“Ode to Adobo”: Duck leg confit, Filipino sausage & edamame cassoulet, pomme purée.

“Luv U So Matcha”: Matcha green tea cheese tart, raspberry coulis, crispy white chocolate pearls.

Papi’s Seafood Dine Out Vancouver 2020

Papi’s Seafood Dine Out Vancouver 2020

Torafuku Vancouver | Lunch Menu

Torafuku Vancouver | Lunch Menu

Torafuku in Vancouver’s Chinatown is now open for lunch service and I’m very excited. I’ve been a fan of this “Lucky Tiger” since it started as an Asian Fusion food truck “Le Tigre”. I’ve been here for events and during Dine Out Vancouver – not…

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!

The Ginger Beef is legit. It is the original family recipe from The Silver Inn in Calgary.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

The Deck Kitchen at the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond (near the YVR Airport) recently renovated. The menu focus is West Coast Cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Their Ginger Beef is legit. It is the original family recipe from The Silver Inn in Calgary. The owner is related.

If you remember the old Pier 73, the 70’s bar was old, tired and the food wasn’t very good. The Deck is now modern, spacious and has a gorgeous patio view.

It’s actually funny because I’ve seen their patio deck up for expansion, renovation and the wait for permits – my office is literally just around the corner.

The other day, I came here for media tasting with Sherman. It was great catching up.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

GINGER BEEF $16: This tender meaty ginger beef was crispy with a nice thin coat of chilli sauce without being too sweet. It uses nice cuts of striploin. Trust me, it is not chewy and dry! The recipe is a family legacy since 1975.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

FISH N CHIPS 1 piece $18 / 2 pieces $22: This nice crispy golden flaky lingcod is served with a side of crispy fries and slaw and tartar sauce. The slaw was a bit watery and I’ve gotten to take preference on a no-mayo coleslaw instead.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

DOUBLE DECK BURGER $19: This meaty 8 oz burger was pretty solid and is filled with thick-cut crispy bacon, fresh tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, burger sauce, fries & salad garnish.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

MOULES FRITES $9: This is always one of my favourite patio orders. The juicy and plump mussels were served in a nice butter, garlic, white wine, tomato, herbs broth. Comes with a side of golden crispy fries.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

STEVESTON Flatbread $16: This thin and crunchy flatbread included clams, prawns, garlic cream, crispy potato, mozza, bacon, fennel, and mirepoix. The white cream sauce and cheese was a nice mellow pairing to the fresh seafood ingredients.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

TUNA STACK $18: furikake albacore, yam, cucumber, avocado, ssamjang, eel sauce, sticky rice, sesame tempura crisp, nori. This was perhaps my least favourite as it was a little too saucy and overpowered the albacore tuna profile.

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

CALAMARI FRITO $14: potato starch, jalapeños, preserved lemon, yam, crispy onion, cilantro, cocktail sauce, lime aioli. Perhaps a little too batter for my liking but the calamari themselves were super fresh!

THE DECK BAR RICHMOND NOMSS.COM CANADA FOOD BLOG

Deep-Fried Sea Bass (off the menu): I love fish and this deep fried sea bass was tender, moist and perfectly cooked. The green onions and soy dressing was delightful. I could eat this all day!

Overall, I love the rebranding. The Deck in Richmond is a great place to visit for food and drinks with killer views and a spacious patio – especially on a nice summer’s day.

Georges At The Cove San Diego California (La Jolla) | Best Patio View and Burgers

Georges At The Cove San Diego California (La Jolla) | Best Patio View and Burgers

What does one think of when you travel to San Diego? When I was there recently all I could think of was all the attractions – Legoland (be sure to try Granny’s Apple Fries), Sea World , San Diego Zoo, USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, etc. Little did I think to go to Old Town San Diego – They have some really authentic Mexican food such as Old Town Mexican Cafe or La Jolla until I started researching for my San Diego trip. Let’s begin with La Jolla (lə-hoy-ə)!

La Jolla (meaning “The Jewel” in Spanish) is an upscale beach community in San Diego home to breathtaking beautiful beaches, gorgeous scenery along curving coastlines of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California and northern perimeters of San Diego.

Georges At The Cove is nestled in this beautiful community of fine restaurants, hotels, art galleries, eclectic collection of boutiques and astounding beaches much resembles White Rock 60 mins drive from Vancouver, BC for its laid-back atmosphere. 180 degrees overlooking La Jolla Cove, George’s is a great place to visit to experience San Diego’s lifestyle… Soak in ocean mist and experience innovative, contemporary fresh seafood.

 

Much like the Market (Jean-Georges) in Vancouver, George’s At The Cove also offers multiple dining experiences – ie. three levels to their venue. 1. Rooftop terrace – casual menu with ocean mist and breathtaking view of the coastline; 2. Midlevel bar – lounge area with some water view; 3. Lower Level – formal dining (George’s California Modern) with selected tables offering some water view. I hear this section offers some of the best food available. Executive Chef and Partner, Trey Foshee (tweet him @TreyFoshee) joined forces with California Olive Ranch (COR), North America’s largest olive oil producer since 1999 bringing culinary freshness and innovations to La Jolla.

Marinated and Grilled Fresh Fish Tacos $13: Soft shell tacos were warm and the fish was seasoned perfectly and the juicy sauces just drips down your hand. Be prepared, it gets somewhat messy. Mango salsa, jalapeno-lime creme fraiche, guacamole and shredded cabbage gave a refreshing lift to every bite. Served with Christmas color tortilla chips and pickled veggies.

DSC_6059

Seared Rare Ahi $15: An abundant of perfectly seared ahi tuna over a bed of chilled Japanese soba noodle salad with wasabi-soy vinaigrette. The flavors were just right and did not overpower the tender pieces of tuna.

DSC_6057

Blackened Seasonal Fish Sandwich $13.50: Avocado, lettuce, onions, tomato,cucumber-yogurt relish. Served with a bed of mixed spring greens. Light yet filling. Seasoned fish was just right!

DSC_6053

Grilled Niman Ranch Beef Burger $12.50: Served with lettuce, tomato, onion and fries with maytag blue cheese, sweet onion marmalade with pepper jack and roasted anaheim chile +2.50 with aged cheddar and bacon +2.50. So big it is hard biting into. Holding it was challenging even for the boys. The patty was cooked delicious juicy. The fries were crispy and not oily. Overall a great burger to get your hands dirty with.

Mexican Style Shrimp Cocktail $14: Spicy tomato sauce with cucumber, onion, lime, cilantro and avocado

We also recommend

  • George’s Famous Soup – smoked chicken, broccoli and black beans
  • Mahi Mahi – potato gnocchi, pancetta, artichoke, shiitake mushrooms, red wine-grape vinaigrette
  • Steak Frites – hanger steak, red wine onions, blue cheese butter, french fries
  • Local White Seabass – artichokes, baby leeks, fennel, preserved lemon,pan con tomate, black olive oil
  • Maine Lobster Seafood Stew – toasted pasta, marcona almonds, orange aioli

Stay for the night if possible, it is truly gorgeous during sunset and when it gets dark. The boardwalk along side the coastline is tantalizing while you overlook sea otters sleep and play in the waters.
