9th Avenue Grill on Broadway

Hungry and standing on the corner of Granville and Broadway. Still, decided to bypass “bigger” places like Cactus, Earl’s, O-Thai, and Bogart’s to walked further down to 9th Avenue Grill for lunch. It’s a little grill/cafe place (seats about 35 people) just west of Burrard. They have all day breakfast and quite a big, diverse menu (omelets, benny’s, sandwiches, wraps, burgers, panini’s, salads, soup).

Mango Chicken Panini: This was pretty good panini, with chicken chunks, bacon, and bits of mango inside. The mango salsa and cheese was juiiicy, but it didn’t make the bread soggy, which was good. The focaccia was really nice- thick and with a crispy crust.

Spinach salad with chicken: This was a pretty decent salad. There was a lot of mushrooms, but not that much chicken. The kiwi-mandarin dressing was only slightly sweet – actually a bit sour for my taste.

The service here is great and very friendly. The food is fresh, there are many options on the menu (even for those low-carbers). The portion sizes are quite big, and you don’t have to wait too long. They seem to be able to accomodate your special requests pretty well too. The only thing is that they don’t have free refills for the pop. Also, the place is quite small, and can get a bit crampy when busy, so probably not the best place for a romantic date… 😉  I’d definitely revisit to try other things on the menu.
