I have eaten at both the Reef and Riddim and Spice and growing up in a Jamaican home I can say that Riddim and Spice far surpasses the Reef in taste, flavor, serving and the cost of a meal. The only thing that the Reef would have on Riddim and Spice is the atmosphere as Riddim and Spice is very... More

there wasn't anything awful about the goat curry, but it wasn't great. oily and fatty, nice spicing but it left me feeling greasy. the salad side was ok, some lettuce a bit browner that i would serve, passable dressing. just meh.

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighbourhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
