It will be called Rekados and will be located at King Edward and Main and the partners trained in Vancouver and worked at the Arbutus Club for years. Excellent! Can't wait to try it!

Lan's Restarant - first visit was excellent

A few weeks ago, for an off site company gathering we tried Lan's Vietnamese restaurant (1481 West Broadway, 604) 738-2338) for a very late lunch. Wow! We were too tired to think and just ordered the dinner for four for $38 and it was fabulous.  Lots of spicy and flavourful food (lemon grass pork, spicy soup, chicken and more!). More than enough for four. Definitely will be back.
