In Topic: Favorite eats, downtown Vancouver, BC?

24 February 2017 - 10:51 PM

Fortunately, my kids are not finicky eaters. Our philosophy has always been "eat at least one bite of what we cook, if you still think it's terrible, you can make your own dinner". Their laziness has almost always trumped their feigned disgust.

Well the best-laid plans failed on Tuesday and we didn't get a chance to eat in North Vancouver. Instead we walked up Robson and had a late dinner at Ramen Danbo. Definitely worth a visit. The Pink Pearl was fantastic, too.

Thanks again, everyone. We will be going back on the boat this summer.


Good to hear that the Pink Pearl delivered the dim sum.

I don't live in the shitty anymore, so my recommendation was based on fond memories.

Pink Pearl has always been a favourite of mine for a big room dim sum feast.

Near to downtown, at least not over a bridge.



In Topic: Tell Us How You REALLY Feel About Ocean Sunfish

Sailed past one off Cape Flattery this year in Vic-Maui less than 2 metres from the boat.  Thought it was a giant white floating garbage bag until we got close.  I had no idea they came this far north.

They didn't used to.   Something has changed, lately.  Ocean temperature, perhaps?


They make it up here during El Nino's.

I was running a gillnetter from Port Hardy down to Barkley Sound and had difficulty slaloming around them. That was 1985.

Some spots had so many it was impossible to avoid them, even going dead slow ahead.

I had a few last night. I regret engaging with our village idiot.


Don't feel too bad, you are sober now and he is still the village idiot.

In Topic: "Tunein Radio" Streaming music app

I really enjoy Accuradio.

Very few ads, and they are just for the radio.


Tune In radio is good for the more eclectic stations, like the ones that play Banda and Ranchero music for our fish taco nights.
