Vancouver restaurants

Vancouver's restaurant scene is impressive for a city of its size. The waterfront location means seafood is king, and the city's large Asian population is reflected in the many sushi shops, noodle bars, dim sum parlors, and food trucks, especially in the downtown area. Most of Vancouver's upscale food-savvy restaurants are on Alberni Street behind old brick facades in Yaletown or heritage-hip Gastown. But a short cab ride over one of the three bridges (Granville, Burrard, or Cambie) will take you south to the big-name and hyper-local establishments of Bishop's, Tojo's, and Vij's. Be aware: High liquor taxes in British Columbia mean that wine prices in Vancouver restaurants can be exorbitant.
