From Peru to Japan… Philippines to Haida Gwaii… and Mexico to Korea, all with hints and twists from Chef Kunal Ghose’s Indian culinary foundation. You’re imagining dobosala cantina & ride-thru. An Indo-Pacific collaboration of South Asian, Latin, Polynesian, and even Indigenous dishes. At dobosala, reclaimed wood, concrete, and steel – coupled with our trademark thoughtful and attentive service – create a relaxed, modern cantina atmosphere perfect for enjoying an array of flavour-punched shareable plates and bowls, local taps, and inventive Indo-Pacific inspired cocktails. And for hungry customers on the go, dobosala’s innovative “ride thru” window menu is designed with quick service in mind. Tacones, noodle bowls, and cantina-crafted sopas are ideally suited for pedestrians and “pedal”estrians alike. We are open 11 AM till 5 PM, Monday to Thursday, and 11 AM till late Friday to Saturday. Come lose yourself in our diverse variety!
