  1. Thanks, yes fmed is right, two shops north of Kintaro. Too bad about Corner Suite Bistro de Luxe. We brought a few students there for tasting we thought the place was pretty busy.
  2. Looks like Yoshoku-Ya is closed on Denman, to be soon replaced by:
  3. I understand Yoshi is gone. Best sushi in my opinion is: Sushi Hachi Restaurant 8888 Odlin Crescent, #1278 Richmond, BC V6X3Z8 Tel: (604) 207-2882 Just husband and wife team, and make sure you book in advance, very busy they don't even do takeouts.
  4. I remember 17 years ago at the old Star Anise, they had a killer pork chop..
  5. Lumiere has been nice, they have a summer pre-fixe menu: SUMMER PRIX FIXE Available before 7pm THREE COURSE MENU $65 Wine Pairing $35 DUNGENESS CRAB WITH CHAMPAGNE MANGO Pickled Papaya, Piquillo Pepper Coulis, Coriander BEET AND VODKA CURED HAMACHI White Sturgeon Caviar, Baby Beets, Horseradish Cream PAN ROASTED QUALICUM BAY SCALLOPS Sweet Corn Succotash, Fried Okra . . . . . . .

  6. Any gossips on what's happening to Chow's space?
  7. Our favourite Korean BBQ in lower mainland: Kyung Bok Palace in North Vancouver (much better than the Richmond location) 143 3rd Street West North Vancouver 604-987-3112 Go Gung 1410 Parkway Blvd Coquitlam 604-552-7722 The above restaurants offer the best Kalbi in our opinion.
  8. Yes, we like this version with the meat and skin together! The ox tail is also good, so is their soup and their "jer jer vegetables" in a sizzling hot pot.
  9. We discovered a very good Chinese restaurant on Renfrew at East 2nd called Bing Sheng. It's quite authentic serving local dishes you expect to see in southern parts of China. In fact, it's so good that we offered to help them do up menu translations into English. Reasonable prices, they even let you weigh your king crab before ordering. But then, I guess one can never be 100% certain if the weighted crab is the same as the cooked one..
  10. Went to Market for dinner on Monday. Absolutely agree with the above posts, food was truly excellent, at very good prices. Funny we ran into a friend who went on Saturday, and he already returned on Monday for more! I think I'm going back next week.
  11. http://www.mikurestaurant.com/ to replace the old Spotted Prawn at 1055 W Hastings.
  12. I don't use Open Table myself, but find it interesting they specifically target hotel staff members with their OTconcierge. Not sure how current the following article is, submitted to us by one of our students: OpenTable.com Launches OTconcierge; First Full-Service Concierge Solution Offers Personalized Online Access to Restaurant Reservations Nationwide OpenTable.com (www.opentable.com), the leading supplier of Internet-enabled customer relationship management, yield management and reservation management tools to the restaurant industry, today announced the launch of OTconcierge, the first in
  13. I wonder how much of it is driven by hotel concierges that utilize opentable for bookings? Anyone know what percentage of Opentable reservations are the actual guest themselves vs. a concierge? ← Sounds like a perfect project for a hotel management course study group, I'll ask around.
  14. Do they list out the Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate scores on their wines?
  15. I agree, very nicely done with a lot of sauce, we always order the rack of lamb, very consistent, best lamb in town in my opinion. The other great dishes would be the tomato soup and duck liver pate (the very smooth kind), also very good. Le Crocodile would be my first choice if you are looking for somewhere reputable and romantic. Excellent service at the restaurant as always. My second choice of lamb would be at Vij's but then, no reservations.
