What you'll do

Vancouver is well known as an ocean-fringed metropolis with some of the finest food in the country but finding the best local flavors requires a local connection. Get an accelerated introduction to Vancouver’s food scene, from the redbrick dive bars of Gastown to Vietnamese Bahn mi sandwich joints. There’ll be time to sample a few favorites along the way, like Carolina-style pulled pork sandwiches ideally washed down with a local craft beer, and perhaps chocolate from Canada’s oldest chocolate shop as an added treat. Enjoy the chatty restaurants of Chinatown as you crunch down on delicious crispy duck and learn more about the local cuisine. Let your local host guide you into a traditional medicine shop before you stop for a lunch spread of dim sum delights and freshly-brewed Chinese tea. This multicultural mecca demands one thing: arrive hungry.

Where you’ll go

With your Vancouverite host at the helm, you’ll soon discover the city’s diverse and distinctive mini districts and learn why Vancouver is Canada’s dine-out capital. Kickstarting on an empty stomach and at the iconic Steam Clock, you’ll be led down the cobblestone streets of Gastown before unleashing your appetite on seafood tasters of seasonal prawns and wild-caught salmon as well as other Vancouver superfoods. From here, jostle your way through the Millennium Gates as you head towards Chinatown where samples of bao buns, barbecued duck, and delicious dumplings await as your next pitstop. Finally, wash it all down with some of the city’s incredible craft beers. Visit one of your local hosts' favorite brewing co’s to experience why Vancouver has emerged as a global player in the craft brewing scene, first-hand.
