Starting Saturday, April 21, 1886 will treat locals and visitors alike, to the resort’s newest dining experience: impeccably prepared all-you-can-eat dim sum, dished up in an exquisite dining environment that pays homage to authentic culinary traditions of China.

“Dim sum is my favourite dish to enjoy with family and friends and we are so excited to bring our favourite foods to 1886, for Vancouver to enjoy,” says Elizabeth Blau, founder and CEO of Blau + Associates, which operates the restaurant. “Vancouver is known for offering some of the best Chinese cuisine outside of China and our dim sum experience is great value for the price point. The menu offers a perfect opportunity for those new to dim sum, as well as seasoned partakers, to participate in the tradition.”
