Dine Outside Vancouver - Ampersand Bistro

Although this was part of the Dine Outside Vancouver Festival 2020, we only ate part of our meal outside. Stay tuned for details. I was intrigued by the DOVF choices at Ampersand Bistro and so even though I had not heard about them or been drawn by Instagram, we decided to give them a try.

Located on Water Street between Abbott and Carrall, they are in that 'character' part of town where the scenery can be charming or surprising. We ate at one of the 3 or so tables on the street and it was a beautiful day.
The lunch offering was $25 per person and there were 2 choices of appetizer, main and dessert so Mharie and I were able to try everything on their DOV menu. The first dish up was the ChickenTaco-taco. AB offers a fusion but definitely Asian leaning menu and as I failed to ask about the tortillas, I am not 100% sure of what they were. I am leaning towards a rice crepe as they were very thin and somewhat delicate. The fillings along with braised chicken included hoisin and their house pink sauce along with some pickled items and cilantro. These were actually very good!
Next was Sassy Wontons. Nicely presented with a generous amount of sauces, crispy noodles and pickles, we were impressed again! 
The Designer Dim Sum Flight was 5 imaginative variations on the usual shumai and hargow (not that I have a problem with the usual). They have a way with sauces here and figuring out how to slurp them up without leaving any behind presented our greatest challenge. They were not small dumplings so the hargow noodle was a little on the chewy side. 
Satay Noodle with Asian Pulled Pork was another generous portion and the pulled pork did not miss the mark. At that point in our dining experience, 2 construction guys set up their power washer to clean the sidewalk at the storefront next door. We decided that it would be better to take our dessert inside and our server happily accommodated us. Not sure how that would have been dealt with if the restaurant was at capacity! This was a surprising drawback to the outdoor patio concept!
Both the Cheesecake and Match Red Bean Buns were quite good for dessert. The cheesecake was moist and the blueberry topping made it an impressive finish to our meal.
They have a small but chic dining room going on here at AB. Someone gave it some thought as the spaces are divided providing some privacy and it works out well for the whole social distancing thing. Our server was friendly and efficient and we feel like they offer good value.
