Anducci’s Pub and Italian restaurant downtown

Anducci’s Restaurant (map, visitor reviews, 608 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone: 604-696-5558) is a newly opened pub-style Italian restaurant at the old location of the Jester’s pub at the St. Regis Hotel downtown.

Service was attentive and the 3 pizzas we ordered were really nice. Thin crusted and tasty we all agreed, very like (my own) homemade. Wine reasonably priced; however, they were out our first two choices. Not too worry, very close to the office so will likely quickly become one of our lunch repertoires.

We started off with the Tomato and Boccicini salad (the “Caprese” salad, $11, pictured below) which was nicely presented and tasty. I then ordered a scrumptious pasta dish with salmon that had some fancy Italian name (also pictured below, $12.00). My friend had a mug of Guiness beer ($6.00) and the mixed seafood spaghettini ($14, not pictured). A good time was had by all!

Sushi Town in Burnaby (Part 3)

Sushi Town (map, visitor reviews, 5935 East Hastings, Burnaby, BC, Canada, phone 604-294-6155) is one of my favorite sushi restaurants in the Vancouver area. I went for another visit with a friend and enjoyed some of their specialty rolls (please see pictures below). The prices are very reasonable, and I think the quality of the sushi is quite high. All the food pictured below came to $29.51 including tax – a satisfying meal for 2 people!

simply put, this restaurant will give you the best bang for your buck.
just go and order sasimi and see it for yourself.
they are so huge that it makes you wonder how they make money.
this place is also very busy, therefore high turnover, so food (especially sushi and sasimi) is always fresh and tasty.
i love the ‘awesome’ roll and ‘red’ roll.. beef roll is also very good.
service is solid but can be improved.
i think waitresses are understaffed and they need to hire more waitresses..

For more photos and info, please view Part 2 or Part 1.

It’s winter and you want to take your special someone out for a romantic Indian buffet. Where would you go that has the most variety of food, good tasting curry ,and great view of the heart of Vancouver? New India.

As soon as you walk into the building, you can smell the spice. At winter time, they have their famous lamb curry.

Update: Dec. 23, 2008 – I added a new Youtube video of the lunch buffet which you can view by clicking here or use the player below.
