hey are living the Canadian dream at Shandhar Hut on Young Road.

The Atti family of Chilliwack worked hard to open an Indian restaurant about a decade ago, and the bustling venture has been growing steadily ever since. The youngest son of Sam and Kam Atti, Gordon, 26, warmly greets patrons with a smile.

8 8 3 5 YOUNG ROAD • ( 6 0 4 ) 7 9 3 -0 1 8 9

Only the best survive in Chilliwack, because customers always come back to what they know and love. Other Indian restaurants may come and go in Chilliwack, and Shandhar Hut carries on. They’ll eventually be taking over the lot next door, and even thinking about expanding out to Sardis one day. “Our loyalty has always been to Chilliwack,” he says.

It was his sister, Sukhi, who came up with the tag-line for Shandhar Hut: “The senses were meant to be indulged” — and it is easy to see why.

They’ve created a popular and stable business dishing out a staggering variety of authentic Indian dishes that are customized to every taste.

The fragrant hand-made curries, fluffy rice and savoury naan bread are beautifully presented on gleaming copper dishes, with Southeast Asian music coming through the speakers.

Their cuisine is influenced by the rustic flavours of Northern Frontier style of Indian cooking, but not exclusively. Their curries and other specialties come from all the various regions.

“Word of mouth has been key to our success,” Gordon explains.

Butter chicken, so zesty and rich, has consistently been one of their best sellers, but they also have a large variety of satisfying vegetarian options.

They’re proud of the glowing feedback and positive online reviews they receive daily. It’s not by accident they are rated #5, the fifth most popular restaurant in B.C. on Urban Spoon. Providing excellent customer service is key and Gordon makes a point of remembering what the regulars like to order. “We’re doing so well, we’re planning to expand!”

They have a huge, round tandoori oven that is responsible for producing the authentic Tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, naan bread and roti. Dietary considerations of their customers is always paramount. Gluten free? No problem. They have naan bread made of corn flour. Vegan? Lactose intolerant? Garlic

allergy? Absolutely no problem. Just ask. The matriarch, Kam Atti, is the source of all the wonderful recipes they use at Shandhar hut. She learned to cook at her own mother’s side, and took cooking classes back in India. It’s been trial and error in the kitchen to find what Chilliwack likes, but they focused on using the finest and freshest ingredients, and making the food as mild or as hot as someone prefers. Never been to an Indian restaurant because it might be too hot and spicy? Come right in and see how subtle, mild and flavourful they can make your order. “I always send my customers home happy,” Kam says. They are all living “the dream” — the Canadian dream — of being successful and growing a business from the ground up. The three Atti kids, Paul, Sukhi and Gordon, were all born in Chilliwack and raised in their home on Ashwell Road. Being local really helps when trying to establish and build on relationships with their loyal clientele, says Gordon. “We started from grass roots. We didn’t expect anything, and we didn’t know where it would go.”

They made a point of being versatile, flexible and accommodating to every taste and every individual dietary need. Gordon says his parents’ impressive work ethic, commitment and dedication through the years has been incredibly inspiring. “My dad worked at a saw mill for 34 years after arriving in Canada with only $10 to his name. It was honest, hard labour and he worked the graveyard shift. “Mom ran the local Pizza Hut for more than a dozen years before we started working on the idea to open our own restaurant. “But dad always had a dream. Opening the restaurant in 2005 was the realization of that dream. “And here we are now. Thanks so much to all of our customers from our family, they are our success.” Shandhar Hut, at 8835 Young Road, 604-793-0189 is open Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

legends bistro F or golfers and nongolfers alike, dining at Legends Bistro is a special experience.

Connected to Cultus Lake Golf Club, Legends Bistro features two huge outdoor decks with breathtaking views. Towering cedars provide the backdrop for the lush free fairways of the ninth and 18th holes. The 18th hole is surrounded by water, with a fountain bubbling away in the middle of a picturesque pond. The sounds match the sights. One table might hear the “thwack” of a driver meeting a ball or the jubilant whoop of a golfer who’s just birdied the hole. Another may hear the chirping of birds or quacking of ducks. Another

The menu at Legends Bistro offers dishes to please any time of day, in a style that manager Michelle Bahnman pegs as ‘West Coast casual with a touch of class.’ A breakfast favourite is Eggs Blackstone, two poached eggs on a toasted English muffin, with sautéed tomatoes and bacon drizzled with hollandaise sauce, or the new French Toast Stacker — fried egg, ham and cheese nestled between two pieces of French toast, drizzled with maple syrup and served with hash browns.

What really sets them apart is that everything is made from scratch, including their delicious gravies made from roast drippings. “We never make gravy by tearing open a package. We make our food fresh, we’re not just reheating.”

here’s something new on the horizon for fans of Japanese food in Chilliwack. The husband and wife team of June Kim and Daniel Cho have recently opened Kokomi Sushi in the Vedder Crossing Plaza near SaveOnFoods in Sardis. But while the couple are new to that location – and new to Chilliwack – they are not new to Japanese food. The couple have worked in restaurants for over 19 years, starting in Toronto. They then operated a successful restaurant in Kingston, Ont. for 5 years before opening

their Sardis location in February. It is a warm and comfortable space, made even brighter by June’s friendly smile. “We treat our customers as our own guest,” she says softly. The menu is expansive, and always evolving. Chef Cho is always looking for new ways to improve, June says, seeking perfection in even the way the rice is prepared. “It really does make a difference.” Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used, she adds, providing dining experience that sets Kokomi apart.

Items, like the Torched Tune Role and the Wild Salmon Sashimi, can be ordered individually, or in combination trays for takeout. Both lunch box and dinner boxes are also available in a variety of combinations. Kokomi Sushi is located at 19 - 6014 Vedder Road. For more, call 604.858.5500.

“We really want to urge people to come and try us for supper some time.”

One of the tantalizing dishes she whips up is Chicken Cordon Bleu from scratch and barbecue chicken with a zesty glaze.

They get a solid crowd for lunch but some Chilliwackians don’t seem to venture downtown after dark. But she wants them to know it will be worth it. They put a strong emphasis on good customer service, high quality ingredients and a wide variety of menu items. They make all their own sauces and desserts, like fresh fruit pies, in-house as well. If you can’t get enough of Devika’s

“Our roast beef is so tender, we get lots of compliments when we present one for a catering crowd.” The Yorkshire pudding served with the roast beef is a big hit, too. Back in the restaurant, Devika’s signature dish is the Fiji Rice Bowl, a homemade curry simmered in coconut milk and served with steamed rice and naan bread. They offer the choice of chicken, salmon or prawns.

“Our customers just love our rice bowl.” They don’t mess with the menu too often because their regular customers appreciate the consistency and high quality dishes. Catering for larger groups is where she gets to be creative, making striking elements like a bassinet shape carved out of a watermelon. “I enjoy catering events,” she says, even cutting platters of dainty fruits and veggies into appealing shapes. It’s fun to make food beautiful. “You have to love what you’re doing, and we do!” See more at www.ddcatering.ca, or visit them at 45886 Wellington Ave. or call 604-392-9355.

produce gone wild I f you’re wild about produce, Produce Gone Wild is the place for you.

Celebrating it’s first anniversary, Produce Gone Wild is bringing all the goodness of the earth right to your neighbourhood. It’s fresh, it’s friendly, and it’s quickly turning a pocket of downtown Chilliwack into a destination for people who love to cook and love to eat.

Produce Gone Wild GM Vanni De Bartolo says the store’s philosophy is a simple one: Provide fresh and wholesome produce that is sourced as locally as possible. The result, says De Bartolo, is food that tastes better, stays fresh longer, but remains affordable.

Since its opening in November 2011, the restaurant has brought a new level of dining to Garrison Village. With the busy happenings of the village and the picturesque views of the surrounding mountains and the nearby fountain, eating at Garrison Bistro is the perfect place to have a dinner party, or even just a quiet

Despite being open only a year, Produce Gone Wild has roots that run deep in the industry. It is affiliated with the popular Hofstede’s Country Barn on the south side of the highway. And while the new store is different, its commitment to service and customer satisfaction is just as firm. When people walk into Produce Gone Wild, De Bartolo says, he wants them to feel at home. “We want people to know their going someplace where they are welcomed and appreciated.” The open and airy design allows customers see the bounty the store has to offer. They can find what they want quickly, or linger over some of the new varieties that have just been brought in.

Produce Gone Wild seeks out local produce and supports the Fraser Valley’s prospering farm industry, De Bartolo says. It also makes twice weekly trips to the Okanagan, bringing the goodness of that region to Chilliwack. But it’s not just individual customers who savour this bounty. Produce Gone Wild also has a wholesale division that provides produce to restaurants eager to serve only the best.

It was nominated for New Business of the Year in the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards, and it is nominated for a Chilliwack BIA “New Business of the Year” award.

Produce isn’t the only item you’ll find at Produce Gone Wild, either. The store carries other grocery items, like local cheeses, bread and dairy products.

But more important than awards, says De Bartolo, is the satisfaction of his customers and the knowledge he and his staff are providing a wholesome and healthy option in Chilliwack’s growing culinary landscape.

dinner for two. But it’s not only the atmosphere of Garrison Bistro that’s unique to Chilliwack. With recipes that are created in-house, all of the menu items are one of a kind. From the Salmon BLT, a three ounce wild sockeye salmon fillet topped with maple bacon, tomato, lettuce and dillcaper aioli, to the ancho chili linguini infused with a rich cream sauce with brie, the menu items are guaranteed to be a unique experience on their own. Using local and organic ingredients where possible, all of the food is prepared fresh in house daily. Even

the plants and herbs growing on the restaurant’s patio are used in the kitchen. While the restaurant has always featured two separate menus for lunch and dinner, their new menu combines the best of both worlds and ensures that your favourite meal will always be available – regardless of what time it is. With a different featured item every day, there’s always something for everyone. Whether you’re having dinner in the restaurant or curling up on the patio with a drink and one of the provided blankets, there’s no better place to be in Garrison Village.

uro Asian Cuisine isn’t your average Asian-food restaurant. While it still offers the traditional menu items such as noodle dishes, rice bowls and sushi, the Asian fusion style food sets it apart from anything else you’ll find in Chilliwack. From the Udon Coconut Curry, to the Soy Short Ribs, to the Volcano Sushi Bowl, you can be guaranteed that the dishes at Kuro won’t be what you expected – they’ll be better. While Kuro still offers classic sushi rolls, their menu includes specialty sushi rolls as well, like “The One,” which consists of avo, spicy tuna and prawn tempura.

#222-8249 EAGLE LANDING PARKWAY • (604) 392-5876

For those looking for something sweeter, the West Coast Sushi is smoked salmon with peanut butter mayo, and the Mango Prawn Sushi has prawn tempura, paired with house mango salsa and spicy mayo. “We like to have our customers have a variety of choices,” restaurant manager Karl Gibson said. But what makes the food at Kuro so unique, it that almost everything is made from scratch. “We utilize homemade recipes,” Gibson said. From spices to sauces, each dish is created fresh in-house.

The restaurant also utilizes as many local products as possible. From the beers available on tap from Old Yale Brewery, to the fresh produce from I Heart Endive and the Local Harvest Market, even the ingredients used in the dishes are unique to Chilliwack. All the fresh oysters are personally picked up from the city and the meats are marinated and cooked in house. Located beside Galaxy Cinema, Kuro Asian Cuisine is the perfect stop for dinner before a movie, or appetizers and drinks after. Get a full menu online at www. kurorestaurants.com.
