This creamy, thick chia pudding is easy to make, packed full of nutrients and antioxidants like Vitamin C and folate for a healthy kick during breakfast, lunch or dessert! All it takes is 3 ingredients and countless variation. Totally customizable to your personal preference!

Make it dairy-free with oat milk or your choice of milk alternatives like coconut milk, almond milk, cashew milk, hemp milk, etc. I chose oat milk for its neutral taste, creaminess and viscosity. Use creamier type milk for creamier, thicker pudding.

We always have BC Frozen Blueberries at home because we love the taste of summer year-round. BC Blueberries are plump and extremely juicy! You can purchase BC Blueberries at the frozen section of any supermarket.

How To Make Chia Pudding

Tojo’s Vancouver Happy Hour Menu

Tojo’s Vancouver Happy Hour Menu

Tojo’s is a Japanese restaurant in Vancouver that is internationally acclaimed for creating exquisite food. Chef Hidekazu Tojo creates dishes that are fresh, unique with a modern twist yet rooted in Japanese fine dining traditions.

The restaurant is spacious, featuring a sushi bar, cocktail and sake bar, lounge area and dining room.

I was invited to Tojo’s for the launch of their new Happy Hour menu beginning December between Monday to Saturday (4 to 6 pm).

Tojo’s Happy Hour Menu

Tojo’s Happy Hour menu features exclusive cocktails crafted by BC Barman Jeff Savage from Fairmont Pacific Rim. There is a variety of both raw and cooked food and yakitori options.

Drinks

  • Japanese Highball – inspired by the delicate, nuanced whisky highball so popular in Japan. This drink combines Suntory Toki with Bitter Sling Lem-Marrakech Bitters and soda.
  • Tokaido 53 – A vibrant martini riff inspired by journeys on the ancient road connecting Kyoto and Edo. Bison Grass Vodka, Kazuku Gin, Herb and Citrus Oil.
  • Salaryman – A stern cocktail best used to signal the end of the workday. Japanese Whisky Blend, Notes of Matcha and Black Sesame.
  • Tojo’s Milk Punch – Eastern flavours and Western techniques meets in this milk punch, named after the Iconoclast himself. Bank’s 5 Island Rum, Shiso, Sencha, Mint, Lime, Clarified Milk.
  • Kitsune Gimlet – A bright, fresh cocktail that’s as cunning and playful as it’s mythical namesake Kazuku Gin, Yuzu and Honey.
  • Nitobe Garden Fizz – Vibrancy and earthly bounty come together in this drink honouring the beautiful Nitobe Memorial Garden. Seedlip Garden 108, Matcha, Herb, Citrus Oil, Soda

Food

  • Tofu Ankake
  • Miso Mustard Lotus Root
  • Tojo’s Chowder
  • Tojo’s Tuna
  • Royal Chicken
  • BBQ Scallop
  • Dashimaki + Caviar
  • Tojo’s Roll (aka California Roll)
  • Dragon’s Sweet Potatoes
  • Citrus and Sea Salt Wings
  • Wagyu Sukiyaki

We ended the evening with Okonomiyaki. This housemade Japanese pancake was hearty yet made with a light batter without a lot of flour used. Just plenty of shredded cabbage, shrimp and scallops.

Tojo’s Happy Hour is worth checking out and the food pairs nicely with the cocktail options. Unwind after a long day’s work or simply enjoy some pre-drinks before dinner service!

I was invited by Tojo’s for a menu tasting. All opinions are my own.

Torafuku Vancouver | Lunch Menu

Afuri Ramen + Dumplings Richmond | 阿夫利

Afuri Ramen + Dumplings Richmond | 阿夫利

AFURI RAMEN from Japan is now open in Vancouver (well, Richmond to be exact!) Afuri Ramen + Dumplings is located at 140-7971 Alderbridge Way next to Chunyang Bubble Tea. The Afuri brand was established in 2001 with locations across Japan, Portland, and soon to be opened in Hong Kong. I was excited about last night’s media review, tasting and first look before it opens official at 11 am today January 7, 2020.

The restaurant seats 59. It is spacious, bright with high ceilings. Afuri uses a self-ordering kiosk system. Simply place your order at one of the three kiosks, take your ticket and wait at your table.

Afuri’s signature broth and ramen noodles are prepared fresh daily in-house. The chicken-based broth serves approximately 500 bowls of. 300 lbs of chicken (meat and bones), 3 types of dried fish, kombu seaweed, and plenty of fresh vegetables are boiled at 90 degrees – separating the fat and the clear broth. The fat is later added back to your bowl when its ready to be served.

Another signature of Afuri is their Yuzu Broth (Shio, Shoyu, Ratan, Tsuyu Tsukemen). The yuzu broth is refreshing and fragrant, closely resembling that of the grapefruit, with overtones of mandarin orange.  The intensity and aroma of fresh yuzu is incredible without being overpowering.

Yuzu Shio Ramen 16: This light and refreshing ramen noodle is my favourite. It is fragrant and goes well with the thinner ramen noodles. This would be equally perfect in the Summer months when a typical Tonkotsu would be otherwise too rich and heavy. This yuzu broth is much lighter than Marutama.

Tonkotsu Shio 17: The broth is rich and flavourful with a layer of black garlic oil on top but still lighter than most Tonkotsu broths commonly found in Vancouver.

The chashu pork was very tender and flavour and the optional sides were all quite nice. I especially liked the fried garlic but wished they would have the option to add more finely chopped green onions.

Other Food Options

  • Gohan Rice Bowls: Afuri also offers 4 types of rice bowls ($7-9)
  • Kakuni Pork Gohan (with marinated chashu pork cubes)
  • Tantanmen Gohan (with minced ginger pork
  • Karaage Gohan
  • Kimchee Gohan (vegetarian)

The gohan rice bowls are topped with a slow cooked runny egg, bamboo shoots, frisee, green onion, pickled ginger, togarashi, nori and is generously portioned.

Buta Dumplings 10: The pan-fried gyozas are deliciously crispy with a juicy meaty filling.   

Chicken Karaage 7: Nicely deep fried with a crispy coat of seasoning and served with a yuzu kosho egg salad dipping mayo and fried shishito pepper.

Buns: 3 types of buns ($6-8)

  • Kakuni Pork Bun
  • Spicy Chicken Bun
  • Soft Shell Crab (spicy mayo and kimchi)

We also sampled few signature cocktails including

  • Endomame – house snap pea vodka, lemon, egg white and mint
  • Hanami – tequila, aperol, pierre ferrand cognac, lemon, honey and bitters
  • Homemade Gingerale
  • Yuzu Limeade

Overall, Afuri Ramen + Dumplings in Richmond is off to a great start and I’m excited to revisit this again. Arrive early to avoid disappointment as there will be long line ups during the first while of its official opening!
