4 hour layover at YVR, suggestions for easy-access weekday lunch?

indigirl | Oct 4, 2010 04:39 PM

Hello BC hounds! Wife & I will be on our way home (to Berkeley CA USA) from Japan in November, landing at YVR 11am & our flight home doesn't leave until 3pm.

The question: where can we go for lunch that is:
1) both easy & fast to get to, for people who are jetlagged, sleep-deprived & never been to Vancouver before
2) really good
3) on the cheap side (we will have blown our fancy eating dollars in Japan!)
4) not Japanese (presumably we'll have gotten our fill)
5) preferably different from what we can get in the SF Bay Area, but this is not a must

I hear wonderful things about the Hong Kong Cantonese food scene up there, so I would lean that direction, but open to any & all suggestions! I imagine we won't want anything too rich or complicated, what with the flying & all. In general we tend to eat pretty healthy anyway; good fresh veggies a plus.

I tried searching on "YVR" & saw hot pot recommended for someone else in a similar layover, but I don't want to cook for myself when I'm that tired ;)

Thanks in advance for all advice!
