We are thinking about staying at the Manor House B&B. Anyone heard of it?
Are there any dangers or annoyances to be aware of while in Vancouver? Any “bad” neighborhoods?
[quote=“fruitcake”]Thanks for the wonderful replies. We will be walking. No transport. Do not know the city well.
Will be there only for 2 full days and 3 nights.
Thanks again for the wonderful replies.
[quote=“Jack Burton”]There’s way too many good restaurants in Vancouver these days.
Do you have a particular cuisine you’re thinking of? ethnic food?
Off the top of my head, you should visit:
Granville Island: it’s a market place. Lots of stalls selling produce, meats, maple syrup (souvenir). Above all, try Duso’s. It’s a stall selling pasta. Their tortellini is fantastic. I also mix their white garlic sauce with their red clam sauce to make the perfect pasta sauce. There’s also very good restaurants on the island. Bridges comes to mind. A tad expensive, but try their breakfast.
The Naam: it’s a vegetarian place not far from Kitts and UBC. (2724 W 4th Ave., Vancouver). great food and dessert.
Vancouver has the best Japanese and Chinese and S.E. Asian food in N. America IMHO. The Greek food is pretty damn good too.
On Broadway, near MEC (Mountain Equipment Coop, it’s like REI), there’s a fantastic Malay/S.E. Asian place called Banana Leaf or something.
Another interesting place is:
Sophie’s Cosmic Cafe - 2095 W 4th Ave. Quite famous for it shakes. nearby to the beach, you can bring your kids there for lunch, then head over to the water.
I seem to remember good restaurants on Commercial Drive. dunno.
I don’t recommend Earl’s.
I like White Spot’s. Famous burger joint. Their burger and manhattan chowder are great. A BC landmark I suppose. Like the In and Out of California, the White Castle of Jersey??
Another slightly pricey, but has great views in QE Park is Seasons.
On Denman Street, there’s tons of restaurants perfect for summertime.[/quote][/quote]
