After an initial delay, Toronto-based noodle house Kinton Ramen has revealed the soft opening date of its first Vancouver location.
Slated to be the only full-service dining option on the UBC campus, Kinton will be opening on Wednesday, August 12 at 6111 University Boulevard. The establishment will begin with a 12-seat dining room which will expand once physical distancing guidelines are lifted.
The chain first opened in Toronto in 2012 and operates under the umbrella of the Canadian-owned Kinka Family restaurant group. The brand has over ten locations in Ontario and several in Montreal. This Vancouver location will be the concept’s first in Western Canada.
