Chinese Skewer King


Last Friday I was walking downtown around lunch time feeling a tad peckish. Naw, I was fucking hungry. I was heading down Burrard towards Hastings where I thought I’d grab a Japadog. But instead, this was here.


And I was okay with it. In fact, I am very happy that City Hall has elected to expand the street food industry with such an expansive program. Here’s a great outline of what the downtown core offers right now. Courtesy of Miss604!
