I only recently arrived in Vancouver after about 5 years in LA. I’d gotten used to the fabulous Chinese food available in the San Gabrial Valley and fantastic Thai found in and around Thai town and Hollywood. And the ramen. It was at a point where you could have a favorite ramen-ya in almost any area of the city. It was glorious.
Now I’m here in the great and unexpectedly white north (seriously, there hasn’t been this much snow in vancouver in almost 10 years) and while I’m delighted to live in such a fantastic multicultural city, it’s a LOT to take in. Chinese food is especially predominant, and though I know that Richmond is to Vancouver as the SGV is to LA, I don’t know my way around. I’ve found Fraser to be home to a number of tasty filipino places, but I’m always looking for the really special spots.
So, where should I go to eat, eh?
