Good to hear! I thought i was one of the few who doesn't particularly enjoy Stepho's anymore. I haven't been there for maybe a year or two because it's just too damn greasy and not that great imho. I always wonder why people line up for so long just to get a table.......

$1.40 for a drink at almost any restaurant is cheap.

He's referring to the addition of $1.40 to simply add ice to a drink that is included with the cost of your meal.

Since Majin is Greek, it seems like Majin has extremely high standards when it comes to Greek food, which I can understand. I am Korean, and for me to go out and pay to eat a cuisine that I daily cook/eat at home, the Korean restaurant would have to be damn good. But, saying there are no good Greek places in Vancouver, is a little discouraging for newbies who want to try out Greek cuisine...

There must be at least a few 'decent' Greek restaurants that you would suggest to other non-Greeks.

because it isn't greek food. It's like someone giving you a bowl of rice and saying its chinese food.

And to be honest greek food on its own is pretty straight forward and lacks creativity.

Turkish food is shitloads better.

Every Vietnamese place has their own speciality so makes sure you choose the right one.

Pho - Green Lemon Grass in richmond.

I think own and operated by Chinese but I find their pho better than a lot of other places. However, they are not significantly better than your typical Pho Hoa or Thai Son.

To summarize, Mad Greek is mediocre at best.
And there are no great greek places nearby.

While on the topic of Greek cuisine, what about Kerkis in Kits? I went there about a year ago and it was pretty good...

Good and cheap dim sum I would recommend Golden Harvest, for GREAT dim sum I would go to Kirin but it's like triple the price.

HK BBQ: Like others have said, BBQ Master is tops. Melt in your mouth crispy pork goodness!

Viet Sandwich: Au Petite on Fraser, killer subs.

Deer Garden noodle soups are big and delicious ...

Man I could seriously go on FOREVER ... the diversity of food in Vancouver is mindbloggling and we are truly blessed and spoiled to have so many choices within a rocks throw distance. I don't have all night to list good food in every cuisine class offered in this city.

Tung Hing Bakery

Over the past 5 years, they have totally jacked up the price of their subs...
from 2.25, 2.50, 2.75 and now it's $3.25 i think?

Tung Hing Bakery

Don't tell them, but I'd still gladly pay 2x that amount.

Like others have said, their bread is zomg-good.
