When my fiancee and I met in 2011, she took me to Vancouver for my birthday. We're getting married this weekend and going back for a short honeymoon, including a couple of nights in Victoria.
We'd definitely like to return to Vij. I'm trying to figure out two other dinners and lunches. I'm largely working off of VanMag here, I hope it's a good starting point.
We'd like a nice seafood dinner. What would you recommend between Blue Water Cafe, Yew, and C Restaurant (or others)?
I'm not sure what we'd like for the other meal - I'm thinking West or Hawksworth, but am open to similar suggestions. Would you recommend doing one of those for lunch instead of dinner?
Also, whould you recommend Kingyo for lunch? We'd like to do an Izakaya but had very disappointing food at Guu last time we went.
I'm not sure if we'll try any Chinese this trip (we tend to prefer Szechuan/Hunan to Cantonese and have had a harder time finding that close to where we're staying), but I am curious about Kirin. Is that what you'd recommend for Chinese close to West End/downtown? Any dishes that are highlights on the expansive menu?
In Victoria we'll have one sit down dinner, debating between: Ulla, Zambris (I'm not a big noodle guy; how are the pizza and secondi?) and Brasserie L'Ecole
We also need something we can take on the 5.55 ferry to Anacortes with us. Any take out sugestions?
Thanks for all your help!
