Wings @ Burnaby.
10/10.
Service was excellent. Even got 2x cream to get rid of burning Bobby Wing sensation when I didn't ask for it.

Book Kyung Ban Jeoum,

One of the mods brought me there today.
It's very different than the usual korean places I've tried.
There were some families as well as some young couples there (all korean).

We only had 3 people, so we weren't able to order too much.
Just 2 dishes, plus the usual banchang
  • Sweet and sour pork.
    Yes, *gasp*, I would never order this.
    But it turns out, it's not the crappy chinese stuff my uncle used to make in his small-town-chinese-restaurant-for-whities
    There is no ketchup!
    I would recommend this to anyone.
  • Black bean noodle with "sauce".
    Sauce was made of soy, sugar, cabage, onions and some braised beef.
    Yes, I could probably duplicate it at home, but it's like your grandmother's spag-bowl. It'll be close, but never the same.
Verdict?
Despite all the servers for mistaking me for korean (I don't think I look korean), I will definitely return.
Food was quality and has a level of complexity beyond the usual "jang mo jibs" chains.
Servers were attentive in a casual manner (but not ultra-professionally efficient), they don't hover, yet are easily found.

Staff was a bit sparse though.
Unless staff numbers are greatly increased on weekends or event nights (fireworks), I'd probably stay away from them.

Le Crocodile

Starters -
Not on menu - Baked onion soup 6/10 (very little cheese, not baked tills its brown, plus was kinda watery)
Foie Gras - 1 big piece of foie gras , 1 scallop , 4 balls of melon, couple pieces of lettuce 8.5/10
Baked Bone marrow - 3 big bones, tomato fondant, mixed greens, and tiny toast 6.5/10 (way too oily and filling)

Entree

No dessert as we couldnt even finish me and my fiancee's entree, ended packing it home (bone marrow, foie gras too fillling!)

Ichiro Sushi in Steveston village - 9/10

Good food, our whole party was impressed. Service was very good. Portion sizes were a bit smaller but lots of flavour in every dish.

Zakkushi on Main & King Ed - 7/10

We made a reservation for 10 people at 9pm. Made the reservation way ahead of time. Arrived only to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes after our reso time. I realize they only have 1 table for large groups, but they really missed the mark on timing.

Food was okay and the setting was nice for something in East Van. Service was infrequent.

Yaletown Brewpub - 8/10

Nice setting for people watching. My pizza was very good. Service was so/so. Patio seating lacks privacy from adjacent parties IMO. Ordered a double highball, pour was weak.

Hapa Yaletown - 9/10

Great service, nice setting, good drinks and decent food.

Ouch. Medina is alright and of the times I've been there, no hostess as well but we were well taken care of nonetheless.

Yes. Cafeteria is a good pick. I had dinner there several weeks ago. Food and service was excellent.

I've always like the food at Cafe Medina.
Good, yet a little adventurous.
But never pretentious.
Too bad your experience wasn't up to par, cause when I've gone, I would at least call it fair or better.


Just did Angkor Restaurant tonight.
http://dinehere.ca/vancouver/angkor-restaurant

I went there on a recommendation from a friend.
And I must admit, she did not steer me wrong at all.

The place is small and unassuming, it's a typical family run tiny asian place in a strip mall.
Cuisine: Cambodian/Southeast Asian.
We went for a late dinner at 8:00pm and it was empty.
Thus service was perfect and attentive.

The owner/family were just sitting at a table to the side quietly chatting, we never even heard them.

Prices are between $6.50-$8.00 for a meal.
Sizes will feed an average appetite, maybe a little less since the gentle use of vinegar and fried garlic really bring out the hunger.

We had:
  • Seafood Egg Noodles (dry): AMAZING. I will rank this in the top 5 noodles dishes I've ever had. Noodles al dente. Fresh cuttlefish, cuttlefish balls, imitation crabmeat? (yeah, it actually works), topped with fried garlic and cilantro. YUM.
  • Hainamese Chicken: Quality. Chicken was moist. Ginger sauce is miles better than anywhere else I've tried. It comes with ginger rice, but it was probably a bit below average. But what the heck, it was at no extra charge (wasn't even mentioned on the menu).
  • Lemongrass Porkchop: Above average. Good flavor, not dry. Rice, no complaints. Fried egg served sunny-side-up, yolk half set (i prefer more runny, but that's just a preference). Fish sauce, well above average.

Whole-heartedly recommended.
I will definately be making a return trip.

Ive actually gone before and had quite a nice brunch, but that saturday it just seemed that they could do no right. Ive been in the industry for a while so when a restaurant expects me to walk in and write my name down when theirs so many great options near by, it seems not only lazy but arrogant. My biggest peeve was the fact that they just shrugged off by saying "oh and were out of waffles" uh, huh? so its a Belgian waffle house, and your out? that's when you close the doors and apologize. It's like if i went to mortons and was told just so you know we wont be serving steaks, cause you know were out.

I went to DB moderne bistro tonight,

Started off with a chef's special, forget the name, but it was a square slice of smoked salmon with a salad on top of grapefruit, breadcrumbs, and avocado all perfectly diced in identical shape. 8/10, small portion but tasty.

They give you complimentary cod fishcake balls. 6/10, boring but good nonetheless.

Flatbread with wild mushroom 9/10, thought it would be boring but it tasted quite good. I was hoping for the escargot like the menu says online but they didn't have it.

mains,

chef's special, veal wellington....not as good as it sounds, taste was quite bland and the veal was cooked perfectly but was boring. had spinach around the veal, served with asparagus and white asparagus puree.

Coq Au Vin, chicken, very good but very salty. comes with roasted garlic and bacon.

dessert was bailey's sundae? I wasn't impressed. And the chef's special, peach cobbler with cream cheese ice cream and fresh rasberry. 8/10


bill was $121.

Get a side of fries, theyre awesome!

overall, too salty....7.5/10 experience. Would like to try the burger but people have not been impressed..

Jack in the Box @ Birch Bay

I decided to be boring and got the Jumbo Jack combo. I normally get the Sourdough Jack but decided against it which I will stick to hereon. 5/10.

I ran into an old skool RS member, KingzCHB while there. Haven't seen that guy in ages!

Had a little get together with friends. I made some sushi & Takoyaki, but it was more of a roll your own hand cone party.

Makoto Sushi (Rumble and Royal Oak in South Burnaby)

8/10

People say it's hit and miss, so I went to see what that meant. First of all, it's a mom and pop kind of place. Run by a Japanese couple.

I went there at around 8:15 in the evening (they close at 9:30). Sushi was not bad. The rice was a little on the moist side on the BC Roll I ordered, but the nigiri was perfect. The donburi was awesome. Real home cooking taste. Yakitori was also done well. The owner came out and chatted for a while. OK, he did more than that, which was nice at first. Anyway, it's a place to try if you are in the neighbourhood. Definitely go for the Oyako donburi.
