If you are like me, you hate the idea of having to think of a place to eat your next meal. Lucky for us, Vancouver is stocked with great restaurants in every neighbourhood. And lucky for you, I prefer to let a professional cook the food I eat, so I can proudly say that I have eaten at more than 90% of these places.

In no particular order, (except for #1 because they have the best Chicken and Waffles in Vancouver) here are a list of 74 restaurants that you need to try.
