Husband and wife team bring fresh menu to Warfield Take-Out

Lance and Soo Ewasiuk have brought Chinese food back to the village and added pizza and baked goods to Warfield Take-Out’s menu.

A trip across Canada turned into a business venture for a husband and wife team who found Warfield on the map.

Lance and Soo Ewasiuk have brought Chinese food back to the village and added pizza and baked goods to Warfield Take-Out’s menu.

“We researched a little bit and found that people wanted their Chinese food back and we figured there is no pizza so we might as well do pizza and then one day we had some dough left over and we made some bread,” said Lance.

“It just steamrolled from there.”

The Chinese menu touts favourites made from scratch like wonton soup, pork dumplings, fried rice, ginger beef and sweet and sour pork but Soo, originally from Korea, is also cooking up traditional fare like kimchi chigae soup upon customer request when she has time.

Lance has mastered pizza and likes to keep the menu wide open, encouraging customers to top their pies as they please.

The couple’s business has naturally progressed to include a wide selection of fresh baked goods out of the oven, including top sellers sweet potato bread and cinnamon buns.

But the loaves, cookies, cupcakes and breads are also offered up gluten free, a skill Soo acquired at the couple’s former business, a bakery in Nova Scotia.

The Ewasiuks listened to their B.C. calling and have settled into their new community after living in Nova Scotia for three years, and spending eight years prior in Korea, where they met.

In Asia, it didn’t take long for their little restaurant to kick off and the couple soon switched gears and opened a larger bar, bringing poutine and perogies to customers at Canada Buddy.

“We enjoy challenges and new adventures,” said Lance.

“We’re never afraid to take on a project and the biggest thing I think for us is we enjoy when people enjoy our food.”

Customer praise is enough to keep this couple happy who swear “if you want to be in the food business in small towns, you can’t do it for the money.”

Located at 870 B Schofield Highway, Warfield Take-Out is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Customers are encouraged to call ahead (368-9822) to place an order and Soo or Lance will call back when the order is ready for pick up.
