The Tipper.

I have been hearing many things about the Tipper, both about the food and the live shows so I had to check it out. I have been twice now and I have had a good meal both times.

They have some wicked specials on Tuesdays where you get a burger with fries and a beer for ten bucks. The fries are fresh cut, and are very tasty. My friend commented three times on how much he liked the fries. The burger was also impressive. For the price, it was a great deal. For those who don't eat red meat you can sub your burger for the chicken burger (which I prefer). Because you get a burger, fries and beer for ten bucks I thought I would order a side soup ($2.99). The seafood chowder was fantastic. I know I am not alone on this but I rarely order soup because the value sucks. A small mug of liquid with vegetables, and meat that doesn't fill you up, even when its meal size, why bother. Banyan from Seinfeld was right, a soup is not a meal. Trust me, forget about how you feel about ordering soup at restaurants and order the seafood chowder here, it is definitely worth it.

Back to the Tipper. This part of Vancouver needs a place like the Tipper and the local population needs to support this establishment. There is a large backroom where they often have live theatrical performances, and live music shows. Food wise, the Tipper offers a great value and provides a great alternative for that area. The ten dollar chicken burger, fries and beer deal is fantastic.

Dear Vancouver Slop,

Thanks for you visit and printed observations & honest words. I have been following VS for some time now and have found the posts to be quite fun, and to the point.

Just saying -Even better - The Burger & Pint deal runs both Saturday and Tuesdays every week.

The Tipper listens to customers, reads reviews and cares!

Thanks again

The Tipper is absolutely great. Thanks for writing about it VS, it deserves your press:)
The first place my bf and I ate out at when we moved to the South Trout Lake area/Nanaimo Skytrain area in August was The Tipper. Colin-owner and chef and now-friend-was so welcoming and kind, introducing us to his joint with a free plate of yam fries and cajun mayo (if my memory serves me correctly on the dip). They were needless to say delicious.
I am also a big fan of the seafood chowder (had some for dinner tonight in fact). They serve great coffee as well and their breakfasts are solid. Their Green Eggs & ? (add your own meat) was what I ordered for my birthday brunch back on October and they were healthy, light, and affordable. Their Penne Tip Pasta is excellent as well for a more filling supper option.
I only hope that one day they will include eggs benedict in their breakfast menu. Otherwise, I love the welcoming atmosphere, Colin of course, all the staff, and the food. I'll be back, of course.
