David Chang might be opening his own restaurant in Vancouver next year, but that didn’t stop the American restauranteur and Momofuku owner from highlighting some of our region’s best foodie spots that already exist in his new Netflix show.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner is officially streaming, which means you can watch all four episodes of Chang travelling and eating his way through four different cities with celebrities, but mostly, you’ll likely want to watch Chang and homegrown funny guy Seth Rogen exploring Vancouver.
So where did the famous foodie choose to head in and around our beloved city? We’ll tell you before you even watch (spoiler alert).
