Kalvin's - good but be prepare to wait


Kalvin's Restaurant (松林居)

5225 Victoria Dr, Vancouver
 Kalvin's Restaurant 松林居 on Urbanspoon

Food: 3.5
Service: 2.5
Price: Fair

This is not my first time at Kalvin's restaurant, but it is my first time dining here. Well you see, the first time I came here was at least 5 or 6 years ago for a friend's birthday. We made a reservation and arrived on time, but our table was not yet ready. The waitress specifically told us which table will be ours and walked away. After 10 min. another group showed up as the people from our table were leaving. They walked up to the waitress and she told them to sit at our table. We informed her that we were here first, but she pretty much ignored us. By this time, we were hungry and angry and just left.

With the above experience in mind, once again we went to Kalvin's restaurant with a reservation for our large group of 12. This time, everything went smoothly and we were promptly seated in a rather small restaurant. We had to squeeze in at a table really meant for 10, but good things we were all good friends :).
First dish we ordered was their large pork blood (large).

Ah Beetz - worth the drive


Ah Beetz New York Pizza

2664 Gladys Avenue, Abbotsford

Ah Beetz New York Pizza on Urbanspoon

Food: 4
Service: 4.5
Price: Fair for the quality

I been meaning to check out Ah Beetz pizza for at least over a year now. The last time I went down to Abbotsford it was around lunch time. Unfortunately at that time, they did not open for lunch, but apparently now they do.

After a fun filled day at Castle Fun Park (it's more fun than you think), we decided to grab dinner, so I immediately suggested Ah Beetz.

We arrived to find a tiny restaurant with only a few tables, but no air condition (it was so hot in there).
