In the Area
Bordering downtown’s eastern edge, Chinatown was one of North America’s original havens of Chinese culture and remains a vibrant Vancouver original. The place to start your exploration is the Keefer Bar for handcrafted apothecary-style “prescriptions” with house made tinctures, bitters, syrups and teas. The small plates at Bao Bei are more than precious, mixing the tastes of Taiwan, Shanghai and Sichuan provinces in a menu that makes it one of the busiest spots around. It’s worth the wait for the shao bing, sesame flatbread with cumin lamb sirloin, pickled red onion, green pepper and salted chilies. In Gastown, Vancouver’s neighborhood of restored heritage buildings and hip hangouts, stroll the cobblestone streets to Alibi Room, where the cool crowd sidles up for 50-plus locally brewed pours. For dinner, House Guest is a casual supper club that feels like a friendly dinner party — only with infinitely better food. Gourmet faves include mac n’ cheese croquettes, confit chicken wings and scallops in a beer jus.
