Hungry Guys Kitchen is a fast casual restaurant conveniently located on bustling Granville Street in Downtown Vancouver. The name is a tribute to our mother who would ask us as soon as we stepped in the door “ Are you hungry, guys?” We’re open for lunch and dinner, serving burritos, bowls and salads in an easy-going urban casual vibe. Come in if you want good food fast, but stay a while too since we have cool music and wi-fi. Owner Aldo Velaj learned how to cook with his mother, started cooking at the age of 15, worked at different restaurants over the years, and finally creating Hungry Guys Kitchen. Our goal is to serve the public food that they would serve themselves and their family members. Tasty, healthy, fresh, belly filling but not busting, put a smile on your face food.
Question: How are you supporting other local businesses?
Question: What social and environmental practices are you proud of?
Answer: Besides supporting local vendors, we want to add to Granville Street and Vancouver, so we keep our business and the sidewalk area out front impeccably clean.
We donate to local causes. We get approached by small causes and charities, and we provide them with gift certificates, and we also support some local events. We also support local artists! We purchased all the art in the restaurant from local artists.
Of course we recycle and compost everything we can out of the kitchen. We’ve used compostable take out materials since we opened in 2015. I believe in the power of consumers to make positive change, and hope that we can all do our part to reduce plastics and other waste by making better purchasing decisions.
