Canada – A hidden gem for food lovers

In the heart of Vancouver, nestled between the bustling neighbourhoods of Mount Pleasant and Riley Park, lies a hidden gem known as Cambie Village. An area that grants convenient access from most parts of the city and international travellers from YVR, it’s no wonder that this charming community has been a haven for food lovers.

Used as the perfect runway to watch the sun dip below the mountains and cast a golden hue amongst downtown’s skyscrapers, the neighbourhood comes alive with aromas that reflect the city’s diverse population.

Recognized as a 1-star Michelin restaurant, iDen & Quanjude Beijing Duck House is known for its Peking roast duck and its long-standing heritage that dates back to 1864 when it’s first outpost opened in China during the Qing Dynasty.

A couple blocks up is one of Canada’s most well-known and recognized restaurants, Vij’s. Mixing Indian influences with locally produced ingredients, Chef Vikram Vij has managed to remain in the ‘Top lists’ of restaurants in the country.

Newcomer, Black Walnut is a new premium steak and seafood restaurant, offering a curated menu and a beautiful raw bar for oysters, crudos and ceviche. A first-time venture for a crew of people who hail from the construction business, they have partnered with local Chef Josh Gonneau to create bistro-style dishes in a modern dining room with eye-catching details.

Established favourites including Rain or Shine ice cream and Potluck Hawker Eatery continue to prove why the city’s Cambie corridor is one to keep an eye out for culinary enthusiasts.
