Street Auntie Aperitivo House Opens in Downtown Vancouver on November 25


New Restaurant Brings Contemporary Chinese Street Food Concept to Upscale Setting in the Granville Entertainment District

An innovative new culinary concept inspired by the comfort, soul and flavours of authentic Chinese street food makes its debut in Downtown Vancouver when Street Auntie Aperitivo House opens its doors at 1039 Granville Street on Wednesday, November 25.

Drawing inspiration from her childhood experiences growing up in Yunnan Province, China, where street-food vendors are commonly referred to by a term of respect and affection known as ‘Street Aunties’, Owner Yuyina Zhang designed the Street Auntie experience around five different menus that each reflect an important part of food culture in Yunnan — Butcher Auntie, Ocean Auntie, Yunnan Auntie, Dim Sum Auntie and Vegetarian Auntie.

Open Wednesdays through Mondays for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, Street Auntie offers a unique concept that allows diners to enjoy as many dishes as they wish from the weekly rotating menu during a pre-booked one-hour time slot for $38 per person for lunch or $58 for dinner. For those who wish to enjoy the Street Auntie experience at home, curated take-home boxes comprising three courses and dessert are also available for $28.

“The fond memories I have of the Street Aunties I knew as a child – and who are still a warm and welcome sight for hungry passersby – were a true source of inspiration for me,” says Zhang, “I can’t wait to help bring people in Vancouver together to experience an upscale and immersive street-food experience while enjoying great company at Street Auntie.”

Pre-paid reservations for one to six people for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch services beginning November 25 are now available via
