Maenam Thai Restaurant Vancouver Kitsilano is one of my favorite Thai restaurants. Not only has it won multiple awards and accolades, Chef Angus An also worked for internationally renowned Chef David Thompson at Nahm. Nham was the first Thai restaurant in the world that received a Michelin star.
I love the bright flavors and intensity of Thai cuisine. I like that Maenam hasn’t damped those and adapted to a more Western palate. I love the use of cilantro, limes and chilies. I love the heat, the acidity and the sweet and sour relationships.
Pad Thai 15: Classic pad thai with fresh rice noodles, tamarind, peanuts, tofu, egg, sustainable prawns. This dish can be vegetarian. Ask for chilies on the side if you are unsure of your heat tolerance.
Grilled Thai Sausage and Crispy Rice Salad 12: yam namm – grilled house fermented thai sausage with garlic and chilies served with curried rice puffs, lemongrass and shallots. We first saw this dish on Munchies and knew we had to have it.
Stir Fried Water Spinach with Crispy Pork Belly 17: pan boon fai dang – light stir fry of this popular snappy Asian greens, with fermented soy bean and fried garlic. This dish was slightly salty and has a punch of heat.
The waitress suggested we ordered rice despite having Pad Thai noodles. Our thoughts was we really didn’t need. We barely touched it and had much leftovers. We would suggest holding off until all the food comes (unless you have a curry going!)
Chef Angus An other restaurants include Fat Mao Noodle Bar and Longtail Kitchen in New Westminster.

AnnaLena in Kitsilano, Vancouver recently opened for 3 months and high on our radar. We are not only excited because it is opened by former chef of The Oakwood, Mike Robbins but also Jeff Parr also formerly of The Oakwood and Chambar. AnnaLena is named […]
Au Comptior in Kitsilano seems to be all the craze lately. Brunch avec Paree style is a must. Choose to start with a cafe au lait and a pain au chocolate to slowly start your day like there’s nothing on the agenda.
Whether Au Comptior is the ‘real deal’ of an authentic Parisian cafe is debatable. Depending the time of day you may find the garcon de cafe to be either warm, friendly and attentive or borderline rude. You ask for hot sauce and you may hear ‘this is a French restaurant, we don’t have hot sauce’!
The interior is Instagram worthy with the deepest blue leather seats, long bar seats, distressed tiles and a rotating glass display nudging you with exquisite desserts. But little round tables are crowded and slightly uncomfortable especially when you have a party of four trying to share plates.
But let’s talk food. Le Brunch in particular. Food here is well portioned and rich. “How do French women stay skinny?” comes to mind. I remember reading, if you are thinking of order dessert after a full meal with wine. Your dessert should just be your glass of wine.
Anyways, we ordered and shared the following.
MANCHONS DE CANARD FRITS 10: half-dozen crispy fried duck wings. Lightly breaded duck confit wings are tender and fall off the bones.
ASSIETTE DE CHARCUTERIE 18: house and artisan cured meats and pate served with bread and gerkhins
ASSIETTE DE FROMAGES 7: three cheeses with a variety of creamy blue, brie and a sharp cheddar aged from France.
CONFIT DE CANARD EN SALADE ET SON OEUF POCHÉ 16: Shredded duck confit, potato, asparagus, frisée, poached eggs, hazelnut vinaigrette.
BURGER MAISON FRITES 16: house ground beef, onion jam, raclette. We were asked with we wanted to add foie gras for $6. We weren’t sure where the foie was added. Perhaps mixed in the patty or spread a top. Nonetheless, the burger had a juicy patty and pretty tasty.
ASSIETTE AU COMPTOIR 16: eggs cocotte, house-made sausage, bacon, country bread, potato rösti. This was perhaps our least favorite dish of the afternoon. There was nothing special to the eggs or the salty sausage.
I’m excited that Au Comptoir now opened in the Kitsilano neighborhood. West 4th isn’t saturated with French bistros and after a heavy brunch you can go shopping and walk it off.
Au Comptoir is opened by Maxime Bettili and Julien Aubin. The two had previoused cafes and brasseries in France. In Vancouver they had worked at some Vancouver favorite restaurants like Les Faux Bourgeois, Bistro Pastis, Jules Bistro, and The Acorn.

Ramen Danbo is a new Japanese ramen noodle restaurant that took over the space from Zakkushi Kitsilano on 1833 W 4th Avenue. Seems like the ramen craze hasn’t slowed down one bit in Vancouver. Some recent ramen noodle shops like Jinya Ramen in Kerrisdale, Ramen Butcher in Chinatown and now Ramen Danbo in Kitsilano are popping up like spring bunnies. Goodbye, Kintaro (you were never good anyways!) I think I will add Ramen Danbo to my list of best ramen noodles in Vancouver.
Now, it is about regional style and thinner noodles. Kaedama (extra noodles) is an extra option to satisfy your hunger if the bowl is not big enough or if you just want to soak up more umami broth.
Ramen Danbo, brings traditional Fukuoka-style Kyushu Hakata Tonkotsu ramen to Japanese food fans in Vancouver. We liked the aroma of their our signature Tonkotsu broth. It is solid with a rich umami savory taste. They say on their website it is always made daily in-house with specially treated water, free from impurities. Vancouver’s finest water!
We like how you can choose your noodle firmness, broth thickness, and spiciness level (5x, 10x and 15x).
Classic Tonkotsu Ramen 9.45: Signature Tonkotsu Pork Broth. Pretty solid broth. The cha shu was tender and not overly fatty. Add a soft boiled ni-tamago flavoured with soy sauce egg for 1.50.
Blazing Hot Rekka Ramen 10.45: Five times the spiciness of the classic Tonkotsu Pork Broth made with Ichimi Togarashi red pepper imported from Japan. We liked the extra heat without overpowering the pork bone broth base. We added an ajitama egg also. The onsen egg was slightly over cooked.
Pan-fried Yaki Gyoza 4.75: Crispy skin. A moist crispy pork and scallion dumplings.
We’re pretty happy with Ramen Danbo and would definitely return. Remember to get the stamp card. One stamp per ramen ordered.
