Cross the border into B.C. for farm-fresh produce, trend-setting pie, and the best Chinese food this side of Shanghai
A key thing to know about Richmond is that there are some tasty treats hiding in its big, glassy malls.

Eat it immediately to savor the contrast between its crisp exterior and its steamy, moist interior.
