Inspired by Hong Kong’s signature open-air eateries (dai pai dong), Yin Yeung Express is a unique culinary event that pairs memorable stories of food with four fine-dining interpretations of Hong Kong cafe classics.
On September 13th, 14th, and 15th, supper and storytelling come together for Yin Yeung Express, presented by In the House festival, Ken Tsui (Vancouver Chinatown Night Market) and Kevin Chong (author of My Year of the Racehorse).
Each night will involve storytelling around the memories and nostalgia of Chinese food, while enjoying a playful take on the cuisine’s most iconic dishes prepared with fresh, delicious ingredients. (There will also be vegetarian options)
The storytelling will be curated by some of Vancouver’s most well-known cultural purveyors, including: Rain City Chronicles (Vancouver’s premier storytelling night), Ricepaper Magazine (Canada’s only Asian Canadian literary magazine) and Kevin Chong (Vancouver author of Beauty Plus Pity and My Year of the Race Horse).
Tickets to the Yin Yueng Express cost $55 per night, which includes a four course meal, four stories, and live music. Click here to purchase online.
In the true fashion of the pop-up experience, the dinners are held in a secret location which will be revealed only days before the event, and ONLY if you have purchased your tickets.
