Got Lot Tea is Burnaby’s newest bubble tea shop, and they also serve some of the biggest bubble teas you can get. You can order their Ton Ton Bucket which has 1000ml of drink to enjoy—now that’s a lot of boba. They serve up all sorts of bubble tea classics and they’re open until 3 am, which is perfect for those late-night cravings.

Claudio’s Ristorante is expecting to open its doors on July 9, as first reported by Daily Hive. This new Italian spot is actually a new concept from the folks behind Pasta Amore, which shuttered in December 2021. In a previous interview, Stefano Magagnin, Pasta Amore’s general manager, told the Beacon the new eatery will “showcase the very best in both Italian and local ingredients, the newly inspired menu can be described “Dinner at Nonna’s” but elevated.”

Address: 103 4402 Skyline Drive

Gabi and Jules

Gabi and Jules recently opened up in the Burnaby Heights neighbourhood where their sister cafe,Caffe Divano, used to be. They’re now serving up delicious pies as a whole or by the slice. But don’t worry if you were a fan of Caffe Divano—they are still serving some of your favourites like their famous Crostatas.

Address: 4568 Hastings St

Sushi Box

Not much is known about Sushi Box yet except for the fact it is taking over the location where LA Sushi used to be, beside Hi Five Chicken. Sushi Box is expected to open on July 1 and we will update this entry when more information is available.

Address: 8671 10th Ave

Time & Place

Time & Place just reopened in the Hilton at Metrotown with a revamped menu. Every Wednesday to Saturday from 4 pm to 6 pm is Happy Hour where they serve appies from $8 to $12 and cheap drinks. You can get a whole pitcher of sangria for $25, it can’t get much better than that.

The Bao Place

The Bao Place is on this list not because it’s new, but because it’s closing. June 3o is their last day open before they shut down, so be sure to get some delicious bao before then. The Bao Place told the Beacon that they’ll be taking a four-month break before looking for a new location, hopefully in a similar area. We’d recommend getting some of their Pork Deluxe or their Belly Belly Pork bao before they close.

Address: 4673 Kingsway
