Uncle's Snack Shop set to officially open soon in Richmond

Mar 10 2021, 7:32 pm

Same team, different concept. The folks behind Main Street’s new restaurant Saola have something else up their sleeves for diners ahead of that opening: Uncle’s Snack Shop.

While they navigate some delays building out the highly anticipated upcoming modern Asian concept, partners Patrick Do, Kevin Lin, and Osric Chau have unveiled plans for a funky eatery in Metro Vancouver.

Uncle’s Snack Shop will offer modern Asian snacks with a nostalgic flair out of the former location of Green Lemongrass in Richmond.

Think carnival corn dogs featuring Taiwanese sausages, ramen shake shake fries, green onion and ginger fried chicken sandwiches, and more.

The snack shop’s 8180 Westminster Highway location has been in the Do family for 17 years. Since it was previously under the operation of Patrick’s uncle, the name of the new destination was chosen in honour of him.
