When 2 Duck Goose closed in November 2015, Ch’ien told us she would be “re-working the concept” of the restaurant. She spent early 2016 traveling in Thailand, Singapore, and Hong Kong (Ch’ien’s home town) for inspiration.
“I really loved our food, and I was really proud of our food,” she told Eater last November. “Ultimately, I felt like it wasn’t exactly what the neighborhood wanted.”
The restaurant posted on Facebook about their successful “family and friends” opening early this week and will have a soft opening for the public on Wednesday, June 8.
Carlos Barrera, who served as the former sous-chef of 2 Duck Goose, will now be the Executive Chef for Hey Hey Canteen. Consulting Chef Irene Khin Wong joins the team. She is the founder of catering company Saffron 59.
The all-day menu features noodles, salads, and their Hong Kong Fried Chicken Sandwich. A kids menu is also available.
We’ll be heading in for a review soon, but please share your thoughts with us about the restaurant if you beat us to it!
