Our Story

The Foundation of a Family Legacy

At the heart of Little Bird Dim Sum + Craft Beer is a rich family history marked by ambition and unbreakable bonds.

Joseph Lee continued the vision of his father, Yuk Sing Lee, with the establishment of Flamingo Chinese Restaurant.

Under their leadership, Flamingo became a cornerstone of authentic Chinese cuisine and dim sum in Vancouver, reflecting their dedication to quality and innovation.

Evolving Alongside Tradition

Jonathan Lee took the family legacy to new heights with the creation of Little Bird Dim Sum + Craft Beer.

Drawing from the wisdom of his father and grandfather, Jonathan merged traditional Cantonese dim sum with Vancouver’s vibrant craft beer culture.

This blend of heritage and modernity showcases our commitment to excellence, resilience, and the continuous evolution of our culinary tradition.
