March 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm PDT

Presented by indie magazine & hard-knock chefs collective The Curatorialist, CRIMSON  CANTEEN is a series of curated pop-up food events that aims to highlightand in the process, transmogrifythe beguiling flavours of China in a convivial and electrifying atmosphere.
Our inaugural edition features—and lionizes—the amicably arcane [and dangerously concupiscent] cuisine of Taiwan by harnessing the talents of two wunderkinds; Vancouver’s Dumpling King Matt Murtagh-Wu, and Taiwanese Chef David Wu of saporous Chinatown fixture, Rhinofish Noodle Bar.

Swearing allegiance to Taiwan’s flavour-packed [Hello, xiǎochī!] night markets, CRIMSON  CANTEEN promises to be a galvanizing addition to Vancouver’s pop-up food scene by way of serious food coma, if not sensory overload.

So lend your ears to our cri de coeur, and careen to Chinatown.

Your future food memories are available for purchase. Now.
