I come from a family serious about food. I have lived in Vancouver for several years and am relatively familiar with most of the obvious choices, the problem is so is my dad. I am looking for a meal he will remember, something different. None of us are opposed to dive spots nor are we opposed to formal restaurants, just looking for that memorable meal. He doesn't drink much, certainly no cocktails, but a good wine list will not pass unnoticed. No place overly modern or trendy (unless deservedly so). As far as food tastes in Vancouver go, he likes Vij's, loved the old Tojo's, loves Japadog, if you need more just ask, but I think thats it for Vancouver so it'll have to be elsewhere. Maybe a great place for whole fish in Richmond? West is a little bland. Maybe Maenam for lunch one day? There was also that northern chinese place that popped up here a month or 2 ago, my sister and I went and it was delish. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone!
