.

Bad pic. Yes, the Hellaflush sticker was part of the stupid shit I was shopping for.

Spoiler!

I remember the fries being better before, but I haven't had splits in whistler since 2007 or so since I lived there. I couldn't imagine them being too much different. I find at splits on main though if trevor doesn't cook your burger (the owner) it is a little less awesome. Out of the last 20 I have had there though he has probably cooked 17. In theory it should be the opposite though about the suppliers.. In whistler we had to deal with absolute NIGHTMARES with suppliers where I worked. Bringing us bad products, late, and shorting us constantly.

Interesting.

I've never had Trevor cook, only ever his employees. I wasn't aware of the blunders in Whistler but I find their burgers are just that much more tastier.

One thing about hate about the Main Street location - I hate shredded lettuce.

I get my burgers without lettuce anyways, but I agree shredded is atrocious. I will have to have one up at splitz next time I'm in whistler and compare. The people that own the main street one were the originators, and they actually sold the one up in whistler, so it could very well be totally different recipes and stuff up there.

if I didnt just start dieting id go try splitz right now. Maybe this weekend for a cheat meal.

You know who has a good burger? The flying beaver. Love their blue cheese burger.

Granted it probably isn't the best and I was just super hungry.

Flying Beaver has pretty good food, not even just for a bar but just in general.

Their Chicken & Brie sandwich is better than what I've had at Burgoo and Earls, Seafood Salad sandwich is recommended too, and their Chicken Calzone.

"Sushi By Yuji"

-Unfortunately I didn't take pictures, but maybe next time.

- I had toro nigi, BC Roll, Fresh Wild Sal/Avo roll, and Miso. And for what it's worth, I really enjoyed it. For those that want quality, and are willing to pay extra, this is a nice place nearby.

- Try it out and let me know. FYI, they opened this week, so have some trinkets to roll out and fix, so just have that perspective.

Total bill was 12.32

No Rating this time, I just enjoyed my meal.
I took the opportunity to try Sushi by Yuji tonight with my lady friend. I didn't know what to expect other than what you posted and several photos on their Facebook page.

My lady friend and I arrived at around 6:15pm and sadly, there was nobody inside. We were greeted and seated by Yuji and his waitress promptly. We combed through the menu and decided to simply try the omakase.

The quality of seafood and rice used can simply be described as amazing. Yuji serves up some serious sushi. If you like Shima-ya on Victoria & E. 41st or Sushi Hachi in Richmond, this place is just as good, if not, better!

Without being overly cliche, his restaurant can simply be described as a rose in a field of weeds; a hidden gem. If any of you get a chance, give this place a try. I can assure you the quality of food and Yuji's craftsmanship will amaze you. I would most definitely return as there are no comparable restaurants nearby, other than Shima-ya. Street level parking is available after 6pm. They accept cash and credit/debit now.

Warning: Your mouth will water. (Click on the pictures for a larger pic.)
Omakase for 2 followed by matcha green tea and mango ice cream for dessert - $65 plus taxes and tip. We left satisfied and with a big smile on our faces!

Course #1 - We normally dislike mackerel because of its fishy taste but not what Yuji served!
(Edit: The salmon pictured below is NOT farmed. It is wild sockeye.)


Course #2


Course #3 - The grilled piece of fish sushi in the back you see (Edit: thanks Jer3 - it is anago) we were reluctant to try it because we normally don't like the fishy taste associated with grilled fish but again, none of that. Yuji did an awesome job.


I normally do not give a full 10/10 rating but Sushi By Yuji gets a solid bcrdukes 10/10. Amazing service, amazing food, and amazing skill/craftsmanship. Would totally go back!

Although it looks like farmed salmon in the picture (sorry, camera phone) it isn't. Straight up wild sockeye salmon.

Fantastic review Dukes! Shieeet, I don't see you give 10/10 often lol. Glad to see we have similar tastes.

Been back to Yuji's as well, I definitely want this place to stick around. I had some sushi the other day, not from Yuji, and it just blew me away at how much of a difference there was. Pretty much, it's only sushi by yuji for me now.

hahaha yeah I don't give 10s out very often but this place deserved it!

I'd definitely go there more regularly as the area lacks a "good" sushi restaurant. I didn't mind Shima-ya on Victoria but the parking there is terrible, especially within that plaza. Yuck.
