Chowmenow launches a website targeted to finding $5 lunch deals in Vancouver


Chowmenow announced today the launch of its new community The new website is targeted to assist Vancouverites in finding$5 lunch meals. Through the site, users are able to find lunch deals based on their location, while also gaining access to restaurant reviews, ratings, and pictures uploaded by other users.

“There are lots of sites dedicated to finding restaurants, but there isn’t one on a mission to find a good lunch for only 5 dollars. A lot of people think that you need to spend a ton of money to get a good meal, but a lot of the time five dollars is more than enough. We are all very excited to share the cheap eats love.”–CEO Aden Klein.

The new website is aimed to cater to four distinctive demographics; workers, students, tourists, and seniors. Chowmenow will serve as a restaurant guide for finding lunches five dollars or under based on user demographics and interests. Users will be able to rate and review restaurants, as well as create public profiles for themselves. While the main focus is on restaurant information—the social networking element will allow users to connect and interact with each other, creating a future online community.

Cheap-eaters rejoice.

    This is great!  Lunch prices in this city are a killer and sorry to say it, higher than in Toronto.  If I’m going to pay $15 for a burger it’s going to be from Allen’s on the Danforth.

    Absolutely agree with you. Hope you enjoy the website.

    Recently found a kick ass deal in Yaletown no less. I’m a temp worker and have been shell shocked at how expensive everything is downtown. I was getting SOOOO sick of the $5 deli subs at Subway, but this week found a place that offers $5 stir fry lunch bowls. Made to order and tasteeee. Yum. You gotta try it.

    LOL, sorry, almost logged out w/o saying what it’s called. It’s called Fuse and hard to find as it’s actually behind the rest of the restaurants. Behind the french cafe on Mainland, entrance was in the parking lot.
