There is a lot of chowing down for us to do in Vancouver, and these new eateries make our to-eat lists longer than ever.

We were sad to see the infamous Chinese restaurant Tsui Hang Village close its doors abruptly in December, but now, its address has been taken over by a new concept. The 1193 Granville Street space is now home to Cold Tea, which describes itself as a spot for all-day dim sum, Chinese BBQ, and Vietnamese-style family food. According to Cold Tea’s website, it also boasts a craft cocktail program and a selection of wine.
