Chinatown is suddenly Vancouver’s most talked-about neighborhood (Just check out this recent Vancouver Sun article). To understand Chinatown’s past and present, I tagged along on a unique walking tour of the neighborhood called A Wok around Chinatown. In my last post, I talked about the ancient ceremonies that are alive and well in Chinatown. In this final installment, I’ll take a look at restaurants and produce and meat markets in the neighborhood.
While the best Chinese food in Vancouver today is arguably being served in Richmond, there are still some authentic and affordable restaurants right in Chinatown. Jade Dynasty, near the corner of Pender and Main Street, is one of them.
