had a really nice dinner here. lots of middle eastern, mexican, and “asian” flavors on the menu. I guess this would be considered “new american”.
sadly they can’t source enough pig heads yet so no pig face.
everything was good, the oyster, scallop, and pork shank were great.
space is beautiful, with multiple patios, this place will be a hit.
pacifico oysters, clam baguette, oyster mayo, white currants
it wasn’t listed on the menu but the oyster was also topped with a “vietnamese sausage” for a little surf n turf. dump the oyster on the clam baguette and eat.
grilled corn, spiced coconut caramel, cotija, tajin
solid. nice twist on elotes with a subtle coconut caramel.
sautéed green beans, fish sauce vinaigrette, cashews
good flavors, would have preferred the green beans a bit more al dente.
tomato & stone fruit, sesame-chili, crispy quinoa
pretty good. I think the stone fruit was a cherum.
pan-roasted scallops, chili relish, peanut-popiah crunch
not sure what a popiah is but it provided a nice crunch. delicious.
sticky glazed pork shank, shiitake strawberry, hoisin mayo, hot mustard, naan, lettuce cups
delicious, highlight of the night. the pork was super juicy and tender with a nice crispy skin. the naan was my favorite wrap. kind of weird I got red lettuce, would have preferring a butter lettuce for better wrapping integrity.
mango sticky rice, mango tamarind ice cream, pickled green mango, coconut cloud
rice was delicious but not too sure about the other ingredients.
paper towel count - a whopping .5, super absorbent and big enough to dry two pairs of hands.
