THE Lunch Lady is coming to town and it’s kind of a big deal. Lunch Lady Vancouver is welcoming the woman who started it all, the Bourdain-endorsed Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thanh! This summer, Mrs. Thanh has the opportunity to visit her first-ever North American location since the pandemic started and serve Vancouverites with the truest Lunch Lady experience they’ve always hoped for.
In anticipation of the restaurant’s 2-year anniversary on Commercial Drive, Mrs. Thanh and her team at Lunch Lady Vancouver designed an exclusive 6-course menu that is slated to run for 3 days only, throughout their anniversary weekend. Between July 1 and July 3, 2022, foodies will have the opportunity to taste The Lunch Lady’s interpretation of the Great late Anthony Bourdain’s career through Mrs. Thanh’s cooking! Guests can purchase their tickets to this dinner event via OpenTable.
Apart from this event, Mrs. Thanh will also actively assist the team and will be on site every weekday starting June 28th, between 12pm and 3pm, and 6pm to 9pm. For anyone looking for a more tangible souvenir, any Vancouverite will also have the chance to purchase her recipe book at the restaurant, which is something she does at her original stall in Vietnam.
