Shizen Ya (Fairview): Organic Japanese Food

Shizen Ya is a unique chain of sushi restaurants (they have one location on Hornby and this location on West Broadway). This isn’t your run-of-the-mill sushi joint that pumps out cheap California rolls.

Breakfast Table: Coffee-Crusted Pork Belly Benedict

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love breakfast. So when I heard about a place called “Breakfast Table”, I pretty much knew that I had to come and try it out (although I was partly worried that I’d wind up in a furniture store… that’s my kind of luck).

Sushi Dragon: Surprisingly Good Take-Out

While running errands back in October, we were looking for something quick and tasty to eat around the Broadway area. Since there is an overabundance of sushi places in Vancouver, we decided to try Sushi Dragon.

Apollonia Greek – Understated Greek Restaurant

Apollonia Greek Restaurant is a small Greek restaurant located just on the outskirts of Granville Island. Given the building renovations they were doing when we visited at the end of July, it was rather nondescript from the outside which probably explains why it wasn’t super busy.

Royal Seoul House Korean Restaurant

Royal Seoul House Korean Restaurant has been a staple on Broadway since 1990. I remember this being my introduction to Korean food back in the 90’s but I haven’t been back here in years.

I’ve been wanting to try Jitlada for a very long time… but, for whatever reason, we haven’t been able to find the time.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant – Dim Sum

It’s been a few years since we were last at Dynasty Seafood Restaurant on West Broadway. I suppose that’s why we didn’t remember that they have free underground parking in the back (just remember to not pay in the parking lot and give your stall number to the restaurant)… they really need bigger signs for this.

Vana Vietnamese Cuisine (City Square)

As I mentioned on my review of Teya Grill, we found ourselves in the food court of City Square. There’s a lot of empty food stalls here and it’s rarely busy. I decided to try Vana because I was in the mood for Vietnamese food.

Teya Grill (City Square)

Teya Grill is one of the few food stalls in City Square. I’m not sure why, but the food court here is really pathetic and hardly used. I suppose there’s plenty of places for people to eat if they head down a couple blocks to Broadway.

Thai House (Fairview) – AYCE Brunch

So, it’s been about 2 years since our last visit to the Thai House located on 7th Ave. We were in the neighbourhood and had a craving for their all-you-can-eat brunch. Not so much for the amount of food that you can get at an AYCE, but because we like having a variety of dishes.

Banana Leaf – Christmas Set Menu

We’ve been to the Banana Leaf restaurant located on West Broadway a number of times in the past and keep returning because the food’s pretty good and the drinks aren’t that bad either.

La Taqueria (Cambie Street)

I’ve been looking forward to trying out La Taqueria for quite some time. The location on Cambie Street near Broadway always seems so busy whenever I pass by. Fortunately, I managed to visit seconds before the lunch crowd rushed through the door.
