It's a multi-cultural city, but it prides itself on its Asian food, seafood and farm-to-table philosophy. It's ethnic, cosmopolitan, hipster, hippie and also healthy, so there's something for most diets. The Chinese food scene is arguably the best outside of China especially in Richmond (a city 20 minutes away from downtown Vancouver), and sushi is arguably the "hot dog" of New York. Being on the West Coast, the seafood is fresh and sustainable options are plentiful. Having beautiful mountains, a clean ocean, and sustainable farms, seasonal menus effortlessly showcase the bountiful harvest of BC.
