Mucho Burrito on Davie

Mucho Burrito Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter having a good experience with the Broadway location and since I was craving some Mexican food, I decided to drop by the one on Davie. It was after 5pm on a weekday and it was pretty much dead empty with one guy paying at the till.


idearabbit-muchoburrito_davie1 idearabbit-muchoburrito_davie2idearabbit-muchoburrito_davie3I ordered the Taqueria Salad $9.25 with chicken, veggies, beans and toppings. The staff fired up the fan to cook some onions and green pepper over the fire, but it was cooked too short as they were pretty raw. I didn’t mind the green peppers, but the thick onions were a bit of an attack on my taste buds so I put them aside.

Since it was take-out, it was served in a clear plastic box. idearabbit-muchoburrito_davie4This time, I would have to say the flavour wasn’t a rich. The ingredients didn’t seem to blend together, and was no match for Chipotle…

Service was satisfactory but was a bit disappointed in the food this time. Perhaps it was just that time. Would give it another chance.

Body Energy Club on Davie

Body Energy Club Juice Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoI have been to this place several times to get some vitamins and supplements, though now I get them elsewhere. I’ve only been back a few times whenever Sheepie wanted to buy protein powder and supplements for his weight training and exercises.
After some extensive yoga class, I went to get a protein smoothie.
I didn’t have the impression from their store and branding that they were into organics and natural stuff, so I was pleasantly surprised to see some of those choices on their menu board.
idearabbit-bodyenergyclub_davieI got the Berry Manilow protein smooties $6.50 made from 100% real fruits; strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pomegranate-cherry juice and strawberry protein. It was fairly on the large side for me, but it was really good! The protein powder taste was subtle and not too intrusive.
The muscle built macho guys that work there can be a bit intimidating, lol. But they’re all nice, friendly people. The place is pretty small, and a bit crammed, especially since the place for the smoothie bar and the cashier lineup shares the same area, so it can get pretty crowded at busy times.
They take your phone number to keep your account. Once you have 300 points, you have $30 to use towards your next purchase.

Pho Central

Click to add a blog post for Pho Central on Zomato I had been to Pho Central when it was at the old location. It was filthy and tiny, though their pho were good. I had always walked by it and seen how full it was, so I suspected that their pho must be still good.

I met a with a friend for lunch around 1pm. It wasn’t overly busy, so it was good timing. The interior was quite spacious and nicer than most other whole in the wall pho places. In fact, this must be the best one I’ve been to in Metro Vancouver area. It has a bar on one side with blue LED lighting which gives it a modern, moody look.

idearabbit-pho_central1 idearabbit-pho_central2 idearabbit-pho_central3 idearabbit-pho_central4I ordered the Beef Ball Noodles Soup $8 (regular). I was surprised by the portion. It must be the biggest one I know. The broth wasn’t overwhelmingly salty, and the noodles and beef tasted great. We kept eating, but it seemed like the amount never shrunk. Each bowl of Pho came with a plate of sprouts, slice of lime, jalapenos and Vietnamese basil. I usually put in all the sprouts, a sprinkle of torn up basil and squeeze the lime. No extra sauces. I know most people use them, but a recent reading has taught me that the use of extra sauces aren’t authentic. I guess it’s like how California rolls aren’t authentic Japanese rolls (in fact none of the fancy rolls are). I often don’t like a lot of sauces on anything since it usually covers up the real flavour.

I love this place! I think it’s the best Pho in town – in terms of quality, quantity, price, atmosphere, location and service. Extra points for serving water in glass, and not plastic. The spoons for the noodle soups are also porcelain and not plastic.

Back for Dinner
This time I returned with Sheepie who isn’t a fan of Pho (what?! lol). Anyways, there were plenty of non-Pho dishes to order and he ended up getting the Chicken Curry. Looked spicy, but it wasn’t too hot. The chicken were super tender and really just melted in your mouth. I again ordered the Beef Ball Pho – sorry, I’m just in love with this bowl!

It was super busy this time with usually 3 groups waiting by the entrance. However there were no compromise with the food quality. Service was a bit slower, but that was expected.

My favourite Pho in Metro Vancouver!
