Went to Ask for Luigi yesterday for brunch.

It's a very small joint. But the food is very good and totally worth the wait. We ordered Chicken Parmigiana and ricotta stuffed eggplant. They were both excellent.

The service was top notch too. We ordered something and they realized they didn't have it anymore afterwards, they offered a complimentary dessert on the house. And the panna cotta (the desert we got) was incredible; just the right balance between creaminess and sweet, and the dates were a perfect match.

I will be back to try out their pasta for sure.

If there's one thing I didn't like, it's the portion control. The lady next to me also ordered the chicken parmigiana, and it was almost twice in both size and thickness. The fried egg barely covered half her chicken while you'd basically only see the egg and the surrounding sauce on my plate. But other than that, everything was great and I'd pay another visit for the pasta.

8.5/10

cactus club coal harbour

went there twice last week

order the tuna stack!!! best appie on the menu, they removed my previous dish of tuna tataki but the new dish makes up for it.


butternut squash soup was worth the $7 as well!

beef shortrib wasn't worth it, bit meh , the rob feenie chicken burger is the exact same design as a the chicken crunch with english bay cactus concession (except it is missing the lemon zest) soooo freaken goood




bit bias rating since I use to work at CC when I was a young teen lol


8/10

oh, it maybe a location dependant, iknow coal harbour removed the tutaki off their menu , some places dont have the tuna stack as well.

edit: yes, it is location dependant. Richmond has both on their menu, Coal Harbour has the tuna stack only.

Purple Café in Bellevue. Went to the Seattle one before as well and both locations was good. Huge Selection of wine. The also offer wine flights. Good notables is their chop salad and Lamb dish. But the most highly recommended is their salted caramels. OMG! Definite 10/10 for that and I don't have a sweet tooth at all and I love it! Solid 8.5/10 overall for food drinks and ambience.

Been meaning to head out there, heard many good things about their beer. But driving out to Delta and drinking many beers is a daunting task

I know this is the wrong thread to ask but you folks are more knowledgeable. Does anyone know where I can buy large quantities of the Chinese dessert red bean porridge/soup? Large quantities as in about five litres worth?

Unfortunately they don't have their full lounge license so they are only able to serve you one beer or one flight. So problem solved. Bring a growler and drink 2 more liters when you get back home !

^I have no fucking clue why people rave about that place. I gave that place 3 chances hoping I would see what others see in it and left unhappy everytime because of the hype, people calling it 10/10 and god's greatest gift to Vancouver's sushi scene.

As a big In-N-Out Burger fan, it was interesting to compare the two. I was also on a recent California trip where I had In-N-Out 4 out of the 9 days I was there lol. So the taste of In-N-Out was still fresh in my mind.

Cali Burger aka "In-N-Out knockoff" is exactly that. It looks similar, it tastes similar and it even smells similar. As an overall verdict, I still prefer In-N-Out over Cali Burger. But if I'm not up for a 10hr drive (one way) to Medford, Oregon, Cali Burger here locally will do just fine. It's kind of like being able to pay for a set of Volk wheels, or settling for a set of Enkei wheels instead lol.

If you do a quick search on Google, there's an interesting article comparing the two companies. Some saying they like Cali better simply because their patties are slightly larger. Or how they offer the option of having alcohol in your milkshake. For me, neither of those two differences mattered.

Of course because it was opening day, there might have been some contributing factors that might have tainted the experience. That being said, I'm willing to go again once the hype dies down a bit.

It's probably one of the better ones in East Van, but definitely many places at that level for the price you're paying.

iirc, it's a $35 omakase?

I found the quality great, but the portions a tad small.
Would pay a bit more for a few extra pieces at that quality level.

Where else would you guys suggest for omakase?

It's actually not as busy if you go during the week days. My friend went and said the wait wasn't too bad
