Hours: Daily 11am-10pm

Amid the hectic bustle and modernist aesthetic of Tropika, Vancouver's favorite spot for classic Malaysian-Thai food, waiters whisk by with heaping plates of crab legs and rich soups trailing steam. K.L. Crab (a.k.a chili crab) is the celebrity dish on the menu, with good reason—crushed, dried shrimp sauce coats the enormous Dungeness crab, which is fried at an ultra-high temperature. The brittle shrimp coating gives way with a crunch to succulently tender crab meat. Tropika's chili crab is reason enough to travel to Vancouver.
