This year marks the 9th anniversary for Forage, and the team. This means a lot to us. We've always prided ourselves on supporting local, small business farmers, fishers and foragers. They’ve trusted us to honour their hard work on the plate, and you’ve trusted us to share their stories with you all.
We are open for take out or contactless delivery. The safety of our staff, guests and the community which we love is of the utmost importance to us. We have COVID-19 policies and procedures in place to ensure safety during these challenging times.

ABOUT Chef Welbert Choi
Chef Welbert Choi is quietly driven. Everything he does is steeped in his innate creativity. As a Chef he brings a humble, but generous spirit to everything he cooks. His main motivation as a Chef is to have his food be a part of memorable moments.
Welbert was born in Hong Kong. He and his family moved to North Burnaby during his teenage years. He trained at Dubrulle Culinary Institute. His resume includes catering at the Hilton Burnaby, working in the kitchen at Opus’s former restaurant Elixir, and he helped open Forage in 2012 as Pastry Chef. After 2 years, he was given the title of Forage’s Chef de Cuisine. He has run daily operations in the Forage kitchen since that time. Now he is the Executive Chef of Forage, BeSIDE Forage, Forage Shop, and Forage Catering.
Fostering the menu at Forage has deepened his relationships with local producers. He believes that it is the responsibility of all Vancouver chefs to help build long term farming, fishing and foraging legacies in BC for generations to come by working closely with local producers.
He believes that food should bring people and families together, build communities, and be a flavourful part of gatherings and celebrations. He chooses his ingredients with respect, considers the environmental impact of what he brings into the kitchen, and approaches food in a way that celebrates the whole ingredient.
“Forage is the rare hotel restaurant that’s popular with locals. The menu looks like standard fare — pancakes, granola, eggs with bacon — but when the food arrives, it’s definitely something you couldn’t make at home. And despite the fact that Forage was sourcing locally and sustainably way before that was cool, you won’t get a side order of moral smugness with your eggs.”

About the wine list at Forage, "The Grade: A. In terms of offering a cross section of what this province does in winemaking, there's is no more important list in town (or the world for that matter). It's a one stop shop for immersing oneself in the region and there are a lot of bottles that simply can't be sourced anywhere else. A civic treasure."
