When we were kids, Dad would take us to the local coffeeshop for his morning or afternoon coffee on weekends and it was a treat we looked forward to all week long. He would let us peruse the menu and order something tasty—a dessert, a pastry, or a sandwich sometimes with a small cup of soup… whatever we wanted.
He would add lots of cream and sugar to his coffee and we would quietly stay in our seats — no misbehaving or next week’s date would be in jeopardy. Dad would always let us have a sip of his coffee and we pretended we were grown-ups.
Now that we are mostly grown-ups, we’ve been inspired by those lovely memories to open Oki Kōhi Espresso Bar to share some recipes we cherish. Crispy tofu or chicken wings in a spicy sweet glaze, a teriyaki chicken rice plate, a delightfully balanced sweet or savory bite of Asian inspired Dimsum, a cold blended drink, and always with smooth rich coffee from Espresso Vivace roasted in Seattle
Please drop by for a date with your family and friends. We are constantly reminded how wonderful it is to share something fun and tasty to eat and hope that you enjoy!
