Readers Recommend: Culinary-class restaurants in Vancouver, Canada

August 13, 2011

On a recent visit to Vancouver, Canada, we came across this gem. Vancouver Community College has a culinary arts department that teaches students to be chefs. It has two restaurants: J.J.'s and Wild Salmon. We ended up eating lunch at one and dinner at the other in one day. The food was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable. I had a wonderful sunflower seed-encrusted halibut for $11, and my wife had a fantastic salmon steak, also $11. The menu changes daily. If you call ahead, they can tell you what is fresh that day. They also have a full wine list.

Wild Salmon, (604) 443-8352; J.J.'s Fine Dining, (604) 443-8479, Vancouver Community College, 250 W. Pender St., Vancouver, http://www.vcc.ca
