Global Korean rice hot dog brand finally made its way to Vancouver! If you’ve ever came across those decked out Korean hotdogs that is filled with cheese or mochi on Youtube or Tiktok or in a Kdrama (ahem Startup), you’ll know what Chung Chun is up to.

Find them down Robson Street on Denman.

Joy Cafe is like a cha chaan teng (Hong Kong style cafe) but elevated – with fancy marble decor and a slight price bump. Looking at their menu, you’ll also find Dim Sum on it. This makes some sense after finding out that Fortune Terrace owns it.

Either way, we welcome any additional decent food options to the Marine Drive area.

Address: 525 Sw Marine Dr, Vancouver, BC V6P 5X8

Sula Indian Restaurant

Richmond folks will know that Chirpyhut is sort of a hidden gem. And it isn’t because of their squid ink fried chicken either. But #ifyouknowyouknow kinda deal.

Happy to see them making their way to Cambie (near Passion 8) and to Kingsway (by Station Square).

Momofuku Noodle Bar

It was a matter of time when David Chang’s Momofuku would make its way to Vancouver. Afterall, if Toronto gets one, we should as well right? (yes)

The noodle bar is set to open at the new Vancouver House building in Downtown and will supposedly be based on the New York location.


Menya Itto

The “King of Tsukemen” is coming. Ramen connoisseurs may recognize the name as it’s one of the famous ramen shops in Japan.

From what we’ve gathered, their noodles are thick (like thiccc) as udon noodles and are dipped in their special broth that is a blend of chicken and seafood.

Although they were originally slated to open in Summer this year, their team informed us that it has been delayed due to COVID. The Robson Street location will be their first in North America.


That rounds up our list of restaurants opening their doors, or getting ready to open. We hope you try a few, or all of them, and enjoy safe and memorable meals. If you’re looking for the best food in Vancouver, peek our lists so you won’t be disappointed.
