La Tortilleria

La Tortilleria Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato On a Sunday afternoon, Sheepie and I went to Granville Island for a short visit. We decided to grab and bite and came upon La Tortilleria. Their menu boards were updated and replaced the chalkboards with a printed menu.

I wanted the crispy bowl of chicken and beans, but Sheepie wanted a burrito, so we had that instead. There was a ‘mock-up’ of the dish, and the first thing that Sheepie said when our dish was served was ‘hey, that looks much smaller than the what they had.’

It was all very mellow, except for a very small hint of cilantro in the salsa. There were a lot of ‘water’ and the sauce was diluted, and the burrito was sitting in a puddle getting soaked. The price is high for what you get, though I understand it’s Granville Island.

Thai Eleven on Granville Island

Thai Eleven on UrbanspoonWe were pressed for time to see a play at the Arts Club, so we went to the food court to grab something quick. I went to Thai Eleven and got a 2 item for $6.99. The to-go container is somewhat small for the price. The staff are angry (or just seems to be angry) Chinese that aren’t friendly at all. I asked for the Pad Thai and one chicken skewer. The noodles were dry and bland, so the juice from the chicken helped. The chicken was flavourful and juicy. However, I would not ever return if it were not on Granville Island. It’s a lot more expensive than getting something similar (for fast food) in other mall food courts, but I guess the rent there must be pretty pricey. Despite the cost and taste, it was super busy on a nice Saturday afternoon.

Would not return.

Granville Island Gelato and Coffee House

GI Gelato & Coffee House on UrbanspoonAfter coming back from a vacation in Italy, and eating a lot of real authentic gelato, I was craving for some while we were at Granville Island.

The place had a line up, and I decided to get a coconut gelato.

  • small was $3.95
  • medium $5.57
  • large $6.62
  • plus in a waffle costs an extra 50 cents!

It was expensive after paying only €1.10 to €2 ($1.70 – $3 CDN) for an authentic one in Italy. It was good indeed, but pricey. But I guess that’s because I’m comparing it to Italy and not in Vancouver.
