Late notice I know - but still asking for assistance. The absolute requirements so far are shellfish (so Rodney's is a no-brainer), Kingyo, La Quercia, possibly L'Abbattoir, and then? I won't say money's no object, but we'll pay for good food - as well as delight in holes-in-the wall. Generally, we're looking for food we can't easily produce at home. All suggestions gratefully considered. We live in northern BC, so game isn't a prime requirement, and we can cook more than pork & beans - after that - bring it on - please.

    If you like Chinese food and you can rustle up four diners, then the Chinese SIgnature Dish Dining Festival is happening during that time. http://www.chineserestaurantawards.co... The dinners that I have had have been very good. Highend Chinese for about $25pp. Mostly Cantonese in nature, but Alvin Garden (Hunan) is a participant and a great hole-in-the-wall.

    Holes-in-the-walls...(some of the following are hole-ier that others). Alvin Garden, Bo Laksa King, Seri Malaysia, Peaceful.

          Thanks! Soup buns & rice noodles for lunch yesterday at Lin's, with oysters at Rodney's for dinner followed by drinks at XiShin - the weekend's off to a good start. Sadly, La Quercia fully booked - will think of something else.

            If you like La Quercia, you might enjoy La Buca. It can book up as well as it is quite small. Similar vibe, neighbourhood, muscular Italian tratty fare. I am particularly fond of the steak fiorentina.
