Lower Mainland MeFites: I'm looking for a place to have dinner with my brother tonight somewhere between the Tsawassen ferry terminal and YVR. Neither of us are from the area. What are your favourite Richmond-area eating spots? Difficulty factor: I'm vegan and gf; he is a dedicated carnivore.

I'm taking the ferry to the mainland and have a few hours to eat before catching a red-eye from YVR. Other than the vegan/gf thing, we like pretty much anything and are pretty adventurous food-wise, and are especially fond of Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, and Indian. A nice-ish sit-down place would be better than a fast food/food truck option, but we're open to suggestions of the latter if they are otherwise awesome. I'm OK with places that don't specifically cater to my dietary restrictions, so long as they are willing to make some substitutions in dishes (so things prepared fresh is important). I'm not celiac (gf is a choice not a necessity for me), so having a completely celiac-friendly kitchen is not a requirement. Brother would definitely prefer places that are not specifically vegan (though he'll buckle down and forgo the meat if the food is genuinely good). Budget is definitely in the middle range (i.e. most entrees under $20). We're driving, so can get pretty much anywhere, but would like to stay in the general vicinity of YVR.
Feed me, please, MeFi!
