Richmond, BC Restaurants
Richmond is most famous for its exceptional Asian cuisine – it has been said that Richmond restaurants serve the best Chinese food outside China. And Chinese food expert David Chan, who has dined at over 6,300 Chinese restaurants, has said that he would locate "North America's Chinese food capital" in Richmond, BC! But Richmond is much more than that. It boasts some 800 restaurants offering everything from burgers to banh mi.
Local restaurants have no shortage of fresh, local food to include on their menus. Richmond began life as fishing and farming community in the 19th century and more than a third of the city’s area is still farmland. The Garden City’s 200+ farms are best known for producing exceptional berries – mainly cranberries and blueberries; and as for fishing, the historic seaside neighbourhood of Steveston is home to Western Canada’s largest fishing fleet and a popular Public Fish Sales Float.
If you are looking for fine dining or family friendly and casual, Richmond has what you are hungry for. And it’s a place where you’ll have the opportunity to try new foods that you’ve probably never heard of before!
