This self-described “friendly little sausage and beer parlour” has set up shop in Chinatown’s heritage Columbia Block Building. Inspired by German street food, Bestie serves up a selection of finely crafted sausages, crispy fries, tasty side salads, fresh baked pretzels, and Chinatown’s finest currywurst.

The classic pork currywurst is a our go-to but pickier friends appreciate their more creative haute dogs like veggie brats, elk sausage and turkey chorizo. Bestie works with local inputs including Urban Vancouver farms and uses sustainably raised meats. You’ll find some of our favorite Vancouver craft brewers, like 33 Acres, here on tap here, as well as kombucha in a can, and a fun selection of fancy pop for the small folk.

Bestie is open continuously from 11am through late night, so you can do early lunch, or early dinner here with the kiddos at off-peak hours. It’s worth mentioning that the restaurant design, from the wood booths to the ceramics mimicking street food plates, is inspiring.

Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
