reLISH Gourmet Burgers comes to Vancouver from New Brunswick

I noticed today that a Relish is opening up on central Lonsdale as well.

Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA on tap -- who has it in Vancouver?

I had some at Portland Craft this afternoon, so they definitely have it.

Dim Sum and Sushi with Excellent Service and Good value in the North Shore?

I live in North Van and can't think of any Dim Sum. The food at Westview is good, but I always get take-out. There are lots of sushi places, but none that I would say are superb quality and attentive. Sushi Bella is decent, but the service is spotty.

Nice but less expensive wedding locations?

How about La Terrazza?

Savary Island Pie flooded?

They are closed for at least a month, according to their site :(

Purebread 'n the Hood-It's Open!!!

went by today - closed due to flood!

Arms Reach? Best view/meal dinner (again)

As mentioned in the link posted by LR - Salmon House On The Hill has a good view and decent food. I had a nice dinner there with clients about a month back.

new to north shore

I enjoy Mythos and Pasparos in North Van. Mythos is a bit more casual.

new to north shore

I also enjoy Mangia e Bevi in West Vancouver. In North Van I like Cazba as noted by waylman, as well as Finch and Barley for middle eastern fusion pub food, Tamarind Hill for Malaysian, District for a beer and a snack, Pier 7 for a drink on the patio (food is only so-so). Thomas Haas down by the auto mall makes good pastries (closed Sunday Monday).

Coloured Bread?

The Bakehouse in Edgemont Village does rainbow bread. They might be able to do individual colours.

BC grown dried shitake mushrooms

There is also a vendor at Lonsdale Quay market in North Vancouver - West Coast Wild Foods, I think.

Breakfast in Vancouver 2014

I like to peruse this blog when I'm looking for new places to go...

Good to excellent Greek restaurants in Vancouver city limits ?

Pasparos in North Vancouver.

Best Local Type Chains in Greater Vancouver Area?

The one at Park Royal is closing soon (relocating down the parking lot). The one at Park and Tilford still does car service.

The Current State of Persian food in Vancouver? Who's on top?

Cazba on 16th!


my favourite is Nicli. Yum!

Restaurant Recs For A Girls Weekend in San Diego

Thanks for all the recs... looks like we'll have a good list to start exploring. Local input is much appreciated - I know the 'where should we eat' posts are kind of annoying, and I'm happy to reciprocate if need be :)

Restaurant Recs For A Girls Weekend in San Diego

Hi San Diego Chowhounders,

A girlfriend and I are taking a long weekend and visiting San Diego. We are from Vancouver, so we eat a lot of seafood and Cantonese / Thai / Indian / Vietnamese / Sushi day to day, and are looking for whatever's great in San Diego. We are looking for 2 nice dinners and some casual lunch spots. Our hotel is near the Midway, and we won't have a car, but are willing to walk/cab/transit, and intend to be out and about exploring your fine city, so we're not restricted to that area.

Thanks in advance!

Sushi Bella on Davie in Vancouver

The original Sushi Bella is in North Van, across from my office, so a number of us go there a lot. I haven't been to the one on 4th in Kits, so I can't comment on it, and the one on Davie is in my neighbourhood - I have tried it a couple of times. I find the one in North Van to be better. The Davie location is hit or miss. I enjoy the specialty rolls and agedashi tofu trio.

Wedding cake recommendations

I have used Cake Conspiracy on several occasions. Can't speak to the gf cakes, but the other cakes are delish!

In search of ramps

Acorn on Main has them on the menu right now.

Where to Locate Mexican Ingredients

Los Guerreros on Kingsway may have what you need

Kits Happenings

I stumbled across that one (5th and Quebec) last weekend! Seems they're popping up everywhere!

Recommendations needed for a wine group dinner

Brix might be an option... they might negotiate their corkage fees.


I will throw Raincity Grill into the mix.

FWIW they refer to themselves as pacific north west :)

Boneless chicken breasts

yup... you get the whole sitting on the floor, drapey fabric, pillows and candles experience.

Boneless chicken breasts

Paryatan street near Mandala...I've heard that it recently moved, but ask around, it's popular. It's a veg/middle eastern type of place. Fantastic hummus, falaffel, salads, breads

Boneless chicken breasts

I always get mine at Costco. Side note, Or2K in Thamel is yummy and a nice change from Dal Bhat!

What Are You Enjoying From President's Choice Blue Menu (or Organics) Products ?

frozen greek yoghurt smoothie bars! and the peanut sauce.
