These reviews don’t really warrant a post each, so here are 3 cheap meals I’ve had around Vancouver in the last little while. I love places where you can get a whole meal for <$10, almost even more than fancy schmancy places.
Chicken shawarma plate ($10). Comes with salad and hummus and rice. Pretty good for Vancouver standards but not as good as Ottawa shawarma. Needs more pickled turnips!! But really, everything tasted decent. And it seemed clean and busy enough that I didn’t have worries about how long the meat has been rotating.
Very tasty ramen. I ordered the Tonkotsu Classic Ramen, which comes with pork belly char-siu ($10.25). I should have added the flavoured boiled egg like Scott did because that egg looked dang delicious. Anyway this ramen was nice and rich and flavourful with nice noodles. It was big enough that I couldn’t finish the whole thing. Mmm now I have a ramen craving again.
Roll Party Combo from Sushi Bay, the cheap sushi restaurant across the street from our apartment (how convenient!). BC roll, dynamite roll, spicy tuna roll, salmon roll, California roll, Alaska roll. Only $19 for all that. But I don’t particularly like salmon skin (in the BC roll) or California rolls (too boring), so it’s probably better for us to make our own choices instead of getting a party tray. I did enjoy the Alaska roll a lot though.
