I will be visiting on business and to see my dad at the end of next month, and was looking for a few dining recommendations. I used to live in Vancouver many years ago and am somewhat familiar with the city, but am looking for the must-eats since I was last there in 2005. Money is no object and we enjoy all cuisines from high to low. If it helps to narrow it down, we will be staying near Stanley Park, but will have a vehicle available for trips further afield.
Potential places I had considered so far are Salt, Vij's (or Maurya), Kingyo and that's about where I ran out of ideas. Beyond the places I'd mentioned, I would like some suggestions for a great dim sum place (I will be working in Richmond during the day on Friday and Saturday, so either downtown or Richmond are fine) and also a great sushi bar. Anywhere else that you think I should eat would be appreciated, too.
I have a lobster/crab allergy, but am hoping spot prawns will be in season by then because I love them. One of the people in my party also has a nut allergy, so we are keeping that in mind, too.
I have the following meals available:
dinner on Thursday
dinner on Friday
breakfast/dinner on Saturday
all meals on Sunday
breakfast/lunch on Monday
Thanks in advance for the info!
