Bao Down is a contemporary Pacific Rim Fusion restaurant located at 12 Powell Street Vancouver and 115 West 2nd Avenue Vancouver. The first restaurant opened in historic Gastown in February 2015 offering a unique twist on Pacific Rim cuisines that include a blend of culinary traditions, authentic ingredients and distinct cooking techniques.
Bao Down blends the mouth-watering flavours and spices of the Orient with fresh vegetables and proteins of the Pacific Northwest. All ingredients are sourced from a very select list of suppliers who deliver high quality products that complement well with our unique recipes and cooking methods.
Bao Down creates a weekly special based on seasonal ingredient availability, local community events, holidays and charity sponsorship involvement. Examples of past weekly specials include Pink colored Baos during cancer awareness month, Bang bang prawn during seafood season, Rainbow Bao during Pride week and Kickoff Bao during football season. These weekly specials carry the same extraordinary flavours, ingredients and blending of authentic Pacific Rim spices that keep Vancouverites coming back to taste the latest Bao Down sensation.
Beyond the food, the restaurant provides a casual, charming dining setting that is welcoming and enjoyable on any occasion, including romantic dinners and business luncheons. The décor is a tribute to the late eighty’s and ninety’s soul, R&B and hip hop generation that provide an air reminiscence and nostalgia of past legacy.
Vancouverites have embraced the arrival of Bao Down with their social media exchange, four and a half star rating, line up for lunches and dinners, and large catering orders for corporate and private events.
Bao Down serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to complete the authentic dining experience. The restaurant is open seven days a week and late nights on Fridays and Saturdays.
Bao Down is committed to bringing Vancouverites flavours of the Pacific Rim in a unique fusion blending of exotic spices, authentic cooking methods and fresh local ingredients in a soulful environment that arouses fun and youthful ambiance while enjoying great food, beverage and company.
