Behind all the high-rises that make up Vancouver’s skyline, the North Shore mountains tower like a gateway to Vancouver’s wild backyard. Whenever we’re tired of city crowds, we turn to North Vancouver as a perfect escape. Whether you’re hankering for a view-top hike followed by some vegan bites or yearning for a peaceful spot to enjoy some chocolate pastries and coffee, everything you’re looking for is on the North Shore.
Aly Velji designed restaurant Foreign Concept with a nod to the past. Foreign Concept may have just opened this past December, but the restaurant feels steeped in history. Fitting, given that the menu by chef and owner Duncan Ly takes its cues from a specific time and place: colonial Vietnam. Ly had tasked designer Alykhan Velji with creating a space that reflected the foodâ€”â€œa nod to the Asian, but not over the top,â€?
The expanded space will hopefully lessen the lineups—but either way these noodle are worth waiting for. Even if you haven’t tried ramen (and if you haven’t, you’re seriously missing out) you’ve seen the huge lineups outside these Japanese noodle shops around town—Jinya‘s old downtown location was no exception. Even though the 40-seat space was a bit out of the way at the far end of Robson Street by BC Place people had no qualms with queueing up for its take on this traditional soup.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
