We are excited to announce our latest collaboration with Japanese Chef, Ochikeron, from the YouTube channel “CREATE, EAT, HAPPY!“. I “met” Ochikeron several years ago when we both had personal blogs. She would blog about her recipes and her life in Japan and I was instantly drawn to her since I am in love with their culture! Fast forward to today, Ochikeron is well known for her very creative and cute recipes which are featured in magazines and articles all over the world.
When she approached us about doing a collaboration tee to celebrate her 2 year anniversary on YouTube, it was an easy “YES!”. Months in advance, she asked her fans what they would be if they could be any japanese food item and the most popular response was TAIYAKI!
I love potatoes and anything that involves potatoes whether it’s baked potato, chips, french fries, scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes, tater tots….well, you get the idea. I was happy to find out that Harmony from Flo Tea Room also shared my love for this so It only then made sense that our next HERRO X FLO combo would involve it.
Introducing… HERRO X FLO FRIES!
For $6.95 you can choose from 4 different styles AND of course it includes your choice of black/green/milk tea based bubbletea. :)
Food tasting at Flo Granville… it was a happy day.
BAKED CHEESY MEAT SAUCE FRIES – This one was my favorite!
This one was inspired by my childhood. After school, a friend and I would go to McDonald’s, order french fries and an ice cream cone and dip our fries into the ice cream. If you love salty and sweet in one dish, you’ll love this!
Flo Tea Room + Herro Hachi are in the mood for games and giveaways!
THE PRIZE? 1 FREE T-SHIRT + 1 FREE HERRO FLO COMBO EACH WEEK!
Who’s in?!?! I hope all your hands and feet are raised. All the details are outlined in this video and in this videos description box. This is only for Vancouver locals but if you’re somehow able to teleport Flo Tea Room’s bubbletea to your country, then by all means, please join!!! (Side Note: 5 Days of Deals going on in our shop from Dec 5 to 10… follow the deals on Facebook or Twitter. Great deals for those of you who live outside of Canada!)
Gotta give it up to Twitter once again since it is where this collaboration began. A few months ago, I received a tweet from Flo Tea Room asking me if I have been to their restaurant. I thought it was just another one of those robots/spammers so I was hesitant to respond but I knew about the restaurant and I have been there before so I just went for it. I was surprised that they continued to make conversation with me and later on sent me a message saying that they really liked Herro Hachi and wanted to talk about a possible collaboration.
A collaboration with a restaurant?!? It was a scary thought since the only collaborations I have ventured into were with individuals or small groups, never a restaurant! The more I thought about it though, the more it made sense. Their restaurant (HK/Taiwanese style cafe serving awesome bubbletea) matches well with Herro Hachi’s demographic, design, culture, etc and It’s a well known fact that I have a bit of an addiction problem to Bubbletea. It was a perfect match.
