It’s a simple equation really: fresh seafood from the Pacific Ocean + immigration from Asia = superb cuisine.
Vancouver’s sushi is particularly succulent (and cheap), but there are a huge variety of cuisines to choose from including Cantonese, Japanese, Korean and fusion. Huge lobsters, fresh oysters, tasty crabs, crispy seaweed and diverse Dim sum are just the start of it.
After dinner, explore the bright lights of Chinatown and stroll through the Night Market, which runs at weekends from mid-May until early-September. The roads are closed to cars for the evening and throng with activity, lined with stalls selling everything from exotic fruit to cuddly toys. During the daytime, the Dr. Sun Yet San Chinese Gardens offer a peaceful respite in the busy district, perfect for unwinding during your English course in Vancouver
You can find excellent food of all types at Vancouver’s street carts. Be sure to try the Japa Dog, a true local specialty. The Japanese-style hotdog comes with toppings like nori seaweed, okonomiyaki, yakisoba, teriyaki and pickled daikon radish to create a unique take on a classic!
