Table #43, AKA ‘The Hot Tub’ At Chinatown’s New Kissa Tanto

26357826400_9cd47e3184_b

Many months ago we posted a reader’s poll listing what we considered to be the top five restaurant tables in Vancouver. We received so much in the way of reader feedback – both positive and negative that we’ve decided to shine a brighter light on the subject, one excellent table at a time.

————————————————————–

Kissa Tanto is brand new, and it’s likely going to enjoy a long run in Chinatown on account of its amply evident awesomeness. There are plenty of sweet tables in the room, but the one that really has us excited for a sit-down is Table #43, the oversized, elevated booth at the back of the restaurant. Nicknamed “the hot tub” by the staff, the semi-circular beauty can fit four people very comfortably, and commands a view of the bar, most of the dining room, and the comings and goings of the kitchen, washrooms, and front door.

Seeing Everything From Lucky Taco’s Unique Table 31 In Kitsilano

When it’s not sunny or otherwise gorgeous out the action at Kitsilano’s Lucky Taco is anchored by the bar and the tables closest to it. When it’s nice out, however, it’s all about the patio. And yet neither of those sections of the restaurant – now enjoying its second summer – offers up the best seat in the house.
