Chef Hidekazu Tojo of Tojo’s Restaurant launches a must-try Tojo’s Spot Prawn Kit, complete with an array of Japanese dishes that celebrate local ingredients.

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.
