turns out that my suspicions were bang on in that they were pushing more than just fish and chips, coke and heroin as well, never did eat there , kind of wish i had given it a go

    Damn, I had their Manhattan Clam Chowder in my sights for the next visit. Anyone know of another place that might do a good version?

      First Save-On Meat and now this? Our first year of marriage in Vancouver is being wiped out! Of course that was a few (many) years ago. There was no restroom but the chowder was amazing.

      The addicts were closer to Chinatown and in the Vancouver General where I worked. At least our apartment on Robson is still there. I think it was the model for Robson Arms though the building on TV looks larger. The rent was $125 a month.

        Never had a chance to go but wished I did especially years ago especially when they were super busy and had crab all lined up against the window.
