Vancouver (3 nights) and Tofino (2 nights)

CampySD | Mar 27, 2011 06:30 PM

Hi 'hounds,

Ex-pat Canandian (F'ton, NB) visiting from San Diego, in Vancouver for 3 nights (Wed, Thurs & Sun) and Tofino (Fri & Sat), looking mainly for unique experiences in downtown Vancouver and YVR.
Will be staying in downtown, Robson and Burrard, for 2 nights and then probably one night (Sun) near the airport on the way out of town.

Aiming for great sushi without traveling all day long. I know downtown is not the best, from what I've read, but I don't want to spend my 1st trip to the homeland in 2y driving around an unfamiliar city. Thoughts on (based on posts): Juno, Tsunami, Toratsu, Kimura, Hapa, Honjin and maybe Santouka (we have one in SD, but ramen in the rain seems appropriate).
Thinking of Hidden for an arrival night fix or lunchtime meal...

Was a Montrealer for 5+ years before moving to San Diego - is La Belle Patate worth a meal (poutine)?
Would like to try Japadog for the hype - is it worth it?
A colleague recommended Tony's Fish and Oyster Cafe, but reviews seem mixed.

We're in town for a wedding on Sat (meal already determined), but Fri dinner and Sun breakfast are open options, so far.
