      I got some really good stuff on Granville Island, I wish I could remember the name of the place, it was in the Maritime Market section across from G.I. Brewery

        Noodle Box is a glorified food court restaurant. Sure it is nice and clean in there and the food looks fresh, but it's not that good. For a good noodle bowl I would head to ShaLin Noodles or Kintaro Ramen. Last time I was at NB I got a bowl full of greasy, over cooked rubbery noodles + all the msg my body needed for a year.....

      2. Go to Cornwall in Kitts and check out Rocky Mountain Flatbread and the new Taco joint next door (next to Veras). The tortillas are hand made and the food rocks. Next head over to Granville Market and buy everything Oyama Sausage has to sell. When you are feeling peckish later on, walk a few blocks to the Government wharf and get some fish & chips from Go Fish, Gords latest Opus.
        There is another good Mexican themed restaurant with nice atmosphere on Davie just after the strip ends about halfway to Denman, can't remember the name, food is excellent.
        Opening soon on ARBUTUS is the FINEST AT SEA store. They own their own boats, are ethical, and have great pacific North West Seafood.
        And remember, friends don't friends go to Memphis Blues.

          Thank you for the info. I have been to Oyama many a times...basically every time I'm back in Vancouver...most of the stuff is. v. good. Any more info. on the seafood store on Arbutus??? A while back I read an article that the daughter of Matsqueam chief was opeing her own seafood store somewhere in Kits. Could this be the same thing?

          1. re: Pollo

            The fish store you're thinking of is on Dunbar street somewhere around 28th. I can't think of its name.

        2. Finest at Sea is a Victoria company that has no association with the Musqueam.

          There is no new seafood store anywhere in this 'hood.

            I spoke to the owner of the company yesterday, and he assured me they are opening this month.
