About Bao Bei
Meaning “precious” in Mandarin, Bao Bei opened in January of 2010 in the heart of Chinatown with the hope of recreating that special charm that the area used to have. We specialize in rustic Chinese small plates meant for a more intimate dining experience. Chef Joël Watanabe, utilizes French techniques and the Japanese eye for plating and presentation to refine traditional flavours, creating unique dishes that maintain authenticity yet display a modern approach. All our ingredients are locally sourced, organic, hormone free and sustainable and not to worry, we do not use MSG in anything. Derek Granton oversees the bar with a diverse beer list, a succinct but smart wine list and an imaginative cocktail program using ingredients found in neighbouring Chinatown herbal shops that owner, Tannis Ling, grew up with. The room is a labour of love with elements of a traditional French brasserie intertwined with vintage Chinese motifs, clean modern lighting and playful details that nod to the owner’s family. Our aim is to stuff you with yummy food and drink and serve it to you in the most genuine, sincere manner.
