Vancouver knows food
...And we Vancouverites know our restaurants like we know our umbrellas. The two just go hand in hand.
We know because we go. We go for ocean-wise seafood, we go for izakaya... for charcuterie, and for tapas. We go and we love, for we are the epi-curious. But enough about us, let's hear from a few other notable fans:
"The number of truly outstanding restaurants in Vancouver is astonishing, and the prices are ridiculously low when compared to other food capitals..."
- The New York Times.com
"Fusion is the operative word in restaurant-rich Vancouver, where Northwest meets Japanese meets Indian meets Chinese."
- National Geographic Traveler
"...the city is so obsessed with haute cuisine... diners here spend more money eating out than any other city in Canada... and follow every move of local celebrity chefs with the relish of British soccer fans."
- Alexandra Gill, The Globe & Mail
"British Columbia produces excellent wines but exports very little to the U.S. - a fabulous excuse for a pilgrimage to Vancouver."
- Rhonda May, Food & Wine
"This is Vancouver where the culinary bar is raised higher and the restaurants are more trendsetting than anywhere in the United States."
- Tan Vinh, Seattle Times
