Chef Angus An’s Freebird Chicken Shack Reopened In New West’s ‘River Market’


The GOODS from Freebird Chicken Shack

Vancouver, BC | Freebird Chicken Shack by Chef Angus An reopens tomorrow, Saturday April 22, at New Westminster’s River Market. After a short move from the previous location and some quick renovations, the newly revamped Freebird can be found at #112–810 Quayside Drive, in the market’s lower floor. The 800-square-foot counter-service eatery will seat 24, including 4 bar stools.

The larger kitchen allows for an expanded menu, and Chef Angus is adding fried and grilled items for eat-in or takeout orders. New offerings include: an 8-Piece Bucket of Fried Chicken ($25), and a Grilled Chicken Vermicelli Bowl with fermented pork, fresh herbs, and nuoc cham (small for $11 or large for $15). There’s also Turmeric Fried Chicken with curry and roti ($11/$15) or smaller sides like Fried Brussel Sprouts or Fried Cauliflower for $6. Watch for liquor to be added to the list before the market’s busy summer season.
