Does your list of go-to restaurants need a makeover? Try some new eats—from an oyster bar to all-day breakfast

Poké fever just got hotter in Vancouver with the arrival of Pokérrito. Getting a scoop of the raw fish salad has never been easier with the opening of this sleek, Japanese-inspired eatery serving a variety of poké in customized burritos, bowls and salads. 558 Dunsmuir Street

Jam Café
Regardless of the time of day, it’s never too late for breakfast, especially at Jam Café, famous for its pulled pork pancakes and seven varieties of eggs Benedict served all day. Housed in the former Medina Café, Jam Café’s vintage interior adds a touch of rustic charm to the B.C. breakfast experience. 556 Beatty Street

Fanny Bay Oyster Bar & Shellfish Market
B.C.’s succulent Fanny Bay oysters, typically found at grocery stores across town, are  ready to eat at this new establishment. With picnic-style dishes featuring a mélange of seafood varieties, the city’s first tide-to-table oyster bar is a shellfish heaven. 762 Cambie Street

Dixie’s BBQ
Added to the handful of barbecue options in Vancouver is the newest “authentic” Texas BBQ eatery. Expect “home-style” sides and a less saucy recipe of ribs and brisket than other Southern varieties. 337 East Hastings Street

Anh + Chi
What started out as a pop-up noodle shop has evolved into a modern and sophisticated take on old favourites by a third-generation Vietnamese-Canadian brother and sister team. “To share food is to love in Vietnamese culture” is the philosophy behind this new restaurant formerly known as the iconic Pho Hoang Vietnamese Restaurant for 33 years. 3388 Main Street
