Torafuku Dishes Deliver This Dine Out Vancouver
Torafuku the much-loved Pan-Asian eatery, is set to launch a not-to-miss menu for the Dine Out Vancouver Festival. Diners can expect an array of international techniques and flavours and plenty of surprises.
Dine Out Vancouver Festival
The much anticipated Dine Out Vancouver festival makes a delayed return, running from February 5 to March 7. Chef de Cuisine Baker Hsu presents an interactive and fun-filled five-course menu available to celebrate Vancouver’s largest culinary festival. Designed to be shared between two people, this feast features a set of Taiwanese steamed buns, rice, choice of salad, hot appetizer, main and two desserts.
Chef’s fluffy steamed buns are of a pillowy texture and served with whipped butter and sweet soy paste – a simple but umami-packed starter. Hot appetizers to include: Duck Confit Salad, with sherry-soy gastrique; and sweet Honey Mussels cooked in sake and yuzu. Chef’s Ling Cod with dashi, oyster mushroom, collard greens, fennel and jalapeño is a stand-out plate. Still, meat lovers will swoon over AAA Striploin with charred shishito peppers, grilled broccolini, anchovies and pickled shallots. For dessert, two refreshing tarts will be offered; Calamansi Meringue and Black Sesame Ganache, both served with fresh berries.
Available for $45 per person, Torafuku’s Dine Out Vancouver menu will be available for both dine-in and to-go, orders and reservations can be placed via the Torafuku website. View the full menu here.
Meaning “lucky tiger” in Japanese, Torafuku is nestled on the border of Vancouver’s historic Chinatown at 958 Main Street, offering elevated Asian cuisine by Le Tigre food truck owner Steve Kuan. Designed for sharing, the casual and inventive menu explores the borders of pan-Asian food with classical French and Italian influences. Dishes are playful in spirit and serious in execution, delivering vibrant interpretations of flavours traditionally found in Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean, and Vietnamese cuisine. Every plate features seasonal ingredients sourced straight from local farmers. For more information, please visit www.torafuku.ca
