Ahoy, fans of modern Asian comfort fare. One of Vancouver's most popular spots has just revealed plans to open a new location in the reimagined food hall of the iconic Lonsdale Quay in North Van.
Heritage Asian Eatery is headed to Lower Lonsdale and will be one of the fresh new Quay vendors setting up when the reimagined destination opens this spring. This will be the third location for the Vancouver-based restaurant.
“Lower Lonsdale and the Shipyards District is one of the most scenic and historic neighbourhoods in all of Metro Vancouver,” said Heritage owner Paul Zhang in a media release. “We cannot wait to join the incredible group of fellow restaurants and businesses in the Food Hall at The Quay to offer an unforgettable experience to the North Shore community.”
Heritage began on Pender Street in Vancouver's financial district back in 2016 before expanding with a second outpost on Broadway at Cambie. Earlier this year, the Pender location underwent an interior refresh. Heritage is known for its approachable menu of Chinese comfort classics, like dim sum dishes, loaded bao, and BBQ meats served to share or as plates with rice or noodles.
The full Heritage food menu will be available at its forthcoming Lonsdale Quay location.
The Lonsdale Quay marked its 35th anniversary in 2021, and in November of that year revealed plans for a major upgrade to its space and offerings.
The renovated food hall is set to open in spring 2023, with Heritage among the existing and new tenants at the revamped iconic venue. Visitors can expect to enjoy the revitalized Market and Food Hall vendors as well as indoor and outdoor seating, live music, and event programming.
“We are huge fans of Heritage Asian Eatery, and we’re really looking forward to having their concept as part of the refreshed experience in the Food Hall at The Quay. Paul and his team’s innovative menu and collaborative approach will make them a really valued addition to our community,” said Taylor Mathiesen, president of Quay North Urban Development.
