Jethro's Fine Grub

   I use to watch the  food network alot back in highschool with my mom LOL...especially reruns of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! So turns out Guy Fieri visited this place being the sucker that I am, I decided to make a visit after I saw a picture of their gigantic pancakes on instagram!! And no haha, we didn't end up ordering their pancakes because we knew we wouldn't be able to finish it! Their pancakes are so big they can easily feed 4 people! The place was completely packed, you have to put your name on a list and we ended up waiting outside for 20 mins!

'Gater Nuggets $14 w/ basmati rice & salad
3.5/5 stars
  My grandma had the gater nuggets because she really wanted to try alligator meat LOL!! When it came, I thought it looked really similar to Taiwanese chicken nuggets haha! The batter was very well executed, it was super airy, crunchy, and not oily at all! The meat was similar in texture to chicken! It was dusted with a light coating of spices and served with white bbq sauce on the side!

Chocolate Chip Banana  French Toast $12
2/5 stars
  This was alright, not as good as I was expecting it to be! The description made it sound amazing, but in reality, it was rather mediocre. It just tasted like a doughier, weak version of banana bread. On the up side it wasn't overly sweet! We shared this as a dessert and we couldn't finish it, so we packed most of it home!

La Nina - Corn Cake w/ Tex Mex Chilli $12
2/5 stars
  This was just okay as well - I found the hollandaise sauce to be on the weak side and not flavourful enough. The chilli was mushy, a bit spicy but rather one note. The corn cake was tasty though, it was soft, fluffy, and really moist! The salad that came on the side was fresh and crunchy, and quite large!

Here's a look at the chilli!

They also have some Mexican sauces on the tables! My grandma really liked the salsa chipotle! 

LOL at their tagline "Please Eat Responsibly!!" You could do some serious damage here ;)

  1. Guy Fieri actually ate at their first location on Dunbar. (interesting all of Triple D's videos of Vancouver restos he visited are gone from YouTube).

    Not surprised, the 'gator "taster like chicken" :-)

  2. haha I read in a few reviews that the Dunbar is "better" because its run by the original owners!

    LOL yess the gator did taste like chicken!

  3. So awesome that your grandma goes on these food adventures with you :) she's so hip

    1. LOL so hip right!? Definitely the hippest grandma I know!! ;)
      She loves going with me on my food adventures cause she loves eating at different places haha! She actually hates eating with her friends because they always insist on going for dim sum LOL.
