NEW IN TOWN: A have a look at a number of the new fooderies popping up in Guelph

The sign for the new Chungchun Rice Dog on Harvard Road, along with a bird at top right, are seen on a sunny Sunday morning, with the Delta Hotels by Marriott Guelph Conference Centre on Stone Road in the background.

From Japanese eats to wings and other things, here is a look at some eateries that are popping up in Guelph.


A couple of new places and a closure can be found at the corner of Stone and Edinburgh roads, at Stonegate Plaza.

• Brand signage and more are up at one of the units that will soon be home to Edo Japan, a Japanese food place that says it’s famous for its teriyaki. Check out hiring information at

• Coming around, next to Edo, is DoughBox Wood Fired Pizza Pasta.

DoughBox “takes the next step in the pizza revolution by getting back to the basics within a quick-service environment,” says their website.

“Our signature freshly stretched dough, homemade sauces, wide range of premium ingredient choices and the flavour of a wood-fired oven will bring you to tastebud nirvana.”

That area was previously home to an eat-in, restaurant-style Pizza Hut that was there since 1985. That is now closed and earlier this year a smaller version offering carry-out and delivery opened a stones throw from Stone — on Scottsdale Drive.

• Also in the Stonegate Plaza, Omo Fresh Foods is now closed for good and “for lease” lettering is up in the windows. They still have a location in Kitchener.


• Over at Campus Estates Plaza on Harvard Road, a foodery that features wings, mac and cheese, and more opened its doors in early October.

Mac n’ Wings (35 Harvard Rd., Unit 25) has more than 100 finger-lickin’ flavours of chicken wings and 20-plus flaves of mac and cheese. Visit


• In the same plaza and not far from Mac n’ Wings is Chungchun Rice Dog (same address, Unit 16), which opened recently. Their specialty is Korean-style hot dogs. Founded in 2017, the chains first location opened in Seoul, South Korea.

“Unlike traditional flour-based batter, we add a flour made from glutinous rice, which makes our hot dogs deliciously soft and chewy,” reads their website.

Visit for more info and, of course, to check out pics of the dogs and toppings.


• On Silvercreek Parkway, a place “Where the day starts” is coming together. L’Angolo Café, which has coming soon written on its door, is next to the future Royal Paan (204 Silvercreek Pkwy. N.,), which is beside the Pita Pit there.
