Yin Yeung Express (VANCOUVER)
On September 13th, 14th, and 15th, supper and storytelling come together for Yin Yeung Express, a unique culinary event presented by In the House Festival, Ken Tsui (Vancouver Chinatown Night Market) and Kevin Chong (author of My Year of the Racehorse). Inspired by Hong Kong’s signature open-air eateries (dai pai dong), memorable stories of food are paired with four fine-dining interpretations of humble Hong Kong café classics. Forget the greasy bowls of instant ramen with spam made to order and dive into a playful take on the cuisine’s most iconic dishes prepared with an innovative mix of fresh ingredients. And yes, there will be vegetarian options.
In the true fashion of the pop-up experience, the dinners are held in a secret location which will be revealed only days before the event, and ONLY if you’ve purchased your tickets. Tickets are $55 and can be purchased on-line at or by phone at 604-874-9325
