What a weekend! Ate izakaya, oysters, Korean, crepes, chef driven Italian, Thai, Indian, Japadog, and Greek! Saw a funk band last night, and :pimp: right out on the street with some new friends. I could totally live there in a heartbeat.

I used to live there also. Great town, very multicultural, very accepting but California X 10 as far as liberal goes. Was great for some things but I drew the line when the province wanted to pay for cell phones for hookers to call 911 when they got in trouble. Food was pretty good, best Chinese I ever had but could not get a good hot dog or pizza. I missed Greek diners also.

I leave in two weeks and I cannot fucking wait. Vancouver has slowly risen to be one of my favorite places on Earth.

I'm planning another food crawl to incorporate izakaya dining, oysters at Forte's and some new surprises. :gop:

I know Vancouver really well. I've gotten to know that place and it's food scene quickly. That being said, I uncover something new every time I go. I was hoping your friend would toss me some quality South Indian. :Phishfolk:

Fortes for a local beer and some oysters first.

Then to Guu with Garlic, my favorite izakaya so far. Sake, tapas, and the like.

Posted Image

Entrees at Tropika. Malaysian and Singaporean, with a hint of Chinese.

Posted Image

The final event is a Nutella crepe from Cafe Crepe. This is where most folks tap out. :lol:
