About the restaurant
Included in the World’s 50 Best Discovery list and is MICHELIN Guide recommended, the inviting restaurant space is inspired by the principles of botany, and transports guests into a world where day blurs into night, summer into winter, and food and drink are plenty. Executive Chef Hector Laguna’s menu represents the botany of the Pacific Northwest region, where locally sourced ingredients are coupled with contemporary techniques. With an innovative cocktail bar and lab shaking up chemist-like libations, the experience reflects a new Pacific Northwest—one that has always been there, it was just waiting to be discovered.

This place was phenomenal! I was so impressed by the execution of flavours, techniques, and elevation of ingredients. Service was excellent and staff was attentive and superior. Can tell they pay close attention to customer experience! I would say the chef is definitely Michelin grade. Much better than many of the Western Michelin restaurants in my opinion. Highly recommend this place!

About the restaurant
LOCALLY MINDED. RESPONSIBLY RAISED

Housed in two of Vancouver’s most iconic buildings, Homer St Cafe and Bar is a contemporary restaurant set in the historic Homer Building and new Beasley building in Vancouver’s Yaletown district.
Classic comfort cooking takes center stage thanks to a fire engine red rotisserie that roasts all manner of proteins. It’s chicken that’s the star here: served in quarter, half or whole portions, accompanied by classic sides basted in jus.
A decidedly adventurous wine and cocktail list rounds out the menu. The restaurant features two spaces that consist of an open concept kitchen “Chef’s Bar” where one can get up close and personal with the culinary team, a semi private dining room with reclaimed factory windows, and bespoke seating complemented by antique tiling.

From food to service to ambiance and everything in between, Song by Kin Kao takes Thai cuisine and elevates it to another level. While new experiences are discovered every time we visit, old staple favorites are refreshed with layers of surprising complexity. Must try if you've never been, must come back to explore even more.

About the restaurant
Tucked into the upper story of a delightfully faded building in Chinatown, Kissa Tanto invites you into the little jewel that is the House of Plenty. First we will eat! Such supreme satisfaction we take from the delicate flavours of Japan and the warmth of ltalian cooking and feel it’s right to bring these culinary forces together to do a little dance. Why not? Soul mates are they not with their mutual love of noodles, rice, and proteins in their pure, delicious uncooked form? Think of the cool elegant crudo and cruda, crisp exotic salads, playful pastas, and rich, tender meats that we shall sink our teeth into. And whilst doing so, we will drink! We will wipe the dust off of the My Private Tokyo, inhale the burgundy scent of Barolo, sip tiny glasses of fine sake, and down chilly glasses of beer.

About the restaurant
Specializing in aburi, or flamed-seared, sushi, the act of applying flame directly and lightly searing sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the seafood. Miku owner, Seigo Nakamura, innovated the Aburi concept by crafting specialty sauces using non-traditional Japanese ingredients to pair with each type of fish.

“If you haven’t tried Tojo’s, you haven’t tried sushi.” The man invented most of the maki rolls we eat in North America. He is a true artist and wonderful person. His staff are trained to provide patrons with a beautiful and memorable dining experience. He hand picks the finest ingredients and personally prepares the dishes with the highest level of skill possible. If there is one restaurant in Vancouver you ever visit, this is the place.
