It’s official – popular Southeast Asian eatery Longtail Kitchen will finally be reopening on January 18.
The much-loved New West restaurant temporarily closed in October 2018 to merge with its nearby sister eatery in the River Market, Freebird Chicken Shack, which recently stopped operating in unit 112.
- New West's popular Freebird Chicken Shack has quietly shuttered
- Cora Breakfast and Lunch to open in Surrey January 21
- Crab Park Chowdery announces it will close on January 20
- Much-loved East Village Bakery to close doors for good January 19
Now, both concepts will reemerge with elements from their respective menus in Longtail’s renovated space in unit 116.
Patrons can expect a new rotisserie machine, a revamped retail section for groceries, and the slow introduction of signature menu items from both establishments like the classic rotisserie chicken, turmeric fried chicken, Chinese-style soy chicken, chicken pho, and Hainan chicken.
Longtail is also planning to introduce weekend roasts that will go beyond just chicken, along with rotating features incorporating laksa, boat noodles, and dishes such as the holy basil stir fry with crispy century egg to name a few.
There’s a lot of change happening at the River Market these days.
Angelina’s Dutch Corner just announced it would be leaving its Quayside Drive location at the end of March and reopening in the now-shuttered Wild Rice former spot in the community space.
We can’t wait to see it come together and eat all that quality local grub back to back.
Address: River Market – 810 Quayside Dr #116, New Westminster
