How to cite eggs! It is the fourth Metro Vancouver location for the chain.

The fourth time is a charm for EPO Breakfast Co.Calgary’s North American brunch restaurant that just opened in West Vancouver.

The EPO began to crack last year by transforming the former Ambleside location of Vancouver’s Heirloom restaurant into an outpost of the concept that serves epic breakfast dishes.

The restaurant is located at 1390 Marine Dr, in an area that has seen many changes and additions lately, with more to come. Recently, Aburi Market opened its first high-end Japanese deli and grocery store there, and Vancouver’s French café-patisserie Thierry is also moving into the development.

OEB chef and founder Mauro Martina says he never duplicates a space with each new OEB, meaning this location sports a slightly different decor than its peers, though you can count on the fact that you are going to see bright colors and lots of chicken and egg inspired items all around the restaurant.

West Van’s EPO offers a modern feel with high ceilings and glass walls on two sides, so there’s plenty of light in the high-energy space. An open kitchen means you can watch the team hard at work, while the smell of breakfast delicacies wafts through the room.

What’s on the EPO menu?

When it comes to food, EPO works with regional and local suppliers to source fresh ingredients to use in the many offerings on their menu.

The company has a “lead with soul” philosophy, so it’s no wonder one of its calling card dishes is called “Soul in a Bowl.”

You’ll find Soul in a Bowl in OEB’s poutine list. But this isn’t a paper bin of gravy-soaked fries; the base – as with almost all poutine dishes – is delicious thick potato wedges fried in duck fat and sprinkled with herbs. For the soul in a bowl, these potatoes are topped with Saint Cyrille cheese curds, slow-cooked lardons of bacon, Hollandaise hazelnut butter and poached eggs.

Variety is the name of the game, however, you can also load up your poutine with an egg Maritime lobster and shrimp scramble with a rich Hollandaise (that’s the Lobster Scramble, which is available in limited quantities) or in versions with short Philly style ribs and peppers or duck confit.

Speaking of variety, OEB’s eclectic menu borrows from all sorts of familiar breakfast and brunch flavors and ingredients, so you’ll see things like a breakfast gnocchi carbonara, sweet or savory pancakes, scrambles, French toast creations, and even simple egg combinations. There are fried burgers, sandwiches or perogie, as well as vegetarian dishes and several kinds of Bennys.

For drinks, sip standard morning fare like coffees, milks and juices, smoothies, or cocktails; their Mimosa flight is sure to be worth catching – who doesn’t love a flight?

This “freshly hatched” OEB from West Vancouver joins its ranks in Metro, following its first in Yaletown in Vancouver, one in Burnaby (at Amazing Brentwood) and one in nearby North Vancouver. OEB is franchised in Canada and the United States with locations in Kelowna, Toronto, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Scottsdale and Newport Beach, in addition to several in its home province of Alberta.

OEB West Vancouver is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

Chef Jeremy Pang

The TV The chef chats with Lauren Taylor about the humble wok and why it’s so important that we use it correctly.

A wok is something many of us have in our kitchen cupboards — yet most people don’t really know how to use it, says Jeremy Pang.

The Chinese-British chef – who runs the School Of Wok in London and is a regular face of Saturday Kitchen and Ready Steady Cook on TV – says: “The mass market mindset on Asian food is markedly more educated today than 10 years ago, but the basic knowledge of what a wok is and how it should be used is still quite low. [There’s] not deep enough education around this main equipment that more than a billion people use in China.”

Born in the UK to Chinese parents, Pang spent two years growing up in Singapore (“Where I really found my love of food,” he says) and later in Hong Kong, but spent the majority part of her childhood in the UK – while ‘having the best of both worlds’ by traveling extensively through Asia.

Growing up in a “foodie family” – he hails from three generations of Chinese chefs – it was his father who encouraged him to pursue a career in catering before he died in 2009. “He and I had a few arguments that year; I did a three-month internship at Le Cordon Bleu, then I went back to marketing for an electronics company. And he said to me: “What’s the point? Why did you go for this course if you’re not going to go straight into the world of food?’ I guess I didn’t trust myself. But then when he died, I practically lost my job the day of my father’s funeral. A few weeks later he started teaching people how to cook Chinese food at home – and in 2012 he opened the first permanent location for his cooking school in London.

In her third cookbook, School Of Wok, Pang shares many of the receipts and the practices he teaches in school – weaving his way through Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Singaporean, Malaysian and Filipino dishes. “It’s a nice nod to the wonders of Asian cooking – and bringing it home without too much stress,” says Pang.

Basically, every recipe needs a wok, and it turns out, we may have used it wrong. Here are some of the mistakes you could make…

A lack of preparation

The cardinal sin of stir-frying is tossing the ingredients into a wok before you’ve prepared everything. That’s why Pang came up with a concept he calls “the wok clock”: place all of your pre-measured, ready-to-use ingredients on a plate in the order you’ll add them to the pan – at 12 o’clock. clock, 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock, etc. – before you even think about starting to cook.

“It helps people separate them and simplifies the whole process, which leads to much faster cooking,” says Pang. “It’s like the School of Wok version of mise en place [meaning to prepare and organise your ingredients] in French cuisine.

“Once you’ve got the ingredients ready, it’s all in one place on a plate, and you don’t have to look anywhere else – you don’t have to go back and look for your page in your cookbook.

“Suddenly cooking becomes a lot more enjoyable and a lot easier – and should be a lot faster.”

Thinking stir fries are easy

A stir-fry may be a go-to meal for college students, but it’s gotten an inaccurate reputation for being simple. Yes, stir-frying is quick (“One of the first rules of stir-frying is that if it takes more than five minutes in a wok, it’s not a stir-fry,” Pang says) — but that’s a challenge in and of itself. .

“There are so many intricacies to making the perfect stir-fry,” he says. “What’s difficult is that it happens so quickly, it’s very difficult to learn the intricacies of it in such a short time.”

Not using high enough heat

“You have to get used to the high heat!” said Pan.

“One of my catchphrases is never lose your sizzle – if you don’t hear something sizzle, especially a sauté, then you’re not sautéing – you’re boiling.”

Cooling the wok unknowingly

There are several ways to cool the wok, according to Pang. “Number one is stirring, number two is folding your ingredients around the wok, number three is wok tossing (essentially like flipping a pancake – push forward and a quick swipe backward) and fourth, which a lot of people laugh at, is what I call tongue in head (essentially like making an omelet, stirring with your spoon hand and shaking with your left hand).”

The third and fourth ways to cool the wok happen very quickly – “In seconds”, he says – and many home cooks fall into the mistake of accidentally lowering the temperature of the wok, when they don’t. do not want.

Adding new ingredients will also cool the pan. “If you wait 30 seconds between adding each ingredient, then each time it’s more likely that it’s turned the heat up in the wok again,” he explains. “That 30 second wait makes a huge difference to finishing the stir fry.”

Understanding how a wok can cool will help you instinctively control the heat. Pang says, “That’s what we call in Chinese or Cantonese, ‘wok hei’ – the literal translation is ‘wok air’.

“If you understand your wok hei – how to circulate the air around the wok – then you are a good wok master.”

They call it veggie-focused with “welcome price included.”

Translation: Folkea new restaurant in Kitsilano in Vancouver, has an all-vegetarian menu and they’ve eliminated tipping.

Folke opened in early June at 2585 Broadway in space freed up a few weeks earlier by Japanese restaurant Super Hiro’s. The 1,400 square foot restaurant seats 40 people indoors with room for an additional 12 diners on the covered terrace.

The new Kits restaurant is the first venture of chef-owner Colin Uyeda and owner-patisserie Pricilla Deo. Longtime friends chose the name to reflect their shared desire to bring people together through food and to provide a sense of community and connection.

“Our vision for Folke is rooted in a genuine desire for customers to feel enriched by connecting to our team, to each other, and to the food they experience,” Uyeda said in a press release. “This restaurant is the result of our collective passion for exceptional local ingredients and dining experience.”

Uyeda and Deo’s local and seasonal menu features dishes meant to showcase the abundant foods grown in the regional soil. The selection of small plates will change depending on availability and inspiration, and you might find items like leek and chard dumplings with xo mushroom sauce or sunflower risotto with kosho (a pasta citrus pepper) and spruce.

At the bar, you’ll find a mix of craft beers, ciders, and wines, as well as refreshing cocktails, mocktails, and homemade sodas.

The pricing of the dishes, however, was also created to support Folke’s “people first” philosophy. Tipping is factored into the price of the menu, which Folke says “allows employees to earn a healthy wage with benefits while fostering a cohesive work environment.”

“Tipping culture was not something that aligned with our values ​​and we believe this is a more sustainable model for our restaurant,” Folke owners added. explain on social networks.

Folke is open for dinner Thursday through Monday from 5 p.m. Follow Folke on Instagram at @folkerestaurant.

Two top Japanese chefs host a traditional tuna carving show in Sydney https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/two-top-japanese-chefs-host-a-traditional-tuna-carving-show-in-sydney/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 05:15:34 +0000 https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/two-top-japanese-chefs-host-a-traditional-tuna-carving-show-in-sydney/ “Traditionally, tuna is the most important fish in Japan,” says Dennis Oh, owner and chef of Izakaya Tori restaurant in Marrickville.

“Traditionally, tuna is the most important fish in Japan,” says Dennis Oh, owner and chef of Izakaya Tori restaurant in Marrickville. Large format. “The tuna cutting show is a highly anticipated event that usually takes place every year, often when the restaurant opens or at the start of the bluefin tuna season. It is also used as a measure of restaurant level – while tuna is a favorite in Japan, it is not common to see fish as a whole in Japan.

This month, Oh and Hideaki Fukada – head chef at the hugely popular Kuon Omakase in Darling Square – will team up for two tuna carving shows, June 10 and 17, at the Sheraton Grand Hyde Park seafood restaurant, Feast. The shows are exactly what they sound like: a whole Tasmanian bluefin tuna, freshly line-caught and flown in that morning, will be sliced ​​up by the two accomplished chefs in full view of the audience. Guests can bid on some of the best cuts of tuna, and Fukada will share a bit of the history and significance of the ceremony.

“Most people know that otoro is the most expensive part of tuna,” Oh says. “It’s the oiliest and most delicious part. But in the tuna show, kama-toro is the best part.

One of the fattiest parts of the fish, the kama-toro is the flesh collar, jawbone and gills of the tuna.

Those with winning bids can have their cuts served in sashimi and sushi, or (depending on the piece), baked. But not everyone will be hungry. The evening begins with cocktails while live music plays in the Sheraton’s atrium bar, followed by a traditional kagami biraki (sake welcoming ceremony) in the restaurant.

Guests can graze on lobster, Sydney rock oysters and tiger prawns while Oh and Fukada prepare a menu that includes fresh tuna from the show, as well as other dishes such as Wagyu yakitori, chawanmushi (cream savory eggs) with truffles and mentaiko (cod roe) butter. , and miso-glazed toothfish. Everything will be complemented by a dessert and traditional Japanese pastries.

Matching wines will be included on the menu, while rice lagers and sakes will also be available, along with a cocktail list, champagne and premium wines for an additional fee.

The Tuna Carving Show will take place at the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park on June 10 and 17, from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Book tickets here.

“Modern Asian Baking at Home”: Nearly 70 Friendly, Indulgent Recipes Open to Interpretation https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/modern-asian-baking-at-home-nearly-70-friendly-indulgent-recipes-open-to-interpretation/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://sushirestaurantalbany.com/modern-asian-baking-at-home-nearly-70-friendly-indulgent-recipes-open-to-interpretation/ AS OF MARCH 2020, Renton-based Kat Lieu was working as a physical therapist in the Renton School District.

AS OF MARCH 2020, Renton-based Kat Lieu was working as a physical therapist in the Renton School District. She was also a novice baker looking for a community: a place where she could connect with anyone who, like her, wanted to “be obsessed with Asian baking.” But she couldn’t find anything that satisfied her.

“If you Googled ‘Asian Pastry’ in 2020, you’d see something from a Western designer,” Lieu said in a recent phone call.

Knowing that representation is important, Lieu felt called to create a Facebook group in March; she called it “Subtle Asian Baking”. It was a place where people of all abilities could share recipes and cooking tips. He immediately gained popularity. Within a month there were 1,000 members; by December 2020, more than 60,000. Now, between Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Discord, “Subtle Asian Baking” reaches more than 350,000 people a day. Lieu also wrote a cookbook, inspired by the band; it is titled “Modern Asian Baking at Home” and is scheduled for release on June 28.

She began working on the book in April 2021 — asking the members about everything from their favorite ingredients to one-on-one dish clashes (“Do you want a melon casserole or pineapple buns ?”). All the recipes in the book have been written or rewritten. by Location and tested by 23 members of the Facebook group, working via email, text and Zoom meetings to send videos and notes of their successes and failures – ensuring that each recipe was as perfect as possible.

The resulting book features nearly 70 recipes, ranging from basic cookies and pastries to complex cloud-shaped holiday cakes, breads and pastries. There is a small introduction on the ingredients and a few pages on the technique. The tone is friendly, unassuming, even conversational. The recipes and flavors are those that appealed to his audience the most; matcha, ube, miso and black sesame feature prominently. There are recipes for milk bread, moon cake and Dalgona coffee.

“I am a home baker, a novice myself. I wanted to act like it was talking to a friend; the book is your friend,” she says.

Cooking my way through the book was a pure delight. Miso Garlic Buns started with a milk bread recipe, then used the dough to make a savory bun swirled in rich miso shallot butter. The pan of buns disappeared faster than a plate of cinnamon rolls.

The fluffy Japanese cheesecake was magical. Right out of the oven, it was a wonky, ethereal whisper of a cake. A night in the fridge (what Lieu calls it in the main note) “cured” the cake, making it more pastry-like. A butter knife practically lived on the plate with this cake; I think I sliced ​​off a little piece every time I opened the fridge.

The gooey and chewy miso brownies are gluten-free, replacing traditional flour with sticky rice flour. They have the famous bouncy chew described as QQ, a “Taiwan darling texture and mouthfeel”. It’s a bounce from the rice flour, and it gives the brownies (which already have a lot going for them, with a deep cocoa flavor and umami notes from the miso) an incredibly pleasant chew. Lieu says it’s her son’s favorite recipe in the book.

The book seems to forgive. Not only does Lieu admit how difficult it was to come up with the recipe for fluffy Japanese cheesecake (which makes home baker feel good if it doesn’t turn out quite right the first time) ; it also leaves many recipes open to interpretation. Add matcha to Japanese cheesecake or replace ube with black sesame in another. This is, for Lieu, the origin of the subtle Asian pastry.

For her, Asian cooking is not limited to traditional pastries, such as milk bread or mooncakes. These are also fusion recipes.

“A brownie, but I add glutinous rice flour and mochi – an Asian ingredient and texture – you slip something in there and you make it your own. Anyone can cook this way. It’s a matter of subtlety and intelligence,” she says.

Lieu’s favorite recipe in the book is Fluffy Taiwanese Snowflake Crisps, a crunchy, savory/sweet dessert with marshmallows, buttery crackers, chopped nuts, and dried fruit. She says it’s like a bar of Rice Krispies, another great example of subtle baking the Asian way.

“You can do it with any ingredient; you can mix whatever you want. It’s so moist and delicious that you feel like a kid,” she says. Who wouldn’t want that?

Caniacs, rejoice! Raising Cane’s, the popular fast food chain founded in Louisiana, has finally announced that its first Bay Area location will debut in Oakland at 8430 Edgewater Drive on July 14. as first reported by KRON 4.

For those new to the cult of Cane’s and its self-proclaimed Caniacs, Raising Cane’s restaurants opened in 1996 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where its simple menu of tender, seasoned chicken dishes has since grown to 600 stores across the United States. And in the world. In January, SFGATE culture reporter Amanda Bartlett described the delight one can expect once a box of well-seasoned, crispy chicken tenders is opened:

Raising Cane’s Louisiana-style chicken tenders come with crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, and the ever-popular Cane Sauce.

Phillip L./ Yelp

“A typical combo order is served in a greasy take-out box with three compartments, perfect for eating alone in your car,” Bartlett wrote. “You can order your chicken tenders in quantities of three or six (or opt for a chicken sandwich if that’s your thing, I guess). They have a distinctive flavor and I’d say they’re a cut above most fried foods you’d get at Popeye’s or KFC.

Sides for Raising Cane include coleslaw, crinkle fries and a piece of Texas toast sprinkled with sesame seeds. But the real winner: Cane’s sauce. Although most orders come with two containers of the sought-after dressing, many Cane fanatics order extra sides of the creamy orange-hued dip – or else suffer when your last tender has no more. ability to dip more flavor.

“We are beyond excited to bring Raising Cane’s to the city and look forward to sharing our ONE LOVE with the Oakland ‘Caniacs,'” Chris Esteban, restaurant manager for Raising Cane, said in a statement. “Cane’s is launching a wave of expansion in the Bay Area next year and Oakland is the first scheduled, so there’s a lot of excitement around our grand opening. We are looking for an amazing crew to join us in service to this amazing community!

Raising Cane’s serves chicken tenders and not much else, so the chicken sandwich here is really just a bun with a few tenders tossed on top. But guess what? These tenders are breaded and fried in-house, so they have a crunchy crust that breaks apart as you dig. Plus, instead of a boring mayonnaise, the sandwich gets a generous drizzle of Cane Sauce, the restaurant’s own hot and spicy concoction.

Nick Kindelsperger/TNS

The Bay Area is expected to receive two additional locations in Berkeley at 2580 Bancroft Way and Hayward at 26231 Mission Boulevard later in 2022. The new Oakland store will be the 73rd in California and includes a drive-thru and outdoor patio and is only about a 5 minute drive from the Oakland Coliseum. With its grand opening slated for July 14, Caniacs can now make a game plan to line up for a taste of Louisiana-style fried chicken tenders just in time for summer.

According to KRON4, Raising Cane’s will hire about 200 local crew members for its Oakland location, starting at $16 an hour. An ongoing career fair began Thursday, June 3 and runs through July 2 at the Oakland Hilton Airport at 1 Hegenberger Road. Job interviews take place every day from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Raise the cane for more information.

Of course, expenses can add up quickly when you’re planning a vacation for the whole family. Fortunately, Planet Hollywood Cancun is an all-inclusive resort. This means that once you’ve booked your trip, you don’t need to whip out your wallet if you don’t want to!

All-inclusive at Planet Hollywood means you have 11 bars and restaurants to choose from, so there’s sure to be something for everyone in the family. Don’t forget to bring tip money! A few dollars per meal or stay at the bar should suffice.

In addition to covering your food and drinks, so does your entertainment. This includes nightly themed events, sports facilities, swimming pools, water parks, mini-golf and much more!

3. Plenty of Room Choices

With over 600 suites, Planet Hollywood Cancun is sure to have rooms to suit every member of your family.

Their junior suites include one king or two queen beds and a sofa bed as well as a private balcony or terrace. If you need a little more privacy, consider one of the family suites. These suites range from rooms with a sliding glass door to one and two bedroom suites offering even more privacy.

You can personalize your room even more by choosing an ocean or garden view. Some even come with semi-private pools and Jacuzzis.

If you really want the ultimate travel experience, go for Planet Hollywood’s STAR-class treatment. STAR Class lets you enjoy the best the resort has to offer, including upgraded bathrobes in your room, STAR Class private pool, upgraded room service menu, on-site personal agent, and more!

Planet Hollywood also offers the option of leaving the kids and grandkids on the family side of the resort while you stay on the adults-only side of the resort. I don’t think it gets any better than that!

You can read all the advantages of the STAR class here.

Pro tip: This property is huge, but has concrete walkways everywhere. If you would like your room to be close to the majority of restaurants and the lobby, please make a special request when making your reservation.

4. Activities for the whole family

The family certainly won’t be bored while visiting Planet Hollywood. Whether you’re looking for the perfect place to lay on the beach or an afternoon full of competitive sports, this resort has you covered.

Little kids will love playing in the Splash Park, while kids of all ages will feel right at home floating around the resort’s lazy river. Of course, your family can also enjoy several pools, including an adults-only pool and a pool reserved for STAR class customers.

If you’re feeling adventurous, challenge your family to a FlowRider competition. See who can boogie board or surf the longest on the resort’s FlowRider. Please note that there is an additional cost for this activity.

If you don’t want to pay extra for the FlowRider, challenge your family to a game of mini-golf, tennis or basketball, all included in your stay. When the kids need to burn off some energy, but you just want to relax, send them to the resort’s trampoline park and playroom.

For those of you who like to exercise on vacation, Planet Hollywood Cancun has you covered. You can participate in indoor and outdoor classes, or just use the exercise machines and exercise.

Pro tip: I highly recommend joining a morning yoga class when visiting. Classes are held in a great location and really are the perfect way to start your day!

5. Meals and cocktails

The Planet Hollywood Cancun offers its guests 11 restaurants and 11 bars. With dishes ranging from burgers to sushi, there’s a restaurant here to suit every palate.

I’ll be the first to admit that food is often an afterthought at many all-inclusive resorts. I’ve been to many all-inclusive resorts that serve exactly the same food in their a la carte restaurants as they do in their buffets.

This is certainly not the case at Planet Hollywood Cancun. Their buffet, which is served in the ornately decorated SoCal Gourmet Emporium, is anything but a boring buffet. With plenty of hot and cold options, carving stations, and fresh cooking stations serving a variety of food choices, SoCal is the perfect place for a meal if your family includes several picky eaters.

Of course, the resort also offers plenty of a la carte dining options. Guys! Burger Joint serves delicious burgers and fries from celebrity chef Guy Fieri, while Gusto Italian Trattoria offers perfectly cooked Italian cuisine accompanied by an excellent bottle of wine.

On top of that, Planet Hollywood also has a sports bar, an Indian restaurant, a Mexican restaurant, a steakhouse, and my favorite, a Japanese restaurant. I especially like how you can dine and see a show when you choose to dine at the hibachi table in the Japanese restaurant!

The food isn’t the only delicious thing at Planet Hollywood Cancun, they also pride themselves on their handcrafted cocktails. Serving great drinks at the property’s 11 bars means you can grab a drink anytime. One of my favorite bars is the Blue Lagoon Bar, which is inside a cave on the lazy river.

Pro tip: If you love craft cocktails, consider upgrading to STAR class. STAR Class gives you access to premium alcoholic beverages and the Green Room Lounge, a beautiful relaxation area exclusively for STAR Class customers.

6. Kids club

Children ages 4-12 can participate in all of the fun activities offered at Planet Hollywood’s Kids Club. Even the kids’ club at this resort is hotel-themed. Children can enjoy many activities that stimulate their imagination.

Whether they’re singing a song, designing a costume, directing a show, or writing a screenplay, they’re immersing themselves in the land of Hollywood stardom. There are even performing classes that walk them through the process of putting on a show.

7. Planet Hollywood Spa

While the kids are having fun at the kids club, adults can stop by and enjoy a fabulous spa treatment during their stay at Planet Hollywood Cancun. You can choose from a wide variety of treatments ranging from hydrotherapy to full body treatments.

I loved the grotto feel of the spa. The environment is dark and relaxing with touches of soft amber light illuminating walls and floors in just the right places. Spending a few hours here will really make you feel like you’re on vacation!

Pro tip: Even if you don’t want a full body treatment, at least try the hydrotherapy treatment. After visiting a series of saunas, you enjoy several pools of water with jets that help wash away your aches and pains. At the end of the treatment, you are wrapped in warm towels and given a scalp massage. It’s incredible!

8. Visits And Excursions

When the family is ready to explore the Cancun area, you can make all the arrangements right from your resort. Representatives are available to answer all your questions and arrange the perfect tour or excursion for your family.

Some of my favorite excursions in the area include a catamaran trip to Isla Mujeres, exploring the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza or Tulum, snorkeling in the beautiful Caribbean Sea, having fun at XCare, or shopping. in Cancun or Playa del Carmen.

No matter what you choose to do, Planet Hollywood Cancun truly has everything you need for the perfect getaway for your whole family. Please be sure to check their website for current rates and more information.

Recently opened on the Near Southside in a historic 1940 building parked on Magnolia Ave., The Beast & Company is one of the city’s most ambitious new restaurants. A joint venture between owner Dustin Lee and chef Michael Arlt, the restaurant serves imaginative dishes based on the business partners’ globe-trotting travels: marinated olives from North Africa, lobster bisque with a Thai twist, rolls of Japanese milk and, among other dishes, Asian dishes Devil’s-style deviled eggs coated in miso and grilled nori.

The Beast & Company’s global cuisine may be new to some foodies. Here are the five must-try dishes of the restaurant.

Meat & Potatoes This 32-ounce rib eye is a real beauty, its perfectly cooked medium-rare interior, its skin expertly charred. It wears a crown of gremolata, a tangy Italian sauce made with lemon and parsley. Next, a huge bowl of Yukon mashed potatoes. Obviously, this is a dish meant to be shared. Otherwise you must be really, really, really hungry.

Eggplant Dumplings What could be considered an aperitif is here a starter. With three dumplings, there’s plenty to eat and enough variety in each bite — charred eggplant, seared bok choy, lemongrass sambal, in coconut broth — to make the dish entree status. All vegetables, to boot.

pork neck Cut from the portion of the shoulder that runs from the neck to the tip of the loin, the pork neck is a rich, well-marbled cut of pork popular in Europe but still looking for a foothold in the United States. Although it is often grilled, The Beast and Company braises it, ensuring a tender-to-the-touch texture. Worth trying the homemade scallop ravioli and seared foie gras sauce.

Redfish court-bouillon This Creole soup dish was inspired by Arlt’s experiences at a restaurant owned by famed Cajun chef Emeril Lagassé. In addition to sautéed redfish, the dish includes smoked mussels, white beans, mustard greens, all perfectly layered in a saffron broth.

Buttermilk Pie The old adage “save room for dessert” must be taken seriously here, or you’ll miss out on one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes. Cut like a slice of pie, a seemingly simple buttermilk pie is bursting with bright flavors: an addictive buttery crust gives way to an irresistible homemade blueberry jam. Wash it down with a dollop of homemade whipped cream and you have the best dessert this summer.
