Hi, everyone - we're New Yorkers visiting Vancouver in a few weeks. It's a repeat trip for us to Vancouver, one of the world's most beautiful and amazing cities. We're looking for the best restaurants in the categories below of whatever price range, from Chowhoundish/cheap to pricey/fancy.
On our last trip, we had the best Indian we ever had. Vij's was incredible! We also went to one of the most overrated restaurants, C. Just didn't get that place at all - barely average food in a beautiful setting with okay service.
Anyway, your recommendations for the below would be so much appreciated:
1. Best Thai
2. Best Malaysian
3. Best Seafood, including North American and Greek places that serve fish
4. Best Italian, Northern or Southern Italian
5. Best Chinese, haute cuisine or Chinatown-ish
6. Best Middle Eastern - does Vancover have good Middle Eastern?
