I'll be in town for business staying at the Sheraton wall on Burrarrd (spelling might be off..)I'm looking for:
1. a good place for drinks and appetizers
2. a good place for good pho/ noodle soups

any suggestions close by?

    Does Ramen qualify as noodle soup? You can try Kintaro Ramen on Denman, and its sister ramen place 2 doors away (chicken based stock). But it is a brisk 20 min walk from the Sheraton. You can also try Ezogiku on Robson, same direction, but about 15 min.

    Prima Taste's Laksa is a good choice, but again it is a brisk 20 min walk in the opposite direction from Denman.

    Ignore the reviews and avoid Legendary Noodles on Denman.

      Good call on Kintaro and Ezogiku.

      Bin 941 on Davie & Burrard is good and close by.

      If you like Izakaya (Japanese Tapas bars), then check my Vancouver Izakaya Crawl posting. Hapa and the 3 Guu Restaurants are good and happening.

      Not really any really good pho or even Chinese noodle houses in the Downtown core, though. I would suggest Prima Taste (Malaysian) for Laksa. Perhaps Shanghai Chinese Bistro, Kirin, or Imperial. None of them are true noodle houses, though.

      Definitely avoid Hon's - people recommend Hon's to tourists all the time. Chinese food here is just so much better than that.
