Jamila’s Kitchen & Grill is a dream borne from the mind and heart of Jamila, a passionate chef of Afghan descent who escaped Afghanistan with her family during civil war, and relocated to Karachi, Pakistan, where she worked as a chef.
After working in Pakistan for many years, absorbing the culture through language, art, and cuisine, Jamila migrated to Canada where she created Jamila’s as a hub for diverse cultures to always feel great and welcomed.
With a fusion approach to cooking, Jamila’s combines ethnic food from various cuisines such as Afghan, Greek, Indian, and Indo-Chinese.
Experience something special when you dine at Jamila’s for the first time.

Originally established in Tokyo, Japan by Japanese Chef Takuma Ishikawa in 2013, KOKORO Tokyo Mazesoba soon grew to become extremely popular throughout Japan and was recognized with the Best 2014 Mazesoba Award in Japan.
Growing globally, KOKORO has expanded its chain of restaurants to Canada, Indonesia, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand.
What is mazesoba, you may ask? Mazesoba is literally translated as mixed noodle ramen without soup, paired with spicy hot minced pork, raw egg yolk, seaweed, chashu, green onion, bamboo shoot, minced garlic, and more on top.
KOKORO makes all of their soba noodles in-house daily using multi-grain flour and Japanese technology to soften the water.
Choose from two delicious options available:
- Set Menu Option 1
- Zenbu Mazesoba
- Chicken Karaage
- Fuji Cheese Cup Cake
- Set Menu Option 2
- Mentaiko Cream Mazesoba
- Kara Karaage
- Fuji Cheese Cup Cake
Over the years, many have tried to imitate the taste of KOKORO’s mazesoba, but nothing tastes as good as the origin of mazesoba by Chef Takuma.
Taste the difference for yourself and see what makes KOKORO so special by joining them for Taste of the Tri-Cities.
