I'm heading over to Vancouver with my girlfriend in a few days, and we'll be staying for about a week-
I have a few questions which I hope the community will be able to answer. (Ok maybe a lot of questions).
We will be staying in central Vancouver near Powell and Carall. ( is this an ok neighbourhood, or are we in the infamous downtown east side?)
1- We're planning on having one "special" meal, and I was thinking Vij's. Does it live up to the hype, or should I be thinking of other options?
2- Dumplings, where can I find the best? (I'm looking for variety as well as quality)
3- Dim sum in central Vancouver, what are the top places?
3- Are there any Indonesian restos worth checking out?
4- What places would you recommend near the anthropology museum / UBC campus?
5- Regional chinese, please point me to the relevant threads.
6- For the first night, we'll be arriving around 9pm. Are there any good places that are open late near our Hostel?
I'm also obviously looking for any places that are unique to Vancouver. I also wouldn't mind finding a restaurant that specializes in Native food, if such a place exists.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
I will continue to search for relevant threads, but I find the Western Canada board a little difficult to navigate. (Too many major cities on one board)
