I find that I will be in Vancouver for one night, probably in June. I am a complete blank slate where this part of the world is concerned. I know absolutely nothing about it.
I will have one dinner, one breakfast, and maybe one lunch. (Dinner, at least, will be a party of 8.)
I dont really care for high end, dress-up-in-your-Sunday-go-to-meetin'-clothes, fine dining places, especially since I will be there for only one night and will be traveling very light. I much prefer casual, comfortable surroundings and local specialties.
So please help:
What do they do in Vancouver best? What do they do in Vancouver better that anyplace else? Where can I get these dishes?
I know that Vancouver has a Chinatown; Is anything particularly recommended for a guy coming from a city that doesnt have a Chinatown but has been to the ones in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, and London?
Is there a good place to get poutine in Vancouver, or is this strictly an Eastern Canada thing?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
