Night 1 (Date Night):
Night 2 (Out of town guest):
Started with the special Tamales that are on the menu. We of course split the trio platter since we had to try them all.
Here's a closer look. The Jalapeno Queso was my favorite, followed by the Pork Kimchee and then the chicken. But it probably goes without saying that they were all fantastic. A beautiful Latin/Asian fusion. Between this and last night's noodle dish, I have definitely learned to start breaking out of the box and ordering from their specials board, because these options are indeed- quite special.
Tonight was a hot night, so I decided to go crazy and not get the Ramen. It was finally time to branch out and try their Spicy Chilled Noodles. Holy guacamole! They are NOT messing around when they say spicy. I normally scoff when restaurants label something as spicy, but this dish really packs a punch. Orderer beware. It's so simple, but when the spicy sausage is served over fresh spinach with candied cashews it is pure magic. I was super skeptical of this odd combo, but it was absolutely delightful. On another note, these candied cashews are so good that they could be sold by themselves and make a killing. Just saying David Chang, just sayin...
