Toronto – A new condiment is making waves in the city.
Okazu is made locally by Jess Mantell, the founder and owner of Abokichi, a retail shop that specializes in Onigiri – Japanese rice balls – and also sells sandwiches, salads and snacks.
Okazu retails for $9.99 for a 250-mL jar. It comes in two flavours: chili and curry. For now consumers can find it at Abokichi and in gourmet food stores and farmer’s markets in the Toronto area.
The sesame/sunflower oil-based condiment contains fried garlic and onion bits, sesame seeds, chili powder, miso, soy and sugar.
