— Founders of Amaru, Chicago’s Pan-Latin Eatery, to Bring Sushi Tasting Menu to PlantX’s Food Hall —
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — September __, 2023 — PlantX Life Inc. (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) (“PlantX” or the “Company”), the digital face of the plant-based community, operating a one-stop shop for plant-based products, today announced that Bloom Sushi, a plant-based sushi restaurant, will be added to the initial food lineup at the XMarket Vegan Food Hall as one of its six initial culinary concepts when the Midwest’s largest food hall officially opens to the public later this month, with grand opening festivities beginning on October 5.
The latest offering from the creators of Amaru, a pan-Latin eatery, Bloom Sushi brings a traditional Japanese dining style in which the chef provides a meal tailored to the preferences of diners based on availability, budget, taste, and seasonality. Omakase is short for “omakase shimasu,” which roughly means “I trust you, [chef],” and Omakase is roughly comparable to a “tasting menu” in Western cuisine.
“This will truly be a unique experience for the PlantX Food Hall community,” said PlantX CEO Lorne Rapkin. “Bloom Sushi will be an intimate event, with diners collaborating with an experienced chef to tailor a specialized dining experience, communicating about the foods they cannot or will not eat, exposing patrons to new experiences in a comfortable setting. Our initial food lineup of six restaurants provides an incredibly diverse set of options and experiences. Food lovers will continuously find new favorites, and try new delicacies, each time they visit, and the innovators at Bloom have ensured this with the Omakase concept.”
“Our intention with Bloom has always been to bring flavorful, healthy, and affordable plant-based Pan-Latin food to the everyday family, with an emphasis on small plates where produce is the star of the show,” commented,” commented Rodolfo Cuadros, the owner and James Beard-nominated chef of Amaru and Bloom Plant Based Kitchen in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, and more recently Don Bucio’s Taqueria in Logan Square. “Now, we are going to expose even more people to how incredible plant-based can be, in an innovative and fun way. We’re excited to be the first vegan omakase concept in Chicago at the XMarket Food Hall.”
