Hastings - Vancouver Restaurants
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..
Caffe Artigiano (web site, map, 4359 Hastings Street, Burnaby, BC, Canada, phone: 604-473-2180) is a coffee house / cafe with several locations around Vancouver. They are famous for their award winning specialty coffees. The manager of the Burnaby location, Sammy Piccolo, is a Canadian Barista champion, and several-time medal winner from the World Barista Championship.
Pictured below is the Smoked Turkey Panino ($8.49) which was really tasty, as well as a Tall Caffe Americano ($2.45). I don’t usually drink coffee, but I’m sure glad that I made the exception and tried the coffee at Caffe Artigiano!
