House Special has been serving up modern Vietnamese eats since it was first opened in 2016 by sister-brother duo Victoria and Patrick Do, and now the Yaletown restaurant has changed things up a bit.

The 1269 Hamilton Street spot has quietly opened after a short renovation, which saw the 1,200-sq-ft space get some interior updates including white marble, woodwork, and greenery.

Patrons can also enjoy Vietnamese variety show Paris by Night, which is screened on a large wall in the restaurant with a projector.

In addition to the sleek new look, House Special is boasting a new menu of eats that would make any comfort-food lover swoon.

The new selection of grub features a variety of share plates, rice bowls, and signature House Special eats, alongside creative cocktails, wine, and beer.

It’s hard to come to this spot and not get Frybread.

The refreshed menu offers a Confit Duck Frybread with house-made sesame frybread, five-spice duck confit, Asian slaw, and hoisin, and a Vegetarian Frybread stuffed with sauteed seasonal mushroom, Asian slaw, and house-made aioli.

A highlight for us was the Egg Yolk Pork Ribs, a combo of crispy pork side ribs tossed in spicy salted duck egg yolk.

Another must-try is the Angel Belly. This dish comes in two parts: one dish with crispy pork belly and another with angel hair vermicelli, greens, and herbs, alongside pickles for wrapping and a pineapple chili sauce.
