So I'm looking for a uniquely Vancouver amazing foodie experience... Seeing as it is Vancouver, and I do love seafood... obviously my emphasis is on seafood. Don't eat pork or beef, going with my dad and so sharing little plates of things is an added bonus, and price or atmosphere (can be fun, can be casual, can be upscale or not, can be a hidden gem, etc...as long as it's not overrated) are flexible. Love sushi (hoping to try some goeduck or abalone somewhere), anything seafood, and nothing too heavy. Only cuisines that I don't really enjoy are Chinese, and French and Italian are ok but I would rather have other cuisines. Also love cheese...don't think this can be put into consideration, though :) I only have one lunch, and one dinner. From previous research I've found:
Guu with Garlic or Kyingo (which is better?)
Sun Sui Wah (for the crab)
Leaning towards Guu or Kyingo because it's not something I can find in Chicago, or probably anywhere else very easily in America. Is this better for lunch or dinner?
Having a tough time deciding between dinner options... Bin 941 is appealing for the sharing/seafood/reviews, C for the all seafood choices, Chambar for the reviews, and Vij's for the reviews (though I'm skeptical that it means it will be a bit overrated and think I might be able to get something similar in Chicago)
Leaning away from West (heard mixed reviews, though I'm sure I would really enjoy it but it might be one of those overrated restaurants) and Sun Sui Wah (only considered it because of such high praise of dim sum and the live crab).
What are your opinions on these? Also, there's a possibility my sister might come with her kids... if so, are any of these appropriate for a 4 year old and a 6 mos old? If not, any suggestions?
