About Joyce Chua

Food is the perfect friend – always comforting, never judging, fully inspiring, and happy to be shared. Food leads me on my world travels, introducing me to new spices, techniques, and cultures. I love the smiles in the city that I see every day as food lovers indulge in Vancouver’s diverse culinary scene. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to combine my passion for food and people through Vancouver Foodie Tours. I hope we can dine together soon!
