Boston Pizza at Metrotown

Boston Pizza Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoWe had about 15 people and we reserved only when a bunch of us after a big BBQ decided to eat more (I guess we didn’t have enough!), at Boston, and called in 20 minutes before arriving, but they were able to accommodate us.

Most people wanted a drink, rather than binge eat, and for some like myself who didn’t drink, their extensive selection made it a good choice.idearabbit_bostonpizza_metrotown1 idearabbit_bostonpizza_metrotown2

idearabbit_bostonpizza_metrotown3Sheepie ordered the Mediterranean Salad $7.49 with garden greens, cucumbers, red onions, red peppers, tomatoes, feta and Kalamata olives topped with tomato tarragon dressing. It looked pretty tasty.

I ordered the Boston Pizza’s House Salad $6.99 with garden greens, red peppers, red onions, carrot ribbons, julienned beets in their citrus vinaigrette dressing. Being it their ‘house salad’, I was a bit disappointed in seeing that Sheepie’s Mediterranean seemed fancier. However, it was an alright salad.

Smoked Applewood seasoned Cactus Cut chips covered in mozzarella, cheddar, sliced BBQ steak, red peppers and red onions drizzled with horseradish mayo and green onions. Served with salsa and our signature cactus dip. As this is best served right out of the kitchen, it is not available for take-out.

People who were more interested in drinking sitting on the other end of the table ordered the BP’s Fully Loaded Nachos (Serves 3-5) $18.99. For the size and just $3 more than the Cheesesteak Cactus Cut Nachos, this is a better deal! It’s got chili lime dusted tortilla chips, pizza mozzarella, cheddar, nacho cheese sauce, banana peppers, tomatoes, red onions and a cilantro lime lettuce mix. Topped with your choice of chorizo sausage, seasoned beef, BBQ chicken or spicy chicken. Comes with salsa and sour cream. Again, this is not available for take-out.

Service was great. The restaurant had a lively atmosphere, but not sports-bar rowdy. Great place for large groups!

Black’s Pub in Whistler

Black's Pub & Restaurant Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoThe restaurant spans from the main to the upper floor. We got the patio upstairs which was nice, though we couldn’t watch the people walk by, nor see the road bike competition going on on the hills as there were trees blocking our view. The patio was full, but the upper interior was almost empty. Since all other restaurants were packed with long lineups, we were glad to be seated right away.

idearabbit_blackspub_whistler2idearabbit_blackspub_whistler1idearabbit_blackspub_whistler5I ordered the Chicken Penne $18. At first it seemed a bit bland, but once you got to the sauces sitting at the bottom, it was just the right saltiness. Love the olive oil with the, juicy and tender chicken. It doesn’t seem much, but I was pretty full by the time I finished the dish.

idearabbit_blackspub_whistler4Sheepie had the Classic Burger $13. Thick, juicy patty fresh veggies. The thick big fries with paprika was super good, esp when hot. Thumbs up!

idearabbit_blackspub_whistler3Our friends had the Supreme pizza $27 (large 14″) with tomato sauce, mozzoarella, pepperoni, mushrooms and green peppers. It was nicely presented, and was enough to fill 2 adults.

Our server was very friendly and chatty, even with Sheepie who can be sometimes blunt. Lol.

Burger King in Port Coquitlam

Burger King Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoI’ve seen the cute chicken’s packaging, and been tempted to order them before. I finally did this time and ordered the Chicken Fries $3.99. The packaging is delightful (though not eco-friendly), with a compartment on the top to hold the sauce. (I had honey mustard). Even after you opened, it, there was a way to hold the opened packet of sauce. Not sure if I was using it right, but it did hold. idearabbit_burgerking-portcoquitlam1

The chicken fries on the other hand was a disappointment. It was hard, dry, and not much flavour unless you dunk a lot into the honey mustard sauce (or whatever you may order). It was pricey, considering you can get 5 good pieces of chicken nuggets for $1.89 at Wendy’s.

The staff was friendly. The place was very clean, as there were no other customers dning during our visit. Would not order the Chicken Fries again.
