Hon's in Richmond

Does anyone know why it's closed? It seems like -- suddenly it's just gone *poof* Too much competition? The Robson location is still opened, AFAIK.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

All Hon's are closed. I heard it's due to some bad investments. But yea, Hon's is no more, for now at least

the Hon's owner owed over $500,000 in back taxes to CRA for undisclosed income
they have been borrowing money just to pay the workers wages, workers haven't got paid for so long

chinese ppl, cash business, under the table shady business and unfortunately they were caught by the government

I remember I was driving behind Hon's in Richmond once, and I saw a delivery truck unloading stock into the restaurant. A barrel of white powder (salt or flour or MSG) fell over, and spilled all over the floor of the truck. The delivery guy just swept it all back into the barrel, right off the floor.

And I have never eaten at Hon's since.

The hons in dt is actually decent. It's a place vegetarians go cuz they use a different kitchen for vegetarian food so meat won't get mixed in
