A new culinary destination, Richmond, British Columbia, in Canada, was named on Eater’s annual Top Places to Eat list. The food authority website named 19 destinations around the world, many expected, but some not so much.
“It’s no secret to locals that Richmond has a diverse and strong culinary scene,” said Nancy Small, chief executive officer, Tourism Richmond. “We also know the 800-plus restaurants in the city can be overwhelming. So, when food and travel authorities like Eater and New York Times give Richmond their seal of approval, it legitimizes what we already know to a much wider, global audience.”
Richmond offers a strong Asian culinary scene, with its own dumpling trail, but beyond the dumplings, Richmond also gives travelers a wide range of culinary experiences and flavors to choose from, including Persian cuisine, bakeries and more.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by Eater as one of the most dynamic food cities in the world,” remarked Small. “We invite everyone to discover our culinary scene, and for locals to try something new, or rediscover old favorites.”
