local Viet- asian suburb

Hi all on the forum, does vancouver have a local viet- asian suburb, all cities have a "China Town" some what plastic in nature, but most have suberbs of Viet -asian , where there are noodle houses, Pho shops and so on.

In Sydney Australia we have Cabbramatta, a great mix of south east asian cultures, food to die for.

So Vancouverites where is yours???

My hairdresser is Vietnamese and I've asked her about this. She said that they don't really have a strong, centralized Vietnamese community. However, I think you will find that there are pockets of Vietnamese culture/cuisine around the city.

The main strip is on Kingsway between Fraser and Victoria. Pockets on all the main streets on the eastside, including on Hastings between Commercial and Renfrew which has 10 Pho restaurants.

We just stayed at four points by Sheraton in Richmond. Off no 3 rd and alderbridge. Def not china town. But every restuRant or business seemed to have English in subtitles. Very nice clean area. Also, since not near typical tourist areas, not a single homeless person.

It is worthwhile checking out some of the different cuisines in the many small restaurants on Denman. The food of many nations are represented there.
