Library Square Public House (Part 2)

Library Square Public House (web site, 300 West Georgia St., Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone: 604 633-9644) is a neighborhood pub conveniently located near Queen Elizabeth Theatre as well as the Vancouver sports stadiums downtown: GM Place Stadium and BC Place Stadium.

Pictured below is my very delicious Mushroom Burger ($11) which had all the toppings including bacon, cheese, onions, lettuce, and a slice of tomato. I added an extra $1 to get a side Caesar salad instead of the house salad. For more info view: Part 1.

Hon’s Wun-Tun House Robson (Downtown)

Hon’s Wun-Tun House (1339 Robson Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone: 604-685-0871) is a large cafeteria-style Chinese restaurant downtown that is very popular with families and casual diners because of the low prices and generous portions.

Hon’s has other locations in Chinatown (288 East Pender Street, Vancouver, 604-681-8842), New Westminister (408 6th St, New Westminster, 604-520-6661), Coquitlam (310 – 3025 Lougheed Hwy, Coquitlam, 604-468-0871), and Richmond (101 – 4600 No. 3 Road, Richmond, 604-273-0871).

Hon’s on Robson has an open kitchen concept, with a totally separate kitchen for Vegetarian dishes as well as a special area where they prepare the potstickers. On Saturday during the day Hon’s serves Chinese Dim Sum, which is always a special treat. We ordered the many Vegetarian Dim Sum items pictured below, and our total bill for two people came to just under $20.
