Restaurants in Vancouver
Vancouver is a foodie’s paradise. The city’s culinary scene is second-to-none, and Vancouver restaurants are so numerous and consistently high quality that it’s easy to find delicious food at a variety of price-points. Seafood and Asian cuisine are a particular point of pride, and it’s possible to find restaurants in Vancouver that serve fresh fish – be it cooked, or served raw – at prices that won’t break the bank.
Seafood lovers visiting the city should be sure to dine at the Raincity Grill. Considered to be one of the best restaurants in Vancouver for shellfish, the restaurant serves up locally sourced (and affordable) dinner tasting menu, along with a more casual brunch. Don’t leave without trying the crab omelet.
Among a long list of superb Vancouver restaurants, Forage is another standout option. The establishment takes sustainability and a farm-to-table philosophy seriously, which is reflected in its local, flavorful menu that includes pork tongue ravioli and roast bison bone marrow.
Among the dim sum temples, noodle huts, and Korean barbecue joints that make up suburban Richmond’s Asian culinary scene, this one remains a local favorite. Don’t miss the mushroom dumplings and clay-pot chicken.
