Origins in Chinese Culture
The Dolar Shop specializes in Hot Pot, a traditional Chinese dish that originates from Macau, China. Widely recognized as the Las Vegas of the East, Macau is a vibrant and bustling city defined by bright lights, exceptional entertainment and culinary experiences, and a hybrid culture that merges East with West. Here, hot pot is one of the most beloved styles of dining, and one that encourages friends and family to connect over food and share a dining experience.
In 2015, the team behind The Dolar Shop, inspired by the East/West culture of Macau, began creating their own fish balls and slices of high-grade beef, pairing them with an exceptional blend of homemade sauces to create a totally unique dining experience. They were inspired to share the food with the world and opened The Dolar Shop – naming the restaurant after the Chinese world Dolar which signifies the willingness to work hard to achieve prosperity. Here was a place where Chinese-Canadians could relish in familiar flavors, and where those new to hot pot could experience an intricate part of Macau dining culture.
