Now Open: Mèreon, Meo and Ho Yuen Cafe

A fresh sheet uncovering the city’s newest restaurants.

What’s opened recently in Vancouver? Lots and lots… but here are three spots worth checking out first.

Go for Croque

West Vancouver’s new French restaurant, Mèreon, is worth braving the bridge for: the croque monsieur, croque madame and croque forestièr put standard sandwiches to shame. The brunch spot also serves duck confit cassoulet and a burger made with teriyaki prime rib, gruyère and bacon.

Opened January 2024 | 1479 Clyde Ave., West Vancouver

Morning Glory

Single-boned chicken wings, BBQ pork rice and ginger-sauced beef vermicelli are all on the menu at Ho Yuen Cafe, a half-century- old Hong Kong breakfast/lunch restaurant that has officially landed in Vancouver. Pineapple buns, here we come.

Opened February 2024 | 113-1750 W 75th Ave.

Ho Yuen Cafe

Veggie Tales

The restaurateurs behind Kissa Tanto and Bao Bei walk into a bar… and that bar is Meo, the newest concept from the much-awarded team. Meo’s drinks menu is meant to defy traditional expectations of fruits and vegetables. What the heck does that mean? We’ll have to sip and see.

Opened March 2024 | 265 E Pender St.
