UPDATE 9/2015 - Removed one, added one & modified another recommendation.
1) Going to do something I seldom do and suggest a regional chain for burgers and upscale full meals: White Spot, with locations throughout the Vancouver area, but mine upon which this recommendation is based is 5367 West Boulevard, just north of 41st Avenue.
Outstanding food for the price. Think old fashioned So Cal coffee shop food that has evolved over time.
Substitute sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo for regular. http://www.whitespot.com/
2) Nice dim sum lunches in nice atmosphere, east of Chinatown & Skid Road: http://www.pinkpearl.com/
In my opinion, dinner overpriced.
3) Adding Peaceful Restaurant - Excellent moderately-priced Chinese cuisine. Its weekday lunch specials great values. Dinner portions very generous for the price. Not recommending any particular dish. Happy to eat through the menu.
The sauces used in its wok dishes bring me here. Delicious. Well-deserved being featured on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives http://www.peacefulrestaurant.com
Three locations - one not far from Amtrak/Via/bus station.
