Wendy and I had a WagJag deal for Eh! Restaurant so we decided to head down to the Alberni & Thurlow location to check it out. Prices seemed quite reasonable for this area with many entrees on the rather sparse menu under $10 before the discount.
The decor was kind of a cafe meets japanese restaurant vibe with a good mix of electro-house playing on the sound system at a reasonable volume. The staff seemed to have been plucked from the ESL school down the hall; when I ordered my main dish I had great difficulty conveying my request for a whole wheat tortilla with the waitress questioning me about whether it was a type of sauce Despite communication barriers they were very friendly however noone came around to ask if our food or drinks were ok except to warn us when the kitchen was about to close.
To start we tried the Vegetarian Spring Rolls. The shell was nicely crisp and they were twice the size of your usual spring roll. The mango chili sauce wasn’t bad, basically a sweet & sour sauce with a mild kick to it. The pickled ginger didn’t add anything to the flavour so after trying a piece of the ginger we left the rest untouched. Overall fairly satisfying but a bit steep at $7.95 considering it’s a meat free dish and when compared to the pricing for the rest of the menu.
