Commercial

Vancouver’s hip east side neighbourhood, Commercial Drive is a mash of immigrant and alternative lifestyles. Dubbed the city’s “Little Italy,” the Drive has its share of amazing pizza and pasta places among the many other ethnic influences — Caribbean, Cuban, Mexican, Japanese, and Middle Eastern cuisines are all well represented. The Drive also plays host to Vancouver’s hippies and forward thinkers, making it a fascinating eclectic region to explore.
