If you've been on the hunt for the next best restaurant in Vancouver to try out some tasty seafood, this food blogger's suggestions will have you booking a reservation in a matter of seconds.

Vancouver food blogger, Steph Wan, has been sharing her drool-worthy food photos and recommendations with the world since 2013, on her Instagram, @stephwants. She always loved to discover new places to dine, try out different cuisines and snap food pics.

"The more I explored the food scene, I realized how much I love telling stories with food, spending time in spaces, and the sense of connection restaurants can provide," Wan told Narcity.

From there, her passion for food only grew and in 2021, Wan and her partner, Kevin Lin, decided to open up their own restaurant. Land & Sea is located in Vancouver, B.C., and it has become a space for people to share their love of delicious food and drinks.

Their restaurant has some amazing signature seafood dishes to try out including the Ora King Salmon Soba, Custom Land & Sea Board, Gindara Sablefish and Chili Crab.

Wan's passion for food has allowed her to discover some of the most mouth-watering spots in the city of Vancouver and when she is not having seafood from her own restaurant, these are the places she loves to hit up.
