FOOD & SH*T PRESENTS:
THE COMFORT ROOM
OCTOBER 19, 2015 & NOVEMBER 16, 2015
As we transition into a new venue--Kraken Congee--this fall, we'll be taking a break from our regular prix-fixe 5-course tasting menu pop-up dinners to try out something both new and familiar. We're bringing back some of the most popular items from our previous prix-fixe pop-up dinners, adding a few new items, and making them available for the first time on an a la carte menu themed around what we've become best known for: Filipino comfort food.
So, we've named this new seasonal menu The Comfort Room. In Western culture, "comfort rooms" are hotel luxury rooms. In the Philippines, "comfort room"--or "CR"--refers to what everyone else calls a "restroom." Many Filipinos transplanted from their homeland to the so-called First World have experienced confusing and hilarious moments around this semantic difference.
It's within cultural intersections like that where we've conceived and presented all of our menus in hopes of crafting an experience that shatters one's preconceived notions of Filipino food. Whether you've eaten it all your life or have yet to try it out, a redefinition is happening with each bite. Plus, what better name for a menu concept for a pop-up called Food & Sh*t?
The Comfort Room is a no-reservation, a la carte pop-up dinner. No reservations necessary--orders are taken via walk-up counter and seating is first-come-first-served. All-ages welcome with bar area seating for 21+.
