Roof Garten (old Ceili's).

Trying too hard to be some ritzy glowbal-eque joint. overpriced food. weak drink selection. staff was friendly, but very clear that they were new to serving. would not recommend.

Bridges for a social / environmental setting - yes.
Bridges for food / drink - absolutely not.

Considering the places your company has been going to, Bridges would be a complete insult. You'd lose your job.

I think I am like the fish counter ambassador on this forum , everyone got the po boy and gave it a 10/10
I'll re rate it and give it a 9/10

But seriously I love fried oysters and the last place I had that was happy hour at Joe Fortes and I was thoroughly disappointed.

Come to think of it ya, it's pretty sheltered but you still get sun on ya.

Earls has a decent sized open air patio as well.

Any restaurants you guys recommend for visitors from Toronto? Thinking places that are more uniquely 'Vancouver' that you can't commonly find in Toronto.

Something mid-range. I was thinking Pidgin but that's on the high side.

So far I have: Phnom Penh, Guu on Thurlow, Maenam, Chewie's Oyster House, maybe Kingyo or Zakkushi?

Any other 'uniquely-Vancouver' restaurant experiences or food?

Yeah I figured as much. But like I said, I went the night of opening day so the wait/line was expected.

For my next trip there, I'll definitely try to go during a weeknight.

^and Kingyo..

Not sure if they're uniquely Vancouver but out of your choices the best seems to be Pidgin or Maenam.

If MSG is a delicacy and doesn't exist in TO then take your friend Phnom Penh. One meal there will have a year's worth of MSG for him to indulge in

Doesn't have to be within my choices, outside choices totally welcome.

I think Pidgin and Maenam are decent choices to take guests out to town, especially they're not something that could found everywhere else (french/jap fusion, non traditional thai). I'm not very up to date on new restaurants so I can't think of any of top of my head.

4)jap food (Sushi Bar Maumi & then one that's normal sushi bella)
5)olympic village (bow down; get their chicken wings), craft for beer and food on patio at tap and barrel with their deep fried pickles
6) ice cream at famous ice cream places; earnest, bella, nitrogen ice cream (forgot the real name), soft peaks honeycomb
7) scotch tasting at Irish Heather and then end with dinner at L'Abattoir etc

Will look forward to your review. For nigiris with an average of $5-7/piece it better tastes like rainbows and sunshine.

Agreed.
Masayoshi better be delivering something sublime for those prices.

As for ramen (Robson Public Market), the place is called Hida Takayama.
I tried a few of the ramen there. Most were really just meh.
The noodles were good (I think they do them in house?). I asked for them firm and thought that was spot on.
I liked their white sesame ramen, it's really good, however, since it's just that with few condiments, it's a very 1-dimensional bowl of noodle soup.
If I could do a half bowl portion, or split it with a friend, that would be perfect. But it's just heavy, and rich with no acid or textural difference to provide contrast. My palate got super bored after 5 bites.
Also added the pork jowl which isn't super soft like Santouka, it still has some bounce. Not quite my preference, but good too.

Homer St Cafe and Bar
$12 Happy Hour Only Burger and Bud promo
I have no idea how long the promo will last





It's not a fancy-pants burger with exotic ingredients.
It's a classic burger with good ingredients done properly. I have a strong preference to the classic lettuce and tomatoes approach.
Best burger I've had in quite a while.

Stupidly juicy. Literally a small waterfall happening in the first few bites.
Can actually taste the sesame on the bun.
Balanced.

Chips great, could go for just a few more?
Coleslaw even better.

Pepperoncini as an addition was nice to cut the richness.

The only thing I'm sorta iffy on is the bun. It's a good bun, however I found it a touch too chewy for my liking.
I found it a bit too distracting from letting the patty shine as the star.
My style choice is on the opposite end of the spectrum.


Like I said, best burger in quite a while.
Totally recommend.
