Fat Mao, which translates to “Lucky Cat” in Cantonese, is the latest food venture from acclaimed Vancouver chef Angus An (of Vancouver’s Thai restaurants Maenam and Longtail Kitchen).

Officially opening this week (Wednesday, August 19), Fat Mao promises patrons informal all-day dining. Indeed, the 25 seat causal noodle bar, located at 217 East Georgia Street, in the city’s Chinatown, features a concise list of quick and enticing noodle bowls, available during both lunch and dinner service.

Inspired by popular street food during his travels in Asia, An recreates his favourite dishes, from flavour-packed curries to vegetable laden cold noodles, prepared fresh with house-made stocks and noodles.

Starters include small bites of house seasonal pickles, a Chinatown Salad (comprised of a colourful mix of local market greens), Braised Tripe Salad (surprisingly tender, aromatic and dressed in a house-made Szechuan chilli oil), Century Egg with House Tofu (a gelatinous adventure for your palate), and An Mama’s Scallion Pancake (hot, chewy, and addictively delicious).

Offering an honest and refreshing take on Asian cuisines, Fat Mao’s noodle menu (approachably priced at $12 or less) includes Dan Dan Noodles, which deliver a strong wallop of heat, and the delightfully savoury Cold Sesame Noodles, which are perfectly paired with fresh, crisp veggies. The menu also features Braised Duck Noodles, Changmai Curry Noodles, and Taiwanese Beef Noodles.

Fat Mao’s hours of operation are Wednesday through to Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. or until the noodles run out — whichever comes first.
