Dix BBQ and Brewery (Vancouver Downtown)

Dix BBQ and Brewery (web site, 871 Beatty Street, Vancouver, phone 604-682-2739) is a large restaurant/pub located very close to BC Place Stadium and GM Place Stadium in downtown Vancouver. The kitchen handled our group of 17 people flawlessly, and we were satisfied with our entrees such as Whole Chicken Breast ($12.95, pictured below) and their famous pulled pork sandwich. Their in-house brewed beers such as Red Truck Ale are some of the best in town.

Excellent Sushi Japanese Restaurant (Downtown)

Excellent Sushi Japanese Restaurant (address: 1157 Granville Street, Vancouver, phone: 604-687-0038, or 604-681-0009) offers combinations of sushi and other Japanese items at rock-bottom prices. Enjoy a combination including miso soup, California roll, chicken teriyaki, noodles or rice, green salad, and tempura, for an unbelievable price of only $6.00 plus tax. No kidding! This restaurant is a good find for travelers or students on a budget, if you’re willing to venture to this somewhat rougher-on-the-edges part of Granville Street that is only a couple blocks from the trendy Yaletown district.

Restaurant at Halifax Airport (Nova Scotia, Canada)

While visiting the Halifax Airport (web site) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, be sure to drop by the food court located in the centre of the airport, and enjoy some fast food before your flight. Pictured below is the Cajun Chicken Wrap with a side Caesar salad which was $8.48 before tax, which I purchased from the Brisket Deli. After eating, take the elevator up to the airport observation deck and sit in the comfy chairs while watching planes take-off and land through gigantic floor-to-ceiling windows. The observation deck is also a popular plane-watching destination for families with children and can be accessed even without a boarding pass.
