Time To Score: The Bao Bei Chinese New Year Menu Covers All The Bases

Another Beautiful photo by Mark Yammine

The Bao Bei crew have returned from their annual holiday just in time to celebrate the Year Of The Rabbit. This Chinatown restaurant takes the Lunar New Year pretty seriously, which means good times and a killer dinner menu are in store for Vancouverites.

Starting on the eve of the Chinese New Year (Saturday, January 21st) and running for the next two weeks, Bao Bei will be offering a celebratory 6-course menu that covers all the bases: noodles for longevity, dumplings for wealth, pork belly for prosperity, and fish for bounty (see details below).

Diners can choose to reserve the whole menu for $108 per person or order a la carte, but be forewarned: limited quantities of each dish will be available per night, plus seatings for these dinners are highly sought after and filling up quickly! So dial up some friends and figure out which date works for you, sooner rather than later. You’ll be glad to enter the Year of the Rabbit with a happy heart and a full belly (or a full heart and a happy belly). Make your reservation here.
