Meet our Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour partners! Over the course of the tour, you’ll indulge in five of these award-winning establishments!
1001 West Cordova Street, Vancouver
Anchored at Vancouver’s beautiful waterfront, Bella Gelateria is a not-to-miss place to visit in Vancouver. In 2012, Gelato Master, James Coleridge, went to compete in the largest gelato competition in the world, in Florence, Italy. While he was there, he took home two gold medals – it was the first time a non-Italian had ever won the competition. Bella Gelateria is one of the busiest gelaterias in the world, proudly serving local, handmade products that do not contain any preservatives or artificial flavours. You deserve to taste the difference!

At the helm of Boulevard’s all-star team is Chef Alex Chen – an award-winning culinary titan, who competed as a Top 10 Finalist in the 2014 Bocuse D’or competition.

Come with friends and family to enjoy small plates of “Chinese tapas” in Kirin’s beautiful dining room.
