Vancouver’s dining scene is famous for fresh seafood, top Asian cuisine and a wealth of locally sourced fare (the 100 Mile Diet – eating only what can be raised within a 100-mile radius – was invented right here).
Indulge your tastebuds with West Coast cuisine at West on South Granville Street, or book a table at Yaletown seafood hot spot Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar.
For legendary sushi, grab a seat at Tojo’s and ask chef Hidekazu Tojo for “Omakase” (meaning “to entrust”); watch the chef create a special meal based on the day’s freshest local ingredients.
Chinese food is serious business in a city where a third of the population can claim Asian roots. Kirin Restaurant and Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant are top Vancouver choices, or enjoy a taste of Hong Kong cuisine in Richmond, the heart of BC’s Asian food scene.
For cheap eats, head to Go Fish (near Granville Island) for a salmon tacone, or sample some global street food from a downtown food cart. Top picks include the Korean short rib tacos at the Roaming Dragon and the pulled pork sandwiches at Re-Up BBQ.
