Richmond's much-loved Maylasian restaurant John 3:16 is getting ready to open a second location, and this one will be in Vancouver.
John 3:16 Malaysian Delights, named for the widely-quoted biblical passage, has taken over the space at 1063 W Broadway in what had previously been Kaya Malay Bistro.
A representative for John 3:16 confirmed with V.I.A. that they are moving into the Fairview spot, near Vancouver General Hospital, and that they hope to be open in April.
Previously, John 3:16 had opened a North Vancouver location while they were relocating their Richmond restaurant, however the North Van outpost has since closed.
The family-run restaurant, which launched in 2014, is known for their traditional Malaysian fare, including Roti Canai (a tender flatbread with dipping sauce), rice and noodle dishes, curries, seafood, satay (skewers), Nasi Goreng (fried rice) and Hainanese chicken.
In Richmond, John 3:16 serves lunch and dinner on Mondays through Saturdays. We'll keep our eye on their expansion into Vancouver and update when they're ready to open.
John 3:16 Malaysian Delights is located at 6838 No.3 Road in Richmond. They will be opening soon at 1063 W Broadway in Vancouver.
