Vancouver BC: best places to eat (from a local)

Vancouver is truly an amazing city. We have mountains, beaches, lots to do, and more importantly, lots of places to eat. These are my top picks for restaurants in Vancouver and close by areas.

*I’m so sorry in advance for the lack of photos for this post, it has been a while since I’ve been to many of these restaurants and I often inhale my food upon it’s arrival to my table, especially when I’m home, when my mind isn’t always on the next blog post.*

Nicli Antiza Pizzeria

The first VPN certified Neopolitan pizzeria in Vancouver.
