Over the last couple years, Vancouver's Chinatown has seen an increase of trendy restaurants and bars calling this eclectic neighborhood home. By day, it’s a bustling shopping district where you can find all sorts of tinctures, teas and imported goods. When the sun sets, it’s a popular nightlife destination for hungry bellies.
In the heart of Chinatown and across the street from Phnom Pehn (a local favorite Cambodian/Vietnamese restaurant), you will find Mamie Taylor's. The eccentric and jokey decor makes this place a fun spot to hang with friends, and the taxidermy throughout Mamie Taylor’s is certainly a conversation starter.
However, make no mistake! They take their food and drinks seriously, and you can taste it in each bite and sip. The menu is a take on American classic comfort dishes like fried chicken, grits, biscuits, cornbread, steak and pork chops, but turned up a bit. The deviled egg is a classic appetizer. Mamie Taylor's makes this dish their own by adding white anchovies, romesco, almonds and celery.
If you’re just stopping by for drinks, Mamie Taylor's is a fun place to grab a drink or two with friends. The cocktail list won't disappoint. A cocktail crawl throughout Chinatown will yield a tasty evening with Bao Bei, The Keefer Bar, The Parker and The Union close by. If dancing is on the agenda, Fortune Sound Club is right in the neighborhood.
