NEW BEER HALL AND RESTAURANT CONCEPT ‘BELLS AND WHISTLES’ TO OPEN IN VANCOUVER’S FRASERHOOD THIS SEPTEMBER
Latest Addition to Gooseneck Hospitality’s Expanding Restaurant Roster Features 150 Seats, Wrap-Around Patio, Casual Fare and Local Craft Beer, Wine and Cocktails Exclusively On Tap. The team behind such award-winning restaurants as Wildebeest, Bufala and Lucky Taco — is set to unveil a brand-new casual dining and beer hall concept when it opens the doors on Bells and Whistles at 3296 Fraser Street in the burgeoning Fraserhood district this September.
Open for lunch, dinner and late-night drinks seven days a week with seating for 150 guests in its 3,000-sq.-ft. dining room and wrap-around heated outdoor patio, Bells and Whistles is the latest venture for Gooseneck, which includes respected restaurateurs James Iranzad and Josh Papeas well as new Bells and Whistles co-partner and longtime Gooseneck employee Nick Miller.
With a menu comprising homespun, locally and ethically sourced dishes designed by Wildebeest Executive Chef Alessandro Vianello, Bells and Whistles will serve up burgers, tacos and fresh salads, ballpark-inspired fare like chili and garlic fries, as well as a selection of soft-serve ice cream flavours.
Boasting a full bar that offers a rotating selection of notable craft and import beers in addition to ciders, cocktails and wine all available exclusively on tap, Bells and Whistles brings together the best of the local brewery scene as well as one-of-a-kind creations like imperial stout floats and citrus-forward IPA soft-serve beer pairings and slushie concoctions such as frozen radlers.
Designed by Milltown Contracting and Ricky Alvarez of Tinto Creative, Bells and Whistles also features an interactive games room that offers Skee-Ball, hoops and foosball tables with complimentary Happy-Hour plays, floor-to-ceiling windows with plenty of natural light and big screens showing live local and international big-league sports action.
“Our mission is to bring a restaurant that is anything but ordinary to the Fraserhood,” says Miller. “We’ve gone to great lengths to design an out-of-the-box, approachable space and we’re excited to introduce a whole new concept not only to the area, but to Vancouver as a whole.”
Further details regarding Bells and Whistles will be revealed in the coming weeks. For more information on Bells and Whistles or to stay up to date on its latest developments, go to www.bellsandwhistlesyvr.ca.

We finally decided to try HAAN Korean BBQ in Coquitlam after an intense craving for barbecue meat! We were not disappointed. The restaurant is clean and service is friendly. I like the interior. It also helped that it was well ventilated and you don’t leave smelling like the food itself!
They offer high quality cuts of meat. There is a two order minimum for meats. We ordered Marinated Beef Rib $30 each portion and also the Sliced Beef Tongue $17 each portion. The meats were tender, juicy and well flavoured.
Like most Korean restaurants, it came with a variety of Banchan sides: potato salad, kimchi, pickled radish, etc. I wish they had sprouts and fish cakes though.
Mixed Rice in Hot Stone Pot (Bibimbap) 10: The rice came in a sizzling hot stone bowl with a good mix of ingredientes like sprouts, carrots, marinated pork, mushrooms, etc. I love the crispy charred rice in the end. Make sure you mix in some namul and gochujang!
We can’t wait to come back next time we have another Korean BBQ craving!

New Counter-Service Restaurant Serves Up Modern Takes on Middle Eastern Fare, Local Beer, Spiked Drinks Seven Days a Week. Superbaba — a new counter-service concept that mixes the authentic and familiar flavours of the Middle East with the laid back feel and fare of the West Coast — is now open at 1325 Blanshard St. in the heart of downtown Victoria.
With licensed indoor seating for 38 and another 12 on an outdoor patio, Superbaba is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. The menu features fresh, faithful takes on Middle Eastern favourites like falafel and hummus in a variety of bowls, sandwiches and sides, as well as chicken and steak kebabs, fresh-baked pita, turmeric cookies, iced Turkish coffee, house-made pickles and fried cauliflower.
Superbaba derives its name both from the kitschy ‘super’ monikers common to shawarma and falafel shops found throughout the Middle East as well as a familial nod to ‘baba’, which means ‘dad’ in a number of languages. The restaurant represents a unique collaborative culinary venture that sees Tacofino co-owners Jason Sussman and Ryan Spong, Robbie Kane of Vancouver’s Café Medina and Josh Carlsen and Mike Dawson of Tacofino Victoria join forces with Abdallah El Chami of The Dallah Menu.
“Superbaba was born out of a common desire to not just serve Middle Eastern food but to create the closest version that works for the palate of the Western world,” says El Chami, who spent months in Lebanon tracing his roots and learning the time-honoured traditions and techniques of his ancestors before launching the new Victoria venture. “We have created a menu that is inspired, packed with flavor and will leave our guests thinking about it long after their last bite.”
Décor-wise, Superbaba showcases a ‘casual-meets-quirky’ esthetic where arch motifs common to traditional Middle Eastern architecture unite with neon signage and bold, contemporary colours as well as warm wood tones, textured walls, oversized globe lighting and blue speckled quartz countertops. The space was designed by Studio Roslyn’s Kate Snyder and Jessica MacDonald, who formerly worked at Vancouver design firm Ste. Marie and helped design such notable and award-winning restaurants as Osteria Savio Volpe and Kissa Tanto.
Beyond satisfying the appetites of its own guests, Superbaba will also join the fight to end youth hunger by partnering with Mealshare — a national non-profit that teams with restaurants like Café Medina and Tacofino Victoria in cities across Canada — to provide meals at at-risk youth. Following Mealshare’s ‘buy-one, give-one’ model, for each Mealshare-branded item Superbaba sells, it will contribute financially to Mealshare, which in turn will forward those funds to its network of local partner charities to purchase the groceries and ingredients needed for a meal.
ABOUT SUPERBABA | Located at the corner of Blanshard and Johnson in the heart of downtown Victoria, Superbaba is a counter-service restaurant that mixes the authentic and familiar flavours of the Middle East with the quintessentially laidback feel and fare of the West Coast. Superbaba offers a fresh, modern spin on old favourites, local craft beer on tap and spiked drinks and a ‘casual-quirky’ décor that blends bold, contemporary colours and neon signage with traditional design motifs common to Middle Eastern shawarma and falafel shops.
