Bao Bei is a beacon of new life in the neon night of Vancouver's Chinatown, thanks to the inspired cuisine of owner Tannis Ling. Bric-a-brac furnishings lend a vintage retro sensibility to the dining room, and the small plates bring a fresh, home-style quality to traditional Chinese recipes, influenced by Ling's Shanghai-Taiwanese upbringing and executed with contemporary flair by Japanese-French chef Joel Watanabe. The just-spicy-enough shao bing—a crunchy Chinese-style panini stuffed with cumin lamb sirloin and salted chiles—is incredibly satisfying. Equally tasty are the steamed truffled pork dumplings and straight-from-the-market snow peas sautéed with garlic and shaoxing wine. The restaurant is a bit of a hangout for downtown hipsters; part of the allure no doubt is the creative cocktail menu crafted by Ling, who was once a bartender at the trendy Chambar Lounge.—Kasey Wilson

Open Mondays through Saturdays 5:30 pm to midnight.
