HEY! I just tried that new stir fry restaurant that opened up on Terminal Ave in Nanaimo. It's called Island Stir Fry. It was AWESOME!!
It's like a salad bar, but you choose noodles and/or rice, then fill up a big bowl with tofu and countless varieties of veggies. Then you choose a sauce (most are vegan!) and they grill it up right in front of you!

It was delicious, made to order, healthful, fast, and inexpensive!! My boyfriend and I BOTH ate (until we were STUFFED) for only $8.95 each!!

If you live in Nanaimo or visit often, CHECK. IT. OUT!!

HAY, my name is Chris - I'm a 22 year old living in my new city of Vancouver (UBC area to be precise.) I'm loving how friendly everybody is. I've had so many conversations with complete strangers - not like it is in the U.K.!

Potluck sounds like awesome - I've never been to one but I love cooking.

Anyway, just to say hi to the pretty people of the B.C. V.B.

Hiya! I'm coming to Vancouver to study at UBC for the rest of this year/a bit of next year! Preeeeeeeeeeeeetty excited!

There seems to be SO much veg*n deliciousness happening around Vancouver compared to where I'm from, but is there anything particular on campus at UBC that anyone knows of? And are there any good animal welfare groups I can get involved with while I'm over there? I'm really keen to get the most out of my time there so I'm 100% open to suggestions!

Hey there! Welcome to Veggieboards and to Vancouver!

Here's a nice blog post I like that covers a lot of the delicious places to eat here: http://vegansaurus.com/post/3566149560

And for food on campus: http://blogs.ubc.ca/healthyminds/201...ats-on-campus/

As for animal welfare groups there are two that come to mind immediately.

The first is Stop UBC Animal Research: http://stopubcanimalresearch.org/

And the second is Liberation BC: http://liberationbc.org/

Both are filled with pretty amazing people. Hope that helps!

Nope! I'm originally from Prince George, and have resided in the Okanagan for about 4-5 years now. Where abouts are you?

I've just found by accident reading one of the local papers a bakery in Richmond that not only makes regular cupcakes but VEGAN ones too!!! The name of it is Bell's Bake Shop, and their website is: www.bellsbakeshop.com. I fully intend to check it out next week.
