Buddhist vegetarian Chinese. Delicious but you will need help due a massive and vague menu. Don't be shy - ask them for advice when ordering. You won't be disappointed.

Secret speakeasy bar - need I say more? The dumplings are a front (but actually delicious). Ask for the “Number 7” to obtain a seat in the hidden lounge. Need to pass through a fake freezer to access the lounge.

Olympic Village is a great starting point to walk around the Vancouver Seawall or grab a meal at one of many great restaurants or food trucks. Parking is a little tough. Consider arrive by public transit.

Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, Gastown retains its historic charm and independent spirit. Victorian architecture houses a thriving fashion scene, impeccably curated décor boutiques, one-of-a-kind galleries and some of the best culinary fare in Vancouver. Gastown is a neighbourhood that seamlessly combines old with new, history with the way forward. An essential part of Vancouver’s history, a visit to Gastown should include a stroll along Water Street, where you’ll find a picture-perfect collection of old buildings, cobblestones, the Steam Clock, and vintage lampposts.

This is my neighbourhood, one of the most ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in east Vancouver. Very central and great starting point for anywhere you need to get to.
