Traveling to the Greater Vancouver area? Be sure to stop at these five places in Richmond to grab a bite to eat, or a refreshing drink before taking off to your final destination.
Prata-Man Singaporean Cuisine
9060 Capstan Way
For absolutely traditional Hainanese Chicken, Prata-Man is the place to go. The definition of ‘hole-in-the-wall,’ Prata-Man is hidden at the end of a small plaza on Garden City Way. The specialty here is Hainanese chicken, which is essentially a deboned, poached chicken served cold, with a bowl of clear, gingery broth and a bowl of chicken-oil rice. Enjoy this with a side of their skewered meats (chicken, pork or beef) and some house-made roti and curry to round out the meal.
Flying Beaver Bar & Grill
4760 Inglis Drive
The Flying Beaver Bar & Grill is a bustling bar located in the Harbour Air seaplane terminal. What makes this place unique is the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Patrons can watch seaplanes take off and land right on the middle arm of the Fraser River, while enjoying a range of food and drink specials. Not sure what you should eat? The halibut tacos with blackened halibut, mango salsa, chipotle aioli and coleslaw are a crowd favourite. If you’re a fan of wings, on Wednesdays after 4:30 p.m., you can get them for 60 cents each , along with $5 drink specials including sleeves of Sleeman honey brown lager and the sunset cocktail, consisting of raspberry-infused vodka and 7-Up.
