8 @ Doneras: Middle Eastern in New West

8 @ Doneras is a small little donair shop located on Eighth Street in New Westminster, across from Douglas College and in the same complex as Rong Rong Tea House. I’m often surprised at how good food can be at these little nondescript places.

Gino’s Restaurant: Gyros

Gino’s Restaurant is located in the heart of Sapperton in New Westminster. The interior isn’t much to look at and reminds me of a sports bar that’s seen better times… the furniture seemed a bit wobbly (the backing to my booth kept wavering back and forth so I had to make sure not to lean too hard).

Young Bean Korean BBQ: New Korean Restaurant in Sapperton

Match Eatery & Public House (New Westminster): Average Bar Eats

Match Eatery & Publish House is a modern gastropub located outside of Starlight Casino in New Westminster. The interior is fairly dark and industrial-looking but they do have some skylights which lets in some natural light. I was actually surprised at how large this place is and it’s filled with large, flat screen tvs. I’m sure that it must get busy here during weekends or sporting events but it was fairly quite when I came here for lunch during the weekday.

Pho Pho You: Busy Vietnamese Restaurant in New West

There was a time when you could count the number of Vietnamese restaurants in New Westminster on one hand. Well, that’s certainly changed. Take, for instance, Pho Pho You which opened up in late 2016 in the heart of downtown (right along Columbia St).
