My Visit to Vancouver

TO Girl | Mar 12, 2005 11:25 PM

Back here in snowy Toronto thinking of the crocuses, daffodils and cherry trees in full bloom in Vancouver. I visited some wonderful restaurants and here is my opinion:
- Had a couple of quick lunches at one of the Japanese places on Robson while at my conference. Good quality and a great price. Had a bento box with teriyaki chicken, tempura, california rolls, and more for $7.
- Lunch at Tropica for Indonesian food. Toronto seems to have a Thai place on every block so the Indonesian was a welcome change. Lovely presentation and very tasty food
- Lunch once at Red Robin which, for a typical burger joint had a fun atmosphere and good food.
- Dinner at Chutney Village on the Main, which serves south Indian food. I was not familiar with most menu items but the server suggested something which was spectacular. It came with all sorts of sauces and condiments. Very tasty and reasonably priced.
- Saved the best for last. Took my sister and brother-in-law out for dinner at Provence in Yaletown and had one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant. Loved their showcase of appetizers and the boccicini wrapped in proscuito was fabulous. I had the halibut, my sister had the ahi (?) tuna and brother-in-law had the rack of lamb. All fabulous with a friendly, knowledgeable server who made us feel very welcome and special. Oh yes, it also has a great wine list and awesome desserts. Provence alone gives me an excuse to return to Vancouver!
