My friends and I are going to Vancouver in March for our spring break and because we are such food nerds, we want to start planning where we eat already. There are four of us and we are seniors in college, so we don't have a ton of money. We're willing to splurge once or twice, but splurging for us would be spending $15-20 on an entree. Sorry to sound annoying, but no chain restaurants please.
We have a car, so we aren't limiting ourselves to one particular area. But if it's helpful, we are staying in a hotel on Granville & Davie
These are a few of the things were are looking for... If you could include some idea of what the place is like and serves, that would be much appreciated
2) Izakayas - It would be a plus if it served takoyaki and/or okonomiyaki.
3) Wine bars - We liked Salt. Not something stuffy or with glasses starting at $10 or something.
5) Pub - Preferably some place that has good food and brews their own beer. Or some place that offers a large and diverse selection of beers.
6) Brunch - Something greasy spoon.
