Miki & Stephen | Dachi

Walking into this intimate restaurant on East Hastings feels like you’re being welcomed into a friend’s place. Which makes sense — “dachi” means “pal” in Japanese. Owners Miki and Stephen are pals who combined their passions for food and service, and opened a restaurant together. Dachi’s rotating menu is made from locally sourced, seasonal, and sustainable products. If you taste a wine you love, you can grab a bottle from their to-go fridge before you leave. Or pop into their adjacent retail shop, Mucker Next Door, for more local goods.
