We were looking forward to some great Chinese dining in Vancouver, and thanks to a Trip advisor article, found a winner. We were already on Main Street checking out Pulp Fiction used book store when we realized Banana Leaf was just down Broadway.  We took the 99 bus down (since it was still about 35degF and raining) and easily got...
