Kingsway: Vancouver’s New Spice Route

by Fernando Medrano 04.23.2013

  If you have been paying attention to this city’s Chinese food scene you will have noticed the growing presence of authentic spicy Chinese cuisines. I’m not talking about the restaurants that serve “Szechuan” cuisine—that old-school westernized version of Sichuan food that we’ve been enjoying since our youth.
