I've been asked to provide reccs for a church group dinner to be attended by 10-15 adults and senior high (& hungry) teens. So quantity and value are the priorities here but as long as I'm in the equation I'm not gonna overlook quality :-) Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Indian AYCEs have all been mentioned but this group is pretty adventurous and I think they'd be happy trying something a bit off the b(eaten) path.
On the topic of AYCE, it goes to show how limited Vancouver is in that regard.
So I'm turning my attention towards SE Asian like Filipino but I can't think of a Filipino AYCE resto, if there even is one.
And if no AYCEs, any good reccs for Filipino restos that are commodious, quick & efficient service, good value (larger portions/low-mid pricing) ? Location is not a factor, they'll all be driving or driven to the restaurant of choice (but I guess easy parking would be a bonus).
