Bourbon St. Grill (Metrotown): Typical Asian Food

Back in September, Bourbon St. Grill opened up in the Metrotown food court in the former Arby’s location. Now, given their name, you couldn’t be blamed for thinking that they serve up creole/cajun food originating from Louisiana.

Thai Express (Metrotown) – Food Court Eats

Thai Express opened up in the Metrotown food court earlier this year… it’s more like Thai-ish food that’s been modified to work in a fast food environment.

Chachi’s – Pulled Pork with Mac Sandwich

I don’t spend much time at Metrotown anymore… it’s just so busy and crowded! On a rare occasion that we found ourselves in Metrotown in April, we noticed a new sandwich joint had opened up in the food court called Chachi’s.

Cattle Cafe (Metrotown)

While the interior furnishings of the Cattle Cafe near Metrotown is similar to the one on Edmonds (lots of 70’s circle prints), the Metrotown location feels a bit tired.  It was quite busy at this location when we visited at 1pm and it seemed to take forever for our food to come out (we thought they lost our order).
