Hope’s newest restaurant opens to rave reviews

The Globe International Cuisine hopes to encompass different cultures in their menu.

Social media is buzzing about Hope’s latest restaurant, the Globe International Cuisine.

The restaurant opened its doors in the Uptown Mall on July 4, and has received many kudos on Facebook that praised their quality of food.

“We’re just trying to do some a little different for Hope,” said co-owner Dave Cluderay.

“Obviously, we started small because we’re just doing takeout, but we’re definitely going to expand once we’re a fully functioning dining room.

Cluderay and her business partner LaRee Russell are hoping to expand the menu over time, with the goal of encompassing different cuisines from different cultures.

“We want to cover a lot of different cuisines, like pastas — so Italian. We’d like to incorporate some Mexican. Some stuff from the Southern States [and] Indian cuisine. Just a very broad spectrum.”

Russell adds that the restaurant will also serve up regular fare, such as pasta and burgers, both of which are already her customers’ favourites.

The restaurant will add fish and chips to its menu soon, made possible after Russell acquired a second deep fryer. She believes her patrons will receive fish and chips very well.

Currently, the Globe is only serving a smaller version of what their full menu will offer. They do not currently have a liquor licence, but they are aiming to get it.

“I would say in a month or possibly Brigade Days would be a very good starting point,” said Cluderay.

The Globe currently has two others working in it including Russell’s daughter, Kendra and summer employee Ben Mazerolle.

“It’s been humbling. Hope has been so receptive and doing so much advertising for us via Facebook,” said Russell.

As part of their efforts to give back to the community, Cluderay and Russell organize weekly charity events, where they would offer a dollar of each meal from its specials to a charity. They will then match these dollar contributions.

“I grew up in Hope so I want to give back to the community that I grew up in, so we’ll go through all the non-profits in Hope and then start repeating and circling back again,” she said.

They recently raised $30 for Our Last Hope Pet Rescue and $40 for the Grace Baptist Church’s Guatemala trip.

Russell has lived in Hope since she was three-years-old, but lived away for four years, before she and Cluderay decided they wanted to move to Hope.

“We just recently moved back in January, so I’ve grown up here, I’ve seen the growth, I’ve seen the changes. I’ve seen more people giving back to the community so I love it,” she said.

“Chilliwack was getting too much, and I do love the town, so you look out your window and why wouldn’t you want to move back to Hope?”
