Phenomenal pizza. Do not bother heading out anywhere else as this place is one of the best in the City. Pizza Barbarella at Fraser and Broadway is another great spot, however, Carano has excellent other dishes; try their meatballs to start.

Another hip small room with amazing technique as it relates to their food and love of craft cocktails. Their burger is arguably the best in the city; 60 day aged chuck, chicken jus hollandaise and a whole lot of extra goodness. It's worth the $24 splurge.

Locals line up for this haunt (although I most likely will be at Bows + Arrows), they are known for more decadent brunch dishes. Pulled pork benny's; cornflake crusted french toast etc. Made famous by the Food Networks - Drive in Diners and Dives.

Although the map says Robson, there is one located now at Broadway and Fraser. A quick slice of thin crust, for a quick budget dinner.

A decent taco and where else can you get a hibiscus margarita this close to your house. Try the duck confit taquitos - yes fusion, but they also own Les Faux Beaujoise, so it kind of makes sense.

This 24 hour restaurant is everything at it' best. Great for that late night binge. Torta's, fried chicken and Banhi mi. Chicken done right, buttermilk soaked fried chicken. Tamales are supposed to be pretty good too. Oh and they serve like 40 different types of doughnuts.

Smashed Avo, Smoked Salmon and Lemon dressed Arugula with a poached egg - or - Fried chicken benny with country gravy, hollandaise on homemade scones. Your choice - healthy or decadent. It would be shameful to not mention, their pancake topped with duck confit, homemade kimchi, a poached egg and japanese mayo. It's ridiculous here.
