2015 Tacos Challenge (Van Foodster)

There are a number of really great food bloggers around. Some of them give honest, real reviews, know what they are talking about and care about the success of restaurants.

I am certain that Vancouver Foodster is not one of them. He is a terrible writer and demonstrates zero expertise. Not a fan

I'll stick with sherman and mijune for now.

Fish and chips that are worth a drive?

The Fish Counter has fish and chips that are worth the drive. Crispy and perfectly battered.

C-Lovers is below average.

Ended up at Mac and Jacs Roadhouse Grille http://www.roadhousegrille.ca/

Totally serviceable, good service, huge portions, overall good food. Nothing cutting edge or food that will blow your mind but a pretty classic family run diner.

I would return next time I'm in the area.

South Indian breakfast? If someone can direct me to a place that is open then I am in for sure!

Heading to Delta/Ladner/Surrey for brunch on Saturday. Anyone know of a decent place out that way? Hoping to avoid the big chains...


ISO Epazote


I called cilantro and jalapeno and they have it.

ISO Epazote

fresh, not dried.

Any idea where I can find this in Vancouver?

nine dishes

Hoping to go for dinner tonight, I called to confirm that they are actually open.

The fella that answered the phone said they are not permanently closed.

Is this old news?

Who makes the best sausages in Vancouver?

Drews aka D-Original. Hands down winner. They only drawback is that he only uses pork, so if you are anti pork for some strange reason you will have to miss out.

I'm partial to his bratwurst and the hot italian. They are spectacular.

Mt Pleasant Virgins

How is Frenchies?

Return of the refuel burger at Campagnolo, Vancouver

since when are olives and pickles fresh and not rich?

Return of the refuel burger at Campagnolo, Vancouver

Was there for brunch a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty damn good. The fried chicken and biscuits were spot on.

If you are going for a burger get some fried chicken skin - its worth it.

My only complaint is that all of their food is so rich and heavy. It would be nice to have a bit of relief when eating such heavy/rich foods.

Vancouver's underground supper clubs

I avoid these underground restaurants. The food industry is difficult enough so I would rather support those who are tax paying, rent paying, and legitimate.

Christmas Openings

Thanks for the suggestions. Had a great time at Kafka's. Superb coffee and a surprisingly amazing grilled cheese with sausage from D-Original.

Sunny Spot was closed but I didn't have a great experience last time I was there.

Christmas Openings

Thanks for the suggestions. Looks like Kafka's on main is open. Probably hit that up in the afternoon and then stroll around Mount Pleasant and see what else I can find.

Christmas Openings

Anyone know which restaurants/coffee shops/breweries will be open on the 25th?

We get pretty stir crazy after about 1ish and would love to get out.


ChocXO - "Bean to Bar Chocolatier" in Ironwood, Richmond

great intel LR. Thanks!

Vancouver’s top new restaurants of 2014

Has anyone on here been to My Shanti?

I heard it was a flop.

Port Moody or Coquitlam brunch

my SO's family lives out that way and I, as the resident food nerd, has been challenged to find a good place for brunch. All my internet sleuthing has led me to Milestones, Cora, Joey, etc. Surely there is something better.

Help please!

Stroopwafels in Vancouver???

I bought a small and delicious package last weekend at Patisserie LeBeau.

Good Bread in Van

Nelson really only makes one bread so its pretty easy to find out which one it is :)

I also really like their bread

Best izakaya for a Birthday party?

I've never had a less then stellar meal at any of the Guu locations. I believe they do not take reservation, which would probably be inconvenient for a birthday party. Suika is great and has a menu that will satisfy adventurous eaters and folks seeking standard Japanese fair.

Last time I went to Zakkushi it was pretty 'meh'. I should probably try again.

Belgian waffle place is closed?

I can't remember the name but the newly opened Belgian waffle place at Broadway and Fir is closed. Walked by today and it was totally cleaned out. That was a quick turn around.

Savary Island Pie flooded?

This past weekend I was craving one of their pies so I called. They said they will be closed for about 4 weeks. They hope to be selling pies in the next week or so but the cafe area will remain closed.

Let's talk turkey

I used a turkey from JD Farms, brined it, and cooked it using this method:

It was moist and juicy and flavourful. For stuffing I purchased some extra turkey skin and made turkey skin wrapped stuffing. It was by far the best stuffing I have ever made. Highly recommend.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Best cafes in Vancouver

I finally had one of the DB almond croissants at Matchstick and was not all that enthused. It was just too much, total overkill.

If you are looking for a DB croissant check out Beaucoup`s rhubarb croissant. yooowzaaa!

Bella Gelateria Yaletown is Open!

I wonder if the new place is decorated like the first location - with articles about the owner. His gelato is awesome...but what a guy..

New to Frasier/King Ed neighbourhood - Whats good?

I am curious to hear what y'all think of Carano. I have not been yet but heard good things.

ito togarashi - where to find in Vancouver

I am pretty sure Fujiya has it. Try their location on Clark right beside the cash register.

Main St Fish Counter News

Thanks for the intel. Love this place.
