Yin Yueng Express
6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
On September 13-15, supper and storytelling come together for Yin Yeung Express, a unique culinary event presented by In the House Festival, Ken Tsui (Vancouver Chinatown Night Market) and Kevin Chong (author of My Year of the Racehorse).
Inspired by Hong Kong’s signature open-air eateries (dai pai dong), memorable stories of food are paired with four fine-dining interpretations of humble Hong Kong café classics. Forget the greasy bowls of instant ramen with spam made to order and dive into a playful take on the cuisine’s most iconic dishes prepared with an innovative mix of fresh ingredients. And yes, there will be vegetarian options.
With stories revolving around the memories and nostalgia of Chinese food, each evening of storytellers is curated by some of Vancouver’s signature cultural purveyors: Rain City Chronicles (Vancouver’s premier storytelling night), Ricepaper Magazine (Canada’s only Asian Canadian literary magazine) and Kevin Chong (Vancouver author of Beauty Plus Pity and My Year of the Race Horse).
