What you'll do

Vancouver is known to have one of the best Japanese food outside of Japan (Made it to the top 10 list!)

One of Japan’s most famous street food is okonomiyaki, known as “Japanese pizza”, which is a savoury Japanese pancake containing a variety of ingredients that differs by region. The name okonomiyaki comes from two words – “okonomi” (meaning “whatever you like”) and “yaki” (meaning “grilled”) – which implies a mix of any ingredients grilled on a special griddle.

While many people may be familiar with Osaka-style okonomiyaki, its rival version in Hiroshima is not one to be missed.

Unlike in Osaka Okonomiyaki, the ingredients are not all mixed together – cooking a Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki involves layering of ingredients; first the batter, then the noodles, and then the toppings, which are piled high at the beginning and then flipped frequently while cooking. The final result resembles something of a noodle pancake.

To end off the night with something sweet, we will take you on a fun bubble tea-making experience! Besides learning in class how to make boba, you will also take home a bubble tea kit so you can impress your friends and family!

You get a choice of our premium teas or flavoured powder.

Our easy-to-follow tea kits are simple to master
and fun to make. Invite your family and friends over and enjoy the tea-making process.

Joyce was a wonderful host and her class was a really fun way to spend an evening with family. Would highly recommend the Boba night and Okonomiyaki to anyone who would like to explore some Japanese culture and enjoys some tasty bubble tea!

Joyce was a wonderful host and the experience was something we enjoyed thoroughly. Kana gave a wonderful story about the okonomiyaki and the varied versions of it in Japan and gave thorough instructions on how to cook and assemble everything...and it was delicious! The boba tea portion was just as good as Joyce walked you through everything in detail and the end result was incredible! I wasn't sure what to expect from this experience but I would 100% recommend it to anyone who even mildly likes tea or okonomiyaki as it was a truly wonderful experience. Give it a go!
