Food trip in Vancouver...
First thanks everyone for taking the time to post in this thread...
Hello everyone... I am going to do a trip in Vancouver and I need some advice about where to eat...a most do not miss kind of place...
(I like the Italian steak house, a good Chinese, etc. I am open to suggestions.)
Inexpensive breakfast...Maybe a good public market!!!
A good Bar with good apetizers and inexpensive drinks "Happy hour"
Please let me know your opinions.
Happy hour in Vancouver, by law, can only offer inexpensive food items when drinks are ordered. Which, really, makes for a less expensive food & drink option. But only if you are planning to order food.
In the neighborhood of the Sheraton Wall Centre, there are many casual drink-focused eateries, most of which have mediocre food.
Granville Island Public Market is kinda fun to wander around in. It's pretty touristy on the weekends but since you are a tourist :-). I can't think of a steakhouse I'd recommend here, and Italian is not really a strength either. Chinese for sure, especially Cantonese, but maybe you'd like to give us more of an idea of what kind of Chinese you like.
Public markets in the Vancouver area are significantly smaller than what you might experience in Barcelona (my only Spanish experience), or Kensington in Toronto. That said, I personally enjoy a visit to Granville Island, and the Aquabus from downtown Vancouver is an experience in itself.
I live in the neighbourhood of the Sheraton Wall Centre; very central to many options!
Recently enjoyed late-afternoon lunch at Tap and Barrel at Olympic Village. Flight of 3 regional beers, and tasty flatbread; with a bonus side of people-watching. 20 minute walk from downtown, or, take the Aquabus, CanadaLine train, or bus. Patio is on the west side of the building, to catch afternoon sun (beware of children playing nearby).
