Smokin Buddha
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Located in the causeway of the Old Train Station in the Canal District of Port Colborne, The Smokin’ Buddha casually delivers your favourite dishes from around the world. Vintage maps, exposed brick and an open-kitchen create our distinct “shop”. Part industrial grit, part Asian zen- we offer a small, laid-back space to explore global eats and local Niagara food culture.

Our Story
The name and concept “The Smokin’ Buddha” was conceived with friends while sipping sake under a kotatsu (heated coffee table) near Hiroshima, Japan in 1998.
When we (Kevin and Kyla) moved to Niagara, we missed the fresh tastes of our travels to Thailand, Japan, Vietnam and Korea, so we started cooking up plates for friends and family – always happy to entertain over a meal.
In 2005 these meals took the leap out of the Sugarloaf kitchen and on to the Port Colborne Farmer’s Market. The first products were California rolls and curry pastes, sold out of a red Coleman cooler. Over time, the menu expanded (and so did the cooler!) and in 2006, the Buddha expanded to the Fonthill and Welland markets.
In 2007 “The Smokin’ Buddha” Restaurant opened its doors in the old train station in Port Colborne. The original plan was to serve globally inspired appetizers accompanied by craft beers and wine, modelled after the Izakaya concept in Japan (fun, lively, little pubs). This concept has evolved over time and the menu has grown to include our favourite feel-good foods from all over the world.

The Local Markets
Where it all began for the Buddha in 2005, the Farmers' Markets connect us to the best of Niagara food, culture and community. You can find us this summer at these local markets:

FONTHILL - Thursdays from May to October 4:30 - Dusk
CRYSTAL BEACH - Thursdays from June to September 4 - 9pm

Rick’s Auto Sales, Owned and Operated by: Rick Armenti

Serving the Port Colborne and surrounding area since 2005.


I found Rick's Auto Sales via auto trader. We were in need of van for our growing family. We did a trade in. Rick was an honest, straight forward salesman. He has a small lot of cars, mostly middle class, with a few higher end models but what impressed me most was his integrity during the deal. It turned out that after we made our deal, the van I was purchasing needed some more work. Instead of letting me walk away with a car I would immediately need to put money into, Rick ate the cost did the repairs himself and made sure the car I was driving away with was the best it could be. This kind of honesty is applauded and well respected. I would recommend anyone to see Rick if you are in the market for a used car. His integrity alone is worth it. ~ Kyle M.

The service was excellent. The vehicle was more than prepared for purchase. Rick went out of his way to make sure that we received the best possible treatment. Will definitely do business with him again in the future. ~ John P.

Rick's is a small used car dealership with a decent set of clean, used vehicles. The cars there are very realistic "middle class" vehicles. Nothing too fancy and nothing too low-end. I picked up a compact SUV from Rick for a reasonable price. The transaction went smoothly from test drive to drive home. Their location may or may not be the most convenient depending on where you are located but they do deserve bonus points for friendly service. ~ Anthony S.

If your looking for friendly, fast, and caring service this is a great place to go. I test drove on very cold days and Rick had the car running ahead of time so they were warm for the drive. Very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. I also never once felt pressured. All around, a great experience. I bought a lovely 2011 Kia Sorrento, at an unbeatable price.~ Ashley O.
