Ford Canada graciously took us out with their brand new Ford Fusion 2017. What a better way to exemplify this vehicle by going to a town in Vancouver that is experiencing the combination of old traditions and new changes.

  • East and West
  • Old and New
  • Traditions and Modern Technique

I grew up around Chinatown (my parents would take me every weekend for grocery shopping), and often thought it was a forgotten town in Vancouver. When I walked around as a child I would see mostly senior citizens reside in this area. The buildings were historic, but mostly abandoned.

As I paid more attention to the culinary scene of Vancouver, I realized a revolution was happening in Chinatown. New and talented chefs would seek store fronts in these spaces of Chinatown that has been vacant for many years.

Sai Woo at 158 East Pender Street popped up on my radar before it was opened. This restaurant paid homage to Sai Woo Chop Suey, which opened in 1925. Inside you see a complete renovation while displaying keepsake of heydays. Falken Reynolds balance designed between old and the new, with symbolic allusions throughout the two-level, 188 seat restaurant and bar.

Hakka Style Stuffed Tofu: Saoxing wine glaze, minced pork, braised leeks, chili vinaigrette.  Heavy salt content that makes this dish cringe-worthy.

Korean Beef Tenderloin Yukkae: this beef tartare was fresh and loaded Chinese sauces and oils. Served with Asian pear salad, egg yolk, and nori.

Cantonese Style Garlic Prawns: This reminded me of black bean stir fry prawn dish may parents would make at home. Garlic confit, chili, and market Chinatown vegetables.

Matcha Coconut Panna Cotta:  Perhaps my only favorite dish of the night is this heavy creamed panna cotta. Fragrant and smooth. Served with grape coulis, candied pistachios, and coconut shavings.

We may or may not have taken the new 2017 Ford Fusion around the corner for some gourmet plant-based Virtuous Pie. Thank goodness for back up cameras and the Fusion being so nimble parking in tight spaces. After all, it is a #FusionFoodie kind of night!
