For the final special event of the Winter Night Dinner Series at The Broadsheet Restaurant, a Richmond favourite will turn up the grill and serve some barbeque; Japanese-Korean style.
Next Tuesday July 28, Benjamin Cooper and pit master Daniel Briggs of Kong will take over the kitchen at 166 Gertrude Street to present a menu of Asian-fusion specialties. While Kong’s menu leans towards Korean cuisine, it doesn’t adhere strictly to tradition. Exciting new dishes are always in the works, some of which will be at Gertrude Street next week before they’ve been tasted anywhere else.
The banquet-style dinner will include dishes such tuna tartare with yuzu koshu, red apple, pork crackling and squid ink; crispy-skin wood-roasted salmon with kimchi butter; and kalbi beef short rib with jalapeno and coriander salsa. Drinks will be matched to each course by sake master Toshi Maeda of Sake Japan.
With The Broadsheet Restaurant in its final weeks – due to close on Sunday August 2 – Kong’s take over is the perfect opportunity to experience this exciting cuisine combo in a different setting.
Tickets for the Japanese-Korean barbeque by Kong are $100 per person and include a set banquet menu with matched sake. Vegetarian and vegan options are available upon request.
