Just moved to Princeton, looking for oysters

I'm looking for the best oysters within an hour and a half's drive, preferrably under an hour. Any recommendations?

Anyone know where to find elderberries (fresh or frozen)?

Title pretty much says it all, I've had no luck calling around and I need them for a soup. Any ideas? Thanks.

Anywhere that sells decent butter for a decent price?

I've never liked it, it has a bad flavour and tastes slightly rancid. I also find that it imparts its substandard qualities to anything that you bake with it.

Great, thanks for the replies. I'll start with the foothills and see from there.

Does anyone know where I can get some good butter for a reasonable price? I'm pretty tired of the crap that lucerne and fraser valley put out, but would rather not pay an insane amount. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know where to find this done well? I just came across it and it sounds delicious. Supposedly it is pork belly in some kind of red sauce. Thanks

What does everyone munch with their coffee?

So I am looking for the best snack to have with my afternoon cup. Thus far I have been through all the normal cookies and cakes, but the thing that I have found that actually best compliments the flavor is dates. Curious as to what others enjoy ...

Any deals in Downtown Van tonight (Wednesday)?

So I am going to be downtown with a couple people tonight and was wondering if there were any particularly good deals on. I have eaten at most of the places downtown that I want to at this point, so I am running low on new places to try, but am always up for a prix fixe menu on special. Anyone know of anything? Thanks

What would you make with lobster, if it wasn't so expensive? (since it isn't right now!)

souffle or mac n' cheese

Best Restaurant Breakfast in the U.S.?

mmm, the smoked sablefish at Barney Greengrass' is outstanding, but as far as best breakfast places go my vote is for M Henry's in Chicago

Looking for a special meal or 2 for visiting foodie parent (Van)

Fuel is great, but I am looking for something more special, something different, perhaps the Vancouver equivalent of Philly's Le Bec Fin or even DC's Duangrat's, is there such a thing here? (yes, I realize Duangrats and Le Bec Fin are 2 completely different places, but cuisine and atmosphere are of no consideration, just an out of this world meal) As much as I hate to ask for such a subjective suggestion, the best meal in the area, whether it costs $5 or $500

Looking for a special meal or 2 for visiting foodie parent (Van)

I come from a family serious about food. I have lived in Vancouver for several years and am relatively familiar with most of the obvious choices, the problem is so is my dad. I am looking for a meal he will remember, something different. None of us are opposed to dive spots nor are we opposed to formal restaurants, just looking for that memorable meal. He doesn't drink much, certainly no cocktails, but a good wine list will not pass unnoticed. No place overly modern or trendy (unless deservedly so). As far as food tastes in Vancouver go, he likes Vij's, loved the old Tojo's, loves Japadog, if you need more just ask, but I think thats it for Vancouver so it'll have to be elsewhere. Maybe a great place for whole fish in Richmond? West is a little bland. Maybe Maenam for lunch one day? There was also that northern chinese place that popped up here a month or 2 ago, my sister and I went and it was delish. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone!
