Visiting Vancouver with my teenage son
- ribboy Mar 7, 2014 08:09 AM
Looking for a few ideas for dining with the teen. We like most foods and are staying downtown but can take the transit to a good place. Thanks
re: Sam Salmon
I tried the Fish Shack a while back and was pretty disappointed. Food was average at best and greasy. Service was really terrible.
Just my experience & maybe an off night.
Exploring Main st. might be a good option:
- Something along the lines of Sam's rec is the Fish 'Counter'.
- Portland Craft might be appreciated from a teen. Not sure if there's an age restriction, or if kids/teens are allowed in pubs yet.
- The Reef? Fairly average Carribean food but a teen would probably like the atmosphere - usually Reggae/hiphop music playing.
Well along those lines (Reef), there's also The Eatery:
An eclectic place, definitely memorable.
Rio Brazilian Steakhouse
Flying Beaver Bar & Grill (go on nice day, sit on the patio watch floatplanes take off and land right in front of you)
Any particular styles of food, budget, ambiance, etc ?
Hmm, what would I have really digged when I was a teenage boy (good thing Hooters on Robson is long gone) ...... just a shot in dark:
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka
Tried getting into the Famous Warehouse last week, a very wet weeknight at 7pm. Packed to the gills :-/
Not wanting to stereotype or be presumptuous ....
Depends on where you folks are from (ie: Canada or US), we have a slowly improving and evolving Latin American/Mexican landscape, these may appeal to the eyes and palate of a 13-yr old:
Stepho's Souvlaki (careful of long wait times at meal times
You guys are like kreskin, my son's favorite is ramen. we loved the burgers last night, he had what he said was an 'amazing' short rib sandwich this afternoon at the cactus club? not from B.C. so i don't know anything about them but it was pouring and we were hungry. thanks again for you ideas
