I will be staying in Vancouver for business but will have some time for sightseeing/good eats! I will be staying in Downtown but hoping to venture into Richmond too.
I've lived in Bay Area, Houston, and was just in NY/Flushing so would love to try something I don't typically find in these areas
Budget is not an issue but prefer nothing too high end/dress code. Something quiet, hole in the wall/mom&pop would be great. Hate waiting in lines but understand if its delicious :)
Any suggestions for below?
Sushi (traditional- prefer a quiet old guy making amazing but not just typical sushi)
Japanese street food/izakaya- Robson St seems good place to start?
Ramen- Usually go for tonkotsu but anything different would be awesome
Patisseries/Bakeries/Ice Cream - Asian/European especially
Seafood- doesn't need to be high end, something unique for Vancouver
Dumpling/Noodle Soups/Dim sum- would love to try more SE Asian, (Burmese/Malaysian/Viet etc) but great unique Chinese/Korean would be awesome too
Thank you so much for help!!
