PASSPORT TO… CHINA

The Chinese New Year is the biggest holiday throughout Asia, celebrated at the turn of the Lunar New Year. 2018 is the Year of the Dog. We at Ling & Louie’s Asian Bar and Grill are celebrating by offering a special Feast of Fortune and Lucky Libations that are filled with symbolic flavors of the New Year.

The most impressive offering this year is our Feast of Fortune for Two. It is common to serve whole fish during the Chinese New Year, as it represents abundance and fortune for the coming year. This meal for two includes a whole snapper that is specially marinated, flash-fried and served with seasoned soy and sweet chili dipping sauces. It is accompanied by Szechwan vegetables and Char Siu Pork Fried Rice. This meal is enough to not only bring you good luck for the New Year, but also fill you up for at least a day and a half!

Our Lucky Libations, such as the Pomelo Punch and Ginger-Peach Sour, utilize ingredients that symbolize prosperity and good fortune for the New Year. We have also partnered with Sileni Wine Estates from New Zealand to offer some wonderful New World wines to pair with your favorite dish from China.

PASSPORT TO… JAPAN

Japanese cuisine is world-renowned for its highly meticulous preparation methods and refined presentations. Great Japanese cuisine represents the balance of the finest ingredients and skillful preparation. This results in pure flavors that bring out the best qualities in each ingredient.

For our trip to Japan, we have chosen to provide a cross-section of popular Japanese cuisine. For some items, such as our Miso-Marinated Sea Bass and Spicy Udon, we have chosen to provide authentic flavors as you would find throughout Japan. For other dishes, we have infused classic Japanese techniques with our unique American flair. You will see this in dishes like our Pork Katsu Sandwich and Shrimp Sumo Roll, which is a fusion of a sushi roll and burrito!

To highlight the cuisine, we have hand-crafted some amazing cocktails using Japanese sake, such as our refreshing Sake Sangria and luscious Coconut-Lychee Martini. For serious cocktail lovers, we are also offering a Green Tea Sour, featuring Hibiki ‘Japanese Harmony’ Whisky shaken with a house-made green tea syrup and fresh citrus. If you’d like a truly authentic experience, enjoy a sampling of TYKU Sake, featuring their Junmai Ginjo, Cucumber and Coconut Nigori offerings.
