My Foodie Side | Gastown Vancouver Photographer

If you follow me on Instagram (@photogbyleahv) you will notice I do enjoy my food.  Recently some close friends opened a new restaurant in the heart of Gastown called Bao Down (12 Powell Street, Vancouver, BC).

To explain their cuisine as written on their Facebook page at

Asian inspired sandwich shop serving Steam Bao, Banh mi, Sisig Kimchi Fries, Salad rolls in Gastown Vancouver .

I describe it as "Awesome goodness that will keep you coming back for MORE!"  And I am not just saying this because these are people who are like family to me :)  The tasty dishes are not just pretty in photos but does wonders for the taste buds!

As I mentioned in my Instagram post on their opening day, they ROCKED it with line ups at the door and selling out their tasting menu in mere hours!  

So go check out Bao Down for yourselves!  You will be glad you did!
