Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
$
“One of Vancouver's oldest vegetarian restaurants, The Naam, is located in Kitsilano. Open 24-hours a day, the restaurant’s yam fries with miso gravy have inspired many a late-night stop after a night out on the town. There are also many additional healthy, organic and farm-to-table options. For instance, down by the water, along the foot of Yew Street and Cornwall, you'll find a plethora of laid-back neighbourhood bars and restaurants. They tend to serve delicious seafood, along with wines and cocktails to match. Along West 4th, expect polished dining with a multicultural twist. Meanwhile, West Broadway boasts inspiring Greek and Mediterranean food, as many of Vancouver's Greek immigrants originally settled here.”

Indian Restaurant
$$$
“Vij's has taken Indian cuisine and totally redesigned it for a classy, upscale, and diverse audience. Be prepared to have your mind blown away here, from the initial seating to the service to the food. A+ experience. The menu is very carefully thought out and caters to a diversity of palates. Everyone in your group will find something on the menu they love. They recommend ordering family style, so ordering a bunch of dishes to share across the table. Entrees can be ordered in regular size portions (~$30) or half size portions for $18. The serving sizes here are not ginormous as expected, but it's nice to get a flavor of multiple dishes in family style sharing. I have tried basically every vegetarian dish/item on the menu here, as well as multiple non-veg dishes. Vij's rotates his menu occasionally so you never get bored, but the classic favorites always stay on the menu. Those lamb popsicles. Mmm. The goat curry is a little watery for my liking. If you come here looking for an ordinary Indian meal, you'll be disappointed. Everything here is unique and can't be found at other Indian restaurants. That's what's so great about it. Vegetarian dishes include jackfruit, portobello mushroom, koftas, layered paneer dishes, and more. My favorite non-veg dishes include the sablefish in tomato curry and the lamb popsicles marinated in wine in a fenugreek cream curry. Everything is just bursting with flavor and screams "Indian food redefined."”

Fast Food Restaurant

“One of Vancouver’s many ocean beaches, this one is wonderful for low tide walking. You can walk out for what feels like forever, seeing bald headed eagles fly above while seeing incredible city views in the distance. A good Oceanside concession stand available on dry days that sells good coffee, ice cream, burgers etc. This beach is harder to get to via transit (though doable) but easily accessible by car.”
