Food, food, food – today it’s all about food.
Believe it or not, there’s more than A&W and Tim Hortons in Vancouver 😉
This blogpost is especially for the ones who love good food and maybe even in a place that is not completely crowded with tourists…and of course for everyone else.
Maybe these places do not offer the best food in the city but the mix of price, quantity and quality makes them a great place to visit if you are on a budget.
Have a look at the variety of interesting food spots i’ve prepared for you guys, and at some point, the time will come where we’re able again to try them out.
Let’s start with a Greek speciality. Stepho’s Greek Taverna is located right in the middle of downtown with locations on Davie and on Robson St. It’s amazing barely being able to see the dish for the food; this describes the restaurant pretty well. You get good food at a great price and huge portions – definitely the perfect match.
Anton’s Pasta Bar:
Who loves good pasta as much as i do?
If you do, Anton’s Pasta Bar is definitely the place to be. Since it is located in Burnaby on Hastings it is a bit more difficult to reach but absolutely worth it. They offer legendary portions of freshly made pasta where you can get a real Italian feeling. Check it out 🙂
Tip: If you prefer staying Downtown try the Old Spaghetti Factory for amazing pasta variations as well; not as good but still good.
Let’s continue with another noodle house.
Hon’s Noodle House: It’s one of the many Chinese restaurants in Vancouver that is seen by most Vancouverites as their “go to” over the last 40 years. Even if the original in Chinatown closed down the one on Robson St is going strong; here is their ridiculously large (and very affordable) menu: http://hons.ca/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Hons-Robson-menu.pdf
Floata Dim Sum: Have you ever heard of Dim Sum? Not me. But maybe you’ve heard of dumplings which i think is probably more familiar to some of us and similar to Dim Sum.
Dim Sum is a kind of Chinese food that many people may not have tried; it is a breakfast or lunch food with small portions for sharing with your family or friends. Mostly there are steamed dumplings, buns and a hefty dose of seafood.
No worries for those not enjoying seafood that much there are still a lot of non-seafood options.
Floata Dim Sum is located at the start of Chinatown on Keefer St.
Rio Brazilian Steakhouse: Last but not least; what would this list be without an all you can eat steak place? This Steakhouse offers a huge variety of meats including pork, chicken, beef, ribs and many more. Therefore, I am sure there is something for everyone.
Additionally, next to the amazing salad bar they have a happy hour every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 3-6pm with delicious food and drinks. You can visit Rio’s just off Davie on Denman st at the downtown west end.
What else to say than Enjoy your meal 😉
