Vancouver’s not so secret after-hours burger joint: Hundy
The restaurant scene in Vancouver is taking a new twist with daytime coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants moonlighting as hamburger joints, wine bars and secret long table dinners.
The team behind Vancouver’s “it restaurant” AnnaLena, opened their version of a coffee shop aptly named Their There on Canada Day in 2018 and became an instant success. With a perfect location on Kitsilano’s busy 4 Street, Their There is recognized as serving up some of the city’s best pastries along with gourmet breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Coffee comes from Portland’s Heart Roasters and brunch is served Saturday to Monday as well as holidays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In December 2018, Their There began moonlighting after hours on Friday and Saturday evenings as a hip burger joint called Hundy. Guests could order signature burgers on homemade buns with special sauce and double-cooked fries washed down with local craft beer or wine.
Hundy’s quickly became recognized as serving up one of Vancouver’s best burgers. Now open Thursday to Sunday starting at 5 p.m., Hundy’s is a neighbourhood favourite with families showing up early and the cool kids spilling in the doors at the later hours. It is now known as One Hundy with hopes that Two Hundy could be opening in the future. (Hundy is slang for a one hundred dollar bill.)
The menu has expanded slightly and along with fries or poutine, there are now four choices of burgers made from locally sourced Two Rivers meats as well as Their There’s now famous buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. Vegetarians can indulge in the veggie burger and cabbage salad.
Hundy is strictly a drop-in restaurant with no reservations. If the wait is too long, delivery is available through Uber Eats in the local hood.
