Olympic village suggestions

Take a stroll to Campangolo. They have awesome Italian food and do some farm to table. I would recommend going Upstairs where you will find some of the cities best cocktails and a burger that is awesome. I believe you can also order their entire menu upstairs.

Farina is also a great bet!

Who (bakery) makes great fresh cherry pies ?

The Broadmoor Bakery looks amazingly nostalgic. Next time I trek out for berries I'll surely check it out.

While you are in Richmond I would recommend going to L'Opera Patisserie

The croissants are flaky and buttery and are on par if not better then Vancouver's top spots (Beaucoup, Haas, etc). Also, their duck and mushroom pot pie its worthy of the journey to richmond.

The Pie Shoppe is probably a good bet. I had a blueberry buttermilk pie from there last week and it was superb.

Morning coffee/muffin in Vancouver

Beyond Bread at 4th and Alma has excellent pastries. Coffee is ok.

+1 for Citadella as well.

Why is there such a lack of places on the west side?

One Day in Victoria (Cruise Docked)

Foi Epi
IMO one of the best bakeries in Canada. Awesome bread and pastries. Addicting soft serve ice cream with local seasonal toppings. oh ya.

Uchida
Authentic Japanese food. Tastiest fish in Victoria. He mills his own rice and is very careful only to serve what is best that day. Lunch only and they sell out quick.

RFBF is good but its not mind blowing or particularly special.

Ice

I am having a bunch of people over and was wondering if anyone knew where to get a lot of ice for a good price. Gas stations and usual grocery stores are quite expensive. Any advice?

Good Bread in Van

Beyond Bread at Broadway and Alma.

Rise Artisan baking - available at the farmers market. Chris Brown, the owner is opening a bakery on Fraser in the next couple of months. This place will have the best bread in the city.

Fresh whole wheat pasta

he makes 2 types of pasta:

whole wheat and white flour.

I know this may come as a surprise to you but quality goods cost more. If you want low quality then you can find some Olivieri in the refrigerated department at Save on Foods.

Return of the refuel burger at Campagnolo, Vancouver

I went here a couple of nights ago. The burger is better then the refuel burger. It juicy and is extremely flavourful. The sauce and cheese were spot on.

At $8.50 (plus $4 for fries) its a steal.

Kaplan's closed ???

Romanian is unparalleled, along with Hess in Jerusalem.

Omnitsky's products are second rate and terribly overpriced.

They are moving from their Cambie location and replacing Kaplan's. Their products are ok.

Best place to buy a French press or ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

If you want to go high end then get an espro press or a stainless one. They are pricey but they will last forever. Its probably a worthwhile purchase

The glass ones will break and are expensive and a pain in the arse to replace.

or go low end:

Its works great and when you break it....just buy a new one.

cheapest butcher for natural meats?

Windsor Meats had decent (not great) prices and they have special 'cuts' for dog food.

Best Ramen

Hello again.

This weekend a good friend of mine is coming to visit from Seattle. He is an absolute ramen fiend. I do not have much knowledge of ramen places in the city so I need your help. I am looking for the the top 2 or 3 places in the lower mainland. Price and location are no object. The only thing that matter is the best tasting.

Thank you in advance for your help!

small group dinner?!

Hey All,

I am looking to go for a nice dinner for 8 people. The original plan was to go to Les Faux Bourgeios but they can't accommodate 8 on the night we want.

We would like something around the same price range, but are not feeling like anything Asian.

Any suggestions?

Update on Indian in Vancouver?

Check out Mirichi at 63rd and Granville. Its not the nicest looking place, but the food is absolutely outstanding. They don't have a website so here is the yelp (gasp, sorry) link.

Restaurant near Cellar jazz club?

+1 for The Wolf and Hound. Among the best pub food in the city. Great pot pies, poutine, and beef dip. Also a nice selection of beers on tap and a really chill atmosphere.

Beaucoup Praise for Beaucoup Bakery

I have only had really excellent baking from Beaucoup. My only issue is that I find the place a little too 'precious' for my liking. Its just not my style. Additionally, the staff are far too pretentious, why can't they have some fun, or even crack a smile.

I do however continue to return for the tasty treats.
