Vancouver Bound

Vancouver Bound 1

By the time you read this, I should be one day into my yearly conference trip. I have a few days to spend in Ottawa, which I always enjoy, and then it will be off to Vancouver. It has been over ten years since I last visited that city and I am really excited for the culinary adventures I have planned. Indeed, when I booked my trip, I eschewed the accommodations available in the conference center and chose a place just about a block away from Vancouver’s excellent Chinatown. I foresee many dim sum excursions in my future, as well as other culinary pleasures, and I will be recording and publishing my experiences in due course.

In the meantime, I have been doing a fair bit of travelling recently , all work related, unfortunately, but I have made a few passes through Yellowknife of late and had a few interesting meals along the way. In the next few days, interspersed with my usual posts, I will be featuring a couple of reviews I did. As for my Vancouver trip… look for the first of my posts beginning next month…

  1. I spend considerable time in Vancouver in the mid-70’s.
    It was a great city then and I am sure it is now 🙂
    Enjoy !

  2. Hi John: Long time no write! Guess that you had a wonderful time in Vancouver. I think outside of Hong Kong, Vancouver has the best Cantonese food. I think our fellow blogger who said Richmond is better than Chinatown in Vancouver, is correct. Like SF, the best Chinese food is not in Chinatown. Try out Richmond and let us know.

    I found a very good Chinese restaurant in Amsterdam in May this year. May write a post if I still got the information.

    Have fun and travel safe!

    1. I have *just* returned! I didn’t make it to Richmond unfortunately but I hit many spots in Chinatown. Except for a couple of places, you can actually do better in Ottawa’s Byward Market or their Chinatown. I still enjoyed it all though.
