ABOUT Tuc Craft Kitchen

group dining

As a distinguished establishment in the heart of Downtown Vancouver’s vibrant Gastown neighborhood, Tuc Craft Kitchen proudly served as a beacon of modern Canadian cuisine for five memorable years. Our culinary journey was marked by an unwavering commitment to fresh, local ingredients, bringing to the table a unique blend of dishes that resonated deeply with the essence of Canada’s rich culinary heritage.

At Tuc Craft Kitchen, our philosophy was simple yet profound: to create a space that felt like an integral part of the community from the moment you stepped inside. Our menu was a testament to this vision, offering an array of dishes that ranged from comforting classics to innovative creations, all designed to evoke a sense of nostalgia and discovery.

From the robust flavors of our lamb and pork belly to the delicate nuances of our Tuna Nicoise Salad Sandwich, each dish was a celebration of elegance, rusticity, and honesty.
Our commitment to excellence extended beyond our food to our carefully curated selection of authentic cocktails, craft beer, and wines. These offerings were meticulously chosen to complement our culinary creations, ensuring a harmonious dining experience that was akin to gathering at a family table.

The ambiance of Tuc Craft Kitchen was a reflection of Gastown’s trendy and historical charm, blending vintage elements with modern aesthetics. Our space was designed to welcome guests into a warm and inviting atmosphere, characterized by high ceilings, expansive windows, and wooden accents. This setting, combined with our accommodating and friendly service, created an environment where every visit was a memorable experience.

Signature dishes such as the Crispy Bacon and Egg, Parsnip and Smashed Potato Fries, and the Waffles & Pig brunch dish became beloved staples, showcasing our innovative approach to cuisine. Our homemade ketchup, crafted with coriander, and a selection of unique fries with dipping sauces further exemplified our dedication to culinary creativity.

Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, Tuc Craft Kitchen remained a cherished part of Vancouver’s dining scene for five years. Our decision to close our doors on August 29, 2020, was made with heavy hearts, but we remain grateful for the support of our staff and guests who made our journey so rewarding. Tuc Craft Kitchen will always be remembered for its passion for great local food, served in a caring, casual environment, and the special moments shared by those who dined with us.
