Uncle’s Snack Shop
Uncle’s Snack Shop in Richmond is offering spot prawn two ways:
- Spot prawn with chilled chawanmushi, pho broth, marinated lotus and shiitakes
- Deep fried spot prawn heads
I have personally tried these and they are delicious!
Takenaka food truck is offering a jumbo size spot prawn sashimi. They are offering a BOGO deal ($6.50) on May 22 – 23.
Included in Tojo’s Spot Prawn Kit is a half-pound of locally harvested spot prawns, served with Tojo’s Special Sauce.
The spot prawns’ delicate and sweet flavours are paired perfectly with a dish of medium flavoured hake, also locally sourced, which is lightly fried with a breadcrumb.
A wholesome vegetable chirashi bowl bursts with spring ingredients including burdock root, wood ear mushroom and asparagus; the root vegetables and mushrooms of this dish combine for a most memorable umami-packed experience.
The kit is complete with a seasonal gommae of kale, swiss chard and broccoli.
Each kit serves two and is available for $88.00. Also available on the a la carte menu will be BC Spot Prawn Nigiri for $6.00 a piece. Orders can be placed online via the restaurant website here, or by calling 604-872-8050.
