Reasons to Love Vancouver
Because we can eat takoyaki and potatoes on a stick and eel jerky and mini doughnuts all in one night.
Eating our way through the Night Market.
Yes, the annual Richmond Night Market features live dance performances and rows of too-cheap-to-pass-up tchotchkes, but the food o erings are always the main attraction. The brave test the limits of the human appetite, piling paper plates with crispy grilled squid, steaming bean-lled sh-shaped waes, and chicken karaage; the smart bring hungry friends with whom to share their deep-fried riches. It may not bill itself as a food festival but here, under the open sky, awaits a veritable United Nations of snacks—thai-style milk tea, matcha-ice-cream bao sandwiches, lamb kebabs and soft-shell crab tacos, all waiting to win your heart.
