Sai Woo Sign Recreated
Vancouver, BC

Salli Pateman named her new restaurant Sai Woo in honor of the restaurant that occupied the space from 1925 to 1959. When a friend sent her a link to a 1958 film showing Sai Woo’s original sign as a parade passed by, she was determined to find it. Much research and a $500 reward later, it wasn’t to be found. So she had a new one built. Troy Hibbs’ team at TDH Experiential Fabricators painstakingly researched the era and materials, and with only a grainy screenshot of the original sign, they have brought the famous Sai Woo rooster to light once again.
