When I go out with my BFF, it always involved food. Either for lunch, dinner or just an afternoon snack, our ritual is to always discover new restaurants that none of us have been to. Sometimes, we feel our relationship is bound by our love for food. It can be sweet, savoury, fatty, bitter, we eat everything.
As she's coming next week in Vancouver, I thought of listing the best restaurants in downtown Vancouver! As we'll send the day together, lunches will be THE meal of day. Here are the best restaurants in downtown Vancouver to have a cute lunch with your BBF:

Meat & Bread // 370 Cambie St
For a quick lunch, this is the place to go. Waiters are super welcoming and always know what fits the most with your taste, as the menu is changing everyday. I dare you not to get their brownie ice-cream sandwich for dessert...

The Meet in Gastown // 12 Water St
This is one of Vancouver's must-try restaurants! 100% vegan, this place will convince you that vegan does not only mean eating fruits. My BFF loves creamy mac & cheese, I can't wait for her to taste the vegan one!

Tsuki Sushi Bar // 509 Abbott St
Vancouver is the place to eat California rolls. Fusing Western ingredients with Japanese rice and seaweed rolls, this taste even better as they are super healthy! What I love about Tsuki Bar is they offers a large variety of rolls (especially vegetarians) AND they have an amazing dessert menu like black sesame cheesecake.

Nero Belgian Waffle // 1703 Robson St
Fill your food-savvy tummy with the most amazing waffles in Vancouver. Make it yourself waffles you won't even think of sharing, you'll want to eat both one savoury and one sweet waffle until the last bit! How to resist to a Brussel waffle topped with vanilla ice cream, hazelnut crumble and caramel sauce?

Cafe medina // 780 Richard St
This place is known for brunch, but the real food-savvy do not care whether they had breakfast already, Cafe Medina's brunch is calling for them! Serving brunch from 8 to 3pm, you'll spend more time debating with your BFF on what to order than eating those scrumptious dishes!

For cozy and intimidate lunch with your bestie, Frankie's offers great food and a lovely atmosphere. You'll get to share gossip and secrets over authentic Italian comfort food. Plus, they have unique cocktails such as the coffee martinis.
