Potluck Hawker Eatery (3424 Cambie Street) brings the vibrancy of Southeast Asia after hours to Cambie Village with the launch of its new Night peddler evenings. Available only on Fridays and Saturdays, Chef Justin Cheung and his team have put together a fun food and drink menu, featuring a variety of snacks, sandos and noodles, including chicken skewers, corn ribs and som tum tod, a fried version of papaya salad.
“Southeast Asia is known for having some of the liveliest and best nightlife scenes in the world, and food certainly plays a big part,” Cheung said. “Every time I visit my family in Malaysia, we go out to eat late at night – there are so many places that are open after sunset. My favorite places usually have dishes to share and dishes that go good with an ice cold beer.We were staying up so late to chat and catch up on good food.
