30 years ago, Ofra immigrated from Israel to Canada, and called Vancouver home. In her efforts to adapt to the new culture, she met with a few challenges; new language, cold and wet climate and very different food. With time, she got used to many changes, and even loved many of them, however the one thing that she could not fully adapt to was the food. Her palate craved the taste of Israeli delights: Crunchy Falafel, Creamy Hummus, Mouth watering Shakshuka, Finely chopped Israeli salad, and other dishes from that region.
After many years of being a business owner in a different sector, Ofra decided that it is time to have her lifelong dream to open a restaurant, come alive. In Dec 2019, she opened her first restaurant in Vancouver. She named it Ofra's Kitchen. The name, she thought, will tell her story. "People will come to my home, my kitchen and share the food I make", she said.
Patrons are commenting on the amazingly familiar taste, smells and the wonderful atmosphere. One of their patrons said "It feels like we are in your living room", another said: "I walked in from the streets of Vancouver straight to Tel-Aviv".
People who are not familiar with the dishes from Ofra's Kitchen, commented on its freshness, taste and abundance.
