One of Vancouver’s favourite local food trucks, Frying Pan, is officially opening a brick and mortar this week.
The much-loved purveyor of Korean street eats has been offering up its grub at Burrard and Pender since 2017, and now it will be opening its first counter-service eatery in Gastown at 60 West Cordova Street, the former location of Tuc Craft Kitchen.

Slated to open on Wednesday, December 2, the new licensed restaurant will be offering patrons its signature array of Insta-worthy fried chicken sandwiches, teriyaki rice bowls, and saucy fries.
In addition to the popular Nashville-meets-Korean-style fried chicken sandwiches, folks who head to the 2,200-sq-ft restaurant can expect new creations available only at the brick and mortar.
These morsels include Bacon Cheese Fries, Hot Chicken Tacos, Chicken and Waffles, and a show-stopping Double-Decker Sandwich made with two boneless fried chicken thighs, lettuce, marble cheese, and house mayo stacked between two toasted buns.
If you’re dining in, you can down that beast of a sandwich with a local craft beer or indulge in a house cocktail like the Hot Chicken Caesar, which arrives topped with a piece of boneless fried chicken.
Frying Pan Gastown is also going to be offering a limited-time Family Feast for $48. This is designed for sharing at home and includes a choice of two chicken sandwiches, bacon cheese fries, boneless chicken thigh bites (soy garlic, yang nyeom, or honey garlic sauce), two mayo sauces, slaw and pickles.
Starting December 2, you can find this new spot open Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am to 10 pm for dine-in and takeout.
Fans of the food truck can still track it down at 505 Burrard Street on weekdays from 11 am to 2:30 pm, and onsite at the Riley Park Farmers’ Market on Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm.
Address: 60 West Cordova Street, Vancouver
