I need your expertise chowhounds!

I need Vancouver suggestions...and lots of them!

I will be in your neck of the woods for 2 and a half months and need as many culinary suggestions as you can fork out.

Lunch - walking distance from the convention center. Takeout or delivery only, sadly.

Dinner - anywhere accessible by public transport. Any price. Can be a dive or expensive. Any type of cuisine. As long as the food is awesome. Will be in big groups at times, or solo at times. I like to eat at a different place every day if possible, so need tons of suggestions.

Also, I welcome any Vancouver food blogs that you enjoy reading.


  1. Here are a few good places to eat for dinner or late night chow:

    1. Jang Mo Jib (Korean)- Robson (Best go with a large crowd, and maybe someone who is Korean, because these are authentic dishes, and some of them may not sound appetizing at first glance.
    2. Tropika-Robson
    3. Banana Leaf- Broadway/ Denman
    4. Trattoria- W. 4th Ave
    5. The Red Door- Granville (The Shaking Beef and the Pineapple Fried Rice are amazing)
    6. The Eatery- W. Broadway
    7. Sophie's Cosmic Cafe-W 4th (Breakfast/Brunch)
    8. Cafe Zen- Breakfast (The most choices of Eggs Benedict I have ever seen on a menu)
    9. Noodle Box- W. 4th Ave
    10. Ebisu - Downtown
    11. Some Kinda Pasta- W. 10th
    12. Memphis Blues BBQ (Go with 2 or 3 ppl and get the Memphis Feast.)
