Help me document some good eats between screenings
Hi all -- some of you may remember I posted a list of restos and the ones I tried during the Vancouver Int'l Film Fest last fall here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/656652?tag=search_results;results_list
Well I'm heading to Doxa this week and next and wondering if there are any new or tried and true that I missed. The theatres are Pacific Cinematheque (Howe near Davie) and VanCity Seymour near Davie) so walking distance is a huge plus.
A few new (to me) ones I'm eyeballing:
Calli Mexican 1102 Davie at Thurlow (604) 633-9950 http://www.callirestaurant.com/index.htm
Joyeux Cafe (551 Howe Street btwn Dunsmuir and Pender) which has Vietnamese specials apparently (though it is a bit of a hike, like La Taqueria far)
Gyudon on Robson near Richards
TIA for any ideas... lunch or dinner or snacks...
Been to Joyeux a couple of times.
This is for Joyeaux - that's their spelling. First time I had what they call a creped pancake. Pretty good - but then I'm a sucker for anything with squid. Second was the pho. It was just alright. I've come to the conclusion, though, I'm not much of a pho fan.
It had high ceilings and felt kind of sterile.
