Self-employed as the Director of Rubicon Food Services, which operates Boca in South Granville. This is a modest lunch spot serving Latin-inspired food to those on the go who are looking for healthy, bold flavours.
Our food is made on-site from scratch using locally sourced, sustainable and ethically raised meat. We also provide catering services and workspace food delivery options. With 15 years of food and beverage experience, as well as six years of retail management experience, Rubicon Food Services also offers consulting assistance for business owners.
What are some of the best places in the city to source Latin American ingredients and products?
I primarily use local business Horizonte Imports for our dry ingredients. There is a great selection of Latin products at Killarney Market and 88 Supermarket in East Vancouver. Fresh is Best is a great venue for those on the west side of Vancouver.
