I’d had the place staked out for a while, doing the slow drive-by surveillance every now and then for any sign of movement. Nothing for weeks. And then, suddenly, one Saturday afternoon, it happened. The sign was up. The door was open. Transylvania Flavour was in business. I contacted my strike team and gave them the green light. Go!Go!Go!

We hit the place on a quiet Thursday night. There were seven of us – seven self-proclaimed schnitzel aficionados on a search for the perfect Vienna style cutlet. To date, our quest had taken us all over the city, from the folky German charm of the Vancouver Alpen Club to the Hungarian down hominess of The Budapest – and finally landed us at the doorstep of the newest schnitzel contender: Transylvania Flavour on West Broadway. Just one tiny problem. There was no schnitzel on the menu. Well, not on the dinner menu anyway. Perhaps sensing our disappointment, our waiter suggested we might like to give the Chicken Supreme a go. Or maybe the Steak Frites. Chicken Supreme? Steak Frites? Had I unwittingly stumbled into one of these “mixed menu” eateries? A touch of French? A smidgeon of Eastern European? Perhaps some egg rolls to go with my kielbasa?

I was facing a simmering revolt from my carnivorous fellow diners who had already started grousing over the possibility they would have to settle for the veggie stack or walnut-stuffed trout (all, no doubt, excellent dishes but not quite what we had expected coming in). Fortunately, our waiter returned with the good news. Although the schnitzel is usually only available on the lunch menu, the chef would be able to accommodate our special request on this night.

And so, much relieved, we kicked back, ordered a few beers, and started things off with the Knight’s Platter, an enormous dish of kielbasa, kebabs, roasted veggies, glazed beets, house chipped potatoes, mini meatballs, house salad, and tasty mixed olives. All of it great. Also included were some crisp mamaliga – parmesan and polenta balls served with sour cream and red pepper sauce, and rakot krumpli – a hearty sausage, potato, and sour cream casserole. We followed that with what our waiter termed a more “northern Ukranian” version of perogies, the hearty dumplings stuffed with yam and smoked Gouda, and accompanied by the requisite sour cream. The mititei – Transylvanian sausages based on an old family recipe – were some of the best sausages I’ve ever had. A plate of homemade cabbage rolls and sauerkraut did not disappoint either. And, finally, two kinds of schnitzel – chicken and pork – the atypically thick yet tender portions of meat served atop a bed of excellent mashed potatoes and glazed beets. The pork schnitzel, by the way, is without a doubt the best in the city.

When the dust finally settled, we were all mightily impressed. And stuffed. Still, we did manage to make room for dessert: a neutron star dense chocolate cake and some delightfully downhome Transylvanian doughnuts.

Overall, a terrific meal with some truly stand-out menu items. Service was great (at one point, our mashed potatoes were whisked away and returned after being reheated in the oven). The place has only been open a month or so, clearly, the owners are still trying to get a feel for what works and what doesn’t. In my opinion, what really works are the traditional East European dishes like the sausage, the perogies, the schnitzel and, on a return visit, the special house tripe soup which proved a wonderfully hearty/buttery/garlicky creation. And it’s nice to see they’re welcoming input.

Since our last visit, they’ve moved the schnitzel to the dinner menu. But I also hear they’ve made a change in the kitchen as well, so it’ll be interesting to see how that effects the menu. Hopefully not too much.

All in all, another successful op.

Back in the office today and we broke the JF story today. More on it, some snaps from Kindred II, and the mailbag tomorrow.

Probably.

  1. I’m very excited/anxious about the JF back story. After so many years, the expectation on this plot line are going to be high and no doubt its going to be hard to please everyone (but what eppy does). lol

    It’s even cooler than Mr Flanigan is the one that urged you guys with the idea and hopefully while vague, his original thoughts will still be in tact.

    It does make me wonder if he had not approached you with this plot, would we have gotten any Sheppard back story at all this season?

    Thank you for sharing all your insight into these processes, its very cool to have these fly on the wall views.

  2. hi, joe,

    you said: “Back in the office today and we broke the JF story today. More on it, some snaps from Kindred II, and the mailbag tomorrow.

    Probably.”

    i hope you continue to do the mailbag! i’d ask more questions, but they’re always sam or s/j ship related and you’ve already said why you can’t answer them. :p :p

    but i LOVE when you post pics from the set! and i didn’t say so before, but i appreciated the sam’s office layout pic. i saved it in fact. (more because it said carter’s office :p)

    take care,
    sally 🙂

  3. Hi Joe,

    Whenever you “break” a story, does that mean you’ve started it, or you’ve broken its metaphoric back and get a rush of ideas and it’s less uphill? Also, are there going to be any more huge stuff-ups ala Rodney in ‘Trinity’ this season?

    Many thanks. Keep up the great work.

  4. Any chance this midway station has something to do with stargate universe?

    Cause from reading a little bit about it, sounds like its been inclosed which gives me lots of deep space nine thoughts.

  5. Wow…sounds so good! As a Ukranian child, I’m always on the lookout for places that serve good perogies! Kudos for mentioning the sour cream, of course, because that is an essential part to eating the delicous dumplings! And of course, looking forward to the back story!

  6. Reading your blog always makes me so hungry!

    What I’d like to know is, when are we going to get a canonically gay character in the Stargate universe? Atlantis is a diverse, multicultural place, and while gays in the military is a hot button issue, there’s nothing that says that one of the civvies can’t bat for the other team. Atlantis is already touted as the first mainstream American sci-fi show to show an on-screen gay kiss (male/male, anyway) so why not take it to the next level and endear yourselves to the LGBT community even more?

  7. Oh my!! The food looks awesome!! Great now I have this uncontrable urge to raid my pantry!! LOL

  8. …and I finally got around to buying The Lies of Locke Lamora. So many books, so little time…

  9. of course I love to see pictures of the set, but what I’d really love to see are more puppy pics!!

  10. I actually had this one yesterday, but then posted something else. But I remembered it tonight! (I wrote it down, yes, I am sad). On the SciFi website, for Sheppard’s character it describes him as “the son of a respected Cold War colonel”. In the upcoming Sheppard-on-Earth storyline, might we learn anything about said father (ie: dead, alive, disowned) or is that something initially thought of that doesn’t fit the character anymore? Or does it pertain to “reason you don’t answer” #6?

  11. Like others, am really looking forward to the Sheppard backstory episode!

    Anyway, since it’s bandied about on some other forums I’ll be the one to jump forward and ask: Has Rachel had her baby yet?

  12. Hi Joe, the kitty again 🙂

    one little question(I know I know it might be a dead topic but what the hey?) I hear(and am confused a bit) that Rachel has a new member of the family? give her hug from me if you get the chance! 🙂

    Ok so i’m a trillion skillion miles away in anothe galaxy and the Teyla over here already had her child, a full blooded Ancient too 🙂 Atlantis(the city itself) likes the baby more then John, poor guy

    anyhow my family is thinking of a good place to see the sunset, got any ideas of nice(read cheap) hotels in the area?

    ~Teyilia
    The kitty in Teylas sock drawer.

    PS: whe nyou say “broken”, how many pieces?

  13. Bwahahahaha! The hypocrites over at OS (Ongoing Sulking forum) are carrying on like they’re some oppressed innocents. Apparently, their little feelings are hurt because they’re finally being called on their narrow-minded and venal posts

  14. So I just noticed something. Elizabeth in POTC had a rather tragic ending to her love story. Now Elizabeth in stargate is going out (at least for this season *hopes for a return someday!*) and for anyone who believes in Elizabeth and John being on the verge of more than friends it would appear that even should it be revealed they truly love each other it will still end tragically. Please, (haha, I know I’m crazy! 😉 ) but please, tell me all Elizabeth’s aren’t doomed to this tragic fate!

    **Disclaimer: apologies to all superstitious people, post meant to be taken lightly

  15. Hey Joe,

    Could you send me a little tidbit by ordering the main characters (Sheppard, Mckay, Ronon, Teyla, Carter and Keller) in terms of most whumped in s4? Thanks 🙂

  16. Gherkins! I see gherkins! I was just eating my gherkins straight from the jar. My New Zealand flatmate thinks it’s gross (she eats her olives out of th jar) but my Texan flatmate has never heard the word gherkin before. “Gherkins? Like merkins? Oooh… you mean pickles?”

    What do you call them?

  17. FYI – Some highschoolers have put together a parody blog of your blog. It’s basically three jokes repeating endlessly and a bunch of cheap shots at you and some of your regular posters.

  19. Hi Joe!

    I really enoyed reading your latest food review, and wondered, does Vancouver have a particularly large number of restaurants? It seems it does and the menus appear extremely diverse. Wish I could say the same for where I live!

    I’m very excited that we may learn, well, probably I think your exact word was, about the JF Sheppard backstory episode in tomorrow’s blog. I, for one, am really pleased and relieved it’s going ahead, and look forward to anything you can share with us.

  20. Hi, Joe.

    I see the SaveDanielJackson site:

    http://savedanieljackson.com/

    has deleted the link to Stargate Solutions on their main page and replaced it with a link to the Stargatefan site:

    http://www.stargatefan.com/

    I know that faction had splintered into separate groups, but this is the first time where I’ve seen one group completely disassociate themselves from the others.

    Good work, Joe.

  21. That link to the chocolate news didn’t work…here’s one:
    http://www.chowhound.com/topics/387709

    After reading about this issue I am feeling like an chocoholic philistine.

    I guess I am not supposed to like Hershey’s and I do. I love Dove’s dark chocolate..not sure if that is good or bad.

    Ok…obviously I am a chocolate troglodyte and I need some help. Can you please recommend some chocolate for my unrefined palate? (so I may become refined) 😉

  22. Joe, don’t let these people make you backstep!! Have Elizabeth Weir have a tragic demise. Something incredibly. Such as… she has an amazing recovery only to spontaniousy combust. Or she trips and falls into the kawoosh as she’s going to visit her folks!

    Anyways awesome job knocking the dead weight out of atlantis.

    P.S. I don’t hate scottish people just doctors.

    What about everyone else who isn’t represented from various races to religious groups ? Gays show up in American tv and movies much more than most minorities. They are better represented than most countries or racial groups. People can easily believe a sexual relationship exists whether it is canon or not. But a character is or isn’t French or Japanese..

  24. Oh.. an addendum to my last post. I have nothing against Torri Higginson I think she’s awesome In Storm of the Century and The Outer Limits I just felt the Weir characters was played out 😛

    P.S. Joe, Honestly how do you stay so thin when all I see on your blog is food? I gained 10 pounds just reading it.

  25. I just saw the Comicon Atlantis panel and awwww…you were so cute and sweet!
    Ok…is that the real you???
    Or do you belong to the snarky darkside?
    Martin was very sweet too! Like an adorable teddy bear.
    BTW these ARE compliments!!!

  26. I’d have liked to see this ‘neutron star dense chocolate cake’…did it have its own gravitational pull?
    BTW, I’m Ukrainian and I think those pirogies were a bit too roasty, fryY or whatever^^
    Thanks for your weekly food critics!

  27. Strange they didn’t have shnitzel on the dinner menu to begin with..

    But enough shnitzelspeak, I’m flying out to Kansas City this weekend and am greatly anticipating some o’ dat famous KC BBQ, more specifically a hearty heart-stopping pulled meat sandwich with the best baked beans ‘dis side of da miss-‘ssippi!

    One of the few pleasures outside of CA =/.

  28. I think this settles it. I could never live in Vancouver without becoming enormously fat. Oh, those meals look delicious! (Well, except for the evil red pepper.)

  29. Bwahahahaha! The hypocrites over at OS (Ongoing Sulking forum) are carrying on like they’re some oppressed innocents. Apparently, their little feelings are hurt because they’re finally being called on their narrow-minded and venal posts

    Oh sheezh, please, give it a rest. Anybody can visit that site and they don’t care at all. So why should any of us? Move on, people!

  30. Joe – Glad you’re liking the George R.R. Martin books – I think they’re fantastic and can’t wait for the next one. That’s my problem..there are so many great books that it seems like I’m always waiting (much like when you guys decide to take a break in between seasons…sheesh!).

    Could you offer a suggestion for something that you enjoyed that is either a finished series..or something, for lack of a better term, self contained in one book.

    Thanks Joe!

  31. Hi Joe,

    Sorry if this has already been asked but is there any news about Daniel guest staring in Atlantis, season 4? Cheers!

  32. Vyer nice pictures of the food! It sounds like you had an excellent dining experience.

    What’s the worst dining experience you’ve had?

  33. Morjana said: “Has deleted the link to Stargate Solutions on their main page and replaced it with a link to the Stargatefan site:” “Good work, Joe”

    I’m a little confused. Why would you say good work Joe? Joe has dealt with Stargate Solutions and has always had a lot of respect for them. Joe has been involved with their site answering questions along with other things. I lurk all the time at Solutions and it is a very nice site. Their is absolutely no actor bashing on that site either.

    I hope that you’re not insinuating that Joe would deliberately cause problems for a fan site. Are you suggesting that Joe would stoop that low? Joe is an Executive Producer not some kid with too much time on his hands – or should I say older woman.

    What you said on the Sam/Jack ship thread was bad enough. Please don’t come over to Joe’s blog and give the Sam/Jack shippers a bad name.

  34. I’m very sorry Joe, I usually don’t try to respond to other commenters, but I have to this one time:

    Fia, with all due respect you have a couple of ideas incorrect. Atlantis is NOT the first American sci-fi show to show a same sex kiss: that was Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It had TWO episodes which involved same sex kisses: the episode ‘Rejoined’ in season 4 (Dax and a former spouse, now both symbiots inside women) and the episode ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ in season 7 (mirror universe Kira and Dax in a passionate moment)

    As for the kiss you are talking about in Atlantis, while the characters involved were both male, please remember that one was being controlled by a female in his mind. Not really a ‘gay’ kiss given the circumstances.

    I am not opposed to seeing a character who is gay in any series. I just want it to be someone who the writers decided from the very beginging to be gay and not somethng that they suddenly decide to ‘turn’ a character into for the ratings/publicity. In my opinion, that only cheepens everything about the character, the situation, and the show.

  35. Hi Joe,

    Well it was nice while it lasted. Two days? I didn’t realize that you didn’t like Solutions either *sigh* (at least according to morjana’s post).

    I just stopped by to ask the same question that I asked yesterday. I was just wondering if Sam’s lab/Daniel’s office was still standing or if it had been torn down?

    Thanks Joe

    Gee, anonymous, the term ‘brown-noser’ comes to mind.

    Let people have their fun, for crying out loud.

  37. Got your piccie in the mail the other day, yay! Thank-you again for signing it! (I’m peeved at the postal service, though — they bent it! But I think it won’t be noticable once I get it behind glass.)

    The food looks especially yummy today! 🙂 I envy you being able to sample all this suff all the time.

    I’m almost kind of dreading the Food and Wine Festival at Disney World’s (Florida, not California) Epcot this year: though portions are pretty small (at about $3-$4 a dish, too, ow!), I still need to watch myself now. (Stupid diabetes!) I hope the Ireland booth has *both* the potato-leek soup *and* the Guiness stew this year, like they used to, instead of either-or! And that England finally has the raisin scones with black currant cream butter (yum!!!)back. Canada usually has a tasty cheddar & bacon soup — I like dipping fries from the McDonalds stand nearby in it, heh. (Oh, wait, guess I won’t be able to do that this year either. Stupid carbs.) Not supposed to really drink alchohol anymore (oh, how I miss the Woodpecker and Strongbow amber hard ciders!!), but maybe I’ll still have the iced green tea with plum wine — that was really good last year! (I just won’t be able to have more than a few sips, I guess …) They usualy have pretty good pierogies, too (well, not that I have them often enough in general to be able to judge what’s good or great).

    Then again, the festival keeps going downhill in selection and quality every year, so maybe there won’t be much I want this year anyway, heh. At least with my folks working for the Mouse, I don’t have to pay to get into the park! I’d probably like it a lot less, then! 😉 …

    Looking forward to the Kindred pics! *G*

  38. @ becky s ~ I get your point, but why would it have to be a case of “suddenly turning gay”? a character could turn out to have been *BI* all along, and just not touted the fact for fear of repercussions until they decided they cared enough about someone of the same sex to take a risk.

    Sorry, it just seems to me in so many stories, a person who seems straight and dated the opposite sex exclusively always turns out to be gay when they meet someone of the same sex that they like, when being bi makes more sense in that scenario. It’s as if “gay or straight” are the only acknowledged choices. (Of course the fact that I am bi myself has nothing to do with that complaint. Nor does my liking the concept of McShep, which I harbour no illusions about ever happening in canon. Nosireebob. *cough* ;))

  39. Joe, the fan politics on this board are both highly amusing and horrifying but not too surprising. The gals doing the mockumentary site should have a ton of fodder from today’s comments 😉

    Meanwhile, a real question: don’t you guys have a commissary or meal wagon or something at the studio? Can you take pictures of that food? Surely it can’t be all that horrifying 😉

  40. Please don’t come over to Joe’s blog and give the Sam/Jack shippers a bad name.

    lets not deflect the point here. morjana is right on the ball. there’s an extremist faction within SDJ and they are nuttier than chipmunk poo. Like some kinda weird holy crusade for them: pro (their version of) daniel/michael shanks and anti EVERYTHING else. sam/jack shippers, ba’al/ball shippers, cam/noodle shippers, none of them have anything to do with the fact that those extremist folks are WACKO. They give ALL fans a bad rap.

  41. After reading all the above posts my head hurts.

    So I will just say “hello”.

    and

    Any Dalmatian restaurants in Vancouver you maybe heard of??

    (from above post) – do you eat dogs in Canada? Sorry – couldn’t resist that.

  42. I think I may have to give up reading your blog.

    And yes it does give Sam/Jack shippers a bad name when another Sam/Jack shipper is still bitter from something that happened years ago. GROW UP ALREADY!!!

  44. To come into Joe’s blog and insinuate that Joe is somehow responsible for the removal of Solutions name from the SDJ site is insulting.

    awww the poor little anti(everything but daniel) is having a wittow tantrum. fall down go boom? someone bent your woookie? here. suck on this:

    to be accurate, __you__ came in here and made the derogatory correlation between Joe and the website in question.

    morjana was thanking Joe for hanging a lantern on the ludicrous insanity that some members of the extremist portion of SDJ have exhibited over the years which (in her opinion) was a partial catalyst for recent events.

    the very fact that there are people like you coming in and twisting her compliment into an entirely manufactured affront against anyone’s integrity is proof enough that zealotism continues to thrive in that particular plot of SDJ loony-land.

    notice i’ve never once mentioned the word “solutions” (until now)? you have: twice. if you want to align that particular website with the insane extremist among the former SDJ camp, then …….. hey, it’s your funeral. but don’t drop your barrel of pony poo on top of the rest of us.

  45. Joe,

    If I may.

    To the casual observer who comes to your blog reads your posts, comments made, and your replies to these would come to the same conclusion that Morjana commented on. I would too.

    While Solutions posted the link to SDJ, it could appear to some that the website condoned the actions of their sister sites. The removal of the link 4 days ago may have been a signal to them that it isn’t
    buisness as usual.

    But that’s not a question I can answer, only the onwers of Solutions can.

    Thank you.

  46. *waves*

    Hiya Joe, I have no brains today, and as my memory also appears to be fading fast, I wanted to get this question out before I lost the plot altogether.

    Is Chris Heyerdahl making an appearance in Reunion (as the CG Wraith), as well as appearing in The Seer, and BAMSR? *keeps fingers and toes crossed it’s a yes* 😀

    And can I just *squee* a lil bit please at you breaking the JF story? 😉 *does her happy dance*

    Oh by the way a few of us were wondering. What do you mean when you say that you ‘broke the story’? Do you mean you’ve compartmentalised the acts and scenes? Or does it mean that you’ve now got a firm outline of how you want to tell the story, and broken it down into what each characters role will play in that story? Or… You know what? I’ve got nothing, lol. Help!!

    *hugs*

  47. *waves*

    Only me again, since you’ve not dedicated your blog to someone in a while. Can I be really cheeky and ask you to dedicate it to Linzi, who’s gone and whumped herself again. And remind her that it’s whump Shep, not self.

    Thanking you kindly Mr M, you’re a very wise and kind man. 😀

    *hugs*

    She had no right to come on Joe’s blog and point out something that is none of her business and pat Joe on the back at the same time. WTF And did you even read MY post? I am a Sam/Jack shipper and proud of it.

  50. Joe-

    Wow, well to try and cut through the drama-rama here, just posting some good news. Thanks to NBC’s official press release today on Paul’s return, more press has been popping up! Good stuff eh?

    I know lots of people are excited for those *maybe* Kindred photos posted tonight, me included!

  51. So.. is Torri really off the show permanently after season 4? *sobs* From what I heard, she is ‘recurring’ but not off completely. Is there a chance for her again in Season 5, saaaay, when Tapping leaves? *prays*

    Interesting discussion going on now about Martin Gero’s interview. Previously the regulars were complaining that AT was getting too much publicity regarding the move to Atlantis – they were all sick of everyone talking about her; didn’t like that David H. was all enthused about AT coming over. Please, talk about anything but AT/SC.

    Martin Gero (in his interview) doesn’t say that much about AT moving to Atlantis. Now the regulars are wondering *why* he isn’t talking about her? Does the fact that he talks about things other than Amanda (which is what they wanted) mean that PTB realize what a horrible mistake they’ve made with AT coming to Atlantis. They thinks it’s suspicious that he *isn’t* taking about AT. Conspiracy theories abound.

    Gotta love it. Can’t win for losing sometimes.

    Really, does it give all football players a bad name when ONE of them takes drugs? Does it give actresses a bad name when ONE of them has to go to rehab? Does it give gay people a bad name when ONE of them robs a bank?

    I think you shouldn’t be telling people to grow up if you can’t make the distinction that the behavior of one member of a group doesn’t define the whole group, not by any stretch.

  54. Since the time for previous year’s season premiere has come and gone this year, do you think the lack of feedback from fans about the first few episodes has affected how some of later stories in the season will be told/written? Or has that not been an issue in past seasons?

  55. Dearest Morjana,

    The SDJ site replaced the “Solutions” section on their home page with a “Stargatefan” section more than 2 years ago, to no one’s sorrow. I see you’re right up to date with Stargate fandom news, like the true investigative reporter you are. LOL.

  56. “…can’t even believe that I’m responding to your stupid post. Did you not read morjana’s post? She is the one that brought up Solutions saying that it had been removed from SDJ. Not the other way around. Morjana is the one that made it sound like Solutions was the one that was a bad site and thank God for Joe coming in to save the day.”

    Perhaps by request? (No matter the timing.) I didn’t see anything insulting about Morjana’s post. I’d want to disassociate from anything to do with SDJ 2.0/OS also. And if that means removing all links – including asking any linking from the other end, well, so much the better.

    suse

  57. morjana was thanking Joe for hanging a lantern on the ludicrous insanity that some members of the extremist portion of SDJ have exhibited over the years which (in her opinion) was a partial catalyst for recent events.

    And what recent events would they be? I’ve seen no “events” at all. The desire of a couple of fans to dredge up ancient history for no apparent reason is more of a non-event as far as I can see.

  58. THANK YOU!! My husband has been looking for good schnitzel since we moved here 5 years ago. There’s a place in New West called the Old Bavarian House but there are no people of Bavarian descent running it.
