A wildly popular Korean fried chicken spot with outposts all over the world is coming to Burnaby. Say hello to Pelicana, the newest name in Metro Vancouver’s already fantastic fried chicken scene. Let’s see what we can expect for when it opens.

Pelicana has been around for close to four decades with over 2000 locations in Korea alone. But, there’s actually only one other spot in Canada, and it’s in Edmonton. Frankly, we doubt we’ll get there anytime soon.

Which is why we’re excited about this one! Pelicana will offer all the classic Korean styles of fried chicken, like hot, garlic, soy, and original. Plus, they’ve got their own seasoning mix that we’re going to need to try out. Maybe some fries or some cheese sticks alongside it for the full experience, too.

Pelicana will be located at the Lougheed Plaza in Burnaby. No word yet on an exact opening date, but we’ll keep you posted!
