Tacofino opened up their new Gastown location recently, so Wicca and I plus a fellow blogger went to check it out. Tacofino Gastown consists of their takeout Burrito Bar and their sit-down Tacobar. We tried their Tacobar on a chilly Tuesday night.
Vancouver Instagram-famous chef to the design community Juno Kim (@jun0k) has started a “Monday Night Dinner Series” at 33 Acres Brewing. My interest was piqued with last week’s premier dinner that featured Wild Mushroom Risotto and Pork Belly:
Note: This is “episode 2” cuz I missed the first “episode” 😛 Unfortunately no re-runs so you gotta experience it live!
Bao Bei has been open for 5 years and we’ve never tried it until Wicca’s friend came to town recently and gave us an excuse to eat somewhere nice on a weeknight 😀 We decided on an “Asian with a twist” theme that night, with other possibilities including Pidgin or Bambudda. Luckily, we were able to get into Bao Bei without too much trouble. In a nutshell, our food experience here ranged from ok, to good, to awesome. We were surprised and enlightened by their take on “modern Chinese”.
Note about the photos: it’s super-dark in there. I tried to do the best I could with the photos! Hope it still gives you a good sense of the food.
