We love a good tasting menu — don’t you?

It’s the perfect excuse to let the restaurant drive and lead you down a multi-course path of deliciousness. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and eat up!

Here are some excellent tasting menus in Vancouver you should make a point to try now, or in the near future when they launch.

This popular Main Street restaurant is a no-brainer if you’re searching for a delicious tasting menu this season. Anh and Chi is marking five years of operation by launching two celebratory Family-Style Tasting Menus, only available in the month of December.

These four-course spreads are recommended for four to six people. They feature an appetizer of Bánh Khot (Crispy Turmeric Prawn Cakes) and a choice between two special anniversary feature mains: Cari Cua (Curry Dungeness Crab) with sides and Gỏi Bắp Chuối (Seared Scallop & Banana Blossom Salad) together with Cơm Chiên Cua (Soft-Shell Crab Fried Rice).

For dessert, guests can enjoy a collaboration with Cadeaux Bakery of Chocolate Cake filled with Jasmine Cream and Coffee Mousse and finished with Vietnamese Coffee Buttercream.
