Pop-up restaurant by ex-Momofuku Ko chef who’s now working at a startup and wanted to get back into the kitchen. Billed as “a playful expression of culinary exchange and cross-cultural connections between China and Mexico. Prepare yourself for an evening of flavor bombs, social dining, and Chino-Latino dishes never seen before.” With the name being a riff on French Laundry and having worked for David Chang, this combination of my two favorite places (granted haven’t gone to Ko but Ssam and Shoto are Momofukus as well) made this a meal I jumped on before it sold out.
Almost everything was amazing, especially considering Chris no longer works in a kitchen daily. The shaved ice was a nice light dessert but didn’t have as many different toppings as I’m used to, granted this was the first time I’ve had it in over five years. Favorites were the slaw and beans. The griddlecakes were nice and chewy to contrast the softness of the pork.
