Claudio Aprile, the mastermind behind the Origin restaurant empire, has set up a pop-up food stand at Bayview Village to promote his soon-to-open Origin North. The pop-up launched earlier this month, but there’s still time to test it out and get some free food.

Over the next three Saturdays, the pop-up will provide free samples from Origin North’s globally inspired menu. On April 27, made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream will be available for taste-testing. On May 4, a shredded Japanese vegetable salad will be served, and on the final Saturday, May 11, an Origin North chocolate bar will be offered. Each pop-up runs from noon to 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, Origin North is progressing well, with the new restaurant scheduled to open at Bayview Village in early June. Fans of the now-closed Colborne Lane will be happy to know that Andrew Wilson, Colborne Lane’s former chef de cuisine, has been taken on as chef de cuisine at Origin North.

Bowls are another main draw. The Obi Wan Bulgogi ($15) has been the top seller to date. (We’re pretty sure that name has helped steer its path to popularity.) Beginning with a bed of black rice, the meal-in-a-bowl is loaded up with purple cabbage, roasted broccolini and a poached egg.
