Izakaya crawl in Vancouver and Chinese food near the airport

vjparee | Aug 2, 2011 02:17 AM

I'm going to be in Vancouver for three days in August and my husband is keen to do an izakaya crawl. I gather that Guu with Garlic, Kingyo and Zakkushi are all within walking distance of each other, and could be visited in a tapas-style crawl. So, my quesitions:

1. Do I need to make reservations? We would likely do this on a Monday or Tuesday night. If I reserve, how far apart should I space the reservations?

2. What are the must order items at each place?

3. Are there any other places to add to our tour that might be better? Should I forget about this idea and just stick with one place? (and if so, which one?)

Next up, I'm wondering about eating in Richmond: We arrive at YVR at 7pm Saturday night, and are staying at an airport hotel in Richmond. From reading the many threads about Chinese food and dim sum, I gather this is the place to be to find the best. Are the food markets an option on a Saturday night? Or, does anyone have a suggestion for something that is easily accessible to two hungry, jet lagged travelers?

Thanks in advance for any help!
