If you are a fan of Aburi To-Go concepts from Aburi Restaurants Canada, then you are going to love this one. The group is opening its very first Aburi market, aka an upscale Japanese Washoku, in West Vancouver.

Aburi Restaurant Canada also commissioned artist and Kyoto visionary Hideki Kimura to create a line of home products for the market.
“There has certainly been a shift in the wants and needs of consumers over the past year and a half, and we at Aburi Restaurants Canada have continued to innovate and create new ways for customers to discover and enjoy. ‘Appreciate our brands,’ adds Dean Harrison, spokesperson for Restaurants Aburi Canada.
