Mazesoba literally translates to “mixed noodle without soup.” Despite incorporating traditional Japanese ingredients like seaweed, Chashu, and bamboo shoot, Kokora Mazesoba is actually a more recent culinary invention having only been founded in 2013. This dish rapidly spread in popularity across Japan, and now with three locations in Vancouver, its following is growing here as well. Fan favourites include the salmon avocado don and the Insta-friendly blue Hawaii lemonade.
