Zengo introduces its “Test Kitchen” series this month. Every few months, Chef Richard Sandoval and his culinary team at Zengo research and develop new recipes featuring the cuisine and spirits of one Latin and one Asian country. The result is a menu of specialty small plates and cocktails that showcase the flavors and techniques from each region. These dishes will be new additions on Zengo’s menu, marked with a special “TK” symbol to note that it is an exclusive and limited time option. Available from October 2nd to December 31st, Chef de Cuisine Graham Bartlett is preparing Test Kitchen: Korea Mexico, which will be offered for dinner service beginning at 5 PM.
Korea Mexico’s menu will showcase five plates with new interpretations such as Ceviche Dorado, with mahi-mahi, aji panca, kimchee puree, cucumber and cantaloupe; Korean Fried Chicken with fermented chile, roasted corn-potato salad and pickle chayote; Adobo Roasted Chicken with bok choy kimchee, chorizo and potato in a garlic-lemon-chicken jus and Hot Stone Bibimbap of pork belly, prawns, sushi rice, Asian vegetables, salsa roja topped with a fried egg. The Korea Mexico menu items range in price from $11-$27.
