Like the name says: just braised or slow-roasted meats, served on ciabatta buns. They are known for their hand-carved porchetta, but I order the daily special—that is, if I can get there before 2 p.m. The restaurant is first come, first served, so...

The owners at this breakfast and lunch spot make almost everything from scratch and by hand, from grinding chickpeas for their hummus to making almond milk for the granola. They even offer vegan butter. (604) 681-5776. As told to Rhonda May. This...

I'm a lover of fancy pizza, and Nicli Antica did not disappoint. Their pizzas are fresh and covered in delicious and creative toppings. Pies run about $10 and two pizzas would feed three people. They even have a brunch pizza with toppings like...

The market community at the Public Market really makes Granville Island a must-visit in Vancouver. The vibrant colors of the fruits and vegetables that aren't on the East Coast really stand out, especially on farmers market days. The market goes...

Yolk's Restaurant and Commissary is not the fanciest place in town, but they do offer one of the city's best brunches. The specialty is Eggs Benedict - as the restaurant name refers to their pursuit of the perfect poached egg. However, no Yolk's...

Amid the bustle of Chinatown stands this lovely 15th-century-style garden, named for the father of modern China. Even though it was built in 1986, artisans from Suzhou constructed the entire property without nails, screws, or power tools. The...

Japadog is one of those odd and wacky combinations of a hot dog with Japanese toppings, but it works! I had the Terimayo, a teriyaki-drenched dog topped with seaweed. Not substantial for the $5 price tag, but a good snack. The location on Robson...
