Vancouver’s North Shore boasts some of the most incredible views of the city. Surrounded by lush trees and snow-covered mountains, it’s a great place to enjoy many of winter’s finest things – snowboards, sweaters, and soup. Warm up with some of the tastiest soups in town and try some comforting flavours from around the world.
1440 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
If you’re a laksa fan, look no further. With delicious noodles, savory vegetables, and the perfect amount of spice – the milky essence of laksa is sure to warm you up from the inside out. Choose from your choice of Assam Seafood, Malaysian, and Singapore laksa. Be sure to pair it with an order of Roti Canai, the sweet fried bread makes a great add-on.
The Neighbourhood Noodle House
1352 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Don’t be fooled by the name – The Neighbourhood Noodle House boasts an eclectic menu that doesn’t always include noodles. As locals know, this restaurant is home to the North Shore’s best wontons (in my opinion) and a curing congee that’ll get rid of all your winter ailments.
The Soup Meister
#103-123 Carrie Cates Court, Lonsdale Quay Market, North Vancouver
Think of a soup place with all of your favourites and more. Chowder, chicken noodle, and decadent daily specials that you can eat right on-the-spot or take home for later. It’s also a local go-to for gravies and a tasty borscht that’ll outdo even your grandmother’s best recipe. Plus, Lonsdale Quay has incredible city views that will make you want to eat outside even if it’s -2.
The Raven Pub
1052 Deep Cove Rd, North Vancouver
Known in the neighbourhood for their pizza, “The Raven” also serves a tasty Moroccan Chickpea Soup that goes down deliciously after a chilly day up Seymour Mountain. Great on the side with a salad or their famous poutine. Keep an eye out for live music nights and of course their drink specials. (This place is family friendly as well.)
