Green Salads YVR?

i highly recommend Hy Bar at either City Square on Cambie and 12th or their location downtown on Hornby between Nelson and Robson. tons of variety!

Advice on bouquet garni?

i prefer to use the fresh tie up version. i take the bay leaf and any other 'hard' herb and wrap around it the 'flexible' herbs and then tie it with cotton. i get less breakup that way

pork shoulder in crock pot

i agree, no liquid needed. i usually cut my roast up to 2 smaller roasts to increase surface area for the rub

Dinner near Tsawwassen, Delta

taverna gorgona. i have mixed feelings about it. i found the prices high for the quality of food and service inconsistant

Dinner near Tsawwassen, Delta

if you want to stay near the ferries, i would suggest mario'skitchen in tsawwassen, for a casual family place. ribs and pizza are very good. Illuminate is great too( no website, but google illuminate tsawwassen for directions) , but perhaps not as casual. dinner's range in the 20-25 but the food is very good. my biggest complaint about south delta ( tsawwassen/ladner) is the lack of good restaurants.

In search of mini hamburger/slider buns in Vancouver

i second those, they are ciabatta style and very tasty!

Best places in Vancouver?

cioppinos for sure!

Should I buy a Keurig

i bought the b60 model and i really like it. i like that i dont waste a whole pot of coffee when i am sometimes the only one having a cup. it works great when we have family gatherings and that one person wants a decaf. presto!
i too cant stand the disposable cups so i have the K-cup. works great and i can put freshly ground beans in there.
coffee is nice and hot as well.
i personally cant drink coffee from a coffee press. for some reason my stomach cannot tolerate it.
i highly recommend the Keurig!

(Vancouver) How is the new Lumiere?

no. last trip to lumiere was disappointing. went soon after feenie left and it was obviously not up to the caliber that we had experienced there before. no spark at all, so i too am looking forward to hearing what its like now
