Toronto's most photogenic Chinese restaurant has shut down
SoSo Food Club has closed after two years of serving Chinese noodles and cocktails on Dundas West.
The pink-and-blue-interiored restaurant which took over IG feeds when it first opened in 2018 is now shuttered permanently, according to its owners.
"It has been a hell of a ride sharing this experiment in combining our love of Chinese food, neon, natural wine, cocktails and dancing, all in one space," said SoSo's owners on Instagram.
To our dearest friends & family, Thank you so much for supporting SoSo over the last two years. It has been a hell of a ride sharing this experiment in combining our love of Chinese food, neon, natural wine, cocktails and dancing, all in one space. We’ve come to the tough decision to not reopen the restaurant as is on the other side of this pandemic. While we are going to miss this little community we’ve built, we are also excited to share with you what we have been fermenting over the last few months with @grapecrush.wine Keep watching this space, we will be announcing some happier news so so soon. As we like to say in Chinese, see you again. 再见!
"We’ve come to the tough decision to not reopen the restaurant as is on the other side of this pandemic."
Started by a number of Toronto restaurant owners, including Nancy Chen and Nav Sangha from Otto's Bierhalle and Daniel Tai from Dudebox, SoSo took over what used to be The Contender with restaurant service and weekend parties.
According to owners, it was difficult to transition SoSo to take-out and delivery.
Instead the team will focus on Juicebox Bar, a new wine bar by the Grape Crush Wine program (which started as an event series). It's been doing same-day delivery out of the SoSo space during the pandemic.
The new bar, which offers natural and biodynamic wines, is open from Wednesday to Saturday, for takeout and patio sipping.
