On Monday, January 7th we are teaming up with Seth Stowaway (Bar Agricole and HapaSF) to host Saigon Soul, a Vietnamese-inspired Soul-food feast.
Over the past month, we’ve been exploring how Vietnamese ingredients can amplify classic Southern cuisine. The dishes that have emerged balance the fresh flavors of Vietnam with the satisfying heartiness of Southern cooking.
One of the dishes we’ll be sharing is based on a spicy beef noodle soup one would find while wandering streets of Saigon. By adding collard greens and pineapple-mint relish, we’ve created a noodle soup that is both comforting and refreshing.
A second dish we’re excited to debut features seasonal ingredients wrapped in the style of Vietnamese spring rolls. These rice-paper rolls include Dungeness crab, quinoa, chicories and a citrus-vinaigrette.
The two other dishes we are offering feature shrimp, grits, and spare ribs, infused with Vietnamese herbs and sauces. Both highlight Seth’s expertise in crafting succulent and savory Southern fare.
Main dishes range from $12-15, and a full tasting menu is available for $45. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
