The Best Fish and Chips are on Granville Island

I’d love to have a bird’s-eye-view of Granville Island. Our signature red Vancouver Foodie Tour t-shirts would look like little dots leading clusters of people from Edible Canada to the Granville Island Public Market.

After several escapades involving large plates of said […]

Surf’s Up! Rodney’s Oyster House

Rodney’s Oyster House in Yaletown 1228 Hamilton Street Vancouver, B.C. Mondays to Sundays 11:30am – 11:00pm There’s no denying that oysters are an acquired taste; the slippery, slimy, ocean-infused seafood is certainly not for everyone.
