food is better than our website

Hey Mike,

Agreed. One of the few restaurants in Vancouver where the food is better than the web site.

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Your note actually hurt on first read since we love our neighbourhood and are not here to take advantage of our friends, our approach is "feed your friends"

So you know, All can find our offer in the entertainment book and a 2 for 1 in the Georgia Straight for those with tighter budgets.

Further, we are committed to this neighbourhood and 15 of the 17 people we employ live within walking distance, plus choose to keep the purchasing dollars within east van too. Which we know chain restaurnats are not interested in anyone as a person, just profits.

Please consider chain Purchasing power, and portion sizes too. Independents pay 10-30% more for the same ingredients from suppliers. We use a 6oz cut of wild salmon. Chains tend to use a 4oz or even less.

Agreed competition is healthy for everyone... not sure if the operators of xxxxy has many of the positive living practices we offer as a community spot. or have they lived out of trunk of their car for a year or squatted on a pal's boat for 3yrs to earn the business we chose to be in. Truthfully with all the support groups we host, the Tipper actually operates at a loss and have made $0.00 profit to date.

Lots of words here due to the passion for the business, and our neighbourhood.

Thank you again and I hope to hear from you or say hello during your next visit if you choose to.

Colin Shandler
The TIpper
