Seeking Seafood in Vancouver

mommabear | Jun 26, 2008 11:10 PM

I'll be in town for a weekend next month and have been reading posts on Vancouver restaurants, but I'm confounded by the recommendations.

I would expect Vancouver to really specialize in seafood - salmon, halibut, cod, etc., but I'm seeing very few recs for a good seafood dinner. Many, many more recommendations for ethnic. So, what's up with that?

I've looked at online menus for so many restaurants, and it seems like their seafood offerings are pretty sparse - maybe one or two fish dishes at most. Even the Cannery - their menu has trout and salmon, period.

Maybe I'm used to more variety, even here in Philadelphia, where there are almost always several fish dishes on the menu. Is seafood just not that popular in Vancouver?
