Vancouver on a platter

Some of my best memories from Canada involve food. I’m a sucker for trying out different cuisines. Just the perfect thing to do in a place like Vancouver that is a melting pot of diverse ethnicities and cultures. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the best on offer from an array…


Hopping on and off through Vancouver
