There’s a new spot for traditional Southeast Asian street food and it’s opening soon.

Potluck Hawker Eatery has shared with Daily Hive that it plans to open in Cambie Village this spring.

The 993 sq. ft. restaurants will be headed by Justin Cheung, a longtime chef of Longtail Kitchen. Cheung grew up with his mother’s Malaysian cooking, as well as his uncle’s char kuay teow stall, and says that he’ll be bringing comfort dishes from Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

While the menu is still being developed, potential diners can expect dishes like fried chicken wings with salted egg yolk butter, Filipino pork belly and coconut stew, and laksa, to name a few.

The 35-seat restaurant will also feature a rotating “potluck-style” family menu with sharable dishes such as fried fish, Dungeness crab, and fried chicken, paired with a number of different snacks and sides.

Get excited, Vancouver — we’ll keep you posted when an exact opening date is confirmed.
