This ‘inexpensive’ street food is made fresh under a staircase in Burnaby

By  Burnaby Now |

A Burnaby street food vendor has been going strong for 20 years in the exact same location — underneath a staircase in the busy commuter neighbourhood of Burquitlam.

Kim’s Korean Waffles and Pancakes has fired up its griddle and cast-iron wheel as of Sept. 15 at Hannam Market, located at 4501 North Rd.

This, just in time to warm up local residents, foodies and commuters for the fall and winter months of 2023 and 2024 as the local “hidden gem” is closed during the summer.

According to Kim’s, the business prides itself on providing “inexpensive” street food options, bungeoppang (waffles) and hotteok (pancakes), for those on-the-go and that everything is fresh to order.
