Hi, I'll be visiting Victoria and Vancouver for about a week and was hoping to get some recommendations about where to eat. Directions would be greatly appreciated since it'll be my first time in either place.
I'm looking for places which are cheap (main dishes around $10), although for sushi I was thinking maybe more around $35 for one person. And except for sushi, I'd rather avoid East Asian cuisine; overabundance of it here so I'd like a change :) I'll be staying at hostels in both places, with no car, so would prefer restaurants which are easy to find and easily accessible.
I noticed a place called Shiro mentioned on another thread - would this fit what I'm looking for? The hostel in Vancouver is located near Burrard/Davie.
Are there any particular 'must eat' foods while I'm visiting (you know, sort of like having poutine while in Quebec :)?
Also, I'm having dinner with some people at Sand Bar in Vancouver - what's it like?
Thanks so much for your suggestions!
