It has a pedigree that traces back to an original location in Beijing from 1864, but the latest outpost in Vancouver proves that this place lost any of its luster. They're best known for its superlatively crispy and juicy duck. Delicious as the signature fowl may be, there is plenty more: a bevy of other delicacies are on offer, including bird's nest, sea cucumber and even a whole king crab if you're up for a splurge.

St. Lawrence Restaurant

There is so much to love about St. Lawrence with its textured walls, mosaic-tiled floor, antiques and open kitchen. A hit ever since opening, this charming Québécois bistro shares a true sense of place—it's even named for the region's mighty river. Sit close enough to Chef/owner Jean-Christophe Poirier's kitchen to experience the heady aromas of his rustic and hearty French-Canadian cooking.
