Slocan’s Closing in Vancouver But Can’t Keep Secret Greek Diner Down

What five Greek owners called a “secret Greek” diner, Slocan’s, in Vancouver is closing because of redevelopment in the neighborhood but the current proprietor, who goes by Tasoe, said a reincarnation might be coming.

The Vancouver is Awesome site said the restaurant was known for its classic American-style greasy spoon fare and Tasoe said it had a very loyal base, reporting on Yelp that,  “the Slocan is owned by its customers and I am simply a custodian. A landmark of the neighbourhood, decades of families, longshoremen, ambulance personnel, hockey stars, plumbers, politicians have all passed through and continue to patronize us!! All I want to do is feed you well!!”

It had an especially big following for its massive breakfast platters as well as for night owls wrapping up entertainment elsewhere and in need of some good chow fast, cooked up by Greeks who know how to do it, dishing out what he said is “made with love at a great price”

He hinted there may be a comeback on the table, posting a message on social media: “Watch out for 2.0-Keep you posted!”


Theodoros Pavlakos is descended from the people of Molaoi in the Peloponnese.
