Eating at EatMogu with a future Mogul Richard Loat


Food and friends two of life’s best ingredients.

My special guest today is someone I’ve gotten to know very well over the last couple of years. In fact you’ve probably heard of him, Richard Loat the founder of Five Hole For Food.

Five Hole For Food is a 13 city tour taking place over 21 days in July. At each city they stop at they set up road hockey rinks and play street hockey inviting all passers-by to join in. All this street hockey though is a cover to raise awareness and much need food and $$$ for the 13 Food Banks that serve those cities. In fact since FHFF began in 2010 they’ve raised over 180,000 lbs of food!

Where did we meet up for lunch? Mogu – Japanese Street Eats.


Located at the corner of Howe and Dunsmuir it was the perfect choice. A short walk from my office and most importantly easy for Richard to head over to classes at Beedie School Of Business SFU where he is currently studying for his masters.

One of the best things about the food scene in Vancouver is our Multiculturalism and I love Japanese food so I’m excited to check out the menu.


It was an easy choice. Richard went for the Pulled Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich Combo and I went for the Pork Miso Katsu Sandwich Combo. Ordering a combo meant we also got a side order of Sweet & Spicy Chicken Karraage!

While we wait for our food we had to check out the cart. Beautifully designed it incorporates Japanese Anime and Food. I love it.

Once again great things come from small kitchens.

I’m heading over to Victoria for a conference so my next food truck adventure will be in good old DT Victoria. Stay tuned.
