In the mood for Japanese? Shizen Ya makes brown rice sushi with organic and OceanWise ingredients. You won't find rolls dripping with mayo or sauces, they let the fresh flavors speak for themselves.

For comforting noodles and rich broths, head to CHAU Veggie Express in East Vancouver. This vegetarian and vegan Vietnamese restaurant serves steamy bowls of deliciousness that are generous in size, and flavor.
When dining out with the kids, getting them to eat something healthy may be a challenge. The solve? Take them to Bandidas Taqueria.

This East Van restaurant is family-friendly and super affordable.
