Vancouver food tours?

came across a number of food tours as i was researching daytime activities for my trip to Vancouver. they seem like a great lunch option, except for the last which is timed for dinner. anyone have any feedback on these companies? (dinner tour


also, is the street food really that good or stick to restaurants?

  1. I've never taken any food tours so I'm no help there. As for the food carts, there are a few that get consistent mentions but overall I've not been super impressed. I also find them relatively expensive. I suppose it may depend a bit on where you're coming from and the possible novelty. I like the Tacofino fish tacos, and the takoyaki from Isa.

      I can recommend both for dinner and for lunch.

      The street food is pretty hit or miss. Mostly miss. If you are coming in the summer when the weather is nice, then I think giving a one or two of the carts a try might be a good idea. La Brasserie (the chicken sandwich) and Soho Road Naan Kebab (their naan is the highlight as they make them fresh to order in a tandoor) are my current favourites.

        ...and there are always the Japadog carts...still my favourite street food in the city.
