Explore cutting-edge twists on this time-honoured Chinese tea ritual
Traditionally an afternoon tea ritual, dim sum has changed with the times. From Hong Kong to London and (more recently) Vancouver, standard dumplings are being elevated with Iberico pork and black truffles, twisted into new (highly Instagrammable) shapes and are now frequently served at dinner with trendy cocktails and wine.
On this West End walking tour, we will visit four of most delicious local dim sum innovators, learn about the meal's proper dining etiquettes and discover why Vancouver has the best Chinese food in North America.
This tour cannot accommodate vegetarians, vegans, celiacs and non-pork eaters.
In sum, a high-end culinary experience, perfect for pre- and post- cruise ship vacations.
