Vancouver – YVR
Tannis Ling, Joël Watanabe and Alain Chow of Bao Bei tighten their hold on Chinatown with this tucked-away second-floor spot that evokes a 1960s Tokyo jazz club. The My Private Tokyo cocktail, a play on an Amaretto sour, delights with its plum salt rim. Chef Watanabe’s cooking marries Japanese and Italian: Chewy housemade tajarin egg noodles, tossed in butter and miso-cured egg yolk, are topped with a medley of mushrooms, including shiitake and porcini. Tiramisu features whipped soy and plum-wine-soaked ladyfingers.
