Hi Vancouver Chowhounds,
I am visiting Vancouver from the San Francisco Bay Area in a few weeks. I recall seeing a TV segment on Food Network once about a Tea Store in Vancouver that had tons of different kinds of tea. It looked sort of yuppie-ish. I've tried to find it on the internet, but no luck as of yet. Does such a place exist?
Also, I've enjoyed reading the restaurant reviews. I'm planning to go to Vij's, Naam, and Wild Rice so far. I like to eat mostly vegetarian and sea food, but not sushi. I'll occasionally eat meat if it is a delectable treat, but I don't really like eating a large piece of meat. I prefer Asian and Mediteranean flavors over classical French or American style restaurants. Also, I like a good value and ethnic cheap eats more than a splurge type restaurant unles it is really, really good. Does anyone have any recommendations?
