I'm working out of Vancouver for a few weeks and was hoping for some help finding places to try for lunch. I'm working at Burrard and Pender and am willing to walk 5-10 minutes. I'm looking for places that are more take-out/quick lunch spot than fine dining (i.e. $8-10, in and out in 20 mins). So far I've tried Meat and Bread, which is awesome, and Fujiya for sushi (not the best, but very respectable for the convenience and cost). Considering that sushi and sandwiches are two of my favourite foods, I’d likely be ok just alternating between the two for weeks but I figure I should probably make more of an effort than that.
The next one on my list to try is Mogu, but after that I’m running out of suggestions that aren’t the typical food court type chains. Does anyone have any other favourites? Perhaps some nearby ramen, Thai curry, banh mi, or Mexican? I don’t really have any preferences in terms of cuisine, just looking for whatever is tasty.
