Solly's Bagelry

While visiting my friend who lives by Main street, she took me to Solly's Bagelry for some yummy bagels :)

Lots of baked goods!

Solly's Bagelry is a Jewish bakery and deli. They have three locations in Vancouver. To find out more, you can visit their website. I have been to two of the locations, the Main street one and 7th Ave one. The 7th Ave one is busy every time I go, I would say some patience is definitely required before you can enjoy your yummy bagel meals.


I had some trouble trying to figure out what I wanted to order from the menu boards. I find it a little confusing, so finally I just told them I wanted a veggie bagel without onions.

My bagel, love it :) (it's toasted sesame bagel with hummus, tomato, avocado, and alfalfa sprouts) It also comes with a small bag of chips and a pickle.

On my way out I got half a dozen of their famous cinnamon buns to go!

Cinnamon Buns (no cream cheese icing added)

Some of my friends thought the cinnamon bun was a bit too sweet, but I thought it was just right. Next time though, I would like to try it with the cream cheese icing :)

Panz Veggie Restaurant (updated)

*update is after the original post
--original post--
This is another post I should have gotten to long ago :P Panz Veggie Restaurant is one of the vegetarian Chinese restaurants in Vancouver. My friends have told me about it when it first opened up but it took me a while to finally go and try it out. Having said that, that happened a long time ago too and I can't really remember when exactly it was, could have been early last year or even longer ago... I know I know... but I think I should still get it up because I want to get as much posts on vegetarian restaurants in Vancouver up as possible.

A table for 4


Brown Rice

Soup - (sorry can't remember if the soup came with the meal or we ordered that separately...)

I think this is the 'Laughing Tiger' on the menu.

Deep Fried Wonton

Sorry I don't remember the names of the other two dishes, this one is with cabbage and the other one with mushroom

Overall we thought the food was decent and service was good even though there was just one server and the owner when we were there. Only thing was that we didn't feel like we had enough food between the 4 of us, 2 guys and 2 girls. We thought the portions were just okay, but I guess we could have just ordered more. Hopefully we'll get a chance to go back there again soon.

--July 20, 2012 Update --

Got a chance to visit Panz again with my old coworkers a few weeks back. I was looking at their lunch menu online ( and thought it would be nice to try it out since it looks like a good dea. Everyone was on board with a veggie lunch so off we went. They have the lunch menu printed on a piece of paper. I'm not sure if it changes everyday or if they're the same as the ones they have online, but I think they're close enough anyways. We ordered 4 different kinds out of the 5 of us, since I wanted the same thing as one of my firneds. I missed the picture of the Buddha's Feast one of us ordered. It's stir fried veggies since he can't have anything gluten, it was the choice he went with. He said he really liked it. 

Double Wok with steamed rice

I think this is Satay Glutens(or bean curds)... I don't remember the exact name of it, sorry.

This is my Tangy Sweet and Sour Soya Ribs 

I liked my dish a lot too, my craving for sweet and sour was fulfilled. The friend who ordered the same thing thought the sauce was too sweet but it went well with the chow mein. The owner came to asked if we enjoyed our meals and even offered us more chow mein or more steamed rice for free. So the friend got one more portion of chow mein and finished up all his sweet and sour sauce :) It was very nice of the owner. We'll definitely come back again for lunch sometimes.
