Richmond Dining: Where To Eat In Richmond, British Columbia
Looking for Richmond Dining Recommendations?
My late parents used to live in Richmond and I lived there for some time growing up as well. After I moved away to California I often go back and visit my parents. One of my favourite things to do in Richmond is to eat. As a suburb of Vancouver with a large Asian population, you can always count on finding some of the best Asian restaurants. This post is a list of my favourite Richmond dining destinations.

HELPFUL GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS
- Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
- Accommodations: I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. Hotels.com offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
- Get up to $40 off your first Air Bnb stay by using this code!
- Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.
Usually, I eat sushi in Vancouver but I decided to try out Sushi Hachi after reading many positive reviews online. It’s a Mom and Pop place run by a husband and wife team. It’s very small in size and reservations are recommended. Since I was dining solo one night, I decided to pop in and eat at the bar.
Miso soup with fish chunks. Yum!
Saba (mackerel) battera

If you’re looking for quality fish in Richmond, this is your best bet. My other recommendation is Ajisai in Vancouver.
Globe YVR is a restaurant inside the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. Since I was staying at the hotel, I ate at the restaurant. The food was great and they have excellent floor to ceiling views of the planes landing. Fairmont Hotels always have great restaurants and bars. My friend Dan joined me for dinner and we had the prix fixe meal. Weekend brunch is quite popular from what I hear. One of the perks of eating here is they will reimburse your parking since parking at the airport is expensive. If you take the Skytrain, I think they will even reimburse your fare.
Here are some photos of our dishes:
A tasty pre-dinner cocktail made with honey from the Fairmont’s own bees
A mushroom veloute
Pork belly and scallop!
Damn! Now I’m hungry!
