The week's top dish from Eater Vancouver, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog. This week we've got a sneak peek look around Vikram Vij's new restaurant My Shanti before it opens, a photo essay on the madness of this year's Richmond Night Market, a great map showing the best wine-by-the-glass programmes in the city and more. Enjoy!
SOUTH SURREY— One of the city's most anticipated openings, TV chef Vikram Vij's My Shanti should be finally opening its doors this weekend. Sure, you'll have to go all the way out to South Surrey but this culinary tour around Vikram's favourite places in India - and beyond - should be worth it. [EVAN]
RICHMOND—The other big news this week is the opening of Richmond's night market, thousands made their way there to check out this year's Magical Candyland Theme and snap up this summer's must-eat Puffy Crunch Corn Ice-Canes. [EVAN]
ALL ACROSS THE CITY—For those days when you don't plan to sink a whole bottle but just want the perfect glass of wine, may we present a carefully curated map of eleven excellent value wine-by-the-glass winners across Vancouver. [EVAN]
HEAR HIM ROAR—And if you need something to read while you sip, try this: a chef's manifesto from ex-Top Chef Canada contestant Curtis Luk from the all-vegetarian Parker restaurant. [EVAN]
