Hi,
how are you all going? I wonder if anyone knows of any Greenland, Icelandic, Welsh and Scottish restaurants in Vancouver?
cheers,
Holly

    have you checked out this place? (Jolly Meats)
    in north van, just east of the north end of the 2nd narrows bridge
    it's quite near one of the bus loops - so if you don't have car, it's still accessible

          Just in case you're pining for British fare (and LOTS of royalty paraphernalia, perhaps they'll be getting even more now that it's gonna be "William & Kate + one" .......)

          Too bad they don't offer blood pudding, mushrooms nor fried tomatoes on the Fry-Up plate ...... oh the infamy !! ;-)

                The Cheshire chain has seen much better days ....... pretty much even any low-end pub will blow it out of the waters. Only two left now, after the W. Boulevard one just recently closed. With Lonsdale Quay neighbourhood spiffying up big time in recent years, it's only a matter of time before that Cheshire inside the Quay give up its high-zoot second floor digs to make room for something more modern and ...... bettah ;-)

          not exactly a restaurant but they have lots of UK foodstuffs

          for other cultures - i would look at the various ethnic community centers and churches ...

            Good suggestion, GS.

            And the SCC is just in Marpole, maybe the OP would be able to inquire with:

              thanks! great idea and will do regarding cultural centers and yes, just found out about celtic deli. i even checked with some scottish friends of mine and like myself beforehand, we are only aware of Mary's British goods in steveston.

              The brothers Richard & Maurice McDonald were Scottish-Irish ;-)

              There's the Highlander Pub at the Abercorn Inn (Best Western) on Bridgeport Rd, across from Costco.

                  thanks the same, i did some research along with some of my foodie buddies, it doesn't seem to serve authentic Scottish cuisine. =-(

                  Scottish: McDonald's?

                  All kidding aside - I have heard of Icelandic dinners held by the community here. I haven't been able to confirm.
