Head to Dachi for a Sneak Preview of ‘Bar Soda Lite’, Nov. 7th

Known for her work with Boxcar and Fruit Forward, wine aficionado Tadia Rae is teaming up with Chef Billy Nguyen (of Top Chef Canada, and currently leading the kitchen situation at Pizza Coming Soon) for a new venture called “Bar Soda Lite.” As they gear up to establish a permanent location for their new project, the pair will be teasing the Soda Lite concept at Dachi on Tuesday, November 7th.

Expect wine and sake to be flowing while Chef Billy presents a one-night-only menu. Highlights include:

  • Pickles & ferments
    Silken tofu served with dashi and mushrooms
    Milk bun & anchovy butter
    Glorious Farms fall salad, featuring elderflower vinaigrette and crispy garlic
    Drunken chicken charsu with ginger scallion chimichurri
    Prawn and chive dumplings doused in sake, cream, and furikake
    Sake saku salmon with pomme anna, bernaise, and pickled shallots
    Koji pork belly combined with onion, bok choy, and a ramen egg
    Orange chiffon cake complemented by creme anglaise

Tickets are priced at a reasonable $80 per person, with cocktails, natural wine, and sake available for purchase at an additional cost. Given the limited seating capacity at Dachi, reservations are highly recommended! Bookings can be made here. See you at Soda Lite!
