I previously wrote about a trip I took to Salt Lake City (which was wonderful), but now I’m back again to tell you about my most recent travel destination: Surrey! No, not the one in England. In British Columbia, Canada. I took a quick jaunt with a couple of friends a few weeks ago, and I’m finally getting around to posting about some restaurants you should visit.
If you find yourself in Surrey, BC, you’re in for a treat. This city is just south of the Fraser River and just north of the U.S./Canada border, making it an excellent Canadian excursion with some gorgeous views. As I came to discover, there are seven neighborhoods in Surrey: Fleetwood, Whalley, City Center, Guilford, Newton, Cloverdale, and South Surrey. I didn’t have a chance to visit every neighborhood, but I think I did a pretty fine job seeing a lot of the city.
Did you know Surrey is one of the most populous cities in British Columbia? I didn’t either. The city apparently saw a lot of growth in the 1980s and 1990s, but it slowed down slightly in the mid-2000s. Now, though, the population is projected to surpass that of Vancouver in the next 10-20 years! I found that to be kind of crazy. The cool thing is, though, that much of this growth is coming from people immigrating from other countries. As you can imagine, this has had a pretty neat impact on the local cuisine.
So, if you’re in Surrey and don’t know where you should eat dinner or grab a snack, I hope my next few posts will be helpful!
