STREET AUNTIE aperitivo house is an innovative concept inspired by the comfort and soul of the world’s most authentic Chinese street food. At their downtown Vancouver location, aperitivo house focuses on adding a contemporary twist to steamed fresh seafood, modern dim-sum, and ever-changing internationally inspired Chinese tapas dishes. Drawing inspiration from her childhood experiences growing up in Yunnan Province, China, where street-food vendors are commonly referred to by a term of respect and affection known as ‘Street Aunties’, Owner Yuyina Zhang designed the Street Auntie experience around five different menus that each reflect an important part of food culture in Yunnan — Butcher Auntie, Ocean Auntie, Yunnan Auntie, Dim Sum Auntie and Vegetarian Auntie.
Open Wednesdays through Mondays for lunch, dinner and afternoon tea on Sundays, Street Auntie offers a unique concept that allows diners to enjoy a weekly rotating menu during a pre-booked for $38 per person for lunch or $58 for dinner. For those who wish to enjoy the Street Auntie experience at home, curated take-home boxes comprising three courses are also available for $28.
