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.

Ofra’s Kitchen Story
Ofra lived in Vancouver for almost 30 years. Occasionally, she craved the tastes of falafel and hummus she grew up with.
She searched high and low but to no avail. Well, where there is a need, there is an invention, right? She created a home-like atmosphere, in the Vancouver downtown core, Two blocks from the beach, where people can find the best hummus, falafel, and shakshuka all made from scratch, using the best , freshest ingredients, with attention to details, taste, and presentation.

“I know Ofra's cooking for years and it is the BEST! We had soup, salads, Shakshuka with warm fluffy Pita bread and Hummus with Falafel! Yummy! Such a great place with good music and friendly staff, we really enjoyed! My son (4yo) said that everytime I take him to eat out, we should go to Ofra's Kitchen :)”

Knowing how to make Hummus is a form of art and Ofra’s is the master artist . Ofra’s food makes your mind , stomach and all of your other cognitive senses screaming of happiness. The food is amazing and the most noticeable ingredient that you test with every bite is -LOVE- . Ofra loves making food . The Hummus is by far the best Hummus that I have ever eaten in Vancouver. It is smooth , not acidic , all of the ingredients blend just perfectly with top quality olive oil.Overall I have really enjoyed the food and the hospitality and I do recommend for everyone to try out Ofra’s Kitchen . Thank you Ofra of making me a happy person with your amazing food and hospitality.
By far the best middle eastern restaurant in Vancouver.
Falafel and hummus as they supposed to be made.
