Bao Bei is run by the same people as Kissa Tanto, and like its sister restaurant, it serves very good food that you’ll have recurring dreams about, but in a more casual space. It’s one of our favorite places in town, and if you’re only in the city for a quick visit, you should go here straight away. There’s an old-school arcade game when you walk in and they serve creative takes on Chinese food, as in you can order a margarita alongside fried rice, which will come with salted egg yolk-dusted chicharrones. Don’t miss the shao bing (sesame flatbread with lamb), the bean curd skins, and the pork belly. They don’t take reservations, so go a few doors down to The Keefer Bar (more on that later) while you wait.

Upstairs at Campagnolo
This bar hidden up a staircase in Campagnolo has a small menu and lots of obscure wines and cocktails.
Kissa Tanto is one of the hardest reservations to get, but it's well worth whatever you have to do to get one to eat the Japanese - Italian food.
Keefer Bar is one of the best and strangest bars in all of Canada, with an apothecary theme and a complex cocktail list.
