Local Traditional Restaurants in Vancouver

Vancouver is a multicultural city, so there's isn't a "local" cuisine, as per say. But, we are surrounded by an abundant amount of water and farm land, which means that we are privy to some of the best produce in the world. Vancouver's traditional cuisine could be summed up into three words: local, fresh and seasonal.

Bishop's is the epitome of high end local flavor. John Bishop is a local food hero and is a leader in the industry of using local and seasonal ingredients. With a menu that changes regularly, you will never get sick of the same old dish and it's always a treat to see what delicious concoctions they come up with.

You can't come to Vancouver without eating some sushi. Sure there are more high-end joints to go to, but Toshi is a place where you can go and get fresh fish and not break the bank. There can be a wait at times, but it's worth it.

Seafood and Vancouver are like bread and butter, they go hand in hand. C Restaurant, Coast and Joe Fortes are all great places to go and experience some of British Columbia's seafood that's prepared by skillful chefs.

If you're looking for seafood on the fly, head to Go Fish! for some deliciously tasty and fresh fish tacos. After you've finished your meal, go for a walk on the Seawall or head over to Granville Island. Again, there can be a wait, but the end result will make you forget about standing in line.

Meat & Bread showcase some of British Columbia's finest meat. They source their cuts from a local farm, so not only are you supporting local farmers, but you know that what you're eating is nothing but the freshest!
