Sara’s Weeknight Meals: Season 11

Episode 1102: Chinatown Vancouver

Me and William Liu

Chinese immigrants were the backbone of Vancouver where I take a culinary tour of its Chinatown. At a local tea shop, I learn to make two deceptively simple appetizers cooked with tea: Smoked Tofu Topped with Wakame Salad and Colorful Yunnan Tea Eggs.  I sample Dim Sum at a shop owned by an opera singing second generation Chinese local. Then a Chinatown historian shows me a Chinese dumpling mashup Bulgogi Dumplings. Back home, I race the clock to prove I can make my version of Chinese takeout faster than it can be delivered from a restaurant.   Will my Baby Egg Rolls with Soy dipping sauce win the race?
