  1. La Brasserie for Franco-German. Their onion tarts and roast pork are great.

      There has n`t been tarts like that on Davie street for a while

    2. Bin 941 Tapas Parlour

      I say this with reservation but lots of people like Stepho's Souvlaki Greek Taverna ‎for Greek food. I liked it too a lot of years ago. You will find relatively decent, uninspired Greek food with a large portion size for little dollars if that's what you like.

      As el lobo solo said, La Brasserie is a board favourite here.

        That's funny, I trucked up Davie tonight before a screening to check out Calli which did look very promising. Will hit it up soon for sure.

        Not dinner but I had some mighty fine fruit turnovers from Cho Pain last weekend, and quite possibly the best Eccles cake I've ever had the pleasure to ingest. It has almost no signage.

        Another place that's on my hit list is Thai Basil for specific dishes recco'd by a local blogger Cheap Appetite who likes their real Thai Phad Thai (you have to ask for it) and the authentic Pad Krapow and Pad KeeMao. It is just off Davie on Thurlow, very small.

        I'm also intrigued by La Belle Patate though I haven't had a chance to try it yet. 26 different kinds of poutine may be gilding the lily but could be worth a pop in.

        For a cheap'n'tasty dinner, try Nuba on Seymour just off Davie. The falafel sandwiches are all that and a bag of pita chips, and I would walk a mile for a plate of Najib's Special, a crunchy, lemony cauliflower dish. It's also quite small and does a roaring take out trade but I like to dine in, especially before a show at the VanCity Theatre kitty corner, which incidentally has the cushiest seats in town and shows only independent films.

        I also like Lolita's though I tend to go earlier to avoid the crowds. It's run by a former "Bin" person and I think the same architect/planner must have designed it -- very squeezy. Nice drinks, good guacamole and tasty tacos.
