When you travel as much as I do, you learn there are some things you can never be prepared for....like a riot in Vancouver. Lucky for me I wasn't there the night it happened, but when I arrived the next day you could see the upsetting aftermath. Although it was a quick 36 hour trip, I managed to try out one of the hottest new restaurants in Chinatown, Bao Bei. For more info visit Vancouver magazine Scout, which shows some amazing pictures and also gives a great glimpse into this restaurants amazing cuisine.
Travel brought me to Vancouver. Lucky for me I missed the riot by a day....

Bao Bei means "precious" in Mandarin
Trixie the "mixologist" has inspired me to learn how to make a creative cocktail
I love the vintage flea market feel of the restaurant
My pretty dinner, which looked to good to eat (but was mighty tasty)
