5 days in Vancouver

Hello, I am visiting Vancouver for 4 nights, 5 days, and will be staying near East Hastings and Commercial Drive. I’ve been checking out the boards and have a long list of places that I’m interested in trying out, but can use some advice. Here’s my situation and interests: I will be on my own, and won’t have a car. I’m from New York, and love any type of food, but I have heard that Vancouver has some of the best Asian food in North America, and so am particularly interested in those cuisines. I know Cantonese food very well, and am open to trying anything highly recommended, but Chinese of course is less exciting if I am by myself. I’m very keen on having sushi, and have noted good value recs such as Miko and Ajisai. I’m not quite sure what I am going to be doing, but will surely visit the best known tourists spots such as Stanley Park and Granville Island, so any good lunch recs around those sorts of spots would be appreciated (I have already noted Go Fish). Not every meal has to be a gastronomic feast, but I do want to make the most of my eating time in Vancouver! On the other hand, I don’t want to spend an inordinate amount of time on public transportation getting to and from restaurants. I am thinking so far: Miko for sushi, possibly Ajisai as well, Rangoli, and perhaps a dim sum. I would also love some recs near where I’m staying, particularly for the day of my arrival, when I am sure to be tired, and will probably want takeout. Any suggestions appreciated!
