I haven't plugged myself for awhile, :wub:

But if you can wait for a Sunday night, at the Fiction Winebar we do a Kobe tenderloin and 6 garlic prawns for a pornographically low $15.

I wont be undersold.

I have never heard someone use the word pornographic in that way but it really drove the point home.

I'm feeling a nostalgic sort of cloud swirling around...and I hear the voice..."I won't be undersold", but what the hell did he sell?

Was it suits, or (keeping it on topic ) ...steaks?

Any good Island kid will tell you that that is the voice of Mr Dodd, of Dodd's Furniture. He may be wearing green hulk makeup, or he may be a floating head on an animated astronaut background, but when it comes to furniture he just won't be undersold.

It has also just occured to me that there may have been a used car salesman in Wash state that also used that catch phrase, in that case though I think he blew stuff up to get his point across. Crazy Someone.

But Mr Sherwood is the first restauranteur, AFAIK, who will not be undersold.

There was also the United Buy & Sell Furniture Warehouse (it's now United Furniture Warehouse) commercial. Touted by a big moustachioed man often wearing overalls waving his arms around.

Anyways, I'm definitely going to try the steak at Aurora this Saturday (yay, 2nd birthday dinner!). I was torn between the potato-wrapped sablefish & the steak, but I'm gonna go for the steak now.

I had a REALLY good grilled prime rib at La Regalade with my family for my birthday last Saturday - slightly charred on the outside, juicy & red on the inside :wub: Served with shallots, garlic cloves & roasted potatoes in a giant pan. We order this every time we go! It's only $24.95 for a really big portion (it doesn't say how many ounces it is).

Sean, that burger I had at your restaurant a few weeks ago was AMAZING, by the way - I never knew burgers could be that good!! :wub:

Unfortunately BCinBC, I've seen the pirates of the Caribbean/hulk Mr Dodd on TV and while he won't be undersold either, he's not Harry Hammer.

If you ever heard his voice, you'd remember it too.

But he was years ago and you're far too youthful to remember me thinks (and I'm too old not to).

Best cheap steaks in Vancouver?

Wow that is quite the spread for a 2nd birthday. When I turned 2 I was probably revelling with Jello pudding.

I'll second the Hamilton Street Grill, and add the Steak Frites at Salade des Fruites.

SdF is a very good choice, I really like their ribeye (and have raved about their fries enough). VanLee made a recent trip there, in the Cultural Centers thread.

What about Saltlik? Is it open? Is it expensive? Has anyone gone? What up?

ETA: Oh found Jamie's post HERE. They open Dec 9, maybe the perfect opportunity to head down there and let us all know how it is.

Haha :raz: Try adding another digit after the 2 :wink: I actually have some pictures from my birthday party when I turned 2. I think I had a Chinese cake - you know, the sponge cake layered with fruit kind.

Apparently I have the attention span of a gnat, because I neglected eatrustic's mention of Saltlik above.

What I wanted to say tho was that the legendary HSG Hanger Steak is just barely breaking your budget guideline at $26 (IIRC). Make up for the $1 difference with a cheap but cheerful glass of Chilean cabernet.

Okay I have to ask, is this actual Kobe beef, as in raised and slaughtered in Kobe, or simply beef from the Wagyu breed?

Because there is a difference - a big difference.

Nice call,

To clarify, it has not been hand massaged by Japanese virgins, nor has it been fed a strict heineken diet. Often we've had to resort to identifying the wyagu beef as the same used as Kobe as most don't realize what wyagu is.

This is organic, grass fed wyagu from a ranch in the Okanagan.

Goin' down to Aurora for my red meat fix later, is Sammy working tonight Kurtis/Jeff?

I'll 3rd HSG. After going together to try the Hangar steak, my husband thought it was so good he took 3 of his buddies there to try it out and they all thought it was amazing as well!
