Dinner at Tang's Bistro

This is a repeat performance at Tang's by popular request. Tang's Bistro is located in the old Tang's Noodle House, an institution in Kitsilano for a decade or two at Broadway and McDonald. The new Tang's Bistro is completely different with two large signs on the windows about vegan food, a completely vegan menu (in addition to their regular meat menu) and the use of separate woks and cooking implements for their vegan dishes. The food is Chinese fusion. 

(By RSVPing YES to this dinner, you agree to pay for the cost of your meal if you cancel less than 24 hours before the event, since the restaurant is preparing this food specially for us. )

Menu ($25 CASH ONLY/ diner including tax and tip):


•Tofu Corn Soup

•Veggi gyoza trio  (Homemade steamed dumplings with assorted vegetables fillings)

•Papaya Salad 

Mixed greens with papaya, sunflower seeds & coconut flakes.


Assorted Veggies with Peanuts in chilli sauce

•MaMa Tofu 

minced tofu, diced mushroom, chestnut, daikon, taro noodle 

in mild spicy & black bean sauce with organic olive oil. 

•Vitoria Wrap (steamed sueychop veggie, stuffed veggies ham, cucumber, yellow pepper, green onion , jicama with pineapple satay sauce)

•Colourful Pan fried vermicelli in canton style 

•Dessert (a surprise)

Below are some of the fusion Chinese dishes the restaurant makes. It is not at all like other Chinese restaurants. The food is individually plated, not on sharing plates.

      Double thanks to Nancy. She organised this, I was just sitting with her. Usually if there is more than one host, each will appear as "Event Host".

    This was another outstanding dinner. Thank you Nancy for arranging the meetup and working with the chef to produce such a delightful meal. From the first visit to Tang's we had 3 dishes the same - the gyozas, papaya salad and the spicy tofu - otherwise we had new items. Wow! The service was very good considering the numbers at the restaurant apart from a few very minor hiccups but nothing to get upset about. Thank you my fellow diners at my table - Michael, Crystal, Brenda, Lilly (plus the lady who's name I forgotten, Very sorry about that) who made the evening complete.

    Enjoyed all the dishes. That dressing on the salad is so delicious. Dessert is different every time and always so creative.

    Yummy and varied meal. Sometimes I wanted to know what I was eating, but it didn't really matter. It was all tasty and nicely presented. Excellent dinner conversation with convivial folks, also !

    If you didn`t attend the first Tang`s meetup, do not miss this one. It is fantastic to be able to go to a restaurant serving high end vegan food, prepared by a Chef not just a cook and only pay the price we will be paying. I have attended many meetups over several years but Tang`s was one of the most memorable.
