A restaurant ‘Gyoza Bar + Ramen’ （622 West Pender Street, Tel: 604-336-5563） are going to open in downtown, Vancouver on September 6th.
Seigo Nakamura, President of ‘Aburi Restaurants Canada’ in which ‘Aburi （sear-flaming） sushi’ was in fad, defined concepts of the restaurant as ‘new challenging to restaurant business.’ The restaurant with 85 seating and 2,600 square feet was designed by Sara Gillespie from a local design company ‘Live by Design,’ which promotes to protect global environment. Original noren （curtain） created urban, simple and chic atmosphere by utilizing natural maples and wood scraps damaged by weevil.
The restaurant undertakes to ‘create innovative menu which changes norms of normal gyoza.’ As a result of trial and error, they created ‘Fraser Valley Pork Teppan Gyoza’ （7 pieces = CAD 8, 15 pieces = CAD 16） as best recommended menu. They serve ‘crispy exterior, juicy interior and piping hot gyoza’ with cast iron pans. They also provide four types of gyoza other than pork: ‘Chili Shrimp + Pickled Daikon,’ ‘Miso Short Rib + Jalapeno-Soy Glaze,’ ‘Hainan Chicken + Ginger Scallion Rayu’ and ‘Harissa Tofu + Kabocha’
Their another popular menu ‘Kaisen Tomato Ramen’ （CAD 17） is served with Tomato-saffron seafood broth, which consists of ‘tomato-based’ broth fast-rising in Japan and adding saffron as North American style. Noodles are self-produced by noodle-making machines ordered from Japan. Chemical-free seasoning broth is prepared from natural seasoning. Pork Tonkostu （Tamari-Shoyu Tonkotsu, Salt）, Chicken （Soy Sauce, Mediterranean Salt, Awase Triple Miso） and Vegetable （Umami-Shoyu, Miso） broth are also available.
‘Ideas which have been in mind for a long time gave a concrete shape and the time comes when we can serve “new gyoza” to people in Vancouver,’ President Nakamura was delighted. ‘We would like customers to enjoy our new-concept-based gyoza and ramen. As evidenced by popular menu “Aburi sushi” served at “Miku” and “Minami,” Vancouver is the most appropriate city to try new concepts. Same as other restaurants, we’ll use as local ingredients as possible and as Ocean Wise as possible,’ said the President.
Opening hours: 11:30 ～ 22:00. Will open 17:00 on the first day.
