Hello All. Returning to Vancouver for the first time in several years and staying for 5 nights on Granville Island. I have been reading the posts and there seem to be many good places to try. The issue for me is proximity, or at least ease of access, from Granville Island without using a car. Yes, I can take a cab, but to be honest I would rather walk or take public transit and spend the $ on food and drink.
I am from Toronto and so we have a very vibrant Asian dining scene here. For those of you familiar with both cities what should we try in Vancouver that we are not likely to be able to get in Toronto?
Otherwise I would be looking for perhaps smaller more intimate places with a varied menu with maybe one or two more over the top (read expensive) dinners.
All suggestions are welcome and thanks in advance.
