Surf & Turf specializes in fresh-from-the-market seafood and meats, which are prepared quickly with seasonal ingredients and local produce. Divided into lunch and dinner, the menu presents several mix-and-match options, such as the skewer meal, which invites diners to ceremoniously vote for any six meat kebabs, plus a fountain drink ($10). Offerings include souvlaki chicken, tandoori turkey, and salmon. Surf & Turf can coat its skewered selections with a bevy of glazes, protecting short ribs or prawns from UV rays with a carapace of teriyaki sauce or extra-strength apple barbecue sauce. A rotating selection of seasonal teas stands by to slake thirsts and lubricate throats ($2).

In Browns Socialhouse, backed leather stools and cushy booths flank tables. On the walls, oversize illuminated signs reading EAT and Liquor shine brightly against the cozily lit dining room. Mixing social-house comfort with a contemporary edge, the decor at Browns Socialhouse mimics the style of its food. Chefs hand cut and double-cook fries to pile alongside their steak sandwich or housemade, hand-pressed burgers. They've got an eye for detail—for example, they char-grill their dry-aged pepperoni before piling it atop pizzas with pepperoncinis and asiago. The selection ranges from international favorites—such as street tacos and shrimp-and-chicken pad thai, among other—to updated pub eats, such as fish ‘n’ chips featuring pacific halibut dunked in a Sapporo beer batter. Every Saturday, Sunday, and on holidays, the chefs set their roosters to crow earlier so they can rise and mix up batches of their own hollandaise for brunches. They crack only free-range eggs for their brunch dishes, which include corned-beef hash and prosciutto eggs benedict with goat cheese.

Seven varieties of mushrooms imported from Japan flavour Shang Noodle House's signature Red Reishi Ramen dish, each adding nutrients which can help bolster the immune system, metabolism, and other vital functions. The kitchen's focus on healthy eating continues with its hand-pulled wheat ramen noodles, vitamin C-packed mango juice, and free-range chicken dim sum. More than 24 varieties of ramen, from traditional to fried, round out the menu alongside barbecued pork belly, duck, and cuttlefish. Bamboo accents and contemporary art lend a modern air to Shang's Richmond and New Westminster eateries, which are part of the Kirin Restaurant Group. The latter location features a conveyor belt that rolls chef specials fresh out of the kitchen and carts back origami-folded thank-you notes from sated diners.

At Hog Shack Cook House the pit masters smoke their meats for 6 to 24 hours to bring out the tangy flavour that characterizes authentic Kansas City barbecue. Though taking its cue from KC, the menu plays host to a wide variety of dishes including Cajun chicken penne and pulled pork tacos. Traditional beef ribs and house-smoked brisket keep things classic as servers dish out heaping portions and bartenders fill glasses with one of more than 70 craft beers. By keeping the suds flowing, sauces slathered, and tuning the TVs to the big game or ultimate infomercial reel, the barbecue gurus foster a festive environment while adhering to the sensibilities of Southern and Midwestern hospitality.

Bob's Chowder Bar & BBQ Salmon has its origins at a farmers' market. The bright-red eatery's owners, Bob and Babs, both worked the market on Saturdays—Babs selling jam and Bob grilling salmon and serving chowder. Soon enough, market goers couldn't get enough of Bob's chowder, so Bob and Babs decided to open their own full-time chowder bar.

In addition to Bob's addictive New England-style clam chowder, the restaurant serves up grilled wild salmon, chicken strips, and fish tacos, and oyster burgers. Crisp and flaky fish and chips are made with Alaskan cod doused in a secret batter and fried until golden.

Affable servers deliver freshly minted eats, such as shrimp and chicken pad thai and juicy hickory burgers, late into the evening in order to accommodate customers’ varied schedules and hunger cravings after midnight Jazzercise classes. When outside temperatures take a turn for the balmy, a spacious seasonal patio enables alfresco dining accompanied by cool sea breezes and the stares of pizza-craving clouds.
