Vancouver Locals Show Us Where They Like to Eat
Do you agree with their choices of the city's favourite restaurants?
September 25, 2015
“Where do you like to eat?” It’s a question we ask—and are asked to answer—countless times throughout our lives. Several factors inform favourite dining destinations: service, convenience, nostalgia, and (of course) taste. But more often than not, a combination of each of these elements influences where we end up going time and again.
We asked some colourful Vancouverites to tell us where their appetite leads them when the choice is theirs to make.
