Food Trip in Mount Pleasant, Vancouver: Argo Cafe

It's my fault.

When I asked my sisters to watch Food Network I never thought they'll like it. We watched an episode of You Gotta Eat Here and Therese wanted to try all the restaurants that it featured and she even made a blog post about it.

To start our "You Gotta Eat Here" food trip, we visited Argo Cafe. It's a small diner located in Ontario Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue.

First impression, the ambiance of the place is exactly that of a diner. Waitresses wearing aprons the way you would expect of a diner based on what you see on the television. It's pretty cool. Therese and I went there at lunch and there's just one available table. I'd like to think it was meant for us.

While deciding what to have, since the only thing we're certain about is the Mexican Poutine, I shared with Therese highlights of my interview few minutes before. Personally, I am uncertain on what to get but end up with the Spaghetti Carbonara. Therese, on the other hand, was dead set on Top Sirloin Steak.

Top Sirloin Steak , mash potatoes & veggies with peppercorn sauce $14.95

I tried the Sirloin Steak and it was alright. I mean, nothing extraordinary. However, those mash potatoes was so yummy! I can come back and order just the mash potatoes.

Spaghetti Carbonara, bacon , prawns, cream & egg sauce $13.95

Meanwhile, this Carbonara was so delicious. At first bite, I was trying to figure out what I am tasting but as I chew on it, it tasted great! It's not too heavy on cream and whatever amount is in there is just enough. But what I love the most about this carbonara are the shrimps. It was cooked perfectly. I wasn't able to finish my bowl so whatever I have left I gave to my mom and she liked the carbonara too.

Mexican Poutine – chicken chili con queso $10.00

Mexican Poutine is one of the dish shown in the You Gotta Eat Here episode and it was good. I mean, if you like poutine and Mexican flavors, what's not to like, right? We took a bite or so of the poutine before declaring that we are too full to finish it. Another food that we could share home to brother.

Overall, I can't wait to bring Jomar here when he comes back in Canada.
