Recommendation

RecommendationVancouver's chefs recommend Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie for dinner, drinks, or dessert as part of Dirt Road Travels' Vancouver, Canada city guide. They love the family-style petit plats chinois, the tasting menu and the cocktails at 163 Keefer Street in in the Chinatown-Strathcona neighbourhood.

Matt's Take

“Bao Bei is a really great cafe that’s become a destination restaurant. It’s run by a lady, Tannis, who spent a lot of time in Vancouver’s Chinatown grocery shopping when she was growing up. She brought back this really modern Chinese restaurant that does everything exceptionally.”

It’s a super fun room that’s beautifully designed, and it's got amazing food and is a mix of the new and the old styles. They’ve got this older Chinese lady that makes all their dumplings by hand, and they have this amazing bar and cocktail program.

So Bao Bei is really refined, and for anyone who comes from out of town to Vancouver if I had one restaurant to take them to it would be there.”

Tannis' Vancouver Musts

"I've got so many picks! Breakfast is Bows X Arrows, lunch is Ask For Luigi, Birds & The Beets, Au Comptoir, Kirin, Hoang Yen, Kokomo, Sal y Limón, Dosanko and Laksa King. Dinner would be at St. Lawrence, Cinara, Kingyo, Ajisai or Savio Volpe."
