The restaurant is created by the same owners as Vancouver’s Saola restaurant, opening Fall of 2021. Their concept is to bring funky food that is creative and also delicious.

Uncle’s Snack Shop combines items like carnival corn dogs with Taiwanese sausages, ramen shake shake fries, green onion and ginger fried chicken sandwiches… to give you a small taste.
