    bbqoaf I'm no connoisseur by any means (but I do love it and make a point to get a lot of it when the wife & I are out) so I can't say I've had salmon sushi, but I'm a sucker for ahi tuna. I could eat my weight in that stuff. I've gotten a dinner of ahi sashimi, very rare, (light sear, red everywhere else) it was indescribably good.

    We did Miku for Sushi and Joe Forte's for seafood. Both were awesome!

    Memphis Blues was actually on our list but we're only here one more night and I'm not sure we're going out. I'll mention it to the group. Thanks for confirming it's good!

    Huskee agreed, sushi is pretty awesome. Bright red, fresh, wild, pacific salmon served raw and cold smoked would be part of my last meal. Can't beat Van for sushi, fresh fish and a huge Asian population make it incredible.

    Memphis Blues they have several locations but if you can make their Commercial Drive location it's their original and best in my opinion. That's about the only real BBQ joint we have that I know off...And I haven't traveled to many BBQ joints so I can safely say it's the best I've had (but I have no idea where that ranks real-world)
    And yes sushi is everywhere and most of it is good but there are the bad ones too, so take a quick visit to Yelp UrbanSpoon or DineHere.com to check the restaurant out. Keep in mind lots of sushi snobs might lower rate a place so I usually scan the comments to see why it was rated where it was.

    And yes you can't go wrong with a seafood place!

    bbqoaf Sushi you say? Now I'm wishing Pit Boss would've taken me along. I love sushi like nobody's business. I like it better than wine.

    Pit Boss I have no experience with bbq or steak in Van, but my two cents is that I would stick to fresh seafood in Vancouver, it's amazing, one of the best sushi cities on the planet. Not sure if the wild salmon are in season yet, if they are I would eat nothing but that.

    Coincidentally I'm in Vancouver at this very moment. Can you suggest any great barbecue joints here? or steak...

    Will do and thank you!
    And I dunno, I think you guys have a harder time in the ER. I just whistle them in, often times with limited information and then leave that mess for you to clean up!!
    Also I don't have to deal with the obnoxious midnight callers for more than a couple of minutes (I take my perks where I can!). Thanks to you and the rest of the staff for not going too hard on me when I do!!

    Not so old timey, but same idea yup! Though I have met people that worked out of an old Caboose that followed the workers..
    I live in an Atco trailer, either my own or in camp depending on the situation. Depending on the work I sit on site in my trailer or in a truck and make sure people have required tickets to work on site, and keep track of who's on and off site so we know when the bad stuff happens who to go looking for. And yea standing by in case someone gets hurt. Right now I live and sleep on site so if someone gets hurt at night I get woken up. But that usually means overtime so it's all good!!
    So it's a whole lot of sitting around entertaining myself! I'm "old" now (27 hah!) and been at this long enough I don't pick up truck jobs anymore, there's no internet, they're cramped (I'm 6'3" and while a Ford Super Duty is plenty big in the cab that gets smaller and smaller as you approach 12 hours) and I like being able to use washroom facilities whenever I want!

    Welcome Traumallama! We're glad you're here. The first thing I though when I saw your avatar was "paramedic" so it's very fitting.
