    I would love to see more restaurants use organic meats. I enjoy eating meat that has been raised organically and I find a lot of restaurants still use the large meat factories as meat suppliers (especially for chicken). I love the influx of more local ingredients used in restaurants and still think more could be used as well!

    Vancouver is really lacking when it comes to good, authentic Greek food.  Stepho’s is the equivalent of Jimmy the Greek, people, and the same quality can be found in mall food courts across Toronto.  What I’d really love to see downtown is an upscale Greek restaurant (white table cloths, fine dining type thing) similar to Acropol (on West Broadway).  Most of the Greek food in Vancouver is actually more middle Eastern influenced with Tabouleh and hummous in favour of Greek salad and tzatziki.

    I would love to see some sort of South Pacific restaurant – whether it is Fijian cuisine, or food from Papua New Guinea, or Samoan food!!

    Malay and Singaporean!  I have to leave the country every time I want authentic food from that region.  Mind you, I might just be missing a few gems.  Banana Leaf and Tropika just don’t cut it.

    Some really good authentic Cuban food.  Along with authentic not too sweet mojitos! Bring on the black beans, cheese, and rice! There’s a great little spot in New York….must remember what it’s called!

    I would love to see more CLASSIC diners around town. And I’m serious. Yes there have been some what  I would call “westcoast diners” (Lucy’s, SaveOnMeats, Acme Cafe) pop up over the last couple years, but places like the Thunderbird Grill, Bon’s on Broadway are few and far between. We need to have a few more greasy spoons, some dives come into the area just to balance out the wholesome, healthy lifestyle…then again, maybe i’m just watching too much of “Diners, Drive Ins and Dives” on the Food Network…

    I think I’d like to see more “good for you” restaurants, but having their food still tasting fantastic. Usually great tasting food is bad for you and bland food is healthy, I’d love to see more places that satisfy our tastes AND keep the pounds off! sometimes a salad just doesn’t cut it :P

    (Kathy Ko) I went to Hong Kong for the first time about five years ago and I really liked the fast food Chinese restaurant, Cafe de Coral!  I really want to see that in Vancouver!  They serve excellent coffee and food!  What customers do is line up and pay first, then they go up to the counter and get their food.  I think that’s how it worked.  Some menu items include noodle in soup and pork chop on rice.

    I’d like to see Cuban and Singaporean cuisines in Vancouver because they’re both amazingly flavourful and interesting.

    I like to see more “healthy” alternatives – food that is actually good for you.  As someone with dairy allergies, I have zero cholestrol.  But the average person over 40 starts to develop health issues resulting from a life time of eating greasy, deep fried and foods overloaded with butter, cheese and cream.  I’m not saying take all the good “bad stuff” off, but it would be nice for some restaurants to have more healthy alternatives.

    It would be nice to see restaurants that serve cuisine from European countries such as Croatia, Serbia, Russia, as there doesn’t seem to be many/if any of them in the city.  It’s great to try foods from many different cultures, and Vancouver is known for its diversity of cuisine.

    I’d like to see more healthier restaurants that promote organic food and make things like tofu taste good. 
    that’d be wicked!

    More offal forward restaurants. Use everything !

    Vancouver has a great selection of restaurants. There’s a type of restaurant for every palate. Finding them might not be easy but it’s definitely worth it. I would like to see more local and sustainable products. I love seeing descriptions of where the food came from because that means the restaurant cares about the environment. More items on the menu featuring the ocean-wise tag isn’t overdoing it either.

    Desserts! I’d love more restaurants that pay as much attention to the desserts as they do to the rest of the menu. Desserts made with sweet butter, good chocolate, fresh squeezed juices…no compromises on quality.

    I’d like to see more gluten-free food, done responsibly. So many restaurant professionals associate it with fad diets, when for people with celiac disease (like my partner), it’s a matter of life expectancy.

  • Liz (@ilovedeluscious)

    There are so many great cuisines already featured in Vancouver restaurants. I would love to see more homestyle Japanese cuisine (i.e. curries), in addition to the ramen and izakaya places out there, though.

    I would love to see more Bengali restaurants in Vancouver – there are only two currently (one in Surrey and one in East Vancouver) and one of those doesn’t even serve authentic Bengali food! The owners are Punjabi, so go figure. I’d love to see the delicious food of my ancestors represented in Vancouver – it’s only fitting in such a cultural melting pot!

    One that I have never seen or heard of before!  Why? Because I love trying new flavors and textures.  So this most likely falls into the smaller tribal groups or small towns/colonies in rural areas around the world.
