Chowish near UBC

Plenty of great places there!! If you want some real good places to check out with a decent budget: Coco and Olive, East is East, Cadina Taverna, Ginger and Chili, Burgoo. If you can, check out Jang Mo Jib. There is a location on Robson and Denman, and there is one in Richmond as well near alexandra.

Best Burger in Vancouver - what's your vote?

Oh man I've got to try this Urban Burger! It sounds awesome.

But a couple of places I'm suprised, astonished that no one's brought up; Red Robin (those friend onions on top of the burger (goodness!!!) and another place near west side: The Galley (Located in the Jericho Sailing Centre) have great burgers. That, with a corona and a killer view of the beach on a summer day. Nothing can be better than that.

And of course... white spot =)

Are Chain Restaurants a good or bad thing?

I feel like the more less family oriented chains have become a social well, where people can gather after work and have a couple of drinks. Not to mention, they normally close at midnight. (2 o'clock during the Olympics). And it is a good place for people to meet and have a few drinks before going out on town. So should people(foodies) really frown upon people who just want to have a good time?

Not many Vancouverites have gotten into the food scene yet. Living here and eating healthy all the time is already a hard and expensive thing to maintain. So eating out at indie restaurants may not always seem like something one would want to do. I personally think that because we see the names (brands) of Earls and Cactus Club around so much, that when some people who do want to go out for a nice dinner in a nice setting, will choose to think of these places first. Instead of someplace such as Chambar where it might be seen as "pretentious" by someone who doesn't dine out much because of how respected and praised the restaurant is. Myself, I still believe that Vancouver has yet to make its mark on the North America as one of the captials of dining experiences.

There is something about a Burger at triple O's. It always ways makes me crave one. I feel guilty for wanting one every tuesday when its cheaper too.

Are Chain Restaurants a good or bad thing?

What are your thoughts about Chain Restaurants? Do you think it's a valuable asset to our community? It does provide consistency, and value. However, is there a problem with the mainstream food that is on the menus? It does seem like the menu is targeted towards a specific age group. But couldn't one say that it is a good 'transition' for younger people to approach eating out at restaurant instead of at the food courts at shopping malls?

I've been reading the posts on this board for a while, and I've never seen the selection of restaurants such as Earls, Joey's and Cactus Club been mentioned for any of the suggestions to eat in Vancouver.

Just wondering what your thoughts are.

Vancouver markets & early breakfast options

Sophie's Cosmic Cafe, Cafe Zen, in Kits,. are places you should check out for breakfast.
For Markets, there really isn't a daily market that would be on par with what you are looking for. The closest would be the whole of Granville Island, including the Public Market. Baguette La Et E'cholate is a great bakery. And of course, Terra is awesome. Check out Caper's on 4th Ave sometime.

Horseradish in Vancouver

i agree with hclass, make horseradish by yourself. Add some white vinegar and sugar after you grated it with a food processor with the grater. Beware, don't sniff it!

Casual (jeans) date nights in Vancouver...

The Eatery is a relaxed place.
Some Kinda Pasta on 10th Ave is a good place as well. You could walk around Jericho Beach as well.

Looking for those "hidden gems" in Vancouver and Victoria

During the summer, all you had to look for was the large, 1-2 hour lineup.

I've lived in vancouver for a while. And if you want CHEAP sushi, with BIG portions, go to Samurai Sushi right beside Oakridge Centre on Oak street. It is a TINY joint that serves up right. Anyone who has been there will verify it.
