Chimac, the Korean Pub and Fried Chicken restaurant is now open.    :)

 

Was hoping to find out more online but zero web presence so far.

The former photography studio in the 1000-block of Blanshard is about to become something called ParTea. Their website seems to promote their specialty as being "Cheese Tea" which does not exactly have me lining up at the door...

^^ There seemed to be a good amount of people going in and out - we were having dinner across the street at Fiamo.

Chimac Korean Fried Chicken opened at the former Matisse space across Yates from New Asian Village. I thought it was excellent, exactly what I expect from such a place and I think it will be quite popular.

I was sorry to see that Nandos in Millstream has been replaced by a Korean restaurant called the Persimmon Tree.

The Next, a Japanese restaurant in the Cook Street Village, is for sale.  Café Layla, a fairly new Lebanese restaurant downtown, is also for sale.

I've had the half order of chicken; friends and wife had the lunch special. It was good.

I've also been to Chicken 649 on Quadra. Also delicious, but I haven't eaten too much of the menu there, just the regular chicken so far.

OPENING SOON!!

Finally!! I've done ALL the work and leased a space. The very first VEGAN HIPPIE-CHICK CAFE will open in downtown Victoria British Columbia in March-ish. I'll keep you posted as we get set up. We've created a menu that supports local farms and sustainable fair trade products. On the menu we have all of our house-made organic, raw, vegan smoothies, juices, sandwiches, buddha bowls, stews, pizza, snacks and of course lots of yummy desserts. We will be doing regular videos of the fun goings on at the cafe. Also we will have a documentary day each week featuring an awesome vegan/health/environmental film... I have a few lined up so far anyone interested in giving me permission to air their film just message me on here. So if you love good fresh food stop by and visit us once we open!!!

Peace & Love, Karen (the Vegan Hippie-Chick)

1034 Fort St.   Formerly Hillary's Cheese.

I had a sandwich there. It was really tasty. I was skeptical because the "bread" appeared to be crispy corrugated cardboard but it added a unique crunch. A good alternative to the same old Subway a few doors up.

I may have missed reading about this on VV, but Solstice Cafe & Lounge, 500 block Pandora is no longer as of the end of October (a year since their big reno?) and now is replaced with "Bitchin' Biscuits".
