New Vancouver restaurants are our three favourite words, so here’s the latest in local food and beverage.

There are tons of establishments in and around the city that have opened for the first time recently, but how do you pick which ones are worth hitting up?

We’ve done the tough work for you and created this shortlist of reopenings and openings you should be paying attention to — you’re welcome, foodies.

Here are the best new Vancouver restaurants you need to try.

Mooby’s Pop-Up

Cow Tipper (Hanna McLean/Daily Hive)

It’s here for a good time, not a long time, so we’d suggest getting grub from the fiction-turned-real fast-food joint from the mind of actor and filmmaker Kevin Smith. We went in on the first day of operation and would definitely recommend checking it out if you’re a burger lover. Folks need to make reservations ahead of time, or you can order this grub via Skip The Dishes.

Address: 670 Smithe Street, Vancouver

Sneaky Pete’s Pool Cafe

Sneaky Pete’s Pool Cafe has finally opened its doors to the public in Vancouver. The new destination for games, beer, and grub is located at 424 Mclean Drive, just a stone’s throw from Yolk’s and Timbertrain’s Depot. Sneaky Pete’s boasts eight brand new Diamond pool tables.

Address: 424 Mclean Drive, Vancouver


Machi Machi

This Taiwanese tea shop is known for its selection of specialty drinks like fresh teas, milk teas, and cream foam sips in unique (and adorable) to-go cups as well as takeaway bottles. Machi Machi currently operates several of its modern stores in Toronto and surrounding areas.

Address: 1194 Robson Street, Vancouver
Phone: 604-564-9139


Studio Brewing

Studio Brewing is currently pouring a small but mighty menu of its beers alongside some collaborations with Dageraad Brewing and the Superflux Beer Company. If you feel like sticking around the tasting room, Studio has some bites like chips, tinned mussels, a cheese plate, and other light snacks available for brew lovers.

Address: 5792 Beresford Street, Burnaby

Patrons who head here will find four sandwiches up for order, including the Crack Sandwich made from maple sausage, fried egg, Havarti, tomato relish, cheddar, candied jalapeno, and house-made aioli. This food truck updates its location and hours on its social media channels, so keep an eye on those.

The new 1,500 sq ft Japanese hand roll bar features a sprawling U-shaped bar complete with plexiglass dividers for pandemic-friendly seating. The menu here is straightforward (just the way we like it) and features 13 different varieties of hand rolls complete with some vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. This is definitely one of our new Vancouver restaurants you should look into trying.
