OUR PEI MUSSEL CHOWDER

Chef Dave Mottershall spent 7 years cooking on Prince Edward Island. He went with one purpose, to learn more about seafood and there’s no better place than PEI. It was there he developed a real passion for cooking, whole animal butchery and zero waste.

He’s been making this PEI mussel chowder recipe for years. The key is in the ingredients – so don’t skimp on seafood. We’re proud to work with Hooked and Honest Weight for sustainable Canadian seafood.

SALUMI TO GO – OUR TAKEAWAY CURED MEATS

Curing meat is one of our passions and we love serving it at Loka. But you can also enjoy it from the comfort of home.

Now Toronto featured us in their recent article Holiday Food & Drink: Minimum effort, maximum party as we offer salumi plates to go.

You can choose what you’d like or leave it to Chef’s Choice. We’ll prepare it on butcher paper and vacuum seal it with labels so all you need to do is cut it open and slide it onto a serving platter.
