Hop aboard the SkyTrain for a quick scenic trip to the River Market at New Westminster Quay, home to myriad casual tastes. Check out modernist Wild Rice for inventive Chinese, including bowls of house-made Chinese barbecue pork or addictive spicy chicken kung po with twice-cooked peanuts. At Re-Up BBQ, indulge in house-smoked ribs and the region’s most celebrated pulled-pork sandwich. Savour spectacular Thai, such as fried oysters, satays or Chiang Mai curry chicken, at Longtail Kitchen. Find authentic Italian sandwiches at La Grotta del Formaggio, grab a pint and a clubhouse at the Paddlewheeler Pub, or sip a quick cappuccino at Tre Galli Gelato Caffè, all against a backdrop of working boats moored on the Fraser River.
