 Green House Foods Corporation (headquarter = Shinjuku, Tokyo), which manages restaurants all over Japan and Asia, opens Japanese cutlet restaurant ‘Shinjuku Saboten’ at a food court (#3180-4151 Hazelbridge Way) of Richmond Aberdeen Centre on January 22nd.

 The Corporation has more than 500 ‘Shinjuku Saboten’ outlets all over Japan and overseas, such as Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong. This is the first time to have its location in North America. Saboten Canada is owned by Fairchild Restaurant Group (4400 Hazelbridge Way).

 Green House President Chiaki Tanuma said about the first expansion in Canada, ‘There is a lot of nature in Canada, so I personally like this country. Fairchild Chairman Thomas, who is our partner in Canada, is the same generation and got along smoothly. It took only a half year to achieve the grand opening.’

 They have steadily increased the number of the overseas outlets since 2001, and now have 70 outlets in Korea. ‘Especially, there is a lot of Asian at this region, but we proudly serve our meals to other race. At first, we aim to have 10 outlets in Metro Vancouver and hope to open restaurants.’ (Chairman Thomas Fung and President Tanuma)

 The menu is Tender Loin Set (CAD 8.50), Loin Set (CAD 7.75), Tenderloin Katsu-Don (CAD 8), Loin Katsu Curry(CAD 7.95). Saboten Canada has the same menu as Japan, but they serve Set with kimchi.

 Saboten Canada uses Canadian pork as ingredients. Sauce and bread crumbs are house-made by ‘Saboten’ as well as Japan. Green House Foods has own rice milling plant in Japan. ‘We focused on the taste of rice even in North America. We examined flavor, color, taste, and decided to use rice made in California. The rice might taste as good as Japanese rice or better than it. It will remind them of Japanese taste. We want them to enjoy good old taste.’ (President Tanuma)

 Opening hours: 11:00 to 19:00 (until 21:00 from Thursday to Saturday).
