Mott-32 Vancouver: A Culinary Gem in Our Midst
Experience Tradition and Modernity in Harmony
Nestled within the opulent confines of the Paradox Hotel Vancouver, Mott-32 is a beacon of modern Chinese gastronomy. Its name pays homage to 32 Mott Street in New York, a significant landmark that saw the birth of the city's vibrant Chinatown in the late 19th century. This connection to a rich historical tapestry sets the stage for the culinary journey that awaits.

By forging ties with local farms, Mott-32 ensures that every dish not only tantalizes the palate but also resonates with a commitment to quality.

With subtle incorporations from Beijing and Szechuan, their menu is a delightful blend of the familiar and the novel. Their chefs, with their unmatched expertise, breathe new life into time-honored recipes, offering guests a dining experience that's both rooted in tradition and forward-looking.
