This is a vague request but I need some help focusing. This is my 4th trip to this corner of the world, my 2nd to Vancouver Island, and my first with my 4.5 year old spring onion in tow. My hubby B and I are known on the Boston board for locating a good meal in conjunction with a spring onion activity and we are striving for the same in Vancouver, where we’ll stay for a couple of days before ferrying over to Vancouver Island (Ukee, Jordan River, and a tiny house outside of Victoria). But there are so many more choices in Vancouver. In Vancouver proper, we’re staying in Strathcona and we plan to hit the usual suspects (science museum, aquarium, Stanley Park, UBC Anthropologie museum, Granville). We always like an adult beverage with our meals. There are many new-to-us brewpubs (which is usually the way we roll since there’s usually something our picky spring onion will eat) but I also suffer a bit from brewpub menu fatigue here in Boston.
Please good folks of Vancouver (or visitors with kids who have eaten well lately), are there any must-eats around these kid-centric places?
I depended a lot on greyelf, islandgirl, and LotusRapper on Chowhound on our last trip to Vancouver Island (2014) but I don’t see them here. Are there any Vancouver-area Onions out there? I always report back.
