Posts Tagged ‘Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie’

Collin and I wanted to go to this restaurant for long time, and Top Chef competition reminded us! (The final four completed at the restaurant.) Since they don’t take reservations, we just had to go there.

Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie is located in Chinatown, about 15+ min walking distance from Stadium Skytrain station. It is a bit unease area. A homeless person was kneeling and begging money in front of the restaurant. But food was good, so wait inside the door. We waited for 20 min before being seated at counter.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Cocktail, Jinzi
(Gin, Aperol, Fernet Branca, rose/ginger water, Fresh lemon, Lemon Oil)

The bartender said this was the most popular one. 🙂

Cocktail, Banana Colada

We said we would share it, and the bartender made it split for us. It was nice of him.
