Le tigre – Authentic Asian cuisine

Who is this new food truck and why should you go and try it?

Clement Chan
Clement Chan holds several Provincial cooking championships and is the National 2010 Canadian Chef of the Year (awarded by the CCFCC). He graduated Culinary Arts at VCC in 2002, and then went to Dubrelle to claim his Baking and Desserts diploma. He has worked in most of the finest establishments in Vancouver over the last decade in restaurants and hotels. Chambar, Lumiere, Blue Water Cafe, Raincity Grill, Fairmont YVR, Hyatt Regency, Glowbal Grill, Hapa Umi and Sanafir Restaurant, are just to name a few. He has also worked as a member of the opening team in various restaurants in Vancouver: Blue Water Cafe, Lucky Diner and Hapa Umi. Clement has opened restaurant like Shor, Swim Pool and Bar Grill, and Medi Restaurant which are all properties of Hyatt Regency Curacao Golf Resort..

Steve Kuan

Steve went to culinary school at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in 2006. He has gained experience in award winning restaurants in the past 5 years such as: Ciopipno’s, Mosaic @ the Hyatt Regency and completed his red seal certification at La Belle Auberge.


As in all restaurants or food trucks the heart and soul of culinary journey starts with the people behind it.
I can’t say I know Clement or Steve well yet but I can say that their skills are a great start.
The food so far speaks for itself……
a signature dish

Kick Ass rice:
Rice, butter, sake, dashi served with a poached egg and spiced pork belly.


The great part of learning about new foods and continuing on a culinary side journey is to “go outside of your comfort zone” and try new things….
Case in point, beets are not on my list of wow flavor foods… Sorry beets but honesty is the best policy.
What’s my point?
Well….. I just may have found a beet that I like!


These beet fries are served with steam buns and Bang Bang chicken….with greens.

Go see Clement and Steve and tryout their culinary fare…..
They are on the corner of Bute and Alberni Street in Vancouver….
They seem friendly and wanting to please…. Stay humble and patient Chefs and your delectable fusion / contemporary Asian fare will sell itself.

Also keep your eye out for Le Tigre on season 4 of Eat Street! I hear a rumor that they may be on it!

  1. Beet fried will get me alone – what an idea!!!!!


  2. Hello, Neat post. There is a problem along with your site in internet explorer, would test this? IE still is the market leader and a large component of folks will miss your wonderful writing due to this problem.


    • I just looked at it through IE and it was ok. Do you think it may have to do with an outdated IE?
      I have forwarded your comments to WordPress to have them look into this for me. Thanks for the heads up…..

      Advanced Browser Troubleshooting
      Some issues that you encounter with your WordPress.com blog or account can be solved by changing your browser settings, refreshing the page, or clearing the browser cache and cookies.

      Note: We recommend that you use either Firefox or Chrome for optimal performance with WordPress.com.

      Force Refresh

      A force refresh or reload will cause the browser to re-check with the web server to make sure it has the latest copy of the web page you are viewing. Here are keyboard shortcuts for force refreshing your browser:

      Windows: Ctrl + F5
      Mac/Apple: Apple + R or Cmd + R
      Linux: F5

      Clear Your Cache and Cookies

      Each time you access a web page, your web browser stores a temporary copy of the files needed to display the web page to you. Those temporary files are called the browser cache. If your cache is not updating properly or if it’s stuck, you could be viewing an older version of some of the supporting files that run WordPress.com.

      If you are experiencing problems displaying WordPress.com pages, clearing the browser cache is a good first step to try to resolve the issue. If that doesn’t help, you should also try clearing the browser cookies. Instructions for clearing cache and cookies are different for each browser and version. Google has outlined the steps for all major browsers:

      Clearing cache and cookies
      Note: It is also possible for your Internet Service Provider to create a cache at the network level. This means that instead of viewing the WordPress.com web servers for some files, the ISP has created a cache to store files on their network to try to reduce bandwidth costs and also to make loading some web pages faster. If a network-side cache is causing you trouble, you most likely just need to wait for it to clear out on its own.

      Logging out/Preview issues

      If you find yourself getting logged out from WordPress.com frequently and are having trouble posting to your blog, or if you’re having difficulty using the Preview option, it’s possible you don’t have third-party cookies enabled in your browser.

      More Troubleshooting

      If you are still having trouble, here are a few more things you can try:

      Upgrade your browser and Flash Player to the latest version available.
      Make sure wordpress.com, wp.com and their subdomains (*wordpress.com / *.wp.com) are not blocked by your browser. This also applies to your firewall or anti-virus software settings if you have any.
      Try an alternate browser. If it works, then the issue is with the browser settings. Look for troubleshooting tips on your browser’s support documentation.
      Internet Explorer Solution Center
      Troubleshooting Firefox
      Chrome Support
      Safari Support
      Try an alternate computer in the same location. If another computer works, then the issue is computer settings on the first one.
      Try an alternate location that has a different Internet Service Provider. If it works, the issue is with your local network.
