In the fast-moving world of culinary, chefs often have multiple projects on the go. For Top Chef Canada hopeful Mark Singson, this means going from launching the highly lauded AnnaLena in Vancouver to opening his own catering company, to being a step closer to opening his own restaurant. 

We have no doubt that he knows good food, so we're more than happy to take his recommendations on where to eat in Vancouver.

Catch Singson on the newest season of  Top Chef Canada on Food Network Canada starting Sunday, April 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. 


I don't really eat breakfast, but if I did, I would get ramen or noodles.




There are so many options, but Fat Mao Noodles is really close to my apartment. I usually order the house-made soft tofu with century egg and hot and sour pork soup with thin rice sheet noodles.




Where I go for dinner really depends on the mood. If I want to wine and dine, I go to L'Abattoir. If I want to snack, which is most of the time, I go to Zakkushi. They serve food on sticks grilled over charcoal. Guu Garden has nice small plates as well. I like any place that has good plates that are easy to share.
