The Comfort Food Guide to Vancouver: Harvest’s Aromatic Curry Noodle Special

This series maps out our editors’ picks for Vancouver’s best and most legendary comfort foods. We encourage readers to steer us towards their favourites in the comments or by using the hashtag #ScoutYVR on social media.

Strathcona/Chinatown’s Harvest Community Foods has a reoccurring special that is well worth pouncing on every time it shows up on the board. It’s a bright and deeply flavourful curry situation full of ground chicken and udon noodles all done up with bok choy, charred cabbage, watermelon radish, shrooms and cilantro. While everything about this dish is comforting, it’s really the aroma that seals it. Stick your face over this beautiful thing and breathe.

The Chicago-style 'Wrigley Field' is my go-to at 'What's Up? Hot Dog!', but no matter the condiments the star is always the wiener.
