Vancouver Tibet Kitchen - closed

Replaced by a new Chinese hand-pulled noodle resto called Yu Xiang. They were still closed when I walked by. Dunno know if this new resto has begun yet.

    Just noticed a new place is set to open in the former Flyng Tiger/ Left Coast Bistro space at 2958 West 4th. Can't recall the name but it sounded like it would be Nepalese/Himilayan food.

      So hoping to get a worthwhile restaurant in that space. The turnover has been seemingly constant, with nothing inspiring. High rent and low traffic, I suppose.

            I think islandgirl means the new resto on 4th Ave

              Ooops. Thx GE.

              Will try to TOFTT to YXY this week with the fam. Will report back on first impressions.

                Groupon for Yak & Yeti if anyone's interested: http://www.groupon.com/deals/yak-yeti-bistro?p=1&utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&sid=f2736617-5fda-4454-a50c-44d932b5cab7&division=vancouver&user=a6c98fd6988aca3e21282cff629fc12eadc42c0f57a2a1896f926f9cc1ee7c4e&date=20131130&s=body&c=deal_button&d=deal-page&utm_campaign=yak-yeti-bistro

                I might get it and trundle over there since it's hard by the homestead. Everyone should have a yak momo before they die, right? Though I'm not thrilled by the lack of a functioning website or online menu. facebook is not am adequate substitute for me. Strange that food style is listed as brunch yet they don't open till 4 pm. Perhaps I'll call and get more deets (604) 428-4422

        Found these reviews of the new place, called Yu Xiang Yuan:

        Apparently we missed the boat on their offer of free wives (or maybe just a single 'wife'):

        To be dubbed "Sha Lin #2" makes them interesting, worthy of a TOFTT ? Menu prices are sure low.

          Thx LotusRapper .. I was recently thinking about a plate of steaming momos. I'll have to head to the Himilayan kitchen on Davie st.
