Chef Yumiko Kobayashi refers to her dishes as the "As Much As Possible" approach to the local and sustainable mantra. Mostly vegetarian with flourishes of fish, poultry, pork and either beef or lamb or goat. Children will love eating and hanging out here. In the mornings, fresh-baked pastries and bread. Great coffee. Cultural Programming With A Bite: Sang Kim curates programs that revolve around Literary Arts, Culinary Arts, Food, Social/Environmental Justice, Food Literacy For Children. Programs include: Kids-Chen Confidential (kids teaching other kids how to cook nutritious easy meals). COOK/BOOK (famous writers cook up their favourite dishes while discussing their work with an audience). Sushi Making For The Soul (Toronto's most popular sushi making class makes its home here). And many more... Together, progressive ideas around food in the restaurant and ideas that mean something to people locally and globally will interact in the space.
