Kensington Cedar Cottage
Like its name, Kensington-Cedar Cottage is a combination of things. There is the intersection it shares with Mount Pleasant—Kingsway and Fraser Street—with high-end restaurants like the newly opened Italian eatery, Savio Volpe, and the award-winning Les Faux Bourgeois. And only a little farther east along Kingway, there is a very different neighbourhood: Little Saigon. Many of Vancouver’s early Vietnamese immigrants—who arrived during the Vietnam War—settled in the area, transforming it into, among other things, a great place to grab Vietnamese food (if you’re in the mood, try Hai Phong). Though it wasn’t until 2013, following a petition signed by 3,000 local residents and a small ceremony, that the City of Vancouver made Little Saigon official.
