So I've posted similar before, but we've switched our route, so I'm back asking for new amazing restaurants on our drives to/from Whistler:
Our old route (Boundary Way) got us to a wealth of options (favorites: Yummy Mammy, Joyce Jaozi, Joyce St. Market). But now we take 20th/Griffiths to Canada Way.
Obviously we're huge Alvin Garden fans, and Anatolia's Gate makes a great stop. We've also hit Safari Snacks and Dosa Grill (now Chettinad Dosa?) a number of times. Sometimes we'll get further off course and hit D Roti Shack.
I'm wondering what else is really great and interesting over there? Most interested in Chinese, Indian, other harder to find things here in Seattle. Less interested in Japanese, Vietnamese, Western European, Korean, American (unless something super unique), as we have pretty good versions here in Seattle.
Any cool places I'm overlooking? Ideally right on that route or just a few blocks off, and need to be open until about 9pm, as we usually get there around 8pm.
Thanks for the ideas, Vancouver, you've always kept me in tasty eats!
Oh! Edited to add one last note: Preferably places not in Crystal mall. I love them all, they're all amazing, but the parking garage scares the shit out of my crazy dog, and so we can't just leave him in the car there as we do other places.
