The Goods from Potluck Hawker Eatery
Vancouver, BC | Potluck Hawker Eatery (3424 Cambie Street) is bringing the vibrancy of after hours Southeast Asia to Cambie Village with the launch of its new Night Hawker evenings. Available only on Fridays and Saturdays, Chef Justin Cheung and his crew have crafted a fun food and drinks menu, featuring a variety of snack items, 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 world’s most lively and best night scenes, and food definitely plays a big part,” says Cheung. “Every time I visit my family in Malaysia, we’d go out for late night eats – there are so many places that are open after the sun sets. My favourite places usually have sharable items and dishes that go well with an ice, cold beer. We’d stay up so late to chat and catch-up over good food.”
Potluck’s Night Hawker menu is available starting from 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. It consists of a full alcoholic drinks menu at 20 percent off, zero-proof beverages, and snacks for $10 each. There is also a large plates section for $15 each, as well as combos. Menu examples include:
Roti Grilled Cheese – Potluck’s roti canai with American Cheese and curry sauce

“The Night Hawker menu will be available until the end of summer,” adds Cheung. “During the summer heat in Vancouver, I definitely crave certain foods at night. It could be slurping back a bowl of soupy noodles, or eating something grilled or BBQed, like our skewers. The menu features items my team and I would like to see during late night happy hour. There are many options!”
