Essential Asian eating in Vancouver / Victoria?

Might wanna check out Hapa Izakaya too! I know you were thinking of passing up on the Japanese but it's definitely worth a visit. Also, try to do dim sum at Sun Sui Wah on Main and get the mango pancakes or the baked tapioca for dessert.... And definitely do Vij's! Maenam is the only Thai I've liked so far in Vancouver... If I were you I'd skip the Thai food here.

You've got some good rec's here... I agree with Le Crocodile, Cioppino's and La Buca, but my vote would be for La Quercia. Pied a Terre seems to get good reviews but I thought it was just okay. If you just want a casual French bistro, I've always had good meals at Les Faux Bourgeois and the prices are very reasonable. Also if you can fit in Vij's (Indian fusion), do so! Make sure you get the lamb popsicles!! Our out-of-towners always crave it when they go back home... Most of them don't even like Indian food :)

Barolo Ristorante, Lark, Lola, Dahlia or Poppy?

So... After (finally) deciding to eat at either Corson or S&S, I tried to make reservations and couldn't get in to either. Bummer... The guy at S&S highly recommended Harvest Vine so that's where we ended up. We had the beet salad, seared foie gras, short ribs, grilled octopus and finally the cuttlefish with squid ink pasta. Fantastic food, great service and atmosphere! Corson, S&S and Poppy will be on the short list for our next SEA visit :)

Thanks so much for all your advice!

Serious pie= just serious OK

My husband planned a "best thing I ever ate" tour of Seattle and the chantrelle pizza was one of the items on our list to try. Gotta say, we were a bit disappointed... I mean it was good, but not "best thing I ever ate" good. More chantrelles would have definitely upped the ante.

Barolo Ristorante, Lark, Lola, Dahlia or Poppy?

Okay, upon browsing the other posts there seems to be a few more contenders for dinner. We have a car and are willing to travel... Would Corson Building, Book Bindery or Sitka and Spruce trump Poppy?

Thanks for the advice! I will try Poppy out (and possibly Lark... then off to Lola for brunch, lol) and report back. We'll also be checking out Serious Pie and Salumi for lunch :D Hopefully the lines won't drive us away!

Hey fellow Chowhounders,

My husband and I are heading to Seattle for the weekend and want some good eats for dinner and we're trying to decide between Barolo, Lark, Lola, Dahlia or Poppy... What are your thoughts?

Thanks,
Vancouver Chowhounder
