Your Top 3 restaurants in Vancouver

As in, favourite destinations. No regard to price or atmosphere, I'd just like to know your favs.

So far, mine are, in no particular order:

1. Vij's
2. Minami
3. Fable

I've been doing a fair amount of research as to best restos in Van, but wondered what are commonly Ch'ers favs.

Thanks in advance!

      1. re: starlady

        I've been meaning to go to Burdock & Co - any favourites?

        1. re: justxpete

          You MUST get the fried chicken and really anything...

      2. tough to say! Really depends on what I'm in the mood for.

        I probably go to Shiro most often. Love Blue Water and Le Croc for special occasions.

        1. Mine are (also in no particular order):

          La Buca

          1. Right now, I want to say:

            Tableau Bar & Bistro
            Farmer's Apprentice

            but it does tend to change every month or so...

                Eek! I love Wildebeest too. Maybe I should have made it a top 5!

                Sounds like Octopus Garden is a place I need to go sooner than later!

              2. No one else? C'Mon peeps! Help a guy out!

                  1. re: mendicity

                    I love Sal y Limon also. Major hole in the wall but so good!
                    I forgot to mention La Quercia earlier - that is a great restaurant.

                  2. Having trouble thinking of #3 but:

                    1. Chambar
                    2. La Brasserie

                    1. Vij
                      Les Faux Bourgeois

                      1. This is a random three, not necessarily my "top" three:

                        1. Los Cuervos
                        2. Tableau
                        3. Dinesty

                        Like StarryFork, mine "top" X list changes regularly.

                        1. Hmm, really depends on mood, budget, cravings etc.

                          Top 3 if I could go anywhere in town at this moment:
                          Kitsilano Daily Kitchen

                          Top 3 based on where I mostly end up going
                          Hai Phong
                          Bistro Pastis

                          1. If my eating pattern is evidence of my preferences: (1) Earls Broadway, (2) Cactus Club Broadway, and (3) Keg Yaletown. It must be said though that I hate all three of these restaurants.

                            1. My top 3 has changed dramatically already.

                              It's now:

                              1. Octopus Garden
                              2. Vij's
                              3. Santouka

                              1. Current top 3:
                                House of Dosa's
                                Pizza Farina
