Bao Bei

Vancouver, Canada

163 Keefer St, Vancouver V6A 1X4, Canada
A nostalgic yet modern restaurant in historic Chinatown. The room exudes warmth with rich woods, pastels and chalky colours under soft lights, replacing typical Chinese eatery elements (banquet style seating, fluorescent lighting, big round Lazy Susans)– the space is decidedly un-polished, in keeping with a mix of pastoral Shanghainese and distinctly feminine French Colonial. Just as the menu incorporates elements of the cuisine she ate growing up, the intermingling of past and present–vintage curios and family memorabilia, such as a massive, old photo of her dad’s teenage rock band–add to the sense of experiencing the owner’s playfulness and personal history.
