Visiting Vancouver: Looking for good Shanghainese & other cuisine

BelXSar | Sep 29, 2013 10:52 PM

I'm planning on taking a trip to Vancouver with my parents next month, arriving October 13 from Edmonton and leaving October 17. We like to eat, and we're especially looking for great Shanghainese cuisine, or any other good authentic Chinese cuisine that you can't get in Alberta. We're also open to any other cuisine recommendations, though my parents don't care for Japanese food. Places don't have to be fancy decor or service-wise; we'd much rather have great food in a casual environment (family-run places are great!) or even hole-in-the-wall places rather than more upscale places where prices reflect you're paying for their rent and decor. Locals' favorites/best-kept-secret types would be ideal. :) We'll be staying in Richmond, and will have a car rental, though probably not wanting to venture too far out of the Vancouver area. I've heard of the Granville Market--is that worth checking out, and if so, how much time should we plan for it? Any input would be much appreciated, thanks! =)
