Maenam
Best Thai, Best Asian, Best Restaurant: Maenam just keeps racking up the awards, often displacing higher-end names. Chef/owner Angus An has moved the needle, bringing a "sexy" upscale vibe to Thai dining, while still serving comfortable, accessible food in Kitsilano, once the Haight-Ashbury of Vancouver. His dishes each strive to balance heat with Thailand's dominant flavors: sour, sweet, bitter and salty. So the fermented pork sausage arrives with lemongrass, fried shallots, and crispy curried rice puffs, while tamarind sauce softens the eight-spice, crispy ling cod. The same innovations invigorate the drinks menu, which romps from white cardamom kombucha to cocktails like añejo rum infused with turmeric and ginger. Chef An also opened a more casual eatery on Granville Island in 2017: the fantastic Sen Pad Thai.
