Street Food in Vancouver's Chinatown

It’s no secret that Vancouver is one of the best cities in the world when it comes to food. At the heart of that is the great Chinese food scene and if Tony Lam, from the Vancouver Chinatown Merchant’s Association, has his way, Chinatown could be home to the city’s first ‘food street’ like the one in Hong Kong pictured above.

The plan is to make the 100 block of Keefer Street, in Chinatown, a car free pedestrian only street filled with restaurants and food stalls. The idea has already be successfully tried in Richmond.

If this is approved, this will be another step in the right direction to revitalize the once deteriorating Chinatown.
