Disclosure:  I attended the event as media where all food and drinks were complimentary.

Story City Coffee

We started off at Storm City Coffee, an independent cafe in Kitsilano where their coffee is locally sourced and their baked goods are crafted in-house from scratch.  In fact, their house speciality are cream puffs.  Available from 10 am every day, their cream puffs are made from a light and fluffy chop pastry and filled with a variety of cream fillings.

For the event, they offered two kinds of cream puffs (vanilla and salted caramel) and Apple Mint or Black Currant shrubs (vinegar-based fruit-infused drinks).

Super Hiro’s Restaurant

Super Hiro is a Japanese fine dining restaurant that is chef-owned and operated by Hiroki Watanabe, who is Chef Hidekazu Tojo‘s nephew.   It is an omakase restaurant where you leave it up to the chef to create the multi-course menu.  We tried the Unkai (a savoury rice pudding with shrimp, fish on top), deep fried white fish with Italian parsley dressing and 2 nigiri (ahi tuna and snapper).
